From Your Family to Ours: Storage Solutions
Friday, July 20th, 2012
This week we're talking getting the nursery and home ready for baby. EverydayFamily member Bhumphr6 says:
We live in an apartment and we are just starting to get baby stuff for nursery and everything and I feel like we are running out of room already and we are not even close to getting everything we need. Any ideas on space saving before the baby comes?
I would suggest skipping the changing table and mounting the changing pad to the dresser top. Also, invest in a good closet organizer for the baby's room, and think about doing that for every closet in the apartment. You'll really maximize your storage space that way.
Find things that multi-task. Like I think I saw a swing somewhere that turned into a bouncer and a rocker. Also look for travel things because they are usually smaller and fold up when not in use.
And LittleOne2321 understands:
I'm in the same boat. We just moved into a small two-bedroom place, and we're almost out of room for our stuff, let alone the baby's! I'm planning on getting a mini crib to allow for more space, and storing clothing she won't use for a while in our now empty packing totes.
