    1. Cable clips so you can keep all the wires for your electronic devices organized and untangled. These small clips have an adhesive back so they can stick to any surface so they'll stay put.


    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

    2. A drawer organizer that will make the impossible possible — finding a pair of socks without ransacking your dresser drawers. Oh, the joys of being able to pull out a matching pair of undergarments and basics in under 10 seconds.

    Reviewer draw with draw organizer inside

    It comes with four bins: a six-cell (for scarves/ties), an eight-cell (for underwear, etc.) a seven-cell (for bras), and a 24-cell (for socks).

    Promising review: "No matter how neatly I fold my bras and underwear, they always seem to become a big jumble in the drawer. These organizers are perfect for keeping everything in place, and you won't forget about those items you own that end up buried at the back." —M. Hanson

    Get the set of four from Amazon for $15.97 (available in six colors).

    3. Boot shaper inserts to make your knee-highs stand at attention instead of slouching over and taking up more space. Now, you'll have an excuse to purchase more shoes since you've got all that extra room.

    They're also customizable for ankle, calf, and knee-high boots with guides to trim them to the right height.

    Promising review: "These are simple shapes of die-cut black plastic that you bend and insert into boots to keep them upright. The plastic has enough springiness that they expand to the width of the boot, and also a slight ribbing on one side (the side you put facing the boots) so they don't slip." —PK

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $12.50 (available in two and four pairs)

    4. A desktop organizer so you can finally keep your pens, supplies, notebooks, and books in order instead of having them sprawled across your work area. It's compact so it'll fit on smaller desks but it can hold quite a lot.

    Promising review: "I’m very happy with this purchase. It looks very 'finished' and good quality. It took me 20 minutes to assemble it, and the directions were very easy to follow." —Danielle

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in five colors).

    5. Interlocking drawer bins because right now, every drawer looks like a junk drawer. Keep all of your items organized and toss what you don't need — like your assortment of fast food condiments and duck sauce packets that you'll never use.

    Promising review: "This set has been perfect for my desk at work. The clutter in my drawer was so annoying to sift through before I found the right pen or paperclip. Now everything is easy to find and well organized. Nice to be able to customize arrangement as well. I may purchase more of these for cluttered drawers at home." —ccc_wood

    Get the set of eight from Amazon for $10.96.

    6. Clear storage boxes with lids to keep your shoe collection from collecting dust. These are stackable and free up some much needed closet space for all your other items.

    Reviewer closet with storage bins inside

    Promising review: "Just what we needed. Didn't exactly need a dozen, but I figured once I started organizing that I'd find things that needed boxes. Sure enough, that's exactly what happened. I ended up using half of these right away and still have a few left over. They're just the perfect size for shoes, crafts, tools, and parts. I love to stack them under shelves where I can just pull out the whole box and then look through it." —Amazon Customer

    Get the set of six from Amazon for $36.99 (also available in packs of 10 and 12 and in three sizes).

    7. A two-for-one over the door mirror and jewelry organizer so that you can remove that huge, expensive vanity from your cart. This will allow you to store as many accessories as your heart desires and allows you to get a full glimpse of your ensemble without taking up more space.


    This organizer can hang over the door or on a wall. It even has battery-powered LED lights inside to help you see all your jewelry and a lock to keep everything safe.

    Promising review: "There is much room in this very organized cabinet. It had loads of earring space, necklace space, and the shelves are nice for miscellaneous items like sunglasses, watches, pins, etc. It has two little drawers for miscellaneous items and a pouch under the right side necklace rack. It has several different heights you can hang it at if you are using the over the door mount. The LED lights are awesome and illuminate really well. It came well wrapped up in plastic and inside a styrofoam box and not a scratch was on it. I LOVE this and highly recommend." —CindiL

    Get it from Amazon for $122.99+ (available in three colors).

    8. A rotating makeup organizer so you don't cram all your beauty products on your bathroom counter — if, unlike *moi*, you're blessed enough to have a bathroom counter. Keep them in this storage caddy to avoid knocking them over into the sink or on the floor.

    Reviewer making organizer with products inside

    Promising review: "This organizer is phenomenal! Why I didn't purchase one way before, I don't know. I assembled it in less than five minutes and now our bathroom counter is organized and not cluttered anymore! Not only good for makeup/skincare products but can be used as a kitchen/office/jewelry organizer and so much more! You WILL NOT be disappointed with this amazing product!" —Negar

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in three colors).

    9. A 30-bottle spice organizer that is definitely a two-in-one space saving decor item. If limited counter space and cabinets are an issue for your traditional spice rack, add these to cart and that problem will go poof.


    This item also comes with pre-printed spice labels and some blank ones for you to fill in yourself.

    Promising review: "This far exceeds expectations. It held larger jars than I expected it to. The rack stays perfectly level when you pull out one drawer. I have it in a shelf above the stove and I am able to see all of the spices when the racks are pulled out in their angled position without having to stand on a chair. All of the labels were perfect. I only had to hand write a couple that weren't pre-printed with the rack." —2tall

    Get it from Amazon for $47.99 (also available in granite and in two styles).

    10. A two-for-one toy chest and bean bag chair because your child's room was starting to look like FAO Schwarz if a tornado hit it. Don't pack it into an overcrowded closet, just add this to cart.

    Reviewer bean bag with stuffed toys inside

    Promising review: "My daughter has over 40 stuffed animals and this thing holds ALL of them! It keeps everything off of the floor and I even stuffed a heavy comforter in there to free up drawer space. I packed this thing and haven't had any issues with the zipper at all." —Chelsea

    Get it from Amazon for $29.97 (available in three colors).

    11. A nail polish organizer that can fit all your home mani-pedi items inside. It fits 48 standard bottles so you can buy more than two at a time, which means limited space will no longer affect your shade range.

    Promising review: "I hate clutter. I am so happy with this! It does have adjustable sides, so I use those for clippers, cuticle tools, files, etc. I am able to fit China Glaze, OPI, ILNP, Sally Hansen, Seche, Kiko, etc. in the slots. It's important to note that NOT ALL slots are adjustable. However, they are wide and tall enough for a wide range of polishes. There are 48 slots, so I took this as an opportunity to purge the polishes that were either old or that I no longer wore." —eller

    Get it from Amazon for $27.89 (also available in pink).

    12. A coat and shoe rack because your closet space is so limited despite you paying an arm and a leg for rent. Just add this to cart and remember what your realtor told you about "location, location, location."

    Coat and shoe rack in room

    KleiderEisen is a small business founded in Bielefeld, Germany by two friends, Fabienne and Daniel, in 2019. The duo specializes in handmade clothing racks.

    Promising review: "I love it! It is the perfect size, excellent quality, the shipping was as eco friendly as it could possibly be and the instructions clear. Most importantly these guys are lovely to talk to." —Lutzi

    Get it from KleiderEisen on Etsy for $182.49.

    13. An overhead storage rack to solve all of your problems if your up to your neck in knick-knacks. This'll turn your ceiling into a closet so that you can pop bins, luggage, or any other item up there.

    Promising review: "This is everything I hoped it would be and more. Install was fairly straightforward and it works great. I do think that it could be difficult to install for a person that is not very savvy or experienced with tools and building, and if that is you, I would recommend getting a helping hand. Ensure that the unit is installed safely; the last thing you want is for it to come crashing down on your vehicle or family member. I was able to install everything within a couple of hours by myself. One tip: I highly recommend having either a ratchet (more work) or preferably, a nut driver set so that you can tighten everything down with your impact driver/drill gun. My garage is starting to feel a lot more spacious and I'm really glad that we purchased this, and I would not hesitate to buy it again. Totally worth it!" —Curt and Lindsay Lewis

    Get it from Amazon for $179.99 (available in three colors and in two-packs).

    14. A hanging cotton canvas hamper that is a major space-saver. Plus it looks so chic, you'll be tempted to snap a picture and air your ~dirty laundry~ on Instagram.

    White canvas hamper hanging from bathroom door

    Promising review: "I bought this a couple of months ago to use in place of a laundry hamper in our tiny apartment and so far I'm very pleased. The construction is very sturdy; it holds a lot of laundry both in terms of weight and volume. I also like that the handle is flexible; you can hang it on a clothes rod in a closet or on a door hook or handle. It doesn't take up a ton of space, either." —Robin

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (available in two colors).

    15. A chic wall-mounted towel rack for saving major space in your bathroom and making even the most affordable towels look fancy.,

    Promising review: "Anyone with a small bathroom knows that free space is almost non-existent, and these have been so great. We bought two so we had one for each bathroom, and we were able to get the majority of our towels up on them and looking nice (which means we freed up space in the linen closet)!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $23.97 (also available in a two-pack).

    16. A rose gold desk organizer with multiple compartments for all of your essential office supplies. The chic design keeps all your supplies nice and neat, plus it spruces up your space with a dash of color.

    Rose gold desk organizer on desk

    Promising review: "This product is worth it! I love it. Sturdy and well put together. Working from home can get a little hectic but this keeps my desk area very neat and organized. It’s a nice rose gold color that matches with everything else in my desk set. I highly recommend especially for my fellow remote working people." —Darrius Gamble

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97 (available in two colors).

    17. A three-tier bamboo shelf rack featuring a sleek design that doubles as storage and decor. It is perfect for small bathrooms because you can stuff rolls of toilet paper, plants, electronics, and/or beauty items on top, plus can be mounted to the wall if you have limited floor space.


    Promising review: "This is a great shelf for the bathroom. I wanted something slim and really liked the wooden slats. It is really sturdy and simple to put together." —Daniel Lowe

    Get it from Amazon for $28.70+ (available in three colors).

    18. A magazine rack that'll give your bathroom the classic Mad Men aesthetic. Keep all your papers, newspapers, and magazines neatly organized and easily accessible in style so you can read them while you're ~doing your business.~

    Photo of magazine holder on floor in room

    Promising Review: "Excellent, simple, chic. This magazine holder definitely adds a chic modern touch to a room with being so simple. It could be used anywhere and fit in perfectly. It holds a good amount of magazines and because of the design of the holder, the magazines sit on both sides without touching each other. I love this holder and love how it looks in my house. It is lightweight yet durable. It is perfect and I definitely recommend purchasing." —Mindy

    Get it from Amazon for $19.81.

    19. A 10-pack of Wonder Hangers because shopping in Soho left you with enough outfit changes to fit into a three minute TikTok video — but definitely not your tiny closet. One hanger can hold five garments, plus the handle can lay vertically which gives you even more space.


    Promising review: "My family of three (teenage child and adult child) squeeze into a 820 square feet, two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment. Closet space is high value real estate for us. The Wonder Hanger Max has definitely maximized our closet space." —Whovian

    Get it 10-pack from Amazon for $14.99.

    20. An under cabinet wine glass rack to save space in your cupboards and keep them organized. The installation process is quick and easy — just mount the rack to the bottom of your cabinet with the included supplies. Plus, it will make your kitchen look like a fancy Italian winery.

    Reviewer wine racks in use in kitchen

    Promising review: "We have really loved this wine rack. We’ve bought three! Created a bar out of an old entertainment center. The coloring was a perfect dark iron. Each row holds three champagne flutes or two wine glasses. Each rack has four rows. The wine racks were easy to install with short screws and the dimensions were spot on. Would highly recommend!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $24.91+ (available in four colors).

    21. A velvet storage ottoman that will give you extra storage and help you save so much space. It also has a removable lid big enough to comfortably lay your feet on top and fit snacks, a remote, and a blanket inside — aka all the Netflix binge session staples.,

    Promising review: "I use this as my seat at my home work station in my small apartment and I love it! It's firm, and the perfect height. I love the light gray color and the fabric feels like velvet. For $53, you can't beat this deal." —Hayley Eiden

    Get it from Amazon for $79.50 (available in twelve colors).

    22. A large woven storage basket because unlike when you throw everything into your closet, when you stuff everything in these things and call it "cleaning" it'll actually look chic.

    Photo of basket on floor in home

    Promising Review: "Love this basket. I was looking at the $130 Room and Board version and am so glad I found this one. It is high quality and looks expensive." —Jennifer Barnes

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99.

    23. A three-tier rolling organizer cart which can be used to store kitchen items if your apartment came sans pantry closet.... or your beauty items if your tiny bathroom just won't fit them. Best of all? You can lug this around hardwood floors or carpets with ease if it needs to be moved around.,

    Promising review: "I got this cart to have some extra beauty storage in my tiny apartment. I wanted to be able to wheel out the cart from my closet and easily put it back. This cart was easy to assemble (had to push down hard on the shelves to get them on but other than that it was easy). It is sturdy. Most importantly, I have fairly thick carpet and wasn't sure how well the wheels would do on the carpet. To my pleasant surprise, the wheels are fairly large and move smoothly over the carpet. I am happy with this product." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in five colors).

    24. A handmade beech wood floating bedside drawer that's a bit bigger than a shoebox and can only be described as magic for small bedrooms. The futuristic piece of decor can hold your lamp, glasses, beauty items, and plants on top, plus you can store a ton of items inside.

    25. An outlet shelf so you can save space, keep your electronics charging without putting them on the the floor/table, and add decor (think succulents). There's also a little compartment inside the shelf to store unsightly wires!,

    Promising review: "Wow. I was skeptical at first because there were no pics of the Echo, just the Dot. I’m so glad I purchased this. Not only did it free up counter space, it actually looks good. I will say though, I had to use the lower plug because there wasn’t enough headroom to use the top. I banded the cord and it fit perfectly inside the cable channel for a clean look. I’d definitely recommend!" —Jill in Houston

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in two colors).

    26. A hanger stacker so you can finally pick up the tangled ones sprawled across your closet floor. This will prevent them from getting damaged when not in use.

    Get it from Amazon for $18.56+ (also available in multipacks).

    27. A large marble tray to store your favorite accessories!

    Reviewer shoes, electronics, pantry items, and cleaning supplies in hanging door organizer / / /

    Promising review: "I bought this to use in my daughter's closet for her hair bows. It works perfectly! Prior to this we had them all in a bin that I was constantly digging through. My husband even agrees that this new method is great. The clips fit over the door perfectly and it doesn't swing around when we open and shut the door (which is a favorite game for our 15-month-old). I'm able to fit up to 15 bows in each slot and sorted them by color to make it easier." —Michelle

    Get it from Amazon for $9.87.

    29. Wooden accent knobs so you can finally have a place to hang your collection of handbags. These beautiful pieces will trick guests into thinking they're just part of the decor.

I immediately went searching and was so pleased to find Candice. Lovely attention to detail, solid design, arrived much quicker than expected, and was so simple to hang. You nailed it, Candice! Big seal of approval from me. Thank you for being a designer for other designers!" —Kathryn Way

    Get it from Shop Candice Luter on Etsy for $50.

    30. Vacuum storage bags that'll temporarily shrink your clothes to give you more storage space. Your winter wardrobe and bedding will be small enough to fit into a Jacquemus mini purse.

    Reviewer closet before and after using vacuum storage bags

    Promising review: "This is a supreme product. The bags are made of thick, quality plastic. It is very easy to seal and to vacuum. I placed a dryer sheet in each sealed bag to keep the clothes smelling fresh. My closet looks so well organized, I have much more room and my winter clothes are stored safely and beautifully. I highly recommend this product." —AA

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in four sizes).

    31. An armrest organizer because storing your remote on the sofa just results in it getting lost in the deep, dark crevice of your couch again. Your electronics will always be safely and securely available in this pouch, ready for you to re-watch The Office for the 1,000th time.,

    Promising review: "I bought this for the sole purpose of keeping all our remotes in one place. (Let's face it; has a universal remote EVER worked?) So, we now have the remotes each in their own pocket and can grab the one we want right away. Nothing gets lost, the table doesn't get scratched from tossing the remote on the table, and due to the color you barely notice it's over the arm of the couch. This is well made of sturdy fabric, and long enough to tuck under the couch cushion." —Kathy

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99.

    32. Shoe Slotz that allow you to stack your footwear on top of each other without transferring dirt from one to the other. Plus, they won't crease and have a bottom piece so the side that touches the street won't touch your floor.

    Shelves before and after using shoe slotz

    Promising review: "I will spare you the horrific 'before' picture of the complete nightmare that was my closet floor. Just imagine a dusty mess with shoes thrown all over each other in a sad attempt at giving some appearance of order, and you will have a good idea of why buying this shoe organizer was one of the best ideas I've had this year. The floor now looks so neat and tidy I can't believe my eyes every time I open my closet doors."Veronica, just an average reader, you know?
