I used to question why my mother always carried a huge heavy “mom bag”. Now, a mom myself, I wonder when my bags turned into “mom bags”. My default suddenly became a heavy tote bag which I carried on my right shoulder – which have been giving me awful stiff necks and shoulder pain.
I know it seems crazy to carry so much things in one bag.. but if you’re married and you have kids, carrying so many things will be a necessity as well. You will be the source of everything HAHA
What is usually inside my mom bag?
- coin purse (yes, I always seem to have so many coins)
- power bank
- two cellphones
- mini make-up kit (press powder, blush, and tinted lip balm)
- wet wipes
- small pack of basic medicines (antihistamine, imodium, biogesic, band-aids)
- my eyeglasses + case
- my sunglasses + case
- house keys
- office keys
- laptop charger
- phone charger
- work file case
You’ll usually find me using a huge tote bag filled with all of the things above.. but I’ve recently transitioned into using two bags on a daily basis. One huge tote for all the big work things, and another smaller bag for all my necessities. This way, I can easily leave all of my work things behind when I go on dates, playdates, and run errands.
Do any of you have good bag recommendations? This mommy needs a little fashion advice. HAHA my tote bags are not at all fashionable.
