Meal Kits: We all know political campaigns are fueled by pizza and beer, but we love that Home Chef has 15 minute express meals, and some only need a microwave.

Carryall Bag: Your political bag needs to be nice enough for a donor meeting and sturdy enough for carrying all your laptop, change of clothes and all of the campaign supplies. That’s why we LOVE Portland Leather Goods. Their bags super cut and come in a variety of sizes and styles. They are full-grain leather and will stand up to the wear and tear of a your political lifestyle.

One-Stop Business Management: In politics you have enough going on. Simplicity is your best friend when it comes to managing your business (or campaign). That’s why we 100% recommend using Zoho for your email, chat, bookkeeping, and about 100 other services they include in their Zoho One membership.
