You can start off with bins you already have. In this case, they may have to be cleaned. As you can see, these pink bins were covered in finger prints.
Cut a dust wipe into 4 or 5 strips to avoid wasting full wipes. Use one strip per bin to wipe away surface dust or crumbs that made their way into the corners.
Put a little rubbing alcohol on a microfiber cloth and wipe the entire bin ( including the lid ). I found this was the quickest way to clean and make the bin look shiny like new.
Separate what you want in each bin. On a label clearly write what is in each container. Apply label to the side that will be shown when you put them away.
Stack bins in the order you want them ( keep stuff you always use at the top for easy access ) and put them on a shelf or in a closet. A little nook on the floor where they fit works too:)
