Any recommendations for storage cases?

I have 3 plastic bins holding motor, electrical, and rigging parts. The problem is that they are just undivided bins with non transparent kids making it difficult to identify and quickly grab needed items. I ws looking for bins tonight at Wally World that would let me set dividers and close with a transparent lid. About the best I could do was a two sided tackle box costing about $25.. Being 3 I was hoping to spend significantly under $75. Anyone have any cheaper suggestions for organizing parts and such?

Try Lowe's. They are closing out the "Snap-Wear" containers in two larger sizes @ $2.49-2.99 respectively. A store near you may have some? The smaller one is 2.6 litres,8L X 6W X 4.5 H. The larger is same L X W but 4 litres and 7" hi with a section in the top that snaps open seperately. Gasketed lids and four sides snap locks. Neat gear!

i have small rectangular clear boxes i got at big lots. They are very stackable and have locking lids. Works nice. About 14" X 9" X 5" . I'm able to stuff them in small places.

Re: Any recommendations for storage cases?

I've found that rigid boxes and my curved boat don't go well together. I've gone to tool bags, and soft coolers for storage. The coolers are stiff enough to hold their shape and stay open but flexible enough to stuff into a curved small locker.
