I know what you’re thinking…where are you going to get a lobster trap and how in the world are you going to organize with it? Kettle Cove Enterprises makes a bike basket made of the same materials used in lobster traps. These baskets are made from either brand new or repurposed lobster trap components.
These baskets attach to the back of your bike and hold items securely. That’s how you’re SUPPOSED to use it. However, as an organizer, I decided to see what I could organize with it. Here’s what I came up with.
Check out how nicely books fit into this bin. I love keeping a bin of books I’m waiting to read, so this is a perfect option to separate those books and keep them all in one place.
Want a cute way to store all of those shoes by the door? This bin does the trick! Since it’s made or durable materials, it’s easily cleaned if it gets muddy or sandy.
If you didn’t think you could use this bin in the bathroom, you’re wrong. I love rolling towels and tucking them in. You could even keep this by the door to store beach towels during the summer months or to store workout towels.
This might be my favorite use of the bin. I usually have dog toys EVERYWHERE! While I can’t keep them put away ALL the time, but when I do pick them up, this is a great way to store them to keep the floor clean. My dogs can even help themselves when they want.
Thank you to Kettle Cover Enterprises for sending me this basket to get creative with!
