Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get a few, you won't regret it! Love that these are tall (maximize space w small footprint), have handles, and are nestable! I live in a tiny studio, so everything I have needs to be multifunctional. They have a nice, clean look to them (somehow helps psychologically while tidying up...), and are a great medium-large size. They're super affordable, so go ahead and get a few. When you're done using them, they nest and take up the same space of one. Also, they're plastic, so they're easy to clean. I bought them originally to use while organizing, but they've come in handy for so much more: they're awesome for hauling things back and forth to the car, sorting laundry, reorganizing things in cabinets, throwing stuff away when purging from the home, etc. Even use them while packing for trips - just toss things in as you think of them, then lay them out when loading up your suitcase! FYI: 3 of these fit perfectly on a shelf of the larger origami foldable shelf (the one w 4 shelves).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice but handles hurt I needed an upright basket with handles because I needed one hand free while bringing laundry up and down stairs. The basket look nice, but the handles are oval in the wrong direction where they cut into your hand (when the handles are flat, it lays better, but too skinny and hurts). There are not many options of an upright basket that hold their shape so even thought I can only carry this for a short amount of time before it starts to hurt I still found it better than nothing. I also like that it was made in Japan instead of China. Hopefully if they update it, they make the handles rounder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy dandy! I am using this basket to hold the bits and pieces of my Sebo vacuum so I can easily take the parts to my second floor and vice versa. It holds a lot so I just toss in the things I need for cleaning, and off I go!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Farmlifer I needed 2 laundry hampers to sit side by side in a narrow but long area. My old ones were tired and the sides were braking. These 2 are attractive from any angle, sit well were I have them. Hold enough items for a full load, but can be piled for a large load which my Washer /Dryer is good at handeling. I find it easier to lift the the items out of this style with the handles as they add strength to the sides of the hamper. I can see that I could easily have a someone move one near the machines if I wanted. I am happy with these items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful I use several of these baskets around the house for laundry, toys, etc. I like that they are tall, have handles and take up less floor space than a traditional laundry type basket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best purchase ever love this product. handles are soft and move easily. holds enough. the whole thing is sized well for holding while walking down a flight of stairs-- and the cellar stairs in my house are awful- small and twisty. I needed a laundry basket that would make going down my cellar stairs with laundry safer and this is it. I bought 6, I may buy more. Also, the whole process was great. The web site was easy to use, the baskets arrived quickly----AND THEY WERE PACKED WELL SO THEY DIDN'T GET BROKEN AND THEY WERE CLEAN. I had expected to have to wash them but they were completely clean. No dust or pieces of plastic or cardboard. I love TCS. Don't waste gas driving all around looking for a well designed laundry basket. Just buy this one. oh- the best thing is that there are no sharp parts that would snag and ruin your clothes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great basket This is a well made, light, attractive and functional basket. Everything is rounded and smooth so it doesn't snag anything, the size is perfect - when its full I have a good medium load to wash. Vertical height saves floor space and handles make it easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Multi Use This basket was a smart buy. It works well as a laundry tote, taking clothes up and down stairs with ease. It also is a nice size for picking up toys in the play room and storing them until next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Subtle and modern I purchased two of these to go under the overhang of my kitchen countertop -- one for recycling, another for dirty kitchen towels. What do I like so much about these? (1) Aesthetically-pleasing: I like that these looked so good. I didn't think that the little cutout square shape along the sides of the basket would make such a difference (and hence the "Modern Feel Basket" name) but it does! There is another white basket in TCS that has linear cutouts, and I have to say that I liked this MUCH better. Also, I like the soft, frosted-white color -- it makes me feel like it won't turn yellow / grey as it ages, or show any scratches. (2) Upright: I like the upright shape for my purposes, as it allows me to have a space for the two kitchen uses I mentioned. (3) Well-made: I like that the plastic doesn't feel too cheap or too heavy. The handles might feel "stiff" to some, but in hindsight I think it's a brilliant design because that means that they won't collapse on me when I have to set it down for a moment. Many might think that it's not worth spending more than $5 for a laundry basket, but given that I could see several other ways to use this basket in the future it was worth spending $15 for it. Overall, I could see myself purchasing more of these for other uses around the house (e.g., laundry baskets for each room, recycling in the study, etc).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great size I purchased one of these a while ago because it was the perfect size to fit under the laundry room sink as a hamper I love the size and look of it so I just recently purchased a few more to use for paper recycling, a home for my kids school bags/papers and other such uses. Great product, stacks nicely and doesn't take up too much floor space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect laundry basket Holds just the right amount of laundry for a load in my front loading Bosch washer. Easy to stack when empty. I have 6 of them so I can sort, fold, carry up and down the stairs. The handles allow for a more natural and safer way of carrying the laundry so you can see what is in front of you and feel balanced when going up and down stairs. Shocking - but my husband (who usually doesn't say much about much) - told me he really liked these baskets!!! I will get a few more so I can keep one in every kids room (I have 5). I do over 23 loads of laundry a week and these baskets are the best part.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great space Saver We bought this basket to put in our bathroom cabinet for dirty towls. It is great. I had been looking forever for a basket that would fit. Durable and holds enough for a full load.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A unique laundry basket with eternal potential I love this laundry basket for several reasons. 1) The handle. The handle is wonderful for toting and is easier on my back than traditional laundry baskets. One-handed function is easier to maneuver through small spaces without bumping into things. 2) Space management. It's narrow and tall, so it takes very little floor space for storage. I have several baskets and when stacked, they are very compact and fit into space conveniently. 3) Practicality. May used to transport clean laundry to the folding station. I use mine to sort laundry prior to folding--T-shirts, socks, and underwear. Use one in each family member closet for a hamper. 4) Family systems management and legacies. The handle is an suggestive motivational device for family members to do their part on wash day--bring their clothing to the laundry center. Inspires creative family-centered activity, bonding, and memory-making, especially if...the last person to bring their laundry is the one who does the laundry, second to last person, get's to fold it, third to last person gets to put it away--whatever rules you want to make. Imagine if laundry baskets as family system organizers like this led to a family togetherness, connection, and generational legacy! 5) Pass the legacy AND the basket on to the next generation (It was my great-great grandmother's!). 6) Consider the archeological value someday when it is unearthed and future people can understand how we lived right now. Imagine if it is then connected with the ContainerStore! No end to fun and imagination with this product that makes life more meaningful and fun!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Loved it until the handle broke... Part of the plastic snapped off after a few months' use. Otherwise sturdily made but now with only one handle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great laundry basket I wish I had a reason to buy more of these baskets. I have one for baby laundry, and when it is full it pretty much fills the washer sufficiently. The handles are great - They will stay up by themselves, and when down, they rest on the basket rim.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thrilled to find these baskets! I have been looking for a basket, which could not only hold my laundry in my closet, and that I could manage the size and weight of the laundry, to carry down 2 narrow flights of stairs to the basement , where the machines reside. These are absolutely perfect for this task, and they look good. Can see many uses for these baskets!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT BUY!! This laundry basket is both stylish and functional. The vertical design, the pearly-white color, and the handles (not to mention the reasonable price) all contribute to why this laundry basket is a great buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Nice Been looking for a handy carrier for my laundry. So many of them are flimsy and too short. This one is sturdy and just the right height to place on the floor with the handles upright & reach it without bending over. Exactly as pictured & just what I wanted.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Mod Laundry Basket I am not sure if anyone remembers the days of hauling your laundry to the cleaners in green trash bags, but I do. Wow, did I just date myself? This is the only way to go to the neighborhood Laundromat - in style. It holds a bundle of clothes and carrying them to and from the car is easy with the tote handle. Love it. Also works well for going to the local farmers market and carrying your goods back home. Add a few sunflowers to you tote and you are very boho-chic!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from disappointed The baskets are much smaller than they look, howevr they are useful, just not as laudry baskets.
Date published: 2010-07-18
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functional & Lean This is a great basket that stores items more vertically and allows you to easily carry items with handles. It is less back breaking than traditional horizontal baskets. I wish that it were a few inches taller and more translucent because the actual color is more of a pearly white semi-translucent color. I was excited to see vertical baskets, so I purchased several of these. Laundry work is much easier and the neutral color blends in with everything.

1. Do the dimensions listed include height of handles upright? 2. Do the handles fold down?
Asked by: mmcmg
The height does not include the handles. The height with the handles up would be 22-1/2". The handles do fold down.
