I have never done this well. I've always wanted a h.u.g.e basket for putting blankets in. You know, the kind that are over $100.

Or this one from Restoration Hardware for a mere $149.

Now I know they sell them at Marshalls or TJ Maxx for a discounted $40-$60, but I still don't want to pay $50 for a basket. I love my husband that much!
Well, I busted out my blankets since its November now. And after rearranging the furniture in my living room a little, I had the perfect space to store my blankets beside the loveseat. Then, I remembered these two crates that were left here by the previous owner. I used them outside this summer to decorate the back porch....
Pretty nasty after being outside all summer and then in my scarey basement for a few days...
a good scrubbing and this would be my blanket "basket" improvised.. for F.R.E.E! It holds 5 throw blankets! I'm way excited! I didn't bother repainting or anything
Shopping the house never felt so good!
