tote + clutch

The first few months of being a new mom, everywhere I went it felt like I was moving in. 

The baby bucket, the huge diaper bag, the purse, the stroller... bottles, paci, camera, keys, toys, change of clothes... 

"Hi! We're here!! Do you have a large storage facility where I can put all this STUFF?!" 

Now that I've got things a tiny bit more under control, I (try to) limit myself a to a smallish tote into which I put stuff for my kids: 2 "emergency" juice boxes, 2 granola bars, 2 diapers, wipes and some stickers.

 I keep a clutch with the bare minimum of things I need for ME: keys, wallet, iphone. I do not like to switch bags too frequently (that's how you lose five dollar bills and lip gloss...) so I try to choose styles that are either really neutral or really bright so they go well with everything, match nothing.

Here are some of my favorite combinations.

How do you stay organized on the go?
