"As a working mama on the go, my tote is a constant rotation of random essentials. And although I've grown accustomed to being surprised by the contents of my bag on the regular (yesterday's "present" from my toddler was a half-eaten carrot and some glue), I certainly have my standbys that continually make their way into my daily grind!:
Almonds - The perfect snack for fending off low blood sugar meltdowns from baby and mama. Notebook / Pen - I always prefer to jot down ideas on paper rather than seeking my phone and getting sucked into the ever-distracting realm of social media. Sunglasses - It is summer, after all! Cash - There's a cash-only hot dog stand that I simply refuse to turn down, so naturally, this is a must pack. Lip Balm - I feel so much more put together with a swipe of color and moisture on my lips (even if I haven't showered in a few days - eek!). Stickers - Surely I'm not the only parent that relies on stickers to pass the time while waiting at the library, post office or DMV? Scarf - I am always, always, always cold. A scarf's a surefire way to keep me cozy in the air-conditioning and makes for an instant picnic blanket on a warm, sunny day! Water - In an attempt to drink more water, I've been carrying a bottle everywhere.I.go. I'll let you know if it's helping. ;) Sunscreen - My toddler has super fair skin, so reapplication on the go is a must. This stick makes it a breeze!"
Megan spends her summers on the shores of lake Michigan, so her tote is full of beach essentials! From Megan: "I love nothing more than owning a product that has a story deeper than the shelf on which it sits." Check out her post to see what she stores in her Mamuye.
