    Just wondering if anybody has any recommendations on where to get dependable baskets/bins for picture books. I need to get about 20-30 or so as I level out my class library, and I'm trying not to break the bank.

    I don't use them specifically for books, but Walmart has some sturdy plastic bins for about a dollar.

    Dish racks are pretty sturdy. I found some cute brightly colored ones at the dollar store for $1.

    I bought really sturdy bins from Big Lots. They were $3, but well worth it since there is practically no give in them.

    I found some pretty sturdy Sterilite ones there today for $2.27 each. It's the cheapest I've found in terms of durability, so I cleaned out two stores!

    For the students individual book baskets I use cardboard Ikea magazine holder. 5/$1.40 So just about 30cents each. For my library I use dollar tree plastic bins.

    I ordered a set of 32 from Dollar Tree. I've used them for 3 years with no problems.

    I like dishpans for picture books. Dollar Tree is my go to source.
