It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The Container Store has their annual sale with its exclusive Elfa line. If you’ve never heard of the product, you are in for a real treat. It’s a system that can transform any space, organizing will never be the same again after you experience it.
The use of this product has taken many from frustrated to functional including a handful of projects that I’ve organized. Here are a variety of ways this system can make your life a whole lot easier.

Whether it’s the pantry, bathroom, or playroom, this organizer will get things in order especially if there are space constraints. The various components available allow you to organize a range of items from small to large.
Free-standing Drawer Unit
There are so many places this unit can be used, the closet, play area, bathroom, garage, and in this case, gift wrap organizer. This particular unit is the medium size 7-runner. The options of configurations give you the flexibility to maximize any space. It comes in three colors: white, platinum (shown below), and graphite.
The freestanding units come in three runners: four, seven, and ten. From there, you select the size of your bin that also comes in three different sizes: one runner, two runner, and three runner. The bins selected need to add up to the number of runner you have, here are some examples:
|4 Runner||7 Runner||10 Runner|
|2 – one runner||3- two runner||2- three runner|
|1- two runner||1- one runner||2- two runner|
|1- one runner||2- two runner||1- three runner|
|1- three runner||3- one runner||2- two runner|
|3- one runner|
|2- two runner||1- three runner|
|2- two runner||5- two runner|
This design tool allows you to play around with the variety of sizes before making a purchase, it is only available to use on a desktop at this time.
The last way to use Elfa from The container Store is by having a custom design made. You can schedule an appointment at the store with one of the designers, search by zip code, then the closest store will pop-up where you can then select “Schedule A Custom Closets Appointment”. While you can do a walk-in appointment, I highly recommend scheduling one because they are busy almost all the time.
You can also call them directly 1-888-CONTAIN (266-8246) and speak with an expert designer who can do it over the phone and email it to you.
The last thing you can do is create the design yourself. The interactive system gives you the ability to customize the design to your liking.
This pantry here was designed over-the-phone with a designer because of the unique layout (the system wouldn’t let me design it).
Once the system is installed, then you can add the bins you need. This post covers the favorites at The Container Store based on your budget.
Go get your tape measure and start planning out your space.
