Make Less Look Like More

About a month ago I bought some basket filler "stuff" at the dollar tree.
I put it in a basket on top of the toilet in our main bathroom.

Two bags of this stuff didn't quite fill 'er up enough.

Take out all the filler "stuff", place three plastic grocery bags on the bottom of the basket, and then put the filler "stuff" back in.

Just another way to reuse plastic bags
a great decorating solution to a fuller looking basket.

Have a Happy Wednesday!

Plastic bags sure can come in handy. Great idea, thanks for sharinng. Not sure if I would have come up with that one on my own. Lucky for me I like to stop by and see what your up to! LOL

Great minds think alike- I use newspaper. You're a very clever woman.

I've used pinecones or the "cones" that fall off Magnolia trees to fluff up stuff before and give it height. Even shredded paper from the paper shredder works! :) - Karen

How very frugal of you! I would have run out and bought more stuff to put in the basket and ended up spending more money. Love it!
