Whenever I’m sick I nest. You probably know what I mean. When you don’t feel well and you just want to hunker down under a blanket on the couch. You start collecting various items all around you so you don’t have to move. Then before you know it you’re sitting in the middle of a pile of blankets, tissues, and cold medicine. A nest. And let’s say you manage to get up enough energy to trek the long way from the couch to the bed, and you fall on the bed but… oh no…you left that packet of throat lozenges back on the disaster zone that was once your coffee table.
Ever had that experience? I have a solution for you. Make yourself a
“Cough & Carry Caddy.”
Unfortunately we had to use our caddy this week (feel better Sam) but it does come in handy for those times when you’re not feeling well!
From the coffee table to the bed you have all you need!
The perfect caddy will be one with with lots of compartments, but I think any little basket could work. Stock it with cough drops, throat lozenges, nasal decongestant, a thermometer, a pack of tissues, pepto, vapor rub, and whatever you need when you’re sick. I even snuck…sneaked?…I hid a little treat, just because life is hard enough when you’re sick.
Now all the sickie has to do when shuffling from bed to couch and back again is carry their basket with them and they have all the items they need on hand. (And no mess left in their wake.) Once they’re finally feeling better the basket just goes back in the bathroom closet, ready to be pulled out when it is needed again.
And let’s be honest. The cute little label on the front is purely for me, and because I like to make things cute. It serves no function whatsoever except it makes me smile. And I guess if something can make you smile when you’re sick, maybe it isn’t so useless.
