What's In A Mommy Bag?

When I was still younger, I used to sneak in my parents' room, my mom's closet, fit her shoes, wear her clothes and accessories, and go through her BAG!  I've always been intrigued about my mom's bagella, know what's inside it, check what color of lipstick was she bringing, delight at how fancy her purse looked, hunt for goodies she might have forgotten to give me, just to satisfy my curiosity.
Now that I am a mom myself, though I have two boys, they are always excited to see me when I get home from work to rummage through my bag (search for pasalubong)!  What's with a mom's bag that sparks that child's wonderment?  So to answer that WHAT-IS-IN-A-MOMMY-BAG puzzle, here's my own expose!
I like carrying BIG bags because I have a lot to bring especially when out with my kids!


Here's a peak inside my huge bag.  I have an organizer to keep things together. I
 hate digging for something I cannot find just because everything is mixed up!
VOILA! I took out each and every content of my bag.
I'm surprised myself at how messy it could really get without my dear bag organizer!
Here is an enumeration of my mommy bag.  Brace yourselves:



  • Documents - such as school receipts, a small notebook, pens, some brochures I find useful, my Lay Bare discount card and some business cards
  • Umbrella - for the rainy days
  • Foldable fans- to keep me and the kids cool
  • Wallet - which has my ATMs, IDs,driver's license, cash, family photo
  • Medicines - I have migraine attacks sometimes
  • Wipes - multi-purpose cleaner
  • Human Nature's All Natural Spray Sanitizer - I love the Citrus Burst scent.  Good to spray before and after eating and to disinfect surfaces when I'm with kids 
  • Make-Up (Maybelline's Pure Mineral Foundation, Maybelline's face powder, Maybelline's lip balm, AVON mascara, applicator brushes, blush on, lipstick, Maybelline's Angelfit concealer, eyelash curler, lip gloss, AVON eyebrow powder, ELF black eye liner and eye shadow)
  • Elizabeth Arden Green Tea EDP
  • Giant comb
  • Hair Elastics and clips - for bad hair days
  • Compact mirror 
  • Keys - office and home keys
  • Mobile phone (which I was using taking these pictures)
  • Rosary and small prayer book
All those mess above, organized in an instant by using Beabi Bag Organizer
It helps that I have a Beabi Bag Organizer to keep all these stuff neatly placed in different compartments.  My Beabi organizer has a total of twelve (12) compartments which is perfect for mommy bag like mine.  

So next time my kids go through my bag, at least I know they wouldn't create so much mess.  As kids, they love taking out something from one compartment and transferring it to another, just like a Shape Sorter toy.

What's in your bag?

  3. Before having kids, I could go out with a teenyweeny bag with just my wallet, cellphone, a handkerchief, perfume and a handspray. Since having kids though, I've had to lug huge totes filled with all the toiletries they need and extra clothes for changing into when needed.

    1. Hi Olga thanks for visiting! Oh that's so true! That's why I ditched right away my small bags and replaced them with bigger bags for the same reason as yours. :) Ika nga, dala natin ang buong bahay natin when we're with our kiddos. :)

  4. I have 2 kids. I used my LC bag as well as a diaper bag at the same time. The only kikay stuff for me is my make up kit and my shades. The rest are for my kids. hahaha!

  6. What an organize bag you have! Before, I was eyeing for a bag organizer but then, I di not push the idea since I had small ang minimal items on my bag. Except when I am going home to Bulacan, where I use backpacks.

    1. Hi Anne Lei! Thanks! There are plenty of bag organizers out there. But if you carry small items lang naman, it's ok if you don't use one as big as mine. Thank you for the visit! :)

  8. When I was still single, my bags are all small, just the wallet and cellphone inside. But since I got married and started to have kids, I shifted to a big bag which, most of the time, seems not enough because its always overflowing with things. My nanny complains whenever I ask her to carry my bag because its too heavy she wonders what's inside and how I manage to carry it with me all the time.

    1. Hi Gaylee thanks for visiting! Hahaha! That's exactly the same reason why I don't let anyone carry my bag, not even hubby, coz I don't want to hear them complaining how heavy it is. :)

  12. I also love big bags and I also bought a bag organizer. Like you I hate to bring out all the bag's content just to look for a small thing. So I keep an organizer inside. Oh, my 2-year old son also loves to raid my bag for the pasalubong. Aside from that, he likes to get my wallet and my cellphones. haha.

  18. Whew! So many things inside the bag. I'm sure though that these are the essentials you need to keep you going :) I always bring a small tumbler with me whenever I go out. This saves me some cash too. So instead of buying drinks, I just drink water from my tumbler :)

  22. Your bag is so organized. If I can fit my things in my pocket, I won't carry a bag anymore! haha I am an anti-bag girl. I only carry cellphone and cash. Sometimes, I ditch the cellphone. hehe! That is the beauty of living in a small town. I can always go home if I forget to bring something. When I travel, that is the time that I carry a lot! Ang bigat and I am a light traveler!

  25. I don't go out a lot anymore. I prefer to stay at home. But whenever we go out on weekends, we(ehem), hubby carries a backpack with my son's things and some of mine. Hahaha! Nakatago para di mapansin na nakilagay ako. Hahaha!

    When I was working, I carry a small bag and keep everything small. As in, naglilipat ako ng cologne, hand hanitizers, powder, etc sa mas maliit na container.
