Small Mesa Bin
Not so good-accuracy?
Although nice, the basket is NOT the measurement that The Container Store says it is....it is not ACCURATE. I live where there is no Container Store.....so shipping them back is NOT worth the money. The measurement the Container Store gives is:
13 1/2 inches by 8 3/4 by 5 1/8 the TRUTH on ALL 4 baskets is the following :13 7/16 by 8 1/2by not once over 5 inches (most were 4 7/8. This may seem minor to some BUT I bought them for paperwork and they do not hold a 8.5 by 11 sheet of paper without curling the edges.... Accuracy in all thingswhen ordering a shipment is needed.

I bought a slew of these (and also the large Mesa Bin) to use in my pantry. They are great for organizing stuff like coffee pods and various tea flavors. Easy to pull out for others to choose their favorites. I've had them for over a year and they are still perfect.

great, but description had false measurements
We measured our space and found the perfect bins to use...but when I brought them home they were different measurements than described on website. We needed something with a depth as close to 9" as possible. It said 8.75", but it was actually less than 8.25" (which doesn't even fit a piece of paper flat!)
So that was bad. But the bin is cool and seems very sturdy.
