I’m always curious how other people stay organized, aren’t you? Right now I’m wondering whether I’m using the dresser and closet in Levi’s nursery effectively. Most of his clothing gets folded and put away in drawers. The changing pad is on top of his dresser, so most of his outfits are within arm’s reach.
The downside to that system is that the piles of teeny clothing in each drawer get messy quickly. I’m a visual person and usually end up sifting through toppled stacks before deciding what he should wear. (Although most days our nanny just keeps him in his jammies.) Besides his pants, short sleeve onesies, long sleeve onesies, bibs and socks, Levi’s dresser drawers also hold diapers, towels/washcloths, sheets, SleepSacks and clothing that doesn’t fit him yet.
If you’re wondering what’s in his closet, the answer is not much. A couple sweaters, play suits and jackets hang above a Martha Stewart 9-cube organizer that holds burp cloths and Diaper Genie refills in canvas bins. We also stash his books in that little cubby… that is, the ones that aren’t strewn all over the floor. I need a better system for those things, too.
I wonder if I’m making the best use of storage space in Levi’s nursery. Tell me, how do you organize your baby’s belongings?
