Like most moms my life is pretty hectic. It seems like there is always something I should be doing, and I am always on the go. One of the things I have noticed over the years of being a stay at home mom is that I am rarely actually at home!
There are no typical days for me, but there always seems to be something that I need to take care of. Â There are packages to be mailed, doctors and dentist appointments, and last-minute school projects that always need something we don’t have in the house. Â Late afternoon and evenings are the most hectic though, since my son’s schedule is extensive. Â He is in two scout troops, taking classes at community college, and he just joined a Robotics team. Until he gets his driver’s license I am taking him everywhere.
So I keep my bag packed with essentials so that I have all the essentials that I can’t live without. I recently read an organization book that suggested unpacking your bag every night and repacking it every morning – and I know that advice would never work for me! It seems way too inefficient, and I am sure that I would forget something essential.
Here are some of my must-have accessories:
- Cell phone
- Lip Balm
- Colored Pens
- Dental Floss
- Emery Board
- Always Xtra Protection Liners
Some of these are a little unusual – for example I always want to have colored pens in my bag. Â I hate writing lists with blue or black ink, so pink, green or purple pens are always in my bag. Â Other items are more common, like the phone and wallet.
I also make sure my bag is stocked with the things I might need, like the ibuprofen and Always Liners. Â The Always Liners are the perfect discreet size for keeping in your bag. Â They are thin and breathable, so that they are comfortable enough to wear every day. Â They are like wearing nothing, but are still absorbent, so if I have a little spotting or leakage I still feel fresh. Â Let’s face it there is nothing worse than being out and about and realizing you need to head home and change underwear!
