    I carry most of these things. Especially mints. I don’t like going up in anybody’s face with smelly breath. I also carry a comb or brush in case my hair gets messed up when I go out.

    Is the model from frame 11 Sonya Richards-Ross sister Shari?

    All of this plus a mini mirror, sticky note pad, pen, ibuprofen (never know when a headache gonna kick in lol), & bobby pins! Lol

    I would add a phone and also phone book with numbers. If you lose your phone or it dies, it’s good to have emergency numbers. Also, a list of your prescriptions/allergies for accidents/emergencies.

    I would add a little notepad and pen…so we can write down those important notes

    Shoot, I always carry my boxcutter and mace with me because I get out of night school at 10:15PM.

  • Ms. Kameria

    Yes, I agree with this list. Very well done MN. I keep all of these things in my bag.
    That’s why my purse is so d@mn heavy now lol.
