a simple drawer like this costs almost $50. but with a bit extract, you can get a 3 drawer dressers. nothing great quality but the closetmaid isn't something great either.

can I buy dresser with drawers and use that in the closet? anyone did that or saw that?

Also can I just use the drawers on my shelves directly and throw the dresser frame away?

If you have room, there's no reason a dresser or chest of drawers can't go in a closet. Just make sure you have room to open the drawers enough to get to the contents.

The closet systems are expensive because they can charge that. And, because they're semispecialized.

You can absolutely put a regular dresser into a closet!

And I think it's a smart move.

Of course, you have to be sure it'll fit, and Annkh is smart to remind you to check whether you can open the drawers. (dressers are often a little deeper than a closet system)

I have a dresser in my kid's closet. It's one of those ultracheap ready-to-assemble ones, w/ the bottoms that pop out easily. But it's been working for something like 16 years. I'd intended to replace it when my daughter got older, but I was too lazy and it was still functioning.

You can also just put a bookcase in a closet instead of shelves.
