When all you need is a clutch

I’m past the diaper bag stage and, when it comes down to it, I rarely need more than my phone, ID, credit card and a little cash. When we’re running errands or on a theme park visit, I’ve learned to consolidate to so little that I can get by with just a small clutch. I prefer “tech bags” for amusement parks so that I can hang on and they don’t get in the way. Running errands, luncheons and events, when I need to look a little more put together, I’ll turn to a clutch.

Tech Bags for days with adventure

Then there are the days that I’m super casual–running to the park or an amusement park. Those days, I want a bag that can withstand beatings, that can get dirty and hold everything in a small enough wrapper that it can fit in a pocket. Even my husband will remind me to grab my tech bag. (Yes, he’s learned the lingo.)
