Cloth Diaper Routine & Storage + a Quick Haul

We have been part-time cloth diapering for a few months now & have a pretty easy routine down. In today’s video I show you a quick Thirstie’s haul from Christmas, our cloth diaper routine, & our storage.

My wash routine is so, so simple! I do a pre-wash, a hot heavy duty cycle, & an extra rinse cycle. I’ve used both Rockin’ Green & Charlie’s Soap detergents & both have worked great so far – no lingering smells. I’ve had a few stains to deal with, but they came right out after a few hours in the sun! Easy!

Our cloth diaper storage:

These drawers attached to Eli’s crib have given us the perfect amount of storage we have needed for cloth diapers and extras.

We moved this dresser into our living room in place of two large chairs during the Christmas season to make room for the tree, but it gave us such good storage that we left it in there. This is our diapering drawer and it fits exactly what we need it to.

Nursery Closet Tour & Organization

13575471_10102741738286702_1819566468_o

Today’s video is a tour of our baby boy’s nursery! We started on it and pretty much completed it months ago. We made a few changes to the shelving system and purchased bins from the Dollar Tree. We were lucky enough that they had the exact color we needed to match some of the nursery decor so I bought pretty much all that I could! I’m sure we’ll make a few changes once baby get here, but for now I think it will work well for us.

My Makeup Organization

Getting organized.  That’s an ongoing goal of mine and I’m getting it done little by little.  In this video I show you my makeup organization.  I wouldn’t quite call it a makeup collection – I used to “collect”makeup but over the past couple of years I have dwindled it down quite nicely to things I actually use.

We have limited space in our bathroom – that’s where I apply my makeup, I have to do it standing up for some reason – and I’m trying to keep the clutter on the counter to a minimum.  For now this is what is working for me.

Again with the clear acrylic organizers (this one from Marshall’s for $8).  I can’t get enough.  I love the clean, modern look.  The two glass containers are candle holders from the Dollar Tree.

Again, these organizers are from Marshall’s (6 piece set for $13).

That is all that’s left in my “collection”!  No more makeup stored here and there.  I’m also wanting to switch to more natural products so I will be doing some research so I can replace what I need to as I use products up.
