Posted on February 06 2019

In today’s working world one can count on spending a lot of time at their desk. In fact, in some industries, you may find yourself basically living there. But even if this is not the case for you, we are all likely to spend more time in our offices then we do in our own homes - or anywhere else, for that matter. A lot can happen between the hours of 9 and 5, which is why it’s important to always be prepared. After all, you never know when your cellphone may need a little extra juice for the drive home or when the hot guy from the office below yours finally asks you to join him for happy hour later!

Here we have rounded up 7 items that every woman should keep in her desk: consider it your office emergency kit.

1. A Cellphone Charger

In today’s world your cellphone plays a crucial part in your day to day. Whether you are making after work plans, keeping track of tasks or appointments on your iCalendar, or planning your commute home with the help of Waze – you’ll need your phone. We recommend keeping a USB plugged into your computer, this way you won’t have to worry about forgetting it at home and you can keep your phone charged while you work.

2. Gum or Mints

Discussing plans for company expansion with the smell of what you had for lunch still lingering can be distracting and coffee breathe is no better. Keeping gum, mints or even candy handy will keep your breathe fresh the entire day. Regardless of what you eat or drink.

3. Flip Flops

Keeping a pair of flip flops or just a pair of flats at your desk can be a real life saver! After a long day of running from meeting to meeting with your favorite Louboutin’s on, throwing on a pair of flats on at the end of the day can help make the walk to your car a little less painful.

4. A Black Cardigan

Keeping a cardigan, preferably black, at your desk can come in handy when the office gets chilly. A black cardigan or even a great blazer is also great for giving even your more casual work outfits a more sophisticated look.

5. Feminine Products

We’ve all been there and no matter how great your relationship is with your fellow female coworkers, asking for one just always feels uncomfortable. Enough said.

6. Mini Makeup Bag

You never know where the day – or night may take you. Always be prepared by keeping a mini makeup bag packed with the essentials like facial cream, concealer, and blush. Also, don’t forget to pack your favorite dark lipstick for the after work festivities.

7. Snacks

No one is safe from mid-day cravings. Try keeping few snacks such as granola and dried fruit in your desk. They’re great for satisfying any craving and they’re healthy!
