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 cant take up to to much space...

Thanks guys! I cant really spend more then 90 bucks lol hopefully one wont be this much! im hopeing to get one before next week hope u can help!

thanks again!

home depot and lowes are awesome. My parents got mine from home depot or lowes i cant 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, dont 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.
