I do use them, but it's usually haphazard. Have used for craft storage, but only until a better container comes along or the supplies are used up. Recently "lost" one that was holding beads. HRH didn't recognize it as a craft and put it in a closet. So obviously, that wasn't the best. The beads needed to be in a clear-ish container I could label better. Some do hold shoes. Two that have the hinged lid with a lip store my DVD workouts in one and small weights in another. The weights one can slide under the bed so little hands don't find them to drop on toes.
Continue to chip away at the mountain here in paperwork land. Got a push when HRH and I were both going to have to sit at my desk together for some work. That forced me into some bigger decisions.
