For those of you who have been to The Container Store before, you probably agree with me when I say it is jam packed full of things you think you don’t really need…that is until you actually get it. And then you aren’t really sure how you ever lived without it.
For those of you who have never been, you are probably wondering what one item is universally life changing. I could name a few, however, the Under Sink Organizer should probably be in your shopping cart next time you visit TCS in person, or virtually online.
The cabinet under most kitchen sinks is home to a variety of cleaning products necessary to maintain a household, as well as some miscellaneous other things, and ours was no different. I don’t know many people who have a rhyme or a reason to their under sink organization, and going through many houses on a monthly basis, I haven’t seen many either.
The cabinet under our sink never really made me feel anxious due to the lack of organization and I never felt compelled to do anything about it until one fateful day, D asked if I had bought vinegar at the store and he couldn’t see it sitting right in front of his face.
Exhibit A: Our under sink before the organizer came into our life.
The worst part about this is debatably the horrible photo quality despite the definite room for improvement on the organizational front but I can for a fact state that I have seen worse. It wasn’t until after experiencing the inability to see something right in front of my face, I had a conversation with my TCS guru, my mother, and she suggested the under sink organizer.
Exhibit B: Our under sink after the organizer
In addition to the two levels to disburse the items, the organizer also features two drawers that allow for easier access and less reaching required to obtain all the things you may need.
After installing the organizer, I have to admit, it didn’t necessarily maximize my storage. The garbage disposal and pipes could be partly to blame because they take up so much space. Despite the lack of additional storage, I would still suggest this is worth the investment if you are like me and believe time is money and hate digging for things longer than necessary. Not to mention if you are considering selling your home, the less cluttered your home and cabinets are, the better.
What do you think? Would you get this? Or do you have any better solutions to under sink organization? Tell me in the comments below!
As always, thanks for reading!
