The Ultimate Plastic Bin – Nesting Baskets!

reg-17006

I love storage bins! But even more, I love storage bins that store flat and out of my way!

Stacks and Stacks has this awesome 3 piece set of collapsible storage baskets fits the bill perfectly! Use them for kid’s toys, tub toys, toiletries, linens, shoes, storage in your car, crafts, CD’s or Dvd’s, and so much more!

Graduated in size to hold a variety of items, the baskets are made of durable polypropylene in pretty purple and teal colors. Pop-up handles like a shopping basket make carrying them a breeze, and tuck completely away when not being used. There are also cut-out side wall handles which can be used to carry heavy loads.

These plastic storage containers can store away tucked inside each other while upright or flat for a combined height of 6″. Plastic bin sizes are: Small basket – 12″ x 8″ x 6″; Medium basket – 15″ x 10″ x 8″; Large basket – 17.5″ x 12 1/4″ x 10″. And at $36.99 for all three, it’s quite a deal!

No More Confusion: Plastic Bin Labels

I have a ton of plastic bins in my garage! I store my Christmas decorations, off season clothes, kid’s outgrown clothes and toys, art and craft supplies, my grandmother’s china and a slew of other stuff that I should probably go through. 🙂

I have written directly on my Christmas bins with permanent markers to identify the contents, but I don’t want to do that with some of the other bins as the contents will most likely change over time.

So I found these great little Bin Labels! They are little adhesive backed plastic envelopes that come with little write on cards that slip inside. You can easily write the contents of the bin on the card and place the plastic sleeve anywhere on the bin so you can identify its contents easily without having to open it! Change the contents? Change the card!

These are great for kids toy bins, too! You can even place a picture of the bin’s contents on the card for children who aren’t reading yet so they can be organized, too!

I picked these bin labels up at Stacks and Stacks dot com.

How would you use these Bin Labels?

Creating, organizing and labeling the kits can also be a fun activity for children: Use clear plastic storage bins to keep craft supplies easily identifiable and contained.

Plastic bins – the new catch-all for…well…everything!

 

Plastic bins are becoming the answer to many of our organizing issues. With many different sizes, shapes and sets we can custom organize anything, really. Some bins have wheels, some have holes and some have drawers. The options are endless and sometimes that in itself can become a little overwhelming.

I use plastic bins in almost every room of my home. Not only are they affordable, they are stackable and very easy to clean and reuse. Better yet, they are great for containing items that may have an odor or need to be water and pet proofed as well!
