The first time I heard of The Container Store was over 4 years ago, reading the blog I Heart Organizing. It sounded amazing and I was disappointed that we didn’t have a storefront. Now, my blogger dreams have been answered.
The Container Store has come to Michigan!
They opened up their first Michigan location over the weekend in Novi, and another location will be following later this year in Troy. I have my fingers crossed that they’ll open some further west in the future.
To mark this occasion, The Container Store hosted a blogger preview event before the opening which I attended. I also attended a VIP Event, which was a blast! Check out the tag #containnovi on your social media of choice to see posts by others who went to these events.
Walking through The Container Store was very exciting! I found myself wanting to buy EVERYTHING! I seriously need it all. There is no shortage of supplies for all of your organizational needs at The Container Store. However, if you’re not feeling as inspired as I was, you’ll be excited to hear that they offer an in-home organization service.
Even if you can’t afford to pay to have them come out and organize your house, they can help you with free consultations. The employees at The Container Store really know their stuff and can tell you just what you need to do to get your household under control!
I have too many favorite things to include them all. But I’ll tell you about a few of them.
First off, look at that price point! That is SO affordable! These containers could be used for many different things. One thing that comes to mind is that it would fit train tracks perfectly.
They have so many different stacking bins. I liked the idea of these for my fridge, while my husband preferred ones with an open front.
There are so many things to love at The Container Store!
OK – these have to be my favorite out of everything! They have a complete seal, so they would be great for storing things seasonally or things the boys have outgrown. I love that even the largest size is affordable, too.
The 6.5 qt tote is pictured on the right, and I think that would be perfect for storing sensory materials, or small arts and crafts supplies.
Mostly I just thought this party tub was adorable. I can just imagine keeping sidewalk chalk and bubbles in it over the summer.
I want this footlocker. I want it so much, but I don’t even know what I want to do with it yet. Give me time and I’ll figure it out, though.
Aren’t these so cute? They could be used for blankets, stuffed animals, toys… anything!
I think this one is my second favorite. The smart store system is great! They have premade dividers to fit into these larger containers, but they also have little individual ones so that you can mix and match to create exactly what you need.
If you ever find yourself near a location of The Container Store, you need to check it out! It’s mom paradise! And if you’re in Southern Michigan, be sure to check out their new store in Novi across from Twelve Oaks Mall:
