The Perfect Tool for Organization On-the-Go

Share with your friends!

Being a work-at-home, homeschooling mom, means that I have to be organized at all times, especially organization on-the-go! With so many activities this time of year, it is imperative that I have the things I need ready when I need them.

We are smack dab in the middle of Christmas play practices, birthday party planning, and end of school year prep. Add in the fact that I am busy with work and you can see why I long for organization.

I am super excited to be sharing the perfect tool for organization on-the-go!

I have looked high and low for a bag to carry all of the goodies that I have to have on hand. When I say high and low, I mean it. I went to department store after department store. I shopped Amazon and other online boutiques. 

To be fair, I had many requirements in a bag. I needed to be able to carry my wallet, keys, and the must-haves that go in every other bag. But, I also wanted to be able to carry a water bottle, my tablet, my Bible for church services, a notebook, pens (who would have guessed that!), and a place to keep my cell phone where it can be found easily. Then I found it… the bag(s) of my dreams! 

Meet the bag of my dreams…

Are you like me? Do you need a bag that you can reach into and pull out just what you need, right when you need it? I have the solution for your organizational needs.

I am super excited to share with you about Lug Bags! This review is full of my personal opinions. I want to share with you the pros, cons, and why I am in love with these bags!

Lug Bags were founded by Ami and Jason Richter in 2005. Ami saw that she and other women had a need to be as organized as possible during travel and going here and there. In 2006 they were featured in O Magazine and in 2015 they were picked up by QVC (which is where I ended up watching video after video on these amazing bags!)

The worst part of these bags? Choosing the style and color I wanted. Seriously, I lamented over this for 3 days! I watched video after video. You could fill a book with all of the reviews that I have read. Finally I decided on 2 bags and one accessory!

Y’all, I am in love! The way these bags are constructed is second to none. With beautiful quilting, metal hardware, stunning stitching. 

Lug Charter Tote

From the site “The versatility of this bag takes you through a busy day at work into the wonders of the night. Equipped with a detachable shoulder strap that allows for convenient cross body carrying, to keep all the essentials necessary to embark on your ventures!” And does it do just that!

The capacity of this bag is amazing! Look at everything I was able to pack into this tote…

It holds:

  • Sunday School Workbook
  • Notebook
  • Pens

  • My favorite essential oils, that I carry everywhere

  • Wallet
  • Keys
  • Bug spray

The second bag I picked was the Lug Jamboree Crossbody

This is now my go-to, every day bag. I am in LOVE with this bag. I can carry everything that I mentioned above, but in a different silhouette and color. Plus, this bag is so comfortable. I love it. What more could you need for organization on-the-go!?

A few years ago I fell and really hurt my shoulder. It makes carrying things for too long a challenge. That is why I need a bag that is comfortable to wear crossbody. This bag delivers!

From the site “A stylish and convertible bag with 2 distinct looks. The Jamboree bag can be worn as a cross-body or carried as a shoulder bag and includes a number of compartments to store your everyday essentials. Hide important items using the side zip pocket and keep all other items secure and organized in the larger, more spacious interior.”

Weight: 1.25 lb
Strap Length: 10″ shoulder strap and an 18″ to 31″ crossbody strap

  • This bag weighs almost nothing! Even when loaded to the brim
  • I can carry every single thing I need 
  • The color is everything
  • The interior lining is bright, beautiful, and so pretty – it makes finding things so easy
  • Inner pockets after pockets, after pockets
  • The water bottle zipper pocket is insulated, it is great to carry snacks and a drink!


  • Again, I got nothing! I am smitten!

Finally I chose the Splits Wallet

I have never not carried a check book. I was on the fence about carrying this wallet instead of the traditional one I have always carried. But once I got it all loaded up I can’t imagine going back to a bigger wallet again! I am able to carry my drivers license, all of my credit cards, bank cards, discount cards, insurance cards, and cash (who am I kidding I never carry cash!)

From the website “This mighty little wallet has a split personality with not one, but two main compartments. One side opens flat and stores bills, frequently used cards, and has a handy ID window. The other opens like an accordion, making the rest of your cards exceptionally easy to access. And for coins, we added a zip pouch on the back.”

Dimensions: 4.5″W x 3.75″H x 1.25″D
Weight: 0.2 lb
Material: 100% Polyester
RFID Location: Main compartment of wallet


  • The size is great! I can fit it anywhere!
  • It is RFID protected
  • There are so many card slots!!!!


  • No room for a check book, but who  writes those now anyway?
