Perfect for Homeschoolers! I LOVE these bins. I have recommended them to numerous other moms and I love their prices even more. I use the bins to sort out our home-school curriculum by subject. I love that I can just carry out one bins to our work table and have everything we need - notebooks, file folders, texts, misc manipulatives - everything fits wonderfully, whether standing up or laying horizontally. I love that these bins are deeper than traditional magazine files. Magazine files are NOT deep enough to accommodate a simple pocket folder. I plan on buying more bins for our next school year as we add one more daughter's books to the shelves. April 26, 2014
Purchase of the Year I was so lucky to have come across the Multi-Purpose Bins in an organizing blog. They are the best purchase I've ever made from The Container Store! I now have them in my fridge and my pantry and plan to use them in my office and craft area for sure. They are well made, but light and easy to clean. They make organizing and rearranging fun and easy and there's something about them that is more pleasing visually and to the touch than other systems I've worked with. I hope TCS never stops carrying them! May 3, 2014
Scored Big-Time! These Multi-Purpose Bins are amazing! They are true to size and will hold 12 x 12 scrap booking paper beautifully. The handles also make carrying and retrieving it from shelves very easy. Most all the other files or holders I have found say 12 x 12. At top that is correct, however for some reason they taper slightly at the bottom witch bends the corners. For a scrapbooker this is less than ideal. I have been so impressed that I currently have 19 of them in my paper room and 8 elsewhere in my house. I have also told and purchased many for friends. December 24, 2013
Amazingly useful! This is a multi-purpose bin that is truly multi-purpose! As a scrapbooker, I use these bins to hold 11.75"x5.75" chipboard albums and paper tablets that don't fit well anywhere else. I also use them to hold my BasicGrey chipboard sticker collections. Turned sideways, they are the perfect size to hold 12"x12" cardstock. In my home office, these bins are just the right size to hold file folders and miscellaneous school papers. I have picked up a few on each trip to the Container Store over the last year and am sure I'll find even more uses for them. January 9, 2010

I'm looking for a sturdy container that will fit into a file cabinet comfortably and hold either supplies or a large quantity of documents. BOX HANGING FOLDERS are made of paper and are vulnerable to tearing and collapsing, and have open sides so they will not work.

Thank you.

Answer: 
If your interior drawer dimensions are larger than the product dimensions, you will be able to place the bins inside. They are not hanging compatible, so they will just sit inside.
