Looking for storage containers that can store 8.5 x 11 papers efficiently, that is without a lot of wasted space. Basically, I want to dump stacks of papers into boxes, temporarily hiding the mess and storing them more efficiently.
I've looked at banker's boxes but there is a lot of unused space with a regular piece of paper placed directly into it (not hanging in file folders).
Perhaps milk crates, which seem to have the correct dimensions for two stacks of papers. Three drawbacks: 1) Expense. They are not as cheap as cardboard boxes. 2) They have large holes through which things can fall out of. 3) They wouldn't hide the view of what's inside as well as a closed box.
A banker's box, ledger paper sized might be ideal, but I haven't seen any available.
