I should seriously write a love letter to the Container Store. I could get lost in there for days. I have a pretty consistent dream about running there “supermarket sweep style”. We don’t have one in town, so my trips there are few and far between. I stumbled across these bins about 3 years ago when I stopped in to pick up a broom on my way back from Chicago and I’ve been smitten ever since. I now have 9 of them total. 4 fill the entryway closet cubbies, 3 in the nursery, and 2 are sitting around until I find a spot for them.
I love the rope handles and the grey stripes. They are simple, stylish, and and totally my style. The bins made out of woven paper. They do take a while to “break in” because of this. All that took was putting some stuff in them so they stood up straight on their own after a while, but if you are looking for a sturdy bin, this bin is not for you.
