Next we have my fitteds (which I’ve recently fallen in love with and are quickly not fitting into the little drawer I’ve assigned to them) and the nighttime diapers all in the same drawer. I did this for my hubby because when we were only using pockets I was the ones stuffing them so I knew which ones were meant to be used at night. To eliminate confusion and nighttime pee leaking from an insufficiently stuffed pocket I started putting them in the same drawer. Then once I started using more fitteds I moved those into the drawer so he knows they need a cover and can be used at night.
The drawer next to the nighttime/fitted drawer is your basic daytime use diapers. Nothing too fancy or uber impressive.
Then we have the big drawer, the mac daddy of my cloth diaper stash, the throw it all in because it’s multipurpose…The daytime diapers, inserts, doublers and cover drawer! There is a method to the organization. To the far right we have doublers and inserts, the bottom right hand corner holds covers and then the rest contains the diapers.
So what do you think? Are you totally impressed? It’s okay if you aren’t. It’s not that impressive and you know what, it doesn’t have to be. Don’t compare your organization to mine or anyone else’s; if it works for you then leave it be. If you’re looking for ideas you can always look on Pinterest and be inspired (or cry, which is what happens to me since I’m not nearly as crafty as those Pinterest-ing people are).
