When it’s time to use it, simply assemble it and put your stuff in it. Senbowe listens to customers. They asked for more storage space and Senbowe delivered.

This is a nice decorative storage bin for home, office, and loft organization. Each unit (pack of 4 boxes) come with boxes colored differently for visual appeal and you can choose from three different color options. The default color option consists of two grey colored boxes, one pink colored box, and one beige colored box.
Another highlight of this container is its removable dividers. Each box contains a divider which creates two compartments in a single box. You can either use it as needed or remove it if you don’t want to separate your stuff. Each bin also comes with reinforced handles to enhance portability.
The quality of this fabric storage bin is amazing.

Sterilite 16428012 6 Quart/5.7 Liter Storage Box, White Lid with Clear Base (Pack of 12)
This storage bin from Sterilite measures 13.63 x 8.25 x 4.88 inches and comes with 12 boxes and 12 lids. It’s a 6 Quart storage container that is designed to help you organize your home/closet quickly and have your living space looking neat. It is perfect for any individual with basic household storage needs.
It has a clear base that lets you identify the content of the box without straining your eyes. Its lid does not share the same feature as it’s an opaque lid. However, the lid is fits tightly to the container and keeps any item you put in it within the confines of the box.
If you have containers of the same size, you’ll be happy to learn that they are stackable, thanks to its indexed lid. This can help you save more vertical space while organizing your home. Examples of items you can store in this storage bin are crafts, accessories, shoes, and other small items.
It’s worth mentioning that this storage box can handle a good amount of weight when stacked as well. For example, you can store shoes in it and stack up to 10 boxes of those with no problems. They are also made in the US.
Lastly, Sterelite offers you two buying options. This one is a pack of 12 6-Quart storage boxes. If you prefer bigger boxes for larger items, you can get the 16 Quart variant (a pack of 6). If you wish to store these boxes high up, you may need to label them since their content will be harder to see. Many Amazon customers are satisfied with these boxes and seem to prefer them for storing shoes.
Even high heels can be stored in them by placing them side by side since the lid won’t close if they are placed upright. The lid isn’t super-tight, but it functions just fine.
Iris USA TB-42 12 Quart Stack & Pull Box, Clear, 6 Stack and Pull
At the time of this writing, this is the best selling lidded storage bin on Amazon with an average rating of 3.6 out of 5 stars. It comes in 4 sizes: 5 Quart pack of 10, 12 Quart pack of 6 19/32//53 Quart Combo pack, and 31.75 Quart pack of 6. It has dimensions of 49″L x 10. 98″W x 6. 53″H.
I’ll start by talking about a nice feature of this storage bin. It can be removed easily from shelving by simply using the pull handle near the bottom of the box.
You can stack multiple boxes on each other to create your perfectly organized modular storage solution. On the product page, you’ll find information on what size of boxes can be stacked. For example, the 5 Quart box can only be stacked with 5 Quart boxes, while the 12 Quart box can be stacked with 12, 26, and 53 Quart boxes.
The ribbed lid of this box doesn’t just fit the box perfectly, it also has a buckle up latch that makes sure the lid snaps into place securely.
As mentioned earlier, this product’s rating on Amazon isn’t that great. Some customers complain of it being cheaply made and not designed for frequent use. I think it’s more suited for long-term storage of things you don’t access all the time. However, there are customers who have also had good experiences with it.
Sterelite 19849806 18 Quart/17 Liter Ultra Latch Box, Clear with a White Lid and Black Latches
This pack of storage boxes includes 6 lids and 6 boxes which come in just one size but different sets of packs. You can buy a pack of 6 containers, a pack of 12, a pack of 18, and a pack of 24 containers. They all have the same size though. If you’re looking for a durable storage solution with clear boxes whose content can be easily identified, this storage bin is a good fit for you.
It is made of plastic and measures 18.13 x 12.25 x 7 with a see-through base and a lid that attaches securely to the box thanks to the heavy duty latches. The boxes are also stackable to help you save space. Two of these containers stacked together have a combined height of approximately 14 inches, so keep that in mind while making your purchase decisions.
The product dimension above is the outer one. The inner dimensions are L 14 1/4″ x W 10″ x H 6 1/4″. This is a measure of the lower base, which is smaller in size than the top. Therefore, you can fit more items at the top of the container. Still on measurements, the depth of the box is 6-inches. This means you can’t store hanging files, but it can accommodate many other items like rain coats, seasonal decorations, purses, video games, controllers, and more.
This is one well made storage bin that won’t crack under pressure. It may not exactly be waterproof, but it can protect most of your items from dust and water.
Sterelite 19859806, 30 Quart/28 Liter Ultra Latch Box, Clear with a White Lid and Black Latches
If you liked my #4 pick above, you’re going to like this storage bin as it is the bigger-sized version of the one talked about in the preceding paragraphs. This is the 30 Quart variant that comes in packs of 6, 12, 18, and 24 containers. So, if you liked my #4 pick and you want a tote of the same quality that can store larger items, you can’t go wrong with this one.
Its dimensions are 18-by-12-1/8-by-12-Inch. The indexed lids make stacking quick and easy. The rugged latches secure the lids to the bases of the containers for complete protection of your items.
Seeing as these are 30 Quart totes, it’s easy to get confused about how much they can store. Although they can store a lot and you’re likely to be satisfied, you can’t expect them to store up to 30 Quarts of solid items. Liquids can use up all of the space available, but there will always be some small spaces left when storing solid items. If you need more space, you can easily get another set of containers
These containers are quite large, and they are suitable for moving reasonably-sized and tall items like clothes and bottles. You’ll be quite happy when you realize that you won’t have to deal with as much cardboard, tape, and wrapping with these containers in your possession. If you wish to move really large items, you are better off getting larger-sized containers.
Amazon customers have praised this set of storage bins for durability and affordability. They last long, they are strong, and their handles really come in handy a lot during use. You can use them for moving, or to organize your home when you’re not moving stuff.
Akro-Mils 66486 CLDBL 12-Gallon Semi-Clear Plastic Storage KeepBox with Attached Lid
Whether you need a storage bin for your office, home, or garage, you’ll find this Akro-Mils keepbox a good option to consider. For industrial usage, it’s great for light to medium usage. For home usage, it’s nothing less than perfect. You’ll find it useful for both, but extremely useful in your home. It uses durable hinge pins that span across the length of the box, so that lid will be staying in place for as long as the box is used.
Seeing as this is a really large box with a 12-Gallon capacity, it’s a good thing that Akro-Mils split the lid into two lids that open to the left and to the right and then merge when closed to form a complete cover. I know you’re already wondering how the storage bins work with each other. When not in use, these containers can be nested into each other with no limit as to the number of containers that can be nested. To nest them, the lids have to be open of course.
While in use with the lids closed, they can be stacked on each other. This keepbox is made of industrial-grade high quality plastic. This type of plastic is not only durable, but transparent as well. However, it’s not as clear as the one used in the other storage bins reviewed above. This one is semi-clear, but you can still see through it, so nothing to worry about.
Handles are very important in a box this large, and this box has them. The handles are strong, ergonomic, and molded in. This means they form part of the plastic structure rather than separate handle attachments. Therefore, you shouldn’t have any trouble lifting or carrying the box. The lids on this keepbox can be secured with a padlock or wire tie, and its textured bottom makes sure the box doesn’t slip.
This storage container has a 12-inch long width and 15-inch long height. It’s a great option to store seasonal items, heavy pots/pans, glassware/breakables, etc. Getting this keepbox means you won’t have to purchase multiple boxes as the items you would usually store in multiple boxes can all be stored in one big box. The box is also somewhat air-tight. This will prevent pests from living in them.
Sterelite 70 Quart/66 Liter Ultra Latch Box, Clear with a White Lid and Black Latches
At this point, you’d think you had seen all the lidded storage bins from Sterelite, but they are so prominent that you’ll be seeing more of them. This Sterelite container has a storage capacity of 70 Quarts and measures 26.13 x 16.25 x 13.5. It includes 4 clear totes, 4 white lids, and black latches. If you want more totes, you can go for either of the 8-container or 12-container options which cost more accordingly.
The latch is attached to the base and provides a secure covering for all of your stored items. The walls of the containers are thick, which means more protection for your items. Aside from being clear so stored items can be easily identified, the storage boxes are also stackable to minimize the amount of space used.
Now that this storage box has been introduced, it’s time to talk about experience. First off, some customers who bought this storage bin off Amazon have complained of it arriving broken. However, this has probably been fixed by Sterelite as there are no recent reviews that mention this issue. Also, if your does arrive broken, Amazon will quickly replace it without any fuss.
This storage box has mixed reviews regarding its sturdiness. Some say it cracks under heavy weight when stacked, while others say it holds its own. Whichever you choose to believe, keep in mind that each box has a weight limit and those who complain that it cracks probably don’t pay attention to this weight limit, which is even more important when stacking.
Sterilite 14699002 40 Gallon/151 Liter Wheeled Industrial Tote with Racer Red Handle
This is a different kind of storage bin, and a very big one as well at 40 Gallons. If 40 Gallons isn’t enough for you, go ahead and select the footlocker instead. If 40 Gallons is too much for you, go ahead and select the 12, 15, or 27 Gallon variants from the buying options. This 40 Gallon storage box can be bought in packs of 2, 4, 6, and 8 depending on your needs and budget.
This storage bin is larger than the other ones mentioned above. It’s an industrial tote, so it’s definitely going to be stronger and more durable. It measures 35.5″ L x 21″ W x 17.5″ D which is quite large. Its size is one of the reasons why it’s great for not just storage but transportation of your items as well. It offers a great deal of protection and keeps your items secure during transportation.
One unique feature of this box is its wheels. It has two wheels that make moving the box from one place to another very easy. You won’t even have to lift it, but if you prefer to lift it, you’ll find the convenient flip-out handles very handy. Its left and right latches lock to keep the lid in place, and the recessed lips on the lid help you stack the boxes securely. You can also secure your items using the key holes in the storage box.
The box is black in color, as well as the lid and the wheels. Only the handles have a different (red) color. They are all made of polyethylene material which is known for its resistance to cold temperature, which makes this great for storage in basements, garages, and sheds. This storage bin is the perfect storage solution classrooms, PE classes, sport programs, and more.
This box is also great for moving bulky stuff like camping gear. They will aid you greatly in moving items to your new home, moving tools/supplies, and any other large items that can fit in. As mentioned earlier, there’s a bigger version if you need more space. The recessed lips on the lid means the lid may collect rainwater, but that shouldn’t be an issue for most people because the water won’t get into the container.
Iris USA TB-17 19 Quart Stack & Pull Box, Multi-Purpose Storage Bin, 6 Pack
Whether you want a black or a white storage bin, it’s worth taking a look at this Iris bin. There are 4 size options to choose from – 5 Quart, 12 Quart, 19 Quart, 32 Quart, and 53 Quart. It also comes in packs of 6 or 10 boxes. This is the 19-Quart 6-pack box with dimensions of 15. 38″L x 12. 38″W x 9. 63″H.
This modular and durable bin from Iris are designed for home storage. You can use them in your kitchen, garage, or any room of your home. It has a molded built-in handle that can be used to remove it from any shelf easily. The bin is somewhat sturdy, despite being made of plastic. There are latches attached to it which keep the lid secure when attached. The boxes are also stackable and have inner dimensions of 10. 0″L x 8. 75″W x 8. 8″H.
One of the advantages of purchasing an Iris storage bin in the Stack & Pull series is the ability of these boxes to stack neatly on each other, even if they are not of the same sizes.
Although I think this is a decent storage bin for the price, many buyers of this product don’t think so. It appears that Iris used to produce thick and high quality sturdy containers but they’ve replaced that with cheaper plastic material that isn’t quite as durable as the one previously in use, probably to cut down on manufacturing costs. I recommend you read the reviews thoroughly so you can make an informed decision regarding whether this is for you or not.
Perhaps those customers who complained had overly high expectations, since there are good reviews mentioning how sturdy the box is as well (it’s a 4/5 stars rated product. Overall, it’s a nice clear box for storing stuff. Although it’s not good for storing old files, you’ll find it useful for many other purposes.

The texture of the material is similar to jeans and it’s pretty well made.

Unfortunately, there are no size options available. You can only purchase more boxes of the same size if you need them.
