One Year Blog Anniversary – Day 5!

Nov 9

hard to believe it’s friday and my week-long blogiversary celebration is coming to a close. 🙁 boo!
i’ve had so much fun hosting these giveaways all week. i’ve loved reading your comments and seeing the excitement from those signing up for a chance to win. thank you again for coming over to the blog this week to celebrate with me!
the final giveaway item this week is something all of you will love. it’s my absolute favorite *happy place* to stroll around in, browse, shop and browse some more. i’ve been trying to be good by not going into our local store as often – i could do some serious damage to our credit card in this place! instead, i’ve recently taken up stalking browsing the website for holiday inspiration. 🙂 any one of you will be able to use this giveaway item to help organize a space in your home, your car, your purse, your office, and more. they can even help you be organized outside of your home – travel items!!
have you guessed what store i’m talking about yet?
here’s a hint…
and a colorful one…
yup, the container store!
would it be wrong for me to plan a US tour of all the container stores? kinda like when my husband talks about taking our grown boys around the US to see all of the baseball parks. wouldn’t that be a great idea?!
call me crazy, but that would definitely be my idea of fun! 🙂
to end this week-long anniversary week, i’m personally hosting this giveaway by giving one of you a $30 container store gift card!
and you can spend it on whatever your little organizing heart desires. trust me, there are endless ideas coming to mind. here are some items i’ve spied that are on my wish list this season…
we recycle twice a week – once when waste management comes for regular trash pick-up and once on saturday mornings at our local recycling center (which is almost walking distance from our house). we have toooons of recyclables and they are starting to take over the garage. so, lately i’ve been eyeing these stackable bins – with a carrying handle…eeek!….
i’m still working on getting our paper organized in the office. i’ve figured out exactly what i need to keep and how to manage papers coming into the house, but now i need somewhere to keep everything. here is a pretty container that caught my eye…
have also been giving some thought to upgrading my scrapbook table in the office closet. i love this idea…a long tabletop that is held up by tall stacked drawers…
i could keep sharing but this is probably getting old for you 🙂
on to the giveaway!
to enter, just follow the simple instructions inside the rafflecopter gadget. entries are open today through tuesday, november 12. winner will be notified via e-mail and the e-gift card will arrive in your e-mail inbox – from me!

    I'm in desperate need of shoe organization. This would force me to bite the bullet!

  2. Oh, man! I could go crazy in that store! I would probably spend the card on kitchen storage. It's the hub of our house and somehow, no matter what I do, loses its organization so quickly!

    • I could go crazy in the store too!!! 🙂 yes, everyone could stand to get more organized in the kitchen. Because it tends to get the most traffic, there are always ways to improve, right? 🙂

      Thank you!!!!

  3. M Mommy to 4 says:

    Oh how I wish I lived close to one, but I may enlist my sister-in-law to help out with this one…she lives right by one so I could save on shipping!

  4. Amy Johnson says:

    I love the Container Store! I always want to go crazy when I'm in there, and a gift card would definitely help! : )

    The Container Store is HEAVEN!! I would LOVE to win the gift card to one of my favorite stores!

  23. Diana says:

    I've never been to the Container Store before, but from these pictures, I have a feeling it would be EASY to spend $30!

  24. Kelly says:

    I got chills from your Container Store pictures! I love that place and need to get organized again now that we have another baby on the way!

  25. much love for that store!

  26. Heather says:

    Love the Container Store! I would probably look for a few things to organize our pantry or my closet better.

  27. Can you believe I have never been inside a Container Store? I always lust when people haul from there and show what they're using but I'd have to think about it! I don't know what I would spend it on lol This is really generous and happy blogiversary 😀

  28. KM says:

    I once drove 6 hours, 8 months pregnant with a 2 year old to a Container Store in order to "nest"…needless to say, I'm an addict there. They finally opened here (10 years after that trip) and I couldn't be happier 🙂

  29. LoriU says:

    I would get new pantry containers from the Container Store!

  30. Sara Duenas says:

    We need some drawer dividers for Baby T's clothes. He's quite the clothes horse!

  31. Becky says:

    Love, love, love the Container Store!! I'm smitten with their beautiful Christmas wrapping paper right now.

  32. Stacey B says:

    I'm in need of some serious storage for my son's Legos. I know he will be getting more for Christmas and I would like to get something figured out before I have Legos everywhere!!

  33. ilona says:

    I need some new organization for my kitchen!

  34. dawnp says:

    I am looking for organization for CDs and DVDs. Also, for the hall closet.

  39. Heather C says:

    I've been eyeing products to manage the influx of school paperwork…I'm drowning so far this school year and desparately need help digging out!

  40. I'm an addict… I have 6 running wish lists organized by room on with a product total of $336.69, and I used extreme restraint in adding items to those lists! SO, using the $30 gift card would be NO PROBLEM! I think, although I will probably change my mind several more times while I dream of winning, that I would use the gift card to upgrade my basic fridge storage: Fridge Binz Wine Holder, Egg, Hot Dog, Bacon, and Sliced Cheese Stay Fresh Containers, and the 14-cube Ice Tray with Lid & Bin. Pick me so I can start turning those wish lists into reality and avoid crashing their site with my long, long lists!!!

  41. Lisa says:

    Wow!!! That is extremely nice of you!!! I love the container store and haven't been to one in a while. My son's closet needs major organization and I know this would be perfect!!!!!

  42. Elena says:

    I would love some containers for my pantry and kitchen!

  43. Carol says:

    I can always use more containers for my craft-sewing room!

  44. Sassymoose says:

    I would use it to help me organize my kids toys. Thank you!!

  45. I'd wait to see what my future grad school apartment/house will look like and need once I move in this summer. But I'd LOVE storage for things in the kitchen. I hate boxes and love the look of uniform containers in a pantry or cupboard.

  46. Amy Hertzler says:

    I need all kinds of containers to organize EVERYTHING!

  47. Where would I even start??? My kitchen pantry could use a serious overhaul so I'd probably use the gift card to get some great bins.

  48. Tiffany says:

    I just recently found your blog and I love it…can't wait to dig in and explore! Container Store makes my heart race – so many wonderful possibilities!

  49. Love the Container store. Love organizing. Love your blog.

  53. DD says:

    I am so with you on Container Store! It's my favorite store. I can spend hours just walking the aisles. So many cute things. So many great ideas. So many ideas. If I won the gift, (thank your for sponsoring it, BTW!) I would buy gifts for Christmas and probably some of their great gift wrap.

  54. justasiam says:

    We dont have a container store in Canada but there are so many things in there that I would love to have especially the acrylic drawer organizers.

  55. Leash says:

    The container store is seriously my happy place! I love going in there and seeing all the ways I could organize my home. I currently work/live on a university campus so organization is a huge part of my life.

  56. Drawer organizers! Or baskets/bins/cubes. I can never ave too many of those

  57. renee says:
