I’ve never been one to carry a big ol’ purse. It’s beyond me why someone would want to lug around a huge bag that could fit an entire change of clothes. While I respect your need to carry your running shoes, makeup, camera, hair brush, your lunch, breath mints, and a million pennies and wads of receipts…HOW do you find anything in there?!?!
So when it comes to my purse, I’m a minimalist for sure. I only need a few essential things. This is it:
Truly, that’s ALL I want to carry with me.
And now that I carry a diaper bag containing TWO changes of clothes (for the babes), tons of diapers, wipes, butt paste, snot suckers, sunscreen, and who knows what else… do you really think I’m going to drag around a personal ‘purse’ for myself?
NAY! Certainly not!
And until recently, I’d been keeping my small pile of ‘essentials’ in the front pocket of the diaper bag. And it’s been a total pain. It means I either need to take the diaper bag with me everywhere (babies or not), or dig to find my debit card, and run the risk that it won’t end up back there when I’m done with it.
So I did a little searching on Etsy for a smallish zipper-pouchy thing that would perfectly fit my items in a non-bulky fashion. Something I could just grab out of the diaper bag when I’m running into the store quick, or going out for coffee with a friend.
It’s a dream come true.
I just pop it in the diaper bag when I’m heading out with the girls, or just grab it on my way out the door when I’m going out childless (which never happens)… (ok sometimes)… (but not often).
I bought it from this Etsy Shop, and I’m so happy with it. It’s well constructed, cute, AND it has a little pocket inside that I can put my cash and cards.
It’s the small things in life right? That something so bitty and insignificant could bring me such joy.
That’s all. You can go about your business now. 🙂
