I love medium – large baskets. If I get to a client’s house and they have random large baskets for me to choose from I get so excited. It makes my job much easier because they’re so easy to use! Seriously, you can use them in closets, on shelves, in dens and offices, in the pantry; you can use them to store blankets, linens, stuffed animals, kids toys, winter gear, summer wear…. So many possibilities! And for you parents, they make clean up SOOO easy! Have your kids toss all of their balls into one basket, all of their stuffed animals into one basket, all of their whatever they have into a basket. Or, if it’s possible just lump all of their toys together in one basket. That’s the beauty of a basket: it’s contents don’t have to be perfectly arranged so you literally can just throw things in there.
And I’m not prejudiced. I love all kinds of baskets – wicker, metal, plastic, wire, fabric, whatever. If it’s a larger basket that I can use to help a person become more organized and stay organized, then I’m all about it.
Now, just to make things clear – I’m NOT advising you to go out and buy a bunch of random baskets with the hope that you’ll find uses for all of them (that’s another post for another time). But if you have a need and know you’ll use it TODAY, then go get one. It’s a simple and easy fix for clutter.
Do you love large baskets too? Or do you hate them and think they’re a waste of space? Comment below and let me know!
