Default USES FOR RASKOG CARTS (or similar)

Has anybody ever used a Raskog cart at a retreat or crop?

If you have I would love to hear some ideas! Please share pics too?


This is mine almost empty and waiting for re-org to attend a weekend retreat in mid-February.

I'm thinking of taking mine this weekend to a small crop. I need to see if it fits in my car first though. I took it once last year, but I still had a mini van at that time. When I took it last year, I seatbelted it in because I didn't want it tipping over. LOL

You can buy covers for your Raskog carts on Etsy. They look very well made.

Raskog is so great that it has it's own Facebook page, Pimp My Raskog. There you will see 1000+1 uses for this versatile little cart. Thank you for the link to Etsy for custom covers. That looks much better than the drawstring ,mesh laundry bag I used.

I have a tall cart from The Container Store. It will fit in my suv. I take it with me all the time. I can sort things into the drawers. It makes it easier than a bunch of totes because I can roll this into where I'm staying.

I see now Target has a similar cart & Costco has a 4 layer one! I love my Raskog. I have hung all kinds of things on the sides to hold more stuff!

I have three carts:

First Cart:
This is my working cart: pens/pencils/scissors/ tools on top.
2nd shelf is my personalized stamps/ templates/ page maps/ baby wipe container
3rd shelf is : sponge daubers/ stamp cleaner/ adhesive/ other stuff that I need

Second cart is my Big Shot cart:
I took the top shelf and flipped it over so it makes a flat surface on top: the is where my big shot stays and where I use it, roll it to my desk, work with the big shot, keep it there or roll it out of the way.
second shelf: big shot tools and plates and platforms
3rd shelf:
Tim Holtz distressed inks in the tins/ current Stampin' Up catalog


3rd cart is my art cart:
top shelf is all markers sorted by color families. markers include SU markers, copics, tombow/ distress markers/ and sharpies
2nd shelf is other coloring mediums: SU water colored pencils, prisma colored pencils/ ink swatch chart
3rd shelf is where I store new products that I haven't used yet but I want to use soon. and things that I am going to alter.

Hope this helps!!

You gals must be strong! There is no way I could lift mine filled up! I suppose you could bring the stuff in bags and set it up there if it was a long crop.

Some crops I've been to didn't have much room either so maybe ask the coordinator before bringing it.

Wow! Taking your cart along to a crop or stampy event! In some sort of very fun way, I think this is bordering on crafty-genius! Of course, lifting & seat-belting a loaded cart could require a cute & strong cabana boy or similar, but still!

Mine barely fit into my car. I'm sure it was humorous watching me trying to wrestle it in there. It is heavy!! It fit into the front passenger seat on the floor.

Good point. I noticed on one emailed crop announcement that wagons and certain types of large wheeled carts weren't allowed. (I don't remember exactly which carts since I don't crop.)
