Crossbody Bags for Mom Under $50!

I can’t be the only woman out there who changes my mind about my bags all the time, right? I’m still in the phase of needing a diaper bag for my kids, but I also am S.O. O.V.E.R. carrying a diaper bag. I have started carrying my own bag in addition to the diaper bag to have a little sense of “my space.” A cross body bag is great for this purpose – it holds my essentials (cell phone, wallet, keys), is compact enough to carry anywhere, and still gives me both of my hands free for my kids.

Here’s the thing – even though the bag is for me and my things, not for my kids, it still seems to get beat up faster than my bags did B.K. (before kids). For that reason, I’ve been finding myself drawn to inexpensive bags. Here are my current favorites under $50:
