It's all in the bag for Odette Annable, who tends to fill her Rebecca Minkoff tote (rebeccaminkoff.com) to the brim.
"I get carried away. I can't have it be too small because I'll leave everything behind, but if it's too big my bag will be 50 pounds," she admits to Us Weekly about her camel-colored satchel.
Below, the House actress, 26, dishes on what must-haves are important enough to make the cut.
"I have a basic black Balenciaga wallet (balenciaga.com). I'm kind of in between organized and messy so if I have the right things to keep me organized, it's easier for me to stay that way. If I don't have the right tools, I'm a train wreck. Also, this wallet can double as a clutch!"
"Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream ($17, elizabetharden.com) is a miracle! My lips tend to get dry a lot and it's the only thing that really heals them. You can use it for dry skin too — it's an all around great product to have."
To protect her eyes from the sun, Annable relies on her two favorite Ray Ban classic styles: Aviators ($139, ray-ban.com) and Wayfarers ($145, ray-ban.com). "Sometimes I lose them, so I have to keep two with me — one in my car, one in my bag."
"I love Colgate Wisps ($7.99 for 16, drugstore.com). It's a little toothbrush with mouthwash in the middle and you don't need water. It's a good way to stay fresh after lunch or between meals."
"I'm kind of a crazy person about hand sanitizer. I carry the plain ones that smell like aloe, from Target or CVS. I also like Jao Hand Refresher ($7, jaostore.com) — it smells like lavender."
For perfume, Annable likes to spritz on Kai Eau de Parfum ($48, kaifragrance.com). "I have the little roll-on stick. It smells so good and it's small and compact."
The actress explains to Us that she usually has a pink, a red and a nude YSL Lipstick ($30, sephora.com) on hand just in case. "The pink can double as a blush in a pinch too!"
