We use lightweight plastic baskets from the Container Store for all our overhead storage. They're especially helpful for clothing stored over the bed area. It's a lot easier for to pull out three baskets (instead of the entire contents individually) and pick and choose what you need while your spouse is still sipping coffee next to you.

We use all sorts of bins and baskets to hold stuff in the overhead cabinets, especially over the dinette. They are great for not holding things together, but to pull out to find something in them, as opposed to rummaging through the cabinets. Our larger clothes, and our linens, are about the only thing not in bins.

We use 3 Sterilite bins in the area over the sink and stove. 1 Bin for coffee making "stuff," 1 for plates & bowls & 1 for mugs & glasses. They are down and on the bed as we do dishes together, but then everything has it's place when we are done. The pots & pans go in the bin under the bed. We took off the front wheels and place our thermos in front of the bin in "the gap" to keep the bin from moving into the floor when traveling over rough roads!

Thanks for the comments. I like the idea of baskets not only on the shelf above the dinette, but above the kitchen as well. Much appreciated.

We have almost the whole Escape full of bins and baskets and zip locks. I remember one guy who said that he put virtually everything in zip locks because that way much more can be fit in and also kept protected.
