If you’re a regular reader here at The Road to Domestication, you know that no, I am not a mom yet. However, you may remember that I worked my way through college as a nanny for triplet boys and their baby brother, too, so when I put on my “mom” cap, those rough and tumbles are who I think of.
With three boys of the same age, and a BABY, too, organization was a huge key in my job as their nanny. Within about a year of working for them, I was not only nanny, but household manager, and personal assistant to their dad and mom.
(Now, let me clarify: this was a household of 5,000+ square feet, their dad was a radiation oncologist and their mom had her own medical billing company. From the yard crew to the tutors to the music teachers, to the housekeepers, to the chef…it was the real deal.)
You get the general idea. I was thinking about ALL of that when I chose these products! So, without further explanation, here are five organizational products (in no particular order) that I truly believe every mom needs!
1. Diaper Bag Organizers
Seriously, HOW MUCH TIME IS WASTED DIGGING IN DIAPER BAGS?! It used to drive me absolutely bonkers! I KNEW I had put the fingernail clippers in that bag – where on earth were they?! Oh, if I had only had these lovely little treasures. Literally a filing cabinet for your diaper bag. Heck, I could use these for my purse!
