Last Thursday I tackled Cruz's cupboard. The way it was before worked, but it wasn't practical. I'm a "everything needs a home" kinda girl and there certainly wasn't a home for everything in his cupboard. So, on Thursday, I pulled everything out of the cupboard and started again. I went to Bunnings and bought some Clever Cube shelves and storage boxes and then headed home ready to tackle the pile head on. Once everything was put back into the cupboard and into the individual cubes the cupboard looked like this. Love at first sight.
We hang all Cruz's clothes up, other than his pajamas and singlets which are folded neatly into the cubes. On the left hand side of his cupboard we put some jumbo storage cubes (also from Bunnings). The top cube has extra body wash, shampoos, creams etc. The second cube has his nappies, wipes and nappy bags. The third holds a few loose soft toys (at his height) and the bottom cube has his shoes.
I am still thinking of how to label these cubes and am still considering not labeling them at all, but at the moment hidden inside those cubes are:
Top Left - pajamas
Grey draws - socks and singlets
Top Right - Beach wear
Bottom Far Left - Spare blankets
Bottom Left - Hats/bibs/scarfs/beanies
Bottom Right - Bags
Bottom Far Right - Vapouriser
The top of his cupboard has his nappy bag (which is always prepacked ready for a mad dash) and two boxes on the top right of his cupboard which hold clothes that are too small or too big (until I find the time to transfer them into storage along with his other clothes).
Down the bottom of his cupboard on the right of the cube storage is his washing basket, which fits in just perfectly.It was meant to be.
Operation 'organise Cruz's cupboard' is complete and I am loving the new sense of order. Here is his cupboard with the doors back on and a sneak peak of his navy curtains hanging and new bookcases up in the left of the photo. His room is nearing completion now. Who knew decorating for little guys would be so fun?
