    Does anyone have any websites where they shop for affordable classroom organization "stuff?" I'm looking for baskets for my classroom library. I've shopped at the Dollar store before, but they're not very durable. Thanks. :)

    They come in pink, purple, light blue like mine, navy blue, and lime green.

    The green ones in the pic are small and the purple is medium. There is a large size I did not get. I'll see if I can find a pic of another case.

    SWogal- the prices are 1.99, 2.99 and I think 3.99 for the large. The large is really too big to be used on a shelf.

    The last time I was there, they only had green and navy. I got mine last year. I need to buy a bunch more. They are very nice baskets. Not whimpy at all.

    Like I said all my green ones are small but they may be turned the wide way and look bigger. The two medium ones on the top are turned the wide way.

    Lemonhead...I bought the same baskets at Target. My baskets came in a pack of 3 for $3.48. They were on sale. Target has great baskets and they're very sturdy.

    I believe Target stocks those baskets every summer in various colors in their "college" section. I think they stock them regularly as well, but not in such a wide variety of colors.

    I came home with a couple of 3-packs of those small baskets in teal several weeks ago. They were on clearance at Target and I couldn't resist. DH couldn't believe it - he said "What else could you possibly put in baskets?" I got rid of our old bathroom baskets just so we could have a matching set - I think I have a problem. :D :whistle:

    I know Wal-Mart also sells similar baskets (I've only found them in white though) for comparable prices. They also have a small, medium, and large size. I use those for my books at school.

    I love those colors! I, too, saw them at my Target in the clearance section.
