Are you ready to do your own organizing project at home or in the office? If you’re preparing to begin an organizational overhaul, then you will probably need some products like bins, hangers, hooks, folders, and other organizing tools. Luckily all of these items can be found in one location, The Container Store, which has various sales that run throughout the year.

(If you’re looking for the best organizing products that I’ve already thoroughly researched and tested for my clients, and use in my home, then you can see them all on the Recommended Products page.)

Unlike other retailers, The Container Store’s sales typically run for 6 – 8 weeks. However, the specific annual sale schedule changes each year. Sometimes sales may even overlap. Some sales include elfa® products and usually installation of elfa® is also applicable for the sale (but this is subject to change).

Here is a general guide for the how to take advantage of the best deals and promotions for The Container Store shelving and storage offers each year:

Annual elfa® Shelving Sale

Time of Year: December 24th through mid-February (typically 8 weeks)
