Horizon Rectangular Crunch Can by UmbraÂ®
A better laundry basket
We purchased this laundry basket in all four colors. Each member of our family is assigned their own color. We started a new system of folding the laundry and placing it into each persons basket. Then the kids can take their own basket to their room and put their clothes away. Breaking it up by load makes the task manageable. Most importantly, because these baskets fold down, they are easy to store on the floor of our linen closet. Having a traditional laundry basket for every member of the house would required a lot of space to store when not in use. These are easy, functional, and compact, even my 7 year old son can fold them and put them away. The handle also makes it easy for the children to carry, even on the steps. Now we have not more piles of clean laundry waiting to be put away.
Thank you Container store for a clever solution to taming our laundry!

Helpful Every Day!
I use these containers to carry things from the first floor to my basement because using the handles let's me still have a hand available to hold the railing. They are a great size for my purpose. They can be used to carry laundry downstairs and their rectangular shape makes them perfect for carrying folded laundry back upstairs. I like products that allow me to be more independent.

They are so sturdy and carry the things I need them to perfectly. And then they smoosh down flat for storage!

Wonderful toy storage!
I purchased this item to use as toy storage for my living area. I wanted to stow the toys away in something that fit in with my beachy theme and the stripes do the trick. I love that I can carry it around by the handles when cleaning up in the evening and that during the day the sides stay up so my daughter can easily pull out what she wants to play with.
