Since the show has a partnership with The Container Store, many of the products from the episodes are available there. Unfortunately, many of them are quite pricey, especially for everyday use.
That’s why we’ve rounded up some of the most extravagant Home Edit recommendations and found more affordable alternatives. We’ve also linked each of our recommendations with a link to the original product in The Container Store so you can make your own comparison purchases.
Maybe some of that $ 120 basket just speaks to you in a way that $ 18 doesn’t. Anyway, check them out below and see which one you (and your wallet) like best!
Chrislley Slim Rolling laundry basket
The show recommends this $ 120 rolling laundry basket, but you can get a similar model from Chrislley for just $ 18. It doesn’t have that much detail on the outside, but it does the job and keeps your laundry organized and discreet.
Like its more expensive cousin, this laundry basket comes with a pale neutral bag on a sturdy frame and small wheels. The slim design also means you can tuck it into any angle.
The main differences between the two products are structure and aesthetics. The Container Store basket has larger handles on the top and a larger gap between the bottom and the floor. It also has more detailed stitching on the outside.
Sorbus acrylic makeup tray
Clear, stackable containers are a staple of The Home Edit brand, but their costs add up quickly. Sorbus offers a $ 19 stackable alternative to the $ 30 drawer recommended on the show.
With dimensions of 30 x 30 x 15 cm, the Sorbus drawer has enough space to neatly store all your favorite cosmetics or jewelry. Keep everything accessible and visible – you no longer have to remember which drawer you put something in!
Ultrawall bicycle rack
Using walls as storage space is one of the most effective tips on the show, especially in the garage. The show recommends this $ 116 rack that can store up to four bikes, but this one from Ultrawell seats six for just $ 63.
Both use sturdy hooks and an efficient design to maximize storage space. And both keep your bikes securely on the wall, while also offering the ability to adjust the space between them as needed.
To be fair, the more expensive rack has one feature that the Ultrawell model doesn’t: designated hanging space for helmets and other gear. However, if you want to, it’s easy enough to use one of the extra pockets on the cheaper option as a helmet hook!
Amazon Basics storage unit with four shelves
As long as it’s sturdy and stable, why pay $ 120 for a metal storage rack when you can get a comparable four-shelf unit from Amazon for just $ 57? Plus, instead of £ 300 per shelf, the Amazon option can hold up to £ 350 per shelf.
Furthermore, the two units are very similar. They are both silver with adjustable shelves (some assembly is required for both), and they are both perfect for garage storage. The Amazon option is slightly narrower and more than a foot shorter. However, if neither is a deal breaker, for less than half the cost of The Container Store version, it’s a great replacement!
Glenor Co. jewelry organizer
Keeping jewelry organized can be really tedious. That’s why the Home Edit team recommends this $ 86 stackable storage kit. For a more affordable option, check out this jewelry organizer from Glenor Co. It has a similar structure, with several layers of separate cubicles for different jewelry, but it only costs $ 30.
As you would expect, the layout is slightly different from the other product. Both have four different tiers with four different layouts, but the Glenor Co. set does not have a layer from one box (the largest divisions are quarters). However, as a bonus, it includes a mirror!
YouCopia Lazy Susan Organizer
A lazy Susan is a popular organizer, especially in the kitchen. It keeps items separate and organized in a closet, while also making them easy to see and access – just turn it! While the show recommends a $ 30 product, this divided acrylic Crazy Susan from YouCopia does the same job for $ 20, without much difference in texture or materials.
The YouCopia product is about an inch smaller in diameter, but that also means it takes up even less space. This clear plastic turntable also includes dividers to help organize your kitchen products.
Smart Design kitchen storage rack
While this Smart Design over-door storage rack is shorter than the show’s featured product, at $ 45, it’s also much cheaper than the $ 77 option on the show. Both feature a white wire design with different basket sizes. Here you can store everything from boxes and jars to bottles and Tupperware.
Like the longer, more expensive option, the Smart Design rack has six shelves with the ability to adjust the height of each. All that’s missing is an extension long enough for particularly tall doors.
