Springtime is basically the New Year for neatniks: the time when organizing resolutions are made, to-do lists are drawn up, and tasks are checked off one by one (or else they're abandoned by the time summer starts). To help us stick to our closet-cleaning resolutions this year, the Container Store's mega sale is giving us a few less excuses. Closet organizers are too expensive, you say? Discounts are now up to 25 percent off on over 600 closet-transforming essentials. You don't know where to begin? Their starter kits will get you going. You don't know what you're doing? Their expert tips will help. Okay, are you all out of excuses? Shop the essentials below before the sale ends on May 13, and you're already halfway to your closet-cleaning goals.

Napa Woven Storage Bins

Problem #1: Everything is piled onto your closet shelves without any containers. The simple solution: Invest in some bins and baskets that are sturdy and stylish. Use one bin to corral socks, and another to stash belts. Things are looking better already.

Grey Drop-Front Shoe Box

No matter how tidy your closet is, shoe storage is probably still a problem. To keep your favorite flats, mules, and comfy sneakers in tip-top shape, stash them in drop-front storage bins that are almost as chic as the shoes they contain.

Blue Waters Scented Shelf & Drawer Liners

Painting the interior of your closet may be a little more than you'd like to do right now, but adding a colorful (and scented!) drawer liner to the top of the shelves gets a similar effect in way less time. A pop of pattern has the power to change the entire look of an all-white closet.
