Hi,<br>
I am due with #3 any day now and I have not organized his stash yet. I used a diaper service for the first 6 months with both other babes and I am not sure where to put everything or how to put it. This is also the first time that I have a changing table. Anyone have pics of their stash organized that they would like to share? I feel completely overwhelmed about what kind of containers or baskets or AHHHHHH!<br><br>
Thanks so much!

I do not have any pics , but this is what i do .<br>
I have a hanging diaper stacker that holds my pf. Then i have a changing pad on top of the dresser and next to it , i have a plastic set of drawers with a basket on it , that holds my contours and fitteds and all other goodies. I drape my covers over it. I wish that i could get an open changing table and use that and then use the top of the dresser to organize , kinda looking for one but need to get it for a good deal! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:

Our main diapering area is on top of our dryer in the laundry room. I have a few plastic bins that are labeled (for dh <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> ). I have a dresser upstairs that has teh drawers organized similarly to my downstairs area. But 85% of my stash is downstairs.<br><br>
I took these pics for someone a few months ago:<br><a href="http://new.photos.yahoo.com/gigicva/album/576460762323659936/photo/294928803282065034/50" target="_blank">http://new.photos.yahoo.com/gigicva/...03282065034/50</a><br><a href="http://new.photos.yahoo.com/gigicva/album/576460762323659936/photo/294928803282069316/51" target="_blank">http://new.photos.yahoo.com/gigicva/...03282069316/51</a><br><a href="http://new.photos.yahoo.com/gigicva/album/576460762323659936/photo/294928803282073063/52" target="_blank">http://new.photos.yahoo.com/gigicva/...03282073063/52</a>

I used to have the diapers in baskets on shelves, but I have recently begun to just stack them on the shelf. I got tired of pulling the basket out to get what I wanted. This picture is just a quick snap of the diapers. I keep wool, covers and prefolds on a shelf and then fitteds and AIOs on another shelf.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:<br><a href="http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c395/mvlg/Mvc-454f.jpg" target="_blank">http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c3...g/Mvc-454f.jpg</a><br>
I think you just have to find what works for you. I have rearranged mine a few times. This may not be ther prettiest set up, but it is the most functional for right now.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

Thanks. I have a toddler in cloth too and his stash is all over the place. I am trying to localize everything since other people will be here helping and I want it to be accessible to them too. I like the labeling, better get out the label maker. I can have everything in one bin because I know which dipes are which but dh and my mom have no idea.<br><br>
Any one else?

<a href="http://mommacommune.com/home/files/stash.jpg" target="_blank">here's our downstairs station.</a> this one gets the most use and it's very simple. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

I have a change station in my laundry room with white wire shelves over the washer (I change on the washer.) there are bins on the shelf... plastic.. 1 for each kid and I stack the diapers in there, and a pile of wipes right on the shelf. then I have 1 bin for each kid that has their own clothes and shoes and stuff, a general supply bin with toothpaste, brushes, etc... and a big bin with prefolds and doublers and covers and assorted loose stuff.

In my <a href="http://s3.photobucket.com/albums/y89/LannaM/?action=view&current=closet0912.jpg&refPage=24&imgAnch=imgAnch25" target="_blank">bedroom closet</a> I have a bunch of ds2's diapers in a hangy-thing. It's never full because yeah, we do use 'em, so here's <a href="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y89/LannaM/bumGenius.jpg" target="_blank">part</a> of his stash and the <a href="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y89/LannaM/FBmed.jpg" target="_blank">other part</a>. We've got a few more pockets since I took those pictures, but more pictures just ain't happening today.<br><br>
This is the <a href="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y89/LannaM/WooliesDiapers/thestash23.jpg" target="_blank">main changing area</a> in the boys' room. Little white drawer thingie is home to infant socks (top drawer), toddler socks (middle drawer) and snappis and other random little diapering stuff (bottom drawer). Diapers to the left were the infant's, ones on the right are the toddlers. Looks different now, but the premise is the same. In the top wire basket is infant wool, second wire basket is unfolded wipes (I just stuff them in there, then wet down a bunch at one time for the warmer), and toddler's soakers, longies and shorts stuffed in the bottom wire basket. Various other stuff's in the green baskets. And then the shorter dresser is home to the toddler's clothes and is the changing table, the taller dresser is home to the infant's clothes and such. We plan to have them share the room for a while so it works.<br><br>
HTH!<br><br><br><br>
ETA: Geez, I didn't realize how out of date that one photo was... there's now a wipes warmer on the taller dresser, diaper potions and creams, the Coleman (battery powered) lantern for middle of the night stuff, and one more green basket. It's not super pretty/coordinated because it's all stuff we had around the house and rearranged in there, but it works.

Thank you all so much. I have a great idea now of how to set it up. Everything needs to be out in the open so I can find it and I can just give hubby and Nana a tutuorial! Wow, I have major stash envy looking at all of your stashes. I think there is more shopping in my future!<br><br>
I'll post pics when I get it together.
