Neat & Tidy: Nursery Organization Tips

Your baby’s nursery can quickly become cluttered with clothes, toys, diapers and tiny mismatched socks everywhere. A few simple tricks can keep things organized so you can make the most of the space you have.

Diaper Boxes


If you use disposable diapers you will already have a few empty boxes lying around, so upcycle them! Strips of duct tape transform and reinforce the boxes into the perfect storage bin. Duct tape comes in all sorts of cute patterns and colors now, so you can find a perfect match for your nursery décor.

Supplies available at most craft or home improvement stores (duct tape in photo from Michael’s.)

You don’t want to be scrambling for a diaper during a messy change. This diaper depot keeps all your supplies neatly stacked and within reach. It can hang on the side of a crib or a changing table, and has designated spots for diapers, wipes, rash creams and any other item you may need.

Under-Crib Bins


You’ll be packing up outgrown clothes constantly, so make use of often-forgotten space with under-the-bed storage. You can make your own by attaching wheels or furniture sliders to an old dresser drawer. Paint the front with chalkboard paint and you can easily label the contents.
