Best place to buy bins/trays/caddies/boxes?

I'd love to take a poll of the best places to shop for a good selection of plastic bins, drawers, shower caddies, locking containers, etc...

I thought IKEA would be Camelot, but it was not. It truly lacked for good pieces for my 1991 Scamp. Norm gets his bins from Walmart, but I'm hoping for other alternatives, preferably slightly more modernly designed baskets, shower shelves with suction cups, etc... What retailers have you found to have a good selection of that sort of thing? Does the Container Store live up to its name? Is Target spot on?

We bought a couple plastic drawers that mount under a cabinet or shelf from Camping World. Bought a couple wire storage baskets from Home Depot and mounted them on drawer slides and put them under the rear bed.

I've got bins in the trailer and some drawers in the house and garage. I usually buy from either the dollar store or Storables.

Once in a while I'll find something at Wal-Mart or in our location there's Bi-Mart.

Dollar Tree has a surprising good selection of useful stuff. Of course it is cheap, but it tends to be small and light.

Check the clearance sections, especially in Staples, Walmart, Target, and Bed Bath & Beyond. Also the bath sections of HD or Lowes. Staples usually has a few bits that might be useful, depending on what you want to store. I also check the auto section at the discount retailers, and the tool-organization section of Sears, although every Sears store I've gone to in the last couple years looks like the last day of a going-out-of-business sale. My wife has gotten some great storage ideas from Japanese housewives' blogs, but some of the containers they re-use are not available here, like square 1L bottles. If I really need a certain thing that's not readily (and inexpensively) available, I'll fabricate my own.
