Plastic Book Bins
I have been searching for those inexpensive plastic rectangular book baskets at dollar stores, and K Mart. Has anyone found them in NJ Bergen County area lately?
Please let me know if you have any ideas where I can check it out.

I think I'm going to take a trip out to IKEA for these bins:

I hope they're the right size!

golden love,

i have these bins and they fit chapter books perfectly. They have deeper bins in the same product line that I use for picture and non-fiction books (since they tend to be bigger). I have Rubbermaid dishpans that I can no longer find, so I bought the larger size and they are great! I love going with clear bins because I can change color schemes in my room and not have to worry about bins.

Here is a picture of them in my library (the bins on the bottom shelf with rounded edges are the rubbermaid dish pans, but all of the chapter book bins are the samla boxes from ikea).

I posted about these last week, I thought they were a good deal (under a dollar, free shipping, pickup at Walmart):

I love these bins! They have held up well for years now!

there are bins in the target ad for tomorrow: 5/$5 -- the shoebox type.

All times are GMT -8. The time now is 07:19 AM.
