It’s no secret that we LOVE The Container Store here at I Heart Planners. We laugh that we could literally spend all day in that store – wandering up and down the aisles, dreaming of the Elfa Systems we would put in our homes, trying to find the perfect use for every single organizing product. So…one day, Shelby and I did just that. We went to our local Container Store and found our favorite organizing products. Click the image below to tag along via video on our shopping trip:
Here are some of our favorite Container Store Items.
We both love these multi-purpose bins. They are hands-down my favorite. If I had to pick just one thing, this would be my #1 pick. These bins are extremely versatile. They come in small, medium, large and extra-large sizes. I use these in my office, my laundry room, my pantry, and the car for my kids toys. They are clear, so you can easily see what is stored inside and they easily go with any decor. The best thing is, they are very affordable and they do occasionally go on sale – double win!
I also love these Bisley File Drawers. They come in a number of sizes and a number of fun bright colors. The drawers are really thin, so it’s perfect for storing paper in your office. They also have a number of inserts that you can put inside the drawers for even more organization. You can get a small one for storing small desk supplies like paper clips or rubber bands. The large insert is perfect for storing photos. With these organizers, you can really fit a lot of stuff into these small five drawer cabinets.
Who doesn’t love Elfa??? There is so much you can do with The Container Store’s Elfa Systems. They are 100% customizable. You can pick the drawers, the shelf size, design style, color, and more. I use this system in my office and in my master closet, but they work great for pantries too! These are a bit pricey, but every February they go on sale for 30% off, so that's a great time for an indoor project!
If you need help organizing your fridge, I have the tool for you. These fridge bins come in all different shapes and sizes. So you can configure them to fit any style or brand of fridge. It's amazing how much room you can save with some simple organization.
These organizers are brilliant! They are made of a sturdy acrylic and are super easy to wash. The best part is that you can adjust the dividers in the tray. So you can make this tray fit your items perfectly. Did I mention you can stack the trays on top of each other too?
The quality of these bins is outstanding! They are made with a thick, clear acrylic. The inside has a thick rubber bottom so items don’t move around in the bin. They also have rubber feet underneath them, so they won’t slide around in your drawers either. They come in a number of shapes and sizes so you can customize them to fit in your space.
Shelby is a big tea drinker and loves this tea organizer to store all of her flavored tea bags. There are a number of options available at The Container Store for tea storage, but this one allows you to easily store a variety of tea bags in your drawer. It’s cute and convenient.
This is one of the most versatile items at The Container Store. It’s in the kitchen section, but you can really use it in any room in your house. It’s a circle container with dividers, and it spins. It’s also acrylic so it’s really sturdy and you can see through it. The sky's the limit on what you can put in here.
These are just some our favorite organizing items. There are so many great organizing tools at The Container Store. I feel like I find something new almost every time I walk in the store! I hope this helps you tackle your next organizing project!
