Plastic Grid Basket
A file system that works for me!
I have a terrible time getting my filing done. My accountant recommended that I try a basket system on shelves. We put the Elfa system in our office and I bought these baskets to use for the files. They are priced so that I could buy enough of them without breaking the bank. I bought wood rectangles at the craft store and painted them with chalk board paint for labels. I love how they look with the labels, they are the perfect size and the price is right! I plan on buying more to put on another shelf for more file storage.

Best and cheapest organizer ever!
I have about 3 dozen of these baskets. They are in the pantry to keep like food groups together (i.e., ethnic seasoning packets), in the closet to hold sox, in the kids' rooms to hold small supplies and gaming controls, in the kids bathrooms to hold "personal" grooming items, in the garage for extension cords, in the laundry room for lightbulbs, in the refrigerator to store odd jars of spices and rubs, in the bathroom and kitchen to gather cleaning bottles, under the kitchen sink to hold tea towels, on the kitchen counter to gather up odds and ends so everyone can return their scattered items to the proper place, in my home office to hold mail, also in the office to hold small supplies. I have a couple in my family room to hold various controls for the Wii and TV, to hold playing cards and score pads. Some boxes are lined, others are used exactly as they are. They hold small craft supplies and sewing items. If there is anything else I can use them for I will.

Just like the item description states, this product can be used in many ways. I used one in a hall closet to store toilet paper and another to store candles of different sizes. They have an attractive and simple design and are so affordable! My only concern is that they are not really sturdy. For instance the one I used to store candles, would require me to use both hands to carry the basket. They are ideal for lightweight items.
