Starting to get my baby's nursery ready, any tips or tricks on how to organize all of the baby clothes?!

    Congratulations!! 🎈🎉 I got fabric drawer dividers (these are from IKEA) and they were the perfect size for baby onesies and pants.

    Another tip: save the most recent diaper box (I got diapers delivered from Amazon in bulk so I always had a big diaper box around). When the baby outgrows a size of their clothing, pack them up and store in the diaper box. Since the diaper box has their current size on it, you'll always know where your clothes of X size are! This was immensely helpful when we had our second baby and wanted to re-use the clothes.

    If you're having a girl, you may want to save a section of your closet (or some closet) for her dresses and outfits that are better hung. It's sometimes easier to see what you have when it's hung versus folded away especially for the more special outfits. The bigger poofier dresses take up less space that way too. I store old clothes in those XL ziplocs so I can suck out all the air and they take up no space (I don't have a lot of storage space in my apartment).

    We got a custom install yourself closet from Home Depot......they will deliver it to your house. I believe it is the Martha Stewart line.

    I have drawer dividers, but I used old shoe boxes.

    Only have the clothes you need now out. The rest can be in storage till you need them.

    I have a boy and a girl. I fold the tops over the bottoms (sorted into outfits), then stack them like file folders into drawers.

    You might want to think about having the changing station in easy access to clothes. Being able to grab clothes during diaper changes was a must with my little ones. I have the dresser right next to the changing table.

    This is what I did: I put the changing table on the dresser, one side has onesies (it used to have bottoms, but due to the larger sizes now, I had to move them) the other side has his diapers, extra wipes, trash bags, and diaper creams. The drawers below have the next sizes larger for him (each drawer has its own size to keep things organized), minus the drawer directly below the diaper drawer. That one has changing pad liners, covers, and spit-up cloths. I put everything I need in arms reach, just in case a surprise poop, tinkle, or spit-up happens.
