Need some big ol' organizing totes... it's time to get your tote on! These are just two pull out ads for totes. Home Depot is sporting the purple 18-Gallon Tote for $3.88, 99cent 6.5 quart clear totes [that's the small shoe size].
Fred Meyer has the 18-Gallon Tote for $5. But they are showing one of my favorite totes: the Iris 18.5 Quart Sweater Box for $4.
I'm sure your local paper is full of these ads as well.
Here's what I look for in a tote:
1. Squared out- meaning it doesn't bulb or bubble on the ends. I like them flat and square.
2. Clear or White lids. All the color drives me bonkers because it never matches 'last years' bins.
3. Big totes... I like them all the same color-preferably a neutral so it doesn't scream at me when I drive into the garage...there's enough action I don't need the color noise of the bins to add to it.
4. Stackable. That was Stackable period.
