Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice size It is a nice size and exactly what I expected. It did arrive broken in the corner, but the exchange wasn't a problem at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4/5 not bad There isn't much to a file tote box, so when the minimal things aren't great, it's a downer. Example, the lid could be tighter. I have filled the box and paper is heavy, so when you lift the box, sometimes one side will pop off. Also, the description says for legal size paper as well, but that's only if you don't mind them being angled, as that's the only way they fit. The space to hang the files is great and sturdy. Other than the said notes, great product and good size for storage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! It was heavily discounted because the top was missing, as a teacher, this is all I needed! I file student work in it, and the students check their file for their work. Love it. The files just glide forwards and backwards, unlike the crate I was using before. Thanks!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Re-org a life's papers project The folder files and hanging folders where a good buy. Only item that would have been preferred that was not available were locking lids f or the folder files. Since the papers are keepers, I would have liked more security from water, et. al. There was no alternative since the locking containers have no facility for the folders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for filing and storing (and working) I have about 10 of these, at least, for items I've filed away and things I'm working on. The lid fits snugly. I'm not worried about moisture in the basement. They stack perfectly without slipping. And can be used legal or letter paper length. I'm sure I'll be getting more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a must have Between my boyfriend and I we have accumulated 4 of these over the last few years to contain all of our important papers. Lovelovelove that they are stackable. They are lightweight but they can get heavy because they fit quite a lot of files. Being translucent, it is easy to spot the right file if you use colorful folders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real money saver! These boxes are a real money saver compared to the cardboard bankers boxes. They're designed for files, but you can 'standardize' your storage using these boxes. They will fit toys, clothes, shoes, craft supplies and more! You could use these as the one-size storage box you buy for your home or office because then all the boxes stack together nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great File Tote! Loved the tote boxes! Got 5 of them actually :) Love that I can use Letter or Legal size hanging files, depending on my needs. Love the stackable feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Size This container is a great size for what I needed. I had more files than fit in typical sized (smaller) containers, but didn't want a whole huge cabinet. Plastic is very sturdy, lid is secure, and I like that it accommodated hanging files as well

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better than a 4 drawer file cabinet! One day, while rearranging my home office, I found that my 4 drawer file cabinet was taking up way too much room. I tried to fit it into my office several ways to take up the least amount of space, with no luck. That's when I got the idea to see what The Container Store had for a solution. I immediately got online and found these Translucent File Tote Boxes. They are exactly what I was needing for my office! They are easy to access, stack, and hold a lot of files! After purging out a few files, I was able to get all of my files into 4 of these totes. It was a very good day when I realized I didn't need to keep that huge 4 drawer file cabinet around any longer. I wish I had found these totes years ago!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommend!! I picked up a couple of these in-store during the office sale and was incredibly impressed. They are very sturdy, the lids fit well, and they are simply fantastic for storing hanging files. The files actually fit (and hang on little side rails making them easy to access and use in the box as well), unlike cardboard banker's boxes whose lids never fit well when packed with hanging files. Wound up buying a bunch more online to get rid of a bunch of cardboard boxes in the garage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ingenius I originally bought this file storage for my elementary classroom. I used it for a year with legal sized files. I've since repurposed it for my home and letter sized files. As usual, I wonder why no one thought of that sooner!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for storing files These are fantastic for storing files longer-term. I keep all old files (prior year tax returns, etc) in my crawl space. Keeps them safe from any potential water damage vs the 'bankers boxes' made from cardboard.

Community Q&A

DIfference in the size between description and an aswered question

An answer to another question said the box's interior dimensions were 14-3/4" x 11-7/8" x 10-1/4" tall. The description says that the box is 18-1/8" x 13-7/8" x 11-1/4" h.Which is correct? I'm interested because the description says it's 18-1/8". I don't want it if it's 14-3/4". SKU#: 10013806
Asked by: Vfore
The dimensions listed on the product are the outermost measurement, the interior dimensions you saw would be the inside bottom of the box.
