A few months ago when I returned to work I was on the hunt for a bag that would easily transition me between work and evenings and weekends at home. No matter whether it is going to work for the day or running weekend errands with the kids I no longer can use a cute little purse.
I happened to meet up with a friend one day and saw her bag and knew it was what I had to have. While it is no longer available it is the Lululemon Yin Time bag in black. This bag is a organization freak’s dream, it has 14 different compartments for everything you might need to carry.
On a work day i am typically bringing a lunch, possibly workout/yoga clothes, my water bottle on top of the usual purse “things” so I need a large enough bag that also has a ton of organization.
Now to see what those “usual purse things” are:
Lip gloss, lip chap, lotion and hand sanitizer because lip gloss instantly makes you feel better (right?!) and the others are just necessities.
Wipes – with kids these are a must! Kid activities, you never know when you might have to wait that 5 extra minutes that in a kid’s life is hours crayons, activity books, a small toy or whatever always comes in handy.
Snacks. I always have a snack or two…or three in my purse and one is always a protein bar. With 30g of protein Premier Protein bars are the perfect snack for me to have handy in my purse at all times. As a busy Mom I do sometimes forget to eat (something I never thought would happen!) so knowing that I can keep my belly happy until I do have a meal is key. Nobody wants a hungry Momma 😉
These bars are also gluten free and come in three flavours:
My favourite is the dark chocolate mint since that combo always wins in my world! These bars are available at Costco stores throughout Canada.
Along with snacks is water, I never go anywhere without my Swell water bottle!
What is in your bag?
Disclosure: I received the Premier protein bars free of charge in exchange for this blog posts and social media shares. However, all thoughts and options are my own.
