Rated 5 out of 5 by from streamlined a mess I had a lot of different paper for printing. With these boxes I was able to neaten things up and label them. It makes a huge difference. The one thing I would caution you on is to check whether you want portrait of landscape drawers then buy accordingly. It's easy to pick the wrong one if you don't read the description.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Makeup Storage! I was very pleasantly surprised with these stackable drawers. They are great for storing makeup and I love the simplicity of them. Just one little thing is that the drawers do not pull out completely which depending on your needs could be a pro or a con. Also, I have to note that I wasn't too happy with shipping. I had almost forgot I ordered them before I finally received my shipping notice :/ hence the 4 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, efficient, sturdy The greatest thing about this drawer is how it doesn't call attention onto itself. You can put it anywhere; I have mine in my living room. Convenient access to lined paper, printer paper, and labels/post-its/pads/pens (bottom drawer). Now I want another for my makeup! Be forewarned, it seems a little cheap and "clanky" at first, but once its in place it's totally different!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I looked a long time.... My vanity was getting over crowded with too many cosmetics. As a makeup artist this lacked organization and clarity. I couldn't find things. I had been looking for something like this for a long time and when I saw it online, I jumped on it. I LOVE IT! I bought TWO! It also forced me to define those things that were NEEDED to have and those that were LIKED to have. Finally I am organized.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much more than paper storage! I love using these to store my makeup. Brushes, pencils and tubes fit perfectly and don't roll around. I also use them for keeping beadwork projects together. The drawer slides right out and becomes a work tray that I can bring to any location in the house. I'm sure there are many more applications for these drawers, and I highly recommend them to anyone. I still want to buy some more to store my paper!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tabletop organizer. Comes with tiny labels so you can label each drawer. Drawers are decently deep, and slide easily. Also construction on the whole is sturdier than I expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect organizer for all my make up and more I wanted to clean up my bathroom organization-- my make up, etc. I bought 2 of these and stacked them-- and they're absolutely perfect for makeup and other things like razors, refills, etc.-- HOLDS TONS of stuff. Now my makeup is perfectly organized-- eyes, face, lips, etc...The drawers have stops so it won't come flying out (as has happened before with other ones). I love that their drawers, somehow feels cleaner (and certainly neater looking). Inexpensive and functional-- can't be more pleased and they look surprisingly nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Organizing Dream I needed a way to sort and store my paper scraps from my card stamping/scrapbooking hobbies. These drawers are PERFECT! I bought 3 sets and labeled them by color families. Now my scraps are right at my fingertips. LOVE it!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! This made my home office desk look so much neater! I had stacks of paper laying around for different projects I am working on and now I can store them in the drawers which really makes my office look nicer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great multi-use product I bought the first set to organize my desk but soon realized that these drawers were ideal for sorting and storing all my makeup items and looked good enough to keep on my dressing table. I used the third set to store my bangle bracelets and pins. I cut "easy liner" to fit the bottom of each drawer to keep the items from shifting around. Works great! The drawer unit fits perfectly into one of the slots of my canvas hanging sweater bag, so it's out of sight but handy right there in my closet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from just the right size for makeup A couple of these hold my collection of makeup and brushes. Many makeup organizers are too deep, so you have makeup items (which are actually quite small) tumbled on top of each other. You can't see what you have. (Think of a tiny eyeshadow swimming in a dresser drawer!) This lets makeup sit flat in a single layer, so I can see everything at a glance. I have separate drawers for eyeshadow (which are flat and easy to spot by color), lipglosses (also easy to choose the exact color you want), and so on. I devote a drawer to brushes, which lay flat and protected inside (and away from pets!). I put oversize items like my kabuki brush, body lotion and perfume bottles in a translucent box nearby and I'm set. (You could use a decorative tray for this if you don't have prying pets.) So quick to get ready! Downside is that it's not "fancy" looking, clearly made of white and clear plastic. But it fits my simple, clean decor perfectly and makes my makeup area (and morning) more serene.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm surprised! First I thought I was going to be the first one to find out another way how to use. The product label and the online description tell you “Stationery Organizer”. When I got home and put my idea in practice (credit cards receipts, the junk mail that I don’t have time to shred every day, other small pieces of paper, etc) I’m delighted. My desk is much more organized now. I can take care of everything one by one, instead to have couple piles around and don't know from where to start. The feeling of being out of clutter is priceless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little drawers! I love that it's translucent on the top and there's a tray. But most of all...I love that it's not super duper deep (little papers don't get lost)! I use it to organize my receipts, coupons, bills that are coming up - so the "typical" office usage haha (I wish I thought of the make-up though! Great ideas!) It's lightweight which is nice - I have a tendency to need to pick-up-and-move to the bed or dining room (my desk has limited space)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect storage solution! I am delighted to find the perfect solution to 2 of my bedroom storage dilemmas. The first is my jewelry (necklaces, pins, watches, bracelets) and this is the ideal depth of drawer to store all my pieces perfectly! The second is with my mineral make-up little jars and brushes. This is the best design I can imagine to organize everything!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase to keep kids organized I purchased the Stackable Desktop Drawers for my kids homework station/area. I labeled each drawer and filled it with binder paper, typing paper and graph paper. Now they can have the paper they need for homework close at hand. I don't need to keep getting up and getting them paper when they need it.

Are the drawers easily removable?

I want to use these for papercrafting supplies but I want to be able to remove the drawer that I need and carry it across the room to my worktable. The description says there is a stop that prevents the drawer from coming out - how hard is it to get the drawer completely out? Also, can these 3-drawer units be stacked? Thanks!
Asked by: MemphisCrafter
Yes, when the drawer is fully accessed there is a stop point, if you pinch the catch / release the drawers will come completely out of the frame.
