These 6 easy-to-pack items will have you prepared and ready to tackle any work scenario like a true profesh.
Pen For Jotting Things Down- Once upon a time someone gave me this piece of advice, and I’m so glad they did. You want to be the girl with the pen–especially in a professional environment. It’s the easiest way to seem prepared and on top of your ish. To seal the deal, throw a little notebook in there, too.
Phone Charger to Stay in Touch- Do I even have to say this? Everyone knows that your phone does all the things…except charge itself. That is your one job. If you really want to nail it, get an extended battery phone case so you’ll never have that empty feeling you get when you have to be a human without LTE.
Flats For Quick Maneuvering – I’m all for grinning and bearing it in the name of fashion, but there are limits to the torture you should put yourself through. If your boss asks you to run a quick errand, the last thing you want holding you back is your choice of footwear.
Mints or Gum to Keep it Fresh- Bad breath can happen to good people. We’re all just one onion-y salad away from offending those close to us, so having some mints handy is a good idea. Even (especially) for sharing with friends and co-workers.
Umbrella to Keep it Cute – You know that feeling when you want to look nice for something, so you spend extra time getting ready, but while you were doing that you totally forgot to pack your umbrella, so on your way there you get rained on and end up looking like a wet dog by the time you arrive?…yea, me neither.
Cash for Incidentals – Carrying cash is adult-ing 101. It is sure to come in handy and it helps you track how much you spend on Happy Hour tips.
