Plastic Grid Basket is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product Just like the item description states, this product can be used in many ways. I used one in a hall closet to store toilet paper and another to store candles of different sizes. They have an attractive and simple design and are so affordable! My only concern is that they are not really sturdy. For instance the one I used to store candles, would require me to use both hands to carry the basket. They are ideal for lightweight items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect This basket is perfect for sitting on part the shower seat holding everything ready for my shower. Everything is handy right where I need it. The fact that the bottom of the basket has the grids also makes it all the better. The water just drains right out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Multi-uses This basket can be used in the pantry to store canned goods as well as under the sink to organize soaps, etc. I have also utilized it by my computer to stack papers. It has a place in my linen closet to hold dish towels. Lastly, I have placed all house bulbs in it. The beauty of this product is that it is versatile, inexpensive and light-weight. I highly recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent For The Closet I use these to hold scarves, camisoles, socks, and such in my closet. They're low and open, so you can easily see what's in them. They're not terribly sturdy, so you wouldn't want to put anything heavy in them, but for my usage, they're perfect. If you have something delicate and easily snagged, you probably wouldn't want to use these. (I've occasionally snagged one of my loosely woven scarves.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful! I'm using these in my sons closet to hold socks and underwear. They were $2.99 a piece, and I bought two. Wish I would have purchased more. Great for anything! It's decently sturdy for being a $2.99 product. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from useful This is exactly what I was looking for, an open letter sized tray for the living room. I throw magazines, catalogs and other random paperwork I accumulate whilst going through it on the couch rather than leaving it laying all over the coffee table, side tables and the loveseat. It sits underneath the coffee table looking much better than just having a pile of papers. And it's super cheap, will definitely buy more if I find a use for them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I keep discovering different uses for this bin. I originally purchased these bins for a large paper project I was working on that entailed quite a bit of sorting and these bins were affordable for that purpose. Before that project was even finished, I discovered I could use these bins in the kitchen pantry, the office for supplies, dresser drawers, kitchen cabinets, the car, garage, bathroom, bedroom closets, my sewing room, etc. . They are also great for give away Easter bins filled with grass and goodies, they are also good for odd shaped items in the freezer, and refrigerator. I hope this is one items with The Container Store that isn't discontinued any time soon. I am still discovering the uses and possibilities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love!!! I love the plastic grid basket. I use them for all of my children's art work, to organize my laundry supplies and to keep my socks together!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent freezer basket Fits easily into the freezer of my side by side freezer/refrigerator. Slides in and out for easy access to the food inside. Open basket allows for good air flow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A file system that works for me! I have a terrible time getting my filing done. My accountant recommended that I try a basket system on shelves. We put the Elfa system in our office and I bought these baskets to use for the files. They are priced so that I could buy enough of them without breaking the bank. I bought wood rectangles at the craft store and painted them with chalk board paint for labels. I love how they look with the labels, they are the perfect size and the price is right! I plan on buying more to put on another shelf for more file storage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from this is perfect except for one thing. Plastic Grid Basket 12-3/4" x 10-1/8" x 4-1/2" h 10012031 This is an ideal solution for my internet store. the mesh prevents dirt from accumulating in the bottom (critical for a food business), and 4.5" is high enough to hold most boxes being processed for shipping, and the $2.99 price point works. There is only one problem which makes it unsuitable: it is NOT stackable. If you had this product in a stackable format, I would order at least 100. And if you had a larger version (maybe 18x18?) I would order 25 or 30 of those as well. But if it is not stackable it just doesnt work for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the shower/bath! I bought this basket to put kids' bath toys in. It works well since the bottom of the basket is a grid, so doesn't retain water. I wish it was a tad bit taller, but it does the trick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little wonder This little basket has become a little wonder in our house. I use it all my rooms for organizing DVDs, papers, etc. It keeps things organized and neat. I have several and have ordered more when needed. An inexpensive way to organize.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value and lots of uses Bought two of these boxes to hold boxes of tea. When my wife and I returned home we found some other uses and went back to the Container Store and bought 2 more! Very handy and very reasonably priced!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Overall Storage Basket Since my original purchase of 4 of these baskets, I have purchased 12 more at my local Container Store. Absolutely love these baskets... great price, great size for closet shelf , under sink, kitchen cabinet, just about anywhere...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best and cheapest organizer ever! I have about 3 dozen of these baskets. They are in the pantry to keep like food groups together (i.e., ethnic seasoning packets), in the closet to hold sox, in the kids' rooms to hold small supplies and gaming controls, in the kids bathrooms to hold "personal" grooming items, in the garage for extension cords, in the laundry room for lightbulbs, in the refrigerator to store odd jars of spices and rubs, in the bathroom and kitchen to gather cleaning bottles, under the kitchen sink to hold tea towels, on the kitchen counter to gather up odds and ends so everyone can return their scattered items to the proper place, in my home office to hold mail, also in the office to hold small supplies. I have a couple in my family room to hold various controls for the Wii and TV, to hold playing cards and score pads. Some boxes are lined, others are used exactly as they are. They hold small craft supplies and sewing items. If there is anything else I can use them for I will.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Neato This product has become an essential for my classroom. It has really helped me to organize many math materials for my first grade students. These baskets can also hold an 81/2 x 11 sheet of paper perfectly. I love that they are baskets so you can see through it to what is inside. They are also very affordable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the ticket for managing loads of paper! These baskets are just the right size and right price when you've got a massive paper dragon to slay. I buy them by the dozen! They give me hope that I WILL vanquish this monster someday! Previously, I was spending a LOT of $$ on the cheapest plain wire letter trays I could find - at about $7 each and not half as deep! (These could stand to have JUST a touch bigger footprint to accomodate file folders better. As it is, they do fit with a little squeeze.)

Community Q&A

I want to use the basket on a wood surface and slide it out. Would the bottom scratch the wood?

Asked by: Loriann
They might scratch wood. I wouldn't risk it.
