Hey, all. We are in the middle of a big purge/reorganization of our home, getting the floors refinished on the first floor, painting the whole place and staging it all to put the house on the market.

I have a set of wire cubes used for shelving (remember those?) full of Cropper Hoppers and a collection of about 200 or so kits. I plan to go through all the kits, keep the parts I like (paper and cardstock, mostly) and, I hope, end up with a big collection of paper and cardstock that will be easier for me to use. Leftovers from the kits will be sorted into lots and sold on eBay. My taste in paper hasn't changed much over the past decade, but I will probably be getting rid of a ton of embellishments.

I'd like to store each kit or partial kit in a 12x12 ziplock. I have a huge stash of these. But I'm looking for nice, stackable bins with lids of the right size. Not too wide, but not too narrow. I need the bins because everything is going to be moved several times, at least.

Any ideas? Does Rubbermaid or Sterlite make ones that work? Container Store? I have a few milk crates, but I'd really prefer something w a lid.

Thanks for any help or ideas

The cubical inside measurement on the Expedits are usually 13 1/4 height x 13 3/8 width.

Take a tape measure shopping with you. I bought a little one at Hobby Lobby to keep in purse or on key ring.

I have my paper/kits in CH vertical but I was looking for a few weeks back for some 12x12 and found these which can be used without the inserts. http://scraponizer.com/product-category/12-x-12/

Thanks! I'm looking for larger bins/totes that I can put kits into, to move them and store them until we get settled again.

I found a basket at Walmart that will work, it seems, but it's not very long -- about 15" worth of kits will fit in there, I think. I'm looking for something that's a couple feet long, at least -- a big, long bin.

Nothing appears suitable on the Sterlite or Rubbermaid sites. Surely I can't be the first person with this problem??!

I have a bin under my desk with paper. It might be Sterilite but I'm not sure. The paper is too tall to fit a lid though. Your best bet is probably one of those large 32/33 gal ones. I think they might be tall enough.

storage bins If you check the dimensions on them, you'll find at least some of them might work.
