  • Spare flats (Choose a foldable pair you can stash away in case your heel breaks or a sandal snaps)
  • Floss
  • Lint Roller (Try 3M’s mini lint roller, which is smaller than a standard stapler)
  • Stain stick (A stain pen or bar erases mud spots from the morning commute, yogurt splotches from breakfast at your desk, and more)
  • Tweezers
  • Bandages
  • Healthy snack (A pack of almonds or an energy bar saves you from showing up to a meeting cranky when you’ve been so swamped you had to skip lunch)
  • Phone charger
  • Vitamin C packets (Defense against a cubicle-mate with a cough or coworker with a stuffy nose)
  • Fashion tape (The fastest fix for a popped button or a hem that’s come undone. Try this option)
