Organizing with The Container Store

This past Thursday, I had the pleasure of attending a preview of The Container Store before it opened here in Tampa on Saturday! They really rolled out the red carpet for us bloggers and I had a wonderful time touring the store and learning about their magical organizational products.

I flat out drooled over their Elfa closet system, open kitchen shelving and brightly colored step cans. I don’t know what it is about colored trash cans, but I just LOVE them. I think it goes back to the orange one that Miranda had in her kitchen on Sex and the City, but I digress…You can bet I’ll be back at the Tampa store on the regular. After all, it’s spring cleaning time baby. And mama’s ready to get more organized!

Disclosure: I was not compensated for this post, but did receive products at the event. The opinions expressed are my own.

    I remember the first time I encountered a Container Store. It was located right next to my college campus, and mom and I were floored by how amazing it was! Soon threafter they opened one in Miami— I love that place! My shelves in my home office are from there, and I find as though I need them to come in and arrange every corner of my house!!

    I always go to the Container Store for something specific, and then walk out with 10 more things! Love this place!

    What I wouldn’t give for a week of uninterrupted bliss at the Container Store. SO MANY IDEAS, so little time.
