DIY Diaper Basket and Toy Organization Project
We have a dedicated “toy area” in our family room and it has been out of control.
The chaos really started after Christmas with the influx of new toys and then after my daughter M’s birthday in early Spring things really spiraled out of control.
I finally reached a breaking point the other day, after the 10 millionth time walking by the mess.
I felt like it became such an eyesore and it simply didn’t have to be that way.
I decided to get my toddler in on the organization action by doing a simple “DIY Diaper Basket” that would allow us to access diapers on this end of the house and also have her help me organize her toys.
Read on to learn more about Huggies Little Movers diapers and see our DIY and before & after pictures.
About Huggies Little Movers
I learned that only Huggies® diapers have a stretchy SnugFit Waistband to help diapers stay in place like no other diaper.
The unique contoured shape provides a comfortable fit and stays in place as babies move and play.
I also learned that they are now even more absorbent with new and improved LEAK LOCK®—the protection and security you both need between changes.

Before Pictures of Our Toy Area
Check out our before and progress pictures of this project.
It only took less than an hour to get everything organized.
I got my daughter involved by helping dust with a wipe and while she did get distracted when she re-discovered her “lost” toys, that was okay because she’s only a toddler and I think she got a little sense of accomplishment doing the project alongside her mommy 🙂
Here’s a halfway point photo, sometimes things have to get a little messy before getting organized.
We pulled everything out, dusted all surfaces, swept up with a floor sweeper, and utilized all the containers I have to help organize her toys. Everything has its place!
I set aside any toys that I can bring to the children’s consignment store.
I regularly clear out old toys that she has aged out of or that she doesn’t like.
Anything that sells at the children’s consignment store goes right into her college fund!
I think it’s good to donate whenever possible too.
DIY Diaper Basket – A Step-by-Step Tutorial
My daughter was hands-on for this simple DIY!
Here she demonstrates the steps to making a little diaper basket to keep diapers handy.
Materials needed for DIY Diaper Basket
- A basket
- Huggies Little Movers Diapers
- Huggies Wipes
- A little helper!
Step-By-Step Tutorial for DIY Diaper Basket
- Find around the house or buy a medium-large basket or container to hold the diapers and wipes
- Have your “helper” help get the diapers out the of the box
- Arrange diapers and wipes (in a container) in basket
- Place finished DIY Diaper Basket in a convenient place and you are finished!
It’s key to clear off tabletops and surfaces when organizing so space doesn’t feel cluttered.
It’s easier on the eye.
1-2 or even 3 items on a surface is okay but more than that makes an area start looking messy again.
Keep toys stored below in bins.
I use plastic shoe boxes to help organize her toys in different categories and have one bin for odds and ends.
We put away any plush/stuffed animal toys in her room.
I have a massive sigh of relief when all her toys are organized!
Here’s a side-by-side photo collage of the toy area before and after.
There’s still a lot of stuff but they are all toys she actively uses and they all have their place.
