White Stackable Storage & File Drawer
Cheaply made. Great support staff
These drawers were surprisingly cheaply made. I ordered four, and two were completely shattered upon arrival. Also, I don't even have them full yet, and the fronts pull off while trying to open them.
To be fair though, I called the Container store, and they were EXTREMELY helpful in getting me replacements. I ordered these for the office, and I don't have time to be chasing my orders around. I may wind up gluing the fronts on so that they don't have the tendency to come off while I'm trying to open the drawers.
They look as good as pictured, and fit well in our office. They're bigger than I thought, and will probably be great for storage beyond files.
I would recommend these drawers with some caution. You get what you pay for.

Works quite well
I bought three of the file drawers to stack in an area in my closet. I use them for work and personal items (unbeknownst to the IRS). They stack together easily and securely and they glide open smoothly. I did not want a metal file cabinet. I chose these because I am not stuck with the setup, I can detach and reattach at will. Very happy with them.

The units were perfect. They fit in with any decor . I used them to store sweaters and they held everything. It was one of the best purchases I have recently made and I plan to order more in the future. I highy recommend them.

They are sturdy, but I don't have to worry about them rusting if they accidentally get wet. I love that I can make it fit the space I have in my cupboard under the stairs.
They are nice and streamlined without looking like a box. It holds so much more than you think it would and I feel so much more organized. A label on the front of the drawer makes it perfect!

Very sturdy, the drawers glide smoothly. I bought 3 of these and stacked them. I like the versatility in the configuration. They hold much more than a traditional file cabinet.

Sturdy File Doors
We purchased 2 of these file drawers a couple years ago and have loved them! Our files have expanded and grown so we needed more filing space. Unfortunately there is no Container Store anywhere near where we live so I tried to find something at a local store. After searching everywhere I had to order the CS File Drawers. Nothing compares so we ordered 2 more CS filing drawers. They are individual so you can move one at time but they are sturdy and strong. We have them stacked in one of our office cabinets for hidden filing.

I purchased hese containers online after seeing them in the container store. The containers were carelessly packed and the corners on left side rear were cracked. Despite being cracked, they were still able to stack. When I transferred my files, they were toppling over and could not withstand the weight of the files. The front of the drawer keeps coming off and you have to keep snapping it on, and it kept doing that.
The Container Store was very supportive and, at first, wanted to replace this order. I then told them about the sturdiness of these draws and told them not to resend the file draws as it does not suit my needs. The immediately and fortunately stopped the order and are crditing me. A very nice customer service experience.

White Premium Storage & File Drawer
Very convenient. Stores a lot of hanging files. Looks good too.

Great additional file space
This is a great file drawer and system. The drawer has a lot of depth to accomodate plenty of files. It rolls open and closed extremely smoothly. The only drawback would be the width. I wanted to buy 2-3 to stack, but it was more wide than would fit in the space. (More wide than a plastic file crate, for example. Just make sure you measure carefully.) I ended up only using one in another place, but am extremely happy with it.

Solid file drawer
I bought 3 of these drawers to consolidate my personal files. I stacked all 3 on top of each other and then filled them to the max with file folders. To my delight, the drawers hold a ton of file folders and still glide very easily. The drawers are quite steady and super easy to clip together. I would certainly recommend this product to anyone looking for an alternative to ugly file cabinents.

These drawers have been very useful for my papers as well as professional journals and softcover books. I use the multipurpose bins inside the drawers for the books. They stay dust-free (and moisture-free) and don't fall over as they would on a shelf. I also inserted standard castors to the bottom drawer for ease in moving. They fit seamlessly into the round holes.

I needed to update my homefiling system and without wanting to spent hundreds of dollars on a metal filing cabinet and not wanting to use milk crates, the drawers do the job. Perfect for college/graduate students or a cheap filing solution.

best file cabinet
after many months of looking for a quality file cabinet that would not break the bank i purchased this cabinet. honestly better than expected. looked a little cheap in pictures but turned out to be exceptional quality!- good looking, and easy to move around, slides easy, good for small space!

I liked the idea of a white cabinet to match the white shelves in the closet where it is kept. I was therefore excited to receive my purchase. After receiving it, however, I was disappointed in the quality of the materials used. I had read the reviews and expected better. The drawers do not move smoothly. Additionally, when one of the drawers are open, the cabinet tips over.

I love that these drawers fit and match into any space, because they are stackable and white. If you don't like them in white, they are also available in black. I just wish that the drawers were a little bit longer so that more would fit. I have a lot of papers to file and these drawers are a little bit smaller (not by much) than average. Also, sometimes the front of the drawers slide back and forth and that is rather annoying or even fall off (not often, but it has happened to me twice in one year), but the bright side is that it snaps right back on like nothing happened.

I use one to store dvds, and I use another for my stickers and stationary! I also bought a third one to use as my art and crafts drawer.

Simply the Best and lightest
If you move as often as we do, this is the file cabinet for you! It is light, durable, and has the best drawer rollers in its class.
A fully functional, lightweight alternative.
We have tried all the others (in plastic) and this is the Best!

Great multipurpose stackable drawer
These stackable drawers are great for playroom/toy storage. They do very well stacked in a closet and have a large capacity.

Handy storage drawer
These easy to use drawers were a cost effective and fast solution to organizing a shed full of odds and ends. Now, I can quickly sort through my neatly tucked away stuff without difficulty.

I am very happy with the file cabinet. They are very secure when stacked and they don't move around when you pull a drawer out. They are light and easy to assemble.

Great File System for an Amazing Price
I have been looking for a filing system that cost less than $100, and this was definitly well under $150. These drawers are great. They are very sturdy, except the front facade on the drawers can come off if you tug on it too much, but it can easily be snapped back on. I have loaded the drawers with files and they are holding up. I have to say for the price this storage system is great!
