My quick Tip Tuesday is late again 😩. In my defense …this is due to my computer issues. The fan broke on my laptop and it won’t be back until tomorrow. So… this got delayed! Doing updates from your phone is hard! Anyway…here we go. (edit: got my husband’s work computer to complete this… mobile is too hard for me..)
My tip this Tuesday is amazing for diaper duty. Just this week…I was taking my son to a doctor’s appointment and in the 5 seconds I was dropping him off …my daughter pooped. I had to run out to the car, change her in the front seat..and then I was left with a dirty diaper in an 80 degree car! 😩. I learned from last year…the heat of summer + poop diapers = disgusting.
My previous solution to this was to try to keep Target/Food lion/plastic shopping bags in the car so I can at least bag up the mess… but I kept forgetting to take them to the car and when I remembered, they didn’t mask the smell very well anyway. So… I was scrolling through Amazon Prime Now recently (Bless my heart… Prime Now is going to be the end of me… or my banking account at least) and noticed the Munchkin Arm and Hammer Diaper Bag Dispenser. I read about it and thought I’d give it a try. It is only $3.99 so I thought that seemed worth it. So… details– here we go…
It has a hook so that it can clip on to anything– diaper bag, stroller, changing table, etc. It has a roll of plastic bags that are infused with baking soda and lavender. They smell really nice and clean! They are large enough to fit a few dirty diapers + wipes. (I know this because I change entirely too many poopy diapers at the same time ha) and they tie up easily. AND- if you forget and leave it in your car or bag for a day… (don’t judge me) your car will not smell like a dumpster. It is amazing. You can also get refills. (Munchkin Arm and Hammer Diaper Bag Refills, 72 Count)
Truthfully, I feel like a ton of “essential” mom products are ridiculous and unnecessary– and I wondered if this would be one of those products when I ordered it on a whim… but… it really is a very helpful item! It is inexpensive, convenient, and helps me feel like I have my life together. (That got a little heavy…) But you know what I mean. When you’re tired, it is hot, your car is a mess, your 1 year old pooped and is screaming while your son is running away from you in a parking lot… it is nice to have one thing in place hahaha. Rather than throw the diaper on the floor of my car and deal with it later, I can reach for one of the bags…tie it up– and if I forget it for a moment… I won’t pay for it later ha.
So… there is my
Tuesday Wednesday Tip. Grab you one of these dispensers and then come back and thank me in the comments 😉
