Where to find Rubbermaid Wrap N' Craft for RODI storage?

Does anyone know what stores in Southern California currently carry the Rubbermaid Wrap N' Craft 33in Vertical storage containers?

Melev uses them for RODI storage and it looks like a great idea however I can't find someone that sells them.

When I went looking for these for the same purpose, I had to wait until the X-mas merchandise came out to find any locally. If you can wait until right after X-Mas, they can be found deeply discounted (seen them as low as $2 last year).

I got 2 of them from Target. But I think you have to wait until X-mas time.

I would check Michael's craft store too... since it sounds like a crafts thing. What is so great about it anyway?

It's narrow and tall....which fits in some people's tight spaces.

I've successfully used pet food containers in the past for the same reason. Narrow and tall. Check at PetCo or Petsmart if you don't want to wait.

Try linens n things or Bed, Bath, Beyond. I've also seen them in Home Depot and Lowe's last year. They are available, but you're going to have to drive around.

I would call up various stores and ask if they have wrapping paper containers. You already know what you want, and they could either order it in or refer you to who has it. I know the first time I found it it was not during the holidays. People always buy wrapping paper because every month there is something to celebrate and you have to put that stuff somewhere safe.
