    1. An accordion folder capable of storing up to 200 sheets of paper, so your notes/worksheets/bills/takeout menus can all stick together.


    Promising review: "I bought this folder to keep our family documents organized and in one place. There are just the right amount of tabs for our birth certificates, passports, social security cards, car titles, will, etc. This folder is small enough that you can lock it in a home safe or safety deposit box. I let a couple family members know where I keep this so that they can access it in case of an emergency. It is such a relief knowing that all these things are together and organized. I’m glad I bought this." —Katie Bee

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

    2. A meal planning pad that helps you map out the entire week's meals and then draw up a shopping list that can be torn out. No more asking what everyone wants for dinner or wandering the grocery stores aisles in a confused haze. Just set it all up on Sunday and you're *~GOOD~*.


    Promising review: "I love this meal planner and shopping list! In my house, it was constantly 'what do you want to eat,' 'what do we have,' blah blah, etc. Now, I can lay out the week's meals and get my shopping list prepared so I make sure I don't miss anything at the grocery store. The magnet on the back is strong and holds it to the fridge perfectly, even with the door opening and closing constantly. The perforation is good and doesn't stray off into the paper like some cheaper papers do. Will be buying again when my current one gets low." —Haley

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    3. An over-the-door iron and ironing board holder perfect for your laundry room or basement.


    Promising review: "This worked out well. It fits over the door easily and keeps my iron up out of the way while at the same time keeps it handy. It's held securely rather than sitting on my closet shelf where I have knocked it over onto the floor. I would recommend this product to anyone who likes to be organized without spending a lot of money. 😊👍" —Ellen Schulz

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98.

    4. A fancy tea organizer with pull-out drawers so you can organize your teas and throw away all those space-wasting boxes.


    Promising review: "It allows me to keep track of which tea bags I have and it neatly organizes them. It doesn't take up a lot of room in my cupboard, which is another nice perk." —Judi

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in three colors).

    5. A makeup caddy so you can grab everything you need in one swoop and get into the bathroom before your roommate has a chance to sneak in.


    Promising review: "I have two of these, one is for my favorite makeup products including some pretty large palettes, brushes, and full-size primers. And I use the other one for pens, markers, and sticker books. It’s perfect if you need to either do your make up or write in a different part of the house from where your storage is." —Gooj

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in three colors).

    6. Spice-cradling drawer liners to keep everything in its place, because there's (orega)no way you're gonna put up with bottles rolling all over the place.


    Promising review: "We just moved into a new home, and I needed a way to store spices in a drawer. This product is exactly what I was looking for. It fits beautifully in my drawer, but I love that the strips can be cut for a custom fit. I shopped around for other in-drawer spice organizers, but I would have had to purchase separate jars and transfer the spices. No thanks. This product works with the jars and containers just as they come from the store — no need to purchase special jars. It holds large and small round jars, square containers, and oversized spices. The quality is outstanding. I'm very happy with my purchase!" —EPD611

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $12.99.

    7. A cascading rainbow file organizer sure to make a hue-ge difference with how you organize.


    See our full write-up of this wall file organizer.

    Promising review: "I'm so happy I found this. It's the perfect solution to the bills, reminders, and paperwork that just seem to accumulate and pile up on my kitchen counter. It's not bulky, but it's still very sturdy and the pockets can fit a lot. The bottom clear pocket is the perfect spot to put things you need to be reminded of before running out the door. I love that I can grab the whole thing off the nail and go. I take it to work if I need to pay bills during lunch or call to make appointments, so everything is there at my fingertips. I bought two, and now I have my kitchen counter space back and all my bills and paperwork organized!"—AmazonJunkie

    Get it from Amazon for $12.74+ (available in three colors).

    8. A hanging closet shelf so you can really optimize storage space. Not everyone can be my mom and have literally three dressers in their bedroom.


    Yes, she really has three dressers! I bet she could still use one of these, though.

    Promising review: "Great product. It only took a minute to assemble and hang. I am currently using it for jeans, slacks, shorts, and sweaters. Despite having several garments in the cubbies, I haven't experienced any sag or compromised structural integrity. The six mesh pockets on the sides are great for small items like gloves, beanies, sunglasses, scarves, etc. I am very pleased with the price and quality, I only wish it came in more colors!" —kmsaky

    Get it from Amazon for $13.97 (available in two colors).

    9. A four-layer colored pencil organizer with room for 72 pencils or pens, along with spaces for a sharpener, ruler, and eraser. Your coloring book won't know what hit it.


    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    10. A honeycomb drawer organizer so you can stop rifling blindly through your drawers looking for your lucky pair of socks. Now you'll know they're always in the top right corner, next to your lucky underwear.


    Promising review: "Okay, admittedly, I am a bit of an organization freak. I purchased two of these organizers to organize my underwear drawer. The gratification I got from being able to see exactly what I had, neatly organized, and easy to find — wow. I definitely recommend this product. The actual dividers are well made and super easy to assemble. The number of times you will look at your drawer feeling totally satisfied makes the price well worth it." —Brigette

    Get it from Amazon for $9.59.

    11. A pack of food containers for pro-level meal planning. You can just make a bunch of food in the beginning of the week and separate it into multiple containers for easy to-go meals.,

    These are microwave, dishwasher, and freezer safe!

    Promising review: "These containers have been a life saver for me. I recently am doing the keto diet and prep is a huge part of success, not only for me but my husband as well for packed lunches for work. The size is perfect to fit in lunch boxes and store in ice box isn't too tall making wasted space. I cook and freeze as well and they hold up great. All around this was a great buy! Storage containers are expensive with most not holding up in microwave very long leaving stains; not the case with these at all." —Paula

    Get a 15-pack from Amazon for $13.79 (available in three bulk sizes).

    12. A sweet lil' hedgehog sponge holder so cute, you might get excited to do the dishes. I said MIGHT, ok?????

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $10.

    13. A hanging system to get if you've ever had a broom fall and smack you on the head. This isn't a cartoon — buy this!


    It can hang up to five brooms, mops, rakes, hoes, hockey sticks, or whatever. It also has six hooks for hanging various things like sports equipment, rags, and hats.

    Promising review: "This product is fantastic! It was easy to mount and hanging things is a breeze. My house is very old with no extra closet or pantry space. I needed to clean up the dreaded corner of shovels and a mop. Luckily this product was able to do that, and it also comes with hooks. Since it's hung by my back door in the kitchen, I can also hang my aprons and purse on it. This holder is very sturdy and so are those little hooks. My double zippered purse is heavy, and it holds like a charm. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who's just looking for a sensible storage option." —Shellybeenz

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    14. A pack of jumbo sticky note dividers so you can break up your notebook and keep summary notes for each section. Hellooooo 4.0 GPA.


    Promising review: "These sticky notes are excellent. They come in a booklet, with a clear cover over and a card-like paper with a blue mandala pattern at the back, which is really neat and beautiful. The colors are quite neon and bright and look exactly as the picture shows. The tabs are neat and noticeable at any angle, and are 2.4 cm or about 0.8 inches in length. The paper note itself is 14.8 cm or 5.8 inches in length. They came in neatly and safely packaged, with no dirt or paper creasing in sight." —Malik

    Get a single pack from Amazon for $3.71 (available in packs of 1–12).

    15. A pineapple bathroom cup for a sweet way to hold your razor, toothbrush, or shower brush. Sadly, it's not big enough for a piña colada but c'mon.


    Promising review: "My 2-year-old LOVES the pineapple from TOOLETRIES! It helps make brushing her teeth fun, it's hard for her to pull it off the mirror, and it's easily cleanable! She gets so excited when it's time to get her toothbrush out of her pineapple." —Callie Gudgel

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    16. An over-the-door organizer with 24 pockets so you can really make use of your vertical space.

    Promising review: "I bought two and they are lifesavers! They keep everything tidy. I don't know why I didn't buy these years ago. Super easy, just hang on the back of your closet door and you can quickly scan your shoe library. Very reasonably priced, you can't go wrong." —Corcovado

    Get it from Amazon for $7.97.

    17. A spinning citrus pill organizer to help make remembering to take your pills easy-peasy lemon/pomelo/orange squeezy.


    Promising review: "After using these for about four months now, they're still in great shape and as functional as ever. I even accidentally dropped one right on its side (luckily no pills inside!) and though all the pieces came apart, it was super easy to put it all back together and it's been working fine ever since. It's a plus that they're adorable enough to keep me on track with my daily vitamins!" —Jessie

    18. A drawer organizer ready to transform your messy filing cabinet into something worth showing off to your co-workers. On like, a slow day.


    Promising review: "Love it. What a difference it made to our junk drawer! Before, things were so hard to find and were falling behind the drawer. Now, the same amount of stuff is in there, but we can actually find what we need. Wish I did this earlier. Super configurable." —Alaina

    Get eight bins from Amazon for $14.99.

    19. A pair of plastic bag holders that sure beat just forcing all your bags into one slightly bigger bag.


    Get them from Amazon for $8.99.

    20. Sticky cord holders to prevent the awful feeling of watching your charging just slip away and under the desk.


    Promising review: "If you have devices that need to be charged and you want to keep your cables neat, tidy and in place, you need this product. You could also use your imagination to find other uses! I have purchased two packs of these and used them all! I simply could not imagine life without these cable clips!" —Mike

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $7.79.

    21. Stick-on pen cups for people who don't have desk space for a whole mug or utensil holder.


    More room for all your Troll dolls. :)

    Promising review: "Everyone at work comments on these! Easy to apply and has stayed on so far. I work in an open floorplan with very little space for a lot of personal items. This works perfectly and was inexpensive enough that I have no concerns if something happens to it. Comes packed flat, and must be folded up and the small tabs are inserted into slits. That was not very difficult at all." —Mama S

    Get two from Amazon for $7.98.

    22. A pack of floral file folders to bring some life to your dull office job.


    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $9.95 (available in three different patterns).

    23. An over-the-door holder for all your pans, cutting boards, and other normally homeless cooking items.


    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 — you can 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 $13.97.

    24. A lid organizer that pretty much speaks for itself. I don't need to look in your cabinet to know you need this.


    Promising review: "This does exactly what it says it does. It holds a variety of lid sizes and fits nicely inside the cabinet. It is so nice to be able to find the exact lid you are looking for without having to rummage around inside the cabinet. I would recommend this product." —shelby2289

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    25. A floating kitchen organizer for anyone who wants a more magically looking kitchen. You're not a cook, you're a witch, and this is not a stew, it's a bubbling potion.


    This can be mounted under a cabinet or on a wall. Just don't use it with knives, eek!

    Promising review: "Float makes it easy and fast to grab just the utensil you need when you need it. Say goodbye to jumbled drawers and the overloaded canister next to the stove. A brilliant design." —P. Daniels

    Get it from Amazon for $13.87.

    26. A pack of bungee magnets for organizing cables, hanging keys, marking pages, holding pens, keeping cords together, and pretty much anything else you can think of.


    Promising review: "Really pleased with these. Good quality, easy to use, and makes everything look much cleaner. Will likely be ordering more in the future." —Trevor

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $11.99.

    27. A mouse pad complete with a pen holder, two transparent sheets, card pockets, ruler, and writing pad so everything you need is right in reach.


    The planner part is separated into three categories: weekly plans, things to do, and notes & memo. You can add sticky notes or write with dry erase markers on the plastic sheets.

    Promising review: "I bought this to help me stay on top of my schoolwork, and it is a great tool. I printed a customized sheet with the school week schedule, and I inserted it behind the second plastic layer. I use that plastic layer for writing, and that's protected from being wiped off by the top layer, which is the mousepad surface. I keep my thin expo marker handy in the pen holder on top. Genius product." —oldersister

    Get it from Amazon for $11.88.

    28. A house-shaped wall mount with a basket and key hooks. Where is a good place to keep all the stuff you need before you leave the house? There's no place like home.


    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    29. A pack of hanger hooks to get a cascading hook situation going. More room means more clothes, right?


    Promising review: "I was skeptical, but pleasantly surprised. I am fan of the thin felt hangers for saving closet space and these are a wonderful addition. You can easily add to two to four more hangers so instead of four hangers on the closet rod, you only have one. Literally more than tripled my closet space!"—Sig Girl

    Get a pack of 50 from Amazon for $8.99.

    30. A duo of hanging cloth pockets for seriously whatever you want. All your odds and ends can finally have a home.
