Our White Storage Boxes
I expensive purses are happy!
I have some high end handbags. I didnt want to keep them in their boxes which were bulky and taking up room. I bought this to keep all of my bags in to protect them. It works well and it sits up in the top of my closet for easy access.

Not Heavy Duty
Usually I love Container Store products, but this was a disappointment. I purchased a large size box to hold office supplies. According to the website description, it's made of "heavy fiberboard," not lightweight cardboard, but this is not true. In fact, the cardboard is about the thickness and durability of cheap shoebox cardboard; it's very flexible and thin. I was surprised they would bother putting metal adornments onto something so non-durable. I wouldn't dare put office supplies in this box and try to lift and move it with the handles. Instead, I put very light cotton sheets in it for storage, and plan to try not to move it at all. Even then, it sagged on the bottom when I lifted it.
Like others have mentioned, the sections don't fit together properly, leaving large holes on the corners. I used duct tape on the inside to hold it together better. I gave this box 2 stars only because it does have a large capacity, it looks nice after being taped up inside, and it's recyclable. I decided not to go to the trouble of returning it, and make do with it as is. However, I won't purchase any more of these (which I had planned to do), nor will I recommend them.
It's possible the small boxes may suit their purpose better, since they are meant to hold smaller items, but the big box should be made of stronger material. If you need a strong white box, I suggest their "Our Best Box" instead; it's not as pretty, but is very sturdy.

Short, Sturdy and to the Point
I got this box to hold a large, unruly pile of extra magazines. It does that job well. It's fairly straight forward to put together, and is reasonably sturdy. The material is no substitute for a plastic bin, but it's sturdy enough to hold heavy, awkward things as long as you are not moving them around a lot.
