Be smart with your baby's needs and your needs to pack a diaper bag
The main trick to be able to change your diaper bag into an everyday bag is to pack it smartly. For example if you used to carry around wipes and tissues, just switch out your wipes with baby wipes, instead of packing two kinds. Invest in a battery case for your phone that can snap on to your phone like a cover, instead of carrying around a charger or a power bank. See just like that, you saved up space in your bag.

Create space in your everyday bag to turn it into a diaper bag
This is a tip that I highly recommend to every woman out there! Say goodbye to your big bulky wallets, I know they were trending for a while, but let's face it, they just don't fit in clutches and small bags. More importantly when you switch to a small wallet, you'll realize that big wallet you were carrying around is filled with things that you don't use. A small wallet should be able to fit all your necessities, and will take up less space in your everyday bag, making it easier to make your everyday bag a diaper bag.
