Our Jumbo Box
Best investment EVER!!!
I have had these large bins for over 15 yrs and they are still going strong! Being a student until now, I've had to move practically every year. These bins have carried me through each move with ease. I can see what is in each box, making packing and unpacking smooth and stress-free. Every year I continue to be amazed by their durability. The cost in savings over purchasing cardboard boxes year after year is obvious. What is really valuable though is that these boxes are waterproof, protecting against damage to contents from rain, sleet or snow. Due to not so gentle movers, the lids have cracked over the years and I was left with lidless bins. When I called customer service to see if I could purchase replacement lids, they sent them to me free of charge! Thank you, Container Store!!!!

Didn't buy this for the usual reason
I bought this because I was looking for a large storage bin with high sides to use as cat litter boxes for my two large cats. I liked these because they had no indentions on the sides or bottom making it easy to remove all of the soiled cat litter and they had higher sides than any ready-made litter box but they weren't so big dimension-wise that I had to use excessive amounts of cat litter. It took a bit to cut away some of the side for an entrance but it's worked great! No more "overshoots" so I don't have to deal with the disgusting mop up. I know this isn't what most readers are looking for in a review of these bins but they suit my purposes and maybe it'll give some of you with the similar problem an idea for a solution!
Thanks Container Store!

Don't get it shipped
I love these products and have them throughout the house in all sizes. But don't get them shipped. They end up breaking along the way, and the return hastle isn't worth it.

Jumbo Box good for certain applications
I use these for storing winter clothes and such in the attic, and these boxes are PERFECT for that. It's nice to be able to see through the box. If you need something for moving across the country, you'll need something a little more durable and sturdy. The lids will pop off if you are travelling, and also I've had a few instances of the lids cracking.
