Spring Organization - My 5 Favorite Baskets!

The 1st full day of Spring I believe is today, although it is rainy and chilly here in Southern California! I got the Marie Kondo itch to do some organizing and spring cleaning while stuck inside today, so I thought this would be a perfect time to share some of my favorite organization products. I get SO much pleasure from seeing something neat, clean and organized, and I realized that baskets really help me organize my home! Check out all the baskets I love below.


1. Baskets for pantry organization

These "Y weave" plastic baskets can really be used in any room or closet in your house. They are affordable, versatile, come in lots of sizes and 9 different colors. You can also buy them in a value pack. This is just a photo of how I use them for the snacks in my pantry: top shelf = 1 medium size on the left with nuts and seeds, 1 rectangle size in the middle with all of my protein and snack bars, 1 more medium size on the right with fruit snacks, dried fruit, etc.; bottom shelf = left side individual snacks, middle popcorn, right side, more chips and snacks.


2. Baskets for closet storage

Seems as these actual baskets are not available online anywhere, but I found the newer model for you here. I like to use these on the short top shelves of my closet for things like: hats, belts, and scarves. These can be awesome for bathroom product storage too, even maybe office storage, or toy storage if you have kids.



3. Baskets for under bed storage:

These can be used under the bed, in a shelf, under a desk , in a closet - pretty much ANYWHERE in your home. And they are so easy to shop for and affordable. They come in neutral colors to match your furniture, like white, tan, brown and black. I use brown ones in shelving unit for files, and then under my bed to store blankets, bedtime supplements and medications, and extra pillows! You NEED these! They come in a pack of 6 for less than $25, and they are super easy to pop out from folded and assemble.



These white cotton, canvas and cardboard baskets come in various sizes and look so cute in my office space, on a shelving unit. They are actually advertised as "toy bins", so that would be really cute too. I love the pop of gold on white and how it matches my decor - click here.




I use these in my bathroom to hold: my feminine products, washcloths, and bath products. These would be perfect for a nursery too - anywhere you need some storage with a little bit of a decorative touch. 


BASKETS ON BASKETS ON BASKETS:



In writing this blog post, I realized just how much I depend on baskets to store things in my home! They are so versatile, and you can find them in plastic, woven, cotton - pretty much any medium that matches your decor.

I hope you liked this blog post - I know it was a little different, but I was on a cleaning frenzy today and got inspired to share!

I would love to know of any great go-to baskets you use in your home and how you use them for organization!!

February Empties!

Happy March, Springtime, Daylight Savings-time, all the things!
I had a lot of empties pile up last month! Check out all the links and descriptions below.
You can shop ALL of my favorite things on AMAZON HERE - and am constantly updating this for you.


Clockwise from the top left:

  1. Collagen: Love this collagen protein powder in my coffee! It is so good for your hair, skin, nails & joints! Has no taste and mixes super easily. 
  2. Shower and Bath Gel: My favorite body wash. I keep 1 in the shower and 1 in the bath tub!
  3. Foundation: I love this foundation, I'd say it is a medium coverage, but feels good & lightweight - color: 120 = Y245 Soft Sand, for when I'm not tan. 
  4. Self Tanner: Always using this up and repurchasing, my #1 fav at home tanner. SO easy to apply, looks natural, and doesn't transfer or smell funny! 
  5. Lipgloss: This lip gloss produces lustrous, creamy color with a refreshing, minty, tingly sensation. I love this color - it is a nude-y pink sheer. 
  6. Day Cream: This was a sample size, but I linked the full size for you - which I have already purchased and started using. This cream offers hydration and broad spectrum UV protection in one product. Perfect for a day moisturizer under makeup or alone.
  7. Razor: The BEST razors to shave your face with! Buy these in bulk! 
  8. Perfume: Love this cotton-candy sweet perfume & it doesn't bother my Mom's allergies, so I always have it on my vanity. 
  9. Primer: Loved this sample and buying the full size - lightweight and smoothing to go under your foundation. 
  10. Eye Drops: These are expensive eye drops and run out too fast, but I love them so much! They make your eyes so bright and white and they don't burn. 
  11. Mascara: The big shot brush on this one features unique, wavy bristles that cradle lashes for a bold lash look. I would definitely rebuy. 
  12. Brush Head: I wore out and am replacing this acne attachment for my Clarisonic Mia
  13. Leave In Conditioner Spray: I ran out of leave in conditioner spray, and my Mom gave me this to use. I LOVED it! Hydrating, protecting, and smoothing. 
  14. Loose Powder: Laura Mercier's loose setting powder is the holy grail and softest of setting powders. I love this size for travel. 
  15. Night Cream: Another one you have seen before - the Estee Lauder age reversing line and wrinkle cream to use at night time. 
  16. Brush Cleaner Spray: I use this every day after I put my makeup on - just spray and wipe with a paper towel, and my makeup brushes stay soft and are never dirty.
What did you use up last month?
