Baskets…Baskets…And a New Purpose For a Flower Pot and Shoe Organizer

When you come in my home you will see that I love baskets..They are everywhere…They hold everything…There is no telling what you might find in some of them around here.  Here are a few that will stick out the most…

My dresser….My most used things in a convenient location.

jan2009 022  Left over party supplies…I always store them in zip lock baggies and put them in this basket in the top of our hall closet.  Everything is ready to use when needed.jan2009 011

A new purpose for a flower pot….

jan2009 019 Great for holding magazines.

A new purpose for a shoe organizer…

jan2009 020 When you have girls you have plenty of head bands, pony tail holders, clips, ribbons and bows…What can you do with them?  Put them in one of these!  This is in Kayla’s closet.  But when I redo the kids bathroom I plan on purchasing one for the back of the door in there because of the lack of storage space.  I can also see curling irons, flat irons and hair dryers stored neatly away. (after they have cooled of course) *smiles*

I remember getting those baskets that hold the dvds with you...about repurposing the shoe organizer,do that ourselves and it holds all the hair products as well as extra shampoos and conditioners we've stocked up on:)

I love baskets too and use them everywhere just like you. I have been trying to get my husband to let me put his dvd's in a basket. He refuses! :) He says that his dvd's are the last thing he has in our house and he wants to see them. :) ha!

I am such a fan of baskets in the house too...in fact I just bought another big one for my new baby's room today! Can never have enough, right?

You had me at Shoe Organizer. ;) Actually, I have one like that and it does not hold my shoes (they are far too precious to be hung on the back of a door!) but rather is used just like yours! I lurve your baskets. Sadly, M hates baskets and is forever griping when I put one somewhere. Men.
