With kids back in school, and the holidays on the horizon, the natural urge to purge and organize kicks in. I you’re looking for an inexpensive and stylish way to add more storage space and organization to your home, baskets may be the answer you’ve been looking for.
Baskets in the Kitchen
Baskets on a kitchen counter can collect mail, frequently used spices and kitchen gadgets, and give otherwise cluttered looking counters a stylishly organized feel. Use flat baskets to anchor countertop collections like these cute plants.
Baskets become cute and clever storage for fruits and vegetables when added to an island or pantry. Don’t know what to do with overhead cabinet space? Add lined baskets to hold rarely used, but hard to part with kitchen gadgets, linens and such.
Baskets in the Entryway

Easily corral loose items and encourage kids and adults alike to store their shoes and such with large baskets stored under a console. Big baskets maintain an open, airy look, while staying polished and don’t require a lot of organization.
