If you have a smartphone (hello, 2016), there's no need to carry around multiple credit cards. Plenty of stores have updated their keypads to support Apple and Android Pay. Just sync your cards to your phone, hold it up to the keypad, and presto — you've paid for your latte without pulling out the plastic.
Trade your bulky external battery packs and cables for a single wireless charging pad. This compact number from GYMLE (it's smaller than a coaster) will charge your phone or smartwatch on contact. (Note: Apple users need to add a receiver to make the charger compatible with their devices. But it's not a bad trade-off if it means you can stop carrying tangled cords around.)
We can apply lipstick on the go, no problem, but base makeup is a different story. Not only does it require carrying around a full, messy bottle of foundation, but it's also highly unsanitary to blend it in with germy fingers. Thankfully, this convenient cushion compact exists. The sponge applicator makes tapping on and building coverage a breeze. And with the luminous finish, you don't have to tote around foundation, concealer, or highlighter.
This envelope-style wallet is so pretty and minimal, you'll think twice before stuffing it with junk. Slip in your cash, ID, and phone, and leave the rest at home. Bonus — it doubles as a slim clutch for your brunch or shopping essentials come the weekend.
A sleek set of earbuds will drown out the noise from your morning commute just as well as bulky over-the-ear styles, while taking up less real estate in your bag. This pair comes with four different sizes of silicone buds (so you can choose the right fit), a fancy leather storage box, and a canvas carrying case — which is especially handy in keeping the cables from tangling around your keys.
