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?
