DIY mobile nappy station

I actually PAID for a copy of Real Living yesterday! For those of you who are new to this blog and are wondering if I usually steal my copies, I don't - I work for the mag! And in handing over money in a proper shop, I scored a freebie for once: a pop-up storage box. I put it to good use as a mobile nappy station. I'm not loving getting out of my warm bed in the middle of the night for feeds, so have been feeding Layla in my bed and also changing her nappy on there too. But every time I get her out of her cradle, I have to stop at the dresser for nappies, wipes, bottom cream, cloth nappy as changemat and plastic nappy bags all the while juggling a crying, starving baby while half asleep - and it's just way too much effort for my lazy self. So I managed to cram everything I need into this little storage box and now it stays by my bed and is in easy reach at all hours of the morning. And also extra handy for cleaning her up anywhere in the house. There's even room for a few of Zak's nappies so I don't have to get up AGAIN when Steve brings him in in the morning! See, told you I was lazy! So how did you use your free storage box?

I'm a subscriber, so I miss out on the freebies. :(

I used mine to organise my hair brush, straightener and hairdryer.
