Simple storage


I love love love baskets.  Everything looks better in baskets, I say.  When the chaos of the house seems overwhelming, putting stuff into baskets makes me happy.  There's nothing better than finding that perfect $1 basket at the thrift store - and it's recycling, too.  I often covet the gorgeous new baskets in the stores, but when I go on the hunt I often find just what I want (often even exceeding my own expectations) for pennies.  All the kids' toys go in baskets, my yarn stash lives in baskets, even the napkins in the kitchen belong in a basket.  Do you have a container you love?

Baskets are great. They make everything seem pulled together. My personal favorite storage containers are Altoids tins and jelly jars. I have them tucked away all over the place.

Two peas in a pod Erin - I love baskets and I put everything in them too. My other love is pretty tins.
