The Pikle Plan

You all know this mama is about having a plan, right? "Failing to plan is planning to fail" and all that jazz.

Well. Let me just tell you. There is a new product on the market, my friends, that takes nearly every major step I take toward preparedness and rolls it all up into one cute little embellished wrap. I haven't been this excited about a product since Vera Bradley started making tech accessories. 

The In a Pikle bag is a really ingenius way to take all of these little "just in case items" such as scissors, first aid kit, stain treater, antibacterial wipes, sewing kit, hair accessories, and SO. MUCH. MORE...

Nail kit, tweezers, tape measure, meds...it's all in the pikle!

and turn it into something beautiful and organized...something like THIS: 

Here's a little gallery of images so you can see mine from the moment I received that adorable little polka dotted box that is so cute I can't even throw it away. It took me about 15 minutes to get it all fully assembled and rearrange things according to my preferences.

 I've carried my Pikle for about 2 weeks now, and love it more every day. I purchased mine from my friend Ashley, because if anyone, this product was made for me and my crew. There are so many styles and closures from which to choose (velcro, wrap, buckle, magnetic, etc.), but I went with the Sweet in the mint stripe seen above because I like the idea of the loop and velcro closure. It has taken me a few weeks to really move in to my Pikle, and I have even gone back to add things like a kids' thermometer, meds, a tiny little pen, and the duct tape and zip ties that The Captain insisted were necessary. 

He's been right about that before. 

Though the items in the starter pack are incredibly well thought-out, and my only criticism is that the bandaids are pink flesh-toned. You know, we don't exactly "do" flesh toned bandaids in the Casa de Wilson. 

I wanted to write about the Pikle because it is so new and so stinking awesome that I want every mama in the world to have one. I am falling head over heels for this thing because it contains solutions for so many of the "are you KIDDING ME?!" moments that tend to strike upon Team Wilson during the day.

My friend Ashley was generous to provide a giveaway Pikle to pass along the coolness to one of you! The giveaway will be for this pink and gray Pikle with a buckle closure...the InaPikle folks call it a gherkin, which is in fact all kinds of adorable. 

Your Pikle will come stocked with all of these essential supplies...but you will have plenty of room to add your own necessities!
