These No. 1 bestselling waterproof storage totes are down to only $5 each

They're huge and surprisingly sturdy, fans say: 'They have never ripped on me, no matter how much I stuff them.'

Traditional storage bins are great — until it's time to move them. When they're fully loaded, you need to put some serious muscle into transporting them to their "forever home." Often it's a two-person job, which means that retrieving things (think seasonal clothes) is a big production. Well, Amazon has a solution: Ticonn Extra-Large Storage Totes. Lightweight, durable and roomy, these tough bags zip tight to protect your belongings and, because they have handles, they're easy to move from spot to spot. With almost 30,000 five-star ratings, they're a clear win, and they're marked way down.

These waterproof bags hold up to 24 gallons of gear and have a zip top that can be fully removed. Built-in handles make them easy to hoist onto a high closet shelf, up to the attic or out to the garage.

Why is this a good deal? 💰

A pack of six 24-gallon Ticonn storage bags is down to $30 from $40, which is 25% off. Not too shabby — you're only paying $5 per bag. While this isn't the lowest price we've ever seen for this set, it's within $7, and now is a prime time to pack up any remaining bulky winter clothing and linens.

Why do I need these? 🤔

Think of it this way: If an IKEA shopping bag and a sealable storage bin had a baby, it would be a Ticonn Tote. So basically, it's a storage dream come true.

"They are basically large IKEA bags with zippers," said a five-star reviewer. A fellow fan reported that the durable material is even "thicker than an IKEA bag." The bags are also larger than IKEA's. They hold up to 24 gallons, where IKEA bags hold 20 gallons (and cost more per bag). They also zip closed, allowing you to seal in your stuff. They're waterproof and have a little bit of give, so you can smush a few into a small space. The zipper is sturdy, and a tag pocket makes it easy to ID what's inside.

When your bags aren't in use, just fold them flat and stow them under a bed, in a closet or inside a drawer; they take up barely any space.

What reviewers say 💬

Again, almost 30,000 Amazon shoppers rave about these storage totes, saying they're way more practical than cardboard boxes or plastic bins.

Pros 👍

"I wish I would have gotten these sooner," said a satisfied shopper. "These are a must-have for organization, moving and storage. Great size, you can definitely fit a few blankets and sheets in these. I bought these for in-home storage, but if you're moving do not hesitate to get these!"

Another happy customer is thrilled with how much they can hold: "They are so sturdy and have never ripped on me, no matter how much I stuff them ... I love knowing that the bottom won't fall out on me while I'm carrying them. They are sewn extremely well."

"I have ordered these three times, and use them to store deflated airbeds and their bedding, and tote camping items (tents, tarps, sleeping bags, clothing, dry goods)," said an outdoorsy fan. "Turned others at scout camp on to them. So handy to be able to put things in them and throw in the car or back of my truck! Plus it started to rain while I had these in the bed of my truck. When we got to our destination, items inside were still dry."

Cons 👎

While most buyers are in organizational heaven with these bags, a few say there's still room for improvement. "Zippers are of medium quality but decent enough," said one shopper. "Good for clothes, towels, bed linens or dried herbs. These are opaque. I should have ordered some with clear panels so I could see my clothes without opening them." (Scroll down for a worthy alternative!)

"Moving cross-city with these reusable bags instead of large boxes made relocating a two-bedroom townhome a breeze," shared another buyer. "The bags held up like new the entire time. My only complaint is that the bag handles are uncomfortable. You'll want to wear something like garden or Mechanix gloves if you're carrying full bags."

Shoppers say these handy storage totes are not only great for organizing but moving. Each bag has a clear pocket on the side, so you can label their contents.

Want to see exactly what you've squirreled away? These fan-favorite storage bags may be just the ticket.

"I actually used these for my grandson’s toys at first," said one happy buyer. "I liked that with the clear window he can see what is in each one. They hold an amazing amount of toys and are sturdy enough to carry around. I use the others for crafting materials, again amazed at what would fit and how easy it is to carry. I have also used them to store extra blankets. And when I went to move, I ordered a second set to pack clothes in. It made for a much easier transition."
