7 Ways of Packing a Smarter Work Bag

Do you love your purse? The ones that carry everything you need, everywhere you go… from your job, to the gym, to the happy hour, to your post-work date. If you have the right purse, you can stock it right before running out the door and you will be ready for whatever life throws at you. Try these options. Here’s a guide to help you.

The Fitness Guru

Find a gym bag that looks good because you don’t want to carry something that is too bulky. Now fill it with your gym gear (deodorant, water bottle, workout clothes, and something to fuel you). Finally, add the post-workout needs, like the shower sandal, shampoo (in case you don’t have time to wash your hair), travel-size perfume, a brush, and a makeup kit.

A Purse for Easy Transition

Don’t let an obnoxiously bulky work bag get in your way! A sleek purse easily transitions from the office to the bar. Pack a slim clutch that can serve as a makeup bag and your going-out bag if you decide to downsize for the night. Add a wine opener, just in case you need it.

Purse for the Grad Student and Working Woman

The Lady Who Must Carry Her Lunch

Carrying the food from home is always the healthier and cheaper option. But do you have the bag for it? It must carry the cotton sandwich wraps, silverware and water bottle. And of course the hand sanitizer too!

The Lady Who Walks to Work


If you like to get your fitness in by walking to work, you will want a luxurious and lightweight backpack where you can keep the slim wallet, ear buds, a small MP3 player, the water bottle and your sun glass. If you have the right bag, then it will transform easily once you reach the office.

For The Woman Who is Always Working Too Hard

If you are somebody who always work late, then you need something that will keep you comfortable. Fill your bag with supplies that make work a little more comfortable, like a laptop, a portable phone charger, a sleek leather notepad, a pretty business card case, a nice pen, and a coffee mug for that fourth pick-me-up. Don’t forget the makeup remover wipes, face towelettes and such others. And if you plan to go out after work, then carry your red lipstick, and mascara.

The Multi-Tasking Mom

Women who pump on-the-go or at the office need a multi functional diaper bag to tote all their necessities. You must have the breast pump, a pacifier, hand sanitizer, a small blanket, a changing pad, plastic bags, diapers, wipes, and a burp cloth. Carry some toys as well to keep the baby busy.
