For most of the girls, periods always love to surprise them anytime and anywhere. Of course, periods do not know where are you, at your home or outside the home. Hence, to save yourself from this embarrassing situation, girls should always keep a sanitary pad or a tampon in their purse when they are on their periods or near to periods. For instance, if you are on your periods it is better to have an extra pad to avoid a stain at your workplace. If your periods are irregular then it is advisable to keep a sanitary pad or a tampon always in your office drawer or locker.

  1. A handbag carried during the day is usually larger than the one that you’ll be taking to dinner. No matter what the occasion, it is never appropriate to put one’s handbag on the table-it is considered extremely rude no matter how expensive or beautiful it is. We often place our handbag on the kitchen counter, a bench, and some even momentarily meet the floor so for hygiene reasons alone, it is not acceptable.
