I just got a few more cloth lined wicker baskets today. They are so stunning and make any pile pretty and presentable.<br><br>
I'm so excited. I love baskets!

Where'd you get them?<br><br>
I have been looking but they are so darned expensive everywhere I find them. Next time I get a 40% off coupon from Michael's (craft store) I think I'll take a look.

Joannes and Micheals always have them half off. I am so messy though that I find I can't keep the cloth clean so I toss that and just use the wicker. I keep all of ds's toys in ugly plastic bins, all sorted with pictures and labels, and let him pick out a couple at a time, then we keep them out in the wicker baskets. Works great!

Ross and TJ Maxx also usually have great deals on baskets.

I found some nice ones at the Christmas Tree store. I think they only have them here in New England, though.

I don't know how to upload photos, but I'm using the lined ones to hold newspapers next to the couch, to hold library books, to hold DD's personal books, to hold bills and to hold pictures.<br><br>
In DD's room I have one for her toys, one for her books, and two for her clothes (in lieu of a dresser so that she can dress herself). In our bathroom I'm using one on the back of the toilet to hold various toiletries.<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

while watching the movie Popeye w/Robin Williams last night, i was noticing all of the awesome baskets on the sets......they used them for everything, including Sweetpea.....huge baskets!<br><br><br>
i've found three awesome huge baskets...one is the trash that is now a cat bed, another at a yard sale for a $1 that is our clothes hamper...and another at a yard sale for a buck that we use for hats and gloves.<br><br>
i use baskets in all the bathrooms too. and to hold stuff in the kitchen.

I found some great ones at Michaels and Target!! I use one in the family room under the coffee table to hold magazines and catalogs and I have one next to DS's recliner in the family room to hold all of his library books. I have baskets on the entertainment center to hold various things too.<br><br>
I love baskets too!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">
