I adore these water bottles. It means I can always have a bottle with me but not necessarily the weight if I don’t need it to be full. I love that I can stop at a drinking fountain when we are out and about, fill it up and then throw it back in my purse when it is gone.

Dish Drying Mats- Do you know the cheapest and easiest way to keep your seats clean under car seats? Dish drying mats. The regular sized mats work great for each seat or you can buy two XL mats to go over your whole seat. I use dish mats because they are super absorbent, wash up really well and they mold to the car seat perfectly so that the seat is positioned just the way it is supposed to be.
