Wide Underbed Drawer
These bins are so much better than the traditional under bed boxes you have to pull out completely. Plan to buy more.

I purchased to put in walk in closet to store out of season items. Works great with the exception being when stacked the bottom drawers drag.

Perfect for taming kiddo clutter!
We bought these to put under our son's bed and couldn't be happier. They store quite a bit and we were able to fit two under his twin bed. Since the stuff is still easy for him to access, we don't have any problems getting him to put it away. They're perfect for craft supplies, race car tracks, and even Legos!

Exactly what I need
I started buying these drawers last year and am up to 18 in my storage room. I have lots of vintage linens and other textiles that I need to store as flat as possible without folding them a hundred times to put them into a box. These are the only plastic box-type item that I have found with these dimensions and I love them for my purposes (my requirements were large square size and relatively flat). I don't put anything very heavy in them (only two or three items per drawer), so I can't speak to how they will hold up with heavier contents (it's possible that the bottoms of the drawers will sag and deform over time if you overload them). The drawers slide in and out fairly smoothly, though occasionally the bottoms will get caught on the drawer "frame", but I've learned this and now tend to support the bottom as I pull out the drawer so this doesn't bother me anymore. The heavier your contents, the bigger problem this might be. The drawers stack nicely, and if you have them up against a wall then they stay in place. If you have them without support in the back, you might find they move out of their place if you close the drawer with a bit of effort. They're not heavy enough on their own to create a super sturdy tower (which is great because they're lightweight and easy to work with), but once things are inside they are better and you get a stack of drawers that stays in place. I have various stacked heights ranging from two to six drawers and I like all of the combinations. I sometimes remove the drawers completely from their frame and carry them to places and I have never had a problem with the plastic being too flimsy - everything stays right in place. There's no "stopper" mechanism to keep the drawers from coming out of the frame, which I personally really like as I don't have to work to remove them, but maybe it would be a problem for someone else who doesn't want them coming out. Personally, I have never noticed a risk of the drawer falling out of the frame without me manually pulling it out all the way, so this shouldn't be a problem for anyone. These storage containers were the answer to a multi-year search and I'm thrilled they came out with this product. They are exactly what I need and for being a specialty-size product, I think the price is very reasonable. I used to buy them at my local Container Store, but I have since moved to a city without one so I order them online when they offer free shipping promotions. I plan to buy at least another dozen and hope that the product doesn't get discontinued any time soon (always a fear for me when I find a great product that's only carried at one store and different from the "standard" sizes and formats).
