Miss H is going to be 2 soon and you know what, I’m so over diaper bags. Months ago I decided I missed my favorite purses I had pre-baby and I decided I was going to make it work. I quickly decided what was necessary for on the go and what wasn’t. Miss H doesn’t need much these days, just a quick diaper change, extra pair of leggings, a snack and maybe a coloring book and crayons which leaves me lots of space in over sized tote purse. Even though I don’t have much, I still have to have a Mary Poppins Bag – always be prepared with anything that can come my way when we’re out and about!
What I came up with was a great pouch system. I could easily take the pouches out depending on where we were going and what we were doing. I have a pouch for me, and a pouch for Miss H. 
I like to expect nothing will but anticipate anything will happen when we are out.
Here are some my favorite purse essentials I carry with me in my own bag to keep me healthy and sane!

  • Chapstick Total Hydration – Instantly smooths and moisturizes and perfect to layer under my lipstick or gloss. I love the vanilla smell, and my lips feel so soft. 
  • Advil Vial –  The original round tablets providing safe, effective pain relief for over 25 years. This little vial is a great size for my pouch. This is perfect for when your toddler is melting down and your headache just won’t go away! We’ve all been there, right?
  • Centrum VitamMints – Essential Vitamins. Minty Taste! And a good back up in case you need to freshen your breath!
  • Lipstick 
  • Wallet – Of Course!
  • Pen and Paper – You never know when you need to take notes.
  • Tissue – For all those happy and sad moments and stuffy noses. 
  • Granola Bar – You never know when you’ll get hungry or if Miss H need and extra snack
One of my favorite places find items for my bag is the travel section at Walmart, which is where I found most of my items today. I take help from the Walmart Travel aisle and find my Advil, Chapstick and more. Sometimes it just makes sense to have a smaller size container handy. I can find my Centrum VitaMints in the vitamin aisle which is the next aisle over. Easy to run in and run out! You can find more information 



So now I’ve showed you what I carry in my purse and how my pouch system works for me.
Tell me, what are your purse essentials? Anything I should add to my list?

    I love seeing what others keep in their bags. I shared my bag today as well 🙂

  2. Totally stealing "Mary Poppins bag" love it!!! I dont carry a purse with me anymore and it is so liberating but with that said I do have a huge 31 Bag tote that I use as a diaper bag and that thing is loaded up. Snacks are a must!

  3. A year or so ago I gave up my diaper bag too and opted for the purse. I definitely had to get a bigger purse but it's been working and I feel more like a person than just a diaper carrier now 🙂
