Cheap storage cabinets????? HELP!!!!
 
I do not have enough cabinet space in my kitchen to hold all the pots, pans, mixers, fryers, etc. Right now most of the excess is stacked in a sun-room off the kitchen. There is a bare wall that has outlets at the correct height for a counter top, so apparently the previous owner was thinking of installing cabinets at one time.

The problem I am having is finding CHEAP cabinets, either used, or inexpensive new cabinets. I have gone to the home improvement stores and cabinet stores and do not want to pay the several thousand dollars for fancy cabinets and when I ask about used cabinets I get a blank look.

The wall is 11 1/2 feet long and by putting cabinets with a counter top, and hanging cabinets, I could clear out the mess I have stacked up, and the best part would be able to find stuff when I need to use it.

The previous owner put cabinets up in the garage and I use them to put camping gear, etc. in. I think when he/she replaced the kitchen cabinets with the new ones that are there, the old ones were moved out to the garage.

Anyone with suggestions??????

The problem may be in how you're defining "cheap".
There is a minimum that will have to be paid.

That said... there is also a minimum degree of quality needed to actually work and hold up to use. My new favorite for this is Kitchen Kompact.

Check out Craigs List.com
Look under the heading of "materials" and at the top left hand side enter the word cabinets.
There's always lots of them on there for sale cheap.
