Question Who has the xxl crop in style roller tote?


I wanted to know who has this xxl crop in style navagator roller tote? I saw one online for $79. I feel it would help me just bring to kitchen what I am using that day. My table is a grand mess right now. Hubby said this crop is style would keep kitchen clean. For me it would store enough to make cards. Then everything can be put back and wheeled into my closet. I can just add what I want or take out things I don't want that day.
How much does it hold? I have looked at smaller versions of this tote.
Thanks. Off to make some more cards for Operation Write Home.

XXL Holds so much I couldn't lift it, and got rid of it in favor of something smaller.

I have the XXL and love it! Yes, it will hold a lot. That is also a great price for it. When I go and crop I've started to use this to hold tools and have a smaller tote that I put packets into.

It really is good! Be careful not to load it too much or if you have to carry it it will be very heavy...........

The XXL gets really heavy especially when you're lifting it up and down staircases, and most definitely in and out of your car trunk. But if you're just going to roll it back and forth from one room to another, it's doable. But like everyone else says, it does hold a lot and it will get heavy. But the thing is incredibly sturdy so it will hold up. I've never heard of anyone's breaking. I personally have the size down called the Navigator.

I use it to pack my class supplies when I teach at my LSS. It can be quite deep to reach for supplies at the bottom so I usually pack and categorise into plastic boxes before sliding them in.

I have it and love it. While I don't use it at home, I do pack it for my weekend crop. Makes it super easy to wheel my stuff in. I also have a file folder wheel tote that I use for my paper at crops. I keep my paper stored inside it all the time. You can see the file folder tote towards the end of this video.

I take both the XXL tote and the file folder one to my weekend retreats. Between those two, I can fit almost everything I need and it is all on wheels!!!!

On a side note, in a similar price range, you might want to look at the Stanley FatMax unit which was originally designed for construction and trade workers to carry tools and supplies. I saw one in action at a crop recently and thought it was pretty cool!

Stanley 020800R FatMax 4-in1 Mobile Work Station for Tools and Parts - Amazon.com

Here's link to a scrapper that blinged hers up with some pink, goes well with the black LOL!

And here's someone in North Carolina who has found the FatMax love LOL:

Hope this helps

I used to have the XXL and had to change to the regular navigator. The XXL was too big for me - when I had it all loaded up, it actually left a wheel mark dent on my hard wood floors!
You know what I am using now that I absolutely love? I use a rolling crate from Staples. It's like a milk crate on wheels with a telescoping handle. I can use hanging file folders for paper.
I have been happier with two smaller totes rather than one ginormous one.
