NOTE: You have until midnight Tuesday, May 29, to enter this giveaway. I'll post the winner Wednesday morning.
If you're in organizing mode, listen up.
I'm giving away a $25 gift card to The Container Store in Raleigh.
To the uninitiated, The Container Store is an organizer junkie's paradise -- an entire store filled with boxes, bins, bags, racks, pegs, pouches, vessels, crates, files -- you name it.
If you're doing a major blitz on clutter or just want to straighten out your kitchen junk drawer, it's a great place to stop in -- if not to purchase, to glean ideas and tips.
To enter the giveaway, leave me a tip about organization in the comments section below. Or confess your organizational weaknesses.
I'd love to hear how you think organization -- or your lack thereof -- affects your bottom line.
Located at 4601 Creedmoor Road across from Crabtree Valley Mall, Raleigh's Container Store is one of two stores in North Carolina. The other store is in Charlotte.
For information on Container Store sales and promotions, check out the website HERE.
Right now, the store is offering a promotion that gives shoppers a $15 credit in June when you spend $100 or more in May.
Also worth noting: The store is offering weekend classes on packing suitcases for air travel, focusing on ways to travel light to avoid exceeding airline weight limits.
That's a big deal because if you go over, you face hefty fees. Go over the 50-pound limit and you could pay as much as $60 to $100 to check your bag. Go over the 70-pound limit and the fees skyrocket to as much as $200 per bag. Each way.
The 20-minute classes are at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday through June 24.
The gift card giveaway ends at midnight Tuesday, May 29. I'll pick one winner at random, using random.org. I'll post the winner Wednesday morning.
Be sure your N&O profile is up to date with a current email so I can contact you if you win.
