      I much prefer the Rubbermaid Boxes to the Sterlite ones. I have some Rubbermaid boxes that I've moved with three or four times!

      You know back around 2001 when I was moving Target had Rubbermaid bins on sale and they were just about as cheap as boxes. So I bought a bunch of them. And they are better quality than the newer ones. The lids fit better and are stronger. I think they made the plastic thinner.
