Unitasker Wednesday: Bulb Nest

All Unitasker Wednesday posts are jokes — we don’t want you to buy these items, we want you to laugh at their ridiculousness. Enjoy!

In every home we’ve rented all of the light fixtures contain the least expensive and least energy efficient light bulbs. In order to reduce our electric bill, we replace the cheap bulbs energy with energy efficient LED ones. Consequently, we store quite a few light bulbs because we switch them all back before we move out, taking the LED ones with us.

We have gone through this process 12 times in the past 25 years and never once did we consider buying or using a unitasker like bulbNEST — a cardboard box that holds up to 6 standard light bulbs and 2 spotlight light bulbs.

I suppose some people may find it useful but I think paying $16.99 USD for a cardboard box, even if it is custom designed, is a little expensive.

We store light bulbs in a small Rubbermaid tote, either in the original packaging so it is easy to see what the bulb is, or we wrap the bulbs in fruit net wrap that the local grocery store was going to throw in the garbage anyway.

Sometimes custom organizing solutions are necessary. However, with a little thought and items you already own, you can save money by creating your own storage solution.

Thank you to reader Ano Nymous for bringing this unitasker to our attention.

    I found out that one of my sisters replaced every bulb in her new house when she brought me all the old bulbs. No fuss, no special packaging, all in a bag together. Good enough for me!
    😉 I love your unitasker suggestions!
