You know, the kind that you use to store things around the house -- maybe 12" square?

I've been to a couple discount stores, but haven't found any.

Suggestions for where they might be sold? (Bonus points if you have actual knowledge -- not just a guess -- about where I can get one ... )

Thanks!

if you dont want to pay for them, just search the alleys behind restaurants.

Actually, I'd rather pay for one and have it be nice and clean and unbroken. Plus, I'm looking for a specific color .....

And, sorry I wasn't clear -- I'm really hoping to find something locally, rather than online/mail order.

Any other ideas?

Target had crates for sure, as recently as a couple of months ago - but I haven't been in that section of the store lately. They weren't on closeout or anything - looked like something they would continue to stock. They were the lightweight hard plastic with openings/holes in the sides, all different colors, stackable - sounds similar to what you're seeking.

I have also seen them before (awhile back) at K-Mart, Office Depot, and Staples. . .

You're very welcome, hope you can find them at one of those places (I love those things, too). . .
