Living in an apartment or small home can be challenging. It always feels like you’re scrambling to find new and clever ways to make the closet seem larger, the bathroom fit more products, and the pantry stock more food. Thankfully, The Container Store has a zillion solutions to our organizational problems, and right now, many of them are up to 30 percent off during their Customer Favorites Sale. From shoe racks to stacking baskets, here are a few items we’re picking up to keep our lives clutter-free.

We’re always looking for clever ways to keep our shoes out of the way, and this over-the-door shoe rack, which holds a whopping 36 pairs, displays them in a pleasing way. We suggest hanging it within your interior closet doors to keep your storage out of sight.

Another small-space essential, this 6-compartment organizer hangs over a closet bar and can hold everything from sweaters to tees to handbags. Drawer compartments, sold separately, can be inserted for holding smaller items like socks and underwear.

A couple of these metal baskets around your kitchen or pantry work beautifully for containing snacks, jars, cups, plates, and napkins, and other kitchen essentials you may not have cupboard space for. Smaller items like K-cups have been said to fall through the gaps, so play around with what fits best for you in these baskets.

This woven-plastic bin has such attractive details (like those suede-feeling handles for easy transport) that you may want to leave these out all the time. However, when not in use, this bin actually stores flat for space-saving storage. We want to line our closets, display shelves and wherever else we need a catch-all bin with this basket.
