Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A set of Shoe Slotz that stack your shoes on top of each other, so you have no excuse not to buy that amazing pair you saw this weekend. You'll totally have room now!

    Promising review: "This is a wonderful space saver. I was able to put 11 pairs of shoes on my shoe rack, which usually can only store 6. I turned it around to make it easier to get the pair that I need. I will definitely buy this again." —JennyM

    Get them from Amazon for $29.95.

    2. 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).


    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 $12.87 (available in bronze and grey).

    3. A Park-a-Purse modular organizer to take advantage of the space above your hanging clothes. Purses and shoes will look so much neater and you'll be to see everything, even that clutch you forgot you bought months ago.


    Get it from Walmart for $47.99.

    4. A hanger organizer to calm you mind because just *looking* at that "before" picture is giving me anxiety about much space hangers take up.

    Promising review: "The struggle with hangers has been real for quite some time, I wish I would have known about this thing sooner! Seriously, laundry is enough of a PIMA, to not fight with hangers will be wonderful. It arrived double boxed and nicely packaged within. Assembly was simple—a total of 4 screws to attach the vertical pieces to the base with the wrench included. (No personal tools needed). It doesn't wiggle and seems sturdy. Hopefully it stays that way because this has saved me a ton of room and hassle! I'm buying another for child size hangers." —Kara Adams

    Get it from Amazon for $16.48.

    5. An over-the-door organizer with four clear pockets so you can see exactly what you put in each bin so nothing will get lost.

    Promising review: "This is the perfect size for a small door and space. I love the clear panels because you can easily see what's inside. It's easy and quick to assemble and holds heavy items effortlessly. I plan to purchase more in future." —Angela D. White

    Get it from Amazon for $14.87.

    6. A shirt folding board that'll make your closet look like a department store—it'll be like shopping in your own closet EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

    Promising review: "I'm in love with this folder. I actually love folding clothes with this. The room you can make is crazy. I will never be without it. I don't have a lot of space, but I counted double the amount than I could fit before. It's amazing." —Kimberly Goff

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99.

    7. A double closet rod for when you REALLY want to take your space up a notch. Just be careful, because all this extra room may inspire you to buy even more clothes.

    Promising review: "This is sturdy and lightweight. This closet rod doubled my available space in seconds. There is plenty of space on the top rod for longer shirts and tops and shorter ones fit perfectly on the lower rod, without touching the floor. Plus, hangers stay in place and don't slide to one end or the other based on how heavy items are, and so far the rod hasn't sagged or bowed at all. And I have all my sweatshirts and heavy fleece jackets on the bottom rod. The space will obviously depend on the height of the closet rod you hang this from, but I would highly recommend this for anyone with need of more closet space!!" —CCBunE

    Get it from Amazon for $11.52.

    8. A wire shelf divider that helps to keep clothes and linens vertical, so you can stack higher and fit more.


    Promising review: "Before I put these dividers in, my clothes would fall over each other on the shelves, and I had trouble finding what I needed. No more! I can't believe what a difference a simple thing like this makes. They are very sturdy, thanks to the "spring loaded" feature." —Hubba1

    Get it from Walmart for $15.

    9. A tank top hanger designed to hold at least six camis, bathing suits, or strappy dresses, thus reducing the total number of hangers you have in your closet.


    Promising review: "I bought two three-packs and eliminated over 20+ hangers from my closet!! I have a little closet and these definitely help. I haven't really had them long enough to know if it's a pain getting between the layers when they are hanging, but so far I like it. They are a little slippery, a little grippy on the hooks would have been nice, but overall they work well!" —Hannah B.

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $9.99.

    10. And some nonslip velvet hangers designed to take up less space and hold clothes better, so half your wardrobe doesn't end up on the floor when you try and take one shirt out.

    Promising review: "These hangers are amazing. They take up minimal space, are sturdy, and, best of all, the clothes don't fall down from them so it keeps everything looking neat. I have replaced all of the hangers in my closet with these hangers, and I couldn't be happier. I am pretty sure I now have double the amount of space. I love this product and would buy again." —Vida Maars

    Get a pack of 30 on Amazon for $15.99 (available in black, grey, and, beige, and in 50- and 100- pack).

    11. A closet door and wall rack solution so all your accessories have a place to go instead of wherever you can find a spare spot for them.

    The Container Store

    Promising review: "I have these closet racks throughout out my house— pantry, vacuum cleaner organizer, floral closet, bathroom toiletries. They double my space and make it so much easier to find what I'm looking for in small places. I couldn't be without them." —MaryMacHill

    Get it from The Container Store for $96.

    12. An wide stacking shelf you can adjust the height of to fit even more t-shirts underneath it., Amazon

    Promising review: "This doubled my closet overhead storage space! Even though I am tall (5'9"), it can be hard reaching stuff on top of this shelf, but overall, it's the perfect size because there's room underneath and still plenty on top!" —mdf96

    Get it from Amazon for $17.77.

    13. An over-the-door shoe rack for people whose sole reason for living = buying cute shoes. Oh, and it's also for people who just want to keep their shoes out of a random pile on their closet floor.


    Promising review: "This is a great shoe rack. I was surprised how many shoes I could fit on it. The space between each row is tall enough that you can fit the shoes stacked instead of next to each other if they're flats or smaller shoes, effectively doubling the capacity. I managed to fit probably an extra 10 pairs over the 36 capacity. Its pretty sturdy, I haven't had any issues with it falling or moving when I close my door. Do keep in mind that it comes out pretty far, so you won't be able to open the door as far as you probably could before." —Maricela Gonzalez

    Get it from Amazon for $24.71.

    14. A closet storage organizer with bins for anyone who really doesn't have room for a dresser, but doesn't want to hang up every single t-shirt they own. You can store everything that works better folded in this., Amazon

    Promising review: "This was very quick and easy to assemble. It has lots of space for my kids’ clothes that don’t hang, along with extra squares on top for socks, etc. I will be purchasing more for my own closet. It definitely saves space. And it's worth the money. It has three large rows with two baskets, and more can be added." —Gee

    Get it from Amazon for $21.

    15. Or a deluxe custom closet organizer system that'll overhaul your entire closet and make space for everything that ~sparks joy~. Marie Kondo would be so proud.


    Promising review: "I couldn't be happier with this easy to install and customize closet system. It doubled the storage in my small closet, and if I feel like changing it up, it's so easy to move the shelves/bars around. Also it has so many options for drawers, shoes, etc. I would highly recommend this to anyone. I needed more hanging space, and this was perfect for me." —MMT in TC

    Get it from Amazon for $114.99+ (available in 3-6 foot and 4-8 foot).

    16. A set of Wonder Hangers you'll wonder how you ever lived without. These babies take five hangers and condense them into one, giving you ample space.


    Promising review: "These wonder hangers are WONDERful. My closet space has doubled, at least. I have ordered them for every closet in my home. I also recommended them to friends and family. I love them." —Nancy J

    Get a pack of 10 from Amazon for $14.99.

    17. An over-the-door eight tier shelving unit you may think is for your pantry, but you can also use it on your closet door for small things (like jewelry and other accessories).

    Promising review: "I love it. The unit is sturdy and helps free up space in my closet, which is awesome! I would buy this again for another closet. It's great for my tiny apartment. The shipping was fast too." —Tina R

    Get it from Amazon for $47.99.

    18. A Boot Butler to take your tall boots to new ~heights~. This device takes them off the floor and displays them at eye level, so you can more easily plan you outfits around them in the morning.


    Promising review: "The is a wonderful product. I highly recommend it for boot lovers. I use mine with cowboy boots and faced the toes out. I doubled my space immediately, and the system looks nice in the closet. Its easy to use and versatile. I highly recommend this product if you need a bit more room for those extra boots you need to buy." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99+ (available in 3- and 5-pairs hanging).

    19. A set of vacuum bags because storing linens, blankets, and even out of season clothing really ~sucks~ less when you flatten them down to basically nothing.

    Just put whatever you want to squish in the bag, use the double-zip seal to make sure it's really close, and then suck all the air out with the valve and watch the bag become 1/3 of the size.

    Promising review: "This product arrived as promised in great condition.

    I was able to fit double the pillows and blankets in my closet! It was my first time using space saver bags so can't speak to how long they last or how frequent it needs re-inflated. But even if it needs to be re-inflated, it's easy to do and takes only a few seconds with a vacuum cleaner." —Maya

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in medium, large, and jumbo).

    20. A set of shelf dividers that double as hanging storage for towels, scarves, or small accessories.

    Promising review: "This is a great deal. You get 8 dividers and they are so easy to slip on to the shelves in the closet. Great for keeping piles of clothes and towels from falling over or sliding in to each other. They also double as hangers so that is really nice as we were able to use a couple of the extra ones for organizing ties." —JPeli

    Get a pack of eight from Amazon for $27.99.

    21. Finally, a zippered shoe organizer you can use to store your off-season shoes under you bed so they're not just taking up valuable space in your closet.


    Promising review: "This shoe organizer is fantastic! It's a nice quality and sturdy. It's flexible for any shoe yet sturdy enough to be able to hold up being tossed and pulled out from under the bed. This is a great space saver and helps keep my closet organized. I highly recommend!"—June

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in eight- and 12-cell).

    If only Jane had these products to make more room in her bridesmaids dress closet!
