Makeover a Mom Handbag
I’m a mom who needs a makeover for my handbag. My name is Stephanie. I’m the mom who carries everything AND the kitchen sink in her handbag. Don’t you? Do you remember Allison’s long running ‘what’s in your purse‘ series? I loved those posts because I’m always curious how other people, (mom-people specifically) organize their stuff. Seeing what was inside all those pretty purses was fascinating!
Once or twice I thought about submitting my own (mom) purse, but then thought better of that humiliation. Because on most days I’m lugging around a purse stuffed with notebooks and magazines, a diaper bag with paraphernalia for 3 kids, and a car seat with a 19-pound kid. No matter how hard I try there’s just a lot of stuff.
And this is my not-so-stylish diaper bag. OK, it’s not even a diaper bag – it’s what I call the purse side car. You know, the old, ugly, tired canvas bag that you fill with all the stuff that you don’t want in your purse.
In it you will find, diapers and wipes for the 10-month-old. Two complete spare outfits for the potty training 3-year-old. (Learned this one the hard way.) Snacks and crayons for the the 5-year-old. More snacks for me.
And my new favorite thing? There’s a changing pad hidden in the bottom of the purse.
So I’ve ditched the purse and canvas bag combo for one chic bag. Good choice, don’t you think?
What kind of purse do you carry? Please tell me I’m not the only one who is lugging around the side car.
