Simple Solutions: Momma Knows Best

Awhile back my mom purchased a couple wall hanging baskets for my house. She had one of her own and wanted to share the love so we popped into World Market to snatch them up. It was the perfect simple solutions for two areas of my home. 

The first, smaller sized basket is housing my furbabies' leashes. They need to be easily accessible and always ended up setting out on one of our side tables which of course drove me crazy. Every time we had people coming over I found myself trying to quickly stash the leashes somewhere out of the way. Now we have a perfect home for them right beside our front door. It's such a small item that most people would never noticed, but it has become one of my favorite things in the house. Oh, how I love organization. Oh, wow. I am such a nerd.

The second basket is a little larger and is storing some magazines in our bathroom. Not that they are ever needed in there. I wasn't really looking for a magazine holder, but I was looking for something to fill in the big white, blank side of our bathroom vanity. It's the first thing you see when you walk into the bathroom and it just isn't attractive. We originally were hoping to add a towel bar onto the side of the vanity, but the awkward size didn't allow for it. Luckily, my clever mother suggested in the basket and it worked like a charm. Now there's something breaking up that boring white space.

Yay for simple solutions! It really is the little things that bring a smile to my face. Living with things clean and organized makes life just a little better.

Until next time...
