Can’t… Contain… Myself…

Notice: I was not paid for this post. This post was not endorsed by The Container Store, and in fact, The Container Store has no knowledge of this post. (And if The Container Store ever does, no, I don’t do giveaways, but I do accept free gift cards loaded with denominations greater than $0!)

I went to The Container Store in Cherry Hill, NJ after work today. I think my favorite hobby/interest next to reading and writing is organizing. The funny thing is I’m rather messy but organized messy. (Ha!)

Here are some of the purchases I made today (subsidized by a $25 Container Store gift card):

Drawer Organizer

Magic Sliding Discs

Storage Container

Receipt File

Business Refill Cards

Clear Letter Rack

6-section Acrylic Organizer

Here’s what I wish I’d gotten:

Letter Tray: for storing documents in a compact space

Acrylic Magazine Sorter – better support for my letter-size folders

3-Section Vertical File – another great option for the clear letter rack or acrylic magazine sorter

Acrylic Desktop Mail Center – more what I was looking for rather than the 6-section organizer

Photo Storage Boxes – for the mementos I currently have sitting in shoeboxes

And if I had more money to blow:

Tweed Shoebox – I have six already and I simply love them! Wish I could purchase more.

Now the problem is that I’m ready to purchase more!

I also love See Jane Work (exclusively online) pieces because they’re so aesthetically appealing but I balk at the pricing.

Basics Letter Tray – I’d choose Black but $25 is hefty for a set of 2.

Paper Tray – I also love the colors of the paper trays but $26 is hefty for a single piece.

Target is also another great place to score affordable home office finds that are well designed. (I’d recommend going to the Home Office section in store rather than browsing online.)

(sigh) I think I’d be pretty happy being paid to organize homes. Just need to address that teensy time management problem now…
