In case you didn't know it, moms can give Navy Seals and MacGyver himself a run for their money in the resourcefulness department. We can turn the most ordinary of things -- like, say, a product we happen to run out of and desperately need -- into a Pinterest-worthy masterpiece. Olivia Wilde's DIY breast milk storage bags are everything and prove a mommy has to do what a mommy has to do.


Taking to the 'Gram, the 32-year-old mama of two (Olivia and fiancé Jason Sudeikis have a 2-year-old son named Otis and a 2-month old daughter named Daisy) had no problem letting us in on a homemade storage container for breast milk. 

... You know, in case you're like Olivia and run out of bags.

Olivia is unashamed to share her breastfeeding and parenting journey, and I love her for that.

And who knows, maybe she'll inspire some new trend. After all, you can use those mason jars for so many awesome things.
