Our Accessory Box
Over the Door Storage
Small apartment living requires smart, efficient use of every inch of space. I put these accessory boxes on an over-the-door shoe rack that had not been getting much use, and gained a tremendous amount of storage space! The before-and-after picture speaks for itself!
I can fit 36 boxes on one full-length shoe rack, and can sort and organize small toys, legos, crafts, and various odds and ends. I can't believe how much space I am gaining, and can't wait to buy more of these fantastic boxes in all sizes!

Perfect Pantry Organizers for Packets and Pills
I submitted this review on the Shoe Boxes page, but it's relevant here too.
I'm using these in the pantry rather than the closet; none of the products marketed for pantry use were quite the sizes I was looking for to organize a shelf where I keep food packets and pill bottles, but these were perfect. The contents of this shelf were difficult to stack, so were always falling over and it was hard to get to things in the back.
I purchased two of the regular 'Our Shoe Box' (exterior dimensions: 13" long x 7-1/2" wide x 4-1/4" high; interior dimensions from Q&A: 11-1/4" long x 6-1/4" wide x 3-3/4" high) to organize pasta/rice/nuts/baking-mix/sauce packets that kept falling over; I have the packets standing up in the boxes, with the boxes' lids off.
I also purchased one of the 'Our Men's Shoe Box' (exterior dimensions: 14-3/4" long x 10-1/8" wide x 5-5/8" high; interior dimensions from Q&A: 13" long x 8-5/8" wide x 5" high) to hold spare pill bottles/boxes (medicines/vitamins), with the box's lid on.
And I purchased two of the 'Our Accessory Box' (exterior dimensions 7-1/2" long x 6-1/2" wide x 3-5/8" high; interior dimensions from my measurements: 5-7/8" long x 5-3/8" wide x 3" high) to hold the pill bottles currently in use - one for my family's morning pills, one for the evening pills - with the boxes' lids off. They almost all fit, so now I can just bring one Accessory Box and one or two extra bottles to the table at breakfast and dinner, instead of carrying a bunch of loose bottles as I did for years. The two Accessory Boxes fit one behind the other on top of the Men's Shoe Box lid with room to spare, and would also fit perfectly on top of a regular Shoe Box lid.
These boxes are sturdy even when filled to bursting; the sides don't bend/bow. I considered several competitors' products before deciding on these, and not only are these Container Store boxes better sizes for my needs, they are also very affordable.

Best small and smaller
The First Time I Came To The Container Store Was 3 Months Ago Because It Is Not Available In my Home Town.... It Was Amazing. I Have A Ton Of Small Things N This Place Has Everything Imaginable. I Would Recommend This To Everyone. I Even Have A Container To Put Back If Earring StuDs To Clothes And Even Cute Designer Crates... This Place Is A Must.

Great for the pantry too!
These boxes are great for brown sugar, rice, and other items in the pantry!
