We’ve all had times when carting things around was so cumbersome that we had to do something about it. Whether we opted for the plastic grocery bag or department store shopping bag leftover from the holidays, we’ve done it. Some women have created some innovative– and very fashionable– ways to be efficient and have everything wherever they go.
Marie bought a bookbag, just like her teenage son has! He’s still not old enough to drive and the school he attends is halfway across town. She works there, often, as a volunteer.
Leaving something at home is unthinkable with that kind of distance to travel–time lost and gas spent. So, Marie has packed her backpack like she’s going on a camping trip! She has snacks, water bottle, first aid supplies, books and magazines to catch up on her reading, a notepad, pens, cellphone…the works! She’s prepared! If her work is completed long before her boy is done, instead of driving home and back again, she has things to do right with her. It’s brilliant!
Do you have a backpack or tote for your supplies? What is it like? If you don’t, there are a couple of things you can do to get one.

Or get creative and MAKE one:
All you need is a pattern, great fabric that you love to look at, and a little time. (Oh yes, a sewing machine is helpful ,too!)
