18 New Uses for Baskets
Silverware caddy (shown). Juggling fistfuls of flatware while trying to set the table? Tote them gracefully instead.
Snack arranger. For kids, place afternoon treats in a basket (with healthy ones oh-so-subtly positioned toward the front). Put it on a low, kid-level shelf.
Piece of found art. Liven up a wall by hanging three or more baskets of the same color or material.
Memory saver. Stowing photographs in drawers leads to misplaced memories. Designate a basket to hold pictures until they find a permanent home.
Remote-control center. Even hungry sofa cushions can’t swallow a basketful of neatly stored clickers.
Stationery kit. You’ll avoid the eternal hunt for a pen and paper if you keep all your writing supplies in the same place.
