My personal favorite use for a rolling cart is a mobile bar — not only does it make it easy to entertain guests in any room, but it frees up my kitchen cabinets for other kitchen staples. But, did you know rolling carts aren't just for stocking libations? There are so many ways to use rolling carts for storage, convenience and items that don't have a designated place in your home. Rolling utility carts make great additions to dorms, too. Check out some of our favorite ways to use rolling carts, from storing craft supplies to cleaning essentials. Plus, we've rounded up some of the best three-tier carts, many of which come in multiple color options, that you can buy for under $50 right now.

For Craft Supplies

We all dream of having an entire room designated for craft supplies, but most of us don't have the space for that. A rolling cart is a great solution to store and keep all your craft or hobby supplies at hand. Attach a towel bar to store your washi tape, and use magnetic containers to hold small items to maximize storage space.

For Cleaning Supplies

To make cleaning a little less painful, I find it easier to have all my cleaning supplies in one spot where I can easily move them from room to room. Store all your cleaning essentials in a three-tier rolling cart and easily move through each room — it saves time and the hassle of lugging around all those cleaning supplies.

For Drinks

I've said it once, and I'll say it again: A rolling cart is perfect for storing any items you need to serve cocktails. I love having the freedom of entertaining in my living room without having to go back and forth to the kitchen to serve drinks. Plus, you can deck out a plain bar cart with festive stickers to match the theme of your party.

For Gift Wrap Storage

Free up that closet space and under-bed storage, and place all your gift wrap supplies in a rolling cart. It's super convenient to know exactly where everything is when you need to wrap a gift last minute.

Bows, tissue paper, gift boxes, oh my! Instead of tossing these in a box (where they'll surely get smashed), repurpose a rolling cart. Blogger Whitney Mier of This Little House of Mine chose the IKEA Raskog utility cart for her quick and easy wrapping station.

For Coffee Essentials

If you lack counter space, keep all your coffee essentials on a bar cart instead. Or, if you can only wake up to the smell of freshly-brewed coffee, keep a coffee station in your bedroom and set the coffeemaker on auto.
