It’s large enough for me to place a change of garments for Micah + a number of diapers/wipes in it if I’m taking children out. It’s additionally large enough to place my laptop computer/e book/pocket book in, too. So I adore it!
And after I switched to it, I got here up with a system to maintain it clear. Principally, that every little thing in it has a spot and that I clear it out each time after I come dwelling. This has been working so effectively — and I didn’t actually even want to scrub out my purse as a result of it was nearly absolutely clear.
