I needed something to hold all my stuff. When you go to bed and you need the remote for the TV or the bed Riser Remote. I can even use it for a water bottle storage if need be. I like that I can put my tablet in the pocket when I carry it to bed. It is so handy for a magizine as well. The limits for items is endless that you can use it for. It slides right under your matteress for making it hang without sliding out. This is a handy storage option for anyone who is either bed ridden or just wants some place to store items to keep the side table clear. This 11.8'' X 15 '' storage bedside pockets.
