A Commuter's Guide

I've been a commuter for the past five years now, so going back and forth to school has taught me a lot about patience and what to bring with me before I leave the house. Whether you take a bus, a train, or travel by car, there are several things you might want to have in your bag, just in case. You never know when you'll get a headache, when the train will be colder than usual, or when the bus will be late.

Here's my guide to being a commuter...

  • Bag -- a place to put all your goodies and the things you need
  • Travel umbrella -- sometimes sunny days turn out to be not so sunny
  • Sunglasses -- sometimes not so sunny days turn out to be very sunny
  • Scarf -- if you get cold or want to hide a bad hair day
  • Lip balm -- sometimes those lips needs moisturizing
  • Tide To-Go Pen -- a lifesaver if your food didn't make it to your mouth
  • Book, tablet or audiobook -- for when you're waiting or driving
  • Face / body wipes -- if you need to feel refreshed
  • Shine Eraser -- to get rid of oil but keep your make up on
  • Painkiller -- to ease the headache you got from listening to your teacher's or boss' voice
  • Snack cup or snack -- for when hunger strikes

Not pictured:
  • Cards -- credit card, I.D., metrocard, business cards
  • Hair ties -- to get your hair out of your face
  • Cash and change -- if you need to buy something now, forgot your metrocard, or need to park at a meter
  • Make up necessities -- if you need to reapply anything later in the day
  • Charger -- for phone or tablet
  • Water bottle -- for when thirst overtakes you
  • Hand sanitizer -- for after you touched something that someone else touched
  • Keys -- to get back into your house

Anything else you guys bring with you? What did you think of my guide?

  1. the mustache bag is so funny, it reminds me of the silly mustaches we made fun of :-P i always make sure i have a sweater, chapstick, my ipod, hand sanitizer, and lots of gum since i always end up falling asleep on the train so i need to freshen my breath!

    1. That's why I picked the mustache bag! I thought it was funny! A sweater is a good idea -- I always make sure I have one.

  2. There are very functional yet so pretty!! Lovely umbrella too :)) xo akiko
