I bought one of these for myself just to hold some of the miscellaneous cards, etc. on my fridge. My kids spied it, and now they are clamoring for one of their own. So now I have to buy at least 3 more! The magnet is strong, which means it stays nicely in place.

I ordered these baskets for the magnetic white board in my classroom. I wanted them to hold dry erase markers and notepaper. The magnet is not strong enough. If I put more than two markers in the basket it slides down to the bottom of the board!! I have added some magnetic strip tape...hopefully that will help!

Best Purchase Ever Needed a magnetic container to hold eraser and markers for our white boards at work and this was perfect. When I opened the package I was excited to see that the item description was perfect. Our eraser and markers fit into this perfectly. I am so pleased with this purchase. Dare I say "perfect" again? Yes!! June 23, 2014
Love these! I love these little baskets. I use them in several different sizes on a large magnetic chalkboard in my office. I use them for chalk, car keys, and office supplies I want to keep handy. They are just right! June 21, 2014
Great! Exactly what I was looking for to hold some of my makeup items. It has a very strong magnet that allows me to totally fill the bin without it falling off. May 4, 2014
Awesome for my need I used a couple of these on the side of my fridge for coupons, a small pad of paper and other small incidentals. I only wish the magnet would have been a little stronger on the bigger ones as it would like to slide down the side of the fridge but I found a solution ;) May 2, 2014
Awesome product! This product is great for getting things off of your work space. I used them for my desk wall unit to have more surface space. I also love the mobility of if since you can just pull down the mesh bin and take it with you if you working in another area that where it's being stored. April 7, 2014
Little things make a huge difference I am scaling down to a smaller home, and by chance stumbled on these in a bricks-and-mortar store. Probably, if I had just seen them online I wouldn't have bought them. All I can say is they are fantastic! I had different pencil holders around the house, sloppy and still disorganized. Plus, I hadn't realized this can be used with the Elfa desk system as long as you buy this lightweight attachment that goes on between the back supports. You literally just clip it in. I am not getting into the horror story of a liquid that went into my daughter's laptop because of a crowded work area. These things cleaned up her desk and my house. Yes, I got a new stainless steel fridge, and I am not one to like to put things on it, but as it was, I had the little magnet clip things before I stored on it with my grocery list, etc. These not only look handsome and well-made, they look more than fine on the fridge. I put a few different sizes on my fridge. The best part is how all the pencils and pens aren't scattered around. I even put a small one on the side of the fridge on the counter to store my husband's key's, etc. He is always putting his stuff all over the place and searching for them. This way, it is near his coffee machine in the morning. The side of my stainless fridge isn't as magnetic, so it need the counter support. All his stash is in there: wallet, keys, Nexus 7 2nd generation, etc. All the sizes have their purpose. I used the smallest one to hold up the calendar on the fridge with all his little scraps of info he leaves around (we know the type with heaps of piles of scribbled notes) in that little container and it is just enough to hold up the calendar. As I said, we are downsizing, but honestly, I would rather use up fridge space than using my corkboard or wall space with a nail. The whole thing is not attractive, in my opinion. Stainless on stainless looks sleek and not cluttered. It probably wouldn't be as attractive on a colored fridge. Anyone considering the Elfa desk system should buy this for sure. March 31, 2014
Organize your life I bought this item to hang inside a metal file drawer. My pens, mini stapler, etc. keep falling underneath the file folders and then I have to hunt for them. Not anymore though. I put this inside the drawer in the front so these items are always easily accessable. Now I need to find one for a plastic file box. March 23, 2014
Very convenient I have metal kitchen cabinets (ugh) and these bins are helpful to but on the inside. For example, I put my coffee filters in one so they will be easy to grab in the morning. Many uses! February 13, 2014
magnetic mesh bins These are the best things I have come across! Stick them on the side of fridge and they hold my bills, flyers and pens and pencils! They are perfect storage! Love them! February 3, 2014
Perfect for dry erase markers and erase We are using these in a hospital to hold dry erase markers and eraser for patient communication boards. They are the perfect size. Good quality sturdy construction, magnets are strong enough. December 19, 2013
Perfect for what I needed The magnets on this container are very strong. They have held up to everything I've thrown in there. Love that I can see from the side what's in there. I've gotten some great ideas for other uses of the various sizes by reading the other reviews. Thanks for reviewing everyone! October 8, 2013
Excellent for medicine cabinet I purchased these for my medicine cabinet. The cabinet came with no shelves thanks to the over zealous previous tenant. These are great for storing all the small stuff such as contact holders, tweezers and so on. I had already purchased Double Acrylic Spice Rack to hold the large items and act as shelves in the cabinet. July 18, 2013
Very strong magnets that hold well even when the product is full of things. April 9, 2013
magnetic bins have me hooked! The magnetic bins I purchased are the perfect solution to get clutter under control and off the counter. The construction is both durable and light, while the magnets are very strong and well secured. The sleek lines and industrial feel also help them to blend right in! April 1, 2013
worth it using with mesh super sorter, 2 trays that attach below, and this attached to side, makes everything look clean and organized! March 24, 2013
Holds Everything I am a guitarist and was looking for something near my desk to hold my picks and other needed items. I purchased a magnetic strip and now I have all my stuff hanging on the wall nearby. Sweet! March 24, 2013
Great product I use these on my fridge to hold spice bottles, and they have a good strong hold. I do wish they were longer, but they are technically an office supply, so I can't complain. Plus, I didn't have to get one of the magnetic spice racks that requires you to transfer your spices into their holders - much more convenient! March 18, 2013
Loved These Great size. Stay put. Strong Magnet. Easy to move around. March 18, 2013
Not just for the office I actually don't use these in my office. I use them in my bathroom. I have a mesh CD box with my hair products on my counter and I have two of these stuck to the side. They hold my make up brushes. It keeps them handy and when I clean my brushes, they are easily dried in these bins. March 18, 2013
Love it it's fantastic inside the looker. zero second to install ! March 5, 2013
Magnetic Baskets Very Popular in my Workplace One of my job responsibilities is ordering office supplies for an aerospace repair facility. I was asked to find some "small magnetic baskets" that would be used to store tags and markers for different work areas. I was told these baskets work perfectly, that they attach very securely to our metal surfaces and they're just the right size for the small items we need to place at point-of-use. After my initial order of 5 baskets, I've placed additional orders for 10 and 12 baskets. I will be ordering even more, after the planners and supervisors determine other places these baskets should be placed. July 12, 2012
Love it! I bought one of these for keeping small notepads in. I like that the bin is narrow enough so that the papers stay upright. I haven't tried sticking this to the fridge or something free standing. Mine actually sits on the counter, but is attached magnetically to a similiar mesh bin that I keep file folders in. It helps free up some real estate on my countertop! April 29, 2012
Silver Magnetic Mesh Bins I purchased these bins, and they are great for school lockers. April 27, 2012
Extremely useful I have purchased several of these items and have found them to be exceptionally useful in storing and organizing various items March 27, 2012
Good for coraling items on refrigerator! Seems like an office-type thing, but works great on the fridge for pens/pencils, twist ties etc. Can't hold very heavy things, but works great! March 19, 2012
Silver Bins Perfect for turning the side of my fridge into a spice rack. Picked up purchase at local Container Store without a hitch. January 10, 2012
Good idea Thought these to be much more attractive than the gazillion things attached to my fridge. Better organized now. Although the magnets could be a bit stronger. If you put a bunch of stuff in them, they list to one side or another as many fridges are not perfectly flat across the front. July 21, 2011
Great for student apartment These magnetic holders are perfect for keeping things handy in the kitchen, especially in small student apartments with minimal cabinet and drawer space. February 15, 2011
Perfect for my draweR I got this to put in my top drawer of my desk since it is made of the metal three drawer file cabinet from container store. It is perfect because it doesn't slide around and the magnet is super strong. February 15, 2011
Just the thing for loose pens and pencils Perfect to keep all my writing utensils organized next to my desk. February 15, 2011
