Container Store Orlando Grand Opening This Weekend 4/27 and 4/28

I am so excited about the Grand Opening of The Container Store located at Conroy Rd & Millenia Blvd.   This 24,000 square feet store is packed full of the most amazing products to get your life more organized.  Whether you need stuff for your garage, kitchen, mudroom, closet or office, they have it all!  Just walking around I felt so inspired to get more organized around my house.
