I love having cabinets on wheels. I have a large, wardrobe sized cabinet with
double doors. Inside are about 40 pull out bins in which I keep supplies.
This is on wheels (although I don't have to move it much). This was ordered
about 5 years ago from one of the supply catalogs...I still see them... and it
costs about $1100.

Another favorite piece of equipment is a double sided bookcase I inherited
form the library. I keep often used supplies on it in plastic baskets (glue,
scissors, markers, pencils, etc.). I wheel it out into the middle of the room
so that each of my 4 groups can easily reach the supplies from their
corresponding section on the bookcase. We can easily check to see that all
supplies are back in place before I wheel it away from the middle of the
room. The top is a formica surface which is a handy place for extra materials
the class may need. This bookcase is about 4 feet tall and 5 feet wide. The
shelves are about 8 inches deep on each side.

My art room was remodeled last summer and I love the sinks. I could have
chosen built in sinks with counters, etc., but I chose those plastic utility
sints. Three children can wash up at one time. I have 4 sinks with a sturdy
plastic step up stool under each for the little ones. I teach k-8. The sinks
are deep enough to hold bulky items that need to be dumped somewhere to be
washed...and there is still enough room for hand washing because these sinks
are so deep. The sinks are lined up on one wall with about 3 or 4 feet in
