We all need more storage or at least that’s what I tell myself. These Dollar Store storage bins are perfect for the pantry, kids room or just about anywhere you need to keep stuff together.
The containers alone were just ok but adding the chalkboards to the front make it easy to tell what is in each bin. For only $2 you can’t go wrong. You can find the chalkboards in the school supply section at Dollar Tree. They have the chalkboard area on both sides.
How many times do you have to slide a bin out to see what’s in it? Yeah, me too!
When not in use, you can stack the bins. Seriously though, won’t they always be in use!
Supplies needed to make chalkboard bins:
The bins and chalkboards were $1 each and I already had the twine. They do have several options for twine at our Dollar Tree, in case you need some.
I flipped the basket over and marked the spots that I needed to drill for the twine.
- Drill holes.
- Thread twine from back to front and tie a knot, do the same with the other end going horizontally across the inside of the basket and tie a knot on that side.
- After tying knots, trim excess from the twine.
Cheap storage bins can be found at other stores too, like Dollar General and Walmart. Adding the chalkboard makes them more stylish and useful. Finding the perfect storage containers can be a challenge when you have to keep your budget in mind. I hate spending a bunch of money on anything and the price of these is right up my alley.
Use chalk or chalk pens to write what each bin contains.
Simple, inexpensive and useful Dollar Store storage bins!
