It's In the Bag


We like to be prepared and never mind a Mary Poppins joke! Our standard organizing kit currently consists of two shoulder bags and a few larger items.

1.     The bag of tricks: The bag itself is a Baggallini, a line designed by travel agents to be the ultimate carry-ons. We love all the compartments!

-  Outside pocket #1: DYMO Label Manager 280 and charger (no worrying about batteries)

- Outside pocket #2: Eco-friendly all-purpose wipes

- Inside, in labeled gallon baggies, in a variety of sizes, colors, etc.:

  • Tapes & adhesives
