Shopping at The Container Store Won’t Get You Organized

Share this post:

Here’s a little tip: Do NOT go to The Container Store unless you have already edited and organized your belongings and taken inventory of what storage is necessary. Otherwise you are buying random bins and baskets without a specific use for them. This is no good! I have met more than a few “container hoarders” who are wondering why they own every bin and basket known to man and still aren’t organized!

So, here’s the drill:

1. Edit your belongings.

2. Group items together into categories.

3. Make a list of any necessary containers and take measurements.

4. Shop only for containers that work for your specific needs and are the right size for your space!
