I have a thing about organization. My life in general seems to run much more smoothly if things are organized.
One of my greatest tools for keeping groups of things organized is baskets. I use them in all shapes and sizes and, lest you doubt that this is true, I went around the house yesterday snapping pictures of some of my baskets.
This one is on top of our desk in the office area and keeps computer games organized.
This basket in the living area is full of dvd’s and videos.
In the girls’ playroom, various baskets hold horses, dolls, doll accessories and dollhouse paraphernalia.
Under the sink in the girls’ bathroom is this basket that holds nail polish, lip gloss and other “beauty” products (which, at their current ages, they are only allowed to wear when they play dress up). There are a few other baskets throughout the house, but I think you get the drift! : ) Baskets are attractive containers, can be easily moved around and make it simple for me to keep similar objects grouped together.
