    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've had this for almost six months now and this shelf has held up nicely. I was looking for a plate shelf because I got tired of always having to pull out the smaller plates or bowls off of the dinner plates — this a good investment towards organization and being able to use wasted space." —Evelyn

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a small apartment and the broom closet was always a mess: the brooms would hit me in the face whenever I took the trash out. This holder saved me so much stress! The slots have little rollers that can move to fit just about any size mop or broom, and there are also little hooks that can drop down if you want to hold towels or the dust pan, which is what I use them for. This is a must-have organizational tool!" —Jacqui Nibbelin

    These are great for items that take up way too much space in your closet, but aren't used quite as often.

I was able to organize our endless amounts of blankets, sheets, and comforters that we don't use often, but also don't want to throw away. They were overflowing out of my linen closet and preventing me from using it for more day-to-day items, like cleaning supplies and towels." —Jess

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 $14.99.
