Disclosure: I received a complimentary set of Miu Color Packing Cubes in exchange for this post.
During this time of the year, my daughter Mikaela lives out of her soccer bag, with games two to three times a week, practices and then training sessions with her trainer her soccer bag can get quite messy. Disorganized would be a nice word but since we have started using Miu Color Packing Cubes to organize it, it is very well put together.
I can remember the times when I would get a frantic call before a game asking me when we are getting there because she forgot to pack her soccer socks or that she left one shin guard at home. But since putting this system in place, she is never without all the items she needs. Just take a look at how organized she is.
This set of packing cubes come three bags for clothes and one bag for shoes. Having four bags is entirely awesome.
She uses one bag for the clothes that she changes out of and to hold her uniform. I will, however, say that I wish she was neater when she puts her clothes away like folding them but at this point I am just happy that she is organized.
Another bag she uses to hold all her snacks. Because she gets out of school at 4:30 and games typically start at 6 and is expected to be out on the field by 4:45 she doesn’t have time to get something eat so she uses this bag to pack granola bars, protein bars, protein drinks, water and any other snack that we have on hand that she feels will fill her up. She does watch the amount of sugar she eats during the soccer season.
In another bag, she puts all her first aid items. She has ibuprofen, band aids, tape for her ankles and knees, as well many different ointments that she might need during the game or at practice. She also stores her knee brace in there.
The last bag stores her most prized possessions her cleats, soccer socks, shin guards and compression sleeves for her shins. If you are wondering what the faded writing on the cleats is, it is the autograph of one of her favorite players.
She says that she feels better about this year because she is much more organized than she was last year. I can honestly say that I feel better as well, and I don’t get the phone calls asking me to bring something to the games anymore because she has it all with her. I also feel better about this organization system because they all fit nicely in her soccer bag, and I love that they are color coordinated. ( That was totally an accident) So tell me do you think this organization system would work in your child’s sports bag? Let me know if you have found other ways to be more organized I still have a 12-year-old that I need to get more organized. There is always something else isn’t there? A parent’s work is never done.
