Organize and Decorate your home from a Goodwill Easterseals Store

As Kathryn from Do It on a Dime says in the video below, storage baskets are plentiful at Goodwill and go a long way to streamline a home. Wicker baskets are perfect to store smaller accessories like scarves, handbags, and belts and would beautify shelving. Rolling storage containers, like the black one shown in the video, are an efficient use of floor space in your closet since they can easily glide out of the way when necessary. Don’t like the color of a thrift shop basket? Spray paint can fix that! If you use these ideas, or  have made an incredible find at one of our stores, please let us know in the comments.
