Full Bin Vs. File Bin: Which Stola Storage Bin Should You Choose?

About two months ago, we made a post comparing our Stola Overnight Tote to our Utility Tote to help you decide which one would be right for your life. Well, we’re back at it with the comparisons. In this post we discuss the differences in usage between our Full Bin with Lid and our Stola File Bin.

We know everyone has different needs, and some of our products will fit into your life better than others—or differently than others. So, we’re comparing these decorative storage bins so you can learn more about each one and how you could use it.

Both our Full Bin and our File Bin have so many different uses you may have never thought about. Read our comparison chart below to learn about what you can use these Stola products for, along with their unique features.
