So, I was trying to cut my child clutter in half lately and I realized that one of my biggest obstacles to simplified living space is purchasing special-purpose items where a multi-tasker would do.
Multi-taskers that have earned their storage space include
olive oil as a cooking ingredient, diaper rash ointment, and sore breastfeeding nipple ointment
WalMart $4 pop up laundry basket as a travel bassinet which when the kid outgrows can be their laundry basket/hamper
child washcloths as nursing/breast pads, washcloths to wash the child with, and cloth wipes (also incredibly tiny spit up cloths)
a microwave which can heat a bowl of water which intern heats the bottle
Single-use clutter that I regret includes wipes warmers, bottle warmers, bottle sterilizers, special fridge milk pitcher things, and more.
What are some of your breakthrough multi-tasking purchases or worst single-use traps?
