6-Case Scrapbook Cart
Couldn't Scrap without it.
I have purchased 6 of these carts from The Container Store and they are the heart and soul of my scrapbooking room. I have labeled every drawer with a subject. I have filed stickers, 12 X 12 paper, brads and embellishments in the roomy drawers. I scrapbook for our new grandsons, family members, travel, friends, holidays and special events. The cart of drawers is perfect for easy selection as I create memory books. With new purchases of materials I immediately file the new stickers or paper in the drawers so there is never a pile of materials that I need to sort through in order to find subject matter. I love these and have even taken them apart to stack them taller. Wish I had room for more!

Perfect for Scrapbookers!
I have been looking for years for something neat and compact that can help me organize all of my materials. I had never been to the Container Store and saw one so stopped in. I found this perfect organizer for all of my stickers, markers, papers and more. The store has me hooked and now I go all the time. Whatever you need to organize, this store will have it!

Excellent / sturdy / very diverse use!!
I'm so glad I stumbled on this cart in my favorite store (Container Store!).
I make art photo/scrapbooks for my employer, and do most of my work from home. As the number of projects increased, I needed to create a "craft" work station/system that would allow me to safely and neatly store and FIND hundreds of unique 12x12 scrapbook papers as well as other supplies. This cart is perfect! If you take the wheels off, you can stack another cart on top and have 12 drawers. The cases are generously sized, leaving a little extra room so 12 x 12 papers don't bend at the edges. In addition, I purchase and use extra cases to store projects that are "in the wings" - easily being able to add photos, captions, stickers, trims, supplies and ideas that are unique to that particular project, and keep everything in ONE place! At this time, I have 4 double stacks of these carts...and have no problem adding to the inventory as projects increase. They are durable, keep their balance on carpet or wood floor, and help me keep organized!! FANTASTIC PRODUCT!

Great for THREAD
These individual drawers are a smidge over 3 inches in height, perfect for spools of thread. I have (hundreds of spools of thread because I machine embroider) and these drawers fit my stash great.
I actually bought 2 of these chests, and the top of one of the chests came off fairly easily so I could stack one set of six drawers on top of the other set of six drawers. It would be fairly easy to remove one or two levels and just make it 9 or 10 drawers in my stack. So its easy to Customize for your purposes. The top of the set of drawers is partitioned so it can hold some other tools.
I like the lids on the drawers but have sliced a couple drawers' lids off with an Xacto knife for a couple to make quick identification and access easier. Not sure if I will regret taking the lid off yet.
I left the lids on the bottom drawers for storing Stabilizer for the embroidery, the 12" rolls of stabilizer fit perfectly and having it nearly air-tight is perfect for storing the Wash Away stabilizer, which has to be kept free of moisture.
The entire thing rolls easily on wheels. However it is polypropylene or plastic so if it got too heavy the weight would cause the wheel bearings to loosen.
