Rated 2 out of 5 Unsatisfactory
I have to agree with the other reviewers of this product. I had in the past purchased about 20 of these small boxes from Home Depot. They were fantastic. The printing and lettering on those boxes were all black. The new boxes are green and orange and each and every one of the 25 new boxes have a 1/2 inch gap when you close them. The gap is on the top and the bottom. They work, but you'll need more tape to seal them than necessary. If I was gong to purchase some boxes, take two minutes and fold one or two of them in the store to make sure you get the ones that were manufactured correctly versus the one with the gap. If you aren't careful, the box with the gap will separate and your contents will fall out. I like the small boxes because I can put heavy items such as books in these boxes and the box will still be easy to life. Be a cautious buyer and skip the defective boxes, you'll be glad you did.

I packed one of these boxes full with CD jewel cases and was still no problem to lift it. They are great and will buy 20 more for storage.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by packingup I love Shop Online with In Store pickup!
I've been packing for a move forever and I think I've purchased 50+ of these boxes, small and medium. The roll of bubble wrap and the packing paper are also a regular purchase. For these boxes, the price is right and with shop online / pick up in store, I can get more with no hassle. It's wonderful!
When I made this purchase it was Sat morning. I came to the end of my bubble wrap and walked over to the computer, placed an order for another roll, 2 packages of paper and 10 more boxes. Started my errands and about the time I arrived at the Home Depot parking lot, I had a text saying my order was ready. Walked in, the order was in a cart waiting to be pushed out to my car and I was done!

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Flamanar LIGHT DUTY AT BEST!
I bought a batch of these 'eco-friendly' boxes for our last move. They can't hold much weight, and easily collapse. Buy a 'regular' cardboard box at Staples and compare it to one of these. No comparison. Go ahead and 'pinch' a layer of the Home Depot boxes between your fingers. Easily done. Obviously the Home Depot boxes are much cheaper. I also had trouble with packing tape not sticking to them, and I was using the 'Scotch Shipping Tape' that Home Depot sells. So if you're looking for 'cheap boxes', then these are they. But remember that you get what you pay for, but sometimes you don't even get that much.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Brisnana Not the best idea for me
These boxes have changed drastically over the last few years. I understand that they are now "eco-friendly" and made in the usa. Both of these thing are a plus, but the boxes aren't as sturdy as they once were. There is a top and bottom gap when sealed and being older it's now too difficult to pick up the box from the bottom. With all things being equal, for me, the boxes at Lowes have handles which is easier for me to handle @ the same price of these boxes. If I only have verly light object to pack, these boxes would be fine.
