I love these old antique crocks, which can be had for a song at flea markets, antique shops, and even thrift stores. And here's a smart way to put one of these substantial crocks to use: Stash your kitchen linens!

This tip comes from designer Sarah Richardson. She uses a heavy crock in her farmhouse kitchen to hold the dirty linens and towels until they can go in the wash.

But why limit it to dirty laundry? A crock like this would make cute, rustic storage for clean linens and napkins too.
