I took a look around my house and realized how much I rely on baskets.
In the living room, I use one to corral cat toys....
and another beside the coffee table where I read and blog. It holds books and
magazines that I'm currently reading, my notebooks (I could do another whole blog
post on those!), and and paperwork that I need to go through.
On top of the coffee table, I have a large basket-tray that holds more books
(I read several at a time), bookmarks ~ and a friendly little bird.
Baskets can be simply used as a decorative purpose, too.
In the kitchen, I have baskets on the counter to corral coffee and tea items.
Keeps stuff looking neater, I think.
And this wire basket is just the right size to hold cloth napkins.
In my office, I use baskets to store and organize scrapbooking and art supplies.
This basket on the floor holds my current projects. I have other baskets on the
closet shelf that I use for more scrapbooking supply storage.
Most of my baskets are found at thrift stores, but this little cutie came from
Hobby Lobby. It holds a variety of my art pens and small notepads.
You know I couldn't do a post on baskets without showing you how they
hold some of my beloved books, right?
Even Brian gets a basket to hold his current reading material. This basket
fits perfectly under his nightstand.
I love how these baskets from IKEA fit perfectly into the cubes (also from IKEA).
I'm using these baskets to hold our board games. We love board games and
actually play them often. Even my teenage nieces love to play board games
with us when they visit!
What do you use baskets for in your home?
