Knowing The Right Items Save Time!

Filed Under: Basic Organizing

Nearly everyone I meet enjoys going to The Container Store to feel the sense of organization and to see all the neat gadgets and ideas on display. I must admit, I am a sucker for the store myself. Everything has its place, neatly labeled or perfectly itemized and stored-the complete opposite of most of our homes.

Unfortunately, those same people I meet find it overwhelming and difficult to know exactly what you need, how you would use it, and what would work in your particular space back at home. Sometimes we, including myself, overspend because something might fit at the store but doesn’t meet our needs at home.

The solution- write a specific list! Write down the dimensions of the storage space- it could be the inside of a drawer, cabinet, closet, or shelving unit. Determine the area in your home which is the top priority, then stick to that area in the store and bypass every other section which does not apply. Finally, make it even easier on yourself. Shop online.
