Blue Monday - Container Store Blue

Hello! It's Blue Monday! For complete instructions, just click here.

Leave a comment for me; I guarantee that I'll visit and leave one for you. Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links and leaving comments.

Check back to make certain that you have visited all the Blue participants. If it's too much for one day, come back later in the week.

Make someone's day when you wish them a Happy Blue Monday!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I wanted a tray that would hold my medicines--pill bottles and such--inside a kitchen drawer. Johnny and I checked both Walmart and Target and neither had what I wanted. Last March, a Container Store opened within a half hour drive, so we decided to pay them a visit. I am here to report that WOW! what a delightful place to find just exactly what you want!


In honor of the store's color--Blue--I shot these pictures in my Blue guest room. The headboard is Blue. The comforter is Blue, and there are several Blue touches in the room.



I bought three colorless items: hangers with clips, the "medicine" tray, and a small tray in which to keep my makeup.



Of course, they had plenty of Blue items, and we took a couple of shots to show you. Here are some Blue buckets.



Here's some Blue rolling carts.



I found this picture of Blue hangers online. However, we did see a similar display in the store.



Even silver polish is found in Blue bottles!

Have you ever heard of or shopped at The Container Store? If you'd like to shop online, click here.

Please note: This is my opinion; I did not get paid!

I could spend so much money in the Container Store! They sell so many good organizers. I'm glad you found what you were looking for there, Sally. Happy November and Blue Monday!

Hello Blue Monday! I missed you all! :)

Ohhhhh, I am a container nut! Hubbers says I have too many containers. Well, little does he know- you can never have too many containers!

Lina Gustina said...

Nice to find the store that offers useful products we're looking for.
If they open a branch here, I'll make a visit :)

Oh that's practical, such a Container Store! In Germany there is not that and you often have to look far to find things matching ... But it is always attractive to look for blue things everywhere, beautiful shots!
Happy Blue Monday :-)

jeannettestgermain said...

the container store is right around my corner, and I LOVE it! So, every time I go with a very specific goal in mind, so I won't spend too much on what I won't use:)

Simone Weichenhain said...

That`s a lot of blue.

FABBY'S LIVING said...

Ok, that's it, dear Sally, just leave it without a thumbnail! I did everything perfect and picked my bluest of photos from my post and still no pic on the party, lol! I have a very BLUE post and I'm so happy to be joining your great theme party. Thank you so much for hosting and have a blessed week ahead.

Oh, I forgot to say I love that store! When I'm in Florida I always walk in there to see what's new and buy some not so big things. Love all the blue in it.

I've never heard of the Container Store, but I will surely check your link now!
Happy Blue Monday, Sally!

Happy blue to you!

Terri Buster said...

I've never heard of this store, but it would sure be nice to have an alternative to Wally World for storage items.

Jeanne said...

Good morning Sally, I would love to go to one of those container stores. I will have to visit them on line though. On the other hand, we are in Florida for a few days. Maybe there is one in Jacksonville. I am looking for some containers to organize under the cabinets in the bathrooms. Blue is always a good color isn't it?

Happy Blue Monday
Love, Jeanne

Gerald (SK14) said...

what a lot of blue things they do have PS sorry I didn't have time to comment just after posting my links but I had to get off out shopping.

Nick V. said...

We have similar shops here in Melbourne too, Sally. Like all your blues.
Thanks for hosting.

Mascha said...

Blue Monday I will no longer participate in the future.
I'm embarrassed to be always reminded of comments. And I had long since written hours ago :-(

Hugs,

Maria Kristina Maano said...

Happy Blue Monday Sally. This store has a very appropriate tag line. I like the shade of blue for their paper bag!

Jenny said...

We don't have a Container Store, which may be a good thing since I can lose myself on the hanger aisle at Walmart!

I need to visit this store, happy Monday :)

Hazel Ceej said...

I've never been to a container store. Stores like this help people organize things. The hangers look splendid in the racks. I like the buckets.

Hi Sally, I encountered a technical problem after linking up so it took me hours to leave a comment. I do intend to comment as usual. Thanks for hosting and have a happy week ahead.

Ann said...

I think the Container Store has a real theme going on here. Blue seems to be a calming color for a bedroom--like what you have done in your guest room.

Happy Blue Monday Sally. I changed a blue lamp to antique white but I didn't change the lavender or the blue glass jar holding the bouquet. Thanks for hosting. Have a great week. I haven't seen a Container store before so I learned something new today.

Lots of blue containers, who could ask for anything more? Thanks for hosting.

I have never been, but it looks like fun!

I almost joined you for Blue Monday this week but was stricken by a sick headache. Thankfully it is better now. I posted, but I couldn't make the rounds so did not hook up. I will hopefully be able to pla y again soon.

Love you,

Sheila
