    Wayfair

    Promising review: "Now that I’m working from home, I converted my empty formal dining space into my office and I needed something to separate it from the living room. The four panel divider was perfect. It arrived ahead of time and in good condition. I know some have mentioned it is not a good privacy screen, so I included pics with light and natural lighting. It may not be your best option if you are looking for a privacy screen, but it is absolutely perfect to separate one area from another. This was very reasonably priced and I was able to get the four panels for less than most three-panel dividers. Five stars all around!" —HJ
    Price: $72.04 (available in four colors and sizes)

    29. A cat-shaped storage basket for the family with youngins, furry or human. It's a great way to store all kinds of toys and will act as a reminder for cleanup time.
