Turn empty gift baskets into stylish household organizers. (Similar receptacles are sold at floral shops and crafts stores if you need to supplement your supply.) Unify the mismatched containers by coating them with a single color of latex paint; dry overnight. Then place the baskets on a hallway console table or a desk, filling them with envelopes, stationery, and other supplies. Alternatively, use a set to keep your bathroom or kitchen counter clean and tidy.
