    Everything in its right place.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. An over-the-door organizer, so you can see exactly what you're working with (while saving a significant amount of space).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Great for organizing the pantry, craft rooms, and bathrooms. Finally have a way to keep all the junk off my counters. Pockets are huge, hooks leave a low profile (so no issue with scratching), and seems very sturdy for holding all my junk so far (it's mostly holding way too many hair products in my bathroom at the moment). Love that this is clear so you can see everything." —Breanna

    Get it from Amazon for $14.87 (for a two-pack)

    2. A "Spicy Shelf" for easily identifying that, yes, you do in fact already have the oregano you were planning to season that chicken breast with.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I finally got tired of searching for the right spices and began searching for a solution. My spices are in a 16-inch-wide upper cabinet next to my stove. I love a particular brand of spice and will buy containers and refill bags to refill the bottle. My cabinet was overflowing. With this I was able to fit all my spices on the racks along with things in the middle and on the bottom. I relocated the bags that are not used but to fill the containers when empty to the shelf above so the majority of my bottles are visible! It was easy to put together and adjust the size. I love the finished organization!" —Lisa

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    3. Or, a set of spice-gripper clips to take advantage of the backside of your door.

    amazon.com

    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 $10.97 (for six strips).

    4. A storage cabinet you can attach onto your door hinges, making for easy access to foods you know are going to be expiring soon.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this cabinet! Our pantry is small so I had spices, oils, and other condiments in our kitchen cabinets. This cabinet allowed me enough room to put all of our spices, oils, salts, etc., which emptied two of our smaller cabinets, so now I can space out our pots and pans. Not only did it give me two extra cabinets to use in my kitchen, but I also have much better access and visibility to spices and other things. Even though my kids have the built-in closets, I may get them for their purses, etc. Truly love this thing.." —BJ

    Get it from Amazon for $158.99.

    5. A sworn-by airtight storage container set that'll never create any doubt about how much baking soda or sugar you're stocked with.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "They look very clean and sharp in the pantry and make my life much more organized because I can see how much I have left and what I need to restock on." —Jade Hassan

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99 (for a five-piece set).

    6. Or, a set of color-coded nesting storage containers so they only take up space when they need to.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "They are the greatest. No more random lids n' containers in my pantry. These are so worth it!" —Mary Gane

    Get a 12-piece set from Amazon for $28.49.

    7. Clear bins so you can easily corral items by section or "category," rather than dumping their contents into individual containers.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Good to use for sliding items in and out in the pantry. Very pleased with this purchase." —Rosemary

    Get a pair from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in four sizes).

    8. A can rack that'll allow you to position the goods you plan on scarfing down first in front (and those you're saving for some special occasion in the back).

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This can rack organizer is a great product that makes storing cans so much easier. Before we had this product, we were stacking the cans in rows, which was fine but hard to see what you still had. Every time you take a can, the next can rolls to the front. This rack saves us time and space and makes our seven-can soup recipe so much easier to make. I recommend this product to anyone who stores and uses canned foods often and for those looking to improve on storage and organization of their pantry." —Jason and Kelle

    Get it from Amazon for $24.97.

    9. A collapsible storage bin, if you've bin looking for a smart place to store your produce and remind you to eat it before it goes bad.

    MoMA Design Store

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

    10. A tea bag organizer that'll give all your loose bags a home — a home that is not barricading your access to that box of Banza you were planning on eating tonight.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a lot of tea that i typically just toss in a basket. Finally caved and ordered this tea bag organizer. 100% recommended. It's amazing and a real space saver. The drawers are great and easily slide on and off the tracks. The bottom drawers make great use of bigger bags or misc things. The whole piece itself is very thin so it's easy to fit places without it being in the way.”—Juliet

    Get it from Amazon for $14.96+ (available in black, red, and white).

    11. A four-tier rack if you're looking for a super narrow storage solution to fit into your tight space. Each tier can be designated for the meals of the day (the fourth, being dessert, of course) if you want to go the extra mile.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Just want we needed to fit into our limited space pantry. Can be moved out of the way when we need to reach other items." —On The Road Again

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    12. An adjustable wrap stand that'll get you more pumped on the idea of wrapping up your leftovers and eating that for lunch tomorrow.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Just what I needed! Great product! It stands perfectly well with or without boxes in it. It is a real game-changer for my cupboard because now my boxes are organized and not all mumble-jumbled falling out when I open the door!" —Bethay

    Get it from Amazon for $33.90.

    13. A stackable organizer to fit twice as many pinto beans into your space (and therefore twice as many burritos for the week).

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are perfect for my pantry to utilize space more efficiently. My pantry shelves are racks though so I did also have to purchase hard plastic sheets to go over the tops of mine so that I could use these shelves." —Yvonne M. Parker

    Get it from Amazon for $20.97 (for two).

    14. A mop and broom holder that'll get out of the way to let your food items shine.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a small apartment and the closet was always a mess with the brooms hitting me in the face whenever I took the trash out. This saved me so much stress! The slots have little rollers and they move to fit just about any size mop or broom. There are also little hooks that can drop down if you want to hold towels or the dust pan, which is what I use it for. This is a must-have organizational tool!" —Jacqui

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    15. A rolling three-piece pet-food storage system to conveniently keep your pet's food supply separate from your own.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Not only are these containers airtight, they are also dog-proof! I left my three boxers inside the house with two sets of these containers and came home to find them in various places in the house, with numerous scratches and bite marks, but still closed and the contents safe! Attempts at self-feeding were foiled! Great product!" —Diana Nicholson

    Get it from Amazon for $18.36+ (available in 12 colors).

    16. A mess-free storage bin with a spout so what you eat isn't dictated by how much cleanup it'll call for.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Love these sooo much I bought three! I use them to hold rice, homemade breadcrumbs, and coconut flour. The caps make a nice airtight lid and they're very convenient to use, always right where to need them to be. The sizing on the bin itself is a little tall, so I store these lying down in my cabinets, otherwise, they don't fit. If you are looking for something to store your grains/powders/crumbs/seeds/cereal/whatever in, these bins are AWESOME." —Chris

    Get it from Amazon for $13.95.

    17. A lazy Susan to remember all those items chilling in the hidden corners.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I put one of these turntables in the corner of every other shelf of my new pantry. I arranged the shelves in such a way that I had easy access to them and that tall items could be placed on them. They are super sturdy and the non-slip rubber surface is such a plus. The lip on the edges is great too! I would expect a turntable of this quality to be much more expensive (but happy they were so reasonably priced)!" —Sherry D. Johnson

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

    18. A set of shatter-resistant, leak-proof, air-tight containers for your non-perishables so you know exactly what you have without too much squinting.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I’m pleased with the performance of these glass-like plastic containers. They’re great for meal prep, freezing and microwaving. Even microwaved tomato sauce doesn’t stain these. The clip-on lids mean there’s no spilling or leaking despite frequent drops. The extremely tight seal may be tough for hands which are more arthritic than mine. Many sizes available. I can heartily recommend these." —HollyShort

    Get a seven-container set from Amazon for $24.99.

    19. Chalkboard labels that'll allow you to get as specific as you'd like — labeling things by expiration date, course, etc.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These labels were purchased to use on food containers for my pantry. The sizes and shapes are numerous. The small chalk marker writes great on the labels. They wipe off with a damp paper towel. Wipe dry and reuse. They cling to the container securely but peel off to reuse. I ordered another set because I like them so much." —Kindle Customer

    Get a set of 90 stickers and a 3mm pen on Amazon for $8.99.

    20. An adjustable bakeware rack in case the thing holding you back from making that salmon is finding the correct sheet in a mess of other supplies.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "We have one kitchen drawer and very awkward cabinets in our apartment so organizing was an ever-changing and maddening puzzle. Frustrated with the challenge, I went online and came across this product, which originally seemed expensive at $19.99. In my desperation, I decided to try it out anyway. I ended up loving it and bought three more at that price. I'm happy to recommend this product to others in the same situation especially with the price cut. It's very sturdy and takes only seconds to set up!" —Elizabeth Giordano

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    21. Wall-mountable baskets that'll force you to either eat those bananas already or make a banana bread with them, for god's sake.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I adore these baskets. I got two of the the medium size in bronze and they fit perfectly with my kitchen. They hold four of the quart-size Ball mason jars nicely. Nice quality and finish." —Lulabelle

    Get it from Amazon for $6.16+ (available in three sizes and two colors).

    22. Some bare-bones metal shelving to give yourself the option of sorting foods by category.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love these shelves. I bought two so I could start a stock pile of household goods and they fit so much more than I thought they would. They weren't hard to put together at all. They are very sturdy and look great! I would highly recommend these." —Gamble

    Get them from Amazon: shelving for $65.99+ and liners for $26.99

    23. Wall-mounted sponge caddies that'll hold your paper packets (dips, sauces, etc.) so they never go overlooked (and make you miss out on a delicious savory pot roast).
