A printable checklist for an organized purse

A mom’s purse is full of critical things! Kind of like MacGyver – I’ll bet you can change a tire while keeping the baby happy and giving instructions to a co-worker, all with items out of your purse. Am I right?


When you have an organized and well-stocked purse, you’re better prepared for all those needs, big and small, that inevitably happen when you’re out of the house.

Here are some things that belong in a well-stocked purse.

Snacks are practically required when you’re out of the house with little kids. But even now that my kids are older, I like to carry a small, non-perishable snack in my bag. Here are 30 ideas for healthy, portable snacks.

My new purse – I love the bright color and it has tons of room for all my must-haves! Don’t you love it?

  1. Purse snacks are some of the best things in the world. It’s amazing at how many times having something stashed away in my purse has saved me from getting *too* hangry. I’m not the best at eating meals as often as I should (forgot to eat lunch yesterday, honestly), and having some kind of backup is an awesome thing!

  2. I have a medium size 3 subject notebook that I use for a food diary notes and recipes. I also carry my planner for my doctor appt. my kids and my Mom’s who has Alzheimer’s. My makeup to keep away from my 16 yr old daughter, my inhalers, wallet , pens, keys and medical cards.
