Religious Potpourri


There are a few stores that I just love to browse in. If I had no money and no intention of buying anything, I'd still love to just walk through them and see what was on the shelves. One of them is Big Lots. Such an odd assortment of cast-off goods. And at such great prices! I also love a hardware megastore like Lowe's. I could browse the paint sample area, the kitchen cabinet section, or the front door aisle for hours. But my all-time favorite has got to be The Container Store. They have one here in Austin, so I couldn't skip a chance to go. All those boxes, bags, containers, vials, and gadgets for keeping your things clean and neat. It's storage heaven. All I need is a couple hundred dollars to blow and my house could become an organizational Nirvana. Right now it's in organizational purgatory. Not hell. Not the telestial kingdom of organization, even. Just somewhere in the middle...waiting for someone to pray it out.

I agree 100% with you. I could spend hours in this store and am lucky enough to have one 15 minutes away. I especially love their wrapping paper.

I am also a fan of the Container Store, but I've never been able to go to one. Never lived near one. But I buy stuff from them online.
