20 CLEVER WAYS TO STORE baby CLOTHES IN THE NURSERY
1.INVEST IN A NURSERY DRESSER
If space allows, invest in a nursery dresser to instantly add storage for the baby's clothes. Besides, a nursery dresser can double as a changing table for diaper changes.
2.CATEGORIZE BABY'S DRESSER DRAWERS
Getting a nursery dresser is one thing, but getting the dresser organized is another story. Keep the top drawers for diapering essentials, the middle ones for baby's clothes, and the bottom drawers for heavier items such as blankets and swaddles.
3.ADD EXTRA CLOSET SHELVES
One of the easiest ways to add baby clothes storage is to hang extra shelves in the nursery closet. Doing so allows you to maximize space in the closet and store twice as much stuff.
4.DOUBLE THE CLOSET RODS
Doubling the rods in the nursery closet allows you to hang more of the baby's clothes on hangers in the closet.
5.HANG BABY CLOTHES BY SIZE
When you are hanging baby clothes in the closet, make sure to organize them by size.
6.SEPaRATE WITH closet DIVIDERS
Using closet dividers to separate the baby's clothes makes it easier for you to fetch an outfit and put them away after laundry.
7.USE CLOSET DOORS FOR STORAGE
Still not enough space for storing clothes in the nursery closet? Consider putting the closet doors to work by hanging an over-the-door organizer, with enormous storage potential.
Rather than stacking baby's clothes in the dresser, consider file folding. You'll be able to store more clothes and find outfits quickly.

Use shelf dividers to organize baby's clothes in the nursery closet. This way, the baby's clothes stay organized and separated.
10.TRY SLIM HANGERS

Perhaps you are having trouble finding baby's outfits or taking a lot of time putting clothes away after washing. Labeling everything keeps it simple so you exactly where items ought to go.
13.KEEP A TOTE
Babies grow out of their clothes quickly, and adding storage for those items is essential. Keep a tote or two in the nursery to put away clothes that can be donated or stored for a sibling.
If you don't have a built-in nursery closet, you can still find ways to store baby clothes in the nursery. Maximize the vertical space in the nursery by adding a few shelves along with a rod, and voilà-you've got yourself an open wardrobe for baby clothes storage.
Rather not hang shelves on the nursery walls? Consider bringing in a clothes rack to store baby's in the nursery.
16.UNDER CRIB STORAGE

Perhaps the easiest way to add storage for baby's clothes is to dedicate the nursery dresser and closet for just baby clothes storage. This means you'll need to add organizers for other baby essentials such as diapers, swaddles, hair accessories, etc. Place a cart near the dresser to store diapering essentials, hang a wall organizer for hair accessories, and use baskets for storing swaddles.
20.INVEST IN AN ARMOIRE/ WARDROBE
