On occasion, I get asked to review products, especially around the holidays. Superio Brands has a nice collection of organizational products called The Ribbed Collection, so I got a chance to try out the 35 Liter Ribbed Laundry Basket, the 22 Liter Ribbed Storage Bin, and the 1.5 Liter Ribbed Storage Bin, all in Brown. They offer other colors, like Grey, Blue, and Lilac, but Brown blends well with my own home decor.
What I like about the collection is that it looks terrifically chic. Many plastic storage bins scream “Dollar Store,” no matter where you get them from. The Superio product does not, and avoids having that “plasticky” and uneven look and feel. So, if you want to display the bins as part of your decor, they blend in well, rather than stick out like a sore thumb. Which is why I chose to use the 22 Liter Ribbed Storage Bin as a magazine holder (yes, I still do get old school magazines, because that’s just the way I roll)
The smooth look of the product is legit—what you see on the site is exactly the product you receive. There are no sharp or scratchy edges to mar your tender hands, either on the surface of the product or more importantly, the handles, and all the products are beautifully lightweight. This is especially important with the laundry basket (featured above). There is nothing more cumbersome than trying to juggle a full basket of clothing and having the edges to the handles cut into your hands. The 35-Liter size of the basket is just perfect for one-two loads of laundry. The only drawback is that the basket could easily benefit from a fourth handle on the longer side to have the ability to carry it lengthwise.
My kitchen has a woeful lack of catch-all drawers, so the smaller 1.5 Liter basket is perfect for those small items like scissors, wipes, and glue. It makes for a neat and efficient presentation, as well as ease of reach.
Right now, Superio is offering free shipping on orders of $50.00 or more, and 10 percent off sitewide. Use the code: HOLIDAY10 to lock in those savings.
Hopefully this will help in rounding out some of those last minute gifts.
Happy yuletide shopping! And Merry Christmas.
