At For-Keeps.co.uk we know a good idea when we see one, and they don't get much better than the Reisenthel Shopping Box. We're experts in innovative solutions for shopping bags and storage (amongst other things!), so when we set our eyes on the Shopping Box, we knew we were on to a good thing.
Of course it's great for popping into the supermarket trolley for a 'plastic-bag-free' grocery trip; the strong handles make light work of transferring the weekly shop from trolley to car and into the house, the aluminium sides keeping everything safely inside and the tear-proof fabric withstanding all manner of knocks and scrapes.
But it's when the shopping's packed away that Shopping Box really comes into its own. It would be a shame to hide its good looks away, and its 40l capacity is just crying out to be used more than once a week - we've used ours for a laundry basket, extra packing space for a weekend away, a toy box, somewhere to stow out of season clothes, and it has safely transported children's projects to school on many occasions!
And if you ever find yourself without a job for the Shopping Box to do, it folds flat to be tucked in to a handy corner - but it's so useful, it won't be tucked away for long.
The Reisenthel Shopping Box is priced £22 and is available at www.for-keeps.co.uk along with many more brilliant storage and luggage idea.
