Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great containers, excellent service I purchased cases of these clear containers in both sizes for an upcoming move then they will be for garage storage. They were delivered quickly. What I particularly like about them is that they are clear and very sturdy. So easy to see what is inside. I'll be more if necessary.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these totes! I am in the process of reorganizing my art studio, which is also my garage. The neutral color and 'see through' qualities of these sturdy totes will make it a serene space when I'm done. They have figured out the perfect measurements so that these totes fit front to back on an 18 inch shelf, maximizing storage capacity of each shelf. I particularly like the 25 gal. size, as they don't get too heavy. I order them by the case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It WORKED!!! My cat uses the box, but doesn't lower her bum, so she messies the floor. I've tried the 'high sided' cat boxes at 4 or 5 times the price of this box and they were never high enough so I decided to try this.. I carefully cut out the front for easy access and it's PERFECT! It's very easy to empty, the litter doesn't stick, and it looks clean.. Very happy with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Problem solver I was looking for a way to make the lower part of my kitchen cabinets accessible without going to the expense of installing roll out shelves since we will be moving soon. These totes fit the cabinets perfectly and hold the pots, pans, appliances, etc. I just pull out the tote to access whatever I need, plus it makes cleaning the cabinets easier - just remove the tote and contents, dust the cabinet and replace the tote!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Yarn Storage I bought several of these totes in the past to store my yarn and unfinished projects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Right size I was looking for a way to permanently store completed 12x12 scrapbooks of my daughters. The 50 qt. size allows me to store the books vertically so the contents does not get smashed under the weight of the books above it. So glad I found this container!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great toy storage Went in to the store looking for toy storage. More specifically Lego storage. I wanted something sturdy with a good solid lid that closed securely. This box had all that. It is wider so the Legos are a little more spread out and my girls can find what they are looking for but it is still compact enough and doesn't take much room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for storing I needed to clean my room and store away things I didn't want in my room anymore so the totes were perfect. The latches are so easy and fast to lock and does no harm to my fingers! I also like that they're transparent so you don't have to open to see whats inside in case you forget. They're good for organizing your things!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I use these containers all over my home for organizing all sorts of things, and in this case, the trunk of my car also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product! These Garage Totes are amazing! Great price for a great product. I use them for storage in my back room at my store and they fit so much merchandise! They fit perfectly on my shelves and have made my life so much easier. I can now clearly see what is stored where and easily restock my merchandise every night. I bought all that my local Container Store had in stock and will have to make another trip soon to pick up more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these containers These are the best containers and fit the shelves that I bought. They fit side by side and if you use the smaller of the two containers, they will stack on top of each other. I have many of these containers in my sewing room. I love the fact that they are clear and I can see the fabric in it easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome and great value Bought several of the 25 quart size to replace beat up xerox boxes I've been using to store pictures, yearbooks, mementos, and miscellaneous things. I like the size as it is roomy to hold a good amount of stuff, but not too much stuff. Pictures and yearbooks get heavy quickly so I wanted small enough containers to be able to fill them up but still have a manageable weight. Even the heavy boxes are easy to hold and feel extremely sturdy. The latch is also easy to do and undo but holds very well. Also love that they are see thru so I can access what I want without having to dig through several opaque boxes first. I don't have a need for the 50 quart size YET but when I do I will definitely get some. $8 for the 25 quart is good, and $10 for the 50 quart is even better! Awesome price for an excellent product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Garage Organization I used these totes for my Garage organization project. The large tote holds a lot of stuff, but is still manageable for putting up onto a high shelf. The small tote will stack two high to be the same height as the large tote. This makes for efficient use of shelving space.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great totes for moving/storage I liked the latches on the totes b/c they were actually secure, unlike some other brands whose latches tend to lose their hold even soon after purchase (to be fair, it's probably b/c I tend to overstuff them). The clear body is very useful and saves time rummaging and scavenging for needed stuff displaced in the move. Obviates labelling which can be tedious. A bit more expensive and smaller than I would have liked but the latter is probably for self-proclaimed, incorrigible overstuffers like myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite storage bin! I have physical issues that cause me to be VERY particular about my storage containers. I needed storage boxes that were durable, translucent, and had latching lids that were easy on my hands. These bins felt right, and once in use at home, proven right. Even full, I have no trouble moving the smaller bin, and my hands have never been happier! Thank you, Container Store!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and attractive storage I have the smaller garage totes. We now have a lovely Elfa garage so I want to keep everything organized and attractively stored. The locking lid on the totes protects the items inside from dust and dirt. The slightly contoured bottom of the totes fit well on the 16" Elfa ventilated shelving.

Community Q&A

Are these soft plastic or hard plastic that is subject to cracking from impact?

Some polypropylene plastics are hard and inflexible and can be cracked or broken with minor impact.
Asked by: Ann05
I have not had any issues with cracking or breaking. They are soft but solid.

Length of base vs. lid

The written dimensions give a length of 19-3/4". The tote tapers, so is this measurement the length of the base or the length of the lid?
Asked by: 3264
The dimensions listed for the Garage Totes are the external most dimensions of the product at their widest point, such as the lid in this instance.

Stackable with the Stor-It-All Totes

Do these Garage Totes stack with the Stor-It-All Totes?
Asked by: jokujo
The 25 qt. and 50 qt. Garage Totes are compatible with one another only. The Stor-It-All Totes do not stack well atop the Garage Totes due to the smoothness of the lids. The Stor-It-All Totes should stack on one another separately.

Compare Garage Totes with Other Poly Boxes

Is the Garage Tote made of a heavier gauge plastic than the other plastic storage boxes? Which of the storage boxes is considered to be the most rugged?
Asked by: MarkN
Our Stor-It-All Totes are made from plastic with a reinforced base, we would recommend these for garage use since they can withstand a little more.
