Sometimes finding something as simple as a pair of gloves in your closet can turn into an adventure, with the contents spilling onto the floor… and no gloves in sight. That’s why organizing and maximizing every tiny nook is essential to getting ahead of the clutter. Luckily, there are plenty of ways you can optimize every inch of your closet—even the doors—thanks to The Container Store‘s latest sale, which is offering 25 percent off closet essentials through Oct. 13. We scoped out a few of our favorites for you—and they start as low as $5.

Platinum Elfa Mesh Laundry Sorter

Though it’s part of The Container’s Store classic custom Elfa line, you don’t need to do a complete closet makeover to use this mesh-basket unit. Rather than get multiple laundry baskets to separate whites and colors, this laundry sorter helps you stay organized without taking up much room. It includes two small and one large pull-out drawer and a melamine top with a wood grain finish that you can top with another storage bin to sort delicates.

Non-Slip Rubberized Suit Hangers, Case of 40

Wood hangers definitely feel luxurious but they take up space and there’s always that fear of silkier items sliding right off. Thin, slip-resistant hangers are the secret to fitting more within tiny closets. These are constructed of a heavy-duty, non-slip ABS plastic with an incredibly slim profile that helps pack in more while ensuring it all stays on the hanger. A pack of 40 makes it easy to keep all your items uniform and organized.

Extra customization options are also available so you can get the configuration that works best for you. You may find yourself adding this wall rack to every door in sight.
