The Container Store-Designed for New York Living

After living in a New York apartment for a few months I have come to realise the importance of maximising every inch of space.   I have to make sure that I keep everything neat and tidy and use all of the storage space carefully in order to fit in our stuff.

I wish I had discovered 'The Container Store' when I first arrived here as it is an entire shop designated to making the most of your living space.  The store offers a massive range of storage options for all budgets. 

I am a bit of a shoe monster, as I'm sure you have noticed, and I was running out of floor space in my wardrobe.  I found these great clear shoe boxes that pile up neatly on top of each other and they were a bargain at $1.75 each.  Now my shoes are neatly stored at the bottom of my wardrobe and I have much more room.  I also bought some storage bags that fit nicely under the bed as well as a desk tidy and some smaller storage boxes.

They have options for almost any space or item you can think of and it's a great place to visit for storage ideas.  They have 2 locations in Manhattan, one on 58th and Lexington and one on 6th Avenue between 18th and 19th.  However, if there isn't a store near you or you don't feel like lugging big boxes home you can shop online and have your products delivered.  They also offer an instore delivery service, so you can pick out your items and have them delivered to your door.
