When you are the world champions, you tend to do things the right way.  When you are the Miami Heat organization, doing things the right way has become second nature.  In the summer of 2010, the Heat shook up the basketball world by signing Lebron James and Chris Bosh as well as re-signing Dwyane Wade.  As soon as that happened, the Miami Heat became the hottest ticket in professional sports, and business picked up for the organization in all facets.  Everything from ticket sales to TV advertisement requests went through the roof.  After two seasons of experiencing crazy fanfare and demand for their products, the Heat decided to expand the gift shop in the arena.  I was in the gift shop during the holiday season to grab some presents for some family members and I noticed that their stock room was full of Monster Bins.

Stacking Containers in the Heat Gift Shop

On the right hand side of this picture, you will notice their supply room has plastic containers stacked on top of each other.  These containers are being used to hold everything from Lebron James jerseys to Heat branded key-chains.  When you do things properly, as the Heat always do, efficiency is the key.  From the players to the management, there is no organization more efficient.  It wouldn’t make sense to expand your store to be able to fit all of the customers and merchandise and not use up all of the available space.  By using these stackable containers, the Heat have made use of every last piece of available space and therefore will run much more efficiently and more cost effective.
