The Container Store's Grid Tote is Garrett's favorite back-to-school item for college students. Many co-eds use these totes to transport toiletries from their dorm rooms to the showers, he says. Knowing that cost is a big concern for many college students, The Container Store offers these for $7.99 to $9.99.
At home, Garrett says he uses these totes to sort mail. They also make a great carrying case for cleaning supplies and gardening tools.
