Oprah is at it again. After a week of shows about de-cluttering, she asked the Container Store to offer a 20 percent storewide discount through March 1. Just go to the website to print the coupon. Storables, just down the street from the Container Store on France Avenue in Edina, will also accept the coupon. Local organizer Louise Kurzeka of Everything’s Together, suggests signing up for e-mail alerts at Storables.com. She recently received an e-mail that included a Storables coupon for 25 percent off storewide. Unfortunately, the coupon is not available at the Storables site but copies will be accepted if a friend already printed one.
Many of the items at the organizing stores can be found for less at Target, so I asked Kurzeka for items that rarely go on sale and can be difficult to find except at organizing stores. She suggested travel accessories including compression bags and TSA locks, Filofax portfolios and refill pages, high quality trashcans (read expensive) and recycling stacking systems as well as small stacking totes.
