What's In My (Mom) Bag

Although it does have diapers in it, I just don't feel like I can really call it a diaper bag anymore.  I use it all the time, whether I have the kids or not, except when I run out real quick to the store.  Then I usually just grab my wallet or small little crossbody purse.

But anywayyyy...

Let's get into this thing.  It is the Around Town Tote from Thirty-One and I love it!  It's pretty big, but I like big purses.

Here is a look at the inside before I took anything out to take pictures.  This was a day I had been out with Kase for an appointment, but it's pretty much always the same.  When I get home from being out I will throw out any wrappers or random stuff that makes its way in here.

 Here is all the stuff that stays in the main part.

1. Extra set of clothes for Kenley
2. Wipes
3. Wallet
4. Planner
5. Three Orla Kiely bags from Target (more on these below)

I keep this separate Zipper Pouch in my van with an extra set of clothes for Kyla and Kase, which I have never had to use.  But you know the one time I didn't have extra clothes is when they'd spill all over themselves or something!

Since it's such a big purse, with only the one interior pocket, I have to use smaller bags inside.  It would drive me absolutely insane to just throw everything in the big section.

This first one just has some pens and note pads.  #plannernerd

This one is big enough for about four diapers so I usually keep two for Kase and two for Kenley (used one for Kase that day).  If I'm going to be away for the day or longer, I take a separate diaper bag.

 This last one has two sections.  One side has a few feminine products, a small tube of sunscreen, band-aids and a thermometer.  I sometimes have some baby Tylenol or some other medicines in this section too.

The other side is for the kids snacks.  Usually I keep some goldfish crackers, a couple suckers, and a fruit pouch.  Today for Kase I grabbed a fruit pouch and juice.

Here is a peek at the interior pocket, which does have a zipper, which is nice.

And everything that is inside currently...

1. Boogie Wipes (a must!)
2. Wet Ones (I go through SO many of these!)
3. Sunglasses
4. Hand sanitizer
5. Kleenex
6. Random hair tie
7. Lip gloss
8. Chapstick
9. A pacifier for Kenley

And that's it!  I'll be honest, at this point in our lives, we don't go out all that much.  It's mostly to the store, appointments and taking Kyla to and from school.  Come this fall, things will get a little crazier I'm sure.  And some day, we might even brave going out to eat as a family once in awhile! :)

Oh, and if you love this purse (or anything else from Thirty-One), email me and I'll hook you up with a nice little discount :)  (amymrsmommy@gmail.com)


  1. I love that tote.. I've been going back and forth on ordering it.. the polka dots get me! :)

  2. Your purse is a lot like mine. Mine basically has like one thing for me and the rest for Mason lol. Though, I will admit, having snacks in my purse all the time for him does come in handy sometimes when I get hungry and he's not around LOL.
    Do you sell thirty-one? I love some of there stuff but have never bought any myself. I need to find someone around me who has a party so I can see it in person!
