    Default IKEA Rolling Carts for Homeschool Storage?

    Does anyone have the IKEA 3 tier rolling cart that is so popular among homeschoolers?
    Raskog or something like that?
    I have it on my list.

    Due to Covid I find myself homeschooling childcare kiddos AND doing our normal preschool for the little ones. I need to know if this holds binders?

    I am running out of room to store all the needed stuff and I know these are popular. I printed all the preschool work off and have it in 2 inch binders for each child. Plus all the 1st grader homeschooling stuff.

    I can always haul a binder to the store with me I guess and test it but if anyone knows, it would be here.

    THANKS!

    Yep! I'm using a Raskog to hold our homeschool stuff that's currently in use, and I'm using a binder for my lessons and printouts and whatnot for my kiddo. It probably depends on exactly how big your binder is - I don't think an old school Trapper Keeper would fit! - but I have a binder tucked on the top level of the Raskog cart right now and it fits just fine.

    I have (4) 2 inch thick standard size binders for preschool and then assorted paper folders, composition notebooks, etc. I figured the binders would probably need to go on the top shelf but it is good to know they fit. 2 weeks ago I was hauling MY piano home from my parents over Labor Day weekend, our kitchen table was getting gone and piano taking its place. I had just preschoolers for Fall scheduled. And then 2 current clients of school agers begged me to homeschool their (2) 1st graders AND since I am a sucker for homeschooling... here we are. Now I am trying to prep my daycare area for ALL of it and make it so it makes ME not so crazy. THANK YOU!!!

    It DOES fit binders! I can fit 3 on the very bottom rack after we adjusted the middle rack. I could fit a 4th tech. but trying to get it in and out would trash it.
    All 4 fit on the very top rack easily.
    Very pleased with it and working this week to fit the rest of our supplies on it.
