Large but not $$$ diaper bag recs please! Spam me!

I will be travelling this summer with my almost 2 year old and my then about 12 week old. They are both still in diapers. I'm absolutely in love with the Ju Ju be Be Prepared, but I can in no way justify $180 for a diaper bag

We have had 1 bag since my first son arrived, it is a black Columbia messenger bag. It has worked well, but I have a hard time stuffing everything for both boys in it for a long day out. I know I need more room for this trip. Can anyone recommend a good size, but reasonably priced diaper bag. I don't need a ton of bells and whistles. If you know of a WAHM who has good deals I'd love to hear as well!

Thanks!

~Rachel

I know you have boys, but I have one of these in pink that's never been used. You can have it for $25 if you are interested. It's a HUGE bag.

I was recently looking around for a new bag and I've heard that Vera Bradley diaper bags are good sized. Not sure exactly how big you need, but they have some prints on sale right now for as low as $65, I think. Maybe check those out! GL!

Sorry to say, but I love my JuJuBe Be Prepared. Maybe go the the pink room on their website and check out their FOST section to see if you can get one cheaper. I got mine on ebay and it was much more reasonable than retail.

I recommend looking for a Land's End tote or similar regular tote bag, rather than a diaper bag. For the situation you describe, you need room more than you need special "diaper bag" features like the changing pads and such, and you'll find cheaper options if you leave out the word "diaper." I used a medium Lands End tote as my diaper bag (and purse) for months and loved it!

The Vera Bradley diaper bags are quite large and reasonably priced.

I have a Vera Bradley diaper bag in good condition (Night Owl print) that I would be willing to part with if you're interested. $25 plus shipping. It's been well taken care of and fits a lot! I only have one LO so find that I don't need that big of a diaper bag most of the time, but it would be great for 2 kids. PM me if you're interested.

I also have a Fleurville DJ bag that I'm listing on FSOT because we don't use it. It has a few white marks under the flap but otherwise in great condition. Normally $75, I'm selling it for $45 ppd Priority Mail. PM me if interested. Good luck with your search!
