Monday with Megan: Trends in Organizing; THE Raskog Cart by IKEA

Monday with Megan: Trends in Organizing; THE Raskog Cart by IKEA

I’d like to begin by thanking all of you for the amazing comments you left last week. I read each and everyone and appreciate them SO much. You’re a brilliant community and you know how to make a gal feel good. Thank you!

Now, let’s get some fine print out of the way regarding this post. I am in no way affiliated with IKEA, nor do I pretend to be on TV (or something like that). But I am hopelessly in love with the Raskog cart.

  1carts

The moment I first laid eyes on this thing of beauty, I snapped this image and posted it to my Instagram account with the caption, “Someday very soon, one of these IKEA beauties will be mine. Oh, yes!”

  2instagram

Yes, it was love at first site. The reason for my crush is simple: I immediately saw tremendous storage potential in waiting. And as a storage/organization junkie, I fell head over heels. I went on to produce Creative Spaces Vol. 2 with Megan Hoeppner, where this beautiful cart graced the pages in three of the featured rooms. Three! It had only been on sale… a month, if that, and it was already making appearances in craft rooms around the globe.

I spy, with my little eye… a Raskog on the cover.

So, in honor of this cart and talking trends in organization, I thought we could look at all of the cool ways this cutie cart can be used to help you organize your crafting life. But first, let’s look at a few fun approaches outside of the craft room.

 Bar Cart (Bart?)

Want your own rolling beverage station? Looks like Azul Home has the right idea.

  4bar

And I’m totally digging this outdoor entertainment approach by Cote Maison—put two carts side by side, top them with some lumbar, and you’ve got a poolside party!

  4bar-a

 

Baby Buggy

Comfy Home proves it’s easy to keep yourself organized, even as a new mama. Check out this sweet nursery idea.

  6baby

Book Cart

Don’t have a nightstand? No problem! Apartment Therapy has a clever idea for using this cart to store your books, magazines, and other bedside business.

6book

Now, onto the need we all have in common: getting our crafting supplies organized. Whether you’re looking to create a die-cutting station, a Project Life landing space, a colorful art caddy, or nifty knitting center, this cart has you covered. Take a look!

Die Cutting Done Right

When it comes to cutting it out, dies and machines can be bulky and cumbersome. No worries; as Connie Mercer (Crafty Goodies) illustrates here, the tiers of a rolling cart are all you need to create a die-cutting station on wheels.

Puttin’ On the Spritz

These carts belong to Marcy Penner, who hopes she’ll use her spray ink and paint more with them kept out where she can see them and access them. Great tip! Do you have a supply you don’t use as much as you wish you did? Perhaps relocating it to an open storage solution like this is just what the doctor ordered.

Aerial View

Love this top-down look inside Nicole Reaves cart, which was featured on the Studio Calico blog. Now I know why I’ve hung onto all of those baby-food jars. Isn’t this an awesome way to keep your small embellishments contained?

  9top-view

Prop Shop

Here’s a cool cart start a la The 36th Avenue: keep your photo-shoot props contained in one portable place. This is an awesome idea if you shoot projects for your blog, Instagram or other avenue, because props can quickly become bulky and unruly, and this cart keeps so many shapes and sizes grouped together.

  10photo-props

 ROYGBIV

If “color” is the name of your creative game, you’re going to go gaga for Lisa Hetrick’s Raskog rainbow. Just look at how many unique color mediums a single cart holds. Wow!

  11color

Anabelle O’Malley is another who enjoys the wonderful world of color with her cart, as seen on the Studio Calico blog. Love her use of milk glass dishes to hold various tools!

12color

At the Swapp

Heidi Swapp loaded her cart with all sorts of beautiful goodies, including journaling cards that would be just right for Project Life albums.

  13HS

Yes, this cart pretty much takes the cake when it comes to getting organized. It’s a popular little number that works for so many uses. And it’s only $49.99 (USD). The only downside? Welll, not everyone has an IKEA nearby, which is why I’m pleased to inform you World Market carries similar products, including the carts shown below:

15WorldMarket

These beauties do cost a bit more than the IKEA cart, but through April 9, World Market is offering free shipping on $100 or more and 10% off your order. Shazam!

So, now I’m hoping you’ll help me out. I have the teal Raskog cart, and I’m not sure how to put it to use. There are just too many cool ideas out there. Currently, I use it to hold projects in progress, but I’m not sure if that’s the best use. I’d love to know what idea was your favorite, or if you have a different idea entirely. Feel like sharing?

Thanks! I hope you’ve enjoyed playing Megio Cart with me today as much as I’ve enjoyed it!

Since we rocked the Raskog, I thought I’d leave you with a little Rock the Casbah action. Hope it doesn’t, ahem, Clash with your day.

  

Until we meet again, cool carts cats,

    Omgosh! Now I have to have one of those carts! The nearest Ikea to me is almost 2 hours away, but it might be worth the trip 😉
    I placed my 1st order with Paper Smooches a few weeks ago & fell in love. Thanks for the chance.

  2. Jenny Kozar April 7, 2014 at 2:02 pm

    This cart is still on my wish list – I am hoping to use it to keep supplies in sight as well so that I use more of what I have.

  3. Crafty Math Chick April 7, 2014 at 2:21 pm

    That cart looks like it would come in handy! Paper Smooches is one of my favorite crafting companies (and Kim Hughes ROCKS!) Thanks so much for the chance to win! What a fun way to celebrate your birthday!

  6. Kayla F. April 7, 2014 at 2:41 pm

    I just love those carts, I haven’t been able to splurge on one just yet.

  7. Phyllis April 7, 2014 at 2:41 pm

    I’ve been eyeing this little cart from my IKEA catalog for a while now, could put my latest projects in it & just wheel it into another room when I want to work on my project.

  8. rosalie April 7, 2014 at 2:41 pm

    These carts are something I sure could make use of to be organized!! Thank you for the chance to win $25 gift certificate Paper Smooches. Would sure put that to use also! Happy Birthday celebrations are fun to say the least!

    Ok, so IKEA is just down the street from me and I pass it everyday. I am now going to have to STOP! This cart is amazing! Thanks so much for sharing! Love all the ideas!

  19. Deborah Rikard April 7, 2014 at 3:17 pm

    I have one of those carts in teal that I purchased several months ago on a trip to Ikea with my daughter. Who knew I would be ahead of the trend! I love it! The top rack has my xyron, post its, adhesives, all that kind of stuff. Next rack has acrylic blocks, baby wipes etc.. Bottom rack has my larger size sizzix dies and heating tool for embossing. After seeing all these lovely ideas I need another one! Would love to win the paper smooches gift certificate. Thanks for the chance.

  20. Donna Digby April 7, 2014 at 3:26 pm

    I just got my first cart two weeks ago. I love it! I bought mine because it fits the Close to My Heart new storage containers beautifully.

  21. Janet Zeppa April 7, 2014 at 3:27 pm

    You are such enablers lol!!! The cart looks great. Thanks Paper Smooches for being so generous!

  22. Debbie Eslinger April 7, 2014 at 3:42 pm

    this cart is amazing, love. I do not know if you showed this in the pictures, but I would make it a stamping station

  23. Lisa Chin April 7, 2014 at 3:50 pm

    I have my cart up and running holding baskets of alpha stickers, my Sizzix large dies and embossing folders and my Heidi Swap supplies on the top shelf. Thanks of the chance to win the gift certificate!

  24. Elisabeth B April 7, 2014 at 3:50 pm

    ahhhhh so pretty!!! I have an ikea nearby. Got to check it out

  25. NinaN April 7, 2014 at 4:00 pm

    Those are all amazing ideas for that cart!! I’m not sure what I would do with it! Maybe organize stamps and die cutting stuff?? I guess it really depends on what you use the most and what really needs to be organized!

  26. Kathy P. April 7, 2014 at 4:09 pm

    Ooh, I would LOVE that GC……love Paper Smooches stuff so much!! I have the Raskog (teal)….store ‘most’ of my pocket cards in it, and can wheel it right to my craft desk when I am doing pocket pages!!! I ‘might’ need one more to hold all my pocket stuff!!! “))

  27. Jackie Peduzzi April 7, 2014 at 4:10 pm

    What an amazing cart! I have never been to IKEA but would love these carts.

  28. Chelsea Schroeder April 7, 2014 at 4:23 pm

    The Raskog is on my list as well! Love the versatility!

  29. Beatrice Lawson April 7, 2014 at 4:34 pm

    Got this cart and love it! Top shelf holds punches, middle has bling and The bottom holds stickers. The hello card is so cute! Would love this die, thank you for The chance!

  30. Laura Turcotte April 7, 2014 at 4:45 pm

    {{{{SQUEAL!!!}}}} I am so loving those carts—they have been on my wish list forever (or so it seems!)
    Love Paper smooches, too! Awesome!

  31. Brenda April 7, 2014 at 4:49 pm

    Love Paper Smooches – their stuff is so cute! I think I would use the card to store all of my stamps, inks and stamping tools.

  32. Catherine April 7, 2014 at 4:51 pm

    Love all the great ideas especially the pool bar cart. For crafting, I like the Big Shot version. I love the big guy but it’s a pain to drag it in and out if the cupboard where it lives in a plastic bin topped with another bin that holds dies and embossing folders. A cross between the bar cart and this would be great. Find a handy guy who can make a counter top that is your work surface that sits securely on the cart when you need to use the Big Shot and that lifts off and can stand against the wall when not in use.

  33. Beth Mueller April 7, 2014 at 5:24 pm

    Would be great to win! Thanks!!!

  34. Manuela B. April 7, 2014 at 5:34 pm

    I received a teal one for Christmas and I love it! I’m reorganizing my craft space but right now it’s storing my punches, markers, coloured pencils and ink tools. Once I reorganize I’m pretty sure it will still carry my punches but not sure what else.

  35. jean marmo April 7, 2014 at 5:56 pm

    Such a cool cart! Loving Paper Smooches too! Thanks for the chance to win!

  36. Lynne in NI April 7, 2014 at 6:05 pm

    Great storage ideas … all the more room for more crafty goodies 😉

  37. Memoriesbymanda April 7, 2014 at 6:13 pm

  38. karenajo April 7, 2014 at 6:28 pm

    Like the idea of using the cart for a die cutting station – would be really handy !!! Thanks for a chance to win some Paper Smooches goodies !!

  39. Janet April 7, 2014 at 6:36 pm

    You are an enabler. I live within an hour of Ikea and was planning a trip there this weekend. I may need to check out this cart. – It is so cute. I actually like the book cart idea – it would make a great side table or bedside table. Thanks for the great ideaas.
    I also love the idea of picking my own prize …

  45. Bevb April 7, 2014 at 7:18 pm

    Wow $25.00 from Paper Smooches to have fun shopping count me in. Thanks.

  46. Lynn Darda April 7, 2014 at 7:20 pm

  47. Heather Thompson April 7, 2014 at 7:32 pm

    oh my, I want one of these. I could use it so many ways. I might need more than one. Oh I’m going to need a bigger room. I am always pulling my Big Shot out of the closet. I want!!!!!

  56. Bernice J April 7, 2014 at 8:10 pm

    I just put together my Raskog cart so I haven’t used it yet, but I already want another one too!

  57. Kim Potts April 7, 2014 at 8:20 pm

    I’ve never been to IKEA. It’s a couple of hours from where we live and my daughter went there recently. She was telling me all about it and how cool it is and all the really nice stuff. This cart is so cute and I love the color. Anyone up for a road trip?

  58. Janet Sisk April 7, 2014 at 8:53 pm

    YAY! I love Paper Smooches stamps and dies! Thanks for a chance to win. 😀

  59. D April 7, 2014 at 9:01 pm

    Perfect timing! I need to seriously overhaul my scrapping organization and there’s an Ikea 5 miles away. Thanks!

  60. Kim Thomas April 7, 2014 at 9:03 pm

    Thank you for the awesome post! I would love one myself someday. It looks so cute filled with all of the gorgeous colors. Thank you so much for the chance to win. I ♥ Paper Smooches! Take care.

  61. Deborah Dvorak April 7, 2014 at 9:12 pm

    Oh my! The next time we go to Minneapolis I’m getting one of those darts!! Gonna go say “hi” to Paper Smooches!!

  62. Deborah Dvorak April 7, 2014 at 9:13 pm

    Oops, carts!!!

  63. Sue D April 7, 2014 at 9:14 pm

    Thanks for sharing the many ways to use this cart.
    Love Paper Smooches.

  64. Meghan April 7, 2014 at 9:15 pm

    I totally love the Raskog cart from Ikea! I definitely got some great ideas from these photos….thanks!

  65. TracyM #6773 April 7, 2014 at 9:17 pm

    FABULOUS storage idea Megan!!!
    I think you should use your teal one for your Big Shot (if you have one) – it will save you from lots of heavy lifting and it will always be sitting there, ready to use, with all your dies & folders tempting you for every project you create. I have to confess that my Big Shot lives out in the garage, so I have to consciously think of it when I’m crafting at the kitchen table, then I have to lug it to use then lug it out again.
    AWESOME giveaway today – I LOVE to help you celebrate your 8th Birthday and it would be EXCITING to have a Paper Smooches shopping spree – THANK YOU for the chance to win 🙂

  66. Amy C. April 7, 2014 at 9:19 pm

    I absolutely love that cart! Thanks for sharing your find and also for the great giveaway! Paper Smooches has the cutest stamps!

  67. Wendy Orme April 7, 2014 at 9:21 pm

    Thanks for showing the many uses of this cart…I MUST get one!

  68. Amanda Christensen April 7, 2014 at 9:25 pm

    I love Paper Smooches so much! Thanks for the chance to win some!

  69. Jackie Hart April 7, 2014 at 9:25 pm

    I’ve seen this cart, but loved all the suggested uses. Now I may need more than one!

  70. barbara macaskill April 7, 2014 at 9:48 pm

    NO IKEA in sight near me but I will be owning at least 4 of these babies! One will go next to my bed on my side, one on hubby’s side, one for my dies and machines and at least one more for keeping my scrap papers and small paper pads wrangled.
    I can also see my paints, inks and sprays in one, another one for my stamps, my son’s video games in one, a toiletries/towels filled one in the bathroom, laundry detergent, fabric softener, cleaning supplies in one for the utility room and at least one more for the grandchildren’s art supplies at my house. WOW! I might go broke buying these beauties! Wonder if they give a frequent buyer discount for buying so many? LOL

  71. Heaney April 7, 2014 at 9:51 pm

    great storage idea and it is mobile too…fantastic!

  72. Katie B. April 7, 2014 at 10:07 pm

    Wow, I love that hello card! Love how they made the black font stand out too. And these carts seem wonderful and I love the colors too, I would love to own one but I don’t think that will happen right now! Thanks for sharing.
    Katie B.

  73. Karen aka soccerboyzmom April 7, 2014 at 10:23 pm

    Fabulous prize. I would truly love to win this. You have been so kind to us with give away’s on your birthday.

  74. Violet April 7, 2014 at 10:45 pm

    What a great idea putting the Big Shot in the cart – no more rolling away and slipping off the table! I would love to have a couple of those carts as I am a wee tiny bit of a hoarder and have just a few craft supplies that need homes!!! Too bad we don’t have an Ikea here…or maybe it’s a good job we don’t?

  75. Robin B. April 7, 2014 at 10:58 pm

    Cute card! I love all of the different colored hellos. Thanks for another great giveaway.

  76. Rhonda Merry April 7, 2014 at 11:36 pm

    I bought two of the WM carts. I hold my paints, inks, adhesives. mists and alcohol inks on them. They roll under my desk when not in use and to my work station when needed. They are so cool…almost as cool as The Clash!!

  77. Meredith April 7, 2014 at 11:43 pm

    Perfect timing! I just bought one and was on Pinterest looking for ideas on what to put in it! Can’t wait to put it together! Thanks for the inspiration!

  78. Creative Tara April 7, 2014 at 11:45 pm

    I’ve had this on my wish list for a while… But now that my studio space is more defined, I need one for all my spray inks & colour ing supplies! Beyond that, we will see what there is room for ?

  79. Beverly Jordan April 7, 2014 at 11:51 pm

    Oh my goodness, Loven’ the milk glass with the turquoise cart! And Heidi’s packed with all her goodies…my heart be still!!! I am swooning over it all! Great blog read, Megan!

  80. Carole RB April 7, 2014 at 11:53 pm

    Love those carts

  81. Karen L K April 8, 2014 at 12:10 am

    Cute card! Those carts would be handy to have. Problem for me is I would have to make room for one. My room is crowded. I know I have to much stuff.

  82. Kristen V April 8, 2014 at 12:15 am

    Love the hello card and the die cutting cart was my favorite!

  83. suzanne ponce April 8, 2014 at 12:28 am

    OK guys …. Can’t be that you don’t remember these from years gone by….any one over 50ish…..they used them in hair salons holding all the supplies for doing perms & the little box that held the tissue for wrapping the rod was right on top of the rack!!! I remember them when going in & waiting for our grandma to get her hair done. They were great then & were repurpusing them now!!!!’ awesome

  84. Marcy Helzer April 8, 2014 at 12:38 am

    Love the cart. Love the hello card. Love gift cards! 🙂

    Wow! THANKS for the chance to win!

  97. Penny Douphinett April 8, 2014 at 11:03 am

    There isn’t an Ikea in the entire state of Maine! I like the other carts though – will be looking at them and thanks for the coupon. I think I would use the cart as my color station for everything but my inks. It would be great to coral all my pens, pencils, sprays, paint etc in one place.

  98. Lisa P April 8, 2014 at 11:37 am

    OOH! I want one of those carts. And the Paper Smooches…that rocks too.

  99. Tricia April 8, 2014 at 11:58 am

    Such an amazing cart! I love Paper Smooches!

  100. Jennifer Scull April 8, 2014 at 12:44 pm

    I LOVE my cart and it sits so faithfully beside my craft desk with all of the things I MUST have at hand for all of my projects – watercolor brushes, ATG gun, glue dots, paper cutter, foam tapes, ink squirty tool, and so on. I really need to get at least one more, and love the idea of having one as a bedside table. so much fun!

  101. Leanne S April 8, 2014 at 1:19 pm

    love the cart & thanks for the opportunity to win.

  102. Emily H April 8, 2014 at 2:07 pm

    Oh man! I really want one of these or maybe two or three! I don’t live anywhere near IKEA though. 🙁

  103. Sandi Pressley April 8, 2014 at 2:26 pm

    I love my turquoise Raskog cart….so totally worth th 90 minute trip on way to buy it. I have all my pocket page supplies in it. Thanks for the chance to win a GC to Paper Smooches….which is my #1 favorite stamp company.

  104. sherri p April 8, 2014 at 3:23 pm

    super cute Hello card. Loving the carts

  105. Suzette Weber April 8, 2014 at 4:18 pm

    Truely love all of the ideas! Sigh….another thing to add to my wish list…it keeps growing and growing!

  106. Kailash April 8, 2014 at 6:24 pm

    Such lovely ideas. Thanks for sharing!!

  107. LinhC April 8, 2014 at 6:28 pm

    These are great ideas for using that cart.

  108. Penny kafai April 8, 2014 at 6:47 pm

    I have had my little cart for a while now. I first used it for my big shot and dies and then more recently for my punches. Always on hand ready to use and I now know which ones I have.

  109. Beneta April 8, 2014 at 6:56 pm

    I have a couple of new ideas for the cart. In a kitchen it would be a great place to put onions, potatoes, carrots and some hard to fit bowls or utensils. Putting children’s books in it and all the arts and craft items at arms reach for the little ones.
    Thanks.

  110. Shereen April 8, 2014 at 7:08 pm

    I’ve been admiring that cool cart for a while. If I only had a room to put it in. If I did, I believe I’d be filling it with all my color goodies!

  111. Jean Bullock April 8, 2014 at 7:51 pm

    Well, I love the idea of the big shot fitting in just right in the top shelf. I like the idea that I could even roll the thing over to the sofa and die cut while I watch TV. Doesn’t get better than that.
    I love your big Hello card. I am wild about large die cut sentiments. Looks fab

  112. Carmen L April 8, 2014 at 8:02 pm

    My girls saw this at IKEA and both want one! Make that three of us! Thank you for the great giveaway!!

  113. Julie Pike April 8, 2014 at 8:30 pm

    I’ve been eyeing those Raskog carts for awhile….. they are definitely on my list! Love Paper Smooches! The Love die is just perfect for all kinds of cards.

  114. Danielle April 8, 2014 at 8:31 pm

    What a fun post! I love those carts and have been dreaming of the day I get to own one too. First time I layed eyes on one was at my sisters. She uses hers as a make-up and hair accessories storage. Of course I too was dreaming of how one would look in my scraproom!!!
    What a cute card! Great way to showcase some great paper!!

  115. Anelsie Ramos April 8, 2014 at 8:35 pm

  124. calamityjane April 8, 2014 at 11:30 pm

    I think I’d like to have about 4 of these carts! The idea of a “die-cutting” cart would be how I’d use of them!!! Genius!!!

  125. marylouh April 8, 2014 at 11:35 pm

    Paper Smooches is a great company. I love their stamps. I love that rolling cart. I could really use something like that for my craft room. I’ll be looking for one as a treat to myself.

  126. Sandy Clinton April 8, 2014 at 11:49 pm

  127. Maryann April 9, 2014 at 3:32 am

    These carts are soooooooo awesome, but wondering if Ikea have them here, as I´ve never seen them here ever?? But will definitely have to go again and ask if I still don´t see them here. They´re sooo awesome.

  128. Debbiesiddle April 9, 2014 at 4:20 am

    I am sure glad that you are having a birthday. All the great gifts that you are giving away is fantastic. Every day is a treat. Today with Paper Smooches GC is a crafter’s dream come true. The Raskog cart opens up so many opportunities in the craft room that it would be hard to decide what should be in it. Decisions! Decisions! Decisions!

  159. Maria M. L. April 9, 2014 at 11:35 am

    The teal cart would come in at a very appropriate time as I am in the process of reorganizing my office/craft room/guest bedroom (a big challenge.) Have loved Paper Smooches from afar for a long time, have yet to welcome any of Kely’s wonderful designs into my family, let’s hope this is my lucky week. Thanks for the chance to win some wonderful goodies. Cheers!

  175. jengd April 9, 2014 at 9:36 pm

    I picked one up about a year ago and have used it in a similar manner as you- for my current projects. I just recently switched it to holding items by my workspace that I want to use in the immediate future- paper pads, stamps, embellishments, etc.

  176. Scrappin' Diva - Cindy B April 9, 2014 at 11:59 pm

    I am absolutely i love with Paper Smooches … I love their fun images, they are fantastic for using with copics or watercolors, which I love!
    Thank you so much for the chance to win a GC, this would totally justify the huge amounts I have been hoarding lately! 🙂

  185. Nicole Doiron April 10, 2014 at 4:33 pm

    Not fair! For a second there, i thought i’d have a chance to win one of those aqua-coloured carts that i’ve been drooling over for months!!! There’s no Ikea in my area – hehe But it’s perfectly alright. I would love some Paper Smooches goodies just as much! Thanks for the chance to win! 🙂

  186. Jasmine Ford April 10, 2014 at 8:47 pm

    I DROOL over those Ikea carts every day! I wish the nearest Ikea to me wasn’t a 3 day drive! Great giveaway today, Paper Smooches stamps are excellent, love them!

  187. Sheena B April 10, 2014 at 9:43 pm

    I recently added the cart from ikea in my craft room and am currently using the top to hold my card stock paper scraps. The second level has images waiting to be coloured and the bottom has baby wipes for cleaning stamps, a box of ziplocs I grab for putting my 6×6 paper pads into once I start using them. I’m considering picking up another one for my cuttlebug and spellbinders dies.

  188. Mimi R April 11, 2014 at 1:02 am

    Love paper smooches! Thanks for the chance to win.
