Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my family adventures in life, home, travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Mom life with Tote Savvy

Mom life with Tote Savvy

Mamas, remember the distant memory of those pretty handbags you may or may not have spent a small fortune on? The ones collecting dust because you're a mother and well...diaper bags. Woof. I bought a diaper bag, but was so unhappy with it that I carried my purse around too. I was unwilling to give up that little piece of me that wanted to seem like one of those "stylish moms." However, there's not much worse than carrying around a baby and TWO bags. Totally unnecessary so I ditched the diaper bag and just threw everything into the great abyss of my handbag. My purse may have been crazy cluttered, but I looked cute and that's all that matters when you make it out of the house on a day where you actually get to shower. Feeling confident after a baby is SO important on so many levels, but so is practicality. Of which my purse wasn't, because it was so cluttered and digging for a binky in the black-hole is super frustrating when you have an upset babe.

Fast forward several months to my discovery of Tote Savvy by Life in Play. Y'ALL! Are you listening? Of course you're "reading", but really listen to me when I say this because it is a total game changer! Tote Savvy is an insert that can go into your handbag collection and make all of your organizational and trendy dreams come true! They have an insert that goes into backpack bags as well if you're not an over-the-shoulder kinda gal. I am SO EXCITED about this product partnership because I actually LOVE IT. I don't put my stamp of approval on anything that I haven't tested out, because that's not cool and I want to be totally real with y'all. For real for real! There are 11 multi-size pockets including an insulated pocket for bottles or sippy cups. There is a key clip (I use for our pacifier because of previously state binky-meltdown mode) and a changing mat too. My bag has never been so organized! My husband who has had to binky-dive can vouch for it too. We know where everything is at all times. When I want to change bags, I just use the handles to lift up my Tote Savvy and place it in a new bag. It's magical.

I wish I knew about this sooner so I could have put it on my baby registry and prevented looking like a crazy lady lugging around a baby and two bags. WHO DOES THAT?! I will be purchasing a Tote Savvy as a gift for every single baby shower I'm invited to in the future because I really do love it that much. Get if for yourself or a girlfriend and you can use code SPARKLE for 25% off your order!

I'm pretty sure that clip you see is for keys, but I clip Kingsley's pacifier on there, because binky meltdowns are a real. So real.
