    1. A Y-weave medium rectangle bin to keep books, papers, beauty products, and the like organized. The 5-inch by 12-inch basket is great for organizing within closets and on shelves, but can also work as a catch-all on top of your microwave or entertainment center.

    Promising review: "These bins are sturdy and cute. They're perfect for any room in the house." –Target reviewer

    Price: $6 (available in five colors)

    2. A 66-quart Sterilite bin that's big enough to store an ample amount of books, shoes, sweaters, or whatever you're looking to pack away. The clear design is great for moving and storing as it lets you easily see what's in the box so you don't have to go digging when you're looking for something specific.

    3. A three-tier wire shelf perfect for keeping your laundry room, kitchen, or garage organized, or to add a more urban touch to any other room of your house. The 30-inch high shelf is a Target shopper fave, so beware that it sells out often but restocks regularly.

    Promising review: "This is exactly what I needed for a little space organization. Follow the instructions and you are good to go!" –Target reviewer

    Price: $25 (available in two colors).

    4. A set of round canisters that make storing dry goods more aesthetically pleasing. Each canister features a pop-top to keep the container airtight so that food stays as fresh as possible in your pantry. As an OXO devotee, I personally love how they look when filled with different types of pasta.

    6. A dual-compartment trash can that makes keeping your trash and recycling organized easier and more space-conscious than ever. In addition to storing everything in one stylized can, it also features a place for trash bags, so it's just about as organized as trash can get.


    Ever since I got my first Simplehuman trash cans — one for recycling and one for trash — I've been in love with the scent-proof design and sleek stainless exterior. So, when the dual-compartment can came out, I just had to have it. Trust me, I know it's pricey, but it's a great space-saver that still has plenty of room for a week's worth of trash and recycling. Investing in being able to do a little extra good for the planet? I'll take it.

    7. A metal garment and accessories rack to lay out your entire outfit for the next day. Standing nearly 5 feet tall, this rack is great for hanging dresses, coats, and suits, and is especially useful since it has fold-out arms and rungs to drape pants and purses alike.

    Price: $69.99 (available in two colors).

    10. An eight-tier over-the-door rack for organizing spices, pantry items, beauty products, and more. The rack is 77-inches tall and can hold up to 20 pounds worth of goods.


    Promising review: "This is a great option for increasing storage by using the empty space behind doors, especially in an apartment. I bought two and they were quick and easy to put up. Keep in mind that although it hangs over the door on hooks, it needs to be screwed in so it’s tight against the door so items don’t fall out the back. I chose to only use two screws each at the midpoint to decrease holes in the door and it’s nice and sturdy. I would purchase again!" –Target reviewer

    Price: $36.99

    11. A 6-quart plastic box that is the perfect size to store pairs of shoes, beauty products, an at-home medical kit, and more—take it from someone who is moving and is using them exactly as such. The sturdy bins have snap-on lids, so you don't have to worry about them tipping over and spilling.

    Price: $16.99

    A bamboo organizer up to seven spaces for storage

    Promising review: "I've had this for a few months now, it looks great, holds a lot and I really like it. Our drawer has never been so organized! I gave it 4 stars because my only itty bitty complaint is that I wish there were some way to lock the expansion part in place where you want it because it frequently closes a bit. Aside from that, I highly recommend it!" –Target reviewer

    Price: $21.99

    17. A riser shelf to double the space in your kitchen cupboards, pantry, linen closet, and more. Standing 6 inches tall, the slotted shelf adds a second layer of storage on any shelf, so that if you're storing short items, space doesn't go to waste.


    Promising review: "I like it. The material is not plastic but it's nicely coated. It's iron. It fits perfectly in my kitchen cupboard. Finally, I have order in there." –Target reviewer

When closed, it's just over 14 inches wide; when expanded, it's nearly 24 inches, meaning it provides lots of space in whatever cabinet you place it in.

    A white riser that looks like three steps with gray tops holding jars

    Promising review: "I brought these to organize cans in my pantry. I am now able to see all the cans that I have. This was the perfect buy! They fit great and look great, so much so that I ordered one more." –Target reviewer

    Price: $13

    22. A two-tier organizer with dividers to keep your bathroom counter and under the sink as organized as possible. Best of all, you don't have to remove the device every time you want to reach for something, as they're actually pull-out drawers.

    Two small pull-out, plastic drawers that say "skin care" and "towels" on them

    Promising review: "I recently moved from an apartment that two drawers in the bathroom vanity to one that only had the cabinet. I bought two of these and they saved me! I'm able to keep all my stuff and it's more organized than before, those dividers really help!" –Target reviewer

    A metal three-bar, towel rack with hooks

    Promising review: "I also had difficulty closing my door with this rack. I then discovered that the black pads under the over-the-door hooks are removable, and voila! The door now closes with no problem at all. The black pads seem to have been added to protect from scratching the door, but I have no fears that the smooth hooks will scratch. I love that the width is expandable to beyond the width of a typical bath towel." –Target reviewer

    Price: $25.99

    24. A bathroom shower caddy to keep your bath goods organized. It features two shelves, as well as a soap dish and two rungs to hang washcloths or loofahs on.

    A metal shower caddy with two shelves, hooks, and a soap dish

    Promising review: "I was skeptical at first because so many people said it slid off the showerhead (which it did for me as well). But I loved how much storage it had. So, I took a long twist tie (like the ones you get from your produce and don't know what to do with), and secured the top of the caddy to the showerhead. This remedied the problem. And it was able to be neatly tucked behind the rubber piece that is at the top of the caddy- so it didn't look like a desperate rig up. The storage space is great, and now that it is not sliding down, I love it." –Target reviewer

    Price: $16 (available in four colors).

    25. A woven knotted storage basket that will add a little boho flair to whatever room you put it in. Best of all, since it's made with a cotton-dominant blend, it's a great candidate to tie-dye, so you can customize it to your room!

    Promising review: "This basket is so cute and sturdy. I used it as a card basket for my sister's baby shower and it was perfect! She was happy to find out she gets to keep it for the nursery." –Target reviewer

    Price: $9.99

    26. A two-roll freestanding toilet paper holder for anyone weary of drilling a roll holder into the wall. This one fits nicely over the top of your toilet tank and keeps paper within hands reach.

    A metal toilet roll holder that hangs from the toilet

    Promising review: "I needed something that didn't require hardware and that kept the toilet paper out of the way in a smallish bathroom. This does the job. My left-handed daughter would probably prefer it to be on the right side of the tank instead of the left, but that's the way it is in a small bathroom. I like that I can hang two rolls, so that there is less chance that someone runs out. It's kind of utilitarian in appearance, but I happen to like that look." –Target

    Price: $11.99

    27. An over-the-door rack to hold not one, not two, not three, but six towels, jackets, purses, or whatever else you're hoping to hang. The sturdy contraption can hold up to 20 pounds worth of hanging products.

    A metal door rack with six hooks

    Price: $14.99

    28. A hanging storage organizer that will make the most of your closet from the rack all the way down to the floor. Fill it with shoes, sweaters, jeans, hats—whatever your heart desires.

    Promising review: "This is a great product. It's sturdy and it looks good. It helped me organize my closet so perfectly that I bought two!" –Target reviewer

    Price: $10

    29. A rainbow coiled-rope basket to add a little color to whatever room you're hoping to organize. The colorful construction might be made of rope, but it's sturdy enough to hold lots of toys, crafts, workout gear, books, or whatever you're looking to toss in.

    A white rope basket with rainbow-colored stripes

    Promising review: "I love things to be organized and this large coiled rope bin works great. It's great for storage in any room of your house or office. It's very functional and very cute colors/patterns. The handles are just the top two loops of the rope basket, though — I would have preferred them to be more as I'm not sure how this will hold up over time." –Target reviewer

    Price: $9.99

    30. A rolling under-bed box that will help you make the most of all the space in your room. Standing just 7 inches tall, you might not think it will hold much, but trust assured, you'll be surprised. And, if you have a taller bed or walk-in closet, you'll be glad to know they're stackable!

    A long, low plastic box with purple wheels and handles on the lid

    Promising review: "These are exactly what I was looking for without spending a fortune. I'm using it for under-bed storage for shoes and seasonal clothing. I might buy a fourth one (we have a king-size bed)." –Target reviewer

    Price: $16.99

    31. A polka-dotted hanging organizer for folks who like to vertically organize. This wall hanger features three pockets and can hold books, puzzles, craft materials, and more.
