Budget Storage Ideas For A Small Nursery

So it's official...Google Reader is now a thing of the past. I switched over to Feedly because it seemed to be more mobile-friendly than Bloglovin'. Which did you choose?

If you are like me and have/had a tiny space to work with when creating a nursery here is a round-up of all the ways I maximized space in our teeny 12'x5 1/2' room while still staying on budget.

First off...the Dollar Tree. It is no surprise to anybody how much I love that place and when it came time to find some things to organize our nursery that place did not disappoint. I used two of their canvas bins with dividers to organize Evey's shoes, socks, and hats.

Cost: $1 each

I also picked up a bunch of their plastic dividers as well to organize her clothes by size and type.

 Cost: $1 each

In another drawer I used two larger white bins to organize blankets and burp cloths.

 Cost: $1 each

In her closet I used a cute round blue bin to hold clothes as she grows out of them.

Cost: $1

To maximize space, Evey's dresser doubles as her changing table and to keep her changing pad in place I used a little bit of Non-Slip Shelf Liner to keep the pad stable.

Cost: $1

Moving on to the next store, I picked up some larger bins at Walmart to store extra diapers, wipes, and other baby items in her closet and under the crib.

Cost: $7 each

Cost: $17

At HomeGoods I picked up this cute woven basket to store toys and stuffed animals.

Cost: $13

And lastly, to store books I followed the Ana White tutorial and made three of her ten dollar ledges and they hold plenty of books up off the ground as well as other decorative things.

Cost: $30

So there ya don't have to spend a ton of money or have a large nursery to be able to store all those necessary baby items! All you need is a little creativity... and a trip to the dollar store.
