When kids have lots of, or every, toy out there, this budget-friendly list will bring endless fun, education, or entertainment.

Diaper bag essentials

This post has been sponsored by WalMart & Parent’s Choice though all opinions are my own.

I’m a mom on-the-go, and aren’t we all? If it wasn’t for my bag, I would probably lose my mind. I work out of the home part-time, so between leaving my house, going to my mom’s, going to work, frequent trips to my gram’s, running errands on my way home from work, trips to the park and everywhere we go in between, I like to be prepared.

And by ‘like,’ I mean ‘need,’ because when you have kiddos, their needs are priority, often urgent, and can make the difference between a total melt down and a successful day out.

I broke down the major diaper bag essentials every parent needs in their bag along with some tips for organization and not overdoing it.

When my husband and I bought our second home, we loved the charm and character of the 1920’s home with modern upgrades, as someone bought it to flip. However, with two of the bedrooms on the first floor and the other two upstairs, we knew we didn’t want to be separate from our two girls while they’re young, but that was no problem for us – we loved the idea of them sharing a room. In case you’ve wondered if you want your kiddos to room share, check out these affordable sibling sharing bedroom tips.

Note: even if all of our bedrooms were on the same floor, I would still want my girls to share. I loved sharing a room with my sister until we were in middle school, and many of my friends choose to have their kids room share, even different genders, when space is not a concern at all. So if you’re on the fence at all, absolutely go for it. It fosters close bonds, teaches sharing, and even responsibility.
