105 quart storage bins give the right amount of floor space, 360 square inches. I use 112 quart bins personally as it gives a little more space. Wal-mart has cheap storage bins that you can use for this.

My bin cage is 110 qt, minimum, bigger is better like Sm banks was saying. You want 360 Sq in for minimum. You can check out You Tube videos on how to make one yourself or I just took my lid to the hardware store & had them cut out most of it except for the edges & attach mesh with zip ties, they do labor & have all the materials in store.

Mine might be 110 qt cause the sides spread out instead of going straight up?

I think about the biggest suitable bin you'll probably find is 133L, not huge on floor space but certainly adequate.
Here's a few links, Amazon, plasticboxshop,
Any bigger will probably be taller rather than having more floor space which is what you want most.
