You guys, I have a great news and can no longer contain myself; a Container Store is opening in Milwaukee this weekend!!! And yes, that pun was most certainly intended. :)  We can all now be incredibly organized, and I am pumped about it. I, along with a few other bloggers, got the chance to tour the store ahead of time on Thursday in order to offer our readers a bit of a sneak peek before doors open on Saturday. On a total side note, Lauren from La Petite Fashionista was also there so we finally got to meet each other in person, and it was just all in all a really good time.

Anyway, I have never been in a Container Store because this is the very FIRST location in WI. Well, I can confidently say that this WI store is simply gorgeous; well lit, incredibly well organized, has literally everything you could need to get your life together... Just such a happy place to be! Plus the prices didn't make me want to weep - mostly everything is really affordable. So I'm obviously a huge fan. 

I've got my eye on some new dog treat storage containers for Reggie because these are just so adorable.  Best of all - only $10 for the larger ones with the paw prints!

LOVED this mudroom set up. the bench features pull-out shelves for shoes so as to keep mess and clutter contained. Seriously, is there anyone who couldn't benefit from this? Such a smart idea - I found this to be a general theme for all Container Store products.

It's also worth mentioning that anyone looking for closet essentials needs to stop here! These color-coded hangers make my heart sing.

And I'm always on the hunt for more jewelry and beauty product storage as I feel I'm constantly outgrowing whatever storage method I currently have in place. The Container Store has some really adorable acrylic options that I feel are just so effortlessly chic.

I think that I just want everything in this entire aisle.  I mean, you guys know how I feel about gray!

So many fun color options so that you can easily incorporate not only smart storage, but also a fun pop of color.

There are a few storage units that I knew right away would be great for crafting!

I loved taking a tour of the store, and I am equally excited to pick up a few things on my wishlist during the grand opening on Saturday the 12th. There will be prize giveaways EVERY hour on the hour, and 10% of grand opening sales will go to the Junior League of Milwaukee, a nonprofit organization that focuses its community efforts on education, health, and nutrition of women and children in the greater Milwaukee area... so it will be WORTH checking out! If you can't make it on Saturday, the sale and giveaways will be continuing on Sunday as well.

For those of you who want to make the visit, you can find the new Container Store at 10400 W. North Ave., Wauwatosa, WI, 53226. Hope to see all of you guys there!
