Cloth Diaper Organization

Good morning!! It's a sunny 75 here in the W I.

Just kidding.... Sigh.

But I have been starting my spring cleaning/reorganizing endeavors because we might as well be productive since we are so cooped up! Today I thought I would share with you how I organize my cloth diapers.

I primarily started using cloth diapers with my daughter. I wanted to save money because I had recently left employment at my job at the clinic and quite frankly, things were tight. Aren't they always? I loved the idea of being able to use them again and again, and with the price of paper diapers it seemed like a no=brainer. But that's another post! On to the storage!

Right now for my main organization I am using this unit from Target: Munchkin Nursery Essentials Organizer

It got pretty crappy reviews, but for the price, it's not that awful. One of the dowels did break in one of the legs, but a little wood glue fixed that right up. I really like the number of compartments and the depth and that they have that fabric lip in the front to keep everything from tumbling out.

I also got these seperate containers from Target as a shower gift and they are great as well. So many uses and they match the organizer perfectly: Munchkin Canvas Decorative Bin

After I wash my diapers I stuff them immediately so that they are ready to use when I need them. Then I stick them in the bin on top.

Below, I keep my diaper liners in another small tote I got at Shopko, a local department store. These cuties were only 5 bucks a piece.

I also have another bin for wet bags.

One section is set aside completely for prefolds. These I use as extra stuffing, burp cloths, changing pads, whatever. They are a newborn size so they are definitely not being used in the traditional sense anymore on my toddler!

Not pictured is another small bin where I keep powders, creams, Snappies and wipes.

I have really liked the whole process of cloth diapering my daughter. It can be a bit messy at times, but once you get into the routine of it, it's quite simple. They trick is to stay organized and on top of the chaos! Do you have any other tips for organizing your cloth diapers?
