Organizing Baskets

There are so many different types of baskets, but not all of them will work in every area. Let’s go over a few of the most popular and determine where best to use the.

What is a storage basket?

A storage basket is a container that does not have a lid. They can come in different styles, sizes, and designs. The most popular are usually made out of wicker, plastic, wood, or cloth, with a few unusual ones made from rope or other unique materials.

Having so many options ensures you will find one that matches the style of any room.

Woven Baskets

Receipts are one of those things that are hard to keep track of yet important that you do not want them lying all over your home. A simple way to organize receipts is by using small woven baskets. I love taking it one step further and using a coupon file to organize receipts by month or type of receipts.

With this basket, receipt clutter can be easily contained on your desk.

Foldable cloth baskets are another type of basket that can help keep a bedroom closet organized. Whether they are socks, t-shirts, or flip-flops, these baskets keep things organized in the bedroom and your closet.

Wooden Baskets or crates

Wooden containers are pretty durable and that means they will work well containing heavy items. Let’s look at a few ideas.

Kid’s Toys

Kids’ bedrooms are a great place to teach children to keep their rooms organized and durable baskets will help.

Use these sturdy baskets to hold toys, shoes, puzzles, or games. If your children are younger, you can use photos of the item kept inside to help your kids know what belongs where.

Canned Goods

Organizing other parts of the home is easy with crates. You can use them in any room including your kitchen pantry. Because they are made of wood they will be durable enough to hold heavy items such as canned goods or jars.

Children love to read books and having an easy spot to hold the books can be helpful especially if your kids are younger.

A wooden great is a great way to hold books allowing them to be stored on the floor where your children can access them more easily.

Wire Baskets

Wire baskets are a great organizing tool because they allow you to see what is stored inside. A good area for this style of basket is in the entryway.

Use them to hold shoes, scarves, pet toys, or bookbags.
