As many of you know, living in a small space is challenging – add a baby into the mix, and even those who thought they had their space organized can be thrown for a loop. As the due date draws closer, the nursery will fill up quickly with tiny clothes, toys and books. Not to mention big stuff like swings, strollers and other newborn gear! Figuring out where to put everything can be a challenge but here are a few fun suggestions to keep all of baby’s things organized, read on.

First things first!
Pack away all toys, clothes and other gear that baby is not ready for yet. Only leave out the age appropriate things that are necessary in daily life on your easy to reach shelves. Babies grow up so fast that its normal to accumulate things – especially clothes – that your kiddo is not quite big enough for yet. However, that doesn’t mean those items need to be accessible right now. Make the most of your closet space by utilizing high shelves; also consider using under-bed boxes for quick, easy access. Be sure to clearly label the stuff you stow away (and sort it by age if possible) to make it easy to find the next size up when you need it.

Storage is key!
Parents understand the need for lots of shelving – especially if you live in a small space. Floor-to-ceiling shelving would be ideal for most parents as it allows for tons of things to fit in one space and is super-convenient for putting things away. Unfortunately storing everything on open shelving can look messy but you can easily hide your storage area by hanging full-length curtains from the ceiling in front of the shelving.  That way you can just slide them closed and all of the mess will disappear! Another idea to use cute storage boxes to stow all of that gear in – choose something that is easy to pull in and out and make sure to add a fun tag to label what is inside.

Do you have other ways to maximize storage in baby’s room? We would love to hear your suggestions!
