This year, instead of starting out with a bunch of resolutions tantamount to a complete overhaul of your life, why not find a few little ways to actually, sustainably set yourself up for some small victories? Because some of easiest-yet-most-impactful changes tend to start in the kitchen, we looked through Sur La Table’s clearance sale to find some ideas.

What we came up with: three brilliant, inexpensive gadgets that will help you make better habits in the new year. Here are our top picks guaranteed to help you have a successful January and an even better 2019.

1. Sur la Table Round Glass Storage Containers, $13 for six (regularly $20)

If you’re making an attempt to cook more food at home these days, you know how important it is to have a good set of storage containers (for prepped ingredients and leftovers!). You also know that mismatched containers — and missing lids — are incredibly frustrating! Upgrade your system with this glass set. The pieces are microwave-safe, making heating up leftovers easy, and they won’t warp or discolor like plastic. Glass containers are always a good investment, and these are a steal at almost 40 percent off. You might want to order a few sets while you’re at it.

2. Chef’n Veggichop Pro, $25 (regularly $40)

Speaking of meal prep, if the thought of getting out a knife and cutting board is a deterrent to trying a new recipe, think of this as your new sous chef. Instead of a motorized food processor that requires a bit more setup and cleaning, this is a simple-but-effective manual chopper that gives you the control to dice ingredients to precisely the right size. Roughly chop a handful of veggies for omelettes, salads, or stir-fries, or give a smaller mince for things like salsas, sauces, or dressings. The more you chop, the finer ingredients get. You can even use this thing to make dips, hummus, or pesto — all while your cutting board stays in the cabinet!

3. Stojo Collapsible 16-Ounce Cup, $10 (regularly $18)

Whether you’re trying to cut back on your daily coffee shop visit or you want to curb your single-use plastic habit, this collapsible cup from Stojo is a great solution. The flexible, silicone material maintains your beverage’s temperature (hot or cold), and the expandable design allows for up to 16 ounces of your favorite drink (the equivalent of a grande from Starbucks). When it’s not in use, you can fold it down to a tiny two inches, meaning you have no excuse to leave it behind. We also love that the top has a built-in hole for the reusable straw (because we all know that disposable plastic straws are no good)!
