Longaberger Baskets...

This one holds plasticware and straws

This one holds my ipod accessories, etc
This one holds rental dvds and borrowed books

This one holds current magazines

This one holds photos

These hold different pasta types

This is my bedtime basket right by my bed :)

Office baskets: pens, paperwork that still needs filed, file cards, coins, etc

This is a seasonal basket I use in the fall

Pantry baskets to hold quick breakfast foods

This one holds bookmarks

This one holds all papergoods
I also ALMOST ALWAYS use other baskets when having a party for chips, etc.

Longaberger Baskets...Just another of my TOP FAVORITE things! There are MANY knockoffs of these baskets, but here are a few reasons to go for the real deal:

1) the smell... hehe, yes! You can actually smell the quality of the product. This is one of my favorite things about Longaberger baskets, surprisingly.

2) the feel...they feel 100 times more durable and solid than the knockoffs and the wood strips stay put like they're supposed to!

3) the look...you can see that every detail is in place. In fact, these are handmade in the USA and each basket is personally signed on the bottom by the one who made it.

I love baskets too! Thanks for showing us how you use them all. I use the fall basket for an ice bucket :) Fall is my favorite season and I can't bear to store it away!!

If you ever get the opportunity to go to the factory tour- do it! Its amazing and the homestead is soooooo awesome- shopping, restaurants, and family activities..its a really neat place to go, esp if you are a basket lover! You can even weave your own basket with a master basket weaver!

What beautiful baskets! I especially like the pasta ones. (By the way, it's my first time visiting here and I had to say that your boys are precious - if it's okay to say that about boys!)
