Walmart book bins

Yesterday I saw colorful book bins at Walmart! They were five for a dollar, and in the store I was at they were in the section where office supplies were, by the craft supplies which is what I was actually looking to find.

They are plastic in red, blue, green, yellow and maybe orange? I was surprised to see them.

I didn't buy any and I didn't study them too closely. I just said to myself, "I never saw those at Walmart. I have to tell my PT peeps.".

They were similar to these:

What area of the US is the Walmart located that had these book bins- they seem that they would hold up better than the cardboard ones from IKEA.

Thanks in advance.

I've seen them at every Walmart I've been to (4) in the past week in AZ. They seem pretty sturdy and a great price.

I saw these in my Walmart & on Instagram from several people I follow.

The price I saw $ 10 for the set of 5 colorful book bins.

They look nice! Surprising move for Walmart, no doubt trying to undercut Target, who needs to get with it and come out with their stuff in good amounts if they don't want to be undersold. Thanks for sharing. I actually don't need any, so tempting, but no...They are a really great way to do your classroom library.

Not my Wal Mart!

I was at my local Wal Mart today and they didn't have any of these. They also had Crayolas for 50 cents a box, not the 25 cents per box someone else had posted about.

Stupid Wal mart!

I hate typing on my iPad, and really should proof read better. It was five for ten dollars. Not a dollar.
