The boxes are so pretty I keep them on a counter rather than hiding them in a cabinet - as pretty as stained glass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Make great tarantula enclosures I bought three of these, used a 1" hole saw to cut a hole in the lid, and installed a 1" tabbed screen vent. Perfect, inexpensive enclosure for a baby tarantula that is a replica for premade enclosures sold for tarantulas. A niche use, for sure, but the perfect container for the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for housing baby tarantulas Bought 23 of them today for my just hatched baby spiders and I'll be back for more when the next batch hatch. Ventilation holes drill cleanly with a sharp bit. Just add some dirt, a piece of cork bark decorated with plastic leaves and moss and add your cute little baby spider! They thrive inside and look fantastic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from slim lined way to keep items organized, dust free I have been using these containers for over 3 years. They worked so well and kept my bathroom counter clutter free, I decided to buy more to further organize beauty items I had laying around. They are a great price and hold up well, no visible scratches yet. I bought different colors for my kids! Fits inside drawers too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the colors I used to love having colored glass holding things on my countertop where the light catches them, but those were so fragile, especially in the bathroom with bare feet. Fortunately, no incidents before I found these and the glass went to recycling. I have been very satisfied with the quality as they hold things we need on a regular basis and look beautiful too, especially on sunny days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Way to Display My Love of Art My sister and I have always loved to go to the Container Store, even if we had no intent of buying anything. I was so thrilled to get colored pencils for Christmas, and I immediately wanted to display them in my room. My first thought was the Container Store! So my sister and I looked around and found these inexpensive, yet perfect clear boxes that would fit my coloring utensils in. I ended up buying 12 of them, and I even found the lids to be useful containers too! I was very pleased with my purchase, and it looks great in my room!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from display storage work I purchased various sizes and colors to place small items in so that they were readily accessible to view and show to customers. The items were used in sales calls. The boxes were nice because they were small and stacked together to made organizing much easier and were easy to transport in a compact method.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are the best bead storage! I have purchased close to a million of these it seems. They are completely clear to see the colors without a haze and even on the boxes, the lids manage to stay on even when dropped. This matters when you have to pick up 100 very small beads out of your carpet. They are also very sturdy and durable. My only wish is they would be on sale every once in a while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing for Face Paints I'm a professional Face Painter, but most of my paints are only made in round containers that take up too much space in my kit. I've started to repot my paints into the small, 2in square containers and it's made my life SO much easier! Now I can fit 24 paints into a case that could originally only hold 12! Definitely going to be purchasing more :)

Community Q&A

Do this boxes have lids?

Are they solid cubes with lids or are they open on one side without a cover.
Asked by: htka
Yes they have thin lids at the top of the box (or bottom if you wanted to invert them). The box tops fit snugly enough, but i would not recommend placing the boxes on their lid as the lid would not stay in place if the box was picked up or knocked off.
Answered by: JKing
Date published: 2017-03-02

the lids seem to have a hole or something from the photo, is this true or is it just a plain sheet

Asked by: hannahwt
No there is not a hole at the top of the box. It is a small dimple in the center of the lid, which I am assuming is left over from whatever machine poured the plastic to make this box. It is a small indentation and not very noticeable
Answered by: JKing

I can't see them clearly. are they stacking like lego? And are they durable/

Asked by: estu
No you cannot stack them like legos because the top of one box does not connect to the bottom of another. Each side of the box is flush without a ridge in which to "click" onto another side of an opposing box. If you were to stack them on top of one another they would easily slide right off (due to the slickness of the plastic) I use a bit on museum tack when using mine, as not to have them slide about on my shelf. They are fairly durable. I've had mine hold heavy objects and survive a tumble off my bookshelf. They probably would crack if thrown or stepped on.

Can the amac boxes be drilled into without cracking ?

Asked by: Rjh0130
i drill them all the time for tarantula enclosures. You just need to let the drill do the work, and not use too much force. Melting holes, with a soldering iron or hot nail is an option as well, but that smells like burning plastic, so open a window. Lol

Will the lid stay on if they are stored on their side?

I want to store game pieces in them and store the tall narrow boxes on their sides inside the game boxes. Will the lids stay on if they are put on their side in a cardboard box that gets moved around a bit? Or will it fall off easily?
Asked by: JuicyJ
Yes, the lids stay on when placed on their sides.

Is it safe to store food?

I am wondering if the container is food safe for dry fruit, gummy bear, sugar, etc? Is the lid air tight, close to air tight, or loose?
Asked by: AmyBo
They have containers that are "food grade" that I recommend instead of these. Some plastics are bad to keep food in because they might contain hazardous and carcinogenic compounds. Type 10064940 in the search bar for food safe storage containers. That's what I bought!

Could I put a lit tea light in a voitve holder inside the largest amac box? I would put sand in the bottom of the amac box and then the candle holder

Asked by: Billjaby
We do not suggest the amac boxes be used to hold / contain a lighted candle or tea light.
