We are always looking for ways to make life more simple! We’ve learned that a little preparation keeps us less crazy and saves so much time later. If only we could reach into our ever growing diaper bags like Mary Poppins and pull out exactly what we need, but with a few clear cosmetic bags and a label maker you can be one step closer.
+ a few clear cosmetic cases (we grabbed ours at the dollar store)
+ a label maker or some blank sticker labels
+ whatever you tote in your diaper bag (look for our on-the-go essentials below)
We found keeping related items in smaller cases keeps everything clean and easy to find. And, If you want to throw a few essentials in your purse instead of bringing the whole diaper bag everything you need is ready to go.
A little bag for mama is a must! We always have sunglasses and a lipstick on hand, if you have to run an unexpected errand you can just throw on some sunnies, a little bit of color, and you’ll be looking fresh. We also love Jessica Alba’s tip from the Honest Life; always keep a lightweight scarf on hand. You can hide a stain or spill easily and still look chic.
Safety first! Keep all your first-aid staples on hand in one kit. We can’t live with out kleenex, bandaids, neosporin, sunscreen, and antibacterial.
The diaper bag would not be complete without the snack bag!
Gotta love those binks. Keeping baby items clean makes everything less complicated, so we gave those items their own kit as well.
Don’t forget a bag of play stuff and comfort toys.
