The Second Meander

I have one last meander from our trip to share with those of you who have aspirations of becoming organized. Not that this is surefire way to achieve that goal but it is certainly a place that makes you dream of the possibilities.

We stopped at The Container Store and I took a few photos. These stores are few and far between unless you live in an area where there happen to be a few. We do not have one in North Carolina so it’s always an interesting place to visit. While I didn’t purchase any containers, I thought you all might enjoy this mosaic of photos I took while I was there. I am always amazed at how many different configurations there are for boxes. It’s one of those places that are fun to just wander around in.


You can click on this photo to see the images in a larger size. It kind of reminds me of the chihuahua from that old Taco Bell commercial who said “I think I’ll need a bigger box.”


  1. Pretty pretty, but
    becoming organized..
    what's that?
    Happy Hugs,

  2. You are too funny. I am afraid to go into the container store. I think it would cause a real deficet to my life savings!

  3. Oh wow... .we don't have these in Michigan... we just have Ikea... .I should take pictures there. I'm pretty sure there are some families who have been lost and wandering about that store since the early 90s...

  4. Heather,

    It makes you wonder (as well as wander) if these types of places is where very top secret information is kept - Aisle 942, Row 83, 50th box from the left, 12th box down. I mean how would you ever find it? Then what happens when someone inadvertently buys said top secret information box by accident? Can't you just hear the manager saying, "Well, it was right here just a minute ago! I wonder what happened to it." Ha ha!!

  5. Wow, that is a lot of containers! It seems like you must have to know what you want before you go in, or it would take forever to find just the right thing! I'm from Michigan, too, but I haven't even been to Ikea!

  6. Those are wonderful photos! I am so grateful that we have a Container Store in our area. It's one of my favorite places to hang out on a Saturday afternoon! In fact, I've bought so many of their products, it might have been simpler just to abandon my cluttered apartment and move into the Container Store in the first place!

  7. JLS Hall - I hear ya! All those boxes - such temptations. I would love to see them open a location here. At least then I would know where I could find my family - either wandering the aisles or asleep in the car while waiting!
