Black Tote Boxes
I had moved from living in a 4 bedroom house to a 1 bedroom apartment. I had a lot to put in storage but not enough to rent a unit, I was looking through the container store and these caught my eye. Spacious, sturdy and while not completely water tight, looked like they could be weather resistant (some of my stuff is actually sitting on my balcony. ) They are really roomy and managed to keep my stuff dry. I would recommend it.

The sustainable way to move (PCS)
My husband is in the Army and we have to PCS (Permanent Change of Station) about every 3 to 4 years. Traditional cardboard boxes were no option for me as they tend to break, water or other dirt can leak in and they are just bulky to store and most often to messed up to reuse. We opted to invest into storage totes. As these are easy to stack on top of another when moving and can be nested in themselves for minimal storage space in the garage. The lids fits nice and snug and they are water proof. Trust me, you can't imagine what moving boxes have to endure, while moving from west to the east of the state. We originally bought 8 of the larger and 4 of the smaller ones and i am now purchasing another 8 of the large ones and another 2 of the smaller ones. they are definitely worth their investment. I recommend them for indoor household goods. My husband stuffed a few boxes with garage tools (car stuff mainly) and they tend to expand (color turns white on the plastic), but i would expect it when you store like 100lbs worth of wrechens, screw drivers, nuts and bolts.....so pack them feasible. (Men sometimes!) but overall, very good product!

Inside or Outside
The detailed spec's on the tote don't tell the whole story. You must know that the measurements listed in the spec's are of the outside edge of the top of the tote. Why is that important? Because the tote is 4 inches narrower in it's measurements of the inside bottom!
Thanks for being a great store in so many ways. However more item info will make it easier to order from your online store.
