Our Basic Mint Stackable Basket is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 124.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought like 6 of these to store my pants instead of buying a dresser to save money, and im so glad i did! Money saver and looks great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from These little storage bins are great and so affordable. I didn't want to get a large dresser and for my closet so I used these and they hold a lot and work perfect. The only reason I deducted one star is because making sure the holes all align can take some massaging. I would just recommend when at the store making sure they all work stacked before taking home.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I would really have loved these if the the holes lined up with the legs! They aren’t even close to lining up and it takes forever to try to manipulate the hard plastic which doesn’t even work. They would be perfect If it wasn’t for that which is the whole point of getting them because they are supposed to be stackable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Warped and junky If you need storage just pay the extra money and buy something more long term and sturdy. Ours are a little warped so they pop out really easily and are very hard to fit back together. They tip over easily. (Three high) if I lived in the same town as a container store I’d definitely get my money back

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice colorful and good price but not as sturdy I like the fact that it is colorful and very easily accessible as I used them to store my daughter's toys and books. I stacked three on top of each other but I felt it would not withstand my kid pulling on it to stand up so I tied it on the back and side just to give me some safety feel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Toy storage I bought these baskets to better organize my daughter’s toys. It is much easier for her getting a toy than if it were in a big storage bin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Weekly Organizer I bought these to organize my kids clothes for the week. Every Sunday we layout their clothes and place them in the appropriate bin (Mon-Fri) in order to make the weekday mornings move smoother. It is a great way to keep everyone organized and it also gives a great visual of the week ahead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GOOD QUALITY.... mine get's a lot of use. Fast shipping and easy order. Stackable's are great. White is easy to see all the colors I work with and can see all the items.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ok Product, Not Easy To Transfer I bought these bins to house t-shirts for my registration company to dispense to guests as they check in for events. So, when I am done with an event, it would be a product improvement that the bins stack together in a compact manner to transport. I need to have 8 bins, so this is taking up a lot of room in my van when I go to events. If that flaw was fixed, these would get 5 stars from me. The bin capacity is just perfect for the products I store in them. I would also like to see more color options, but I am one that loves bright, bold colors when I organize.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great alone but they don’t stack well. These work great for my kids bigger toys. They are supposed to stack but almost everyone is uneven. I can’t only get 2-3 legs to line up enough with each hole leaving them unsteady when stacked. If you’re looking for something to stack I wouldn’t recommend these. Great alone though!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slightly larger than imagined but good toy sorter! We bought three of these (gray) to sort some toys in our family room. They stacked without too much heartache. I don't think they click together super securely, but our little guy isn't too rough, so I don't see that being a problem. If yours may get tackled or toppled, you might want to secure them some other way (add glue, zip ties, etc.). They aren't as nice looking as the painted wooden toy bins, but they are much cheaper and have a smaller footprint. We aren't committed to always keeping toys in this spot, so these will be easy to move around, as needed. Wish the mint color had been available in store. :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from bought this as a replacement item bought to store potatoes and onions etc. in for a friend...She loved them and so do we...and I suggest putting wheels on the bottom one so that they can be easily moved around.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from They’re okay I bought these online and loved the look of them stacked. The colors are so nice. However, they don’t fit into each other well so if they are stacked they can just pop out easily. I bought them to use in my 2 yr old son’s playroom and if he even leans on them slightly they pop out of place. I still love their look and they are big enough to fit a good amount of his smaller toys so I’m keeping them but I will just be annoyed at having to put them back together all the time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I personally did not like it for my need I wanted to stack them for my daughters room and they were not easy put together in fact I was I able to connect them not sure if I had a defected one or not

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the hassle I purchased these at my local store to help organize my 12 inch rolls of vinly and other Cricut supplies. I am pretty sure I received a set that was defective due to the fact that it was hard to align all the holes/legs without the lower basket not staying connected to the other lower baskets. With the help of one other person and a small amount of elbow grease I was finally able to get all baskets aligned and I could not be happier. The baskets are simple and yet so functional. I plan to get more tomorrow for other organization projects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for storage Love these! Perfect shade of mint. I use it to store all my t-shirts and jeans and such. Stacks easily and securely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for storing grocery bags at bottom of pantry We're using two of these (one large, one smaller) to store both re-usable grocery bags and paper grocery bags (which we re-use for the recycling.) You can shelve the paper bags neatly like books in the basket. Very tidy! They look sharp and keep things off the floor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I needed a cheap and effective storage system and this fits the bill. The baskets are light but deep so I was able to put them in my walk-in closet and organize everything I needed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what they used to be Quote from the site: "The original - the one that started it all. Our most popular and affordable Basic Stack Basket is made exclusively for us to our specifications. It features more plastic than other look-alike baskets, which makes it much stronger. And, our plastic mold is specially designed to reduce plastic flashing which can cause snags if used for clothing storage." This is simply not true anymore. I have the "original" baskets from 8-9 years ago and they are fantastic. I need more for my son's clothes, so I went to the website and was so pleased to find they appeared to still carry "the original." So I drove more than 30 miles to pick up some more. However, the quality has gone downhill. I knew when I got to the store that they just were not the same, but I bought them anyway. Side-by-side, you can see the difference. The newer ones are much thinner, with edges that snag and can cut your skin. They are warped and do not fit together easily. The part of the legs that nests into the holes of the bins below when they stack are less than half the length of what they were on the original. I envision having to re-nest them constantly as my son loads and unloads his clothing. You can also see how much thinner they are and how much less plastic is used on the newer ones (green) than the much sturdier ones of the past (black). I'm pretty disappointed that these are touted as the original when they are clearly a lesser product. They are a dollar or so less per basket, but less than half of the value. I have always been pleased with the quality of products from The Container Store, but this one is a real miss.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the shower, too! We have a long shower (which fills a former tub space) and I put a stack of three baskets at one end. It holds all the hair products, razors, shaving cream, etc., etc., for the whole family! And also provides space for hanging used washcloths, on the edge of the basket front. Much cheaper than most shower towers, and I can replace my tower of baskets (recycling the used ones) when I wish. Also, much more space! I don't like the baskets provided with most shower towers, because they aren't deep enough to keep tall shampoo bottles upright.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Basic Stackables I love these because they are sturdy yet light weight and are snag free as I store my Silk spinning fibers in them! I bought every color!! they stack marvelous!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Baskets I bought two of these to use in my pantry to keep things organized. I'm using one for snacks and the other for potatoes. They are very sturdy. Pleased with my purchase!
Date published: 2016-09-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great organization tool! These were a bit larger than what I expected so I was unable to use them beneath my bathroom cabinet as intended. But have found use for them in my kitchen pantry. Very sturdy. Holds 10 lb sack of potatoes effortlessly. Also great for keeping snacks all together. I did however purchase the mini baskets that I was able to use under the bathroom sink so it worked out well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from WORK WELL I really like these stackable bins. I like the colors, the sturdiness and the size. However - they were very difficult to stack. I put one leg in , the other leg would pop out, and so on. I never thought I would get them stacked - I bought 4 of them.
Date published: 2015-06-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Kitchen I bought 2 of these to stack on top of each other in a corner on top of my kitchen counter. It's great because I can put all my onions, garlic, ginger, potatoes in these and all within reach whenever I need these items! And it keeps all these items ventilated too!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for These baskets are inexpensive and you get what you pay for. They are difficult to transport because they do not stack so they take up a lot of room. They are difficult to clip together yet they come apart easily. For the money, they serve their purpose and the colors are nice. You get what you pay for.

Do you have a set of wheels that fit these?

I have a stack of these that I use for closet storage. From time to time I need to move them. This would much easier if the stack was on wheels. Does Container Store have these?

Would you consider making lids for these?

I use these stacked in my pantry. It would be incredibly helpful if you also sold a solid top that fits over the opening of the top basket, so I had a flat surface there.
Asked by: Meggles
At this time, there are no plans to add a lid/top as an option for Our Basic Stackable Basket.

Do these baskets nest into each other when not in use?

Asked by: gfaz
The baskets cannot be nested together, they can be stacked on top of one another using the legs and the holes at the top of the basket as shown in the product pictures
