Clear Handled Storage Baskets
These are Wonderful
I love these little baskets. The handles are perfect for getting them down from a high shelf. You can stack them when they are not in use, but around here- they're always in use!

Versatile and a Great Price
The baskets are so durable and lightweight! We have two small puppies with lots of squeaky toys. They bite the handle and drag the basket around, then flip it and dive into their toys. This has been going on for months and the basket still looks great. In the kitchen, I use one to store all of my liquid flavoring extracts (vanilla, almond, lemon, etc.) . The see through plastic and handle make it easy to pull out of the cabinet and not lose any of the jars. I plan on purchasing more of these baskets and I can see storage uses for make-up and first aid items in the bath, vitamins and envelopes of gravy mixes in the kitchen, gloves and mittens, belts and leather accessories in the closets. How often can you say that a product is both economical and useful throughout the house?

Storage Problem Solved!!!
I have been looking for containers, holders, something to help me organize our large pantry. My previous method of organization was one shelf was for cooking items, one shelf was for baking items, one item was for pots and pans. Sounds good, right? At least it started out that way. As time progressed on, my "organization" really was not that organized.
After receiving the catalog/flier in the mail from the Container Store, I flipped through it, and saw all the wonderful organizational ideas! I was in heaven! I drove over to the Container Store the very next weekend, and I am so glad that I did!
I found these clear handled storage baskets, both the large and small. They were priced at a price I just couldn't (and didn't) pass up! I liked the idea that they were clear, so I could easily see what was inside the basket. They were also tall enough to hold taller items, but no too tall either. The one thing that I really liked about them was "the handle!" I really hadn't thought about having a handle on the containers that I bought to organize our pantry. WOW! Having a handle on them, which was large enough for anyone to use, but not too large either, was a GREAT idea! All I have to do, is reach for the handle and very easily pull the container off of the shelf! With the handle, you are not juggling the item, trying to balance it with both hands, so it doesn't tip over, all over your head! (sound familiar!) What a novel concept! Handles!! Go Figure!!!
If you are looking for something to help you organize your pantry, or linen closet - these would be GREAT to organize washcloths, or shampoos, or laundry items..... WAIT!!! I'm going back to the Container Store to get MORE!!! I have lots more organizing to do!

Love these for the kitchen and bathroom
One for shampoos and hair products; one for lotions; one for first aid. One in the kitchen for bags of nuts and pastas; another for those packs of soup and sauce mix as well as pouches of tuna and salmon. Endless uses for organizing those cupboards. Great for spring housecleaning!
