10 NURSERY DRESSER ORGANIZATION HACKS
1. START WITH EMPTY DRAWERS
As you begin organizing the baby's dresser, let's start with a clean slate. Empty out all the drawers so you can sort, rearrange, and re-fold baby's clothes.
2.MAKE SURE THE HAMPERS ARE EMPTY
You should make sure that all of the baby's clothes are washed and there's nothing left in the dirty clothes hamper. Otherwise, if you organize when there's still clothes in the dirty bin, you won’t be able to allocate space in the drawer properly.
3. LINE THE NURSERY DRAWERS
Line the bottom of each drawer with contact paper or wrapping paper. It will not only help protect baby's clothes but also make the nursery drawer look so pretty. We love these drawer liners!
4. GROUP BABY CLOTHES BY CATEGORY
It's easier to find baby's clothes when they are grouped in to categories. As you group baby clothes, remember that the more specific you get, the easier it will be to locate it in the future.
5. USE DRAWER ORGANIZERS OR DIVIDERS
It can be a challenge to keep baby's tiny clothes in place. So use drawer organizers or dividers to keep clothes in place. Check out these baby clothes organizers.
6. USE THE FILING METHOD OF FOLDING
Use the filing method of folding ( aka the KonMari Method) and you'll soon realize that it is a total game changer. You'll be able to see everything in the drawer and grab clothes without making a mess. Watch the video below and learn to fold baby clothes from Marie Kondo!
7. LABEL THE DRAWERS
Add labels to the drawers to make it easier to find clothes. This is specially helpful when dad, grandma or a babysitter needs to quickly grab something from the drawer.
8. USE THE TOP DRAWER FOR DIAPERING ESSENTIALS
If you are using the top of the dresser for diaper changes, it makes sense to use the top drawer for storing and organizing the diapering essentials.
9. KEEP A SEPARATE DRAWER FOR SWADDLES, BURP CLOTHS AND BIBS
Organize swaddles, blankets and other bulky items together in a separate drawer. Or if you don't have much space, go with a basket for storing these items.
10. PERSONalize YOUR DRAWER ORGANIZING METHOD
Once you've organized the nursery dresser, see what works and refine it. Keep making changes until the layout works for you!
