Most practical bag for a busy mom?

I have the NF mono MM, which is great for an everyday tote to work, but looking for something that I can also lug around my toddler's clothes/toys/diapers etc..was eyeing a Tivoli GM on Ebay since it is large and zips up. Any other suggestions?

Speedy isn't a 'black hole?' when trying to grab something out of it?
Speedys are always black holes, it's almost like they can defy the laws of physics. For your lifestyle I recommend getting a purse organizer; not only will it make things easier to find but it will also help protect your bag's interior against spills, staining, dirt, etc.
This website has an awesome selection for Speedys if you're interested:

I have both Speedy B in DE and NF mm but since I bought Turrene mm I use it most. It has cross body strap, zipper, structure and roomy.

Oh! I was thinking of getting a Turenne ..maybe PM. Haven't tried it at the boutique, yet. I liked that it had a large flat pocket and 2 smaller flat pockets (as opposed to the little tiny one Speedy B's have). I haven't convinced myself I like the Turenne's styling with those two side pleats -- anyone else having issues accepting the look? heh. Most purse organizers add too much weight for my taste. (I'm the kind of person who thinks 2lbs is too heavy for a purse.)


Life is short. Buy the bag.

I'm a mom of 4 and my best mom bag is the Totally MM. I have lots of LV but I would recommend Speedy B. I have an Emp Noir 30. It's a terrific bag that you can wear two different ways. You can get this in Emp or a canvas. You can put your things into pouches so it isn't a black hole. I do not recommend the Tivoli GM. I owned it for a very short time and sold it because it's heavy, the zipper requires two hands to zip, and the base is SO WIDE! Very uncomfortable to put your arm down if you can imagine what I mean. You have to stick the bag behind you to make it comfortable and because the bag is so big and I am so small, it looked very strange. It was not comfortable for my on my shoulder at all, either. It's so lovely to look at, but it was not for me.

Good luck deciding!
