The Container Store’s Annual elfa® Shelving Sale Dates

Are you ready to do your own organizing project at home or in the office? If you’re preparing to begin an organizational overhaul, then you will probably need some products like bins, hangers, hooks, folders, and other organizing tools. Luckily all of these items can be found in one location, The Container Store, which has various sales that run throughout the year.

(If you’re looking for the best organizing products that I’ve already thoroughly researched and tested, and use in my home, then you can see them all on the Products I Use page.)

Unlike other retailers, The Container Store’s sales typically run for 6 – 8 weeks. However, the specific annual sale schedule changes each year. Sometimes sales may even overlap. Some sales include elfa® products and usually installation of elfa® is also applicable for the sale (but this is subject to change).
