    Smile cheap plastic storage bins

    The other day I was at WM for a couple of items, one being a large storage bin. i like the ones that are 55 to 60 gal. I can lift them when full, anything larger gets to heavy. I found what I was looking for in the plastic container section. On my way to the check out was a Halloween display with containers almost the same size in orange, purple & black colors. Priced for $4.95 verses the $9.95 one in my cart. This will actually work better then the opac one I started out with as I do not have to worry about light fade.

    I have purchased similiar containers after Holiday mark downs.

    Moral of story look in departments other then astorage area.

    I buy orange for Fall decorations, red or green for Christmas decorations, lavender for Easter, etc. Then when I go in the garage I can bring in the correct decorations for each holiday without looking through the tub first.

    Pal,

    I like that idea of color coordinating the boxes according to season.
