Baskets don't usually sell well, so we used a lot of them as box lot boxes to hold assortments of product.
But we still had a zillion left over (that may be a slight exaggeration :) and most of them were small, not big enough to be used to hold product. Some of them I grouped together in a large lot, which will probably only bring the minimum bid of three dollars.
So I took all the one that were around 8-10 inches in diameter home. I love baskets of flowers, but I am hopeless with keeping house plants alive, so I couldn't line them with plastic and use them that way. (If you have a green thumb with house plants, these make great country pots!)
So I came up with another idea...
I have quite a stock of baskets now. Some of them will end up the garden and I will probably find other uses for the rest. You can find nice baskets at Goodwill and thrift stores for little of nothing.
Have an idea for another use for those unwanted baskets? I'd love to hear it!
