Tis the season for organizing. I spent a couple of hours yesterday organizing my office, and I have three rooms still to go. Yikes.
Anyway, you could buy your storage bins in the store, or you could make your own. Case in point, Awesome Sauce & Asshattery has a post on turning old diaper boxes into storage bins. All it takes is cutting the boxes up, gluing them together, and then covering with paper or other decorative material.
I especially like that since you are making your own storage bin, you can shape it to fit any of your organizing needs. I just got a big box yesterday, so I might give this a try.
