  The Container Store: Vienna, VA
by b1bob

This tip is dedicated to American ingenuity. In what other country would you find a store that sells nothing but containers? You would be surprised by how much clutter Americans accumulate. In the late 1970s, a group of entrepreneurs opened up this place to solve that very problem. The store layout is neatly divided into various lifestyle sections including, but not limited to, closets, kitchen, and office. I first heard of this place in Northern Virginia while going out with a friend who was running errands.

What to buy: All manner of storage and organisation products can be found here.

Directions: In many major metropolitan areas across the USA
Theme: Music
