In the ally behind the convenience store, or gas station, that is, for "milk" Crates.



For Storage Crates, the home organization section of most big box department stores like target, Home Depot, Lowes, or Staples or Office Max.



You probably weren't looking in the right department...Look in Office or Home Organization...

Check your nearest "Dollar store". The one near me had them for $1. Hard to beat that price. Also check craigslist. I have seen them on there for about the same price.

I asked a C store clerk. Got several that were left behind by an old distributor that the new distributor wouldn't collect.

I haven't had any problem with mine from the Dollar Store, but I don't lift them by the handles...I place my fingers through the openings. I don't trust the handles.

To be fair, in California, possessing milk crates is illegal and you can be fined.

Just warning you.
