Everyday faves | Chapstick

It’s time for a new entry in my now-monthly series about “Everyday faves,” to highlight everyday, or commonplace, things — or practices or habits — that make a difference in my life. For me, these posts are an exercise in self-reflection and appreciation.


I CANNOT believe that I haven’t yet done an “Everyday faves” post about chapstick!!! It is time to correct that oversight RIGHT NOW.

For decades, since junior high, I have had some kind of chapstick or lip balm within arm’s reach. My lips get so dry, so it’s one of my essentials that I literally carry around with me every.single.day. And I have tubes of chapstick in multiple places, including:

  • in my desk at work
  • in the zip-up pouch I take with me whenever I leave my office, seen below
  • tinted lip balm in a mirrored lipstick case in my handbag organizer, seen below
  • on the nightstand beside my side of the bed
  • on the side table on my side of the couch
  • in my makeup organizer in our medicine cabinet, seen below

If I somehow manage to leave the house without chapstick — it’s a rare occurrence, but it happens every now and again! — I have been known to buy an extra tube of chapstick while I’m out, just in case. Sooner or later, it’ll be put to good use! 😀

Oddly, for an everyday essential, I’m not that picky about the brand of chapstick. I have all kinds and brands stashed in the different places I mentioned above, including ones I’ve bought and freebies that I’ve picked up. For example, my dentist back in Portland always had a bowl of complimentary chapsticks by the check-out counter, so she kept me in stock all through my Invisalign process, LOL! Lately, I have bought more organic chapsticks, like the “Compassion Lip Balm” seen below, which is a local brand and available at my chiropractor’s office.
