I thought about saving the cute plastic containers that dog food come in. I think they would be great for small stuff. She's just started eating dog food again!!! HOORAY!! LOL

I like the spinach bins from Sam's - large size and have a lid but are lightweight.

I went on a road trip today with a friend of mine who had a van. I had found a guy on Craigs list who had fabric to get rid of. My trunk is packed full and have at least 15 large garbage bags full of fabric and 4 with stuffing for pillows. Many many yards of good quilting cotton and all for $225. He had so much left, but I didn't want it as I am not going to sew myself any clothes. don't have time for that. lucky I get to do some quilting.

I have stored fabric projects in plastic shoe boxes by Rubbermaid and steralite for years and never had a problem.

I use the rubbermaid and similar containers for lots of things. Everything in them are as good as the day they were put in them. Some things have been in them for years. I use to store fabrics in them, no harm done.
Good not to believe everything you hear or read.
