I love this clever idea - it's so simple and so practical. And how inexpensive too! Check out flea markets for vintage ones that have even more character, or try a great store on the Danforth called IQ Living for new pieces that are similar to these.
These handy baskets can also be used for many other things - toiletries, toilet paper, in the kitchen for potatoes or apples, in the laundry room for dryer sheets and detergent and in the bedroom for small clothing items on an open shelf in the closet!
Other great ideas are welcome - let us all know!
