    1. An interlocking drawer organizer that'd leave Marie Kondo scrambling for a new catchphrase — "joy" doesn't begin to describe what this tidy setup will spark in you.

    Promising review: "So I bought a lot of these!! They are awesome, they interlock and allow for different combination of sizes and layouts. My drawers are finally organized, my OCD mind is at ease, and I can sleep better knowing that my toothbrush is not touching the cotton swab dispenser. Seriously though, the sizes available in this package seem to fit most things, like a toothbrush, external hard drives, screws, and dog combs." —Leo Light

    2. A trash bag holder you'll probably like better than the mountain of plastic accumulating inside your cabinets.

    Promising review: "The garbage container is the most useful kitchen trash bag holder rack I have purchased. I don't have much garbage because I recycle and compost. The things that do go into the garbage are enough to fill a plastic grocery bag." —Master Gunny

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    3. An under-bed storage bag so you can keep your off-season clothes out of sight and make room for the stuff you need.

    Storage bag with clothes under bed

    Promising review: "I bought this because I really needed some place to put the extra junk I had cluttering my room. It came with two large storage bags. The bags have nothing to hold them up, they'll just fold right into themselves. They are very roomy and can hold up a lot. And they're small enough that they just slide right under the bed. Perfect if you have a low bed. I would definitely recommend them." —Lmon95

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $16.95+ (available in square and underbed).

    4. An outlet shelf to give your bathroom products a new home.

    Promising review: "I have been looking for a small shelf for my bathroom to put my mini speaker on, and this is the BEST! The size is perfect; I love it." —Kimberly MacNeill

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99 (available in three colors).

    5. A cap holder if you want to flex a bit with your collection (and declutter in the process).

    Hats hanging on closet door

    You can also use them to organize other kinds of hats and even bags and purses!

    Promising review: "This clears up half the mess in my closet. I should have ordered two. It fits well on a pair of bi-fold doors and makes things neater and the hats easier to get to." —Lee

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    6. A water-resistant holder with a strip for your razors, toothpaste, and all the other items that end up in a pile inside your cupboards.

    Toothbrushes in holders attached to cabinet door

    Promising review: "I LOVE THIS! I have a tiled walk-in shower, and I didn't like my razors just lying on the cubby shelf. This product holds my two razors perfectly (two is really all you're going to be able to keep in there). It has a small hole in the bottom so the water drains perfectly." —Amazon Addict Here :)

    Get it from Amazon for $6.28.

    7. A hanging organizer tray if you feel like storage units never offer a great spot to store your wallets and handbags.

    Clear hanging organizer tray holding handbags

    Promising review: "Sooo many uses for this great hanging shelf. I use mine to store vitamin bottles, medicine, and other things that I never had a home for until now! Good clearance between existing shelf and this one." —Everydayme

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    8. A hanger stacker for when you realize, "hmm, maybe ignoring the massive pile in my closet isn't the best storage solution??"

    Promising review: "I grew tired of throwing my empty hangers into a pile in my closet. They would get all tangled up and really frustrated the heck out of me every time I had to put away clothes! This hanger stacker seemed like an easy solution and boy, was I right! It assembles really easily (just two screws and an Allen wrench) and it is good at keeping my hangers organized. Buy one — you won't regret it!" —Bubbles456

    Get it from Amazon for $18.48.

    9. A collapsible storage bin, if you've bin there done that with clunky storage containers.

    Get it from MoMA Design Store for $10+ (available in three sizes and nine colors).

    10. A set of origami animals for holding your precious jewelry.

    Origami animals holding jewelry

    Promising review: "Cute set, and perfect gift for someone newly engaged. I've got one by my bed, one on the counter in the bathroom and one on the windowsill in the kitchen, so all the spots I am likely to remove my ring are covered!" —LeslieRVA

    Get them from Target for $19.99 (for three).

    11. A washer-friendly sock organization system (equipped with clips and locks), because your least favorite part of doing laundry — hands down — is scavenging for lost mates.

    Model holding socks attached to rod

    Promising review: "If you're tired of sorting and pairing socks, then you need this product. I ordered a set for me (one for clean socks and one for dirty socks). The socks stayed secured in and out of the wash cycle and dried well. Great idea for each family member, travelers, and kids going off to college. Can be used for more than just socks. Think scarves, gloves, etc." —valueval

    Get it from Amazon for $16 (available in pink, red, blue, and dark blue).

    12. A multi-slotted battery organizer so you don't have to dig through a junk drawer and unearth three stray Tylenols, a nickel, and a crumpled CVS receipt before finding your stash.

    Batteries organized on wall-mounted white shell

    Promising review: "We have forever kept spare batteries in sandwich bags in a kitchen junk drawer for quick convenience. The bags would always come open and scatter batteries or tear. 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 $14.89.

    13. A set of magnetic spice jar dispensers, so you'll never have to ask where the salt went ever again.

    A set of magnetic spice jars attached to fridge

    Promising review: "Finally!!! We searched for a long time for spice jars that would hold a nice amount of spices. These are perfect! With a pour or sprinkle option, window to see the spice level, strong magnet, and space-saving square shape! We planned to just put our 'popular' spices in them but we love them so much we are buying another set so we can have all our spices organized!!" —JT

    Get it from Amazon for $11.95+ (available in sets of 6, 12, and 24).

    14. A set of spice-gripper clips to take advantage of the backside of your door.

    Spices mounted on backside of pantry door

    Promising review: "OMG, I love these things! Such a simple idea; how did I ever live without them? They added a lot more room, and they’re great for my OCD(ish) tendencies. They hold all different circumferences of spice bottles. If some spices are too big to place all in the same connected row, you can cut off a tab and separate them. It doesn’t really affect the items on the shelves; you just have to push them back a little (maybe half an inch or so), so the spices have clearance when the door is shut." —Bridget D.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.97 (for six strips).

    15. A four-part drawer organizer, because half the battle of getting out the door every morning is finding your other sock.

    Four-part drawer organizer with bras and socks folded inside

    Promising review: "I LOVE LOVE LOVE these organizers!! At just $13 for four organizers I took my chances and ordered two sets of four. I figured, worst-case scenario I would have to cut the dividers out of the bra organizers. I am guessing if you wear a 36 band size or above that the organizer may be too narrow to fit the bra. However I believe you could fold in the extra band and fit them in. I had no problem fitting DD cups into these. I wear a 32DD and the bras fit beautifully in the organizers. I ordered another set for tank tops and other extras I did not think of before. Great product for a great price!" —Elizabeth L Blackwell

    Get it from Amazon $14.97 (available in six colors).

    16. A shower caddy with hooks and shelves galore if you've never had an actual place to store your razor or body wash.

    Shower caddy

    Promising review: "Good sturdy frame. Has not rusted and the bronze color is really nice. Fits a lot of things and the hooks are handy. Has not budged out of place once." —NB264

    Get it from Target for $16 (available in three colorways).

    17. Or, a shower curtain liner with pockets, because who are you kidding? Every inch of storage space matters in your tiny-ass bathroom.

    Shower curtain liner with pockets

    Promising review: "This is the perfect solution for my tub/shower situation. We have no shelving, and showerhead racks tend to get rusty/caked with soap and have even fallen off. We've had this in the shower for three months now and it's great. It holds all our bottles, razors, and bars of soap." —Rachel B

    Get it from Amazon for $15.

    18. A wire clip collage that'll turn your Polaroids and stubs into a piece of passable art.

    Get it from Target for $20.

    19. A hanging three-tiered drying surface if messing with hardware is a hard no.

    Three-tiered drying surface with sweater and shirt on top

    Promising review: "I have had one of these for about a year and I love it so much and use it so often that I bought a second one. This is wonderful for hanging sweaters, undergarments, special clothing that cannot be dried, etc. In a family of four, we almost always have all six layers filled (we have two pieces at three layers each)." —Janet K Johnston

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

    20. A special organization system for your keys (and mail) if you've vowed to stop getting locked out of your apartment all the time in the new year.

    White mounted organization system with mail in it and keys dangling on hooks

    Promising review: "Really good design and the price is right! I’ve been looking everywhere for a simple mail holder that had a somewhat thin profile and one that could mount to the wall (or in my case, a wooden panel)." —Brian

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

    Promising review: "My medicine cabinet looks so neat with these organizers! The quality of plastic is good; the compartment size is convenient. I bought a few different sizes and found use for all of them. Highly recommended." —ZK

    25. And a toothbrush caddy that'll finally help you keep your brushes straight.

    Toothbrush caddy

    Promising review: "My wife and I have been using this for a few months and really like it. It's the perfect size for two brushes and one tube of paste. The base color matches our walls and it's easy to wipe clean when needed." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in two sizes).
