Sterilite Bins?

It's been a while since I've had a hedgie and when I did have her I had a wire cage. I'd like to try something different this time. What are yalls opinions on sterilite bins? Would you drill holes in it and leave the top on or just leave the top off? If you wouldn't use a sterilite bin, what would you use and why?

I've been thinking alot about using liners or shavings, last time I used liners but she'd always crawl under them instead of in her hedgie bag lol. I was thinking about using liners again, but I'd like opinions on shavings or anything else.

I'm now prepared and have a space heater and heating pads. My question with those is, if I do decide to go with the sterilite bins, will it be ok to put the heating pads under them?

If there's anything you'd like to add, feel free to! Also if there are posts on this already, sorry I'm still trying to adjust to the new forum lol. :D

I have a sterilite bin, and I just leave the top off. I use liners, and it's super easy. The hardest thing about using a sterilite bin is the heating- You have to have a space heater because heat emitters build up too much heat and heating pads can get to be too hot for hedgies. I definitely would go for it, they're super easy to keep clean too, and if you ever need to move the cage around you can just pick it up or drag it (which may not seem necessary to most people, but since I'm in college he gets shuffled around between my dorm and my house for vacations and such). Good luck!
