About the bag

My bag is the Madewell Transport Tote ($168), which is the biggest tote they make. It’s just a giant bag.

What’s inside the bag

ToteSavvy Deluxe ($95)
I bought this bag insert because I needed a bigger bag, but unfortunately women’s totes never have pockets. So this is a set of pockets that you can take in and out of your bag easily. This particular version has an insulated cooler pouch, which I use to store my breast milk after I extract. It also has a computer sleeve and a bunch of extra pockets for chargers, gizmos, doodads, and everything else that’s basically in my bag. And strapped to the bottom is a rolled-up change mat for babies.

Elvie Hands-Free Wearable Breast Pumps ($500)
These are wearable breast pumps that I love because I can pump in traffic, in the elevator at work, in meetings, wherever. You name it, I pump there. It’s very convenient.

Trader Joe’s Pitted Salted Manzanilla Olives ($10/4pk)
These are my “just a handful” of pitted little olives. They’re sold at Trader Joe’s in individual pouches. They’re delicious. Whenever I’m cranky, I tear one open and eat the whole pouch.

PETZL Tikka Headlamp ($30)
This is my PETZL headlamp, which is one of my favorite brands. It’s a brand I use rock climbing a lot, but I keep it in my bag in case of an earthquake or a power outage when I’m staying at a hotel. I want to be the person that rescues people out of the building with my headlamp.

Bonus items

I always carry my YETI Rambler ($30). It’s fantastic because I fill it with hot tea in the morning before I leave for work, and it stays hot all day. Also in my bag are my Alexa-enabled Echo buds ($129), which I was testing for work and I really liked them so I kept them. And my Clinique Repairwear Intensive Lip Treatment ($31), which keeps my lips nice and hydrated.
