    If you dont mind if the box does not look pretty, I have found that pizza boxes work great. Pizza hut will let you have new boxes for a quarter or so.

    These are the exact same boxes I got at Michaels for $4.98 on sale. Had clear as well as colors. They are perf. for what you're describing. That's what I use them for.

    If you want a inexpensive way to store blocks go to your local pizzeria. The pizza boxes are perfect. They will usually sell the new ones to you for 50 cents to a dollar. You can write on them, stack them high. I have several. In fact, our one quilting store sells them for a dollar. The squares are a perfect fit.

    I use the ArtBin boxes with handles and only purchase when I have a 50% off coupon from JoAnn's or they have them on for 50% off. I also have some pizza boxes as years ago the guild I belonged to was able to get them for an extremely great price and sell them to members. They work great for finished blocks and can be stacked.

    Thank you so much for this information. I am a NEW quilter and have myself involved in 3 quilts, classes I have taken that I know have to assemble. Trying to figure how to keep all of this separate and "clean". Will be going to Joanns with my 50% coupon this wek! Love all the information I get from all you experienced ladies. Thanks again.

    I would like clear plastic, not too deep, at least 13" square. TY
    I just saw them at Costco. a bundle of 4 or 5, can't remember the count but they were only 19.99. They were assorted colors.

    These may be what I have, about 6 or so in a stand? I have 2, both 50% off at JoAnn's a few years ago.
    After 2 years with the same signature I have been requested to remove it. Bye

    I love pizza boxes. I buy them from our local pizza parlor for 50 cents each. I paint the tops with flowers, etc. and label the ends so that when stacked I can tell at a glance what's inside. I also bought some snap together plastic boxes from Wal Mart in the fishing section. Pizza boxes also make good memory boxes to store drawings from children/grands.

    Like some of the others, I am cheap and use the clean pizza boxes and label the outside with a stick on label. They fit under my bed very nicely since I don't have a sewing room. I get them from my local Casey's store and so far they have been free of charge, but I would gladly pay the twenty five or fifty cents as well. I have used them for the cut blocks, quilt blocks and partially finished quilt blocks. There is no end of uses one can use them for. I have even put fat quarters in one until I got a three drawer stand on sale at Wally World. I also use the little plastic boxes mushrooms, etc., come in. Wash them up and keep them on the table for scraps when I am sewing and a jillion other uses from time to time. Have even put the smaller cut quilt squares in them to store as well until I pull them out and use them in something. My two cents for the day.

    I went to the local pizza place (family owned and operated) to see if they would sell me a few large pizza boxes. The owner would not let me pay for six large boxes. It was his way of thanking me for eating many meals at his Italian Resturant. I was so thrilled!! The large are about 16X16X2 which is an average block size and they stack so neatly. Mary

    There are lots of options that makes you feel free to buy flat boxes. I can suggest that just go through any search engine and you can find lots of answers regarding your query. Hope I will help it out to get relief from your confusion.
