I picked up some bright white LED strips (75 LED's per 20 inch long strip) & used dbl sided 3M automotive body side molding tap to stick them to the inside lip of the bin - the strips can be cut or soldered together to allow FULL coverage lighting.
I built some shelves in for my bins and nearly doubled the storage space...and added lighting / coverage for the top & bottom shelves.
I used these
(they seemed cheap at the time) - but now you can buy a 17 foot flexible LED strip/roll (multi color if you wish) for less that what 2 strips cost.
In fact i used a $24 - 17ft strip
of the flexible roll for my outside awning lighting - its much better than the single incandescent bulb "porch" light and i can change the color (to eliminate glare or avoid attracting bugs).
