Kleenex Go Anywhere Pack
I feel like I always need a tissue for something all. the. time. I love that Kleenex Go Anywhere Packs have a strap to attach to my bag’s handle so they don’t get crushed or lost amid the chaos inside and are easily accessible. These have quickly become a must-have in my bag. I love that they’re a refillable on-the-go solution with an easy open top. I picked mine up at Wal-Mart.
For me! I keep a bottle of water with me at all times. Even if I’m not actually thirsty, I always (always) feel parched the second I realize I don’t have water with me.
I keep two snacks per kid with me all the time. Usually a squeeze pouch of applesauce or something similar and crackers or cookies of some sort. I have this really bad habit of keeping my kids out past lunchtime so it helps having something quick that I can hand them in the back seat to hold them over until we get home.
I usually keep the giant ring rattle pictured with me. My toddler calls it her “watch” and likes to wear it on her wrist. I always bust it out when she starts to get antsy and she entertains herself with it for awhile. I keep some back-up toys and books in my car in case I need them.
Can’t leave home without a cup of fluids for my girl! I always keep water for her with me. Even though her cups don’t spill, I refrain from juices just in case the lid comes loose or something.
I love purse-sized hand-sanitizer! I don’t really need to explain the need for this, do I?
Extra Hair Ties
My girls and I have a lot of hair and we always seem to be losing our hair ties. I keep 3 extras with me at all times – one for each of us – just in case the one in our hair breaks or falls out.
One Diaper and a Few Wipes
I don’t keep crazy amounts in my bag but do keep spares in the diaper bag I keep in my car. My 2.5 year old is just starting to potty train so that diaper will soon be replaced with a pull-up.
Also in my bag is:
- Roll-up diaper changing pad
- My wallet
- Lip balm
- Hand/body lotion
- Small tube of diaper cream
- Lip gloss
- Mattifying face powder
- Bobby Pins
- Travel-size hair brush
