Storing Towels -- Outdoors

Here's an idea for storing beach towels this summer. We use them both for the beach and for the backyard pool, so I would rather not take up space inside for something used seasonally for one, and, secondly, that is not used inside.

I got a beige plastic storage bin meant for outdoor trash. The hinged top and latch makes it waterproof to allow the bin to stay on the deck outdoors. But it is also easily accessible for kids who need to grab a towel while outside. The bin actually blends in with our house color, but that's just an extra bonus. No matter what, the size and color are neutral enough not to be an eyesore.
