Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 109 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Small footprint for desktop I ordered the medium size open-top file box for my desk - it's the perfect size to hold important and often used papers, but doesn't take up too much space. The handles and file supports seem sturdy & the box is translucent and smooth. March 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Versatile storage - magazine holder These file boxes live up to their description and more! I found that turned on their side they made excellent magazine holders. Fit well on a desk or bookshelf - simply slide in magazines and pick up and go when needed. April 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Solution for organizing piles of paperwork! I was fed up with having piles of paper on my desk at work. I have always wanted to try a desktop file box to organize my paperwork. The problem is I can't always leave my work out on my desk. I need the option to lock up the files before I leave work. These open-top file boxes are the perfect solution! When I am done at the end of the day, I can put the file box in my hanging file drawer. I was so happy to find out that these file boxes fit perfectly! And the handles make moving the boxes super easy. Now my files are right beside me or out of the way when they need to be. And the price was right. I did not want to spend a lot since I was buying this for work. I also bought the kiwi hanging file folders for a pop of color. They really brighten my office! But they best part is No More Piles!! March 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by So helpful! I love these file boxes! I use one at home to file things that I need easy access to, and I use one inside my desk drawer at work for active files. March 21, 2015

Answer: 
No, you would need to purchase the hanging file folders separately. Since the box is clear, have fun with the color (or pattern) of the hanging file folders!

Answer: 
I think that depends on how many papers you will put in each of the hanging file folders. I bought a medium and a large open-top file box. I have 12 folders in the medium box but not too many papers are in each folder. I started off with 6 folders and had several papers in each folder. That worked well too.
If I had to guess, I would say 6 folders for the small, 12 for the medium and 18 for the large. You don't want to have the folders packed too tightly.
The answer from the container store says each sized box can hold 18 empty file folders. For the small box, you would only be able to file one or two pieces of paper max. That might work for some people but not me.

Answer: 
I think you have a great idea of using these boxes in place of hanging file folders. The file boxes fit into my file cabinet drawer at work and it seems pretty "standard" to me. Take a look at the picture I posted and you will see what I mean. I hope this works for you!

We don't recommend this for a file drawer. It will fit, but it's so snug that the plastic would bend or crack.

This doesn't help - it doesn't say which SIZE holds 18 files. Unless they all do, which doesn't seem right, does it?

Answer: 
Technically the small box can hold 18 empty files. You might be able to file one or two pieces of paper in each file but that is not practical for everyone. I like my hanging file folders to have room to breathe. :)
I think it is more realistic to say 6 files for the small, 12 for the medium and 18 for the large. The large box might even be able to hold more. I was surprised at how much paper I was able to store in the large box!

Answer: 
The box would hold the paper width wise, but the paper would hang over the top since the box is only 9-7/8" high. We recommend the following product below for that size of scrap paper.
