If you have read any of my posts, you’ve pretty much figured out that I am a huge dork.  When I was a kid, my sister and I card-catalogued our books and had a pretty intense system.  Playing school with us was no joke.  I used to label anything and everything that I could get my hands on.  I had one of those plastic tape punch labelers, remember those.  Ugh, don’t pinch your fingers in one of those monsters.  They draw blood!

I am very honored to report that I will soon be blogging about the 2015 City of Hope Let Them Eat Cake Fundraiser.  This year’s theme is Masterpieces of Cake and will feature almost 40 creations from all types of cake connoisseurs.  Not to mention that there will be a number of celebrity cake judges on hand!  This event raises money for City of Hope,  a leading research and treatment center for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening illnesses.

A few weekends ago, we had the pleasure of attending the Philadelphia Travel and Culinary Expo.   Now, if there’s two things my husband and I love in life, it’s food and traveling.  We are always trying new recipes and going out to new restaurants.  Plus, we go on road trips as frequently as possible.  This expo was right up our alley.

I have two young kids as most of you know by now.  Needless to say, when we go somewhere, I have to take seemingly endless amounts of stuff with us.  Everyone needs a juice and a snack.  We need a change of clothes, diapers for the baby.  You get the picture.   I have managed to cut down the amount to fit inside one of those smaller 31 bags, unless I’m not going with them.  If I’m not present, then that opens a whole different can of worms.

I recently received the Stroller Organizer by Children N’ Us right before we attended a church festival.  I was almost giddy when I packed it up and put it in the car the next day.

It was awesome.  It has two insulated pockets for drinks, a big open pocket for all the little nonsense that you need to carry, and a cell phone pocket.  There is even a handy pocket for my keys.  It pretty much eliminated my need for a diaper bag!  It has adjustable  straps in order to attach it to your stroller.  It’s easy to use and accessible to anyone.

See, my Harvey Seatbelt bag?  I love that thing and I got it for $30!  But that’s a different post.  😉

The last thing I need during an event is to be rummaging around in various bags, trying to find something.  The Stroller Organizer keeps everything in my site and within reach!  Do you want to hear the best part?  It’s under $20!

The Stroller Organizer is going to top my list of Baby Shower Gifts.  I think any new mom or mom of small children would benefit from this organizer.  It really made my day a lot less stressful.  When someone started whining, I was right on it!  It was really nice since that day was extremely hot.  My family doesn’t do well with heat so the less we carry , the better.
