Looking for some springtime organizing inspiration?
You might want to head to Southcenter Mall this weekend for the grand opening of The Container Store (Tukwila, 2437 Southcenter; 1.888.CONTAIN). Not only will you be able to roam the brand-new 25,000-square-foot space (10 a.m.–9 p.m., Sat., 11 a.m.–7 p.m. Sun.) containing some 10,000 oh-so-smart organizing items (such as 170 styles of hooks!) to help snap your space into shape, but there will be hourly give-aways all weekend long, including a $1,000 Elfa makeover installation. The mega store itself is helpfully organized into 16 "lifestyle" departments, covering everything from closets and laundry to small-space needs.
Plus, it's all taking place during The Container Store's "spring organization sale," which continues through May 4th.
