Jumbo Utility Cart
Shocked at quality
I saw this item in the store and thought it would be perfect for my classroom. I teach 4 periods a day and need 4 separate spaces to collect papers. I ordered online and picked up in store for a special promotion to receive 10% off. This cart rolled no more than a few yards in the parking lot at the Container Store, where it entered my boyfriend's car. Then, it rolled a few more yards from his car to mine, inside his parking deck. It remained there, untouched, overnight. I went to my car today to move it into my classroom. When I picked it up, one wheel had broken off. I was shocked! I love the Container Store and believe they carry quality items. I'm hoping that there just happened to be a weak wheel, or possibly a poorly constructed product. Regardless, I am returning it and will not get another one. If it breaks by that small amount of use, my 6th graders will demolish it in less than a week of school, no questions asked.
This does not change my opinion about the Container Store and I will continue to shop there - but I would definitely not recommend this product to a friend (or enemy!).

The cart to do cartwheels over!
I LOVE this versatile cart. The price is right, it cleans easily, and its uses are limited only by your imagination. Ours is still in great shape after many years. We first used it as an easy way to empty kitchen drawers and move things to another room when we were having our kitchen re-done. Then we used it to hold cans in the pantry. Then we used it for kids' papers and school supplies. Now it's in our lower level, and three of the baskets hold towels. We removed the fourth basket and placed it on our kitchen counter to go hold fruit and bread. This cart is great. Come to think of it, I think we'll buy another one!

see thru storage
This is nice and compact. The wheels roll nicely. You can see what is in the drawer before opening it. It can be used in many rooms for many things. I use it in my craft are to hold the items I need regularly, but do not want out on the desk such as 3 hole punch, tapes, different scissors etc.

Out of sight!
Wow! How handy can it be when you can store something , roll it away and bring it back another day.
