Our Best Box
Exactly what I was looking for
I really needed to organize my closets. Ultimately I would love to have an Elfa system but since I am a broke grad student, I had to come up with a cheaper solution. These boxes were perfect! They look way better than the plastic drawers and mismatched crates I have collected over the years of moving and they fit my budget. I also plan on using these for future moves :) They were quite easy to put together and are really sturdy. I also bought white erasable labels and my closet looks pretty darn good.

Durable, Attractive Reusable Storage Box
I've been using the Container Store's classic Best Box with removable lid for years. It's white form without distracting writing (except on the underside) allows a tall bookcase (their excellent Skandia) filled with these boxes to hold a lot while still looking tidy and attractive enough for a den, office, and even an informal family room. An especially nice system if you have to move fairly often and dread repeatedly unpacking/repacking. The boxes are very sturdy and do a great job of protecting whatever is inside thanks to the 2-3-wall construction in most places. The boxes also can be disassembled, stored, and reused. The only thing I would suggest improving is somewhat easier-to-break connections between panels when setting up; some of the jagged cardboard break points can leave a slightly messy appearance. And a longer and slightly taller version of the Best Box (ideally 24-26" long and 12" high) with the otherwise same construction quality/sturdiness and removable lid is needed. The previous longer, lidded version that Container Store sold years ago was not nearly as rigid or robust.

You can store so much misc stuff
I used to store t-shirts, socks, and other misc stuff, then I typed a label and place on each box, looks so neat and I know whats in each box, no more searching the labels works great!

Sturdy but instructions poor
This box is more sturdy than boxes I have bought from other stores, however the directions are lacking. Once you start putting the bottom together, you can no longer see the instructions. There are no instructions for the lid. If you have put similar boxes together, you should be able to figure it out.
