This crochet pattern for a basket for your stash is a great idea.
It's generously sized and very easy to make.
The pattern is available free from Purl Bee and uses worsted weight yarn. I used aran weight yarn from my stash. I wasn't sure if I would have enough of one colour to finish the basket so I used Rowan aran in Blood for the base and Stylecraft aran in cranberry for the sides and handles. I used approximately 300 metres of yarn for the whole basket.
