  • Stacking Baskets

    March 29th, 2016

    In our kitchen we keep two baskets [1], one for recycling and one for kitchen laundry. We've kept them on the floor since we moved in, but because that means Lily can get at them we needed to keep sharp recycling separately. Which was a pain, because we'd forget to take that out. Additionally, this meant using more floor space than would be ideal. So I made small table that holds one basket over another:

    To keep Lily from pulling it down on top of herself, it has a hook:

    The hook means you can't pull the basket out by pulling down or out, you have to lift it up. It's easy from adult height, but very awkward from toddler height.

    And now we can keep cans in with the rest of the recycling:


    [1] Having lots of identical baskets is very nice. They stack, we can use them wherever, there are always plenty. We picked the 1.5 bushel Sterilite, probably because it was the Amazon top seller.
