Anthracite 5-Bin Storage Tower
I found it! A solution. My photographic notecard business required better storage. These are the perfect size, look great in my office, I added some self-Adhesive Instant Wheels (right there at The Container Store) to be able to move them when I needed to get to bookshelves and could create a middle divider using Lifestyle Systems 4â¿ drawer dividers. I bought two and liked them so much that I bought a third yesterday. Employees knew just what I needed. Wheels? They knew where to find them and what would work. Same thing with the dividers. The Container Store = The Solution Store.

nice to look at but disappointed in function
I really thought I had found the ideal small footprint storage for next to my computer. I love the looks; minimalist and clean with no protruding handles. However the drawers do not move nearly as easily as I had expected and they seem to open the ones adjacent at the same time .. i.e.part of the stack moves with them. This is "messy" looking and irritating as I have to keep closing the drawers that I don't want open.
it looks like this might be adjustable with a hex key but I don't plan to risk messing it up without instructions. Also, there are some less than perfectly finished edges to the steel at almost every seam in the sides of the drawers. The unit was packed well , but I don't find the quality justifies the price and having transferred all my stuff to it ( it does hold a lot) I will have to unpack it and return it.

Shoe Storage Solution
I bought this tower in the larger size that is now available (only in white currently). Although on the expensive side, it's turned out to be the best shoe storage solution for me. I hate the shoe storage options that leave the shoes out in the open -- that looks great in the magazine, where every show is clean as a whistle, just out of the box for the photo shoot, and also color coordinated. (Whose shoes come in only three colors??) Not so much when the shoes have actually been used and come in a dozen different shades and styles. I also find the shoe boxes a hassle because once you start to stack them, opening and closing those little doors is just a pain. This tower holds 3 pairs of shoes in each pull-out drawer. They are hidden away, but easy to access, and my closet never looked so streamlined and tidy. I plan on purchasing one for my husband. If I trip over a pair of his shoes one more timeâ¿¦.

Perfect solution for my piles of paperwork!
This has been a HUGE timesaver at work!! We started out only ordering 1 and now everyone in my office has ordered them. I was looking for a better way to organize daily/monthly financials, invoices, packing slips, etc. Thought I would give the 5-bin storage tower a shot and I am soooo glad I did. I put everything I need for the current month in these drawers, they flip open really easily if I need to refer to something quickly, and the best part is it keeps my desk uncluttered!
At the end of the quarter I can scan/shred/file what I no longer need and make room for the next. I was surprised at how much paper these drawers hold and how little space it takes up. Amazing product- I am going to order more for home as well. Great for organizing anything- skin care, makeup, shoes, socks, mail, magazines, office supplies, arts and crafts, toys, snacks in the pantry, pet supplies, etc., etc. Everyone should own multiple towers!! I know I will!
