Have you ever left the house to run errands only to realize you left the diaper bag at home once you arrived? Maybe you did remember the diaper bag, but forgot to replace the diapers or wipes before leaving. You start to panic, but then think to yourself that if you get it done quickly it will be fine. Boy were you wrong! The second your baby senses that a diaper bag isn’t near, they will have the blowout of the decade. I swear they have a sixth sense for these things.
After being caught in this situation myself, I decided to come up with a solution to keep it from happening ever again. After all, running through Target with a very stinky baby frantically searching for diapers isn’t a good look for anyone. So, I decided to create my own version of a diaper bag that would always stay in the car. This kids car organizer has been a lifesaver for me. So, today I am going to show you what I made and teach you how to make it too. If you’re as forgetful as I am, then you won’t want to pass this up. Let’s get started!
When I thought of creating this car organizer caddy I knew I wanted it to be an organized space where I could easily pull out something at a moments notice. I wanted to also have enough space to store everything I need without having to refill it every couple of days. After a lot of consideration, I choose to use the Arabella Baby Diaper Caddy for this project. The removable dividers were a huge selling point for me. After all, I wanted something that could easily transition from infancy, to toddlerhood, and beyond. So, depending on what I need to fill it with at that stage I can easily add or remove dividers to make it fit. I also appreciated all of the exterior pockets for additional storage.
- The first half section I filled with daytime diapers.
- The second half section I filled with nighttime diapers (for longer trips) and a wipes pack.
- In the large open section I added a small blanket, books, and a couple of toys.
- In the large side pocket I added a set of pajamas and an extra outfit (rolled).
- The front pockets I used for toiletries (diaper cremes, combs, etc).
- I still have extra pockets left over to fill as needed.
As you can see, the Arabella Baby Diaper Caddy works perfectly for extra car storage for kids. However, that’s not all that it’s good for. There are actually quite a few ways you could use it in the house. Here are some of my favorite ideas.
- Changing table storage (diapers, wipes, diaper creme, comb, brush, changing pad, etc).
- Bathtime storage (towels, shampoo, baby wash, toys, etc).
- Arts and crafts storage (paints, markers, crayons, stickers, paper, etc).
- Bathroom storage (hair products, makeup, brushes, skincare, etc).
- Cleaning storage (sponges, cleaning products, paper towels, etc).
This product can be easily adapted to fit any of your needs. These are just a handful of ways to use it throughout your home. There are plenty of other great ways that it can be adapted to fit your needs and your lifestyle.
