A tip for using those plastic bins: I use one of those wire shelves like they sell as 'closet organizers.' Turn it sideways and screw it to the wall so that the wires are horizontal. The lip on the back of the bins fits perfectly over the wires, and you have a 'rack' that lets you adjust the bin spacing in about 3/4" increments. I found my wire shelving at a garage sale for fifty cents each for two four foot sections.
Try to find the shelving that doesn't have the lip on the front.
