PVC storage box for mini bookcase, from the Warehouse. Extremely affordable. Lots of colours. Precisely sized for ubiquitous (and also cheap) mini bookcases. Durable PVC front.

Stackable baskets from Briscoes. Practical plastic, but quite stylish. Available in various sizes from A4 in tray to big 500mm baskets that work well in a linen cupboard to keep piles of manchester separate.
Amalie pull-out organiser from Howard's Storage World. Fridge/freezer/pantry organisers like this are becoming more common and affordable from storage retailers. They are life-savers in small or awkward spaces like upright freezers.
Acrylic see-through shoe boxes from Howard's Storage World. I store all my seldom-used shoes in these, on the wardrobe shelf out of the way of daily use. You can easily see which shoes are inside, but the frosted design tones down the riot of colour.
Italio flexi tub from the Warehouse. I use these tubs instead of laundry baskets, and they are also pretty handy for quick decluttering jobs, blitzing through tidying before visitors arrive, or anywhere you'd need a boring bucket. The shape is not practical for, say, permanent toy storage in the living room, but the lightweight, flexible design is a winner in the laundry.
