I had the same problem and I just recently built a cart to hold my small cut offs… I plan on adding some pvc to the sides to hold my thin strips and dowels. I put it on wheels so that it would be easy to move if it got in the way or I wanted to put somewhere else. That was a big problem with my old cut off bins, I would have to empty them just to move them. I also keep a couple plastic storage tubs which I put the pieces I plan to burn. It makes it real easy come fire time because all I have to do is bring the storage bin inside and fill my stove from there.

If you search on this site you will find some great ideas for carts like this. I used one single sheet of 4×8 MDF.
