Isn't the little latch neat?
In my boys rooms I use baskets alot for storage.
An old wire basket for books
An old locker basket for Baseballs
In the mudroom we keep this basket by the backdoor. With three boys in an out all day, they keep their flip-flops and sandals in here.
More baskets under the mudroom bench filled with football and soccer equipment.
I even have this tray basket to keep my mail and paper work in for the week.
Oh I could keep showing you baskets but you know, with a small home, I think that they are such a great way to store things and still look neat and pretty!
