The Container Store is teaming up with Goodwill Southern California to help customers Kiss Clutter Goodbye. Through May 15, The Container Store is encouraging customers to de-clutter, donate and do life organized.
The spring campaign includes item-donation weekend events April 23-24 and April 30-May 1 at The Container Store’s locations, as well as a call for monetary donations to Goodwill Southern California through May 15.
“In partnership with Goodwill, we’re thrilled to help our customers kiss clutter goodbye and say hello to organization. From the tiny home craze and focus on downsizing to the popularity of books on de-cluttering, including Marie Kondo’s KonMari Method, people everywhere are craving the benefits of a clutter-free life,” says Melissa Reiff, president and COO of The Container Store. “Our spring sale campaign focuses on encouraging our customers to let go of the things that are weighing them down, keep only the things that bring them joy or add meaning to their lives and provide them with expert solutions to organize those things that are important to them.”
The Kiss Clutter Goodbye weekends will occur in the Los Angeles area for Goodwill Southern California at the following Container Stores:
- Century City – 10250 Santa Monica Blvd.
- El Segundo – 710 S. Sepulveda Blvd.
- Farmers Market – 110 S. Fairfax Avenue
- Pasadena – One East Union Street
Goodwill Southern California representatives will be on hand to accept donations of new or used clothing, textiles, small appliances and household goods. Customers who donate goods during these weekends will receive a free bag from The Container Store to remind them to de-clutter and donate to Goodwill Southern California throughout the year. Customers who make a monetary donation of $5 or more throughout the campaign will receive the free bag.
“Springtime organization is an exciting opportunity to throw open the windows and sort out the clutter, but it can also be an overwhelming chore that intimidates people out of even getting started,” says professional organizer Lorie Marrero, creator of ClutterDiet.com and a spokesperson for Goodwill. Marrero’s closet organizer products that are sold at The Container Store are assembled by Goodwill program participants.
“We love what you don’t,” says Ray Tellez, vice president of retail stores for Goodwill Southern California. “We are grateful to generous donors who help Goodwill Southern California transform lives through the power of work for thousands of individuals with disabilities and disadvantages in our community”.
The Kiss Clutter Goodbye weekends will also include prize drawings, demonstrations from noon to 4 p.m. of some of the retailer’s favorite de-cluttering solutions and techniques, and appearances by expert guests and Contained Home professional organizers.
