Costco Project Boxes, Clear Plano 5-Pack Plastic Bins


If you take a look at the price you can see that this is an asterisk item. This means that it will not be re-stocked by Costco or was discontinued by the manufacturer, so they will be limited and hard to find. I found these in the Bay Area, California & there seemed to be plenty of them. These storage items tend to hit the shelves around this time of year. Spring cleaning is right around the corner, so that’s when we see the organizational products. Costco.com doesn’t sell ANY storage boxes online right now, so if you’re looking for some, you’re best bet will be to search in-store. Make sure to check all the aisles, because they are easy to miss. If you can’t find these in-store, you can check out some of these other HIGHLY RATED project storage boxes……

  1. I hope Plano isn’t retiring the molds for these 14 x14 project boxes. I bought 20 of them from Costco and need more. At 14 x 14 they are a perfect fit for kitchen cabinets that get repurposed for the workshop rather than the landfill.
    I also discovered a super shop storage system using them.
    I had bought some through Amazon some “Whitmor Storage Cubes – Stackable Interlocking Wire Shelves – Black (Set of 6)”. I got them to build some portable carriers for garden plants in common gallon plastic pots. Perfect if they need to be watered. I built them as an open box 14 inch cube (you net five cubes plus a couple extra panels for doors(see below) by assembling them with hog ring clips commonly used for upholstery attachment to metal frames. My discovery was that four of the 14 x14 x 3+ Plano storage boxes from Costco are a perfect fit in the wire frame cube.
    And also note that a 6th Whitmor shelf can be added to the open end of the assembled cube to form a swing open door by clipping only one side to the open end of the “cube”. And a small padlock could easily keep “little hands” from getting into trouble. Or a simple squeeze clip of some kind.
    Now if I were thinking of packing them with steel nuts and bolts or other heavy hardware, I’d re-think the whole idea and certainly wouldn’t plan on stacking them on top of each other. Or use a lot more hog rings in the assemble than just 2 per joint. And about the little plastic clips that come with the Whitmore wire panels. I’m sure they were never intended for what I’m doing with their product, I certainly would not trust them for any use that might involve moving or transport of them with any kind of load. Maybe as a fraction of an inch spacer feet to keep them clear of the floor for water drainage or separated from dampness.
    One more thought on the original 14 x 14 Plano box. Small cardboard boxes cut open to a height of 3 inches will fit in the Plano box and can go a long way toward keeping small hardware contents from moving around, especially if you need to transport a cube loaded with 4 of the Plano project boxes.

    1. Thanks Ed! I haven’t seen these Plano boxes on the shelf in a while. I just strolled through the storage section of Costco & they had all the regulars, but not these Plano boxes. They may be available in other Costco’s, but not mine here in the Bay Area. I’ve had a lot of Plano tackle boxes &* storage items in the past & they were always great! Hopefully we see these for sale again soon. Thanks for the comment

    1. Ya. These are gone off the shelves at my Costco too. I knew these wouldn’t last long because they were unique. Keep an eye out as summer is ending and kids go back to school. We might see them make a re-appearance
