    1. A tool rack so all your cleaning utensils (i.e. mops, brooms, etc.) are nice and orderly. They'll also take up less space hanging neatly on the wall instead of in the corner of a closet.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I was thankful to have found such a high-quality solution for hanging all of my cleaning "tools"! This is a great organizer with MULTIPLE brackets that holds everything in my laundry room! My mops, brooms, dusters, etc., and even has hooks to hang my wet rags and steam mop pads! It was super easy to install too!" —GirlOfPeace

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    2. An over-the-cabinet holder that'll make it so you always know exactly where your cutting boards are.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This organizer is so useful! I recently moved and ended up with a much smaller kitchen, so I've been doing everything I can to make sure there's a place for everything and no wasted space. Luckily, I have pretty wide cabinets, so this works out perfectly. I have one holding my cutting boards (four standard plastic boards) and another holding my foil, cling wrap, and parchment paper boxes. The organizer is super easy to assemble, and it's completely versatile. Just hang it over the cabinet door or attach it to the wall/cabinet door, which means it's great for renters and owners." —Kerry

    Get it from Amazon for $13.87.

    3. Some flip-out bins designed to keep nuts, bolts, nails, and more exactly where you want, instead of that "safe place you'll totally remember" even though when you actually need them, you won't remember and just buy more.

    containerstore.com

    Get it from The Container Store for $11.19 (originally $13.99).

    4. A double closet rod for when you REALLY want to take your space up a notch and add more room to store your clothes.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I like everything about this product. It is perfect for me. I had been using the Marie Kondo method for all my pants and leggings for two years. This saves more space and makes my closet look less cluttered. I hung all my thinner pants and leggings under my blouses. Easy to select. I am definitely happier. I gave away the plastic chest of drawers I had in the closet." —Sylvia

    Get it from Amazon for $17.59.

    5. An outlet shelf to give your bathroom products ~a lift~ off your oh-so-precious counter space.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have been looking for a small shelf for my bathroom to put my mini speaker on, and this is the BEST! The size is perfect; I love it." —Kimberly MacNeill

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    6. A five-shelf hanging closet organizer for storing random things that take up more space on a hanger (such as sweaters or scarves or other non-hangable things like shoes).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This hanging shelf freed up a lot of space in my coat closet. It took an untamed mess of scarves, mittens, hats, and cleaned it up. The hangers are strong, metal, and unlikely to get bent out of shape from normal use. The build of the cloth shelves is sturdy enough for heavy sweaters or lighter toys, but I would refrain from storing things like shoes in this organizer." —Larson

    Get it from Amazon for $14.87 (available in seven colors).

    7. A shower curtain with pockets that may look a little strange, but if you don't have any storage space in your bathroom or shower, this will keep everything right where you need it.

    Amazon

    Plus, it can be used as both a shower curtain (facing out) or a shower liner (facing in).

    Promising review: "This is the perfect solution for my tub/shower situation. We have no shelving, and showerhead racks tend to get rusty/caked with soap and have even fallen off. We've had this in the shower for three months now, and it's great. It holds all our bottles, razors, and bars of soap. Yes, the soap can 'stick' to the mesh, but really it's not bothersome at all. The lower pockets are accessible when taking a bath. We've had no issues with mildew/mold, weird smells, or the pockets tearing away from the curtain. Definitely one of my favorite practical purchases!" —Rachel B.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.

    8. Some cable ties to keep your charging cords and headphones from getting tangled in the worst knots imaginable. I want to know what do they do inside my bag that they get so tangled every. single. time.????

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love these things. No, seriously. They have so many uses that I didn't even think about when I initially ordered them! I bought them to use as cable ties for my desk, but I've also started using them to wrap cords for stored appliances, to to keep my headphones from getting tangled in my purse, and I even use them to wrap the handles of my canvas grocery bags together to keep stuff from falling out!" —Nicole N.

    Get a pack of 20 from Amazon for $6.99.

    9. A wall organizer you can put all your important documents in and then grab them when you need them, instead of searching through that pile that's been sitting on your desk for wayyy too long.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a great product. It allowed me to declutter my massive paperwork at home. I also allocated two slots for my kids to insert their forms that require my signature, in turn helping me to teach them how to clean their place tidy and how to properly manage/file documents."—Xinsen

    Get it from Amazon for $9.28 (also available in grey).

    10. An over-the-cabinet organizer because one person TOTALLY needs a blow-dryer, two straighteners, three curling irons, and an assortment of other tools. Those tools are your secret to fabulous hair, and you should never compromise on that!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Great design! My hair-styling tools are hidden when I'm not using them, but it's still so easy to grab them whenever I need to. Delivery was also super fast." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in eight colors).

    11. A wall hook because a coat closet is a luxury we all don't have in life, so until then, this will keep your coats and scarves in a safe place rather than piled up on that chair.

    Ikea

    Promising review: "I have had two of these mounted in our mud room for over a year, and they hold everything! We have coats and bags on every rack all winter long." —Eileen25

    Get a seven hook rack from Ikea for $14.99.

    12. Some chic storage drawers you can put all your makeup in. It will be out of sight, but definitely not out of mind.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I am beyond satisfied with these drawers! I ordered a few units and since they are stackable, they save a lot of space on my vanity. I store all my makeup in them and I'm able to keep everything very organized. Tip: I viewed quite a few videos on YouTube about makeup storage suggestions, and these drawers are very popular!" —S Fabulous

    Get it from Amazon for $13.90 (available in 14 colors).

    13. A closet organizer, because accessories are some of the hardest things to keep orderly, right? This magic device is basically 14 hangers in one.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I just moved into a tiny apartment and needed a space-saving way to store my bags in my closet without creasing them. This hanging rack is perfect! My backpacks, big totes, and small purses all fit, and the rack itself seem very sturdy. Plus, each hook is pretty wide, meaning multiple bags can be hung on one hook. Great item for the price!" —CSG

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95.

    14. A wire basket you can put in your bathroom and fill with hand towels, washcloths, and anything else that'll make you feel like you're at a fancy hotel.

    ikea.com

    Promising review: "This is great! I’m using it as a storage caddy for all of my washing machine items. It is perfect for storing extra hand towels in and those small boxes of dryer sheets that seem to move everywhere." —Rachel226

    Get it from Ikea for $14.99.

    15. A hanger stacker you'll be so thankful for when you realize you never have to fight through a tangled mess of hangers to get the one you need to hang your shirt. Leave the untangling to Rapunzel.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I grew tired of throwing my empty hangers into a pile in my closet. They would get all tangled up and really frustrated the heck out of me every time I had to put clothes away! This hanger stacker seemed like an easy solution and boy, was I right! It assembles really easily (just two screws and an Allen wrench) and it is good at keeping my hangers organized. Buy one — you won't regret it!" —Bubbles456

    Get it from Amazon for $18.36.

    16. An over-the-cabinet plastic bag holder so you can grab a plastic bag whenever you need one. It's all about reusing and recycling, right?

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This grocery bag holder does exactly what it says it will! It is so easy to ball up the bags and drop them in the top, and also easy to pull one out when needed. It takes up minimal space, and it looks good, too! I should have bought this years ago!" —Karen

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in five colors).

    17. A turntable organizer you'll have a-round for a long time because you won't have to fight about what products to keep at the front of your cabinet all the time.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This holds all of my cooking oils and most-used seasonings. They now take up less room than they did before because they no longer have to be visible at the front! Now I just have to spin the lazy Susan and grab whatever I need." —Lone Wolf

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    18. An acrylic storage box that'll make you feel like you're a beauty influencer when you use it.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This product is just...wow. I have so much makeup and I thought there was no way that this organizer would fit it all — but it really does fit almost all of my makeup! This thing has seriously changed my life. My makeup is so organized, and I no longer have to search through my drawers looking for products and wasting my time anymore." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in 12 colors and sizes).

    19. A wall mount so you'll not only know exactly where your keys are at all times (game-changer), but so you can also write yourself helpful reminders, such as "Rent's due!" or "Take out the trash!"

    Amazon

    Plus, there's a spot to hold your mail.

    Promising review: "This is a must-have for anyone who is constantly misplacing their keys! I also love that I can jot down an item for the grocery store that I need to pick up, and it's also great for storing outgoing mail." —Debbie G.

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99 (available in three colors).

    20. A remote-control organizer – just think about how much time you've spent aimlessly looking for the remote after Netflix asks you if you're "Still Watching?"

    Amazon

    Yes, Netflix, I am still watching, and I don't appreciate the judgy tone, okay?

    Promising review: "This is a great remote holder. I was very pleasantly surprised because at that price I didn't expect it to be high quality. However, it is excellent quality! I put my remotes in two compartments, and there was room for my glasses, cell phone and iPod all in the remaining compartment. The inside is smoothly finished, with no sharp or hard edges, so I don't expect anything I put in it to get damaged. Finishing touches are very well done. Straight and even stitches with no threads hanging out. This does a great job of organizing my clutter and makes everything easy to find when I need it. I very pleased that I bought two initially." —AK Reader

    Get it from Amazon for $9.80 (available in two colors and styles).

    21. An over-the-door mesh organizer that's designed to fit 24 pairs of shoes, but it'll also work wonders for cleaning supplies, toys, and other miscellaneous items.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I wish we would have bought this sooner! It's so convenient to be able to keep so many shoes in a small area, especially here in NYC. This thing sits nicely on top of our door — ours is loaded up, and it's holding up just fine!"—RUCKUS

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in black and white).

    22. A day-of-the-week box designed to not only fit pills, but also vitamins and supplements so you always know if you took them.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this because I was horrible at remembering if I took my vitamins or not. I had an alarm set but if I was busy when it went off then a few hours later I'd still be wondering if I remembered to take them or not. Now I can have my pills set out for the week and see if I took them or not." —Loribelle

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98.

    23. A desk bookshelf to keep your favorite (and oh-so loved) books so neat that'll you'll want to read them all the time.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I ordered this bookshelf because I needed to organize my daughter's desk that's always covered with toys, notebooks, drawings, and other things. The shelf arrived very fast, was super easy to put together, and now her desk looks great! It holds a lot of her books, and seems pretty sturdy. I would definitely recommend it!" —LanaK569

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in two colors).

    24. A medicine cabinet organizer to maximize the amount of toiletries you can store in your medicine cabinet.

    Amazon

    You can also use 3M Command strips to attach these to a wall if you don't have a medicine cabinet.

    Promising review: "This is an awesome piece to have in my medicine cabinet. It keeps my razor up above on one shelf and then creams or whatever beneath, and on another shelf, I have one holding my toothbrush up high and other items underneath. I love it. It adds so much more room to my cabinets and makes it functional where before everything fell out all over. This is the best idea EVER!! More space, less mess. I LOVE IT!!" —C. Chamblee

    Get it from Amazon for $14.

    25. A compartment tray – your junk drawer doesn't have to look like a junk drawer.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My junk drawer is now nicely organized because of this! This is perfect for my kitchen drawers and all the miscellaneous stuff that accumulates like tape, pencils, extension cords, flashlights, matches, tiny screwdrivers, etc. that clutter them up." —Anneke Van Den Broek

    Get it from Amazon for $8.21.

    26. A three-compartment plastic lid organizer to prevent an avalanche of plastic containers every time you open your cabinets.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "We have tons of Tupperware, and the lids flying all over used to drive me bananas. This is one of those simple products that makes a big difference. It has three compartments to hold three different-sized lids. We must have at least 25 lids in there, and they all fit great. It's kind of life-changing!" —Jack

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    27. A three-tier spice rack so you don't have to waste any time taking all the spices out just to find the one that you're looking for.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.45.

    28. An under-bed storage bag to keep your winter clothes and linens out of sight (and out of mind) during the summer months. Closet space is a premium, and we shouldn't feel the need to keep all our clothes in there together.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought this because I really needed someplace to put the extra junk I had cluttering my room. It came with two large storage bags. The bags have nothing to hold them up they'll just fold right into themselves. They are very roomy and can hold up a lot. And they're small enough that they just slide right under the bed. Perfect if you have a low bed. I would definitely recommend them." —Lmon95

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in square and underbed).

    29. A silverware sorter designed to fit all your utensils together (on top of each other) in only half of the drawer (so you can fit all your other tools next to it).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This takes up a fraction of the drawer space that a traditional cutlery tray does, which leaves room beside it for other utensils that are longer and wider. It held a set of stainless plus some steak knives and a couple of serving spoons. It doubled the amount of use I could get from a single storage drawer." —Amanda White

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in gray and white).

    30. Drawer dividers that may actually make your day just a little bit better. Take my word for it. It's a small thing, but there's something so nice about not having to rummage through your undies, bras, etc. to find that one pair of socks that goes with the shoes you want to wear.

    Amazon

    It comes with four bins: a six-cell to fit scarves or ties, an eight-cell for underwear, 7-sell great for bras, and a 24-cell that fits socks.

    Promising review: "I never thought I could fix the mess that was my underwear drawer until I bought this organizer. It's perfect! Everything looks neat and in place now!" —Marjorie

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $15.87 (available in grey and brown).

    31. A pots and pans rack so you don't have to take out all of your pans when you really just need that big one at the bottom of the pile.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is my new favorite organization thing. It keeps the pans all neat and accessible. I don't have to dig through a huge stack of pans trying to get one out. They're just nicely stacked! It is a little tall for the inside of my cabinets, which makes the top shelf not very useable, but I don't even care because the bottom four are more than enough room for all of my pans. I still stack two pans on some of the shelves, but I can still easily grab the one I want without having to rattle everything or struggle to pull it out of the bottom. I absolutely love it." —Mama L

    Get it from Amazon for $16.87.

    32. A multi-purpose hanger for your bras and bralettes because those babies don't deserve to be smashed in a drawer over and over and over again.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is just such a great item to have in your closet. I use this hanger to keep my tanks readily available, but you can also use it to hang scarves, belts, bras, etc. Definitely worth the price for the organization it provides!" —281bella

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $10.99.

    33. A bakeware rack with adjustable dividers so you can customize it to fit whatever kitchen supplies you have.

Plus, it has non-skid feet which is a big plus!"—Organization Freak / Hobby Cook

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    34. An accordion organizer perfect for students who have a lot of papers the need. You'll give this product an A+.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought this to begin organizing my papers towards the end of the academic year, and it has worked perfectly!

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in 10 colors).

    35. An upright dinner plate holder, because stacking every plate and bowl on top of each other is something you don't have to do. Using this will make it so much easier to get exactly what you need when you're making dinner.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This was just what I was looking for to organize our limited cabinet space. My plates are 12 inches across and made of heavy ceramic with scalloped edges, and six of them fit perfectly in the holder." —Tracy

    Get it from Amazon for $16.25.

    36. Clear drawer organizers for your bathroom so your hairbrushes, cotton swabs, toothpaste, and whatever else you need are kept orderly, but easy to access.

    The Container Store

    Get this set of three from The Container Store for $9.56 (originally $11.96).

    37. A baseball cap holder I'll go ~a-head~ and say now that you'll be very thankful for as it frees up valuable space in your closet.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    You can also use them to organize other kinds of hats and even bags and purses!

    Promising review: "This clears up half the mess in my closet. I should have ordered two. It fits well on a pair of bi-fold doors and makes things neater and the hats easier to get to." —Lee

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    38. A battery organizer that may seem a little out there (like: who keeps that many batteries in their home?), but when your remote, smoke detector, and kid's favorite toy all run out of batteries at the same time, you'll be forever grateful.

    Amazon

    Plus, it has a tester that detaches so you can figure out if the battery is actually dead.

    Promising review: "We have forever kept spare batteries in sandwich baggies in a kitchen junk drawer for quick convenience. The bags would always come open and scatter batteries or tear. One day, I decided to reorganize — I found this on Amazon and decided to give it a try. It was a major step in reorganizing my junk drawer! I also discovered that I had five dead batteries stored for use. How wonderful was that? Now I'll never replace a dead battery with another dead battery. I love things that help me stay organized and this is a huge plus." —FergFam

    Get it from Amazon for $14.92.

    39. Some expandable drawer dividers to help you show off the Marie Kondo-fold you've been perfecting ever since she came into your life. Even if *all* your clothes bring you joy, you can at least make them look this good.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are the greatest for organizing stacks of clothes in deep drawers. Installation is quick and easy, and they can be moved if you decide to reconfigure. I love this product! I highly recommended." —Lou Powers

    40. A three-tier corner shelf organizer for all that china you totally needed to register for...even if you haven't used it once since you got it.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought two of these and love them. I wanted something that allowed me to stack the dishes without setting them of top of each other and also looked nice since they're visible through glass cabinet doors. I'm very happy with them." —Sunny

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

    41. And a hanging shower caddy to prevent your tub from becoming a place where products go to die (and mold).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I like this caddy because it is a nice metal finish and is just the right size for my shower. It holds plenty and the suction cups keep it from moving around. It was super easy to put together." —JC

    Get it from Amazon for $17.87 (available in two styles).

    Marie Kondo would be so proud of you.
