free shipping from The Container Store


The Container Store is an organizer’s mecca. I try to make a few pilgrimages a year to the San Francisco store, which is stocked with containers, storage systems, kitchen gadgets and cool stuff like pencils made from tightly rolled sheets of old newsprint. (I’m not sure what that has to do with organizing, but I was so smitten by them last year that I bought a set for my son.)

If you can’t or won’t brave the holiday crowds at the store, or if you don’t live near a Container Store, you’re in luck. Between now and Dec. 15, you can score free standard shipping from The Container Store by using the offer code THANKYOU at checkout. (I just checked the website, and it’s showing free shipping only for orders of at least $100, but this THANKYOU offer has no minimum.)

A unique and thoughtful holiday gift you can order now is an acid-free storage box for sentimental items and family heirlooms like wedding veils, christening gowns and baby outfits. A box doesn’t seem like a very meaningful gift, but it really is. Give it to a parent, grandparent or older family member and ask them to fill it with love letters, photos and memorabilia they cherish. They’ll know the contents are protected from yellowing and damage, and you’ll know that a hand-picked collection of special items has been safely stowed in one place.

The Container Store ships these boxes unassembled — they’re easy to put together — and they come with six sheets of acid-free tissue paper for cushioning and wrapping. Free shipping is a great deal on these larger items, and you can cross another gift off your list.

  1. I’m always thrilled to find free shipping, but the Container Store is such a fun place to browse, it’s fun to look around for real, too.
