Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magazine collection storage My hubby has a 10+ year collection of Road & Track magazines. I've been searching for a way to organize and store so they are accessible but also out of the way. These totes + some dividers were perfect! I could put each quarter year in a separate folder, label it, and have something neat & organized but also easy to move and store! Loved it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extra Large File Tote Box is Great! I purchased 8 of these to put in my legal size file cabinet in order to act as the frames to hang letter size files from. They fit perfectly, with a little room left in the front of the drawer and do the work of those wire frames that never seem to hold up over time. The box will never break down, probably will never bend or get out of shape and even if a file folder falls off the side track, it is self contained in the plastic container and easily retrieved and set into place. When I move, I simply lift out the container's of files, put the tops on the plastic container and off I go! Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Container! Spring is in the air (finally)... so the overhaul of the messy spaces around me are underway! I needed the space in what was the filing cabinet (for other organization) and I found these Filing Tote Boxes to replace the true mess that was going on with my bills. They fit a TON of stuff. Standard hanging folders fit perfectly. Great purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best storage ever This particular File Tote Box works so efficiently holding my filing system. The lid fits tight and secure so I don't need to worry about it coming off when I'm moving it around. A definite item you need in your office.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed! I bought this to help store the overflow from my file cabinets. Being clear it helps me see what's inside and it stacks nicely too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from File box IMO, clear file boxes are the best-- and all mine from Container Store will truly last a lifetime! About 6-8 years ago, I bought a clear file box from Container store. It was especially unique because the box lid could be opened from either end (just like this box), except the lid had a unique "spine" in its design, to where you could open both sides simultaneously-- without the entire lid coming off. While nobody would open the lid from both ends at the same time, this design feature meant the lid would stay attached, even when you were opening 1 end & accessing a file located nearest to the middle of the box. I thought this box lid was just like that one. But, alas, it is not.. With this box, when you open the lid from one end and need something filed towards the center of the box, the entire box lid seems to come off and it requires 2 hands to attach-- not very convenient. Still a quality file box that will last forever though, 4 out of 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from File box the baby can't get into! I bought two of these boxes after my 1 year old kept pulling files out of my open-top file crate. This box has an easy open lid that you can access from both sides. Plus, it stacks nicely if you want to put another one on top of it. I highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps all my files organized! Easy to push folders, re-organize, door flaps open on each side, stackable on same sized file box, easy to transfer, transparent [can see file folders colors and labels], and absolutely love it! Whoever made this is a genius.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from File Totes These are excellent. I use these instead of regular file cabinets. Although somewhat heavy when full, they are fairly easy to move around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This box is nice for the price. At one point I was worried that it was a able to stretch and bend because then my hanging folders would fall off the track but it may have just been my oversized folders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Files Files Go Away! I moved from a house where I had 4 file cabinets to an apartment where I had none. I thought I could live out of a Banker's Box. Wrong. This file system is easy to use, and stacked one on top of the other makes a nice extension for my desk top. It's easy to access frequently used files by just opening the one end, which makes it perfect for this new, tiny space. And no more hassling with the cardboard Banker's Box. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from File Organizing I needed a filing system for a new business that didn't justify buying a filing cabinet (yet!). This file storage box was exactly what the doctor ordered! Much less expensive that alternatives that I had seen. Between the ridges for hanging folders and the dual opening top, this file tote fit my needs perfectly. And when the business grows, I'll just add another box and stack them up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from art organizer I purchased three of these boxes to organize my three kid's school art/papers. I love that the top opens on both sides, so it makes adding items while on a shelf much easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Calling all quilters and crafters! This box is perfect for storing fabrics and craft items. I fold my fabrics and store by category. I can open the lid and thumb through my fabrics when selecting for projects. The see through box is perfect to display my collections. When I moved, it was convenient to not have to pack and unpack my many fabrics. My sewing room was set up in a snap!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great price but not solid construction I purchased this during the office sale. The price was great and the container was very spacious. However my main dissatisfaction was with the lid which was a bit flimsy. If you put another file container on top the lid will dent a bit more than I would like, so I am not sure how well these will hold up with a few stacked up on top of each other. Also the middle section of the lid can be lifted up because it is not locked to the body, so in the off chance that the container falls or rolls the lid will most likely come off and the contents fall out. But I will keep it because I am not using it for long term storage. I have a lot of files that I need to sort through over the course of several months and this serves that purpose well as an affordable sorter container that can be neatly put away. I like this solution better than heavy file cabinets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for long term storage My office has files that require long term storage - these boxes are perfect - they hold a large amount of files and are sturdy. much better than the standard cardboard boxes that break down after a couple years
Date published: 2012-03-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good file storage concept I like the split lid concept because you have file access without having to figure out what to do with the lid. It is convenient to see what the container holds without having to open and sift through files.
Date published: 2012-03-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect This oversized file box with a hinged lid is perfect. Rather than sliding the folders back in forth to reach what you need, you can flip the lid over the file you are looking for. It is also helpful to be able to keep the lid in place rather than taking it all the way off and setting it aside. I bought three! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal File Storage I've had these for several years now and they are as good as new. They are stacked 4 high and full of files and have kept their shape. I'm a little rough with them when stacking and they've only had tiny (not usually noticeable) scratches and likely from debris on my floor. I aim to be as paperless as possible really don't believe in buying furniture pieces for paper. The XL is ideal because legal documents and bulky mortgage stuff fit just fine.

What are the footprint dimensions of the inside bottom of the box?

I need to place a book that is 14"x20" flat on the bottom of the box. Would it fit and lay flat on the bottom? If not have you any suggestions for other boxes that would fit and give good protection? Thank you.
Asked by: Zenobia
Our X-Large File Tote Box has a footprint of 11" x 19", so it will not work for your current needs. Alternatives for you are shown below.

Can A4 files be used in this organizer?

Asked by: JimenaG
This file box would be too large to acommodate A4 file folders. If you're storing A4-sized documents, you could use letter-sized folders with the A4 documents inside.
