It’s no secret that I love IKEA. Most of my renovated living room was furnished with pieces from IKEA, lovingly assembled by my son Kell who has a knack for assembling flat-pack furniture I’ve also written blog posts in the past about IKEA-related topics, like my post about “IKEA hacks” a few months ago. (If you missed it, you can check it out at the link below!) Today’s post also concerns IKEA, but this time we’ll be focusing on one particular item—the RÅSKOG utility cart.
This handy, 3-tier rolling cart is one of the most versatile storage items we keep in our studio. (We actually like them so much that we have 4 of them!) These carts only cost about $25 each, and with IKEA’s new lower shipping costs, you could get one shipped right to your door for less than $40! And once you see just how versatile this cart can be, you’ll understand just how great a deal that is.
Before we get to the ideas, I also want to mention that you can find carts that are similar to the RÅSKOG at other stores. Target has a strikingly similar cart listed on their site for $30 (see it here), and I found another one on Amazon for $30 as well (see it here). So even though I refer to the IKEA version throughout this post, you have plenty of options for finding a similar cart at whichever store you prefer. 🙂 So without further ado, here are 8 different ways you can put this versatile cart to work around the house!
