This Unexpected Item Has The Worst Reviews At The Container Store

The Container Store is a go-to for many when they need a new set of Tupperware, storage bins, or shelving units. The chain has been around since 1978, when it first opened in Dallas, TX, according to the store's website. In recent years, space organization has been all the rage, with famous organizing consultant Marie Kondo rising to fame. Even more recently, organizing small spaces has become a popular trend on TikTok, where creators make videos of their container-filled fridge, pantry, or bathroom fully stocked.

It can take a couple of hours to organize your space, but once it's finished, it'll make your life a whole lot easier. If you're looking to get into the organization game, The Container Store has a huge range of options. Even though it's overwhelming to decide which containers to purchase in hopes they're sturdy and long-lasting, reading the reviews can help you make those decisions. Here's one item to stay away from at The Container Store due to its low reviews.

Flimsy and fragile storage bag

The Clear PEVA Storage Chests are said to be "super-strong made from 12-gauge material, self-healing zipper, and heavy cotton rope handles that makes them durable," per the product description. The customers who bought this item claim otherwise, rating it 2.4 stars out of 5. The reviewers state that the clear storage bags aren't as durable as the description says. A one-star reviewer stated the clear bags weren't cheap to buy but were "cheaply made" with "thin and flimsy plastic and fragile zippers," per the reviews. The storage bag costs $10 to $12.99 per package, so customers can spend quite a bit if they buy multiple.

Another one-star reviewer stated that they bought six packages only for the handles to break off of one upon moving them to the floor from their bed. They had filled it with soft clothing that weighed less than 10 pounds, so the handles weren't as heavy-duty as the description made them out to be. Other reviewers claimed the zippers broke easily. One customer that gave it a positive review stated the bags could hold their linens and blankets without any trouble, except they had to be careful with the flimsy zipper.
