See that giant diaper bag there? I get about 1/4 of it to myself! The rest is packed with toddler snacks, diapers, wipes and whatever the toy of the day is. I try to make the most of my space by only packing the essentials. My essentials might look a little different from yours at the moment because this pregnant lady needs her snacks! Aside from the obvious wallet, cell phone and keys I travel with very little else. Check out my on-the-go mama essentials below…
Water – I always have some sort of bottle of water with me at all times. These glass bottles are my favorite because they are skinny enough to fit in the pockets of my bag.
Snacks – This pregnant lady gets hangry fast! Goldfish aren’t just for the kids. They make a great on-the-go snack. I always have a KIND bar in my bag too because they are packed with protein and help control my blood sugar.
Sunglasses – To hide the tired mom eyes, duh.
The perfect nude lipstick – Most of the time I leave the house with very little makeup on. Hence the sunglasses! But I always swipe on a nude lipstick or gloss.
Kleenex Go Anywhere Packs – On top of having a snotty 2 year old, it’s seasonal allergy time! The cottonwood is so bad around here right now. I love how the new Kleenex Go Anywhere Packs clip on to anything. I have one in my car and one in my husband’s truck too. I also plan on chipping one to our stroller handle for all the summer play dates we have coming up! You can’t beat Kleenex for softness and these are so convenient! Easy to grab and go!
What are your purse or diaper bag essentials? For me less is definitely more when also packing for a toddler!
Make sure you head to Walmart to check out the new Kleenex Go Anywhere Packs. They come in a variety of prints and are refillable! Perfect for any on-the-go mom. You can also save $0.50 with this offer from Kleenex.
