Switching Handbags Made Easier

From purse, to clutch, to diaper bag, and back again, I'm constantly changing the bag I carry.

It all depends on whether I'm on an errand with the kiddos (usually), on a date with Hubs (rarely, unfortunately), or off traveling to exotic places (um, never).

If I was switching to a smaller bag, I was constantly having to take certain things out of my wallet. Fortunately, I've found a better way to easily switch bags. I've traded in my wallet for a simple card holder.





I picked this one up at Target for under seven dollars. One side holds several cards and keeps them secure with a strap. The other side has a window slot for an ID as well as a long pocket perfect for stashing cash. The middle section is a long zippered pocket which I use for change and receipts.

Now, as I'm heading out the door, I simply toss this into whatever bag I'm grabbing. It fits perfectly both in small clutches and filled-with-everything-but-the-kitchen-sink diaper bags.

As an added benefit, it is small, so it forces me to clean it out on a regular basis. After all, do I really need that Starbucks receipt from June?

This may not be the most stylish wallet option, but it does keep me from having to grab the diaper bag on a date night! It works for me.

Head on over the Rocks in My Dryer for more tips.

Great tip! I'm going to have to make my way over to Target and see if ours has that. I was just trying to figure this out a couple of weeks ago.

Thanks! :)

That sounds like a great idea. Does it have a name that I can search for? Either way I'll try to stop in Target soon and see if they have any in my neck of the woods. THANKS!
