What's In My Bag? : Date Night Essentials

I don't know about your house, but our house is normally on kid mode all the time.  School, driving, practices, driving, homework, driving, playing outside, pick up from practices, bath time & bed time.  After all that's done, do yall just sit down & pass out too?  Wait, did I see my husband today?

After 4 long months, the hubs & I finally have a date night planned! (More of that to come next week!)  Actually, we did have a mini-day-date a month or so ago, but this one's gonna be a really fun night out!  One thing that keeps me on-the-ready is my bag full of goodies (a.k.a. my Bag-o-Tricks) that I keep in my purse.  I was running low on some things so I went over to Walmart to add more essentials.

We have this amazing night out planned & the last thing we want is to feel crummy before our big night.  Enter the Emergen-C Chewables.  More Healthy Days, More Healthy Nights.  Who couldn't use more of that?!  There are other "mix in water" options but I'm all about the on-the-go choice.

My husband never stops moving.  Ever.  He works all day & then comes home to drag trash cans down the driveway, recycling bins up the driveway, cut down tree limbs, clean the pool, etc.  You name it, he's probably already doing it.  I like to have Advil Liqui-Gels on hand for muscle aches from all that hard work.  Nothing's faster on tough pain (among OTC pain relievers).

Another thing I MUST HAVE ALL THE TIME is ChapStick Total Hydration.  If you know me, you know I'm all about that ChapStick!  It drives me crazy when my lips are dry & this ChapStick Total Hydration instantly smoothes & moisturizes.  It's 100% natural & smells so yummy!  I ended up getting the 2 flavors I found in my Walmart (Coconut Hydration & Fresh Citrus) because I couldn't choose just 1.


This bag is in my purse ALL.THE.TIME.  You literally never know when you'll need something.


Here's a list of most of the things inside my Bag-o-Tricks:
Hand Sanitizer
 Kleenex
 Tweezers
 Bandaids
Emergen-C Chewables
ChapStick Total Hydration
Advil Liqui-Gels
Hand Sanitizer
Phone Charger
Ear buds
Ponytail holders
Notepad
Pen/Pencil


The nice thing about this bag is that it's so portable.  I can switch out my purse to a backpack, back to another purse & all I have to do is grab this bag & I'll know I have everything I need.  Besides money....I would still need money. (Note to self, make sure to also grab your wallet!) ;-)


Do you keep a bag like this?  I can honestly say it's so useful & easy to just grab & go, especially for a date night.  What else would you add to your bag?

  2. Haha not sure I'd call emergen-c a date night essential, but chapstick for sure! I use lip balm all day long.

  8. What's a purse and what's a date night? Diaper bags and staying home are where it's at. ;-)

  12. I guess I'm just not prepared because I rarely even take a bag anywhere when we go out lol. When I go out for work I have chapstick and hair ties that's about it. I'm a simple girl ;)

  15. Date nights are so very, very important! And they are hard to fit in with kids, work, and life. Glad to hear that you have a date night planned.

  16. On a date night I take a tiny bag because the rest of the time I am so laden down with stuff for my boys!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I've never thought of bringing Emergen C and Advil on date nights. I think it's a good idea.

  18. Your bag o tricks is such a smart idea!! I'm more of a "oh no, I forgot diapers in the diaper bag" type of girl. Eek!

  19. OMGoodness…that design on the Kleenex package is too cute. I am in love! I want to try that Coconut Hydration really badly!

  20. I always have a bottle of Advil in the house! You just never know when you're going to need it!

  21. I almost always have Nexium with us for date night. My hubby gets awful heartburn after we go out to eat, so I like to have it ready for him if he needs it. Great list!

  22. I just started carrying a smaller bag filled with essentials inside my larger "mom bag". It's been such a great feeling to be able to switch bags without feeling like I am missing something! Loved seeing the essentials you keep with you for date night! {client}
