Ask my husband about my organizational skills and he’ll likely tell you I make repeated attempts to organize but often go back to the same cluttered messes I am used to. My desk is probably the worst.
One lazy afternoon it will be cleared of clutter. It’s neat and organized. Pens are in the cup holder, notepads are stacked neatly, and you can see more than a few inches of space on the desk.
Now, wait a few hours. During that time some little gremlins come waltzing through my office and start tearing up things up all over again. Miraculously my husband’s desk is spared. But mine? Disaster area. And since we have no maid in a 2-bedroom apartment, well, it’s up to me to get things cleaned and organized.
Here’s where the fun begins:
I joined the ladies of the Vegas Bloggers on May 10 to a special sneak preview of the store at the new location at Town Square on Las Vegas Blvd. We were the first ones to check it out! Yes, even before the media! When I arrived a boxed lunch and swag were waiting. And of course the awesome ladies from the group, including the adorable Wendy with her lime green hat.
Ahh. Friends, food, and kick ass swag. Who can complain? Not me.
We were told the history of The Container Store from its roots in Dallas, Texas when it opened on July 1, 1978 to its commitment to excellence and quality customer service. After the presentation (and realizing how much they seem to love bloggers…how can you not?) we broke up into three large groups for a tour of the store.
What I loved most about this store? Besides the incredible organization of course. They had quite a few items there from kitchen to laundry to office and so much more that is affordable for this gal’s modest budget. Let’s just say I will be spending a decent amount of time there when I can to get my home neat and organized.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some killer swag to go play with.
If you had $5,000 to go nuts in this store and get your home organized, where would you start? Kitchen? Bathroom? Office? Something entirely different?
