ToteSavvy by Life In Play

March 13, 2018





GREAT:  Sometimes you just don’t want to go the standard route when it comes to a diaper bag.  If you are going to spend money on a bag, why not spend money on a bag your pre-mom self has been drooling over and then convert it into a diaper bag?  This way you can get that bag you’ve always wanted, use it as a diaper bag when needed, and then still get to use it after a diaper bag is no longer needed.  Enter Tote Savvy.  This fun device easily converts almost any bag into a fully functional diaper bag providing you the organization you crave when you have a new baby or multiple children running around.  The book-like design holds 7 inner pockets (including an insulated pocket), an outer flat pocket (for your tablet, doctor paperwork, etc.), 3 additional multi-size outer pockets, a key clasp and a washable changing mat.  You are able to hold so much with this device and I love how organized it makes your purse allowing it to be a perfect diaper bag.  You have a pocket or place for everything so that when baby starts screaming you know exactly which pocket to pull from to make baby happy and quiet ASAP. 


The other reason I love this is that you can constantly change your look by placing this in a different bag.  Let’s be honest, most of us already have a ton of bags and purses laying around in our closet.  With this, you can use the majority of these bags as your new diaper bag allowing you to change up your look as often as you want without having to continuously buy more bags.  Even better, when it is time to move to a new purse you don’t have to unpack your old diaper bag and repack your new diaper bag.  You just pull the Tote Savvy out of the old purse and slide it into the new purse.  You can have a brand new diaper bag ready to go in just seconds.


I have the standard size of this because with two boys I tend to carry a lot of stuff.  If you prefer to be more on the minimalist side there is a mini version allowing you to fit into smaller bags.  The mini version is more compact including 6 pockets, a washable changing mat and a key clasp.  While you can’t hold as much stuff you also don’t need as big of a bag.  It also comes at a 40% reduction of cost so it is a great buy.


GOOD:  I’m a huge fan of how easy this is to use and the organization it provides my life.  You can put in and take out of your bag quickly, meaning that if you were ever going somewhere without your kids you could pull the tote out of your cute bag and be on your way – completely kid free.  Hello pre-mom self!  The tote itself encourages organization which is a huge must in my life.  I love all the pockets and all the different ways that I can organize my bag and therefore life.  I have never run out of space when using this and with the pockets being elastic at the top you are able to really cram as much as you need in there.


The material that the tote is made out of makes it super easy to clean as it is easily wiped

down.  It also helps keep your actual purse clean as most of the mess gets caught in the tote.


The tote comes in 6 different colors and the mini comes in 4 different colors.  There is a color for everyone to be able to go with whatever bag you wish to carry. 


BAD:  The only ‘bad’ I have to say is that there are two handles on the top of the tote, so while it says that the height is 10” tall, when you take into consideration the handle sticking up it really is closer to 12”.  You can try pushing the handles down to hide them but I was never able to make this work.  The bags I usually want to use this in show the handles which got annoying to me after a while so I cut the handle off.  For me, the tote still works the exact same I just have to grab the top rather than the handles when wanting to take it out.  Depending on your bag size this might not be an issue at all but it was driving me insane so I had to make a change. 


UGLY:  I don’t have anything ugly to say about this.  It has been so nice to be able to use my pre-mom purses with my kids.  I love being able to change up my style while still having the organization I expect and need from a diaper bag.
