Mommy's Lil Helper: Totes Are Totally Great

Mommy's Lil Helper: Totes Are Totally Great

Once your child is potty trained there is no logical reason to lug around a giant diaper bag, but it's not easy to break the habit of having a changing and snack station on hand at all times.

After my hometown of San Francisco banned the use of plastic bags at all large grocery stores last year, I invested in a simple canvas tote like this Perfect Tote ($28) to use for grocery and around the town shopping. I like carrying it because it shows my children the environmental value of saying no to paper and plastic, but I soon found the sack is also perfect to stuff a bottle, wipes, snacks, sunscreen and band aids in for easy access without being weighted down.

Here's a selection of other simple totes that will help keep you organized and green.
