After buying diapers for over 10 years, we had grown out of that stage of life with our older four boys. After not having to carry a diaper bag, keep a stash in the car, or even buy diapers, it was an adjustment to do so after our fifth boy came along. One thing that I learned with our fifth boy that I didn’t learn with the first four, is that I love Huggies® Little Movers. I don’t think there could be a more appropriate name for diapers when it comes to my 21 month old. He never stops moving! 🙂 Huggies® Little Movers Diapers are designed for active babies and the best fit ever that holds the diaper in place during active play. Because we like to keep a stash of diapers and wipes in our family room, I decided I wanted to keep them organized and contained, so I came up with this Family Room Diaper Organizer.
We like to keep a stash of diapers in the family room where we can easily grab one when we are down stairs and quickly do a diaper change, but this is normally what the Huggies® Little Movers and Huggies® One & Done Wipes look like. It’s not pretty. I decided that I wanted to build a box for these diapers and wipes to go in, so it looked a little cleaner in the family room.

I love that because I’m a member of Sam’s Club, I can head there and pick up both Huggies Little Movers and Huggies One & Done Wipes while I’m there doing my other shopping, so it saves me time. Plus, right now there is a limited time instant savings on Huggies diapers, wipes and pants this holiday season.

They do the shopping for you!
Family Room Diaper Organizer Instructions:
If you’re like me, you probably have a specific spot to keep diapers in your home. I measured the space we keep ours and made my box to fit that. My space is 15″ x 17″. I calculated out my cuts of wood based on the finished size I needed. I used a 1″ x 6″ cut down to 4″ tall (it’s what I had on hand, you can probably purchase a board closer to the right size) and then cut my side pieces to 17″ and 13.5″. The base of my box was cut from 1/4″ MDF to be 13.5″ x 15.5″ to allow for the width of the sides.
We cut a groove in the bottom of each side board, about a quarter inch from the bottom.
I stained all the sides of the box using some gray stain.
Once the stain was dry, I nailed it together. I started at one corner, placing the box bottom in the groove, and then nailed it. Then I moved onto the next corner.
I did this until the entire box was built.
I took it inside and filled it up with my Huggies® Little Movers and Huggies® One & Done Wipes. I love that it turned out to be the perfect size for both the diapers and wipes!
And look how perfectly it fits in its space! I love that I don’t have a mess of diapers here anymore!
It’s easy to pull out, almost like a drawer, and I just have to grab a diaper and package of wipes.
Then it slides right back into place.
It’s the perfect solution to keeping the diapers under control in the family room! I’ve shared a few other ideas for using Huggies Diapers and Wipes before. If you’ve like to see those, you can check them out here.Linking up to some of these parties.
