A fun fact about me is that I just moved in with my boyfriend and, while our budget certainly expanded when combining our two incomes, it by no means amounted to enough for the massive apartment of my dreams. So I’ve been scouring the internet for every single space-saving hack out there—and that search invariably led me to Amazon and their very good deals for Amazon Prime Day. Meet: The best small apartment essentials on Amazon, all of which are majorly discounted right now.

This list includes every single thing you need to make your small space feel like home: Chic, machine-washable rugs! Vacuums that take up as little space as humanly possible in your only closet! Smart (small) speakers that will make you feel like you’re living in the future! With lightning-fast shipping and can’t-be-beaten prices, Amazon’s annual Prime Day Sale—happening July 11 and 12—is the place to go to buy all of the name-brand items you’ve been secretly saving on Pinterest and Instagram ever since you moved in. 

Keep scrolling to see and shop all of the deals. I’ve broken them down by price so you can skip around to find pieces that fit within your budget. Prepare to fall in love with your space all over again—I guarantee it.
