The Container Store has a cult-like following. People love this place and the possibilities of an organized life that the aisles and aisles of containers allude to. So today I paid a visit to the new one in Raleigh. I can see the appeal, even though it's not really my cup of tea (oh, don't get your noses out of joint Container fans, it just means more for you). My purchase was a $3.00 sponge holder. It has little suction cups and a ventilated holder, so the sponge can be placed inside the sink, somewhat out of sight and definitely out of the way. I like it very much. It's a good idea.
But there was a very BAD idea there and it made me laugh at it's ridiculousness (is that a word?), so I'm going to share it with you.
It's a grouping of transluscent plastic cubes, made into a storage unit of some sort, costing $279.00! Oh my gosh! Really, it just made me laugh out loud.
