Finding storage solutions for the home that not only help you declutter but also look good doing it takes some digging. It’s not impossible, though; we’ve managed to find collapsible storage crates that are easy on the eyes, for example, and even magnetic fridge organizers that won’t detract from your interior decor style. As far as bins and baskets go, your best bet for buying something chic is to seek out woven pieces, specifically anything made of cane, rattan, or another natural material. You can find plenty of pieces like this at retailers like Pottery Barn and Serena & Lily, but they’ll cost you a good chunk of change. One store we were delighted to discover has tons of woven baskets — all for $50 or less — is T.J. Maxx.

So many of the available options look way more expensive than they are, and you can use them in pretty much every room of your apartment. Below, you’ll find 10 of our favorites, from small bins for under $10 to four-piece sets that’ll corral clutter in the kids’ room, closet, or home office.

This woven basket instantly caught our eye because of its unique triangular weave pattern. Imagine how effectively it could conceal an unsightly flower pot or dirty laundry. It doesn’t have handles, but the openings near the top allow you to easily transport it between rooms.

If you host overnight visitors, this oval number would make a great hospitality basket to put in the guest bedroom or bathroom. Fill it with extra towels and washcloths, as well as shower products so your guests never run out. We also love the basket’s two-tone design.

For a more structured storage bin, look no further than this cane basket, crafted with a light wood frame and matching panels. We recommend it for high-traffic areas, like the family room, or perhaps you want to snag a few to use as bins inside storage cubbies.

How convenient is this set of four bamboo baskets? You could use the largest ones as hampers to separate light and dark clothes and use the smaller ones to hold anything from pet toys to crafting supplies. The matching baskets will also help create a cohesive aesthetic among all of your rooms.

Whether you're looking to upgrade your guest bathroom or find a home for your surplus of cosmetics, this jute and hyacinth basket is an affordable and useful buy. It offers plenty of space for extra towels, toilet paper, candles, and toiletries. We could also see it as a great place to stack mail on your entryway table.

This boho-chic basket reminds us of something you could find at Serena & Lily for double the price. Its geometric yarn pattern up top sets it apart from your basic seagrass basket, and its wide design makes the basket a great storage spot for out-of-season accessories, like scarves, hats, or even sweaters.

Some people don't like the natural wicker look, and that's okay! This gray woven option is a perfect alternative. Ideal for front entryway use, the durable basket features two handles for easy carrying and a wide opening, so you can fit anything from yoga mats to dog-walking accessories inside.

What's black and brown and stylish all over? This gorgeous lidded basket, of course! Made of rattan from top to bottom, the basket is as sturdy as it is beautiful. The matching lid conceals umbrellas, workout gear, and other contents, and the black stripes make it a welcome departure from your run-of-the-mill wicker basket.

If your boring fruit basket is in need of an upgrade, try this stunning woven tray instead. You could place it on the counter, but we have a feeling you’ll want to display it on the coffee table for all to see. The tray’s deep construction allows you to fit a good number of items inside, whether we’re talking oranges or magazines.

This seagrass basket set would work wonders in the closet, specifically if you need extra storage for sweaters, blankets, and other hefty pieces. They look so much nicer than plastic bins, and best of all, the bins fold flat when not in use!
