Today I am dropping by with a post on one of my very favourite ‘Mum Life’ products. When I fell pregnant, one of the questions I was frequently asked was what baby bag I was going to purchase. I have always been a bag girl and I tend to spend more money on my handbags than anything else in my closet as I consider them an investment. The thought of not using any of the gorgeous bags I had been curating over the past decade didn’t really sit well with me, so I started researching ways I could potentially use my larger sized totes as a stylish baby bag. I stumbled across ToteSavvy from Life in Play whilst on Instagram one evening and I was instantly sold. Their feed was filled with photos of regular handbags and totes being used as a baby bag thanks to their genius organiser inserts.

What are the key features of ToteSavvy?
ToteSavvy organisers have some amazing features that I will list below :
- 1 insulated bottle pocket
- Changing mat
- Handles for easy removal
- Key Clasp
- 3 (mini size ToteSavvy) / 8 (original size ToteSavvy) regular pockets with elasticized tops
- 1 Flat pocket (great for mail, notebook, day planner or iPad!)
- 1 large capacity pocket with velcro top (ideal for spare and/or dirty clothes!)
What options are available?
ToteSavvy is available in two different sizes (as displayed above). The Original comes in 4 colour options (Soft Grey, Classic Black, Luxe Red and Coffee) and costs USD$72. The Mini is available in the Soft Grey or Classic Black only, and costs USD$45.
What bags do they fit inside?
The Original size fits most larger sized totes (think Louis Vuitton Neverfull and Longchamp Le Pliage) and the Mini will fit smaller over the arm style handbags.

How do I organise it?
This is obviously left up to personal preference, but I try to only use the pockets to put things in and have nothing but my wallet loose in the bag. I find this helps to keep the bag organised, and also makes it easier when you are swapping from one bag to another – all you need to do is simply remove the insert from one bag and place it into the next! Below are a few examples of how I organise my ToteSavvys.
First up is the Original size – I have room for diapers, wipes, a toy or two, a few bottles (in the insulated pouch!), a water bottle for myself, a wrap, an outfit change and a few other bits and pieces.
The Mini obviously fits less, but if you are only leaving the house for a few hours, it is more than adequate. In this one I can fit one bottle (again, in a special insulated pouch), wipes, diapers, a wrap and spare set of clothes.
If you would like to purchase your very own ToteSavvy, they currently have a special fall discount code, so hope on over to their website and take a look! I am so happy with my organisers and know you will be too!!
