I’d like to explain how desperately we needed a way to organize our shoes and the kids’ school bags, but it’s easier to just show you.
This is what the area by our back door looked like before and after installing the Easy Track organizer:
The Easy Track system has given us places to store everything - and only took a couple of hours to put together.
Let me just say, we would not have bought this if I hadn’t won the majority of it in a competition. We do things on the cheap – thus the reason that all the shoes were kept in a basket, shoved under a table.
This system may be more expensive than the self-build stuff we normally buy and there’s a reason for that.
I cannot tell you how impressed I am with how easy it was to put together or how sturdy and well built the pieces are.
Take the drawers, for instance. The drawers come flat-packed. Here’s one laid out flat on a piece of cardboard.
Each side of the drawer is attached at the corner to its buddy by a sort of hinge:
I love it!
Everything comes flat packed and the hardest part is hanging the rail that the provide at the right level on your wall – which really isn’t all that hard at all!
It all links in from there. The main pieces just hook onto that and you tie them together with the shelves and other stuff.
Easy-peasy. So easy in fact that even I could do it!
I’ve gotta say, I’m really pleased with how it came out and am really impressed with the construction of the materials. This thing is built to last!
The systems are designed for closets, mainly, but as we’ve shown, they can be used anywhere and the large number of configuration options make them really versatile.
So let’s see how they score:
- Good quality, strong materials
- Ridiculously easy to put together
- Lots of options so you can customize it the way you want
- Friendly, helpful staff
- The price. It’s a little expensive in our opinion, but you do get good quality for your money so, on balance, the price isn’t BAD, nor is it great.
- It’s HEAVY! I guess it needs to be heavy to be sturdy and well made but it can be a little tricky lifting some of the pieces into place.
