If you’re not familiar with the German discount superstore Aldi, it’s time to head over there. While the store is known for its budget-friendly (and delicious!) groceries, the brand is also making a name for itself in the decor, furniture, organizing, and dupe sections. And just in this month is one chic storage gem that you’ll want to put in every room of your house — but hurry, because it won’t last long. 

Aldi’s Merry Moments Decorative Two-Tier Tray comes in three festive colorways: all white, natural light wood with beaded accents, and a red Santa-themed option (complete with a black belt and gold buckle!). The two tiers offer ample space for displaying your holiday trinkets, sweets, or appetizers — but if you get creative, you can take it to the next level in a snap. Line it with soaps, candles, and toiletries for the bathroom; jewelry, perfume, and plants in the bedroom; and writing supplies and organizing gadgets in the office. For only $12.99 — less than half of what most competitors’ trays go for — you’re sure to get plenty of bang for your buck from its simple, versatile design. 

At 17 inches tall with a sturdy metal handle and tiers measuring 9 and 12.5 inches in diameter, the tray is easy to assemble and transport and can hold a significant amount of items. You can even paint it to better match your decor! Shoppers in the Aldi Aisle of Shame Community Facebook group have been posting about the adorable tray since it hit shelves — about how much they love it and how hard it is to get.

“It’s a fantastic piece to switch up for each holiday with simple, inexpensive decorations,” Aldi shopper Kristin Ingraham said. “It looks great as a centerpiece on the dining room table but can be easily moved to make room for dinner!”

Aldi also sells a set of trinkets for the tray (as seen above) separately, for only a few dollars. If you’re eyeing the tray for your decorative storage arsenal, we suggest running, not walking, to your local Aldi, because they’ll be gone before you know it.

If you don’t live near an Aldi or the tray is sold out at your local store, don’t worry: Amazon has plenty of similar options available for just a few dollars more that ship directly to you, like this rustic wooden tray, and this beaded white farmhouse tiered tray. Whichever one you opt for, just remember not to stash it with your holiday supplies and decorations because you can use it year-round!
