Fact of life, we all are online shoppers. Online shopping is fun, a great pass time and a way to see so many products we might otherwise have access to right? One of my favorite online stores offers some really great prints, that other stores do not, so I buy them.
As a parent of 3, I have my own share of baby bags, diaper bags, pocketed organizers and other pieces, but not because they are infants anymore, rather because they truly are helpful organizational tools that many just take for granted.
You know me as a very active traveler, and traveling creates the need to get creative, find items that can get me organized and also express myself with style.
Today’s share of 3 ultimate travel hacks for baby gear will have you running to my favorite direct-selling company who now is offering a baby-style pattern on very select products. In fact, these are the 3 pieces of baby gear you will love. Lavishly live travel out loud, and read on to grab the 3 ultimate travel hacks for baby gear and add some miles to your life!
3 Ultimate Travel Hacks For Baby Gear
Today’s post and giveaway are sponsored by Thirty-One Gifts, but images and hack story are my own, based on my life and use.
I learned early on in the travel industry, that organized is as organized does, and hacking products to make them fit my lifestyle is the compromise between getting packed organized or ending up using plastic bags (no thanks!)
Shopping helps you define your personality, but if you don’t buy things that reflect you, you are not making a statement and to most, life is about making a statement, so go big and enjoy! Can you wait to see what I have uncovered?
Travel hacks are thrifty ways of reusing what you already have, or what you might purchase and change into practical helper items. Today’s travel hacks are perfection from parenting to travel! Who’s ready?
HACKING IN REVERSE OF ME
Did you know that current Thirty-One bags, totes, and accessories commonly are used as baby bags and auxiliary storage for bottles and baby necessities? In fact, while they are not even diaper bags, their bags have been voted best diaper bag by readers of the BabyCenter blog in recent years. Parents have been hacking this tote in reverse of what I am doing, using it for children rather than travel.
READY FOR 3 ULTIMATE TRAVEL HACKS FOR BABY GEAR?
TRAVEL HACK ONE: Zip-Top Organizing Utility Tote
So everyone that has babies will be hurrying to Thirty-One Gifts to purchase this piece for their babies, I say get there so you can get yourself organized on trips, car trips, airplanes, boating trips, etc. The bag is a phenomenon.
The Zip-Top Organizing Utility Tote, which functions as a baby bag and features seven pockets and a zipper closure. Use the 7 pockets for easy access to sunscreen, umbrellas, sunglasses, phone, bottled water (empty while through TSA, remember!!) a flat pair of ballet shoes for comfort, etc.
The inside is perfect for travel documents, magazines, and your tablet, wallet, and anything you would normally carry in your handbag! The print is so cute and so fun, but it is only around through the end of September so order it fast, but, grab my other 2 travel hacks for the additional travel hacks and complete that set!
TRAVEL HACK TWO: The Super Swap-it Pocket
The Super Swap-It Pocket is generally used as an organizer that fits inside the tote and has zippered and open compartments for holding diapers and supplies, but for this hack you are going to use it your charging cords (interior) and headphones (interior) as well as the peds you used to get through the disgusting TSA floors that everyone else walked on (that’s a tip on its own).
The exterior zipper pocket is perfect for a kindle, a tablet, an array of candy bars you travel with that no one knows about, and makeup (that zipped quart bag that goes through TSA). It is separate, easy to grab and you will thank me later.
TRAVEL HACK THREE: The Cool Clip Thermal
Buying for baby, you will use the thermal-insulated washable bag to hold formula, milk, a cold teething ring or other warm or cold foods and items. Using this as my 3rd travel hack you will love this for your cosmetics bag because it can be wiped out, has incredibly fun print, and that outside easy access pocket for your makeup brushes that often end up packed inside of shoes for lack of space.
I don’t suggest bringing this in the Zip-Top tote in the airport with makeup, but I do suggest packing it. The cool clip thermal is wipeable and washable, and just think back to makeup messes in a bag, total yuck when traveling. From mascara glops to foundations spills, Thirty-One Gifts has you covered.
Now you are part of the genius travel hacks, and you are ‘in the know’ of where to find fabulous travel pieces, stop reading, and get moving online so you can have these fabulous pieces in your travel gear.
