18-Compartment Small Clear Box is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 91.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from disappointed I found these impossible to open, same for both boxes. I tried and tried and eventually pried one open, but figured that if I stored my larger earrings in them they'd be flipped all over the floor when I finally could pop the box open with great force. And then I figured I'd likely split the box sooner or later using the amount of force required to open. I'm not sure how to return them during this pandemic when the stores are closed and I'm not able to get to the post office myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Endless possibilities As a teacher, I will use these when teaching about coins. Great for storing beads, threads, stamps, stickers, etc... for crafters. Campers can use for lures, first aid box, spices, bug collection, and more! Easy to see items inside when latched, and can be stored by stacking or hanging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Earrings I love this box. Went back to pick up a second one. Organized earrings so that I could actually see them to wear!!! I did break off the top so that the larger earrings would fit. I'll buy another if I need it. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Slides (Photos) Storage I'm cleaning up and organizing family history events and needed a way to store and sort slides my parents had taken over their 50+ years together into small manageable groups. Each cube on the 24 compartment Box is a perfect square, so slides can be placed in horizontally or vertically and easy to retrieve. Just remember to leave space for fingers or tweezers to be able to extract the slides for later sorting and viewing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! This is my second one like this. I also have the smaller compartment one too. I use it to organize my wine charms. Depending on the size of the charms, they both work great! However this size is more versatile. I love charms for wine and coffee cups when I have company. I have a ton, and now I can find the sets without digging though one container.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for game components I purchased the 36 compartment container for my Zombicide board game survivor miniatures. Of all released figures (100+) only 4 with large extended weapons won't fit. If you don't mind modifying the case you can easily Dremel or cut out part of a divider to fit them in. The crystal clear covers allow me to quickly find the correct minis and the cases are sturdy enough to protect the minis or any other game components. If you store painted figures the hard plastic case might be a drawback.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice I bought several of the 12 and 24 compartment boxes to store jewelry. I had everything in plastic boxes but they were not clear and were different sizes. Although I went looking for something different, I am very pleased with the way these look on my dresser. They are so much nicer than what I had and I can now see everything without having to open each box. These would be good for any small items, crafts, jewelry, etc. that you wanted to look nice and be protected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect storage I started purchasing the crystal clear boxes a month ago. I store my jewelry sets in each compartment so that a necklace and the matching earrings are together in one section. The earrings hang on the sides of the compartment and do not impede the ability to close the lid securly. With the smaller compartments I store either rings or other earrings (those not in a set) and I can set everything up by color so it is easier locate and decide what pieces I need for a particular outfit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Moment of Panic! I make my living as an artist. I produce original etchings which are then hand-painted with watercolor. I have used these 5-compartment Container Store boxes for over a decade to contain the individually mixed watercolors I use for each published edition of etchings so that when I get ready to paint etchings in a particular edition I simply have to take down the labeled box or boxes that go with that edition, open it up, wet the paints and get started. These boxes are perfect for my purpose so when it came time to order more (I stock up so it's sometimes a long time between orders) and I couldn't find them on the CS website, I panicked. I then went way back in my business files and managed to find the last sales receipt which had the item number and was able to successfully reorder them. I was greatly relieved that I wouldn't have to start the quest for a different paint box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compartment boxes These are absolutely perfect for my needs. I am organizing my sewing notions and thread, and the larger compartments are perfect. I did order one that will not work for my needs at all, and that one is the one with quite tiny little compartments. They are much too small for thread or most of the other things I need to store. This is my fault however...had I divided the dimensions by the number of boxes I would have known they were too small. The larger compartments are perfect, and I will be ordering more of them to complete my storage needs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Cuff Links Organizer I needed a way to organize my husband's collection of cuff links. Traditional jewelry boxes didn't have enough spaces so I bought this case to hold them. They fit perfectly in the spaces. Since the links stand on their head, sometimes I have to flip it over to choose. For my use I'm thinking of putting a mirror underneath it so I can see the links better without flipping the box.

Are the dividers arrangeable? Can you remove some of them?

I'm looking to organize vintage chunky jewelry, and would like to store a necklace or two, with all of the coordinating earrings in the same box. In your photo with the sewing pins (top photo) that would work perfectly.
