Translucent Magnetic Magazine Basket
Very strong magnets
This magazine holder has very strong magnets allowing you to fill it with lots of magazines without worrying it will fall off.

The left side of my fridge is so happy!
Loose papers make me crazy. I am an avid cook and have lots of recipes floating around. I set up a template and logged in each recipe and laminated the full size sheet. But where to put them?
Needed to be away from cats, kids and counters. This fab product keeps them within reach. Strong magnets assure that even when fridge door slammed, it does not budge.

I am in the process of recreating my home office (after a house fire). I bought four (three at the store, one by mail) of these to sort papers (home, work, church, fun). Hanging them by their magnets was not practical for me, so I put sticky strips on the magnets and stuck them to the side of a book case. They are sturdy and hold a lot. Because they are translucent, they visually fade gracefully into the background. I have already recommended them to a friend.

You Get What You Pay For
This basket is expensive, yes. I know that for many, the cost is prohibitively high.
That being said, I own 7 of them and am planning to buy 3 more the next time I'm at the Container Store. You truly do get what you pay for. The bins are incredibly sturdy and hold a ridiculously heavy load on a white board, metal front door, or refrigerator (I haven't tried any other surfaces yet, but I'm 100% certain that they will work well on any magnetic surface). The magnets are super-heavy-duty, which allows each basket to be stuffed full of magazines and still stay up.
I use one at my house for our magazines and 6 in my classroom on my white board as turn-in boxes for each of my 6 classes. The rugged plastic and heavy duty magnets have held up well with both junior high and high school students.
Also, if you ever need to hang them from a non-magnetic wall, the magnets come off to reveal 4 keyhole-style hanging points.
Bottom line: I'd buy them again. They do what they are supposed to do better than any other product I've found.
