Milk crates are all the rage right now!
Okay I don't know if that's totally true but since they are so mass-produced, they are readily available. If you want your own, it should be no problem finding some.
Just take a peek behind the milk aisle at the grocery store and you'll see them back there all stacked up, doing their work.
Of course the logical thing to do with them would be to just use them to hold things but you can get more creative than that...
