Platinum elfa Mesh Start-A-Stack
Great Gift for College Student
My daughter won the Platinum Mesh Start-a-Stack at your college night event. We purchased the sliding file attachment so she could keep her files organized and in reach. The drawers storage can be used for various items.

I love this mesh drawer. It can easily be assembled, stacked, and has countless uses. I have four so far.

Great Storage Solutions!
I have 2 of these in different sizes and wish I had a couple more. They are incredibly sturdy, come in a variety of sizes to fit any space, and they really are everything all the reviews say they are and more. Easy to put together (don't be intimidated, it's not as hard as it looks# and you can get different size baskets to fit your needs. Wouldn't recommend getting the short baskets unless you have a specific idea in mind for using them #works good for scarves) because they really aren't tall enough for many uses. One hint--make sure you use the back stops because otherwise when you shut the basket, it goes flying out the back side. I recommend getting the top for it as well so that you actually have a table top to use and it can withstand a lot of weight. Wheels are great on these and it rolls easily. Worth the money,and if you get it on sale, it's even better!

Ordered this as a 7 drawer in silver for my craft punches that are very heavy... fits great under my work space and items are visible and drawers are sturdy. I can pull a drawer out and use the punches easily and efficiently. Love this product!!

Our garage was messy and cluttered, cheap plastic drawers had contents falling everywhere! This system is fantastic!!!

easy to assemble
This is the first elfa product I've purchased and I love it. Not only was the box light enough to carry it was so easy to assemble. My 6 yr old grandson did most of it.

This is the second stacking shelf unit I have purchased made by ELFA. It is well designed. It looks great too. I just wish that the little white pegs were more substantial. They have a habit of getting lost over time.

I moved into a new house in Aug and for months have been trying to find a solution to my pantry. The 4 shelves were too deep and difficult to see what I had in them. I called Shelf Genie to come in and put in sliding shelves but they were going to charge me almost $2000 for 5 shelves. I could not justify the cost so I kept looking. But I did not want to put bottom mount sliding shelves on the already warping shelves in my pantry and I could not find the right size side mount shelves. Then on a whim I decided to see what I could find at container store and the mesh start a stack shelves were perfect! I love the ways these shelves fit. They are nearly impossible to tip over and they are very sturdy. One drawer is even full of cans and it holds them just fine. This $180 unit saved me a ton of money and Iâ¿¿m really happy with it.

We ended our pantry nightmare by adding two stacked sets of the Platinum elfa Mesh drawers to our pantry. Because our pantry has a bi fold door, we were unable to store items and have access to them on either side of the pantry.
We were able to put a set of the drawers on each side of the pantry under the original shelving which allows us to pull out the drawers giving us access to our stored items. This also gave us more room on the original pantry shelves to store more items.

Easily assembled. Drawers slide readily open and closed.

I recently converted a small closet to a dry bar. After installing the countertop and mini-fridge underneath, I had a small space that needed something?? The stack shelf with rolling castors fit perfect and now holds extra glasses, ice bucket, cocktail napkins, and more. I'm very pleased.

Small design flaw, we'll see how long they last
I purchased these for clothing storage in lieu of dressers for our older boys. They are easy to assemble, look great, and are highly modular. They are also very pricey! These boxed kits (instead of purchasing them piece-by-piece we bought them in-box, there was a slight price break on them in the box) come complete with drawer stop pins. The pins flip and slip out quite easily. I am considering using a rubber or tapered plastic peg of my own to replace the small tack-shaped pins that come with them.

Best drawers ever!
Have purchased my first set of these mesh drawers and will definitely be using more in other places throughout the house. They are sturdy, hold a LOT and fit in closets so well. I highly recommend these for any room in your house that could use some organization.

Platinem elfa Mesh start-a-stack
I purchased this for my mother, because she is disabled and she could not use a regular dresser. She couldn't open the drawers, so I added a ribbon to the drawers, so she could pull on them to open the drawers and be more independence.

Platanum Elfa Mesh Start A Stack
Love this product. Use it on wheels in our kitchen. So handy ... can store anything. I store vegies and our plastic containers in ours. LUV IT!

I want more!
This is the best storage system! I ended up doing the customization and getting a 10-runner version. We live in a really tiny house and wanted something that would give us more storage without taking up tons of room. This was perfect, because it's tall without being too wide. It fit right in the space by my desk and I was able to store office and sewing supplies in it--things I didn't have a spot for before. I'm really frugal (my husband and I are both students, so we have to be!) so I hesitated spending the money at first. But it has been worth every penny! It seems high-quality and well constructed, so it's going to last, too. Plus putting it together was really simple. It probably took 10 minutes, if that. I think we'll be saving up for more. I would love to get one of their desk systems to replace the clunky one I've got right now!
I recommend this to anyone and everyone!

Love this product. Everything I needed was in tunic and it only took a few minutes to put together. Fir perfect in my sons closet. Drawers have lots of room and slide easily. Going back to get another one.

Great Space Saver!
We bought these on our first trip to the Container Store when we were getting ready to move into a South Philly Rowhome without a lot of closet space. We're so happy with the purchase. We've been able to fit a lot of clothes into the drawers and it's utilized limited closet space really well. We're going to buy one for my daughters' room next. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!

This is great for organizing the stuff I had scattered all over.

Nice but could be improved
I am happy with the end product, but this product should really come with some instructions as well as plastic feet cap. Although easy to put together, there are some small things - like the specific side that the rails have to be attached on - that you only learn by watching the video online. This kind of information should be included as instruction. Also, it was annoying to have paid for this to be shipped only to find that I have to purchase the small plastic feet separately.

I'm so glad I purchased this system. Was looking for something to put my extra accessories/scarves/purses in and this is it!!

Exactly what we needed
I LOVE these drawer sets and have reorganized all of our closets. We've installed full Elfa closets in four of our closets and I chose these drawer sets over the hanging drawers for their tight fit. I found I gained more storage space and am so happy with how they've worked out. They are sturdy and super easy to put together!

Flexible and Functional!
I purchased the Elfa stacks for my daughter while she was in high school for her closet storage, they worked great. Now they have moved to her college dorm room and are lined up beside her desk, they provide storage and counter space she desperately needed. They have held up fantastic, they still look great and will be with her for years to come...from teen room, to dorm room to her first apartment and then home. I really got my money's worth!!!

The elfa system functions well, looks nice, and does what it is supposed to. I needed to add the extra storage drawers to a walk in closet and these did just the trick. I would recommend them to anyone needing the extra storage or organization help, although they will take a few minutes to put together.

Perfect Bathroom Closet Solution
I got this for a small bathroom closet with a large open space in the bottom. Space has been underused for a long time. It has to remain accessible as it is where my plumbing wall access is located, so I needed a moveable solution. This works perfectly. Smooth gliding drawers, nice looking, relatively compact and add the casters - easy to move. Takes a bit of pounding with a rubber mallet to get it together, but overall it was very easy to build.

Indispensable Storage Solution
I purchased the widest mesh drawers available. It's a five drawer unit, graduating larger in depth from top to bottom. I use the shallow drawer on top for all my sewing/knitting notions. The remaining drawers hold my yarn and fiber stash. Without this wonderful storage option, I would have had nowhere for all my fibery goodness! I topped the unit off with the wood butcher block, which makes a good work surface and looks nice.

Scrapbooker's Dream Come True
ORGANIZATIONAL ISSUE: Before purchasing this drawer system I had scrapbooking materials from one end of my craft room to the other. My attempt to manage the chaos of paper, letters, stamps, ribbon, punches, scissors, writing utensils, glue, and more was done using various plastic bins and folders. Inevitably I'd be 20 minutes into a project and have already lost sight of where my materials were located as they were strewn throughout the room. This chaos made working on projects that were intended to be fun almost annoying and certainly frustrating. So one day I decided I needed a new organization solution and headed to the Container Store.
SOLUTION: After thoroughly browsing the store I decided these elfa drawers were it! A variety of width and height dimensions for drawers as well as being able to build the unit low or tall in height makes this system work for anyoneâ¿¿s needs. I built the tallest, widest option available as I had a lot of supplies to organize. Many of the drawers I chose were shallower so it would be easy to find smaller pieces of paper and embellishments without digging through deep bins. After all, the plastic bins I had at home provided a deep drawer solution already which was exactly the reason I ended up at the Container Store to begin with. One more suggestionâ¿¦ don't forget the cart wheels. You'll be glad you purchased them as it makes repositioning the cart out of your way so easy. My craft room serves multiple purposes so itâ¿¿s very handy to tuck the elfa cart in a corner when I'm not using it.
ASSEMBLY: The unit was very easy to assemble taking about 45 minutes mostly due to time it takes to pair up pieces. If you donâ¿¿t have a mallet, no need to buy one.. a hammer wrapped in a cloth will do just fine.
LIFE WITH THE elfa DRAWER UNIT: After organizing everything using the elfa drawer unit, I was even more thrilled than anticipated with the results. All my supplies now have a designated home with additional room to store future purchases. I highly recommend purchasing a system that will not only meet your current needs, but also provide room for new things. After organizing everything I was aware of things I was low on and started enjoying my hobby so much more that I couldn't wait to expand my tool set and buy new things. The upfront cost is well worth the benefit provided by this organization drawer system. Yes, plastic bins can work, but the elfa drawers will make you enjoy your hobby so much more. Take it from an organizational enthusiast.. Rest assured, you will not be disappointed with this purchase!!

Couldn't be easier to get organized!
This was so easy to assemble - only needed a mallet, which I don't have, so used a hammer wrapped in a towel. Primitive, but it worked. After assembly, realized that casters were not included, so had to go back to buy casters and drawer stops. Also bought a solid melamine top which finishes off the unit nicely. I just wish the cashier had suggested these additional purchases when I was checking out.
