Thoughts on today's storage TSV?

What do you guys think?  Is this a good buy?  good price?  useful?  Are there other brands that you would recommend instead?

Not for me.  They appear a bit flimsy for heavy items.  I use clear plastic bins of various sizes with labels.  I've never tried them, so maybe I am wrong.

Re: Thoughts on today's storage TSV?

I like them, just don't need them.   I have 4 space bags that have canvas on the outside, the bag is on the inside.  I store 4 of them under the bed. They hold off season clothes.

 

I do not have extra blankets, linens, etc that need stored.  I have only what I need for bedding and do not like having 'extras' of things. If I don't use an item after x amount of time, out it goes.  I have yet to regret getting rid of anything. 

 

Any additional blankets that I have for winter use is stored in an antique armorie.  I am a minimalist..working on being better at it...

@moonandthestars I was interested until I measured the closet I was thinking of using them in...just not a good size.  Plus I would prefer it if they gave a set of one size and we could choose small, medium or large.

I want to organize some things in bedroom closets, bring some order and make it look good too, so I may go for this.  

 

I am going to take note of the measurements of the boxes first and decide how they will work in the spaces I'm thinking of.  Good idea! Smiley Happy  I also agree it would have been nice to be able to choose sizes for the sets being sold.

Re: Thoughts on today's storage TSV?

I love my mine. I got 2 sets them last TSV time (recently too, early summer maybe?) it was $39.98 on that TSV and I think it was a 5 piece (there was a long flat piece that fit under the bed). SAME product, this set is just has different prints. Although, I just checked and noticed they added a side entrance now. The more entrances they add it would seem you would lose some of the sturdiness.

 

They are roomy, you can go in through the top, or if they are stacked you can unzip from the front. I didn't check the dimensions of this set but if the same as last TSV you can fit a lot in them.

 

As nice as they are I would not have purchased them for $53.98 PLUS SHIPPING. That is quite a price hike.  I would have to check my slip but it might have been free shipping last time. (I would have to look).

 

They are sturdy. I got all my bulky winter sweaters into one and I love being able to see what I am looking for vs using a covered plastic bucket you buy at Walmart and have to dig throught to find what you need, or forget what is even in the bin.

 

It is hard to tell with pics online but mine are more rectangular, what I online see is more boxy. They may not be the same size as last time, they look smaller.

I'm not impressed by the price and don't care for any of the colors but I like the product and the access to the contents. I like this storage method where I can easily see and get to things I need.  I'd like a dark neutral color that would recede and sort of disappear.  Wouldn't want to use these as decorations.

Re: Thoughts on today's storage TSV?

I decided to make the purchase.  @Kachina624 I do agree about the price - it really is high, but I bought it anyway.  Wish at least it was free ship. sigh.  I also agree about the colors and patterns - some of them - most of them are just too much - at least for the spaces that I want to use them for.  I'm trying to create order and calm.  I bought the black and white - hopefully it doesn't appear busy in person.  Struck me as classic and in it's own way neutral, so here's hoping that's the case.

I bought similar storage on Amazon. Much cheaper, you can get any size you want for the space you need, and both brands I've bought have been very sturdy.
