Diapers and baby wipes are without a doubt the most frequently purchased item in our household, because we use them all day, every day. There are so many diaper changes happening, and even more than diapers, we use these baby wipes ALL the time.
Because we use these items so often, I’ve come to realize that it makes a whole lot of sense to keep them in other places besides just on our changing table. I’ve started stashing diapers and wipes all over my house (and outside my house!) and life with a baby has never been quite so convenient! Here are a few of my favorite random places to stash my favorite essentials.
1. My kitchen
This is hands down the best place for stashing wipes, in my personal opinion. I keep a box in my pantry and they get used ALL the time! Wiping sticky hands, wiping down high chairs, cleaning up spills…the list goes on and on.
2. The car
You never know when you’re going to have a diaper disaster, so I have a box of wipes and a stash of diapers that I keep in the car, and it has saved me so many times. About a month ago, my daughter threw up in the car and my wipes stash was my saving grace!
3. Grandma’s car
We spend a lot of time with family, so adding an extra stash of wipes to the other vehicle we frequent often is a smart decision indeed.
4. Grandma’s house
While I typically send my own diapers and wipes when my littles go to Grandma’s house, it’s always nice for grandparents to have a back up stockpile, so I send boxes of diapers and wipes to keep over there as well.
5. In every bag I own
I cannot tell you the number of times I have switched my things from one bag to another and failed to remember the diapers and wipes. Now I just keep an extra clutch of wipes (I love these cute Huggies wipes clutches) and a couple of diapers in every bag I own.
6. Our outdoor shed
When we’re playing in the backyard, sometimes it’s nice to just be able to do quick diaper changes without having to go in, so I keep a stash in our backyard shed. The wipes are great for cleaning up quick messes too!
