  1. I know this is totally random, but where did you get your blue laundry baskets from?

  2. Hi Katie,

    I have been racking my brain trying to remember where I found the baskets. I am pretty sure we have had them for at least 4 years, but I know I have seen similar ones around. Because I don't shop many places, my best guess is that I found them at Target - maybe in the back-to-school (or off-to-college) section one year.

    Sorry I couldn't be of more help!

  3. blue laundry baskets - yeah)) I like them too))))
