Using bins and baskets


Storage is always a challenge no matter the size of your home. Do you often find yourself wondering where you’re going to store things when it doesn’t fit in a closet or drawer? Tucking things away can be done without a care and look organized at the same time. When organization is challenging, let the baskets and bins do the work!

Bins and baskets are a helpful way to add some convenient décor to your abode while keeping things simple. They are an excellent way to nicely place items that you usually misplace or that are in an “overflow.” This comes in handy after the holiday season especially, when you have an unusual amount of alcohol that doesn’t fit in your bar area or when you find yourself up to your knees in children’s toys and books. 

Using bins to clear away the clutter and store items out of sight is as easy as 1-2-3!

Here are some items you can place into bins and baskets:

  • Overflow of alcohol
  • Children’s toys
  • Children’s bath items
  • Diapers, wipes  and creams
  • Incoming/outgoing mail
  • Fruits and vegetables – for storing them on the counter
  • Blankets
  • Extra pillows in your bedrooms
  • Dog toys 
  • Shoes by the back door
  • Magazines, remotes and miscellaneous things on your coffee table
