One of my FAVORITE things in my room this year is my new book bins! I mean just LOOK at how pretty these are!
This is how my my library used to look.
The bins were $1 bins from one of the dollar stores. They held a lot of books, but they weren't very sturdy, always fell over, and were constantly cracking.
So I decided since I was moving schools, it was perfect timing t redo my library! I did a little Facebook survey of where people got their library bins...and did my research on the ones everyone mentioned.
My decision was easy.
So I got a TON of new bins! They are all over my room! These wonderful bins came from Steps to Literacy.
They are so sturdy. They aren't flimsy at all. And they are pretty big! I only had about 2-3 books (in all of my thousands) that didn't fit in it.
Not only am I using them for book bins, but I'm using them inside their team buckets. They will house their offices (test hiders), team folders, and the books they borrow from me.
I also have some that I'm using to story all of my supplies, materials, and resources I will need for the week. I used to use the drawers in my rolling craft cart or the pockets in my hanging pocket chart for file folders, but I really like how I can put bulky items in these tubs.
It took about 65-70 book bins to redo my whole library (and I had about 10 extra that I used NOT for my library shelves). And as you can see, I have quite the extensive library. ha! So you can really fit a lot in these bins too!
TWO winners will get 1 set of 8 bins - the colors will be orange, lime green, purple, bright blue, red, yellow, green, and blue.
