    Promising review: "I love these fridge liners! I actually ordered another set because I’m so picky I wanted all shelves the same teal/blue color. So pretty and easy to clean. I noticed they don’t slide. Stayed in place when items were on them or even if I tried to move them. Good buy." —Bwag

    2. A set of storage bins to add some order to your chaotic mess of groceries. And because you'll be able to actually see all your food, you might just end up using that bag of lettuce before it goes bad!

    Promising review: "It's nice to be able to find things in the refrigerator and be able to pull out the whole tray container to see what's in the back of the fridge. I don't know if this happens to you, but I find my way to the back every so often, and come to find out a jar in the back expired a year ago. Now I can see everything and use it." —BookBroke

    Get a six-piece set from Amazon for $32.99.

    3. An innovative yogurt holder that will let you slide those Yoplaits on the side of your fridge instead of taking up valuable shelf space.

    Promising review: "I have to admit that I'm surprised at how well these liners work. I've been getting organic vegetables from a local farm all summer long and these liners have helped me to keep the produce much longer than expected. They are easy to clean and worth the money!" —PrimeShopper

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $10.75.

    5. A small yet spacious clip-on drawer so you can use literally every inch of fridge space and stop rearranging your shelves every time you buy groceries.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Why has it taken me an long to buy this?! This is $20 well spent! Takes literally seconds to install and adds so much functionality. We have a smaller fridge and are always struggling to find ways to organize. No complaints!" —Barnabas D Wong-Filotei

    Get it from Amazon for $19.98.

    6. A pack of washable, reusable zipper bags that aren't just eco-friendly, they're also SO much easier to store thanks to their free-standing design. Say goodby to throwing all your bags in random places and hoping for the best!

    TheAbsoluteKitchen/Etsy

    Promising review: "Great for any use. Easy to move meat around if you are adding seasoning for a marinade. Good seal for thawing items from the freezer without getting leakage all over the fridge. The arrows on the bag and plastic lock make it simple to assemble. I've washed all the bags by hand so far and it was very quick with a brush and some mild soap." —Ashley Graf

    TheAbsoluteKitchen is a small Etsy seller based in Houston, Texas.

    Get a pack of seven from TheAbsoluteKitchen on Etsy for $39.99.

    7. An egg holder so you can stop stacking those flimsy cartons on top of each other. You'll also always be able to quickly see how many eggs you have left before making a last-minute grocery store run.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is a perfect space saver, and so much better than reusing the disposable cartons! I love that it is longer than a standard carton, utilizing more depth of the fridge shelf. I stack two on a low clearance shelf and this way can put 42 eggs in just a little more width than 24 eggs in regular cartons." —Kristen J

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    8. A spinning turntable to help you easily access all those condiments that get shoved to the back of the shelf.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I just received these today and 'put them to work' immediately! I am short and it is hard for me to reach items on the top shelves of my refrigerator. (The shelves are deep which makes it even more difficult.) Now that I have the items on these turntables, there is no problem at all. I also have a turntable on my bottom shelf and with a quick turn, I can easily see what I have. I especially like the fact that they are nonskid." —Frequent Buyer

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in six colors).

    9. A space-saving wine rack for anyone whose fridge is a bit too small for storing them upright. It's perfect for pretending you have your very own wine cellar right in your fridge.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This was exactly what I was looking for. A low profile yet stackable storage solution for my wine in the fridge. My bottles don't roll around anymore and I can identify the wine with ease." —Rikster

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $22.92 (available in two sizes).

    10. A can dispensing rack that'll hold all your favorite sodas — because it's finally time to ditch those cardboard boxes.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "We purchased two of these stackable racks for our beverage refrigerator. They are quite sturdy and well made. Together, they hold 24 cans, 12 in each rack. The cans roll easily from the top of the rack down to the bottom where they sit in a little cradle waiting to be used. You pull out a can and another rolls into its place. Really beats rooting around in the refrigerator knocking over other cans and bottles, cartons of milk and what have you." —Nancy Pearson

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $19.87+ (available in four colors).

    11. A set of labels so you can designate the perfect place for all your groceries. It also doubles as the perfect passive-aggressive way to remind your family/roommates where everything goes.

    Promising review: "These labels are perfect! I ordered several to organize and label fridge bins. I love the font. They are super easy to apply as well. I may end up labeling everything in my house." —Wendy Norman

    12. A genius stackable storage rack for 2-liter bottles of soda, because your Diet Coke addiction doesn't have to result in a cluttered fridge.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this, we have a smaller fridge and it helps to free up so much room and helps keep it organized! They clip together and stay in place. It doesn’t slide when you remove the bottle from the top or the bottom." —Laura Moore

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $14.99.

    13. These storage tubs with a removable divider so you won't have to use two different containers to store foods you don't want touching. You can fold the divider up to create two spaces or lay it flat to create an elevated surface.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are amazing! Not only do I love the design for aesthetic reasons but they do so well at keeping our fruit fresh. I used to worry about keeping berries in our fridge for more than three days and now we’re eating them a week or more after purchasing! I am blown away by these and highly recommend them! Easy to use and clean as well." —Shelby

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $43.99.

    14. A super slim pitcher that fits right inside the underutilized space in your refrigerator's door — because the orange juice you bought specifically for Sunday mimosas is taking up WAY too much space in its original carton.

    Promising review: "I have been looking for the right jar or container for juices and drink mixes for years. Well, after using this continuously for a few months, I'm convinced that this product is it!! The size is large enough to make Crystal Light iced tea mix with lots of room left. So I can make it before I have run out of my last batch. This is a large size, but it is also lightweight and a slim design for refrigerator storage. And it is totally leakproof when you lock down the top! You can shake your drink, and it will not leak. Also, the jug and top are so easy to clean when you unlock the top. It is also a 'snap' to close. GREAT product!" —Sandy S

    Get it from Amazon for $5.42+ (available in two sizes and five colors).

    15. A retro-fabulous butter dish so you can ditch the flimsy box and annoying wrapper. It might just be the most adult thing you ever purchase.

    Get it from HomeAcreDesigns on Etsy for $17.97.

    16. A set of meal prep containers that are perfectly divided for your main dish and a side, which might just convince you to make a meal with all those ingredients that are currently cluttering your fridge.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are some of the best containers I've ever purchased. They are weighty and feel super solid. I'm impressed how deep the container is too! I believe the best feature of the container is the lid. It has a rubber gasket around the rim that makes the container leak proof from any potential tipping! The snaps also feel secure when closing the lid. It is nice as well how it gives you the option to remove the snaps on the side if you want to thoroughly clean the lid." —Maddie

    Get a pack of five from Amazon for $34.99.

    17. A four-pack of fridge bins all in the same size so you can easily stack them and really maximize all that unused vertical space.

    Promising review: "These are so sturdy!! I love how easy they are to clean and use in my refrigerator! It helps keep things in order since I have my kids home and the constant going in and out during the day has made it easier for me and them to find what they need and what I need to purchase more of." —Pilialoha

    Promising review: "Of all the things I have bought that I didn't need, this is one of my favorites. Beer is hard to get out of the cardboard carrier in the top of my fridge. While just taking them out and sitting them on the shelf would have solved this problem as well. This solution is more fun. They float and technically it does make a tiny bit of extra space under the beer for small thinks like cheese or something." —AbbyValentine

    Get them from Amazon for $29.99.

    19. An air-purifying bag to help you ditch the boxes of baking soda that barely even work anyway. This one features bamboo and charcoal to help absorb odors before they have a chance to spread.

    Promising review: "Worked great after two boxes of baking soda did not. I like that it’s 'rechargeable' and recyclable." —JMcS

    Get it from Bed Bath & Beyond for $9.99 each.

    20. A seemingly simple rubber mat that will basically transform your shelf into a steady, perfect pyramid for all your bottles or cans.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Each one holds 10 beers/Cokes/whatever in a pyramid which is not only cool looking, but a very efficient use of space. It's a pretty small fridge but I can still easily get 80 beers in there, which lasts a long, long time. We also have one in our main fridge for bottles of wine/champagne/such." —Alan Montgomery

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in three colors and as a two-pack).

    21. A handy dandy airtight deli keeper so you stop fiddling around with plastic wrap every time you need to store that half-used pack of bacon.

    It's also BPA-free and dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "I bought this just for bacon and it's awesome. Don't have to open the greasy package all the time. Just open and peal off what I want. Holds at least 3 lbs. Sturdy too." —Steve

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in five styles).

    22. A set of plastic storage containers to keep your produce tasting fresh for much longer. If you constantly find yourself tossing out strawberries you totally forgot you bought, these containers will basically pay for themselves.

    Amazon

    Read our full review of the Rubbermaid FreshWorks food storage containers!

    Promising review: "I wish I would have gotten these sooner. I bought strawberries for my children, and then I forgot about them. I found them in the back of the refrigerator almost TWO WEEKS later, and they were still good. The real miracle is how long it keeps zucchini. Zucchini starts to get mushy in the crisper drawer after just a few days. Again, these miracle containers have kept it fresh for close to two weeks now. I've kept cut lettuce, cut cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, cucumbers, zucchini, sliced bell peppers, strawberries, blackberries, cut jicama, and carrots in these containers. I've had fantastic results with all of them." —Laura

    Get a three-piece set from Amazon for $34.80 (also available separately in seven sizes).

    23. An ice cube tray with a lid so your ice never absorbs any freezer odors. Plus, you won't have to worry about spilling any water after you refill it!

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE ice cubes in my drinks, and it's so annoying to have ice cube problems. I really researched ice cube trays and read a lot of reviews until I found these trays. It's so nice not to have to worry about spilling water just trying to get them in there. Also, they come out of the tray so easily! No more fighting to get the cubes out. These just kind of pop out when you press down on one side." —Kalisa

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    24. And a pack of stainless steel wipes to tackle any pesky fingerprints and practically transform your refrigerator doors into shiny mirrors.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this product! It is so easy and convenient to use. I can get by using only one or two of the wipes for all the appliances and stainless steel items in my kitchen. It removes all smudges and leaves a nice even shine everywhere." —Gloria S.

    Get a two-pack of 30-count tubs from Amazon for $15.99.
