Not only are cloth diapers cheaper in the long run, but you also don’t have to deal with a ton of huge diaper boxes. That means storing diapers is a lot easier and looks less cluttered. So here is a guide on how to store cloth diapers!
How to Store Cloth Diapers
I keep it simple and just use furniture I already have.
I use the top two drawers of my son’s dresser for all cloth diapering/changing needs.
One drawer is specifically for cloth diapers and I fit my entire stash (36 diapers) in there.
The other drawer has his pajamas, inserts, cloth wipes that are not in the warmer yet, cloth diaper safe diaper rash cream, liners, changing pad sheets, and diaper pail bags.
His changing pad is right above the drawers, so it works really well for us.
I separate my diapers by pockets and all in ones so it’s easier for my husband to know what to do with them. That’s why it’s important to label, in case someone other than you needs to get in there.
I have labels for what type of diapers are in that row (AIO, Pockets, etc). I also label the other drawer with what is in that row (pajamas, inserts, changing pads, etc).
I recommend using a label maker. I was originally cheap and tried to use tape and a marker… well, that didn’t work. It all just kept peeling off.
Once I switched to a label maker, the labels lasted years. Plus I ended up labeling my whole house lol. It was worth the few dollars to just get a label maker.
Drawer Organizers for Cloth Diapering

I keep pajamas with my diapering stuff because a lot of times a diaper change means an outfit change!
The easiest and most affordable way to keep all of the little things you need in a drawer organized (without using several drawers or wasting drawer space) is to get some drawer organizers.
They are life savers, especially for the price! I’ve already had mine 3 years and they’re still like new after all of the use and abuse.
And once your kids are out of diapers, you can still use them for their tshirts, shorts, socks, underwear, etc.
