1| The Classic Storage Ottoman


There are too many cute storage ottomans to list here, but we’ll just give you our favorite. This option from Target is sleek, affordable, and easy to match with any decor. Push a few of them together to create a large bench or ottoman cluster!

2| Cute Cube Organizer & Storage Bins


Another Target storage staple is their storage cubes. They’re painless to assemble, simple to customize, and stand up to wear and tear.

3| Beautiful Baskets


Sorry, we’re just in love with Target. They have tons of on-trend storage baskets in all shapes (animals!) and colors (lime, peach, burgundy!). These baskets are so pretty that they are a statement decor piece all on their own.
