We have a weird set of shelves at the end of our kitchen counter. They're an awkward size, not adjustable, and I never could figure out how to use them.
Earlier this summer, I solved the mystery. It's a good thing, too. It was keeping me up at night.
But I do like my solution. I found these red baskets at Target for about $7 each.
Now, behold their versatility.
The top basket holds scorpion tongs. You heard me.
It's true. The best way to catch a scorpion is with a pair of tongs. And yes, sometimes I think about my life and shake my head. Hence the MNS.
On to less vomit-worthy subjects.
The middle basket is meant for Beep to enjoy, so it holds baby toys. Whichever toys are closest when I pick up at the end of the day go in the basket. There's no rhyme or reason to it, and this highly scientific approach makes for a great discovery for my baby the next day. She finds endless possibilities in the basket.
The bottom basket is also meant for Beep. Often, it holds toys.
Occasionally it holds a small, bald baby.
At the end of the day, empty of toys, the baskets remain on the floor in the background. They've done their job: the baby has been kept happy while the mama has cooked dinner, and they await a return trip to their respective shelves once again filled with toys.
What's your version of the red baskets in your house?
