Do you have a dad, mom, boyfriend or husband who is good with tools?
Eilte Tack Designs has a whole catalog of plans for building your own Elite Tack Design - Tack Trunk & Cabinet Plans for English & Western Riders.
If not, I recomend clear plastic drawers you can get at Target for like $30-$50. The come with wheels and you can see everything and they come in a varity of sizes and options for however much space you're allocated. I know that a number of barns are starting to ban the general Tack Trunk as they take up too much room and really are usless for organizing anything.
I have this one in my tack room Sterilite 4 Drawer Storage Cart White : Target
Also look at laundry storage carts or caddies for between washer and dryers. The are usually tall and thin and on wheels. This is great because you can make saddle rack from the top shelf, and they usually can fit tall bottles in the racks or drawers below, plus because they're built to carry heavy chempicals they are usually pretty study. I have a plastic one with drawers and wheels that looks like this one if it were made by the Sterilite drawers above: The Container Store > White elfa Mesh Laundry Storage
Also: Venture Horizon Laundry Caddy at Hayneedle Real Simple Slimline Laundry Utility Cart - Bed Bath & Beyond
Hope this helps!

Tall order, I know, but I've been looking at deck storage boxes and they're either too small or WAY too big. I don't want to take up the whole barn aisle. Anyone have ideas?
