Organizing with wire baskets

Wire basket available at Amazon
This is the basket I use most often at my house. In my kitchen, I keep apples in them and sometimes onions. But don't put them right next to each other because they will give off gases that make each other ripen too fast. So one basket on one side of the kitchen with fruit and one on the other side of the kitchen with onions and garlic works best. They look like gym lockers we had in high school and I had to get over thinking about that because they are so perfect for the job, sturdy and easy to clean. I have one for library books and one for cleaning supplies under the sink in the bathroom.

I want to get one of these for my dining room so people can grab some fruit if they are still hungry after dinner - making it more convenient to eat right.

Same three-compartment storage basket - this one is vertical.

Whenever I move this is one of the first things I buy - a three tier basket - I use them for onions and garlic. It's really the best way to store fruits and veggies because the air circulation keeps the produce from going bad as fast. You can often find them at the dollar store.
