The Container Store: A Professional Organizer’s Heaven…A Disorganized Person’s Mecca

Written by Samantha Pointer

I love organizing! I mean I really do. It is the one thing in life I would do for free if I didn’t need money. (But I need money!)

Samantha PointerSo when I was invited for a sneak peek at the new Container Store in Nashville I was beside myself with giddyness. I have been waiting all my life for this store to come to my town and now it was finally here. As I walked through the doors for the first time I only saw a small bit of organizing boxes and thought to myself “is this it?” But I only needed to lift my head a little more when I saw the double escalator leading downstairs to where all of the real action was.


I was like a kid in a candy store as I glided down the escalator and was met with a huge array of options to organize every single inch of your home. I was having sensory overload! This place was amazing! It’s one thing to see things on a website but a totally different thing when you are in person and can touch and feel. I instantly had hundreds of ideas of how to use the different products I saw to help my clients and me to be more organized. Row after row of glorious organizing gear.

I am so glad that Nashville now has this option here in person and us organizers don’t have to try to find places to get these great organizing products in a timely manner for our clients.

If you haven’t done so already you need to go check this place out. They are open from 9am to 9pm. You are sure to find something to get organized or in the least bit inspired on the possibilities of getting organized. If you are a internet shopper and prefer to shop on their site you can now purchase online and then go to their valet pickup at the store to have your items brought out to you. That is so cool! Talk about your curbside service. This place has thought of everything and as always there is someone there to help you choose your products and to help you know what to do with it when you get it home.

So go now! I’ll be here when you get back or you just may run into me there. It’s my new favorite place in town!
