1. In Closets

I organized my closet last year and have these two baskets in there. The giant basket holds my comfy and running shorts (although I don’t run) and workout tank tops. The smaller basket contains my pajama shorts. And this is how I store them in my closet.

2. Baskets In Your Junk Drawer

There isn’t a person I have ever met that doesn’t have a junk drawer. So why not make the junk drawer work for you? These little baskets are perfect for them. I have them in several drawers. But, unfortunately, I’m an overachiever with more than one junk drawer.

3. In Your Medicine Cabinet

In our house, all the bathrooms have these kinds of mirrors. So I took the one in this bathroom-turned-laundry room and used it as a medicine cabinet. These are the same baskets that I use in my junk drawer. They fit perfectly in here. I can separate the ointments, colds, allergies, and daily medications.

5. In Kid’s Rooms

My oldest son is a gamer. So we got him a new desk this past Christmas with two shelves. If you have a gamer, then you know they have tons of controllers, cords, and maybe even a headset. That is what my son has. I used a fancier basket for this project.

7. Baskets For Workout Gear

I don’t work out a lot. But I love to collect workout things for when I decide to work out. Does anybody else do this? So I put these things in this little basket to keep them from being scattered everywhere. It holds my yoga mat, weights, resistance bands, and a massage gun, to name a few.

  1. Okay YES to the baskets – I saw a TikTok about how this was an interior designers hack for keeping homes clean – have designated baskets for things around the house! Love that you use a variety too, not just going out and buying a set from the Container Store, etc. Use what you have. Goodwill always has so many good wicker baskets – I will definitely be picking some up to use in a few ways that you suggested!


    1. Oh yes I’m all about use what you got. Most basket I have I didn’t buy. They were either given as a gift or my mom was getting rid of them. I never turn down any kind of containers. This was just a fraction of the baskets I have in use. Maybe I’ll do a part 2 to the post.
