Individual book bins?

I've decided to break down and buy a class set of books bins from either reallygoodstuff or stepstoliteracy. Does anyone have any opinions on which is better? Do I really need the ones with the pull out tabs, so they don't tip? TIA

You don't really need the ones that don't tip - that would be a plus - I just went with the least expensive!

Ikea has them 5 for 1.99
they are made of cardboard, but its cheap, easily replaceable and the kids could decorate to make it their own.

I use these from the Dollar Tree. One Dollar. Going on their fourth year. They work great.

One dollar.

The ones from Really Good Stuff can tip over. But I would get the ones without the tabs and teach the kids to be careful.

I have had the really good stuff ones for a few years. Have not really had a problem with tipping...only them getting dumped out when we use them with our reading buddies upstairs.

I also use the Ikea book bins! Not very sturdy... but the kids love to decorate their boxes with their favorite book characters, etc.

Dollar Tree baskets

I'm using bins for the first time this year. I have used ziplocs for the last couple of years...time for a change! I found these great collapsible bins at Dollar Tree. The come in yellow, green, blue, and red.

I was leary of them at first because they felt a bit flimsy. I asked the manager to show me how to UN collapse them !! I told her what I was using them for and she proceeded to go to the children's book section. She took a PILE of books from the shelf and put them in the basket. We were both very surprised how sturdy it was! I bought 25 of them!!

The other thing I liked about them is that they will accomodate larger books and the sides are straight up and down. Some bins have 2 slanted sides which inhibits larger books from fitting.

Hope this helps!

We got ours at RGS and I love them! We've had them for years and they look like new!

I also use the baskets from Dollar Tree and they work fine. Really big books can make the basket fall over, but other than that they hold at least 5 or 6 books.
