If there’s one thing I’ve learned about shopping for organizing gems in my time as a Cleaning & Organizing Editor, it’s that Five Below should not be overlooked. With (almost) everything in the store around or under $5, it’s a no-brainer to stock up on their smart storage solutions for all over the house — and trust me, there are plenty. And just in time for Easter, the shop has a brand-new, festive organizer you’ll want to use year-round. 

Available in both light pink and baby blue, Five Below’s Metal Wire Easter Basket is the perfect vessel for little ones to collect their eggs and sweet treats during the candy hunt at the end of the month, or for an Easter centerpiece if you fill it with dyed eggs, flowers, and stuffed bunnies. At 10.75 inches by 6 inches, it’s a great size for any shelf, table, or for fitting into your pantry or closet. Plus, the geometric metal lines are a chic mix of playful and functional, no matter how you use it!

Of course, the real fun starts after Easter’s over. Then, you can use the wire basket to fill with hand towels, craft supplies, stuffed animals and toys, produce, laundry supplies, or anything else that’ll fit in it. The handle moves so you can easily carry it from place to place (read: easy access!), or you can flip it towards the back so it just looks like a simple metal wire basket. The best part of this playful find? It’s perfect for spring but works to add a pop of color in any space throughout the year.

You can shop the baskets at your local Five Below, order them for pick-up, or get them shipped directly to your home, depending on where you live. While you’re there, you might want to snag this adorable “vintage” ceramic strawberry planter, too! If you’re on the lookout for budget-friendly spring decor, Target has this $5 woven bunny basket, and these $15 felt carrot or bunny garlands. Whichever ones you choose, they won’t last long — so hop to it!
