My life in a basket...

I love baskets... Whenever I think things are getting out of control in my house (or my life for that matter)I get an incredible urge to reorganize... to do that I buy containers... big rubbermaid tubs, fabric drawers, dvd organizers... but my very favorite are baskets... I've seen pictures in magazines of shelves beautifully decorated with a simple basket... are things overflowing from the basket? No way... When you put a basket on the shelf of a model home it instantly becomes bottomless hiding all of the knick knacks and clutter inside... If anyone knows where I can buy those baskets please let me know! My house is covered in baskets... baskets to hold cookbooks,
baskets to hold coffee,
baskets to hold bathroom products,
baskets to hold remotes and cell phones,
and of course a basket to hold things I want to deal with later...
Do you know what happens when you have too many baskets??? You end up with a house cluttered in baskets and 100 different places to hold things you want to deal with later... So today my goal is to reorganize my containers for reorganization... Any suggestions?

  1. Ann, I do the same thing! Except my kids started emptying the baskets and standing on them until they collapse so I've had to find something more durable. :)

    Happy organizing! (BTW, I love your baskets. So cute!)
