Our Basic Black Stackable Basket is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 101.
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 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!

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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Five Stars I really love this basic basket. I purchase the pink one and it is really strong. I will buy an other one soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Misleading Photo...But awesome baskets! I ordered these for my baby's room. I love the colors, they're sturdy and well constructed, but I was disappointed to receive only half of what I thought I ordered. The photos show that these come in sets of 2- not 1. So instead of getting 8. I ended up with 4. Just a heads up! Otherwise they're awesome! =)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Kiddo Loves It! I bought nine of the Basic Stack Baskets and wound up going back for three more. I got the green, blue, and pink for my daughter's room. It has really helped with getting her to pick up after herself. My only complaint is that they are a little difficult getting them to stack the first time; but I understand that plastic bins are just kind of like that when they interlock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Love These Baskets! I purchased 2 of these baskets and put them in my bathroom closet on the floor to maximize all the unused space that sits underneath the shelves. I can't begin to tell you how much I absolutely love these baskets. I keep my hair and beauty supplies in them. I would definitely buy more and put them in all of my closets on the floor to get better use of empty space!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So useful! These are great baskets for filling the space at the bottom of the closet - for shoes, snacks, towels etc. It's so much more efficient that just that big open space below the shelves! Love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from basic stack basket Another excellent product from an excellent retailer. These baskets are very sturdy, they fit together well, the color choices are just fine, and the price is very good. Price-performance is A-1.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice product for the price I bought this product to organize my craft supplies. With the cheaper price, I was able to buy more of them to stack. They are a little flimsy and you have to really push them together so that they stack securely, but the quality is sufficient for storage and for the price.
Date published: 2014-03-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatility I have a large walk-in closet with plenty of space for hanging clothes up but don't have a dresser .. So these are really useful! They stack up so neatly and fit in compact spaces, also super easy for putting stuff away. Exactly what I needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! I was looking for a colorful container to place my kitchen produce and this is working out great! They're sturdy, deep enough to keep bags of potatoes and onions and I love how I can stack them up if I need more space. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Value Around! These stacking baskets are wonderful! They can have so many uses! For storing toys in the kids' bedrooms, fresh veggies in the kitchen... you get the idea! They stack nicely, they're study and the major plus is that they're attractive too! With the bright colors to choose from, I don't want to hide these baskets away, mine are on display in the kitchen for all to see! Love these baskets; will be looking for an excuse to buy more!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy! These baskets were just what I needed to make better use of the space in my small closet. I bought a few and stacked them up for extra storage. It was inexpensive and I loved the splash of color it brought to my closet. At first they seemed little flimsy when I stacked them up but with a little weight they have been very stable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stackable Snacking! I bought two of these baskets to go on the floor of my pantry to use up the vertical space between the floor and the first shelf to hold my family's snack foods. They fit perfectly in the space I needed them for leaving room on the other side so I could put cleaning supplies; and they're big enough to hold all our snacks. For the price they're an excellent value. They aren't easy to move once you have them stacked, but if you're using them without moving them around they're great. I just wish I bought more colors!
Date published: 2014-02-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product for the price I am using these shelves in bathroom and bedroom closets as well as for shoes by the door. They keep shoes, toiletries, and small objects in one place which is a tremendous help with clutter. The only down side is the extra postage required to have these mailed to your house if, like me, you live hours away from a store.
Date published: 2014-01-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful for everything I have used these for years and recently came back for more! They have stored everything from outdoor toys in the garage to diapers and wipes in the nursery!
Date published: 2013-09-09
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good storage for toys I bought 6 of these for my son's room. He has so many toys that are much smaller and I needed a place to store them. They are lightweight, easy to stack in top of each other. They fit the small toys like cars perfectly and also can have books in there. My only issue is that he knocked them down once and it camp apart so easily. I wish the bottom legs of one that go into the top openings of the other were the connection was deeper and set better. I'm thinking of glueing them together.

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.

Stackable Baskets Height?

How high are two of these baskets stacked on top of each other? I understand one is 10 inches tall, but is there extra height when stacked because of the feet?
Asked by: TallGirl7723
10" is the overall height of each basket, but when stacked, about 1/2" of the foot sticks into the top of the second basket. Thus making the overall height of the two stacked together approximately 19 1/2".

how much weight can each bin hold?

I would like to use them in my pantry. I would put can goods on top, potatoes and onions on the second and less used items on the bottom.
Asked by: Wick317
These baskets can each hold up to 15 lbs. and should be stacked no more than four high.
