After wanting one for a couple of years for the cabin, we finally picked up a deck box today.
After looking around at a bunch of places and finding ourselves unimpressed with what $100 will get you, we decided to get a Rubbermaid Roughneck Jumbo Storage Tote for $20. I realized that I didn't want the kids to get into it and the racoons often wreak havoc at Arlington Beach. The last thing I wanted to do was buy $100 wicker deck box and have something eat through it. It's big enough to keep balls, nets, and outside stuff out of the way and organized and cheap enough that if it gets wrecked, I won't feel bad about it. Plus, this is water proof and the fake wicker boxes are not.
Once we close the cabin up for the winter, it will come inside so as long as I can keep Oliver off it, I can't see it taking that much abuse.
