We love to make a bunch of pancakes on the weekend and then freeze the leftovers. The leftover pancakes make for a quick and festive breakfast on those mornings that time is limited.

Can you recommend a stylish bag that is big enough for all the stuff moms tote around? Please share a link if you can.

I am in need of a bag, and I am considering one of the heavy-duty bags from Lands End Canvas. It looks durable, neutral, practical and has some style to it.
