Diapers, Diapers Everywhere, and Not an Inch to Spare

Most of the diapers are clean and put away, so I figured now would be a good time to 1. show off my stash, and 2. show how I keep things organized...

All diapers and diaper paraphernalia are kept in N's room, in her changing table. I love this table. With my son, I used an old card table covered with a sheet. My sister-in-law found this on Craigslist (a practically perfect match to the crib) for $20. Anyway, Inside the drawer is where I keep covers, wipes, snappis, pins, lotions, and rash cream... as I'm typing that I realize I probably should have taken a picture of the inside of that drawer... oh well.


You can see the large PlanetWise hanging wet bag on the side, but I actually have a diaper pail to the other side that I mostly use (when we're home, at least)

The top shelf is where all the real diapers are. I have three rectangular baskets I got on sale from Joann's that keep all my pockets, all-in-one diapers, and fitteds.
The larger basket on the shelf is what I keep all my inserts in (Flip Stay Dry and Organics, Econobum prefolds, and Thirsties Stay-Dry Duo). Before I tried fitteds, these were considered "nighttime" diapers.
On the bottom shelf, to the far left, is where I've put all my flats for the challenge. You can see I have a dozen flour sack towels as well as a hand full of receiving blankets. They're already folded, mostly kite and diaper bag folds. I also keep my fleece liners in here.
The middle basket is a catch-all for microfiber doublers and homemade flannel cloth wipes. I also keep my extra changing pad cover in here.
I didn't bother taking a picture of the last bag because, at this point, it's basically just filled with things I need to go through and get rid of... the "junk drawer" of my changing table, I guess.

Not too shabby considering a year ago I only had 6 pocket diapers, three prefolds, two Flip organic inserts, and two covers. Eventually, I'll comb through this pile in more detail.
