Mom on the Go

I am like most Moms, I believe.

I own and operate a Mom taxi.

Every day after school there is some place to be.

I find myself spending a great deal of time gathering sports gear, and throwing it in the back of my SUV.

Now you may ask, “Why don’t your kids do this before they leave for school?”

Well, the answer is actually pretty simple – If I want to run any errands during the day, I don’t have room for all their gear in my truck.


Three swim bags, three gear bags, a soccer bag, and a water jug fill the back of my SUV pretty quickly.

Because I pick them up from school in order to make it to practice on time, I find myself carrying all of their gear out to the truck. All of this results in numerous trips, in and out of the house.

In addition to all of this stuff, I pack them a snack and a drink (as we are gone for several hours). And you might have guessed it…this means more trips in and out of the house.

While I really don’t mind, there has to be an easier way!

Guess what?

There is!

Another swim Mom clued me in.

I’m not sure why I didn’t think of it myself! This idea is great!

Allow me to introduce you to the snack basket:


I purchased this lovely basket from the Dollar Tree.
It was cheap and perfect for this idea.


I also purchased some individually packaged snacks from Walmart.

And you probably guessed where this was going…


I filled the basket with a variety of snacks.

My kids loved this idea!

And so do I!

I pack it once a week, and it stays in the truck.

They are allowed to pick one item from the snack basket each day.

While I still have to carry all of their gear out to the truck, it is one less thing I have to worry about on a daily basis. And at my house, that is a good thing.

Only At My House,
