I hate having to grab and change things in and out of the diaper bag into my purse. Worst is having to lug around both. I can pull octo-mom arms all day, but their are times when one less bag or one smaller transition would be a huge time saver!
Mommy Moments with Abby's review of Travel Hardwear Money Belt, Wallet and Luggage straps: We have been thinking more and more about the things we want to expose our children too and travelling abroad is one of them. In doing research I realize that tourists are obvious and easy targets. Us with 3 kids in tow would be easy pickings if we were abroad. I can't wait to one day put the Money belt to work as it will allow me to put our needed money items on my person in a place that would be harder to pick off of me.
In the mean time I have set this up as a way for me to transition between my purse and my diaper bag. Instead of having to take both I can slip this along the inside of the diaper bag without having to cut down on the amount of wipes or diapers I bring or leave a check book or change purse at home so I have room for all the changes of clothes, wipes, diapers, and other items needed for 3 kids. I haven't tried it yet, but if the trip were long enough and I didn't have the room for this slim insert, than I could just wear it like I would if we were traveling abroad. Seems like a great mommy tweak to a cool product to me. Meant and works for travelers, adapted and utilized by moms!
The Luggage Wraps are great! Fun colors attached to your bag helps you easily tell them apart from any other look alike bags out there. Plus, if you are traveling with luggage and a smaller rolling carry on you can slip it through the handles and attached one bag to the other for easier transport through the airport or hotel. We only have so many hands to use, attaching a few bags together can make travelling much easier! They seem to be pretty durable and easy to clasp, yet pretty sturdy to handle holding two bags together, just like anything else do try running with bags tied together, and take elevators, the straps can only do so much to help keep you moving forward on your trip!
I think these are definitely worth checking out for your next trip, or maybe mommy cheat!
