Actually 2! (One for a friend.) I have already put mine together....super easy! They were $37.00 each regular $52.00...so I guess that's a good deal.

Also, Lowe's said they do not give teacher discounts. Maybe I asked the wrong person. I didn't have my ID anyway, however who else would by this M-F cart if they were not a teacher???!! hehehe!

I went today, along with another teacher friend, and got one. It was very easy to put together. Hopefully it will help me stay more organized this year! Thanks to all the posters for letting us know about these wonderful products. I didn't even think to ask about the teacher discount though!

The infamous Cart

I originally posted this as my favorite purchase. It is great for holding EVERYTHING you need for each day of teaching - papers, manipulatives, teacher manuals, etc. I LOVE IT!!! Since I shared this with the world, Lowe's has sold tons of these. Here is the pic of what started it all!

Glad you got one today! It was easy to put together. I did that this morning and took it to my classroom. It looks great! My principal was wondering why I was there! i had to put my director's chair and cart from Lowe's in my room!

I really hope it is super easy to put together...DH is doing mine right now & not too thrilled I'm sure he is even less happy that I'm sitting here on the computer as he is reading the directions to one of my "contraptions" he just told our DDs....

Directions said it would take 15 min to assemble, so I knew it would take me 30. By myself I got it done in 25. I wonder why some haven't had the deeper discount yet...mine was $21.99.

I got one a couple of years ago and I love it! I put all of my materials in it for the week and when I have a sub all the materials are in it! The students use it too, when I tell them to get something for their table or if they have to save something for the next day I tell them to put it in the blue wednesday bin. Everyone else in school loves it too! My sister and I looked the other day in Lowe's for it for her, but we couldn't find it! What aisle did you find it in? I thought I found mine in the storage/organization aisle.

I got the M-F cart today but had to pay full price!! But I do love it! Mine is wobbly though--I am not great on putting things together. Does anyone have any secret to keep it from wobbling? Also, how do you get the wheels on the bottome to stay on? Thanks, Nanny

There are little black casters that fit on the bottom first.....then you add the wheels. Look for those!

You really have to push in those black thingys on the bottom legs before you push in the wheels. Then, make sure you push in the wheels hard so they lock. You should feel it click in good. It takes some pushing. I had mine turned upside down so I could get some muscle behind it when I pushed them in.

Mine isn't wobbly at all. Make sure you use the little allen wrench to really tighten the screws of those 4 long silver rods that hold the two side frames together.

Jalon--okay, I told you I was challenged putting anything together!!!! Do you push those black things in untill they are flush with the legs or do you leave some "sticking out"? I pounded mine in until they were even with the legs and the rollers don't have anything to go on to. THanks for your help!!!! Nanny
