Default Is this a worthwhile investment?

Anyone got one of these "Lazy Susan" type of desk caddies? It looks very cool! Is it worth US$50.00 and are there other similar products on the market that are better than this?

I use a Pampered Chef tool turnabout. http://www.pamperedchef.com/our_prod...ategoryCode=KW
It doesnt have little pockets like the other one, but holds lots of stuff.

Michaels has the smaller tote with tons of pockets on sale for 12.99 (reg. 19.99). I've been thinking I might just dig up one of those rubbermaid turntables from the back of the kitchen cabinet and put it on that. Waaay cheaper!

Really, I do think there are alternatives that are less expensive. Maybe not as cool, lol, but leave some money to purchase other stuff!

I've seen that thing at Ben Franklin and while it's cool and I like that it spins and stuff, I just can't see spending that much money on it. Like someone mentioned, there are plenty of cheaper alternatives out there.

I am thinking I would get sick of the looseness of the loops and pockets. I mean you would have to be paying attention to get the item correctly into the loop or pocket they are so tight and baggy KWIM? I like something rigid I can sorta toss stuff at and it lands inside.

Actually, they aren't as loose as they look. I LOVE mine! When I first got it I couldn't figure out what to put in it... Now, I don't know what I did without it!

I got an old lazy susan at Goodwill for $2 a tool caddy for 75cent, and I'm set. I put some little clear containers around the outside and I love it. I always look for container that I can use for my crafts at the "wheel of fortune"....the Goodwill.

The Papered Shef turn arond is nice, but a bit pricy!

I went to Wal-Mart and got a nice black spin holder for under $5.00! It holds everything I need right at my finger tips and does not take up my whole counter! The rest was spent on STAMPS!

What department in WalMart? Is it household, tools, office?
Thanks!

I use the Pampered Chef one as well. I love it. I had it on my counters for a couple of years, then decided I wanted clear counter space (yes, that was just an excuse to use it in my craft room! ) So I feel I have more than gotten my $$ out of it. I like the PC one because they are so sturdy.

I also have the Pampered Chef one, and love it. My friend has the black Wal-Mart one and she loves hers just as much, it's a bit smaller than the PC one!

For Wal-Mart - Look on the aisle that has all the kitchen utensils. They come in black only! I have my heat gun in the middle, pens, pencils, scissors, glasses, brushes, and a lot more in all the compartments around the heat gun!

I bought a tool tote at my LSS that I *love!* It holds everything and if you're stamping or scrapping away from home you can pick it up and take it with you. I recommend it to everyone. Here's a link where you can see it: http://www.scrapjazz.com/reviews/sho...p?product=1052

Another Pampered Chef turn about happy customer!!

It is just big enough to keep my most frequently used items, The rest are in drawers. I tried a cheap Wal Mart one to see if this system would work--it did, but the cheap-o was too small. I handed it down to my dd and I got the Pampered Chef one. Now I am a Happy Stamper!

Yep, I use a Pampered Chef one too. It works great. Although I find that a LOT of tools can make it too heavy to 'spin' around well.
