One silver lining of suddenly finding yourself at home 24/7 is that you’re practically guaranteed to tackle your spring cleaning and organization goals. If you need help getting started, The Container Store is having a huge sale on tons of organization solutions, offering up to 25% off all kitchen and pantry essentials. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite sale picks, including items that merge style and functionality to help you declutter your cabinets and storage solutions that require practically no assembly. Your future self will thank you for handling these tasks while you’ve got the time.

1. Expandable Bamboo Utensil Tray

Whether you live in a rental or have custom cabinetry, this expandable utensil tray adjusts from 13 to 22 inches to fit any kitchen drawer. Depending on the amount of space you have, you can use one to organize cutlery and another to corral kitchen tools, tea bags, or coffee pods. The low-profile sections make it easy to find what you’re looking for, and the bamboo material is modern and easy to clean.

Buy: Expandable Bamboo Utensil Tray, $22 (normally $30)

2. Vertica Wire Stacking Bins

Storing produce can be tricky, especially if you’re trying to stretch certain staples like potatoes, citrus, or onions for the long haul. These stackable bins come in two sizes, and since they’re made from wire mesh, items can breathe so they’ll stay fresh longer. Plus, it’s easy to see just how much you have left of whatever you’re storing — whether it’s canned food, fruit, or snacks. Keep the bins tucked away in a pantry or display their industrial-chic style on your countertops!

Buy: Vertica Wire Stacking Bins, $18 (normally $22)

3. 2-Tier Bamboo Lazy Susan

Vertical space often goes wasted in kitchen cabinets, which is why we love lazy Susans. This two-tier bamboo design is only 10 inches in diameter and sturdy enough to hold a generous number of spice tins, canned items, and jarred condiments. The slight lip on the outer edge contains potential spills or drips, so your cabinets stay organized and clean. Take our advice and buy two!

Buy: 2-Tier Bamboo Lazy Susan, $13 (normally $17)

4. OXO Good Grips POP 5-Piece Canisters

If you’ve waited to purchase these chef-level canisters, right now you can save $10 while they’re on sale. The set of five different sizes fits a range of common pantry goods that are best kept airtight (think: pasta, dried fruit, nuts, and coffee beans). They fit snugly together and even stack, so you can toss those bulky boxes and make the most of your storage!

Buy: OXO Good Grips POP 5-Piece Canisters, $40 (normally $50)

5. Stasher Silicone Stand-Up Reusable Bag

Reusable silicone storage bags are an incredibly versatile and eco-friendly alternative to single-use plastic, and we love Stasher so much they made our Kitchen Essentials list! While you can find a lot of brands producing silicone bags, Stasher’s are dishwasher, freezer, microwave, and Instant Pot safe. The full line is included in the sale, but we’re fans of this giant bag, which holds up to 56 fluid ounces and 12 cups of dry ingredients. Since it seals tightly and stands up vertically, you can use it to marinate meats or store batches of soup without worrying about leaks or spills.

Buy: Stasher Silicone Stand-Up Reusable Bag, $16 (normally $20)

6. OXO Greensaver Produce Keepers

Keep your produce organized and fresh for longer with these storage containers that have a replaceable carbon filter and breathable basket to help slow down spoilage. A sliding vent on the lid helps control the humidity level to prevent excess moisture that can lead to mold (no thanks!). The containers come in three sizes, ranging from 1.6 to 5 quarts, as well as an upright model for storing herbs.

Buy: OXO Greensaver Produce Keepers, $16 (normally $20)

7. Expandable Under Sink Organizer

The deep, cavernous space under kitchen sinks can be hard to organize, particularly if you’re navigating around plumbing. This two-tiered under-sink organizer can be customized to fit around garbage disposals or exposed pipes, plus it expands horizontally to make the most of the width of your area and offers the option of changing the heights of the shelves or removing them completely. Two pull-out bins are included, so it’s easy to see and grab sponges or dishwashing pods, and the roomy shelves can fit bottles and boxes of cleaning supplies. 

Buy: Expandable Under Sink Organizer, $32 (normally $40)

8. Pull-Out Lid Organizer

This pull-out organizer measures just over three inches wide and takes up minimal space in an under-counter cabinet while creating a sense of zen for anyone who loathes searching for the matching lid for their pots or pans (hello, nice to meet you too!). It works just as well for other flat kitchen items, including cutting boards, cookie sheets, serving trays, and more!

Buy: Pull-Out Lid Organizer, $10 (normally $13)

9. Pull-Down Spice Rack

This pull-down spice rack makes use of the vertical space in your cabinet or pantry so you can easily view contents, and pulls out and down on a hinge so you can grab what you need without knocking anything over (aka the dreaded spice domino effect). Over a dozen jars or tins can fit comfortably among the three tiers, and they’ll stay in place thanks to side guards. The design also makes it easy to keep your spice area clean; just pull out the rack and wipe down your surface.
