Try your neighborhood "buy nothing" facebook group, I personally have gotten lucky with bins and other organizational materials in the past from there.

We love the Ikea bin shelves! We have 3 of their 8 bin Kallak shelves throughout the house and 2 of the 4 bin ones. They are perfect because they last longer (and are stronger) than the ones at Target or Walmart. They can be used for a variety of things and each square is slightly bigger than a foot so any size bucket, basket, tub, or container can fit under that size.

You ask the million dollar question :-) yes, there are so many amazing bins. IKEA definitely has some nice ones and sustainable ones at that. I also look for the sustainable options like metal, bamboo, fabric, at places like the container store in bed Bath and beyond.

I try to stay away from the plastic ones as much as possible and. If one needs things that you can see through, then there are options like metal, woven baskets and labels work really well for helping people who need that visual assist support.

If you do end up needing some support around product suggestion, or available for consultation by video or in person at your home.

Top Tip - Don’t buy any bins until you have everything D cluttered and sorted into categories. Then you can know what types of containers you need and how many. It’s a huge waste of time and energy to buy those things before you have the rest done. And then if you buy too much you end up having to return it etc. :-)
