The Three Bags

... these are the three bags that are getting me through the summer.

We're smack dab in the middle of what is probably the busiest summer of our life and I've officially got packing down like a science now.  I've found it's easiest to keep things separated into three different bags:  one for my clothes/beauty supplies, one for the beach and one for Brady.  Nick is on his own ;)


The weekend bag from Tuckernuck is one of my favorite purchases of the year!   It's perfect for up to 3 days away, has a comfortable strap that doesn't dig into your shoulder and fits neatly in an overhead compartment of an airplane, because no one's paying to check bags anymore.  Bonus: the monogram is included in the price and you can always find Tuckernuck coupon codes online.

This woven straw beach bag is a Target find that I can't get enough of.  It's nice and roomy and fits everything you could need in it for the beach.  Plus it's adorable - everyone has been asking me where it's from all summer.  My only complaint would be that it doesn't zip shut but for the price, I can't complain.

Olivia & Joy makes some of my favorite bags and this Zip Zoom tote doubles as my gym bag and also Brady's bag - mostly because I don't care that gross water dishes and slobbery bones are thrown in there.  It's super easy to clean out and I love all of the different compartments to store things.  Best of all, I've found it at 6pm for almost half of the original price!

What's your favorite go-to bag?  And let me know if you have any genius packing tips, I'll take any that I can get!

  3. The Tuckernuck bag is super cute! I see ads for them all the time online and have never gotten one, but I always love how they look.
    Ive seen some tutorials on how to pack like a pro (all kinds of folding techniques etc), so maybe check those out?? :)

  4. I saw that bag at Target a month or so ago and was totally swooning! It's the cutest but I've already purchases so many cute bags this year (Thanks Lilly for Target) I just couldn't justify it! I totally get why people are asking you about it though!!

  11. Loving that Tuckernuck bag! I have a big Lulie Wallace weekender bag that's pretty awesome and fits everything I can manage. It doesn't have a zipper though, so I stick with my standard carry-on luggage if I'm flying.

  12. You are after my own heart - I am obsessed with my tuckernuck bag and couldn't love it more! Stella gets her own and I pack up one for the lake. Derek is of course on his own too haha even though somehow I always get roped into helping on that one too.

  15. Hahaha "Nick is on his own" My husband would be LOST if I didn't pack him anywhere/everywhere we go. I really need something like that first bag. And I've never had anything monogrammed, but I always wanted something! Looking into that bag..

  18. I've been eyeing that Target bag all season! I'm glad that I'm not the only one that has a special bag for my dog ... Finn isn't nearly as lucky, though - his is just a Downton Abbey tote from World Market. :)

  19. I love that weekender bag! It's so cute! And you're right about no one checking bags anymore. Nearly every time I've checked a bag, it's gotten lost.

  22. My Olivia and Joy bag is seriously one of my favorites! I actually just transitioned back into it. It is super lightweight which is so helpful with all the stuff we like to cram in those bags right? ;)
