8 Life-Saving Items Every Woman Should Have In Her Purse
8 Life-Saving Items Every Woman Should Have In Her Purse by: Mike Brannen for Off the Grid News
Ladies, this is for you. When it comes to carrying survival items with you wherever you go, you’re extremelyfortunate. You have an entire purse at your disposal to stash as many survival items as you want. In what follows I’m going to show you how to cleverly turn your purse into a solid everyday carry (EDC) kit which might even act as a get-home bag (GHB) due to the size.
Speaking of which, the first thing you need to have is…
A Bigger Purse or bug-out bag
I won’t go into too much detail on what to get, but suffice to say that bigger is better, more are better and if you can get one with exterior pockets, you can keep a self-defense weapon there for quick access.
1. A mini first-aid kit
I’m sure you already have some sort of medicine inside your purse (for headaches, for instance). There are plenty of mini first-aid kits on the market but, if you want to save some money plus the joy of doing it yourself, even better. Band-Aids, ibuprofen, alcohol wipes, finger splints, antibiotic ointment, burn and trauma dressings – put all of these in a Ziploc bag to keep them waterproof and then inside an airtight plastic container to keep everything puncture-proof.
2. Key ring items
There’re quite a few mini-survival items you can have on your keychain and, as a lady, this is a lot easier because you can keep the whole thing inside your purse and not show. We men, the more items we add, the harder it is to conceal everything inside our pockets.
Some of the items to consider for your EDC keychain: mini-flashlight, mini-multitool, a USB drive, a whistle, a lighter or even a striker.
The only downside is, you’re gonna have to pick all of these items up whenever you’re using your keys.
