So this past weekend I had the pleasure of being asked to attend a preview of the new The Container Store in Tampa. Talk about excited. I love organization! I adore the process of organizing with the right container for the job even more. Well let me tell you The Container Store does not disappoint at all!
One of the Container Stores signature products is the Elfa system pictured above. They have every nook and cranny covered for organizing your closet and office. Oh how I wish they would just come redo my whole house. Our closets are just dying for some Elfa love. ( I would show pictures but they are not for the faint of heart LOL) One of the things I love about the Elfa system is that it comes in different accent colors such as the black and real wood shown above. For my daughters closet space I would love the wood accent but for mine I would like the black or silver. Just saying! 🙂
Another favorite aspect of the store for me is the Hanger wall. Holy Mac and Cheese Batman!! They carry over 80 styles of hangers. Anything you need to hang they got your covered. I know for me personally hanging my daughters close is the hardest. I loved that they carry the huggable hangers for kids. For those of us that travel they have you covered as well. They have every type of luggage and carrying case you could ever need from iPads to expandable suitcases. (Which reminds me I need to get a new suitcase)
Now when I first saw the laundry basket above I instantly thought of the Jetsons and wished that I could program it to take the cloths to the bedrooms and put the laundry away for me!! Alas it doesn’t do that…YET!! As I was browsing around I came across the other two items that I desperately need. Apparently the bathroom in our new house does not have a toilet paper holder in the master bathroom. To be honest the bathroom is much smaller than our old one and there really isn’t a place that installing one would work well so this Over Tank Tissue Holder is perfect. I have just enough room on the one side for it to go! 🙂 Second we have a pile of socks in our house that I affectionately call the “Parents without partners” pile. See these are the socks that are missing the match. It is in credibly irritating to me that I have so many of these partnerless socks in my house so I desperately need to acquire a pack or THREE of these Sock Cops!!
Before you get to thinking that this store is only for women let me assure you that they have handy men covered too. The Elfa Utility system is amazing. All the solutions they have for organizing your garage, utility and mudrooms is mind-blowing. I can’t think of a better gift for the man in your life then to help them get their “Man Cave/Workshop” organized! Mine would be over the moon!
I love all the different sections in this store. I especially love all the shelving options. I am a girl who loves shelves. I especially loved the idea of organizing the CD’s on the wall in a vertical fashion (pictured in the upper left hand corner). Although my husband has about 2,000+ CD’s! Another great area is the gift section. Many times when I got to a party and take a gift I use a bag or box but why not use a container that is reusable!! Genius!! They have ever size you could need and plenty of wonderful staff to help you pick out the perfect item.
There is no question that my absolute favorite section of The Container Store is the kitchen section. Oh how I just swoon at the thought of all the organizing I could do with what they offer. So many solutions for everyday problems that you can’t help but find something that works for you. I love that they utilize every possible space in your kitchen to make things more accessible and user-friendly. And the best part is that they are inexpensive. Seriously if you have The Container Store near you, you have to go check it out AND if you are in the Tampa area you need to come check out this new store. You won’t be disappointed and you will leave with renewed inspiration to organize everything in your house!! The Container Store is a great way to help us all continue…Making It All Work!!
A Huge Thank you to The Container Store for inviting me to the preview event and for the amazing swag bag!!
