Neat Containers Giveaway

Whew! De-cluttering and organizing my sewing room has been a bigger job than I anticipated (why do I let it get this cluttered?!), and I've made little progress. Some, but not much. :/ I'll spare you the details of how bad it is right now (I think the process of cleaning sometimes makes the room look worse than it really is), but I do want to tell you about Neat Containers.

Here is a picture of some of my piles of this-and-that (oh, I confess, I do have more piles!)



And this picture shows the start of my transfer of the piles to the Neat Containers.



So yes, I'm slowly making progress. (Applause is appropriate here.) :)

I am using my set of containers in my sewing room, and I'm still working on filling them up. (And believe me, I have plenty of craft and sewing stuff to fill them all---really, I should de-stash!) The biggest size (shown in the middle) would be great for 12"x12" scrapbooking paper. I could see these containers nicely used totally for scrapbooking and rubber stamping supplies. (Does anybody still rubber stamp?!) I also think they would work wonderfully in a closet filled with belts, purses, scarves, socks, shoes, and so on.




Let me tell you what I love about the Neat Containers. They are clear--easy to see what's inside. They are stackable, and what's really cool is that you can pull them out kind of like a drawer and the rest of the stack does not fall over or collapse. The containers are easy to assemble, and the configuration can be changed easily at any time. Mostly, I love that my assorted supplies will all be in one place, easy to see at a glance, and readily available for use.

Now onto what you've been waiting for:
The Giveaway!!!

Neat Containers has graciously offered one of Sew Chic's readers (that's you!!!) a combo set of their wonderful storage containers.

I will randomly draw a winner on November 27th.
The winner will receive the small combo set pictured below.

  2. How neat are they? I love that a pod can be slid out without having to lift up the pods stacked on top of it! Neat, neat, neat.

    I like the 30 pc. shoe and boot kit. Awesome~

  5. These are fascinating! I would love to have a smaller set of these, I live in a dorm and my miscellaneous craft/music/desk supplies are just jumbled all over my bookshelf and in my desk drawers!

  6. I like the neopod kit. I have a lot of small artsy crafty things that I have in jars and small boxy holders, having a storage system like this would make my life easyer.

  7. I think I like the large 20 pc combo kit. I would love to use them in organizing my sewing and scrapbook area.

  8. the large combo kit would be wonderful to corrall all the things that are floating around my sewing room without homes now. Especially the jars of ribbons...........

  9. I would like the combo kit...

  10. These are so neat! I'd probably start with that 15 piece starter kit.... but those bigger ones would work great for extra bits of fabric that are just hanging around.

    I also really like the shoe kit, but I don't have the space for it. :(

  11. The small combo kit, I don't have that much room to use them, of course if I decluttered, it might work great!!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I would love any of them. But I think I would really love the shoe kit combo pack. I keep all of my sewing notions in clear plastic shoe boxes, so I can see what is in there. But they are all cracked and broken and I need to replace them. These look so cool! Thank you for the chance.

  15. feThese are so neat. I need the mega kit to get me organized. I don't even want to start anything because my sewing room is a mess. Love these.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Good luck with the re-organizing! I feel your agony. I have huge stashes of various craft supplies (fabric, yarn, beads). I Love creating but the organizing seems so huge! I am cheering for you! :)

  17. I just spent all last week totally re-doing my sewing room (see my blog) and so I would LOVE to have some of these containers to help keep me organized. By the way, keep up the good work. Your room will be whipped into shape before you know it. And take it from me, it feels soooo good once it's back in order!

  18. What a great way to organize crafts supplies! I am organizing my sewing/crafts room and this is a great help! I especially liked the nice big combo sets as they fit together and are a tidy way to keep things visible and handy.
    Thanks for sharing,
    Daisy

  19. The mega pods would be perfect for the garage!

    ReplyDelete
  20. That pod organization kit sounds like something that would fit almost any organizing need. Mine would be for crafts, especially papercrafts, card making and scrapbooking. The multi size kit would work good for me.

    ReplyDelete
  21. They all look pretty neat. The small combo kit looks perfect for organizing a lot of my small sewing and craft supplies.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I think I'd go for the closet organizing kit- very neat idea!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I also like the mega kit. I am so disorganized. I want to be able to manage my stash, sewing supplies. etc.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I think I'd go with the mega kit first. I have a sewing/craft room that could use a lot of work. Sewing, quilting, crochet, rubber stamps (yep, I do), scrapbooking, cards. Many things to organize and these things look fantastic. I can see lots of uses for these. Thanks for the chance to win!

  25. Hi, I would love to win some neat containers. I would use them to store my UFO's in quilting, my fat quarters and scraps by color to get me organized. Boy do I need the help. Thanks, quiltingnannan@yahoo.com

    ReplyDelete
  26. I would like the large combo kit + a couple of dozen of the mini accessory ones. Can use all the organizing help I can get.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Omigosh! My grandmother has these and I always thought they were neat-o! I love the fact you can grab one from the middle and the whole set up wont crash down upon me. I really like the 20 pc. Starter kit because it has different sizes. Perfect for my (also) disorganized sewing/craft room!

  28. I can't seem to find a way I like to organize my shoes. I liked the shoe containers.

    ReplyDelete
  29. My shoes need some serious help! I liked the shoe containers.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I like the small kit to organize my quilting supplies. I have my supplies scattered around in many different places. It would be nice to have it all in one place and neatly organized too!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Please email me! I have a question about your blog! :)

  32. Thanks so much for sharing the link to this site. I'm over there getting lost in the thought of actually being able to de-clutter my sewing room. What a wonderful idea!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh, I could SO put some of these containers to use! They'd be great for any type of crafting supplies-- scrapbooking, quilting, embroidery, etc, etc, etc...! I would probably choose one of the shoe kits and fill them up immediatley! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  34. This could really help me organize the mess and be able to find things quickly. I would love to have a set.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I would use the Small Combo Kit for organizing my sewing stuff--and in the process of organizing I would declutter and keep only the really useful stuff!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Extreme Organization + Neat Containers 100pc MEGA-Kit = HEAVEN! I would be able to store my projects waiting for that special piece or idea where they can still be seen and easily reached! No more finding unfinished projects and thinking...Oh, I forgot I had that...

  37. The NeoPOD would be an excellent addition to our craft room. I would put a set in one of our cabinets, probably the one with all my sewing supplies, which is STUFFED with supplies.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I would love to give the Mini 50 kit to my daughter so she could organize her jewlrey which is currently in a jumble in the bathroom drawer. It is a beautiful tangle and could be stunningly organized.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I would like the large combo kit. With those, I would finally get my knitting and sewing tools organized!!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Any of the sets would be a great addition to my sewing/craft area, but the 100 pc. mega kt would probably be necessary to contain everything!

    ReplyDelete

  43. Mega kit and using it to organize my stash- might improve my marriage!

    ReplyDelete
  44. This is such a fantastic idea! It's too difficult to choose a favorite. I could definitely find ways of filling any of the kits.

    ReplyDelete
  45. i'm fascinated. it looks like a fairly simple but effective design. i'm curious how much weight these things could hold. I could probably use the mega kit since I'm a hoarder and have tons of stuff that needs a home.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I think I would use the sweater pod (#4) the most, to hold all the quilt blocks from "block of the month" projects.

    ReplyDelete
  47. The starter kit looks like a perfect place to start...what a great offer. Hope you post pics of your organized space. It might provide the motivation I need to finish mine!

  48. I would love the shoe kit for my closet!

  49. That is the most wonderful creation I have seen yet. I have so many hat boxes to organize but dread pulling out the one in the middle. I love how you can do this without worrying if you'll knock down all the others:) Great idea.
