So you get a little leakage with these coolers, but not too much? When we
fill ours up everything on the floor ends up pretty wet (but that is full
to nearly the brim).

No one seemed to have any suggestions about coolers that don't seem to
leak. Has anyone found a good way to avoid leakage? Obviously if they
are less full, then there is less chance of leakage. I was thinking
certain coolers might be a little better than others perhaps.
