Default Color Caddy... Do you love it???

Please tell me your thoughts about the color caddy, I really need some type of ink storage, but having a hard time dishing out that much $$ when there are stamps and accessories to buy! Please advise....

Thanks!

Hate it! It wobbles and is hard to spin it works better with a lazy susan under it but still stinks!
this one is pricy I know but SO worth it in my opinion! Doesn't wobble is strudy strong and spins well! http://www.bcdservices.com/suink/store/pid_6.htm

I have two ink storage things; one is a Portaink that I got before SU! came out with the Color Caddy, which is my other one. The Portaink is nice, spins nicely and all, but it takes up more room on my stamping table and it is less portable. I can pick up the Color Caddy by the handle and move it easily with one hand, the Portaink needs two hands to move. Once you fill the Color Caddy up, it is much less wobbly. I bought the extension kit so I could put my neutrals and In Colors in as well.

I love mine. After I added the extension to accomodate in colors, basic colors, etc., it did have a tendency to wobble. But, it has been one of the greatest additions to my stamping space.

I really like mine. I labeled each side with the color families. Mine doesn't wobble and it's only half full (guess I need to buy more ink!)

I have the Color Caddy and really like it. It's almost full and is very stable, no problems turning it. When I need more ink storage, I'll buy a second one.

I like mine. I have it on a lazy susan. I want to buy the extender to fit all my In Colors and craft inks.

I love mine. It's got an extender and it's full. I don't know where I'd even put a second one.

I found that if I have trouble turning it (i.e. the handle wobbles), the handle is loose. Just tighten up the handle, and, POOF, it turns, NO PROBLEM!

I own 2 Color Caddy's and they're both full (one for Classic and one for craft inks) and love them. They were filled up as soon as I put it together and I've never had a problem with them

I love mine, too. I have the extender in it and don't have any problems turning it.

OMG I can't believe how perfect that storage system is! I have to get one now, I don't have enough inpads to fill one up, but I'm sure I will soon! I love organization tools and I have to say, ink has been a challenge to try to keep neat! Thanks for sharing thatlink!
