Like I have said before, I hate clutter. Since you can’t hide everything away inside the cabinet, something decorative yet highly functional is always needed in the home.
I’m a fan of baskets especially wicker ones. I bought mine from different stores like Rustan’s/Crossing’s, Landmark, SM Department Store, Kultura Filipino and Dapitan Arcade. The one’s from Dapitan Arcade were cheap (P100 for a 15″x8″10″ one) but don’t expect them to be perfect. Most of the baskets there are factory over runs. Wicker baskets from malls, however, range from P300-P1000 depending on the size. If you have time, you can also check out Quiapo Ilalim (stores under the Quiapo bridge) for better quality baskets and other native handicrafts.
Since I’m due to give birth anytime, I can’t go out window shopping anymore (which I really miss)… So, I shopped the web for some affordable and decorative items ways to organize your home. If only we have IKEA here (as cheap as US Ikea), our lives would be so much easier…
