What we have here:
- Emergency Money (hey, you never know)
- Tooth Brush
- Lip Balm
- Your favorite soap (your signature scent!)
- A bag or travel box to bring the soap home in
- Nail clippers
- Safety pins
- Nail brush
- Hair brush
- Deodorant (I prefer antiperspirant/deodorant)
- Spare blades (I use Dollar Shave Club)
- Shaving soap
- Shaving brush
- Dual purpose lotion / after-shave balm
