The items I carry everyday are my phone, a small wallet, keys, work badge, snacks, a bottle of water, iPad or Kindle depending on the day, a headlamp, sunglasses, extra contacts, eye drops, hair ties, lip balm, a small battery backup for my phone, charging cables, earbuds, and a small knitting or craft project. Right now my purse lives inside a larger EDC bag that I take to work. The larger EDC bag carries my purse, a book or two, my lunch, an umbrella, and a cardigan.
However, with that said, my purse and EDC usually have a bizarre assortment of other items that find their way in but not out. Socks? Check. Hand wipes? Check. A rainbow of Sharpies? Check. Sometimes even I'm surprised by what I pull out of my bag and I'm the only one that ever touches it
I'm thinking I might have to try a variety of organizer pouches and stuff sacks. Y'all are very good enablers
