Container Love

I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect laundry basket for Leyna’s room for 2 years now.

That’s quite possibly the lamest thing I’ve ever typed on here. 

But it’s true! Cute laundry hampers be expensive, yo!

At long last, last month I randomly stumbled upon the most perfect one ever.

It’s a Crunch Can by Umbra, and it was only $15 (on sale at The Container Store, it regularly retails for $20 there, still not bad). They have several colors, but no purple, which is what I was hoping for. That said, the pink is an awesome little punch of color in her PB&J room, and the ombre makes it less loud. And, it’s huge! Filled to the brim, it’s one super sized load of laundry.

I also grabbed a new recycling container while I was there.

We were in desperate need of one of these since or method for separating recyclables before it was to stack it all in whatever random box or paper bag we had laying around. This is the Recycle Crunch Can by Umbra ($12).

I’ve had them both for about a month, and they’ve held up really well. Not paid to plug them, just love them… you know, as much as one can love a container.

  1. I have had an Umbra Crunch Can in my daughter’s room for 2 years now and it is still going strong! I love it, too!

  2. I have one in our living room to hold all the random blankets and throws and on occasion whatever crap is laying around that needs to be quickly put away before company comes. We also have the rectangular one we use for a toy bin. Love these.

  3. You totally inspired me to go to the Container Store today. I ended up getting the rectangle version of that hamper in yellow for toy storage in our grey an yellow living room. Of course, I ended up spending like $70. They should really pay you for this post 🙂

  4. I have to laugh…the line that states “That’s quite possibly the lamest thing I’ve ever typed on here,” can’t possibly be as lame as reading this post a year and a half ago, remembering it and searching your blog for a half hour in order to find where you purchased that laundry basket.
