Making room for baby

My husband and I live in a 2 bedroom apartment, with very little closet space. When we first moved into the apartment I made the second bedroom into my closet (because, let’s be real…I own WAY too many clothes).

When we found out we were pregnant we knew the spare room would be perfect for the baby’s nursery…however, the closet is overflowing with my things and there is no room for all the cute, little baby clothes we have been acquiring over the past few months.

So, like most ladies, I resorted to Pinterest to help me find some ways to organize all the baby things.

Obviously, with limited drawer space, I needed somewhere to put and organize all the baby onesies. This idea I can’t claim as my own, but whoever came up with it…thank you!

For onesie storage all you need is to go buy yourself a hanging shoe bag. (I bought one with clear pockets so I could see all the onesies.) Just roll up the onesies, label the pockets, and tah-duh! You have yourself easy storage for ALL the onesies and leggings you want.

Plus, once baby gets bigger, you can turn those pockets into toy or sock/underwear holder. 🙂

Next up was what to do with all the baby clothes that needed to be hung. I was going to try to hang a shelf, but with us renting this place and not planning on being here forever it seemed a bit silly to nail something into the wall.

Luckily, I remembered that Target has some cheap, sturdy rolling racks for clothing. So, as I was wandering around Target, I found a double bar rolling rack that fits tiny clothes perfectly! With the help of my DIY Foam Closet Dividers I was able to make baby her own little clothing area, without needing to clear up my closet space.

To organize little things such as headbands, shoes and swimsuits, I just added a hanging shelf to the end of the rolling rack to help with extra organization.

At the end of the day, I am so happy with how the nursery turned out and love sharing my fun organization ideas with others who might be in a similar situation.
