Keep reading to find out which top products and must-haves should always be with you as a hard working young professional.
You can’t go anywhere without your laptop nowadays! Whether you’re working from home or going to client meetings, your laptop is a very important essential in your messenger bag.
You’ll find yourself being able to work anywhere and it’ll facilitate your ability to showcase your work during important meetings.
Not to mention, it’s great for looking up something you need the answer to quickly.
My favourite laptops are the Macbooks because of how seamless they are to carry and use. I use one every day and have for years.
Macbooks are truly worth the price tag because of how great the user experience is! Trust me, you won’t regret getting one.
Tissues is an essential that is very much underestimated!
Men need tissues just as often as women do. There’s nothing worse than sniffling in the middle of a meeting simply because you weren’t carrying any tissues with you!
Before leaving the house, grab a few from a near-by tissue box, store them in your messenger bag and you’re good to go!
My favourite tissues are the Puffs, especially when I have a cold. The reason being is they don’t irritate my skin and allow me to reuse them a few times because of their durability.
Yes, they are more expensive, but the added value justifies the price tag.
Carrying a lip-balm will help you keep your lips hydrated all day! Chapped lips are not attractive on anyone so make sure to keep that in check.
My favourite is the Burt’s Bees lip-balms because they work wonders, they are natural and they are easy to buy online.
Chapped lips are unattractive on everyone, especially in the wintertime!
Sunglasses & Glasses
Be sure to always carry your glasses with you. If you want to take your contacts out during the day or you simply need to read something quickly, it’s always practical to have them on you.
If you have light coloured eyes, same thing goes for the sunglasses. Let’s say you end up going outside on a sunny day, you’ll really regret not having your sunglasses with you to keep your eyes safe.
These are two key messenger bag essentials you always want to keep on you!
A Snack Bar
Every time you get hungry and don’t have access to a restaurant, your snack bar will come in handy!
As much as it’s not a filling meal, it will tie you over until the next meal and helps you save money on the go.
If you have room in your bag, I also recommend you keep a reusable water bottle. I love the Swell bottles because they keep my water cold for 24 hours and they are slim enough to fit in most messenger bags.
If you can go the extra mile and get a stylish leather note pad, go for it! They are so professional and sleek for meetings.
Noise Cancelling Headphones
If you take public transportation often or if you love working in a coffee shop, noise cancelling headphones tune out the world and allow you to work productively anywhere.
Yes they are an investment, but the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones are the best quality on the market and last a long time.
You’ll find yourself using them a lot more than you think because of how awesome the sound is and how effective they are at tuning out noise!
In this article, I’ve shown you which messenger bag essentials you absolutely need as a young professional!
There aren’t that many essentials you should carry, however these ones do make a big different in your productivity during the day!
