It is what it is. It works well. I put stuff in the wastebasket and it stays in there until I empty it. Nothing has ever escaped from the wastebasket. I needed a brown wastebasket and it is brown. Seriously, it is a sturdy wastebasket and I am happy with it. It does seem like a lot of money for a plastic wastebasket. I needed a brown wastebasket this size and it was the only one I could find so I spent the big bucks.
I love these Rubber-Cal Mats - the Blue is really pretty. Overstock had these mats at an amazing price. I would recommend these mats to anyone looking for a good sturdy front entrance mat that is not bad looking.
