Being organized is more than just a personality trait, it’s a lifestyle decision. I have put together 15 helpful items to keep on hand helping you feel refreshed and less stressed: organized people

  1. A portable battery charger has often saved me from my phone dying and there isn’t a power source in sight. I like Mophie or Waka Waka.
  2. The easiest way to remember to stay hydrated is to carry a recyclable water bottle. I also like the brand Stojo because it fits compactly in my bag and keeps beverages hot or cold. 
  3. Food that isn’t perishable, doesn’t easily spoil and can heat up with hot water: tea, almonds, apple, clementine oranges, little sugar and low processed protein bars and oatmeal.
  4. Small notepad, phone recorder or Evernote App and pencil to  jot down notes. Fun fact – writing by hand has been scientifically proven to help you remember things.
  5. I walk a lot and began using Band-Aid Friction Blister Block Stick and blister bandages to prevent blisters and chafing. 
  6. Hand sanitizer helps when soap and water is not close by.
  7. Handkerchief to freshen up from rain or perspiration or used to wipe down bike seat or chair.
  8. I am  on the go and never know when a meeting might pop up, so I began caring travel size toiletries with me including: dry spray deodorant, makeup, dry shampoo, rollerball perfume, and blotters [in a jiffy toilet seat covers come in handy]. Floss and mints too!
  9. Reusable Compact Recycle Bag to get groceries and doubles as a bag protector in case of rain.
  10. Depending on day an extra pair of socks. After 6 hours, it is nice to have a fresh pair.
  11. Fabric and Boot/Shoe Protector to keep feet, shoes, jacket, and back pack dry in the rain and snow. Having both warm and dry feet is one of the most important things to keep you moving and walking comfortably. Recommend spraying your clothing and footwear before use.
  12. Gloves with zippers on top are necessary – The zippers are necessary to have easy access to your transit card and keys, to avoid standing out in the cold or rain searching for it.
  13. Moisture wicking undershirts that can easily be removed and stored in your bag. So, effective that I often wear them underneath dresses.
  14. Small hand warmer to keep hands warm. Also, can be used to keep your batteries warm by wrapping a small hand warmer around the section of the camera that contains the batteries (usually the handgrip for DSLRs).
  15. Wear a hat outside to protect your hair from the cold, wind, snow, rain, and sun. It is essential to wrap your hair with a silk or satin scarf to protect your hair from being snagged by wool fibers.
