List Of 22 Things Every Woman Needs

Things Every Woman Needs

One thing I’ve noticed in my research as a personal journaling author is that the happiest people — those who have a deep sense of self-love and purpose — always notice the beauty in the ordinary.

When their lives become more complicated, they still find time to appreciate the little things.

There are little things every woman needs that should have in her arsenal. All of them aren’t necessary for every situation. Definitely not. However, take a look at this list to see if there are any items that could be added or modified. You can also be grateful for the little things in life (like a bra that actually fits! ), and by doing so, you’ll discover gratitude for what you already have.

1. A secret spot in the house for chocolate.
2. A bra that fits.
3. A sharp pair of scissors, also kept in a secret spot so they never vanish or get dulled when you most need them.
4. A favorite nonprofit to give time or money.
5. A small but great collection of stationery—plain note cards, sympathy cards, birthday cards, postcards, extra envelopes, and stamps.
6. A favorite signature pen.
7. A little confidence-boosting lipgloss, nail polish, or necklace
8. A movie you’ve seen so many times you can quote verbatim.
9. A really good kitchen knife.
10. A subscription to something that arrives at your door—magazine, clothes, coffee of the month, a curated book collection, or even household supplies.
