Whats In My Bag

I love reading posts about peoples lives. Getting a peek into their homes, daily life and anything else is always one of my favorite posts. I have a day in the life post in the works {its turning into multiple days in the life} and today I am going to share whats in my bag.


When I had Jack I had to have a diaper bag. I was obsessed with finding the cutest one, forget function I wanted cute. Luckily I found a great one that I loved. I carried that thing every where I went. Stuffed full with everything but the kitchen sink. Well fast forward almost 2 years to the day and I didn't even have a bag packed when Graham was born and I've pretty much been rolling with it ever since!


There are things you learn after you have your second baby that you wish you had known with your first. For instance, you don't have to take EVERY SINGLE THING when you leave the house. I have done perfectly fine leaving my house with a diaper, wipes, bottle and maybe a change of clothes {if I'm lucky I have all of these}. And you know what, we've survived! There have been no major instances where I have felt like I didn't have what I needed. Thankfully I live in a small town so if I ever did have an instance where I didn't have something I could run home if needed.

Moving on..since having Graham I have really stuck to carrying only one bag. Which happens to be the bag I carried pre Graham when I really didn't need much but a diaper and maybe a paci. I have found some new ways of storing things to make it easier, but over all I still stick to the basics. Now, I do have a backpack in the car that has extra diapers, wipes, change of clothes, and what not so if I did need it I could always take it from there.


I have the Louis Vuitton Neverfull and it is hands down the best bag I've ever had. It literally holds true to its name and never seems full. I can pile so much junk in it. I always joke that it's the Marry Poppins bag because I can just keep pulling stuff out of it.  

I always have a stash of lip gloss, my keys, sun glass case, formula container (notice, i'm missing a bottle!) random coozie, kleenex and then two bags that have other things in them. 

If you don't have the Big O key ring, you've got to get it! It's amazing and I never lose my keys. I also love that I can throw it on my wrist and grab a kid and no worry that my keys are going to go missing. 


I really needed a way to carry things for the boys without adding a ton of extra bulk. I follow Tote Savvy on instagram and have loved their products for awhile. I had been wanting to order one of the tote savvys for my bag but didn't want the big one. So when they came out with the Tote Savvy Mini I quickly jumped at ordering one. Its the perfect size to keep all the things I need for the boys but allows me to still have other things in my bag.



In the tote savvy I have at any given time, diapers/wipes, Puffs, pacis, race car for Jack, the best teether from The Teething Fairy (it hooks onto anything so that it doesn't fall on the floor), snack for Jack, and the Tote Savvy also comes with a changing pad!


 I have had this clutch for years. It is often my go to gift for family members and girlfriends, Its the perfect size to hold everything you need and can be easily thrown into any bag. It also comes with a wristlet strap and a shoulder strap that you can wear as a cross body. I keep my wallet, random gift cards, some medicine, pens, hair tie and a random footprint of Jack that I found.


As you can see, everything fits really nicely and I still have room to throw extra things in if needed. Usually I have tons of paper trash (guilty). Lists, receipts, snack wrappers, cheerio crumbs #momlife


I love being able to pull different things out when I need them. If I've got to run change a diaper I can easily pull the tote savvy out and take it with me. A lot of times if I'm just running into a store real quick I'll grab my wallet or clutch and carry that with me. I'm all about easy these days!

  2. Love your bag. And you seriously could be Mary Poppins! When you pull a coat rack out I'll clap. ;) Everything is organized and easily accessible, which is so important when a little one screaming for something. Ha ha

  3. I am obsessed with your bag. What size do you have? I hope to one day have one, but can't decide between the medium and the large! That little "kid tote" is perfect for the kids, but still allows you to have it all in a purse!

  4. Cute bag! I actually started only carrying a very small diaper bag when we go out because I carry my purse too. One Sunday I was in the nursery and my friend runs the nursery at church, so I sit down and proceed to get some chocolate from my purse and she thought it was hilarious that I had brought chocolate in my purse. Okay it was a full unopened bag of Dove haha.
