Now that my daughter is getting older, we have several different bags that she uses. When she was a baby, it was one-stop shopping – everything in the diaper bag. Now she has her school bag, a pool/beach bag, a ballet bag, the list goes on! I have always saved the plastic cases from pillows, sheets and other household items as carriers to pack things. You can read about how I used these for baby items in my post on Practical Packing Part 2. Now that Olivia is officially potty-trained, I combined that idea with the plastic containers that toddler underwear is packaged in.
Here is a typical package of multi-pairs of toddler underwear, The packaging comes with a button snap at the top. I take out all the underwear and cardboard branding and it’s a perfect size to make small bags of essentials. I have three basic types I make up.
These are all easy to assemble. I make multiples of each and put in all the various bags we have, plus the car and my purse. Do you repurpose any packaging on items you buy a lot of? How do you handle packing different bags for a toddler? Leave me a comment and let me know. Thanks for reading. It’s Hump-day – we are almost to the weekend!
