I use to have different kinds of storage.  Now i only use Raaco. There expensive but good and have always the same dimensions and you can always buy new inserts.


Wow! Those look great. Very organized. May seem expensive for initial purchase, but looks like an excellent long term organizational solution.

I love seeing and hearing about all the storage solutions, it helps me get ideas about my own solution.

Less spending, more building is my plan for 2012!
Get organized and build more is my plan for 2013!
Just build more is my plan for 2014! (Good luck with that!)
Neatness counts!

fred67 - I found some for under $1 also, so that is probably what you were talking about. I hadn't noticed them before though. What are your thoughts on the quality? They seemed kind of flimsy with the lid only snapping on the sides. The other similar sized sterilite has a more rigid shape because of the reinforced handles. The cost is a big decision maker though.

Well... they're not food storage quality, but I haven't had any problems, and I like how they stack.  I haven't dropped one, but I wouldn't expect a huge mess if I did, either.

Ultimately I'm quite comfortable with them, although I intend to eventually re-sort into my Akron mills and Stanley organizers.

The thing about these raaco cabinets is that if you run out of those separator inserts you just order them. And if you need to buy an extra cabinet next year you can stil buy them in the same dimensions.

I have several raaco cabinets (and a few of other brands) but I can't easily find the separators :/ I found a few once, but for more I had to make other ones myself by cutting a sheet of plastic.
