Very handy storage option, especially for arts & crafts, sewing, screws, nails, odds and ends etc. Good price when compared elsewhere.

DONT DO IT!!

This is where cluttering begins.

Then you will fill them and go and buy more and so on until cluttering becomes the norm. The stuff in these drawer units is still there 20 years later - mainly unouched but kept 'Just in case'. More clutter and even more is stored and another 20 years passes and the same stuff still fills these 'Handy' compartments......and on........and on...........And on it goes!!!


Then you pop yer clogs and your poor children are left with a HUGE problem to sort out or chuck EVERYthing into a skip.

Don't do it.

The cost of a walk (or cycle if you own a bike) to your closest ALDI!


Would these be suitable for electronics components? e.g. Resistors, Capacitors, ICs and micro-controllers? I always worry about static!

No need to worry about static for passive components like resistors and capacitors. The only thing really you need to take care with static is mos based ic's, just buy some anti-static foam pads and push the IC's into the pads before putting them in the storage draws.

Cheers, Saw this while in the queue!


The 32+1 set are 59x110x34mm + 283x105x47mm respectively.

They come with 32 little plastic seperators so you can divide some of the drawers into 3, Like so:

Actually as a self confessed hoarder, I have to agree with the sentiments of this post. Just buying storage to put your junk in does indeed facilitate more hoarding.

If you genuinely have say, lots of screws, bolts to sort in your garage, are a electronics hobbyist with lots of resistors etc than these things are genuinely useful, but only if you take the time to sort the stuff out and then be disciplined enough to keep it sorted. Too often people just chuck things in a heap and then it gets harder, not easier to sort out. It's going to take me literally hours to sort out my stuff (which I am going to do if it kills me!) simply because I had no discipline in putting it away

I agree it can cause hoarding BUT not if your as said disciplined to now and then sorting them out, I have a small one I can carry around for screws etc that I sort now and then and chuck out parts I dont/never will use. It's moderation again, they are handy just dont let it get on top of you.

Thanks for such a detailed reply, really appreciate the dimensions/picture!
Also, how big are the complete units?
Are these metal or plastic?

I bought a 44 drawer from PVR Direct for £18 and you get free delivery on your first order.

You get 40 small draws (8 rows x 5 columns), 3 medium and 1 large draw. You don't get any dividers but they are easy to make and it is made out of metal.

I use it for electronic components, just use anti-static foam or bags for cmos.
Wonder if these would be good for storing the kids moshi monsters?
The small draw sizes are 53wx40hx140d (excluding handle) from PVR, made by Racco.

I feel like buying 3 of these Aldi ones, you can never have enough draws.

These are plastic, but the shell feels very sturdy. The drawers are a bit flimsy. I just noticed they have small cut outs on the front which would hold a bit of card for a label if you cut it precisely.

You mean this one:

The Racco stuff is nice, but Its £9 more (however you don't have to pick it up, if you don't miss the delivery)... Thats quite a good deal, possibly worth posting!

i think keeping sewing accessories in drawers is a bit different from hoarding. hoarders just dont understand the concept of keeping what you want, and selling what you dont.

you wouldnt exactly put screws in a display cabinet
The PVR one has gone down £3 as well. It is a good deal with free next day delivery on your first order. The quality is definitely good, made out of metal and I have cut out some card to fit in the front draws for labels. Yeah, these also have slots for labels.

It is only £7 more and larger than the Aldi one.

It is worth a HotUKDeal. May post it later unless someone else wants to do it. I have to go out.
