Book Bins for just right books?

What do you all use for the kids individual book boxes to store their just right books? I have been using cardboard magazine holders but I think they look sloppy and end up being a mess. I looked for those plastic magazine holders that come in different colors but I couldn't find them anywhere.

Any suggestions?

Our system bought us a set of plastic book bins (after participating in a summer weeklong workshop discussing Lucy Caulkins Units of Study). I found them in the Really Good Stuff catalog. If you purchase more than a couple of sets the price goes down. I love them!

I shopped around for my plastic book bins and found that Steps to Literacy had the best deal. I think I got 20 for $50.00. I used my school funds to purchase them. I love them!!!!

Here is the link to the Really Good Stuff book holders. I also ordered them for my students and I have really enjoyed them! They are the perfect size and come in different colors.

WONDERFUL book bins that do not take up room!

I use 3 drawer platic storage tubs....I buy enough of each student to have one. They come out so they can take their "browsing box" with them and return it where there is an open slot!
They stack so they do not take up a lot of room!
LOVE THEM for everything....puzzles(cut off the picture and put all the pieces inside the drawer)...chess/checkers board...paper for writer's workshop(lined, unlined, lined with picture at top
I just label all the drawers!

You can get them at walmart and target

This company has wonderful products! I bought book bins from them this year and have to keep buying more for the growing classroom library! My next purchase will be the taller ones that binders and books can fit in for RW.
Momof2cuties - thanks for mentioning that site! I'm checking it out right now.

I just completed a purchase order from my school for classroom library books! After I ordered my book bins they sent me a cataloge. I think you can request one on the website.

I have limited space in my room so I purchased the over the seat chair pockets at...good stuff and then put their books in a plastic bag. There is no movement needed for them to grab a just-right book any time they have free time.
