If you find yourself going the box route this can be handy too. Boxes are lighter than bins, and can be recycled making it a little more green. In addition they can also be free. If you have the extra time go around to large chain stores that carry bigger items. Home depot, Meijer, Lowes, Sears etc. and see if they'll give you boxes. Many times they will. When I worked at a retail store we through away good sturdy boxes by the truck full. We'd give our boxes to anyone who wanted them. It saved us a trip of going out to the trash compactor too. Boxes tend to come in smaller sizes than the bins do as well so if you want things to be very organized you can keep like things together.
