(Just for Mom) The Mommy Survival Kit

My husband jokes that our minivan is my over-sized purse. In all honestly, that’s not too far from the truth. Between the french fries under the seats and the stash of toys that constantly take over the space, we could probably effectively live out of the van for a week. Okay, well maybe I’m exaggerating a little, but I have intentionally set up the van to be our home-base away from home. Life happens, especially with kids around, and I want to be prepared.

Enter the “Mommy Survival Kit”. Purchase a soft-sided cooler and filled it with all sorts of items necessary for survival away from home. Most of the items are not things that you will need all the time, but when you do need them, there is no replacement. You can purchase most of your kit contents from the travel-sized product section of Target or Wal-Mart or the dollar store.


Here are a few ideas for items that you could add to your kit:

Scissors, tape, first aid kit, diapers, wipes, hand sanitizer, nail clippers, umbrella, makeup, calculator, pens, pad of paper, gum/mints, brush, comb, deodorant, mirror, travel toothbrush, sewing kit, tissues, Q-tips, sunscreen, hairspray, lotion, chapstick, stain remover pens, small tools, tape measure, granola bars or other packaged snacks, ziploc bags (various sizes), trash bags, travel games or other small toys, hair clips, etc.

Whether it is bandaging a wound, wrapping a present, touching up your makeup, or applying an emergency coat of deodorant, your Mommy Survival Kit will become your trusty side-kick when you are away from home.

*Tip – They also make great gifts!
