Square Hughes Bin
I love this storage bin!
My husband and I just moved back to live with my mom in my childhood home as we await the arrival of our first baby. For the next few months my husband and I will be living in 1 room, sharing it with Baby, so organization is key (and is something I'm not very good at!). I found these Hughes crocheted storage containers at The Container Store and bought several (in different sizes), used them all, and loved them so much I went back and bought several more.
I cannot emphasize enough how terrific these bins are! I am using them in the baby's dresser to contain socks, booties, hats, bibs, pacifiers, onesies, sleepers, swaddle sacks, receiving blankets, burp cloths and bottles/accessories. The dresser looks SO organized - I'm kind of proud of it! This might sound strange, but it feels really good to know that everything has a home - and I think this will be really important once the baby is here and our emotions run haywire from exhaustion.
In addition to the enjoyment I get from these bins, they seem really practical. They are flexible so they hold things well, and also fit into cramped spaces well. Also, they collapse! This is huge, since we will be moving in a few months - all I need to do is fold them up and they lie flat.
As soon as I come up with additional uses, I'm headed back for a third round of buying these fantastic bins :) See pictures - note that I am using different sizes

Great little basket
I purchased three of these to hold small items in my new closet. they are well made and stand up well on a shelve. I do wish that there was a square size that was bigger as this size does not hold a lot.

The two square Hughes Ben I recently purchased are the cutest, most practical storage items I've ever used. Every time I open the drawer, I smile.
They work amazingly well in my bathroom drawer. The items in the drawer are all different sizes and shapes and these bins allow all of them to fit easily due to the flexibility of the bins width and height. I'm now in the process of determining which other Hughes Bins will work in other drawers. The variety of sizes and shapes makes my task an easy one.
Looking forward to more smiles each day!

cute catch all
Very cute little catch-all basket. I bought 5 and lined them up on a deep windowsill in our living room to catch and sort little but important things that end up all over the house - each kid has one and they serve as a little "station" for things like cell phones etc that are otherwise lying around. 4 stars bc they do look a little unstructured and messy. If you have really formal decor, they may not work for you.
