I've got a few more that aren't shown in the picture there, because they don't stack on top of the others since they're too tall for the ceiling. At my size of collection, I'd rather get more of the short drawers like the top 4 than the deep ones like the bottom 3, but Wal*Mart doesn't carry them.
Stacking them too high is precarious--they tend to sway side to side. The stepladder wouldn't be a problem for me, since I'm quite tall though.
Peppermint Pig - I thougth about using the food storage containers, but when I was looking, they were all of the ziplock/glad style, which have a wide rim and are taper out pretty far on the top, which makes them not fit nicely in the drawers I was using.
About the thinner 7-drawer model - I was at Walmart this morning and checked, it was selling for $28, which seems steep.

Even with the regular sterilite towers, once you start stacking them and adding weight, the very bottom drawer is tight to pull out. This is because there is a lack of support/bad engineering for the very bottom frame sitting on the floor. That said, I have these on carpet, and that might be why... The lip under the drawer which is part of the frame bends up creating less space to pull it out. This could probably be solved with a little MacGuyver engineering.
