As we count down the final few weeks before we can socialise and MAKE PLANS again, spring cleaning and decluttering are high on the agenda for many of us. Good home storage has, for many, been a sanity saver over this past year – and for every storage conundrum, we have a woven basket.
Our homes have been working hard over the past twelve months to meet all the additional demands we’ve made on them. Living rooms have become nurseries, classrooms and gyms; our kitchen tables and bedrooms have been transformed into offices from 9 – 5 and cleared away for the evening before being unpacked again the next morning.

Our spaces have also become more cluttered as we have adapted and embraced doing practically *everything* at home. Some of us have accumulated new equipment as we’ve finally found the time to learn to knit or paint or bake during our quiet evenings and weekends; others have welcomed avalanches of hand-me-down books and toys from friends and family as we have adapted to home-schooling our children and entertaining our babies and toddlers indoors throughout the long winter months.

And with the closure of charity shops, we’re having to more mindfully address the things we bought and no longer want or need, by either passing things on, repurposing them - or finding good storage!
