    Anyone know where I can purchase plastic book bins online for my classroom library? I also don't want primary colors. I'm hoping to find bright blue, lime green or any type neon colors. Thanks!!!

    It's close to what I'm looking for just too expensive for my taste. I'm being told dollar stores is where I should look. I was just hoping I could order online.

    I got mine several years ago from Dollar Tree. They've held up well!

    If money were no object, I would have the boxes from Really Good Stuff. Heck, I would have everything in the catalog.

    But I live in the real world. Mine came from Dollar Tree and they are lime green. They have held up remarkable well. If you really need to order online, keep checking their website. It changes frequently. You just have to order a large quantity. Good luck!

    I went and got 2 different types from a bunch of Family Dollar Stores (it's in the dollar tree family of stores)

    Approximately how many bins do teachers use for their libraries?

    One set I got 40, the second set is 45 bins. I like the second set better because they are solid (no holes) bins. Wondering if I should get more...I say better to have more than not have enough. Lol

    I only ask because I want to be more consistently matched with my bins. Last year I had more than 64 different book bins the teacher before me left behind, labeled and organized in 5th grade spread over 4 book cases and then some...

    We don't use Basal Readers, we use TC curriculum which has the kids shopping for books so have a large selection of books seems about normal around here.

    Family Dollar!

    I found some bins BELLA brand that are blue. I love them. No matter what colors I use later the library will stay blue with those bins. They're wider shoe box bins and can hold a lot.
