I’m a huge fan of minimizing decisions and making life easy. In fact, I developed a course about doing just that to help other freelancing/blogging moms. That’s why I had to come up with a solution for diapers.
You see, I currently have three in diapers. Owen, Simon, and Brynna. They’re all in different sizes. And digging through boxes for diapers was taking too much time each day.
I knew I needed a streamlined solution. A way to make it easy to:
Grab a diaper when I needed it
Let the kids grab a diaper easily
Have all three sizes stored together so everything was in one place
Have the wipes handy too.
I needed an easy to maintain solution. Because it was taking far to long to dig for diapers each day. It was also too easy for the kids to grab the wrong size inadvertently, because Simon’s and Brynna’s diapers look very similar.
We needed a solution.
Introducing My Diaper Basket
I took a large basket I found at Goodwill. Every morning, I grab a stack of size 3s, a stack of size 4s, and a stack of the larger diapers and put them in the basket. They fit nicely, sorted by size.
The basket also holds a pack of wipes. It’s everything I need for a diaper change, all in one place.
I love it!
The kids can easily see the sizes. They know where the wipes go if they see them left out. Everything has a home.
And by giving our diapers and wipes a home, we save time. They’re It’s amazing how much impact a little organization can have on your whole day.
Organization and minimizing decisions doesn’t have to be complicated. Often it’s just a matter of rearranging things a bit and being prepared for what you know will happen.
Is there anything in your life that’s taking too much time or causing unneeded stress? Take a couple minutes to look at it from a new perspective and see if there’s a way to tackle it. My diaper basket doesn’t take much time to prep each morning. But it sure helped me be prepared throughout the day.
