Great Storage Solution
Our IT Department needed a solution for storage parts and equipment. These containers have provided a great way of organizing and storing all sorts of items on the shelves so that they can still be visible and yet out of the way. Very durable and cleans up the build out rooms and server rooms! Thanks Container Store!

50 qt. Garage Tote stores scrapbooks well
OK. I'll admit I did not purchase the 50 qt. Clear Garage Tote to use in my garage. I selected this tote for its heightâ¿¿14-3/4" tallâ¿¿because I wanted a place to store my scrapbooks. The rule with scrapbooks is not to store them flat but standing up, as on a bookshelfâ¿¿but I didn't want mine to get dusty from long-term storage. My tallest scrapbook is 14" tall, so I figured this tote would work perfectly...only I didn't account for how the form of the lid dips down into the tote. It took several attempts at arranging, but I finally did find a way to fit my albums in there standing up AND get the lid snapped down all the way! (Arrange the albums along the width of the tote rather than the length of the tote, and turned the 11x14 album sideways.)

Exactly what was needed
This was exactly what was needed to organize our basement. Good for organizing my random box of gifts bags and gift paper as well as storing utility room tools. Translucent plastic lets you see what you have packed in each box, sturdy construction keeps it safe from damp and less than ideal storage conditions. Will be getting more.

Great product, dimensions are "off"
I bought 2 of these bins as "memory storage" for my kids. They have items that are too big for a shoebox, and I wanted to also be able to protect from moisture. It still works for me because the larger items are flexible paper, but I was a little disappointed that the dimensions were only for the largest area, the lid. Still, they fit nicely in the closet and do their job.
