Get more options for home organization with Clever Crates

Flatten the collapsible Clever Crates when not in use and store them in a closet, garage or in your car. Unfold them when you need a place to organize laundry, garden supplies, snacks or school supplies in separate bins.

Sizes range from a 32-liter crate (35-pound capacity) to a 62-liter (132-pound capacity) rectangle. Solid- and open-walled designs with or without handles also are options.

Made from recyclable material, the crates can be washed and reused in place of plastic bags or cardboard boxes. $12 to $20, with several colors available, at retail stores or www.clevercrates.com.
