If you’re a mom, you know all-to-well the struggle of keeping your little one’s items together and organized. Lost onesies and socks? Been there before, pals. Binky long gone? Stacks of diapers strewn about? You’re not alone.

In fact, we’d argue that these are issues that virtually all parents must deal with. And that’s why portable organizers are awesome. But even portable organizers have their limits. After all, once the bags have been packed, it is hard to carry them and our babies. In most instances, the bag will outweigh the actual baby. No one wants to lug all of this around and we cannot say that we blame them one bit.

Whether its wintertime or summertime, no parent wants to struggle with one of these huge, cumbersome baby bags. But babies have a way of “doing their business” during the most inopportune moments. When these moments arise, the last thing that you want to do is start sifting through the diaper bag. After all, that’ll just give your baby more time to get frustrated and makes the diaper changing process even harder.

Thankfully, Elizabeth Rasco has the perfect solution. Believe it or not, this mother and artist actually stumbled into the hack by accident. She shared the discovery with her Facebook Page, The Painted Dragon, and it quickly went viral.

Inconspicuous large baby wipes box right?

So, what was her genius method? All she did was empty a full-size container of wipes. From there, she used a dollar store headband to secure a smaller pack of wipes to the inside of the full-size empty wipe container. This provided storage space for a change of clothes and diapers in the container, while keeping the wipes coming through the dispenser.

Open her up and NOPE! The regular sized wipes are held up there with a headband from the dollar tree. On top there, you see a disposable changing table cover.

And since her first post went viral, she updated the hack with some improvements. Now she pokes 8 holes in the container and uses embroidery floss and super glue to better secure the wipes in place.

What do you think of this genius hack? Have you tried it?
