14 Things to Pack In Your Backpack On A Rainy Day

It is raining yet again! Horray! While I am happy that California is finally getting out of the drought, it is quite annoying to have to go to school or work when it is pouring rain outside. What is especially annoying is getting to class with your clothing drenched and you have nothing to change into. If you are someone that struggles to pack the right things in your backpack for a rainy day, have no fear. Here is a survival guide list of what you should have in your backpack for a rainy day:

1. A Working Umbrella

If you are able to invest in a good umbrella, get one that will be durable from the wind especially if you live in a rainy area like northern California. Nothing worst than breaking an expensive umbrella.

Buy one on Amazon.

2. A beanie or a baseball cap

Maybe wear it so you can save space in your backpack.

Buy one on Amazon.

3. A Raincoat

Perhaps also wear your raincoat to save room in your backpack yet again.

Buy one on Amazon.

4. A poncho for your backpack

Do you not want to destroy all your books in your backpack? Not to fear. Get a backpack poncho.

Buy one on Amazon.

5. A bag of your favorite tea

Most of the time, coffee shops will give hot water to you for free. Carry a tea bag so you don't have to pay for tea on a rainy day.

Buy a variety pack on Amazon.

6. A thermos

Most of the time, those places that offer free hot water will only give it to you if you have a mug. Therefore, carry a thermos.

Buy one on Amazon.

7. A muffin or some other pastry

There is nothing better to compliment tea with than a pastry.

8. A second pair of socks

Sometimes even when you are wearing rain boots, your socks can still get soaked. And there is nothing worst than walking around all day with wet socks.

Buy these on Amazon.

9. A ziplock bag

Just so the water doesn't get to your phone, put your phone in a ziplock bag or any other water protection case so it doesn't get destroyed.

Buy a box on Amazon.

10. Extra plastic bags for wet items

This way you can put your umbrella or raincoat in a bag when you enter a building so you don't get everything wet.

11. A trash bag

You can also make a poncho out of a trash bag if you don't have a rain coat. Just make sure it hasn't already been used.

Buy a box on Amazon.

12. A hair tie

I don't know about you, but my hair gets crazy on a rainy day and I always have someone asking me for a hair tie. If you have something to put your hair back in, that can make your day way easier.

Buy a pack on Amazon.

13. A hair brush

Perhaps you might want to get rid of your tangles from the rain.

Buy one on Amazon.

14. A dry cloth

If you wear eye glasses, there is nothing worst than your eye glasses fogging up from the cold and rain as you come inside of a building. Therefore, if you have something to wipe your glasses off with, I am sure you will be happier.

Buy a pack of microfiber cloths on Amazon.

And hopefully after this, you will have some room to fit all the other essentials for your day in your backpack.

Marching Through March

Some appreciation for the month of March.


I love the entire year. Well, for the most part. I'm not a big fan of Winter, but even then, every month has something that's pretty great. November? Thanksgiving. December? Winter Holidays. January? New Year's. February? Valentine's and Single Awareness Day. May? Existential dread during finals. But for me, March has always been my favorite month of the year, and for good reason.
