Tough and easy to use
This is my go-to storage for kids supplies / crafts / coloring books. See through, firm seal, easy to shove away, easy to wipe down. Only 4 stars because after a few years, the lid has warped. But it sees a lot of use from little hands who aren't that careful with it.

    Dual use- as storage and as sneeze guard
    We use our three Sterlite storage bins as sneeze guard when family comes over for dinner. Since we don’t live together, it is difficult to be sure that none of us is asymptomatic. We can chat at our back yard and enjoy family together. See sample set up. Here I have set up for 2 but we usually use 3 Sterlite bins.

      Great Container, Terrible Lid
      I purchased several 56 Qt storage containers for which I primarily use to store clothing.  I move quite a bit, so they are better than moving boxes and the various color lids help to easily identify which container I need. My disappointment is that the lids are not as sturdy as the containers themselves, they lose their shape and they crack easily.   Not only that, but replacement lids are unavailable.  After not being able to find them in the stores, I checked the website with no success.  I don't like the fact that you have to buy a whole new container just to get a new lid. Surely there has to be a better solution to getting replacement lids or better yet making a better quality like Hefty or Rubbermaid. I like the storage containers, but I don't like that replacement lids are not available.

      Thank you for reviewing the Sterilite 56 Qt Storage Box. We regret the inconvenience experienced with the lids. Unfortunately, Sterilite does not manufacture extra lid. We plan our production one bottom, to one lid. We appreciate you took the time to pass this feedback to us,

        I like being able to see the contents so I usually go with clear plastic like this one. I also want them to be stackable like this one is. This particular design will not support a lot of weight. The lids a too flimsy. You can see in the photo the bottom lid is buckling. Several books in the containers were just too much weight for it.

        Im from Texas and my home was recently flooded during Hurricane Harvey. When me and my kids were evacuating, I needed to find something to put my cat in. So I took out all of my personal belongings that i had stored in this box and put my cat in it. To evacuate we had to walk through the flooded streets, i was so relieved when the box was just floating, at the same time i was carrying my daughter and i just couldn't leave my cat behind. This storage box was very sturdy and it kept my cat safe and dry. Im very thankful for the quality of this product.

          56 Quart Storage Box
          I use these to store my DSK (Disaster Survival Kit) supplies. They are see through so I can keep track of things I need to update. For example: Canned food supplies. Also, as more things are thought of, I can add or subtract from these storage bins easily. The tops are easy to remove, they stack nicely, and they are waterproof. They are easy to keep clean, and they fit neatly where they are stacked. They never dent or cave in, and stay put (they don't slide around or slip or fall over) no matter how many you stack on top of each other.

            poor quality for mushroom growing
            I was thinking that the totes would be able to last several years for mushroom growing, but after winter they're falling apart very easily due to how brittle they are.

            Thank you for reviewing the Sterilite 56 Qt Storage Box. Our storage boxes are meant for household use, and do not contain UV protection. With continued or prolonged exposure to the outside elements, the items may deteriorate over time.
              Would rather have spent a few more dollars on a heavier duty one. It's fine though. Wouldn't know...
              Would rather have spent a few more dollars on a heavier duty one. It's fine though. Wouldn't know if stacking something on top would be ok.

              I needed containers that were durable and clear to view items that I needed. I found these containers to meet my actual needed. Saves me time not to have to open each container to get the item or items I need. Thank you Sterlite for making my life so much easier.
