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. From thicker to plastic to cloth you are sure to find one that matches the style of any room.
Receipts are one of those things that are hard to keep track of yet important that you really 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.
Kid’s bedrooms are a great place to teach children to keep their rooms organized. If closet space is limited an armoire with shelves can work. The top shelf for storing items in sturdy cloth baskets labeled with the items that it holds. On the side shelves, wooden crates are great to store stuffies or blankies. Modeling this to a child teaches them to not only love and respect their space but also how to keep it organized.
Wooden Baskets or Crates
Organizing other parts of the home is easy with crates. A pantry can also benefit from them. The crates are perfect for storing snacks and baking items. Place them on the shelf and label them with nice tags and now you have an organized pantry too.
Children love to read books. It can become a clutter zone if children do not know where their books belong. A great way to organize books is to use a decorated large crate with the child’s name in wooden letters. All children love the feeling of owning something that holds the items they love and a large crate can do the trick.
Another area of the home that can become cluttered is the entryway. Storage baskets can help keep this under control when coming in from daily errands. A wired storage basket under the console table is ideal for storing indoor shoes.
The family room is another place that can use storage baskets to organize items. How can I organize using baskets? Use wicker baskets under the coffee table to store pillows or throws. It’s easy to pull these items out of the basket when you’re ready to use them because they’re neatly placed.
If a coffee table does not work for the pillow then a large basket in the corner of the room holding the couch pillow will do as well. This not only can be a decorative piece in the room but it can have the pillows nearby when needed.
The kitchen is another room that can easily use storage baskets. Using wicker baskets that look like boxes can help keep the mail clutter that accumulates on the counter. Many people tend to pick up the mail and then place it on the counter to glance at later. Well, sometimes that later becomes a couple of days or a week. These box baskets can do the trick to tuck the mail aside until you are ready to sort through it.
Linen closets are a great place to use cloth baskets. Sorting sheets by size can never be more easer than using these baskets. The best part is the handles make it easy to pull them out and carry them to the laundry room to refill or take them to a bedroom to change the sheets. For the larger duvet, a compactor storage box is a great solution to store the blankets together.
If you love to knit these cute storage baskets are great to store yarn, scissors, or knitting needles. The great thing about these baskets is that they can be customized to match the decor of any room. The baskets can also be easily stored on a side table in the family room.
Last but not least, old baskets inherited from grandma can be a great organizing tool. With a little paint, you can bring it back to life, and you can store pillows or throws in them as well. You can place these baskets in the family room near the TV so they’re readily accessible when the weather gets cold.
So if you’re looking for a fast and easy way to get your home organized, basket organizers are the way to go. By using organizing baskets, you can quickly and easily declutter your home and make it more stylish and inviting.
