White elfa Drawers
The perfect solution
My kitchen pantry has very bowed shelves. I propped them all up with a center post to make them straight, but that made it difficult to reach into the back of the shelves. The elfa drawers on their tracks made it possible to get maximum use and keep things neat. I used a variety of height bins and have been extremely pleased at how easy they were to install.

Shoe Storage breakthrough
I've "invested" in elfa storage for over 25 years, from when it was just new to The Container Store. Back then, the annual sale was 40% off - those were the days!
Over the years it has paid dividends! I've moved several times and each time I was able to reconfigure my elfa to my new digs - whether in a closet pantry or under sinks. And they function just as well now as they did then!
So, imagine my surprise after all that time in finding a new way to use the 1-deep drawers - for shoes. It was by accident, because the old sliding shoe racks are not longer available and I wanted to create a nice rack for my husband, but not give up any of my own - of course.
What to do? Well I bought the new 1-deep drawers and low and behold I was able to put two of those in the same place as one of the old ones. Then I used the old racks to create a rack for my husband (already had the sides).
Result, double the shoe storage for me, new storage for him. He's delighted with his new show rack, but horrified that I now have more room for lots of new shoes - ha ha!
Thanks again, elfa, you're the greatest!
PS I have small feet so I'm able to stack shoes all facing the same way toe to heel. You may need to put three pair one way and a pair or two perpendicular.

Mess Restored to Order!
I used to have a terrible time storing all of my plastic containers then I discovered elfa drawers! They are easy to install and really restore order to a chaotic mess! I have them in my kitchen and in my bathroom cabinets! They are great! I highly recommend them!

I love these baskets I have them on every shelf in our master closet. I have a tag for each basket and my husband never has to ask where anything is or where it goes. They arrived in great shape and quickly. Great item to keep any closet organized.
