Let me tell you. For us girls, we always carry our life in our purse. At least that's the case for me. When I switch purses over, it's usually all nice and neat and organized. Until it's not. More stuff gets put in it and then it's basically a junk purse if you want to call it that. Before I cleaned mine out, it was filled with wrappers, receipts, random papers, etc. Now it's back to being my purse, with a few extras not being trash. I call it my mommy purse. I do carry some extra baby stuff in my purse on days where I just don't feel the need to carry the baby backpack. But that will be a different blog. For now, here is my updated collection of what's in my purse.
Gum, Cough Drops, Headband and Gloves
I know, some random stuff here. But it's kind of winter here where I live. We've had some warm days and very cold days so you never know what the weather is going to bring. So for now I carry some cough drops and gloves for the cold days and because I am in fact battling a cold right now. I sometimes carry a headband and bobby pins, sometimes hair ties because you just sometimes need that stuff in case of a hair emergency. And of course, gum. I usually don't care for mints, but I can't live without my gum. I usually have a different kind in my purse every month. It also helps to have fresh breath you know.
I always try to carry a notepad and pen with me in my purse. It comes indeed very handy when I need to jot some important memos down, make a list, doodle or even when the little one needs to be distracted. I also carry with me a word search book. I love word searches and this is fun to do when I'm bored out and about or just sitting at home; that's if I get the time to actually search the words without someone hanging off of me. Lol!
My Planner and Binder
I always, always carry my binder and planner everywhere I go. It is especially important for me to keep track of everything. I am very OCD about it, but it's what keeps me sane. I keep track of what we are doing every day, what time, if plans change, workouts, budgets, appointments, random notes, lists, etc. Literally everything! It helps a lot. There is just so much and too much going on every day so I have to have somewhere to put my notes in. I honestly don't know what I would do if I didn't carry this lifesaver with me. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love my phone and couldn't do without that of course and I do jot down a lot of notes on my phone almost as much as I do my planner, but my planner is a great tool!
Wallet, Water Bottle and Coupons
It's always nice to have coupons for when I'm out and about, for anything really. Food, shopping, etc. This week I had coupons for Subway and I'm trying to stay away from soda and fast food. Subway was my best option and it's great! I also always carry a water bottle for me or the little one so we have something to drink on hand wherever we go. Also, I have my wallet, well because it's nice to have that too. You know, in case you need money for food or something, even if you're broke.
On days when I don't carry the baby backpack, I put these things in my purse for on the go. They include diapers, wipes, extra clothes and a toy. Whatever else I can stuff in that purse of mine because you never know what a baby will need when you're out and about.
That is all what is in my purse for now, minus a few important papers, my keys, possibly a few snacks for me and the babe, etc. I do plan on making a What's In My Diaper Bag blog soon so stay tuned for that! Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed it and I'll talk to you in my next blog! Bye!
