    Promising review: "I have it in my pantry but it's handsome enough to display on a counter. I bought two to place on each end of my pantry shelf, but you could easily put two next to each other creating a half circle of shelving. Bottom two shelves can hold two-deep, depending on size of container. Very good price -- you'd pay three times more if you bought it at Container Store or Sur La Table." β€”LindaLou

    Price: $10.99

    Promising review: "My kids bathroom was in dire need of storage. This cabinet offered the perfect solution. Since it was going to be in their bathroom, I tasked my 10- and 8-year-olds to follow the directions and put it together. I expected to jump in and finish up, but they were able to put it together in no time. It looks great in their bathroom and holds toiletries with no problem. Pay attention to the dimensions, because it is not deep enough to hold towels." β€” Smiles

    Promising review: "This is one of the best things that I have bought. I really loved the idea of using this organizer to stack more clothes in the closet. I have a closet which runs through back of the wall. So, I could not reach the end of the closet easily. I used this organizer instead. Now I can slide this to the end of the closet (where I cannot reach easily) and pull this when I need it. I love how this looks, simple design yet very sturdy and holds everything that I need to put in. The extra storage space for belts and ties are so thoughtful. Overall, I loved this and would highly recommend this to anyone buying." β€”Aashara

I put it up right away, using the hanger hooks that were included, and I instantly felt better! It hangs perfectly against the door, even with the weight of my shoes placed inside each pocket. I put the hanger thingy back over the door too, without either causing a problem together. I'm glad for that because again, no closets here! Thanks Walmart!" β€”MyKinKStar
