In case you didn’t already know, I’m 35 weeks pregnant and in full on nesting mode (March 20th can’t come soon enough)! Let me tell you something about nesting mode, it is a real thing. I’ve been organizing and prepping for the arrival of our little one for the last month. I still have some things I want to do, but I feel like this is a great start! I’ll share more updates on my Instagram (LivingRichwithMegan)! So if you’re interested in seeing the day to day life of a very pregnant lady (LOL) come hang out with me! PLUS once baby is here – I’ll share what I’m learning along the way!
So now onto one of the most important things when preparing for a new baby (other than healthcare of course) – ORGANIZATION! I’ve spent a lot of time working on nursery closet organization, coming up with nursery storage ideas, finding hacks and cheap ways to do things! Being prepared and ready for your little one, that will change your world, is just one thing that can make your life easier.
What Should be the Most Organized:
Nursery Organization Baskets will be your BEST FRIEND! The main thing we bought were baskets. All different types of baskets too! I’ll go through this when I tell you what we bought by section of the nursery!
Pink Bins – These came in a set of 6 on Amazon – We paid $21 for the Pink ones which comes to $3.50 per bin (best price we saw)
- These will hold extra sheets
- Extra covers
- clothes she grew out of
- Accessories for gadgets
- Older age toys
- These will hold Blankets, Toys and anything else we might have.
Pink Pant Hangers – I bought these on Amazon to attach to the baby hangers i bought on Amazon. They are perfect for keeping outfits together!
Book Racks on the Wall – These are actually spice racks from Ikea! We attached them to the wall and they hold books perfectly! You can paint them if you want!
Baskets on last Shelf – These are from Ikea and will be used for toys!
Shelf – Ikea Shelf! We loved it because it’s slim and it can attach to the wall easily for safety!
Small drawer dividers (Amazon) – These will be used to organize clothes and other items that may go in the drawer. They are easy to attach together and customize exactly how you want the drawer to hold your baby’s clothing!
Small Bins (Target) – We got a few small bins for the top drawer for things like a thermometer, lotion, nose frida etc!
Back of the Door
Shoe Organizer – This Organizer will be a life safer! It’s such great quality and holds SO much stuff. I’ll put bows, medicine, shoes, hats, just about anything in there! it lays flat and looks really nice!
I’ll be keeping my Amazon Favorites Page up to date with all of the things for baby and her room so make sure you keep an eye out for that!
