My kids are no longer in diapers, so I technically don’t need a “diaper bag”, but I still find myself needing a lot of the same essentials I carried around before. I thought I’d be excited to start carrying cute purses, but quickly realized I much prefer a backpack to a purse! It doesn’t fall of your shoulder, it can carry a lot more than a small handbag, and it allows you to be hands-free.
So backpack it is. And I found the perfect one from Andar. It’s made of 100% Premium Full Grain Oil Waxed Leather, has quality brass hardware and zippers, features a sleek design, and has pockets and zipper pouches to help stay organized.
Use Zipper Pouches for Organization
I use zipper pouches for everything. I use them in my swim bag, for travel, and most recently to organize my games and puzzles. I love using the smaller sizes in my backpack so that different categories of things can be together (like snacks for the kids) and I can just pull out what I need instead of rummaging through everything.
Carry things that you typically need when you’re out and ditch the things you don’t use often
