Linen Handbag Storage Bin
I'm thrilled with this box!
Finally a solution to the clutter on the top shelf of my closet. It always looked so messy with all my out of season handbags. But now, the shelf looks so beautiful and neat. A pleasure to walk in there!

I bought the purse holder (along with the matching bins) to organize a baby armoire and changing table.
The purse holders (purchased 3) will go under the changing table.
I love how sturdy they are and the measurements were perfect for my need. One bin will hold diapers, one small blankets and the last one I got a bit creative. I wanted a tidy way to hold all products and grooming essentials for a baby, but I didn't want to spill diaper cream or lotion in my nice clean bin. I ordered 9 of the "Tall Smart Store Inserts in White" from Container Store and they fit neatly into the purse holder. Now baby products are organized and should they spill I only have to rinse out the insert!
If I have another baby the linen color will match no matter the gender or I can use it anywhere else in my home and it will match.

Great for big bags
I recently bought two of these for my closet and I love the linen look. Ultra classy. I found my larger purses held up in it beautifully but I am still in search of a solution for my smaller purses since some are even to small to be seen from the lowered side of the bin, especially when on a shelf.

Great solution for larger handbags!
I have many handbags, and have a decent elfa system maximizing my closet space, but still, I needed something to organize my handbags on my shelves, specifically. Bins work well but you can't see into them from below, same with other lidded boxes. Using drop front shoe boxes wouldn't work for me because a lot of my bags are on the larger size, and even the men's size wouldn't accommodate many of my bags...I thought these were pricey and wouldn't make a ton of difference, but decided to try. Am I glad I did! First, I can see into what's there, and second, the open concept means even my larger and bulkier bags have a place inside. I can generally fit 3 bulkier bags standing upright per unit, and bags are no longer falling on top of each other. It is easy for me to pull down the unit when I want to grab one of my bags and then slide it back onto the shelf. The best part is that everything seems streamlined now. Sure, I can't buy them for my whole collection, but the four I have make a huge difference for bags that would have otherwise fallen or tipped over. In between unit pairs I store my most structured bags that will stay upright on their own. It all looks great!
