    One of my coworkers told me that they have plastic magazine holders at Target with the back to school stuff. I have always wanted to have the book bins from Really Good Stuff but it would cost a fortune to supply my entire library with them. I found some colored baskets that work well the Dollar Store.

    I have never used these particular bins, but I just saw really similar ones at Dollar Tree without the labels. Not sure of the quality being only a dollar, but I figure if my kids break one or two it wont be like flushing all this money down the toilet. In the past I've noticed that kids tend to break things regardless of the price tag.

    I have the ones that do not have the supports and they are constantly falling over and the kids have managed to break the corners and even crack them (even though they look pretty durable).

    I actually just use Ziploc bags and am very happy with that system. It's cheaper, takes less space, fits a couple books along with their reading folder and is easy to replace.

    I've also heard of people using and liking ice cube trays which are sturdy and cheaper than the ones posted (although the posted ones are very nice looking).

    I bought my bins from the target dollar section. They were cheap, but lasted a good 4 years before any needed to be replaced. The problem is, that they don't have the same product the next year so you can't just replace them.

    I have had similar ones for over 4 years. They are still in good condition and will use them again this year!
