What's In My Sports Mama Bag? Football Edition!

It's the most wonderful time of the year... FOOTBALL SEASON! Ready or not, it's here! And I don't know about you, but I'd rather be ready, than not.

Here's a look inside of my football mama bag:

  • Planner. If you've read some of my past sports mama bag posts, you're probably noticing that I have a new one. It's about half the size of my old one, but still does the same job. No. 1 and No. 2 are on two different teams this season and No. 3 is playing soccer. There's just no way I can store their schedules (plus my own!) in my mama fogged brain!
  • Cowbell. Because this is football! Click HERE to read a full review on the one I am using this year.
  • Stadium seat. 99% of their games are played at local high schools, so no need to bring a chair. However, bleachers are not the most comfortable (not to mention that they can get super hot or be wet).
  • Eye black. One of the best AND easiest ways to show your team spirit. My favorite brand is isplack - long lasting, fourteen colors to choose from, and contains no harmful chemicals.
  • Touchdown Jar! Don't know what a touchdown jar is? Click HERE to read all about it!
  • Camera. I take hundred of photos at each and every game and then upload them to our team page. Even if you're not ready to tackle being the official team photographer, I still suggest you taking photos with a real camera over your cellphone. There is just not comparison when it comes to the quality.
  • Mini first-aid kid/icepack. Most coaches will have them, but I still like to carry my own- just in case.
  • Snacks/water. Game days can be long. Especially when they're away games. Between time traveling to and from the game, and the allotted game time, someone's bound to be hungry... myself included!
  • Money. Because sometimes those concession stand hotdogs smell WAY too good to resist!
  • Hand Sanitizer. I never leave home without it.
  • Cell phone. I use mine for directions when going to unfamiliar fields, to take videos, and even to access our team roster and post score updates on TeamSnap. How cool is that?

Anything you carry in your football mama bag that I don't? Let me know in the comment section down below!

  1. Love the bag! Where can I buy one?

    1. Thank you! It's my favorite! I ordered it off of Etsy. The name of the shop is MBmade. It was custom- I was able to choose the wording and color scheme! If you refer back to my "What's In My Basketball Mama Bag?" post, you will find the direct link :-)

  2. I carry fingernail clippers, sunblock, bug repellent, chap stick, and tuck tape. Thank you I love this!
