Small Smart Store Tote & Inserts is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was definitely needed I purchased the medium smart store tote for my husband and the small one for me. I purchased the inserts for both sizes. My husband loves them and I will probably be purchasing more for him. They are perfect for his collections.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my closet! I love these totes (and the medium totes as well). I reorganized my closet this summer, and the color wave totes are the primary solution. The labels are especially helpful and have made it possible for my daughters to keep the closet organized themselves. The totes are sturdy and can hold a substantial amount of weight, and the inserts and organizers are great for keeping small items separate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect!!! I needed storage for all my crochet stuff. This fits the bill. I can stack them and see everything I have. It helps me with all my projects. In fact I'm planning on getting more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small & Medium Smart Store Totes I use these containers to store fabric swatches for my business. They're very sturdy and snap together tightly with the built-in fasteners...best of all--they're stackable. I add more containers as I need them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very useful I bought 10 containers and found them to be durable and handy for sorting and storage of small items. I am going back for more. The lids snap on tightly and secure the contents.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great organizer/tote I needed a way to carry my jewelry line without it getting all messed up while being transported. This tote allows me to keep the jewelry in place, and I bought the deeper tote so I can put catalogs, sales slips and other supplies in the bottom.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile, we use these for tons of stuff We love these bins--we use them to store Legos, Playmobil, arts and crafts. They are roomy, we have them in all different sizes. The only thing I'm not crazy about is that the handles are a little hard for my toddler to open but my 5 year old doesn't have a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart is exactly what it is I have several of these boxes with all inserts that are available. I absolutely love it for my crafts and for my kids stuff. The close well. they are stack-able, see-through. Just truly smart organizational containers for everything and everyone

Rated 5 out of 5 by from COOOOl! I have been crafty in the last couple of years and have built up quite a collection of just about everything you can make something with, including, 12 books of scrapbook paper(I don't scrapbook). I needed a way to organize this stuff and be able to quickly grab what I need. I bought the Med, Lg and Xlg bins with every different size inserts and handled trays and I love it. Waiting on labels and 3 more tall inserts to finish. Pics to come when I finish

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Storage Solution Easily fits 12 coffee cups for closet storage so the don't fill up the buffet

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Jewelry Storage I used the small box for jewelry storage. Everything fits beautifully, is easy to see, is protected, and can easily travel with me if needed. The only reason that I didn't give 5 stars is that the inserts don't fit together as snugly as I imagined. The quality is great, though, and I really like that it is so customizable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT! I came in for one product but saw these & I'm happy I switched. They are perfect for storing samples I keep in guest bathrooms. The separators are just the right size for shampoos, conditioners & lotions. I originally bought 2 & went back for 2 more.
Date published: 2013-04-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy storage I bought 3 of these containers because they're strong enough to hold up to the weight of the polymer clay blocks I work with. I'm going to use 2 of the containers to further organize my crafting supplies. The containers fit pretty well into a large tote I already had. I'm so glad I found such sturdy containers. No other store had anything like them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT FOR ORGANIZATION I have these for embossing powders. They are wonderful for organization. My art room is so organized because of the Container Store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love These Things! These storage containers with changable inserts are so nice. I had an overwhelming number of items in my utensil drawer; everything from utentsils to chopsticks, to wine toppers, to medicine droppers. I was able to take out all of the items I rarely use, but don't want to get rid of, and put them in these containers. You can see through the top and identify everything, and the different size inserts work great depending on the type of stuff you want to organize. I bought a couple the other day, and I'm going back for more. Oh, and they stack well, too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Storage System! This portable storage system is fantastic for organizing my beads , jeweler's tools and sewing notions. I like it that they are stackable. Also the different size inserts allow for customizing the inside dimensions to suit all purposes. I have 4 totes with inserts that I have stacked in my studio. Everything I need is right there when I need it. Don't know how I ever lived without them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smart Store Tote I purchased this item to organize magic markers, and crayons for my grandchildren. It is just the right size, and they can grab it easily from the ELFA drawer I assigned to them.

Community Q&A

What is the difference between the regular "Smart Store" tote and the "Colorwave smart store tote.

Is it just the color of the locking handles and the pattern of the lid? Thanks! I actually have a lot of these for my son's Legos and I think I ended up with a mix of both types, but the lids seem to be interchangeable.
Asked by: LauraMaine
They are the same, just different colors. You can mix the Smart Store and the Colorwave Smart Store products

Dimensions

I see the dimensions listed, but I would guess that those are the outside dimensions. What is the length, width, and height of the inside?
Asked by: Anon2
The Interior Dimensions of this item are 10" W x 13" D x 4" H

May I order just the locking lid?

The handled tray with inserts works well on my shelf. I would just like to purchase the lid from the small clear Smart Store Tote to use with it.
Asked by: MtCabinAunty
The Smart Store Tote includes the lid. The lid is not sold separately. The Tray, and/or Inserts, can sit inside the related tote.
Answered by: lgmorris
Date published: 2015-02-08

When you place inserts in a box and place the lid on, does it seal the inserts so items do not fall out?

If I place small scrapbook items such as beads or stickers in the insert, put the lid on and then the box gets turned upside down, will the items stay in place? Thank you
Asked by: scouts
There is about a 3/4" gap between the lid and the top of the insert. Large items such as paint shouldn't spread to other inserts, but smaller items, such as beads, would spread.
