Organizing Your Backpack for School

May 11, 2010

A girl with a backpack on.I recently found an ingenious use for a drawstring back sack - a backpack organizer! I use a large backpack as a diaper bag then put one diaper, changing pad, wipes, and bib into the smaller drawstring back sack. I put the back sack into the backpack. Using the back sack in this way means that I can easily take just what I need to take into a restaurant. No more lugging a heavy, bulky backpack that someone inevitably will trip over. And, I still have peace of mind that if anything goes so wrong and I need the entire backpack, it's waiting for me in the car.
