Lug Offers Moms Stylish Solutions for Transporting Their Family's Belongings + Puddle Jumper Backpack #Giveaway #MBPMomsDay19

Thanks to Lug for providing me with product. All thoughts are my own.

We are a family on the go. If there's one thing I dislike, it's sitting around. We're pretty lucky to have a little flexibility in our jobs which allows us to take day trips with our kiddos. Since I am self-employed, and hubs works both during the day and at night, and we volunteer for lots of different programs and teams at our church, we're sort of all over the map. Our kids are usually in tow with one or both of us, and for a long time, we used a small over the shoulder pack as our 'diaper bag.' With two growing kids who love to lug around their favorite things, our small bag just wasn't cutting it anymore. We needed a bigger pack and a better way to keep everyone's items organized.

We are changing the way we cart our multitude of 'stuff' from place to place, thanks to Lug

Lug combines fashionable color and prints with functional, thoughtfully detailed bags and accessories for all your everyday adventures. Our mission is to help you stay organized so you can enjoy more of life’s bright & colorful moments. Each silhouette is carefully crafted with purpose, utility and quality workmanship that you can depend on - a lasting-impression that takes you from work to play and from day to night. We design with you front and center, making each hardware detail and every organizational pocket the perfect fit for your busy lifestyle.

When I started to think about the type of bag that would be best for our family, a backpack came to my mind first. Everywhere I look, I see moms and dads with backpacks, rather than traditional diaper bags or totes. I sort of felt like I had tried everything- except a backpack. It seemed completely practical, so I was more than willing to give a backpack a shot for keeping us organized.

The Puddle Jumper SE has made traveling and transporting daily items for the kids so much easier! It's an absolute game-changer!

The Lug Puddle Jumper Backpack SE, $125.00 at luglife.com

While I am hardly the 'type' to walk around with a backpack at the zoo, I am proud to say that I have been completely converted, and it's all thanks to Lug and their amazing products.  I can usually be found cramming crayons into my designer handbags... not a good idea, to tell the truth. I've ruined many a purse with sticky fruit snack wrappers, leaking bubbles or juice boxes, etc. That stuff belongs somewhere else!

When I looked around at all of the different styles of bags from Lug, I was really impressed by my options. I could have made a very long wish list of totes, luggage, and other bags that I really wanted to try out, but the Puddle Jumper Backpack immediately called out, 'try me!' 

So much space, and tons of pockets and compartments for everything from water bottles and Pull-ups to a handful of Hot Wheels!

We didn't waste any time putting our new Puddle Jumper Backpack to the test. We took it to church the Sunday after we received the bag... a day where we bring a lot of items with us for the kiddos. I usually bring along coloring pads, crayons, water bottles, snacks, a small and quiet toy, change of clothes for Bean, wipes, Pull-ups, and all that jazz. As I filled up the backpack before we left the house that morning, I couldn't believe how easy it was to fit everything into the backpack, and to organize it all, too! 

There are so many pockets in the Puddle Jumper, it's pretty insane! There are large interior pockets for large items, smaller pocketed areas for coloring books, small zippered pockets, side pockets for water bottles, a top handle for easy carrying, and comfy adjustable shoulder straps, too.

The Puddle Jumper Backpack was perfect for a day trip to the museum!

I comfortably carried the backpack around the museum all day on a  recent trip over spring break. It was so great to be able to comfortably tour the museum without worrying about a purse, and being able to quickly grab snacks or anything else we needed. It gave me a secure way to carry my wallet, keys, and phone, along with everything else we needed for the day.

We've taken the Puddle Jumper just about everywhere we've gone in recent weeks- to the park, to the beach (it was awesome for the car ride down), and everywhere in between. It's been so comfortable for me to carry, which has also been a huge plus. If we encounter leaks or spills, the backpack is easy to wipe clean in a jiff!
