I think babies would fit in to that category.
I took this picture only after our first baby shower.
Thankfully we've come a long way.
It think our biggest best friend for organizing our nursery were baskets. There are more baskets in this one room than in any of the other rooms in our home combined.
You already saw how we used some baskets in our bookshelf.
Currently we are storing blankets in them, but before we know it they will be used to store Legos and cars and and trucks and who knows what else.
Another basket-heavy area was our changing table.
Not only did we buy some large baskets that fit perfectly under the changing table,
we added some to the sides - for smaller items you'd like to have at the ready.
Really, I just have things placed there -just for now. I know I will become much more specific about what I'd like stored in there when I'm actually using the space.
One of the drawers even had separators. Currently, I've got hats, socks, and bibs stored in there.
Last post I also showed you the little caddy we have our burp cloths stored in.
We also have found some extra storage under the crib.
nylon zipper bin that we got to go in our IKEA closet system. We weren't using this one and it fit perfectly! I have extra sheets and linens stored under there.
Lastly, the closet.
The closet was built with these side shelves that are perfectly sized for these canvas bin cubes.
I bought four in an army green color and glued paper numbers to the faces of them to give them a little bit more pizzazz (because that's a word we don't use enough of these days.)
I also bought these great plastic bins that have dry erase labels on the front. Right now we have a few diapers stored up there as well as clothes he likely won't wear for a year or so. In the future, I could see us storing toys and other things we want to keep close but out of his reach and hidden. The labels are great since I'm forgetful and it would be helpful to have a visual reminder without pulling things down as to what is in each bin.
I really wanted some sort of clothing organizer to help me differentiate sizes of the clothes hanging in the closet. So all I did was trace out some circles on some thin cardboard (I used an old cereal box), glued some fun scrapbook paper to it and then made my labels with a Sharpe. It's super helpful and....free!
Then down below, we utilized that space with a cube organizer.fabric cubes are also from Target.
And look at this little guy! Isn't he just the happiest?! He's happy because everything has a place and everything is in its place.....
