I like baskets. Not laundry baskets. Or waste baskets. But little cute ones, for organizing? They’re da bomb. (Do people still say that?)

So sometime last summer I combined my fascination with baskets with my new habit of buying more fruits and veggies and my smallish refrigerator. I can’t really leave fruit and veggies out (you know, the ones that don’t have to be refrigerated) because I don’t really have room for that either.


I put the baskets… IN THE FRIDGE.

Oh yes, I did.

fridgebasket1I have a basket for extra fruit, a basket for “little jars” (to keep them from getting lost in the back) and a basket for meats (the red one) to make room for the cheeses in the drawer.

Pay no attention to that top basket, it’s now where the oranges are, you know, holding oranges. And apples. And such. It’s also not that clean and sparkly right now. Just so ya know.

The kids always know where to go to find things. I know because they’re often coming out of the kitchen with an apple or a string cheese.

Putting groceries away is a breeze. Yeah – I make them do it. So what?

And things don’t get “mysteriously lost” and go to waste. Or at least.. notsomuch.

So baskets aren’t just for shelves and cabinets anymore! Oh no they’re not. I say a basket can go just about anywhere you want it to! Even in the fridge.

Hey, y’all! I’m Amber and I wear many hats. I drink a ton of coffee and I’m constantly sweeping crumbs off the floor. After 18 years of homeschooling, I’m getting close to graduating my third child and now we are starting over at preschool with our fourth, Lil Miss Mouse. She keeps us young and she’s the main reason for my excessive coffee consumption. Drink up!
