Do it all purse?

I have 2 small children (2 & 3) who still require me to carry diapers and wipes, plus first aid and what not... But I am also a home business mom and need to be able to carry flyers, business cards, postcards, my laptop and more... Then there is the woman in me... I need my makeup, dayplanner and money.

Is there a "purse" (read bag) that looks decent, that will carry everything I need AND keep everything organized? Where can I get it?

  • Sabrina, Have you checked into something similar to a Vera Bradley bag? I like these, not only because they come in all sorts of colors and styles, but because they are very functional and durable as well. I carry my laptop in one, but there would also be room for your other items, including baby supplies as well.

  • I use a ver bradley style bag also! I never would have thought about it, but one of the women that I work with gave it to me and I LOVE it! It looks cute and yet has room for everything I need.

  • A swiss gear book, i love mine. It has "bottle holders" on the sides. multiple dividers for whatever! i fit my lap top and 5 college text books in mine at once. the straps are padded and it keeps my hands free. carrying it on my back was much much easier than one shoulder....

  • I used (well, still use) a bagpack that converts to a briefcase; it is made by Jansport.
