I have wanted a 3-tier rolling cart for years, since IKEA offered an aqua one and I saw all the ways people used them plastered all over Pinterest! I missed out, though, then almost got a mint green one…then I saw a TURQUOISE at Michael’s and finally pulled the trigger! These are just eleven 3-tier cart ideas in hopes that it gives you a storage solution to something that’s been bugging you.

As a huge fan of living simply and clutter free, keeping things all in one place has been life changing and these carts help with that!

What makes these carts so functional is that they’re portable. You can take it where you’re going to work, and tuck it away when not in use. They’re slim enough to fit into a corner or closet.

To follow my home organizing Pinterest board, go here: Stylish Home Organizing

The first is probably the most obvious and most common. Use it for arts and crafts supplies! I love that it keeps everything organized but is so enticing because you can SEE it! You can even keep a different category in each basket. Everything fits and stacks so nicely in almost any container. 

The second is why they’re so popular for back to school…use one in the classroom! Great for learning centers or as a rolling library, they’re super handy when you need portable storage.

The third is super fun and that’s for beverage cart whether for a party or specifically for coffee, tea or alcohol. Mugs or glasses, fixins, bottles…and you can bring it out for company.

Another one of my 3-tier cart ideas came from my friend Karen and goes along with the morning basket idea I talk about here. Put whatever projects you’re working on ON the cart!

The fifth is for a homework/art station. Maybe your kids want to work at the kitchen table or in their room. Just move the cart!

The sixth is another idea from a friend which is as a nightstand like this one from Organization Obsessed. You could also put your clock and lamp on top, reading materials in the middle and pampering supplies at the bottom! It would be fun for a guest room, too.

Another pretty one!

For seven, how great are these for the dorm room??

As number eight, they’re great in the bathroom for your health and beauty supplies. You can even use them as 1. face 2. nails 3. hair like below. Talk about organized!

For nine, keep one in the kitchen for baking supplies or as an extra pantry storage space. I’ve also seen them used for snacks and school lunch supplies and then the kids can pack their own lunches.

Number ten is in the nursery. They’re perfect for diapers, wipes, blankets, toys, etc. Later it would be cute for books or toys.

Eleven is one of my favorites which is for an office on wheels. Or it could be your mom command center! Files, wrapping supplies, stationary…and you can work wherever you want!

Here’s mine. My day planner, files, pens, mail supplies, journals and notebooks, clipboard, Bible and prayer notebook.
