Blogger Preview Party for The Container Store

It was so good to get out of my normal routine yesterday and head down to Arlington, TX for a Blogger Preview Party at the new Container Store opening in Arlington, TX this weekend.  If you know me, you know that The Container Store is one of my ALL time favorite stores.  I love that there is a store completely dedicated to making organizing a do-able task.  No matter what your budget, you can walk into The Container Store and know that you can find the perfect item for your organizational needs.

When I arrived at the new and beautiful store in Arlington, I was greeted by two amazing team members from the Public Relations department at the Home Office here in Dallas.  Olescia Hanson and Nina Smith took us on a private tour of the store.  I was able to walk down every single aisle and take in so many amazing products without chasing my seven year old.  It was quite a lovely day and although I frequent my area Container Store often, I saw products that I had never seen before.

If any of your are not familiar with The Container Store, here is a quick fact sheet about the company.
