Great sale on shelving AND Elfa at the Container Store

30 September 2016 | Comments [0] »

If you’re in the market for shelving or Elfa, now’s the time to buy! At the beginning of every year the Container Store has a sale on Elfa, its fabulous shelving and drawer system. And then in the fall they have a shelving sale. If I’m remembering correctly, the only Elfa that was included in that sale was shelving.

Worth repeating: The joy of an organized yarn stash

26 September 2016 | Comments [0] »

Eight years ago, I organized my yarn into a bank of Elfa drawers. (Incidentally, Elfa is on sale right now for 25 percent off!) Four years ago, I blogged about how wonderful it is to have an organized stash. Today, I am repeating that post because is as true now as it was then. And, of course, it’s also true for fabric, beads or any other kind of craft supplies you might have.

It's that time of year again: the annual Elfa sale!

8 January 2015 | Comments [0] »

Right now is a great time to buy Elfa because they’re having their annual sale. All Elfa components are 30 percent off, as is Elfa installation. For many people, Elfa is easy to put together. But if you’re having a closet system put in, going with their installation service is a nice perk.

I heart The Container Store

19 July 2013 | Comments [0] »

I spent two hours today at The Container Store here in St. Louis working with an Elfa designer named Meg. I was getting a design for a client project (organizing systems for two garages). I walked in there with only a general idea of what I needed. Meg asked me questions that helped bring things into focus. Then she set to work creating the designs (five in all) and we spent a good amount of time tweaking them.

It's Elfa sale time again!

8 February 2013 | Comments [0] »

I love Elfa, the shelving/drawer system from The Container Store. I use it in my own home, in a closet in my office and to store my yarn stash. (I used an Office in a Closet kit for the office closet and a bank of mesh drawers for the yarn and knitting supplies.)

The joy of an organized yarn stash

5 December 2012 | Comments [0] »

I’m a knitter, and like most knitters, I have quite a bit of yarn. I don’t go out and buy yarn for the sake of buying it. Typically, I purchase yarn for specific projects. But sometimes those projects don’t pan out and I unravel them. And lots of times, I have yarn left over after finishing a project. Multi-color projects, in particular, can lend themselves to a lot of leftover yarn.

Past, present and future

I was re-reading Judith Kolberg’s excellent book, Conquering Chronic Disorganization, recently and was struck by a concept. (One of the things I love about this book is that new things jump out at me each time I read it.)

My new home office space

7 July 2008 | Comments [3] »

That stressful trip to IKEA was all about purchasing storage furniture for my new adjunct home office. I had an extra room in my house, adjacent to my home office, and I decided to create a second office out of it.

Organizing my yarn collection and knitting supplies

24 June 2008 | Comments [5] »

Yesterday I posted about my new Elfa drawer system which now stores my yarn and knitting needles. Here are the specs: I purchased three 10-runner drawer frames (41 inches high) and platinum mesh baskets with platinum tops over the whole thing. I have three sets of drawers—two medium and two wide. The way I configured my set, I have 16 drawers to work with, 3 one-runner (shallow), 12 two-runner (medium) and one three-runner (deep).
