It is a low cost hobby. It's the obsession that gets expensive! :)

You can't half-a$$ close them, they're either closed or they're not.

I found a L&L lid put on upside down once. For real.

I was keeping the cost pretty low until I hooked up doing events with Slick Kitty and got into making LTC's....The fun is worth the cost though!

It's very effective when closed securely. Unfortunately, there are many letterboxers who don't feel the need to close screw-top containers securely, so these boxes usually get wet inside sooner or later.

I plan on the inside eventually getting wet. That is why I put everything in plastic bags. I use the container as a hard shell to protect the plastic bags. The container also served to keep out bugs.

Unfortunately, those same boxers don't see the need to close baggies properly either. You'd be amazed at how often I've checked on my boxes and instead of the log book in one baggie and the stamp in another, both items are crammed into one baggie where they don't fit and hence the baggie cannot be sealed shut, and the other baggie left empty and just crammed back into the box.
