Kitchen Storage

For a few months now, I've been trying to find a good storage solution for fruit and vegetables in the kitchen. Since moving into our house, I'd been using a large white bowl to hold fruit and veggies. It worked well for the most part, but sometimes I get a little gung-ho with the produce and end up with far more potatoes, apples, bananas, tomatoes, etc than can fit in my pretty white bowl.

Then I discovered Pinterest.

Pinterest introduced me to joys and wonders of beautiful and cool things I will never have or have time to make, but alas, I spend lots of time there. That's where I found these very cool wall baskets. Perfect for the small piece of wall between the pantry and the fridge. Perfect...if they were still available.

My search began, and every time I thought I'd found the best basket, it ended up being the wrong size or far more expensive than I wanted to go with.

Finally, I came across some great baskets at Kohl's. They were originally $30, on clearance for $5 each. I happened to have a gift card for Kohl's, so those baskets were free! That's the best price ever. So, without further ado, here's my new fruit and veggie storage in the kitchen.

Nice, huh? I just hope the girls don't go crazy trying to grab the lower one from the wall.

  1. HI! I got your comment about my beds, but couldn't reply to the e-mail! We do love the jr. lofts, as they aren't so high for bed making and if they decide to jump out (not allowed in my house - but you know how kids can be!) Because of the lower height, they do feel a little bulky and close in the room. The kids didn't play under them as much as I hoped they would (their one year old sister loved it under there though!). We just recently took one bed out and put a mattress on the floor under one junior loft, and I'm loving that! They are having a blast with their "bunk beds". I also like that it isn't so high, we have a ceiling fan in there and I was afraid they'd hit it if they had a true bunk bed.

    It is a challenge putting multiple kids in smaller rooms, but we're making it work! Best of luck to you!

  2. I love these baskets! I might have to try something like this in my house.

    1. Thank you! I couldn't believe the deal! They hold at least four pounds of apples easily, so I'm pretty excited to free up some counter space.
