The Container Store- a little slice of organized heaven.

Have you guys ever been to a Container Store before?  If you love to organize things, you would LOVE this place!! The closest one to me is located outside of Washington DC, so obviously I don’t get up there as often as I would like. (Luckily they are also online.)

I did however make a stop there today!  Every time I go in there I feel like a kid in a candy store.  I don’t know what it is, but the thought of all those boxes, and files, and containers just makes me happy.  Anyways, back to my visit today.  Per normal, the minute I walked in the door of the store, whatever mental list of things I wanted to pick up totally escaped me.  Instead, I walked up and down every aisle drooling looking at everything.

Here are two of my top picks from today..

1. Flip and Tumble 24-7 Bag

24-71

This goes along great with my earlier post about reduce reuse recycle.  I have plenty of larger bags to accommodate groceries, but nothing small to stash in my purse for those quick dashes into Target or Marshalls.  This bag is great because it folds neatly into this little ball that can go into your purse.  It then unfolds to a bag that has a padded shoulder strap and can hold up to 25 lbs!!

It also comes in 4 great colors.  I went with the chocolate/blue combo but might have to get the lime green/turquoise combo on my next visit!!

2. Rectangular Crunch Can by Umbra

I thought this was a great idea for a laundry basket. It beats the standard basket by being able to fold flat when not in use.

I think it could also be put to use when traveling, camping, etc.  A great overall bag that will hold a lot, but not take up a lot of space.

It’s a good thing for my wallet/budget that this store is so far away.  I could have walked out of that place with cart loads of organizational tools, but i refrained. Be very proud Mr. vB. Until the next time Container Store.. xoxo.

    Totty, I’ve been such a fan of yours for years. I can’t tell you how excited I am to see that you have your own website now. I was wondering if you get paid for appearances, and, if so, how can we book you? :)
