Rollable Storage Cart with Drawers

LJM55 | Posted in Equipment and Supplies on

Hello. I am looking for a rollable, easy to clean, strorage cart with 3 to 4 drawers. I intend to store sewing notions and other items I need when I sew. The two drawers on my current sewing table are so full of my stuff that it is difficult to find anything fast. I once saw a lovely rolling cart with rainbow drawer trim(?) in Threads which could fit under the sewing table when not in use, however I have never seen it in the stores. If anyone can suggest where I could get that one, or something equally useful and attractive I would appreciate it. I live in Canada. If you have any other suggestions regarding what I could use to store my notions I would appreciate your help. Thanks

    Costco sells the multi-colored one seen in Threads last year ( or was it 2 yrs ago).  Also, I found the plastic-drawers found in office supply stores to work well. Can either have them stationary or roll around.

    I just bought two such carts at a major discount retailer (they may be different from the magazine one, though). Each cost $13, fits under the extension of my machine cabinet, and holds a surprising amount of sewing stuff. They are usually listed in the organizers or closet section of hardware or drugstores.

    I've never seen the rainbow coloured cart in Costco as someone else mentioned and I'm a regular there. Maybe its only in the US?

    I have four rolling carts that I use for sewing and one for art supplies (this one has more drawers and is quite tall). The shorter ones have either six shallow drawers or two shallow and two deep. I purchased two of them at Staples and they were more expensive than I would have liked. The others I found at Superstore (or the larger Loblaws stores, depending on where in the country you live). IIRC, they were on sale for something like $9.99 each. I love them for the organization they give me and their portability.

    Another thing that I think makes them a better purchase than the coloured ones is that the drawers are quite translucent and I can see what is in them without opening, so they don't need to be labelled.

    You might try IKEA if there is one near you. They usually have some nice looking rolling drawer sets at a good price in the office furniture section. I really like the rainbow colored one featured in Threads but it was a little expensive, I thought, especially if it was to be shipped to me. The company that makes that one I believe is called Advantus.

    I have this very cart, and got it on ebay.  Search on 10 drawer cart or 10 drawer organizer.  Someone always has one.

    A couple of years ago I bought some wonderful rolling chests from an office supply store.  I wasn't interested in "cute".  I wanted cheap/functional.  These cost me about $13 a piece because I watched for them to be on sale at half price.  They have six drawers that are perfect for bobbins, attachments, needles, etc.  All that little junk can be quickly sorted/viewed in the shallow drawers.  The top has a tray with compartments where I keep things I use all the time...pincushion, rippers, screwdriver, etc. 

    The best part is that they are on wheels and I just shove them out of sight under my work tables. One  works great for storing beads, sequins, etc.  When working on a project I rolled it where I could get comfortable, (watch TV,)  and the top tray kept the beads I was working on separate and I could stop at any time without having to do clean up.  As you can tell, I just love my carts and they are so much better than the gobs of  plastic shoe boxes I used to use because they are more accessible.  I liked them better than some similar things I saw at fabric stores...that were also a lot more expensive.

    I would think that one single cart would be much better for a beginner without a sewing room than the traditional "basket."  It can be easily rolled into a closet or out of sight and things don't get all tangled together.
