Storage Opportunities -Bring Me A Basket


My favorite storage option for pillows, linens, books, magazines, dog toys and more.  A plethora of sizes, shapes, tone and textures are available.  Officially get organized month is over tomorrow, but are good ideas for storage ever ‘OVER”?

You can use baskets in your entry area to collect shoes, mail and kids backpacks.  In your bedroom to place your decorative bedding pillows in until the next day, in family rooms to store magazines and hold comfy throws.  Baskets work great on shelves to store smaller items such as music CDs or DVDs.

Here are a few options to consider :

Simple and rectangular from Crate and Barrel,  round and deep from Restoration HardwareStorage Baskets








You can find baskets of all configurations at retailers such as Target, Marshalls Home Goods,  and Michael’s Arts and Crafts .  Baskets are great tools to organize small office items.  Add a few that are colorful to give a pop of interest to a neutral decor scheme.  Check out these great ones from Cost Plus World Market.

The addition of baskets on the bottom shelves of this ‘open’ bookshelf design give the shelving more visual weight and interest doesn’t it??

So, where can you add great looking, and highly functioning BASKETS in your home and office environment?
