Default Is This good for scrap storage?

I was looking through some black friday adds and saw this... Does anyone have one of these? I was wondering if the drawers are stong enough to hold fabric scraps. I don't have a ton, so I won't be stuffing them ( I think) but would hate to buy them if they are not sturdy as this would be the only thing I need them for. Thanks in advance for any input you guys can give me

I was thinking of buying one. They look pretty sturdy for scrap holding.

I prefer clear containers so I can see what is in them. Let me know if you get it and like it.

IMHO...drawers aren't deep enough or large enough for my scraps. How many scraps do you have?

I had one and ended up giving it to my DH for the garage. It is not very sturdy and the drawers are constantly coming off the rungs. I was only using it for misc tools, etc. You can buy them at the big discountstores for $20 something. I wouldn't recommend this . Sorry!

I use the clear boxes for everything I can. I just spent a couple of days reorganizing all my scraps in color order in the clear boxes....reds/pinks/oragnes/yellows in one box, blues/greens/purples in another and etc. Certainly makes the searches a lot easier and quicker.

I have one of these! I bought mine at Sam's several years ago for $20 just because I thought they were cute. Bought two of them, actually! It's okaaaay ... that's the best I can say. I use mine for stuff that doesn't have to be seen or used daily. The drawers get off track very easily and are rather aggravating. I'm glad I only paid $20 each for mine. I don't think it's worth the $35 price, and for sure would never pay the ridiculous "regular" price. Hope this info helps.

I have one. We (my DD and I) just set it up. My DD wants to use the drawers for project storage. the drawers come out easily to take where we need for the project.
I thought that it could hold and organize my scraps well. It rolls where I need it. I paid a little less than that. But I thought that the flexibility of the cart was worth it.
