At Clever Container, our goal is to help you “Make Room for Life.” But making room for life isn’t just about cleaning out a closet or organizing your pantry. It’s about creating functional, beautiful spaces that allow you to focus on the things that are truly important in life: family, friends, and fulfillment. It’s why our products are designed with quality, function, and versatility in mind. It’s the passion that drives all of us at Clever Container.
In July 2006, two friends from Michigan – one a professional organizer, the other a stay-at-home mom – had a light bulb moment: Why not bring organizing tools and techniques to those who need it most in a format that’s both fun and informative? The idea for Clever Container was born.
After many successful vendor shows, Clever Container introduced our “Organizing Party” format in January 2007. Then an article in the Detroit News sparked interest from individuals across the U.S. and, in March 2007, we enrolled our first consultants. The Clever “family” was starting to grow.
In 2011, the original founders partnered with a family of entrepreneurs with a vision for making Clever Container one of the leading direct sales companies in the country. Our distribution facility moved out of co-founder Jennifer Weaver’s basement and into a warehouse just outside Chicago. Just three years later, we made the move to our current facility, which houses our entire Home Office team alongside our 100,000-square-foot warehouse.
Today, Clever Container continues to grow and thrive under the dedicated guidance of the entrepreneurial Merrick and Schwan families as more and more Consultants take advantage of this unique business opportunity.




There are lots of direct sales companies out there, so what makes Clever Container such a great opportunity?
Clever Container truly is a ground floor opportunity– we recently just passed the mark of 2,000 consultants. In the direct sales world, that is an incredibly small number (for comparison — Scentsy has over 200,000 consultants and Thirty-One has 170,000!) So what that means for you is the field is WIDE open nearly everywhere. There are thousands upon thousands of towns and communities who have never heard of Clever Container yet. You have a golden opportunity to be the first person to introduce your friends, family and community to Clever Container.
Another thing that makes this an especially great opportunity is that we are the ONLY direct sales/party plan company that focuses exclusively on organizing products. This is great news because organizing products are HOT sellers. Every women’s magazine at the checkout stand has a featured article on organizing. Why? Because organizing is a need that is common to almost everyone. And most of today’s women are not looking for an elaborate organizational system. They want solutions that are quick, easy and affordable. That is exactly what Clever Container delivers!
What kind of training is provided?
New consultant training covers business basics such as getting started, Bookings, Host Coaching, how to do a demonstration, Team Building, and Customer Care. These topics are all covered in the new consultant manual you will have instant access to on our consultant extranet system immediately after you sign up as a consultant. These topics are also covered via telephone conference calls and video tutorials and lots of helpful tips and resources on our team Facebook page which you will also have immediate access to when you sign up.  [🙂]
