What's in my Bag? Not Much! - #PoiseLinerLove

What's in my bag? I have seen these posts on quite a number of blog sites. What's in my bag? And usually there is always so much cool stuff in their bags, I'm genuinely amazed. Sometimes I think, is this a photo opp, do they really have all these cool things in their bags? What's wrong with me? I remember the days of having a baby and a toddler. My bag would be filled with so much items it seems like I had everything in there but the kitchen sink. Having a pre-schooler now, it allows me to carry around my little bags without toting around a ton of stuff. If you personally know me, you'd know that I'm a minimalist. If I don't need it, I won't carry it around so when my post title asks 'What's in my Bag?' and my response is "Not Much!" I really do mean it. There is however one thing that I always keep in any bag that I take with me and that's my Poise Liners and I'll be more than happy to tell you why.

I'm no longer a spring chicken as my mother would used to say. I'm soon to be 40 with 4 children ranging in ages 19 - 3 and things don't always function and work the way they used to be. Sure I look great with clothes on and who doesn't but things are sagging and, hair is falling out and laughing too hard causes leaks. Yes you heard me correct. I love a good joke like everyone else but I can no longer do those belly busting laughs. You know those laughs where you say "I laughed so hard I peed on myself", yes they do happen to old people like me.

Now you may say 40 isn't old. 40 is the new 20 and you may be right. Poise Liners do sure keep me feeling young because it protects and keeps me clean. Now here is my experience and why I use Poise Liners. Now you just read that I had 4 kids and all 4 kids were via c-section. I had my last when I was 36 years old and I was 36 weeks pregnant. Oh what a scary time that was but she turned out to be healthy and fit. Once I was over the birth I started wearing a liner to protect my panties and my clothes in general. When you spend as much money as I do on underwear you want to keep them for as long as you can. Now I would use the other brand but about 2 years ago they changed the way they made their liners. They made them super sticky and almost impossible to take off your underwear. As a matter of fact they even destroyed a few underwear trying to take them off. It's like they were on there with Gorilla Glue.

So one day going through the aisle about 2 years ago I noticed Poise Liners and decided why not give them a try. It's been 2 years and I haven't looked back! You don't even realize that you're wearing them and the protection is amazing! I usually pick them up at my local Walmart and right now you can download this $2 coupon to go towards your own purchase of poise liners. Trust me you will never go back to the other guys again!

  1. I love the fact that things like poise are making towels so much more discreet than they used to be. By the way I love you bag! x

  2. I don't have leakage issues, but there is a whole group of moms in my zumba class who do & there is always a collective sigh when a song with jumps comes on!

  3. I love Poise. I have also been using this brand for years.

  4. You have a lot less in bag than I do in my bag! I think I have just about everything in there. Snacks, loose change, gift cards, a whole pharmacy...

  5. I try to keep my bag pretty low key too. I don't have an occasion to use Poise at this point, but I'll give them a try when I do.

  6. I don't have any leakage issues right now but after having 6 kids I'm sure it's bound to happen sooner rather than later. These will be what I go for if/when that happens. - Jeanine

  7. I'm a big Kate Spade fan, too, and love your bag! Mine is always filled with lots of junk!

  8. You never know when you will need a Poise.

  9. I wish I had an almost empty bag like yours. Mine is packed full of stuff. Phone, keys, wallet, health & beauty items (chapsticks and sanitizers), store cards... you name it, it's probably in there.

  10. In my bag I actually carry a Leappad , Samsung tablet, Camera, keys, wallet, snacks, change of undies for my kid, juice boxes, pens, 1 or 2 poise liners ( I actually use them on spotty days) and business cards. Poise are awesome and I always find great deals... BTW, I LOVE YOUR BAG! Lol

  11. I'vd been using poise for years. This product is awesome.

  12. I've been using poise for years. This product is awesome.

  13. I just purchased these same liners today at Walmart. Being pregnant with our 6th baby has really done a number on my bladder!

  14. I have everything in my bag but the kitchen sink. I love discreet products like this one that I can fit right in my purse.
