Rated 5 out of 5 by from Repurposeful gift I got this handy carryall as a gift box to hold a larger gift certificate for a friend. I crumpled up cute tissue paper inside,which looked adorable through the clear exterior. It is such a handy size carrier for so many things. It created a gift within a gift and no gift boxes were wasted.. My friend liked it as much as the gift certificate!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE, LOVE, LOVE These Handy Boxes!!! Bought 2 of these in the standard 9" x 5 3/4" size & I absolutely love them. I wanted one for my DSi gamer...& it's perfect! I'm able to store my DSi inside it's protective hard zippered case, my DSi stand, my extra stylus & my hard plastic 24 slot game cartridge holder & still have room left. I can even fit my game chger in it, as well. The box is very compact, nicely made, closes securely & all my gaming equipment is nicely stored in one place. I like that it's clear so u can see at a glance that everything is where it is should be. The other box will be allocated for some of my crafting supplies. I will definitely be buying more of these little treasures & would highly recommend them to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Long Handy Boxes I love the Long Handy Boxes! They are the perfect size to store bangle bracelets upright. I have hundreds of bangle bracelets and with the Long Handy Box it is easy to store dozens by color. Since the box is clear, I can see what I want at a glance. I have two and will be buying more for sure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well I purchased the Long Handy Box to store my Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads. The Long Handy Box makes it so convenient to store my stamp pads! I added the name of the ink color on a label to the edge of the stamp pad and placed them in the box. I can see the pads through the clear plastic. The box also allows me to store the pads in a "stack". I simply turn the container on it's end & open the lid for quick access while I'm working. The only draw back to this box, like another reviewer mentioned, is the latch continually popping off every time it's touched. I'm working on a way to prevent that. But otherwise, I'm very satisfied with the box - especially that it has a handle!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy Medicine Box! I'm in love with these boxes for all kinds of uses, but my favorite is as a medicine kit for my toddler. It's sturdy and the handle is great. I can easily fit two bottles of medicine, an ear thermometer with covers, baby menthol rub, and various other necessities in here--more than you'd think! It's easy to grab in case of emergency, and even on a normal day when he's not feeling well, it's great to have everything in one handy spot to take from room to room. I also use these for crafts, toys for the car, even as a snack box from time to time. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for dental models As a dental student, I needed a box that was sturdy, big enough to fit dental models/casts, but small enough to squeeze into my locker. These are great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what I needed but... I purchased the long handy box to store my make-up brushes and it worked well, however, the latch at the front of the box keeps coming off. It's easy to put back, but it just gets a little annoying when you have to do it over and over again. Other than that, the box worked well for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite item at the store I own over 25 of the handy boxes although the tall one is my favorite, I use it the most in the craft room to hold my pens, markers, paints, die cuts, stencils and my card examples. However, it is also a great container for the office as it perfectly fits CDS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long handy box = nail polish storage The long handy box is perfect for keeping a few bottles of nail polish and some nail files/tools. After buying one for myself, I decided to order several more for gift-giving.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A handy box I purchased this box after carefully measuring, as I had a specific need in mind. It is a tight fit for my need but it works just fine. It does hold what I needed it for. Seems sturdy and will be used in all kinds of weather so it seems to be just what I needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great First Aid Box I bought the standard box to keep our first aid supplies together. Before we had bandages, neosporin, wound cleaners, etc in so many different places. Now it's all together. You can see exactly what you have in it, without opening it. I keep the box in our linen closet. When my son gets a ouchie, all I have to do is grab it, fix him up & he's ready to go. I want to get another one for first aid supplies to keep in my car. But the great thing about these really can use them for anything!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight box I purchased the standard box ($3.99) to give to my two year old granddaughter. I wrote "art box" and her name on it and loaded it with stickers and some crayons. It was very easy for her to grasp and carry and she could see what was in it. Perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed! I wanted something simple to store computer software CDs, just in paper sleeves (not jewel cases). I have 50 in mine now (Tall size), could probably hold 75. I keep it on a shelf and know exactly where all the software is for 4 computers. Just excellent! Holds exactly 12 jewel case CDs if you want to use it for that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic price! I love versatile things! These boxes are so wonderful for storing and carrying anything. I use the long shallow one to store all my nail polishes. I use the tall one to store markers for my daughter. I use the medium one to store knitting needles. Tons of uses!
