What’s In Your Diaper Bag? #giveaway
Posted December 14, 2016 by Prairie Wife - 40 comments
One of my favorite things to do in my “free time” is read magazines. Anyone that is a regular visitor to my home knows that you an find a pile in my bathroom…because let’s get real here…that’s the only place I have time to read them!
In US weekly they have a segment called “What’s in your bag?” where celebrities show off their super chic purses and all the trendy cute things inside.
“Oh I’m just like you see, I have snacks. It’s an organic Kale bar garnished with Unicorn tears!”
“That little heart keychain? It’s vintage Chanel and cost more than your car, isn’t it sweet?”
For the sake of time I’ll refrain from adding any more sarcastic made up quotes.
Instead let’s get down to business.
We all know that our diaper bags/purses/weekender bags/suitcases need to hold a lot of stuff.
Finding the right bag for you can be an endless quest, and when you find just the right one, it’s a feeling like no other!
Perhaps you need one that fits a thermos of warm filtered water, bottles and formula.
Maybe you’re looking for the best diaper bag for cloth diapers?
Or, you could be like me, and need a diaper bag/purse that can fit everything you need for five children aged 10 years -22 months.
I thought it would be fun to do our own version of “What’s in Your Diaper Bag?”
First take a look at my stash….
I can’t tell you anything about my purse other than it’s 8 years old, I bought in in Texas with my big sis TexasTwoSteppin’ and I absolutely love it!
First and foremost I have a wallet that’s big enough to hold all my credit cards, ID, a checkbook, and a billion business cards and receipts I think I need to save but, never look at again.
Then we have the most important part of the diaper bag, actual diapers and wipes. Depending on the age of my youngest child I may have as many as 8 diapers (newborn-5m) or simply a ziplock bag with extra clothes.
I have all the tools of bribery necessary to make it through a 30min wait in a doctors office. Including, toys (cars, troll dolls, horses, dinosaurs, necklaces, and a squeaky pig), gum, goldfish crackers, and my Original Squeeze.
The big zipper pouch is my first aid kit and has band aids, medicine for every age and need, pads and tampons, nursing pads, fingernail clippers, and tweezers.
Now we get to the stuff that’s actually for me!
Every shade of lip gloss known to man (as I’ve said before I have a problem), my Evian water mister and lotion (a must in Wyoming’s dry climate), a hairbrush, pens, runner’s mace, old shopping lists and notices from the post office, and last but not least… my Grandma Catherine’s Rosary.
And of course…somewhere buried in all that mess are my car keys…10 points to the reader that spots them 😉
I thought it’d be fun to have a little contest and see what YOU have in your diaper bag!
All you have to do is let us know in the comments what you think is the most useful OR unusual thing you have in your bag (or purse) AND why it’s in there!

I can’t wait to read what our readers have I their diaper bags (or purses)!
