If you know me, then you probably know that I am obsessed with my drawer cart! I keep it right next to my therapy table, and I use it on a daily basis. I’ll show you how I use it, but I’ll also share four more ways you could use this awesome cart! (I might just have to buy more!)

Wondering where to find this cart? You can find it on Amazon here or at a craft store (like Michael’s or Jo-Ann Fabric).
1. Card Decks
I sorted my decks by therapy topic and made labels. I can use the decks with a variety of activities, so it makes for easy, low prep therapy!
Here are some of the decks I love:
- Natalie Snyders – High Stakes Vocabulary
- Nicole Allison – Context Clues
- Peachie Speechie – Inferencing Decks
- Kelly Workman – Tons of decks here too!
You could also use the drawers to store your homework activities/worksheets. You could make packets for every kid and make a label for each day of the week. Another option is to sort by different goal areas (e.g., articulation, vocabulary, etc.). Use paperclips or binder clips to keep your papers organized.
3. Thematic Units
Use these drawers to organize your units! You could keep books, activities, craft templates, etc. all in one place. Use binder clips, gallon bags, or plastic envelopes to keep the pieces together. (Links below!)
4. Craft/Office Supplies
You could use some (or all!) of the drawers for pens, pencils, paint, and other materials. Using plastic organizers would make it super organized!
5. Student Folders
You could keep your working files/folders in this cart, too! Sort by therapy schedule, grade, or group.

I know there must be many more ways to use these drawer carts. Let us know in the comments if you use them for something else!
