Good tack box?!

Hey guys I need some help!

I officually need a tack box perferably one that locks cause a lot of my stuff is getting stolen.

I can only pay by check!

Our tack room is about the size of a stall so I need something I can kinda store a horse blanket in, a grooming tote and a few bottles [mtg,flyspray mane and tail shampoo, and bit wipes.] A lunge line my bridle and maybe a pair of front boots for chance and a fly mask. And a lead rope and a few halters! And my helmet! But it can't take up to to much space...

Thanks guys! I can't really spend more then 90 bucks lol hopefully one wont be this much! Im hopeing to get one before next week hope you can help!

Thanks again!

Home depot and lowes are awesome. My parents got mine from home depot or lowes I can't remember but it's heavy duty plastic and it was cheap and can fit a ton of stuff in it, it even had little compartments built in and its lockable and water tight. It even has little compartments on the outside top so I can put stuff when i'm not using it and even has two cup holders on it! I like it better than most tack boxes, don't have to worry about it getting mildewed or ne thing if it gets wet or worry about scratches.

I got this GREAT 'tool box' from home depot I use as a tack trunk for shows. It's pretty big (it can easily fit my english saddle, grooming box, and a few other things, or ALL of my horse show stuff minus my saddle). It's made of heavy duty plastic with a metal handle that pulls out and wheels so you can wheel it around. And it came with a "grooming tote" that fits inside of it! It locks as well and looks pretty cool. I think it was like, $70?! I LOVE IT! It's so much better then all of the cheap small trunks from any horse related place.
