Our Best Box
Great Storage Solution
I own approximately 100 of these, purchased over a period of twelve years. They are clean in appearance (pure white, no writing all over them, easy to see labels I attach) and are sturdy. Because they are white, they do not rub off any color onto the paint on my walls, as some other brands have done. Obviously, I would recommend them highly, since I frequently buy more, and am still using some of the originals. I have filled many with books, and they support the weight. Only two "cons":
1. As they age (more than about 8 years), they tend to yellow a little to an off-white
2. They are not the very thickest-sided boxes available, and when you detach the flaps "B" and "D" (which come attached to the flattened box as purchased), the sides of the box may bend slightly, leaving a small permanent crease in the box. This is easily remedied by using a utility knife or scissors to detach the flaps.

You cannot wrong. Best Storage.
I just did a renovation in my bedroom. So , I decided to make shelfs in light color. I got more than 20 boxes in beige color for storage.
It is neat, nice, organize and make the room very light.
I strongly recommend.

IT REALLY IS THE BEST BOX !
Years ago my husband purchased a case of these boxes for our move from apartment to first house. I was very vocal in my opposition of buying boxes for moving as we could get boxes free at the grocery store. I've had to eat my words for over 20 years every time we remove items from storage in these awesome boxes.
TIP: Number your boxes and keep an index of stored items on a card or address book or on your computer or smartphone. Then when the box is used for something else or items are added or removed, the list may be updated instead of writing all over the box.

Great storage solution
We love books, but had to figure out how to store them when we downsized into a small apartment with minimal storage space. We had them in moving boxes in our storage closet, but the boxes got beat up from being stacked on each other and from being opened whenever we were looking for a particular book. I wanted an inexpensive solution that was easy to open and sturdy. We've been using them for 2 1/2 years, and they barely looked used. There in stacks 5 high and haven't bent or broken down from the weight or from being opened repeatedly.
