My Raskog Trolley purchase was around the time I was an avid scrapbooker and project life fanatic.

It was the perfect mobile trolley for keeping my most used items in one place.

I could wheel it into the dining room or the lounge room as well, so I wasn’t limited to just crafting in the office.

So when I was deep in the process of overhauling my home office and craft room, the scrapbooking supplies came out of my Raskog trolley and it was converted into a business supplies cart for working from home.

More recently it has had it’s time as a temporary home school cart as well! And now it does a perfect job of holding kids’ craft supplies, colouring books and playdough.

Where To Get A Raskog Cart

Ikea stocks Raskog 3-tier carts in several colours and they always have them in stock.

These days you can get similar versions of the Ikea trolley in places like Kmart or sometimes even Aldi during one of their seasonal catalogues. They all do essentially the same thing.

There are some great versions you can purchase online too if you are nowhere near an Ikea store.

It is a 3 tier trolley Ikea developed that is on wheels, perfect for storing things short or long term. They are solid and sturdy and cute.

The Ikea trolleys have gone down in price over the past few years, which makes them even more affordable and well priced than ever before, at only $49AU. Woohoo!

Kitchen Garden

Raskog plant storage

What a great way to set up your herb garden! No window sill needed.

My favourite part of this idea is the fact that you can roll it outside for extra sunshine or for a heavy watering, and the fact that the cart has drainage holes in the heavy duty mesh style bases.

Roll it back inside once the water drips have stopped or when you are doing a big batch cooking session and want to have your fresh herbs close by.

And if the colours aren’t your style, you can paint it the colour you want before you put your cart to use!


The Ikea trolley for baby rooms and kid storage is such a wonderful use, mostly because it is mobile and you can move it around with ease.
