In all of our allergy-friendly years, we have been through several Epipen bags. The bags go with us everywhere and have to be sturdy. Recently, I came across monogrammed Cinch Sac bags from Thirty-One and my friend Susan Williams at Bags Bring Us Together. I was thrilled! So, I purchased one for each of our two Epipen-toting children and gave the bags to them as Christmas gifts!
My children and I ❤️ these cinch sacs from @susan.will at www.bagsbringustogether.com we customized into Epipen bags. SO important to know exactly where the Epipen is and what the allergens are for each child. These are super sturdy, are comfortable for each of my children to carry (and that’s been every day since Christmas!) Plus there is a sizable zipper compartment in the front. In the $20 or less category – so frugal too.

Our Epipen bags hang right at the front door among the Hodgepodge of coats and hats.
Thirty-One Cinch Sacs as Monogrammed Epipen Bags
These Thirty-One Cinch Sacs have far exceeded our expectations and meet all of the following needs:
- Sturdiness – Epipen bags go to all extracurricular, church and play activities. Plus to the grocery store – they go everywhere with us!
- Awareness – EPIPEN in all caps is very important. In all those bags on the shelf in the Sunday school classroom or just in the busy of every day – that bag needs to be easy to find!
- Personalization – The monogramming option lets us put exactly what allergies each of my children have.
- Space – Nice, big compartment in the front is great for carrying an allergy-friendly snack.
- Stylish – I am very practical but my children do enjoy cute patterns. My son doesn’t want polka dots but my daughter sure does! So there are a variety of patterns to choose from.
Yes, we are a hodgepodge and these Epipen bags help make our lives easier. Are you leading an allergy-friendly life too? You may be interested in these I have shared in the past:

Very nice idea! I have an older son, 13, who is allergic to wheat, oats, barley, eggs, milk, peanuts, tree nuts and millet! I also have a 5 year old that is allergic to tomatoes and strawberries. My oldest takes with him an insulated carrier for his epipen that has a picture key ring with his picture hanging from it for easy clear identification. I also have inside it his allergy information. I find that making sure people are aware of his allergies and exactly what that means is the safest action. Most people are wonderful and helpful. However, sometimes you find those that just “don’t get it”. Always follow your instinct, if you feel someone doesn’t get it, be on alert because they are not going to keep your child safe. (unintentionally, of course)
Thank you for all your hard work on your blog! I have been following you for years and have gleaned so much from you. I feel like you put your hand on my shoulder and have guided me through this homeschooling journey. God bless all you do.
Tammy, I agree – most people are so wonderful and helpful! I also agree with going with your instinct. Great advice! And thank you for your sweet comment – what an encouragement to me after a busy homeschool day 🙂
