Medium Colorwave Smart Store Tote
i got three medium smart totes, one pink, one blue and one green and they are awesome! not sure what i was thinking of putting in them but when i needed to put some stuff away quickly, after the cat knocked a bunch of dvds on the floor, each one fit about 24 dvds, lined up on their sides with the titles showing for 20 or 21 of them along the length of the box and 3 along the side on their sides too. it of course depends too on whether they're regular size or a complete season of a tv show which tend to be bigger so the number you can fit in could be different. and the lid is awesome! a super tight fit but easy to open and close. one of the handles that helps close it was jammed almost shut so i didn't want to break it by forcing it open. it was still fine though as the lid could be slid under it and then it closed fine just like the other side. and looks like a nice tight fit that could withstand cats knocking it off something onto the floor. !! so i am ordering more. they are transparent so you can see thru them although if you want something you can read from the outside when they're closed you might want to get the clear ones just for easier ability to see thru them. and my only improvement would be to have more colours in this size !!! orange and purple and yellow are always good. so two thumbs up, five stars out of five and 10 out of 10. you can't go wrong with these beauties !!!

I got the clear bin with the 6 different colored tall inserts for art storage for my children. I really love it except for the fact that unsharpened pencils are too tall for it. I either have to jam the lid in place or sharpen them all. I like to gather up every odd and end craft supply they've gotten from school, birthday parties, etc in here so it's annoying to have to sharpen all 20 extra pencils. Other than that this is a great product and easy to use for young children (mine are first graders).

I bought this tote and six of the colored organizers to put inside. I am very pleased with the amount of space it provides! I love it that the container is clear so it's see-through and the colored containers inside show through just enough that it looks good. I am also happy that I can take out each colored container and use it as needed and then return it to it's place so everything stays neat and clean inside. I will be ordering more of these systems to continue to organize my life! Great design & quality.

Okay for some uses
This works for what it is, a lightweight storage option for organizing small things. It is appropriately priced - much more affordable than Iris containers but also lower in quality/durability.

Perfect for Kids Craft Mediums!
This is the perfect solution when coupled with the tall insert bins. It's possible to organize crayons, markers, colored pencils, etc all in on container standing up straight. Would definitely recommend this to anyone trying to consolidate coloring supplies!

Get Your Artist On
My seven year old granddaughter can't seem to find anything to wear or get her clothes organized. But she can "keep calm and get her artist on" with her awesome Smart Store Tote organizer. Everything she needs for her art and crafts is right at her fingertips in colorful Smart Store Inserts. Thanks Container Store for Smart products that even delight a rather messy child.

My toddler kept getting into my supposedly child-proofed makeup drawer, so I had to find an alternate solution. I bought the Medium Wavy Smart Store Tote with a couple of inserts. Perfect solution! I stay organized and my toddler can no longer paint her body or my walls...or my furniture...with my eyeliner! :)

Perfect Art Caddy
This made a perfect art caddy. I made sure to label each insert with its contents: markers, crayons, scissors, etc. so even if everything is dumped everyone knows how to put it away. Great quality, too.

Great Craft Storage
I love to do crafts, but don't like to dig. I used the medium one to organize my stamping supplies and it makes me want to use them now that I can see them.

A Solution for Desks with Nothing but File Drawers
I have recently been assigned to a wonderful desk that has four file drawers and a keyboard tray where a shallow pencil/office supplies drawer usually lives. This colorful tote, when paired with six of the coordinating inserts (sold in tandem), fit perfectly within one of the file drawers. I now have six perfectly-sized compartments for everything from boxers of binder clips and staples to stashes of post-it notes, pens and markers. It made my wonderful desk function much better and provides a mood-elevating pop of color. Thanks, Container Store, for once again having just what I needed (and so much more)!

Great for storing and carrying rubber stamps!
I'm loving my new SmartStore Color containers! I often do art parties and so I need to bring my rubber stamps and supplies with me. This keeps them easy to organize and carry...plus I love the colorful color options!
