This morning my best friend walked into Starbucks sporting a gorgeous brand new diaper bag. One that I’ve often coveted. OK, really, one that I dreamed of having, but never let myself buy because who really needs to spend over $100 on a diaper bag?
I looked down at my own $30 Target diaper bag, which doubles as laptop case when it’s not crammed full of a million different (mostly non baby related) odds and ends, and sighed. Maybe it would have nice to spend a few more dollars to got something I really loved instead of something that would just suffice.
Since I’d never been much of a purse person, it made sense that I wouldn’t be much of a diaper bag person either. I went for function and price over style. Something I thought made sense, especially considering for a bag that would get covered in grubby fingerprints, filled with crunched up Cheerios, and treated like a laundry bag.
But maybe I was wrong. Maybe moms who carry around fancy, stylish diaper bags with pride know something I don’t know.
So what’s the answer? Do you get a very high end, very fancy diaper bag and hope against hope that nothing gets spilled on it?
Or do you get something affordable that looks OK and never worry about it?
Which bag did you get?
