Crochet Your Way to Organization

I don’t know about you, but I jump at the chance to organize stuff. Grouping like items together, straightening clutter and discarding trash brings me immense joy. And it’s not just my own home that I like organizing. I love helping friends tackle large organizational challenges—the bigger the disaster zone, the better! I mean, what can be more fun than hours and hours of organizing? Crocheting baskets and organizers, of course!

The New Year is a great excuse to make crochet baskets, organizers, and pouches. Here are some of my favorite organizational solutions that you can whip up pretty quickly.basket_cases_600x600
