Last night we had an appointment with our tax guy at 9 pm! He's a busy man... to pass the time, we visited The Container Store and Marshall's for the first time.
Allow me to start with The Container Store... I really wasn't impressed. As much as I love containers, boxes, files and closet organizers, I didn't find The Container Store to be anything special. Did I mention the prices? I knew IKEA was down the street and I could find the exact products for much cheaper.
I did manage to find 1 item we needed:
sponge holder w/ suction cups for the kitchen sink $6.15
Now on to Marshall's... I know I've expressed my love of HomeGoods in the past and I must say it is still a front runner, BUT, Marshall's is a close 2nd! They have great prices, great items for the house and great everything else!
Here's my little purchase from Marshall's:
soap & hand sanitizer for the kitchen sink $5.75
...I also may have purchased a cute purse :)
