Solving Problems at ... The Container Store

The day before Christy flew back to England, we made a quick dash into The Container Store, for something she needed. I have driven by that store so many times and was rather afraid to go in ... I love organizational things and did not want to get sucked in.

But this day was perfect ... we were in a big hurry and I had only 10 minutes to do a quick browse. I was not looking for anything in particular, but for under ten dollars, I solved two problems that had been bugging me for ages

Dave likes to keep his keys here 
Our keys now have a happy home here ... which we both like.

Happy home on fridge
My delicious sea salt from Penzeys Spices came in a zip lock bag and it would not zip shut anymore. (Spices were really important and added lots of flavor on my recent diet.) I found an adorable mini canning jar ... perfect.

 I wish that all of my issues could be solved for ten dollars at The Container Store.

Do you have a favorite organizational store near you?

  1. "The Container Store" - sure sounds like a fun place! I love little organizing helps. Glad you found some things in even a short visit!

  2. There is a Container Store nearby and I, like you Glenda, have pretty much stayed away! That is because I need quite a bit of storage solutions ( like 3 stacking pull out bins, etc)

    You found a couple of terrific solutions!

    All the Best!

  3. I try to keep away from The Container Store because I too love all things organizational. Plus, IKEA is closer and they have lots of fun things!!

  4. I'm a Container Store "groupie"! My first visit to one was in Atlanta. Remind me to tell you of that "adventure" when we next see each other. It is a doozie!

    Best,

  5. I have only been to the Container Store online and it's ironic, I just ordered a hamper for hubs. I'm sure I could have a field day in there. I love the little salt jar, it's perfect for that little pinch you need. The key holder is very smart!

    XO,

  10. We have a shop called Lakeland in the UK that sells every wonderful thing you can imagine to organise your home - one of those shops where you don't realise what you need until you step right inside!!!
