    Jerrybox / Amazon / Via, hami0314 / Amazon User / Via

    Promising review: "I'm so glad I bought this. Assembling this was pretty easy because the instructions are right there in the box. I was able to organize my cosmetics and perfume so they now look neat and tidy. You can adjust the height of the shelves to fit your needs so that's a big plus. It's a space saver too." —mati

    Tospania / Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "I don't know how many charging cables I've worn out. I saw this and decided to try it. I love it! This will prolong the life of your cable. It was a little tricky getting it on with the first twirls but once I got the hang of it, I had no problem. It actually was relaxing, and if you want a breather to meditate, doing this will give you that break. I'm thinking of buying more even though I don't have any more cords to wrap, lol! Go ahead and get this!" —kayjee

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in 15 characters).

    4. A tea bag organizer for showing off your amazing tea selection.

    YouCopia / Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "This is just what we needed! I love tea and have boxes all piled up and sometimes when folks come over I don't know what I have to offer. Now that's all changed! I threw away about five boxes, so well over 100 tea bags fit in the containers. I love that the containers pop out so you can rearrange your options." —frugalgirl

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    5. A dateless weekly planner to organize your life in the cutest way possible.

    Twone / Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "I've tried out many different styles of planners throughout my life, from simple to elaborate. Somehow I always end up going back to using this one. It's a simple layout with plenty of room for notes, and it's not dated so you have a lot of freedom. It's sturdy with hard backing so I can write with it on my lap. It's small enough to fit in my purse, and you get a good amount of pages for the price. I know it's cutesy and meant for children, but I use it as an adult with a busy schedule and it works great." —Bri

    Get it from Amazon for $5.48 (available in six different animals).

    Promising review: "I bought this for my wife to hold her gel pens for her coloring books. This little case holds them neatly without taking up space and falling all over the place. I was surprised that such a small case could hold so many pens. The wife liked it so much I ended up buying her two more, one in pink and one in black, to hold her colored pencils and a second set of pens." —Gene S.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available in two colors).

    8. An animal-shaped letter holder that looks cool enough that you might actually buy something as boring as a letter holder.

    Kikkerland / Amazon / Via, Kikkerland / Wayfair / Via

    Promising review: "This holder is super cute and unique. I use it on my desk at work, and it easily holds several folders and notebooks. I've currently got it holding five folders that are well packed with papers. It's very stable, and I haven't tried to mount it to a wall (but it does come with wall attachments). It makes me smile every time I look over at it." —Sacagawea Mariposa

    Get it from Amazon for $20+ or Wayfair for $21.99.

    9. A grassy organizer for a pen holder more interesting than a standard mug.

    Umbra / Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this for my toothbrushes. It's so easy to use this: You just stick anything anywhere in it! If your toothbrush has a thick handle that doesn't fit in conventional holders, don't worry, it will fit in this just fine. You can even put the whole tube of toothpaste in this if you want. I think I may buy another for my makeup brushes." —Tara K.

    Urban Outfitters / Via

The trays are easy to wipe clean and can be removed if you need to transport a collection of say, fasteners or shoe cleaning supplies, to another room in the house. Also, the cart is pretty sturdy. We have a small printer on the top of ours." —GRC+JEC

    Tech Tools / Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "I love this thing! It's so cute and fits perfectly on my desk. I removed the stoppers so I can take the drawers out of the cabinet. It's easier to find what I'm looking for by removing the drawer completely. I know I'll have this for years as my business card collection grows. In the meantime I'm using the bottom drawer to store rubber bands." —Kristy Mone'
