In honor of Easter this coming weekend, we thought we'd take today's Tip Tuesday to share with you some of our new favorite baskets and ideas on how to use them. With the help from our friends over at The Organizing Store, we've put together a fun list of must-haves.
A Basket for Blankets – We all have so many blankets lying around. Putting them in a large basket not only gives them a home, but makes for pretty decor around the house.
A Basket for Shoes – Not only is this a huge space saver in the shoe department, but it also allows one to be a bit untidy because even loosely tossing your shoes in a basket is better than having them strewn about all over your floor. Just think, you'll never have to search under your bed again if you have a basket in place to catch all of your shoes.
A Basket for Snacks – You will stop over buying food when you are able to see what you actually have in your pantry. You will be saving $ and won't be afraid for people to see what's behind your pantry doors. We're mildly obsessed with these copper baskets! Aren't they so pretty???
A Basket for Toys – Need we say more?? Kids toys are always an area of the home that is absolute chaos. Designating actual bins and baskets for each category allows for easier clean up and less tears when your little one knows where all of their toys are.
As you've heard us say, no home is NEAT without the use of bins and baskets. Just make sure each basket serves a purpose and you are well on your way to living a more organized life.
