Apartment Living Series: An Organized Baby Cabinet

I've been working overtime around here getting our apartment organized, and, as promised, I'm taking you all along for the ride! I started with the baby cabinet because feeding the baby is something we do quite a bit around here, and our supplies were all over the place! Combine that with a hungry, screaming baby, and you have complete chaos!

This was a pretty quick and easy project. I started by just brainstorming.  I wrote out everything that needed to be organized, what supplies I needed, and made a quick to-do list. All I needed for this project was few bins and containers to hold bottles, sippy cups, and snacks (which I snagged at TJMaxx) and my silhouette die cutting machine for the labels.

Including making labels, this project literally only took about an hour, and it has made feeding time with Izzy SO much smoother because everything has a place. We've started using sippy cups, bowls, and spoons quite a bit more than bottles so I put the bottles on the top shelf. Snacks are a must for keeping Izzy busy (hey that rhymes!) in the mornings when everyone is getting ready or in the evenings when I'm busy cooking dinner and need her to sit still in the high chair so I made sure to keep those within reach.

She hasn't quite graduated to plates and big girl cups yet, but I got them anyway because they were super cheap at Ikea, and I only get to go there once or twice or year. She'll be using them before I know it!

So that's that! I love to cross an item off of my to-do list, but I still have a long way to go!

  2. I so need to do this. Our baby cabinet has stuff literally thrown in there because there is no place for anything. You've inspired me to go straighten up now!
