by Brad

While those of us at The Container Store love organizing, that doesn't mean we don't love finding ways to make projects even easier. That's why we've put together an expansive array of organization starter kits. Designed to simplify the process, these kits feature some of our favorite products for each project type - all you do is adjust how many of each item you want. And you'll find Starter Kits for practically every area of your home, from your dresser and kitchen drawers to your closet, pantry, entryway, garage and office. Check out this short list of some of our favorites...

The Home Edit 4-Drawer Makeup Solution

For organizing cluttered cosmetics, messy makeup, and un-tidy toiletries, our new 4-Drawer Makeup Solution from The Home Edit is a quick and easy solution. The kit includes one Small Deep Drawer, one Large Deep Drawer, one Small Shallow Drawer, and one Large Shallow Drawer, but like all of our starter kits, you can easily customize the quantities of each item in your cart when ordering online.

Safety To-Go Starter Kit

Keeping your masks and other safety essentials handy when on the go is a must.

With plenty of room left over for items such as hand sanitizer or wipes, it's the ultimate grab-and-go safety solution.
