Organizing My Fluffy Stash

Pin on PinterestShare on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterEmail this to someone

When I first started accumulating cloth diapers I stored them in a single drawer in Sugar’s changing table, but my stash continued growing.  Yes cloth diapers are addicting.  If you didn’t know this I am warning you now, hehe.  Anyhow – my stash soon grew to fill two drawers and that was when there were at least 10 in the diaper pail.  The drawer system was working rather well, but then I decided to remove the changing table, crib, and armoire from the nursery.  Since the girls are now sharing a room upstairs there was no reason to have all of this additional furniture taking up a room and so I transformed that room into a toy room.  However, I still needed some where to store my stash of cloth diapers and accessories.  I wanted to keep them downstairs so that I wouldn’t have to run up and down the stairs every time I needed a diaper (I have bad knees – 3 knee surgeries… so running up and down really was not an option for me) …. and so I came up with this idea.  It is hanging on the wall in the now toy room.

The diapers are a bit deceiving because all of those stacks are two stacks deep.  From the far left the first three stacks are our normal every day diapers. The fourth stack in the front are night time diaper and behind them are fitteds and covers.  In the far right cube are diapers that are too big just yet, the start of a newborn stash, swim diapers, and prefolds.

Now for the bins on top.  From left to right the first bin is full of leg warmers. The second bin holds cloth wipes, diaper liners, and pail freshener.  The third bin is full of wet bags, pail liners, and hemp/bamboo inserts.  The fourth bin is full of extra microfiber inserts.

So what about you?  How do you organize your fluffy stash?

A couple of you have asked how I hung this storage system on the wall.  The first thing I did was to use zip ties to secure all the panels to each other.  This way there is no chance of them coming apart.  I used clear zip ties and cut them short. You can barely see them!  Next Dustin found these nifty little hanger things called “Cobra WallBiters” at Home Depot.  They are actually picture hooks, but they are designed to hold up to 20 pounds in dry wall or 50 lbs in wood.  We used 5 of them to hang this on the wall.  In the far right cube above you can see one on the wall if you look closely.  These worked perfect!  Let me know if you try this with your stash or to organize anything really.  I personally love this because the diapers are up and out of the little ones reach.  Sugar likes to throw her diapers all around and now I don’t have to worry about that.

  1. so so envious! ours are on a small wire shelf right now, crowded on the shelf.. and I bought a shelf small enough for a specific area in our living room… but I judged the size wrong and don’t have a good place to keep it at all.. maybe in the fire place?… it’s in front of the door to my husband’s scary “office” room and has to get moved every time he wants to go out there… ugh!

    Nice stash and organization!!

  3. Skye says:

    Mine stay in a laundry basket till I need them!! 🙂

    However that looks so cool- how did you get it to stick on the wall?

  4. Amanda says:

    I have a couple baskets on a shelf on the changing table, but my stash has kinda out grown my system so I may steal your idea. But…. I need A LOT more diapers before I need quite as much space.

  5. wanna come over and organize my fluff now 🙂

    OMG! I am so envious right now! I just bought my very first cloth diaper and am waiting on it to be shipped to me. I am so new to the cloth diapering scene that I won’t even call myself a newbie. Since I don’t have a stash yet, I am not organizing and storing a stash quite yet. But once I get some more…. Watch out!

  7. Super organized, love it! The first 2 draws in Lukes dresser are cloth diapers. We just got rid of his changing table (where all of his fluff was stored) but I def want to do something more creative to show off his stash! We have SO many diapers, it’s unreal!

  8. That’s crazy organized! Go you!

  9. I have one of these wire things.. How did you hang it from the wall?? Ours is just on the floor. This idea is perfect! 🙂

  10. OMGosh I am soooo jealous! I feel like I need an intervention now, haha!! I throw mine in a basket and fidget through to find an insert each time. I’m bad!

    Mine are in an old fashioned diaper stacker that my mom saved from when I was a baby. Works good but I will definately keep your idea in mind since we are starting to outgrow the diaper stacker. Thats the downfall of making your own cloth diapers, I make too many for us 🙂 Love the stash!

  12. Elizabeth P. says:

    Wow looks great! Want to come organize my hubs closet? 🙂

  13. Amy says:

    Wow, that’s amazing. very large stash! 😀 my lil guy is out of the diaper stage (and we didn’t c.d. either) . but my friend still has babies in that stage and she c.d… She has hers in little baskets on top of their dresser or a bookshelf…. i definitely am going to share this with her!

    this. is. genius! we have a regular changing table with open shelves underneath and baby girl loves to drag everything out all over the place! i am seriously considering this, especially since baby girl hates laying on the changing table to have her diaper changed.

  15. Bridget says:

    I use my changing table and have bins on the shelves. The top 3 bins are full of the diapers and the bottom 3 have pail liners, wet bags, extra inserts, etc. I also have a drawer for her wipes, creams and anything else. 🙂

    This is a really wonderful idea! Thank you for sharing. I showed my husband the photos and told him I was bummed we don’t have the wall space available to make this happen, but he suggested we look into matching bins that we can stack horizontally on top of a built in shelf we have in our baby’s room– similar to your organization. Thanks for sharing again!

    Your organization of your fluff is just gorgeous! Very good idea putting the baskets on the wall like that I am going to have to look in to that. Currently I have no cloth diapers as I gave them to a neighbor to use and they threw them in the garbage when they realized they were only going to use disposables :'( It was a very sad day and now I have to build my stash back up 🙁

  18. Claire Rheinheimer says:

    Oh I love your idea! I currently have a very small stash. My changing table is in the dining room, I have a really long dining room that’s just empty on one end, so it isn’t as gross as it sounds. lol I have basket that my diapers are in on a shelf under the changing table but I’m very quickly outgrowing that basket so I’m not sure what I’m doing to do next. I do like how your diapers are easily visible, I want to be able to look at my adorable diapers!

    Looks great. I love how they are wall mounted. What a nice stack of fluff!

  20. Beth R says:

    That is such a great idea. I would have never thought of hanging them on the wall. I would love for you to update your stash shot. I am sure you have more now and I just love seeing others’ stashes
