Mommy Emergency kit tutorial with Extra® Gum

Moms, does it ever feel like we need to solve everyone's problems and all at the same time?! We have to be a master of everything and prepared for anything. It doesn't matter how busy you are, you need to tackle it all. So I have tried to help myself along by keeping a small 'Mommy Emergency Kit' in my purse at all times. It isn't large (we don't need to tote around the kitchen sink-we carry enough!), but it has those essentials to help fix those day to days problems we all encounter. To make your own Mommy Emergency Kit gather the following supplies:

-small coin purse or make up bag to hold your Emergency Kit
-Travel sewing kit with safety pins
-any medicine you might need
-hand sanitizer
-lip balm
-bobby pins
-hair band
-new Extra® Gum Spearmint or Extra® Gum Polar Ice® 35-stick pack

Most of the items you will only need one or two of. The amounts are not meant to be large because you are creating a kit with items for a one time use and then to be replenished. I keep one dose of pain reliever and allergy meds for my family in a labeled bag. Hand sanitizer is always important before snacks, after who-knows-what, and I've even used a little on my neck if I don't have body spray! Lip balm and a little cover up are all I need in a pinch and lip balm makes a great bribe or reward for kids (#dontjudge #ithappens). A bobby pin or hair band can fix almost any hair issue, especially if you have a daughter! And a tissue can work for runny noses, tears, dabbing cuts or scrapes, and with a little hand sanitizer can work as a wipe in a pinch. Here's another tip: make sure the bandaid you include is a colored or character one. It helps calm the tears faster and you can even use it as a sticker if needed! 

But a few of the items it's worth having an entire pack of! The new Extra® 35-stick pack features more gum for you and for everyone else because as a mom we 'Give Extra, Get Extra!' You can find Extra® Gum Spearmint and Extra® Gum Polar Ice® packs at your local Walmart. I found them right by the checkout so it was really convenient to add them to my cart! It even features durable, recycled packaging.

Extra® Gum is a huge essential for any Mommy Emergency Kit. It helps freshen breath after a meal, works as a treat, or a way to tide over your children before meals! If you work outside the home, the new Extra® 35-stick packs are convenient to keep/split between your desk and your purse, too or your purse and the car.

To create your kit, all you need to do is add all your items to the pouch and make sure you never forget it at home!

  3. Having this kit is a great idea.

  4. I hate being stuck away from home missing an essential and scrambling to get to a store for myself or the rest of my family. These kits are always such lifesavers! #client

  5. Cute! I swear, I think I am the only mom that never has a bandaid! And, if I did I wouldn't be able to find it in my cluttered purse! I love how you have this all in a tiny pouch... one of my Ipsy bags would be great for this! I have some packs of that Extra gum and I have yet to run out! lol!


  6. This is perfect! I think I have almost all of these items in a pouch in my purse too!

  7. That kit is such a great idea. I don't have kids yet, but I could use some of those items myself at times.

  8. Looks like a great kit! I usually try to keep the necessities on hand too.
