Bedroom Nesting – Sort The Baby Clothes

For each month until my bub arrives (October), I’m having a nesting theme (see here for more details). June’s theme is Bedrooms. So far, I’ve made curtains and London blinds, but nesting should involve a bit of cleaning and organisation too.

I kept all my son’s baby clothes as we always wanted more than one child. However, I never really had a system to keep the clothes he’d grown out of organised. I just shoved them in a drawer (and sometimes on a shelf) in Number 2’s bedroom. This is what it looked like:

After finding out that Number 2 is a girl (now known as Princess Jellybean instead of just Jellybean), it was time to sort through the mess. I sorted by size, and separated items that are too boyish to put on a girl (which wasn’t much since I like girls in blue!).

I packaged up the boyish clothes by size in zip-lock bags, and put them on a shelf in the wardrobe. I’m not getting rid of them just yet, in case the laundry gets out of control and Princess Jellybean runs out of clothes!

I then neatly organised two drawers, dividing them with Blu-Tak and ribbon. I included size labels on the edge of the drawers, made with my label maker – even Dad should be able to work this out!

Confession: there was also a pile of clothes that were stained when they were put away and are heading to the laundry!

I now have a much better idea of what I need to buy for Princess Jellybean, notably teeny-tiny long-sleeve clothes, since she’s due in Spring and Number 1 Son was a summer baby. Now I shall bask in the glow of being organised (at least in one tiny part of the house!).


  1. Your organizing is can only dream.

  2. Way to go! You should bask! It looks great!
