Friday Favorite: Basket Case
Baskets can be a great way to keep things organized. These baskets are a favorite of our organizer Pam. She uses them on stairs and has individual baskets for each member of the family. When an item is out and needs to be put away, it’s placed in the appropriate basket. These CD baskets are the perfect size for stairs, so when family members are heading up the stairs, they just grab their basket. Of course it’s important to note that these baskets are only for items in transition. They must be emptied regularly in order to perform the function they are meant for. There are, of course, many other uses of baskets to store and contain items, they can help to keep you organized in many ways.
Baskets, or any container for that matter, should be labeled. When baskets and containers get filled with miscellaneous “stuff” they can cause more chaos than order. When used properly, baskets can play a great role in helping to keep you organized. The baskets shown here are from Target, only $6.99—a great deal too!
