Mom's purse is like a wonderland of unnecessary items that may come in handy. You're hungry with a headache? You have a hangnail and a dead iPhone? Mom's got you covered, and everything you need is in that bag. She's like Mary Poppins but way cooler... because she's your mom! Take a look inside every mom's magical purse because trust us, they're all the same.
Every mom has a mini pack of Wet Ones, and sometimes they've been in there so long that they've dried out.
Multiple brands in multiple flavors. Blistex and Softlips and Eos, oh my!
Gotta keep that mom do' in place. You never know who you'll run into.
Buy-10-Get-The-11th-Free Punch Cards
From her favorite coffee shop to the deli she stopped in once, these cards are plentiful and there are sometimes multiple cards from the same place. She keeps meaning to ask the cashier to merge them together, but she's too busy to remember.
Moms stop for nothing, especially something as inconvenient as a cold. And they’re always a yummy(ish) flavor.
Wintergreen or Pep-O-Mint, always.
Stains can happen anywhere, especially if Mom's got little kids.
Mini Bath & Body Works Lotion
Mom keeps her family's skin from getting dry while smelling like warm vanilla freakin’ sugar.
…and Matching Hand Sanitizer
Because she's classy like that.
No boo-boo is a match for Mom’s purse.
Every mom has a mini pack of tissues for everything from snotty noses to spills to movie-theater chick-flick tears.
Gotta get that shine off while she’s got her shine on.
Loyalty Program Cards
Moms are very loyal to their favorite restaurants, gym, movie theater, and stores, and they’ve got the cards – usually on a key chain – to prove it.
All the better for Mom to see you (and the road/menu/screen) with, my dear.
Old, Crinkled Receipts
Mom just sticks in her bag and figures she’ll get it later. Until they’ve slowly taken over the entire purse interior.
Literally all over the bottom of that purse.
Mom doesn’t know why we buy a pack of gum with a debit card, but she whips out that checkbook to pay for whatever she can, wherever she can.
And Advil, Motril, aspirin, DayQuil, anything to relieve a headache, toothache or any type of pain she or a family member is feeling. Moms are considerate like that.
Feminine Hygiene Products
Especially if she has daughter, Mom has every brand, style, shape and absorbency of pads, tampons and pantiliners.
Vera Bradley Something
Maybe it’s her lanyard, maybe it’s her wallet, maybe it’s the case for her glasses. It may even be the purse itself. Vera is definitely involved in some capacity.
If you’re hungry, Mom’s got you covered: almonds, raisins, granola bars, 100-calorie Oreo Thins. Take your pick!
To ward off all those evil men in dark parking lots she always warned you about.
Portable Phone Charger
It’s usually from Five Below and it’s always a bright, perky shade of pink, blue or green.
At Least Three Pens
From two different restaurants and a bank. Not even necessarily her bank.
Because the sun never sets on a badass. Plus, UV protection!
Mom’s prepared for any parking meter life throws her way.
Didn't your mom ever tell you that biting your nails spreads germs?
Busy moms need a place for their to-do lists, and creative moms need a place to jot down ideas on the go.
She needs to organized all the aforementioned stuff, it can’t just be floating around. The solution: lots of smaller bags inside the big bag. Bagception.
