I'm hoping to reorganize the shelves in our laundry room soon, and I am looking for suggestions of baskets that are large enough to store toilet paper.

 

I usually buy in bulk at Sam's, right now we always just tear open the bag and grab out of it as needed. I want something a little more streamlined.

 

What/how do you store toilet paper? I prefer non-plastic containers, but looking for any suggestions right now! And if it an be purchased from Ikea, even better....I'm planning a shopping trip there this week!

I've always thought a picnic basket would be cute for storing TP. I store our's in the cabinet above the toilet though.

How about a pallet?  There are always Craigslist ads for free pallets around here.

I bought wicker baskets at Target to store toilet paper at our office and house.  I have large ones at the office that hold one of those huge packages because there is plenty of floor space.  For the house, I have ones that fit on the back of the toilet, these being long and sort of skinny, just the right size to sit on top of the tank.

We use the bottom of the linen closet to store a large package from Smart & Final, loose in neat rows to fit as many as possible with the last few crammed in. LOL Each bathroom has a spot for three rolls that can be reached while sitting on the loo: master = under sink; hall/kid = side of tank hook gadget; powder room = cabinet above toilet. Between the four areas, we can store one large package before they are completely empty...

I used a clothing hamper, I got plastic, but they do come in wicker.  It was the only storage container that would fit the 24 rolls of TP and storing it in the bathroom was a must plus the hamper didnt look out of place in the bathroom.

I did find one at Target yesterday that works perfectly! It's a nice, sturdy, large rubber (along the lines of the material rainboots are made of) bin in a pretty blue color. I decided against wicker after all, because it is in the laundry room that no one really sees, and I didn't want to spend a lot of money on it.

Here's my solution, and it's from IKEA!  

 

http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/60176925/

 

We installed a GRUNDTAL hanger with 6 knobs in each bathroom for hanging hand towels, but they are terrific at holding extra rolls of toilet paper.  When I come home with a package, I load up each bathroom with 4 rolls on the GRUNDTAL hanger, and store the rest in my linen closet nearby.
