Like-it Portrait Paper Drawer is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 37.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice I love these. I bought 2 and want to get some more soon. They are perfect for my needs and are very attractive. They make my work space a lot neater. They did move around a bit on top of my little file cabinet, but, I solved that problem by putting a piece of rubbery shelf liner under them. They haven't moved since. And, I really like the way they stack.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice organizer Definitely a nice way to keep the desk clean, and the fact that they interlock helps. Getting pieces from the whole collection makes the desk look sharp, although I wish there was some anti-slide pads on bottom pieces. Nice overall!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best office storage option ever I purchased 6 of these units and liked them so much, I went back and bought 4 more. They make accessing files and supplies so easy and they stack nicely in the bookcase where I placed the. Even while stacked 4 high, the drawers are easy to open and close......and they look attractive in my office.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality & Useful These are excellent quality/construction. They stack together great and are very useful. I originally ordered (2) and have ordered (4) more. I just keep finding more uses for them. Well worth it for original price: great with sale price!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work Great, stack securely I liked the first two of these that I ordered so much that I have since ordered at least 6 more. They are great for stacking under the printer for paper and ink cartridge storage. They lock together securely when stacked and there is no shaking when the printer works. I put two in my bathroom closet. A great way to increase storage space. The drawers work smoothly also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I purchased two of these drawers to store small electronics & chargers in one, and medications, first aid in the other. They are on a table adjacent to my bed which is makes it easily accessible for use. Great buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for kids' paper art supplies! This paper drawer is great for my girls' art paper. It seems very sturdy and the drawers pull out easily. I have it in a bookcase and love that I can also stack things on top (much better than a basket style paper holder).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Wonderful I also have the letter tray and the desktop station. They fit together perfectly... other products I have tried always have a little gap or one sticks out on the side more than the other units when stacked, but not this one! Also they are no rough edges, so very safe! Absouletly love it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Function and Looks! Love the durability and the looks of this drawer! Holds up much better than the cardboard kind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal for Multiple Paper Types My kids have construction paper, writing tablets, drawing paper and pads....pretty much any type of paper they need to keep those creative juices flowing. These drawers were a perfect fit and helped me categorize the paper by type and place them neatly inside. I love that I was able to label the drawer so I can quickly find the paper I need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a joy My kitchen cabinets above my desk were a disaster and drawer space was limited. I purchased the portrait paper drawers and stacked them in these cabinets with labels. I now can find cords, clips, check books, notepads, extra tape and supplies in a moment. I keep walking by and opening the doors just to look inside now. Now I feel like I need more and everything needs a home with a label!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, Love, Love I live in a small NYC apartment. These trays stack and stay stacked on a bookshelf. Each drawer holds a ream of paper - I no longer have to worry that my computer paper will get crumpled before I need it thus saving me money on wasted paper. I use one draw for white printer paper, one for colored printer paper, one for loose leaf paper, for the last one I bought the inserts for pens and wow does it organize me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from just what I was searching for They are smokey in color so you can see threw them a little. However they look great. They stack on top of each other nicely, locking in place well. I purchased 4 of them. My space is limited and I needed something that would look nice and function well. I love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Being able to use this product for other items other than paper (like my ear phones that I need to study Rosetta Stone) is very useful. I do have two of these trays and I wish they connected together instead of just siting on top of one another.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from These drawers are great for keeping printer paper clean and dust free and to corral pens and pencils. I purchased two, one for printer paper and the other for general office supplies. Only The Container Store had the right storage solution for my needs. I thought the void under my printer stand would go unused! The only reason I gave it four stars was that the drawers did NOT come with pre-cut cards to put in the label slots. You must make your own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Translucent is the way to go Translucent drawers are the way to go. I tend not to like clear, lucite like accessories but I do like how they seem less bulky because they are transparent. These translucent drawers allow me to see enough of what is inside to know which drawer to open, but still gives some privacy. Love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It Absolutely LOVE this item. It is so sturdy and they stack one on top of another but with little pegs on the bottom of each unit that really holds them together very well. Stack them as high as you like. Very different and unique. Other brands slide on eachother when stacked. I homeschool my children and this is a MOST for all homeschooler. I absolutey love the cut out on the front to write what is to go in there. I prefer the gray color because I don't like to see my objects/paper etc all the time. THis is so adaptable it is a best buy of the year. (And trust me I am heavily into organizing and have tried almost everything out there.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Convenient! When paired with the desktop station, this drawer is so convenient for all those little desktop necessities that seem to clutter up my desk! The size is perfect for your typical 8.5 x 11 paper and helps to keep my bills organized!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Buy I bought these drawers to hold my printer paper and mailing envelopes and labels. While they do store paper, if you have large mailing envelopes or packages of mailing labels they might not fit in the drawers. I wish they were a little bit larger, but other than that they are a great buy to get organized.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific 'tool' for organizing! A set of 6 of these drawers stacked 3 in each 'pile' on a closet shelf helped me to organize desk supplies which were in random boxes. Now they are labeled and are wonderfully accessible. Thanx!

Is the price $17.99 for a two drawer unit, or $17.99 for each of the drawers? Can the drawers be laid side by side, or do they come permanently stacked 2 high?

Asked by: Roderick H
The drawers are sold individually, but we show two stacked here. Two can be used either side-by-side or stacked.

Do the drawers pull out?

Or are thy locked in? I would like to be able to remove them for art supplies etc

What is the outside width of the drawer once pulled out?

I'm trying to make sure I have enough space to pull the drawer out once in the cabinet. I will have to turn the drawer sideways to even get it in the cabinet.
Asked by: MamaMel
Once removed from the frame, our Like-it Portrait Paper Drawer measures 9-1/4” wide x 13” deep x 2-3/4” high.

How does the desktop station stack on top?

I bought the portrait drawer and the desktop station. I thought somehow the desktop station snapped on top? Or does it just rest on top (not very securely). Thanks.
Asked by: Mia2013
This product sits atop one another without any locking mechanisms.
