5 Must Have Items You’ll Find in my Purse Pocket

I wrote about my experience with Poise Microliner as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #PoisewithSAM

Hee hee this post is fun. I’m cleaning out my purse which has been weighing me down lately. Toooo much stuff! When I come to my small inside zip pocket, I know I won’t be removing much from this area. These are my must haves. The items that I could need at any given moment. Are you ready to hear what they are?


1. Bandaids. Someone (including myself!) is always needing a bandage, whether it’s from a cut, an insect bite, or just a little ouchie that needs caring.

2. Business Cards. I do keep a few biz cards for my blog, but most of the pile is my Family Cards. They are super cute! I pass them out to new friends so they can get a hold of me easily.

3. Hand Santizer. Not that I don’t trust that my boys wash their hands after using a public restroom…but I make double sure.

4. My Guardian Angel token. Keeps me safe wherever I go.

5. Poise MicrolinerSuper thin and absorbent. Doesn’t take up any space, but there if I need it. Read my review on the Poise Microliner and my post on how LBL is a battle for many women, including myself. It’s a mom thing, right?

 I’m curious to know how your purse zip pockets differ?!

Made for Women #PoisewithSAM

I wrote about my experience with Poise Microliner as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #PoisewithSAM

Last month I chatted about the very personal message LBL. Hopefully many of you moms can relate to the issue, even if you weren’t comfortable commenting. I understand that! There are different triggers for each of us and it is all very personal, but have you ever wondered ~ Does this happen to other people too?

Today I want to share with you #PoisewithSAM – Poise microliners with Super Absorbent Material. I believe that they had active women in mind when they were at their drawing boards designing this pad.

Did you even know there was such thing as a microliner? I didn’t! It is designed just for LBL (light bladder leakage) and is incredibly thin. In fact, I would call it paper thin! I don’t think I’ve ever felt anything like this before. 54 liners fit into this little box. Don’t let the size fool you though. It has great absortion power and neutralizes odor also.

  • Each liner is individually wrapped to easily carry in your purse.
  • With absorb-loc core to quickly lock away wetness. Our days are busy and we don’t want to worry about this.
  • Thin-flex design moves with your body because I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to feel anything!


Whether I’m going on a long walk, practicing my Yoga moves or Hubby has talked me into going to Crossfit with him that day, I need something that is going to stay in place and do its job without me even knowing it is there. Are you with me?

Poise makes our embarassing issues a little easier. We can be assured that our secrets stay secrets.
