The Container Store
500 Stanford Shopping Center (next to Nordstrom)
Palo Alto, CA 94304
Monday-Saturday 9am - 9pm
The Container Store opened up it's new Bay Area location at Stanford Shopping Center in Palo Alto this past weekend. I love organizing things in my home because I live in a condo where we constantly have a need to organize things better for lack of large storage space. I was invited to a blogger preview of the new store last Thursday and was drooling over all of the pretty and handy things that will help me keep my daily life at home in order.
We got a full tour of the entire store which features more than 10,000 organizational and innovative products. My crafty design eye was keen on all of the beautiful paper goods from wrapping paper to boxes for gifts all the way to cupcake liners and paper straws in the cutest colors and prints. I made a mental note to self for Chloe's upcoming birthday party to stop here first for pretty things.
You can't walk inside and not think of something you will need in your home. I dare you! At the top of my list is a complete kitchen cabinet reorg that I want to happen. I want to get nice dividers for the drawers and things for my cabinets so things aren't falling out when opened.
And moms, can we talk lunch? I am due for updating Chloe's lunch containers and to-go cups for the family.
My closet needs some love as well and I know I am going to get a few of these storage items for handbags and sweaters.
If you feel overwhelmed when you enter the store, never fear! I recommend to write out some of your organizing problems and look for key items online at containerstore.com. Then when you visit the Container Store, make sure to talk to one of the experienced associates that can help steer you in the right direction. Even though the store has items categorized perfectly based on sections and needs of your home, you could very use a kitchen drawer organizer for other rooms in your house such as your bathroom. Happy organizing!
