Spend a little bit of extra money and buy something made of real wood instead of horrible particle board.
I bought a book case. It was a saunder book case. The book case was made of cheap particle board. In the end I blame myself as well for buying a cheap book case but I did pay $150 so it would be nice if it lasted me until I moved out. Instead it collapsed on itself.
I inquired to the company for help and they said it was my issue which I agree to a degree. My choosing of a bad product resulted in a bad experience and it collapsing on itself.
For some reason, reading the other reviews, there is a person defending Saunder. I do not know why. I assume he works for the company but the comments are always anonymous.
Monetary Loss: $400.
