  • 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)

  • 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)
