Every room in our home is being downsized.
As we anticipate an out-of-state move
within the next year,
it just makes sense to free ourselves of all but the essentials.
Why pack, move and store what's not used on a regular basis?
Cookbooks were among the items sorted through
and all but a handful were donated to the library book store.
Any specific recipes that might be needed,
especially with allergies in the family,
can be easily found online or acquired at the local library.
This basket was picked up at a local thrift store for $2.
It's deep and wide enough
to store the few books I refer to on a regular basis.
A clothespin was added to secure any outgoing bills
or coupons that may soon expire.
Inside there is ample room for a cell phone,
keys, notes or store returns.
The basket can easily be taken to other areas
should the urge to browse occur.
The bonus is that instead of having to move
each and every book (and other items)
when wiping down counters,
simply lifting up one basket makes cleaning a breeze.
