What Did You Think You Couldn't Live Without...But Can?

When you have kids (especially the first time around) everyone and their mother's-brother's-boyfriend's-dog wants to give you advice when it comes to things you just have to have. Small spaces means making do or living without and we're curious what you thought you had to own but ended up being ok without.

In the past we've heard from readers whose parents even came and installed a dishwasher for them because they had no idea they'd manage without it. How about you? Was there something that everyone told you was a must buy or you really thought was a necessity and you've managed to work around its absence? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
