SoCS — Containers

My wife said, “We need to organize our kitchen cabinets. We need to get some food storage containers.”

“Okay,” I said, “let’s go to the Container Store.”

“Are you serious?” she said. “There’s a pandemic going on. We should order containers online.”

“Okay,” I said, and picked up my iPhone and logged on to Amazon. “How many containers do you want me to order?”

She said, “One container for sugar, one container for flour, one container for rice, one container for your dry cereal, one container for my oatmeal, one container for raisins, one container for pasta, one container for coffee, one container for mixed nuts, one container for cookies, one container for M&Ms, one container for gummies, one container for….”

“Okay,” I interrupted. “You need to contain yourself.”

My wife groaned, shook her head, and rolled her eyes.

“Here. I’m going to order this set of 16 containers of various sizes,” I said, handing her my iPhone for her to look at.

“Yeah, that’s fine,” she said. “That should be enough containers to get us started.”

“Ordered,” I said. “They’ll be delivered on Monday.”


Written for Linda G. Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt. Our assignment is to use the word “container” any way we’d like. Or think about a container of some kind and write about it.

    I have never actually been in a Container Store…. I have heard they are a little pricy.

    What I would most like from a container store is an interlocking standing closet system with mirrored fronts (this is because of what mirrors do for the light and space in the room). But I also like antique [whether truly antique or of the style] wardrobes or armoires or chifferobes. Container stores ARE pricey, I’ve looked (in the before time).
