Under normal circumstances with school coming to an end and summer is quickly approaching most of us have major plans. But unfortunately all our mayor plans are on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Once summer hits it’s BBQ, pool time and all those fun outdoor activities. It’s been 2 1/2 months since the COVID-19 pandemic, changed our lives but for now is a day by day basis until New York opens up. Once we can somewhat go back to normal I will share essentials to pack in a summer bag for mom on the go.
As a mom on the go, I like to always be prepared especially since we’re always getting calls from friends inviting us to gatherings. I gather all my summer essentials and created a Summer Bag for mom on the go. I keep this bag in my car. It’s easier for me to keep it in my car and save me the headache of forgetting something especially when you have kids. Sometimes if either my husband or me has to work we usually meet at the gathering right after work. Most of the times we don’t have time to go back home to get stuff and pack a bags. That’s why I keep it in my car ready to go
First thing First you will need a bag. Whether is a gym bag or tote bag you need one to pack when you are on the go. I bought the Under Armor tote. This bag is very versatile, can be used a gym bag, travel carry on even a weekender bag. It’s very roomy and you can fit many stuff inside. One day was going to a BBQ, and I happened to grab this bag and from that day on I made it into my Summer Bag, and I love it.
Cutter All Family Insect Repellentis is the one that I used all the time. I like this one because it has a better scent and it doesn’t feel oily afterwards like others and it works. Mosquitoes love me and my son. After all the virus going around through mosquitoes bite, I never leave home without it. Vick Vapor rub is also an amazing mosquito repellent.
I recently purchased portable mini first aid kit, for a trip we were traveling before the pandemic and they were just perfect. They are small and compact but they hold a quite amount of medicine. In one bag I pack thermometer, Tylenol, Motrin, Benadryl and in the other pouch I packed a first Aid Kit.
