Whether I am working at the office or my favorite coffee shop I try to stay prepared by having all the essentials in one bag. It becomes my portable office, so I have to keep it organized.
- Stationery and pens
You never know when you will need to write something down, keep it on you just in case.
- Portable phone/laptop charger
It can be stressful to have a dying battery and no way to charge it. Keep portable chargers in your bag otherwise your workday may end sooner than expected.
- Mask & hand sanitizer
Masks and hand sanitizers are a normalcy in today’s world. Keep yourself and your colleagues healthy.
Having your own set of headphones allows you to take private phone calls or listen to music or audiobooks while you are working or on the go.
Bad breath is a turn off! After a long day you can lose your nice smelling breath so be sure to carry mints or gum.
Accidents happen so it is good to keep tissues, a comb, lip balm, lotion, or anything else you may need close to you.
- Business cards
You may create some new business on the go! Keeping a business card will make it easy for possible clients to get in contact with you, plus it looks more professional.
Including these items in your office bag will make you prepared for any situation and appear more presentable to both clients and co-workers.
