The Wayfair 5 Days of Deals Sale Is *the* Time to Stock Up on Organizers, Bedding...and Chic Litter Boxes?!

If you needed an incentive to update a neglected corner of your home, consider this: Wayfair is offering up to 80 percent off bedding, furniture, cookware and holiday decor—and they're giving 10 percent of the profits to Community Solutions, a nonprofit designed to end homelessness. (You save money! You're giving back to those in need! You're crossing something off your to-do list! Talk about a win-win-win.)

It's all part of the brand's Five Days of Deals, a promotion running from October 7 through 12. There are dozens of items on sale, so we did the digging for you, highlighting the top 10 must-buys for your home.

The true secret to your best sleep ever? Blackout curtains. The one challenge is that they can be pricey, which is why it's worth pouncing on these panels. Available in six colors and three sizes (ranging up to 96 inches in length), you're bound to find something that works for your room. What we love, though, is their heft—each panel weighs more than a pound—providing a thick curtain that can truly block out light and buffer out some of the noise of your neighbor's The Voice sing-alongs.

Extend those alfresco dinner parties all fall long (and well into winter, depending on where you live) with this chic fire pit. At 48 inches wide, the whole family will be able to gather 'round, and you can choose between two stone options, as long as they're gray (light or dark, to be exact).

OK, so that firm mattress-in-a-box turned out to be, well, rock hard, and you don't have the budget to spring for a new one (even if it is $200). That's where this three-inch-thick, fluffy as a cloud mattress topper comes in. It has more than 5,000 five-star reviews touting its comfort (and how easy it is to slip on), and right now, it's 78 percent off.

Talk about a space-saver: This 62-inch-tall floor lamp has a built-in end table, so you have a place to rest your drink while you binge-read (or, OK, scroll Instagram). With its minimalist design and linen lampshade, it's a transitional piece that can work well for mid-century modern fans and coastal grandmothers alike.

As a food editor and recipe developer, I have beaten up a lot of nonstick cookware, but I remain a fan of T-fal for its easy cleanup, cool-touch handles and thermo-spot indicator—AKA a red ring that appears around the logo in the center of the pan, letting you know the pan's preheated and ready to go. (Oh, and it's 64 percent off right now.)

Kitty litter boxes can be a stinky eyesore. While we can't help you with the 'stinky' part, we've got your back when it comes to the latter. Lipton's kitty litter box doubles as a planter, and the base is easy to clean with soap and water. If you're all about symmetry in your home, one reviewer recommends buying a second to use as a cat house. Pop in a pillow, and your fur baby's lounge is good to go.

You know those spices that have fallen to the back of your shelf, never to be used again? It's time to change that. This tiered stand lets you see a dozen spices at once, instantly giving you The Home Edit levels of organization with almost zero effort. (Pro tip: Snag a second to store beauty products. It may be just the inspo you need to finally start using that vitamin C serum.)

When you want buttery soft sheets on a budget, look no further than brushed microfiber. Metal brushes buff the polyester so it's almost velvety to the touch, but that's not all—they're also hypoallergenic and machine-washable, making them luxe-feeling yet fuss-free.

With the holidays coming up, this 10-piece set is sure to become your go-to. It doesn't just store leftovers; these five baking dishes are microwave-, oven-, freezer- and dishwasher-safe. Our favorite feature, however, is that they're nonporous, so if you forget about that casserole in your fridge until New Year's, it won't retain odors or stains. Little victories, right?

Maybe planters aren't your style (another thing to keep alive!). If that's the case, take a closer look at this side table, which doubles as a discreet kitty litter box. The louvered doors make it easy to clean out the box when you need to, while otherwise obscuring your pet's mess from view.
