Disclosure: I was compensated to attend a private party to celebrate The Container Store’s grand opening in Overland Park, Kansas. This post also contains affiliate links. However, all opinions are my own.
Before yesterday, I had no idea that heaven existed here on earth! WOW! The Container Store has everything you could ever dream and more. Plus, their bright colors and patterns make organizing so much more fun!
When I heard The Container Store was coming to Kansas, I was absolutely thrilled! I had never been to one of their stores before and was eager to check out their products. My mom and two of my girlfriends attended the party last night and enjoyed plenty of good food and champagne while browsing the store and looking at all of their awesome products.
If you want to organize any part of your home, this is the place to go! Whether you’re an OCD organizer like me or someone who finds organizing to be stressful, you have to check it out. The staff at both of the blogger tour and private party were so friendly and helpful. Simply, tell them what you want to organize and they will suggest all the products you need to get organized.
A lot of their products are sold in bright colors and/or fun patterns which makes it impossible not to be excited about organizing your home! I really loved their Prism Stockholm Collection, which is part of the Summer Sale. This collection is the perfect pop of color (and print) for your home office! (For something more subtle, check out the Stockholm Grey collection.)
I also fell in love with their Pippi drawer organizers. I will definitely be purchasing a few of these to organize the top and middle drawers of my new filing cabinet. I love that they combined grey, a bright color, AND polka dots all in one product! These would also be a cute way to organize your bras, underwear, tights, socks, etc. in your dresser drawer.
Speaking of organizing your clothes, did you know that The Container Store has their own closet system? You only need to know 2 things: it’s called TCS Closets and they are gorgeous!! The drawer pulls and everything are totally customizable and they are so well-built. I walked into the closet they had set-up and immediately felt like Carrie Bradshaw. The closet was huge and the drawers were all different. Some had velvet organizers for jewelry, others had tall dividers for sweaters, and one drawer even had a tilt-out hamper for dirty clothes – genius!
In addition to adding a LOT of products to my wish list, I also filled my belly with delicious food! There were different food stations set up around the store with mini sandwiches, BBQ sampler jars with grits, BBQ beef and coleslaw, three different kinds of gazpacho, cakes and pies (my favorite!), and even an Asian station. All of the food was served in TCS containers and styled around The Container Store products which I thought was awesome and extremely creative!
Thank you so much to The Container Store for having us! We had an amazing time and as I mentioned, I have a HUGE wish list of products that I can’t wait to buy! If you’re in the Kansas City area this weekend, RUN (do not walk) to The Container Store on 119th Street and Roe Ave!
