Organize with Baskets, Baskets and more Baskets!

Tuesday Mar 30th, 2021


Baskets come in all shapes and sizes. There are so many uses for them around the home and office. They are a great way to organize all your items large and small, but not only are they functional, but they can look great too! Now there are so many types and styles of baskets with so many different materials and colours to choose from. I tend to like the natural looking baskets.

Great Organizing Tips for Baskets:

Medium and smaller baskets are great for putting on shelves to make the clutter disappear.  For an office baskets can be used for files, smaller ones for supplies, and perfect for putting your daily receipts in before filing.  Attach a label to each basket to make it look even more attractive and to say what is inside.  A small chalkboard on each basket is another great way to create a label.  You can use a basket as an attractive garbage bin, a large one for laundry and small ones for drawers to organize office supplies, jewellery, socks and underwear, and cosmetics, etc. Whatever you use your baskets for they certainly add an attractive touch to your décor. 

If you find a basket with handles, you can hang it on a wall or even make a display of a few to keep things tidied away.  Hang a basket on a door handle or hook and throw your receipts in it as you come in the door. 

When organizing your home make sure you purchase a few baskets to help hide the clutter. If Selling your home it will hide away items you may not want others to see as well as make your home appear super organized and tidy.

Some great places to buy baskets are Ikea, the Dollar store, Walmart, Bouclair, Pier 1 Imports, Urban Barn.. just to name a few.  You can pay a small amount at the dollar store, but some baskets can really be high in price depending on the materials it's made from and size.  Ikea tends to have a large assortment of lower priced to mid priced baskets. 

I guess you can tell... I love Baskets! I'm always buying a few more.  I hope I have given you an idea or 2 of how you can use a basket in your home or office.  Happy Basket Organizing!
