I, like you, hate to spend 30bucks for Brusso hinges. I have used the cheaper hinges from HD and Loews but I swagged them before installing on the box. By swagging, I mean that I put them in a vise and squeeze the leafs together so that the leafs are flat together. This way I can mortise them into the box frame and the box will close completely, all the way around. I like JT’S suggestion to use piano hinges instead of the individual ones.
