We do most of our home goods shopping (with the exception of thrifting) at the T.J. Maxx near us. And basically every time I go, I eye the laundry baskets (and all the home organizing things). And basically every time, I debate, grab one, and put them back—- but finally, after a year or so of procrastination, we solved the problem with the easiest solution there was: finally taking the (not very difficult plunge) of buying closed wicker baskets with lids. Easy peasy. And I couldn’t feel more relieved. Dirty laundry out of sight and out of mind. One pretty basket to organize the whites (Alex’s chef coats) and one pretty basket to organize all the rest of the colorful items.
I’ve said it before, you don’t need a lot of things, you just need a few good items you love. It’s easy to take care of the things we love— so even if its just taking the extra step to purchase a basket to organize your goods, it can be worth it. One of the easiest and best spring clean tips, really. A clean house is a happy house. And a happy house is easy to love 😉
