Are you a really busy mom? Are there days when you feel less like a mom and more like a chauffeur? Kids have full schedules and, most of the time, your are the way they get where they are going.
Depending on the time of year, many moms could literally be on the road and away from home all day long. If they forget something, there is no time to turn back and get it. It is essential to pack strategically so that they have everything they need with them and tote bags are a great tool.

My friend, Marie, did that for several years. Her son’s private school was a long distance from home. Rather than driving back and forth several times a day, she worked in the school as a volunteer for something meaningful to do while she waited for his school day to be completed.
So, this is what Marie did to be prepared>> she bought herself a book bag, just like the one her son had. She packed it like she was going on a trip! She had her lunch, snacks, water bottle, first aid supplies, books and magazines, a notepad, pens, cellphone, manicure kit, crocheting…the works. She was prepared! That way, when her work for the school was finished, she had things with her to occupy her time while she waited for T to come out to the car. What a brilliant plan!
Book bags are OK but I like tote bags even better. They serve the dual purpose of a purse and a tote, all in one.
Do you use a tote bag for your supplies? What is it like? Crafty ladies love to make their own. Here are some really great DIY’s that you can make and some “ready made” for those who would like to have their’s right away!
