Essentials Heather Gray Collapsible Storage Containers

If you enjoy doing some spring cleaning, that might also include some spring organizing. Dollar Tree makes that easier with these collapsible storage containers, which measure 11 x 11 x 8 inches. Their heather gray exterior makes them look sophisticated enough for a home office, den or library or functional for a garage, bedroom or kids’ closet. The collapsible part means that when you’re not using them they’re easy to store and easy to carry with built-in handles.

Whiskey Barrel Planters

If you live in sunnier climes, it’s going to be time to refresh your outdoor spaces, and that might include putting in some nice new plants. Dollar Tree has whiskey barrel planters, designed to look like actual whiskey barrels. These containers are lightweight, so they are easy to move around. The planters measure 8 inches wide and can even be used indoors to breathe some plant life into your home or office.

Hanging Basket Planters with Coco Plant Liners

Staying on the gardening theme, you might also want to consider these decorative but sturdy metal wire basket planters, with hooks, meant to be hung outdoors or in a sunroom. Fill them with dripping plants or flowers that can attract pollinators such as bees, butterflies and even hummingbirds. You’ll also need to fill them with these pre-molded coco plant liners, made of natural fibers that help the plants retain moisture, and keep them from making a mess all over your patio or porch.

Luminessence Metallic LED Votive Candles

If you like candles, but not the threat of real fire, set up some ambience inside or out with Luminessence votive candles. The LED lights are supposed to last for up to 120 hours and can be controlled with a switch. You can choose from elegant silver and gold to add a little mood to an event, a meal or just a night in.
