When it comes to storage, we typically all reach for
  1. Your standard wicker basket 
  2. A Large Plastic Gallon Tote 
  3. An Old Cardboard Box
Yet I think finding cute affordable storage pieces that move beyond blah basics is key to incorporating storage into your decor.  Here are eight great affordable options!  Enjoy!

File all your subscriptions in style with these blue patterned magazine holders from Ikea and you get a four pack for $2.99! 

Next up - how about an adorable clothes hamper your kids will LOVE to put their clothes in.  How cute is this?  
Wicker Frog Hamper - Home Decorators Outlet - $39.00

Target has a whole line of vintage painted milk crates.  I am sure you could find something similar at a flea market or antique store but these might save you some hunting through piles of stuff! 
Apple Print Milk Crate - Target - $34.99

What about this set of storage totes? Extremely practical and perfect for the back of the car or for pre-packed pool/sports/playdate totes!  And you can't beat the price for three!
Set of Three Storage Totes - Walmart - $10.88

Garage storage never looked so ... well appropriate! These corrugate cardboard boxes feature a cute design and are made from 90% recycled paper.
Set of 2 Habol Boxes - Ikea - $2.99

I don't know if I can express to you how much I love the Liberty of London Pattered Storage pieces from Target.  Here are two great options.  These prints are fabulous! 
Floral Print Media Box - Target - $6.99

And last but not least - here is one more adorable set from Ikea!  The stripes seem so summery!
Set of Three Kajsa Boxes - Ikea - $16.99

So there we go - eight cute storage options!  Which one is your favorite?  Do you try to incorporate storage into your decor?  I wanna know!  I will be posting some additional finds over on my Facebook Page later today so be sure to hop over and check it out!

These are all smashing! Looks like a trip to Target is on my to do list. (I'd love to include Ikea but the closest one is 2 hours away!)

I totally love the frog hamper too. trying to figure out how to work that into my decor!

I want that frog!!! Isn't that adorable(I'd probably spray paint it to match my youngest's room). I have some longaberger baskets and I refuse to put them out unless they are working. Great ideas, so glad I found your blog!
