Standard

I like to use baskets around the house.  They are attractive, not to mention, they keep things in their place.  Here are a few ways I use them:

  • Touch up the paint on the accent wall in the family room, purchase a ceiling fan for my bedroom, replace the bathroom vent
  • Clean the junk drawers, organize and purge recipe file
  • Empty the reycling bin
  • Organize the game closet
  • Go through Nicholas’ closet and gather items he can no longer fit
  • Organize photos
  • Clean under my bed
  • Get Nicholas’ artwork framed
  • Replace laundry room doors
  • Rake leaves and clean gutters and flower beds
