I ordered this cart to store my coloring supplies. In the last 2 years I've collected a number of coloring books, colored pencils & pens, etc. The cart is big enough to hold quite a lot of supplies. The bottom two deeper bins hold my books, the 4 shallow drawers hold my pencils, pens, markers, etc. Nice to have them in one place instead of in various bags & boxes. I do have the cart pretty much loaded to the max, but it's not as sturdy as I expected it to be. You must grasp it with both hands to move it and the drawers could be heavier gauge. However, I believe it will serve me for a long time as long as I treat it with TLC.
I was excited about this product, to use as arts/crafts storage for my children. I thought it was the perfect size to be able to store their crayons, paper, paints, coloring books, stamps, etc. It's colorful, and easy to put together. My only complaint is that for the price, it's not that great of quality. The drawers are constantly falling out of their grooves. If we tighten the frame any more to prevent the drawers slipping, then you can barely get the drawers to pull out. All in all, it's a good product for what I need it to do. I just think the price is way too expensive for the quality.
I am very excited about starting the school year off right with our new multi-color storage cart. My husband and I put the cart together in a reasonable amount of time and everything arrived in excellent condition. The storage bins are study enough to store notebooks and paper. I tried putting some books in one of the bins but it was difficult to pull out the drawer so I just moved the books to a bookshelf instead. I will be using the small drawers on top to sort notebooks and papers that are due on different days of the week. I will use the 2 big drawers on the bottom to sort and store their completed projects and papers brought home from school. This will be so much better than stuffing all of the papers into a small folder and having it overflowing with papers halfway into the school year!
We have been using these for several months now...on a daily basis. We are happy with the quality for our purposes. I actually purchased two of these units so I have four columns of drawers. Each of our children have their own column for their school subjects. I works great because we only put worksheets, clipboards, mini-paper books. flashcards, etc. We do not put regular textbooks for hardback books in there, as they won't handle the with of them and still allow the drawers to slide easily. However, for our purposes...absolutely awesome!!!
