My favorite all-purpose catch-all is the bussing tub! These are grey
plastic rectangular basins from restaurant supply stores. They are used to hold
dirty dishes after cleaning off tables. I have used them to hold art
supplies de jour or store student portfolios (legal size file
folders) by table groups. The tubs also nest and stack, which is
nice. The best part is, they cost about $2.50 each. In California,
we have a retail party and restaurant supply chain called Smart and
Final. I'm sure there is an equivalent store near you. Good luck!
