    1. An over-the-cabinet storage shelf so you'll always have an easy way to store your cutting boards and smaller pans instead of mindlessly throwing them in and hoping for the best.


    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 — 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 $14.87 (also available in a pack of two).

    2. An adjustable rack to neatly store your pans, muffin tins, and pie trays so you can quickly grab what you need and get your bake on.

    Promising review: "Loved it so much I bought a second one immediately! Works great for circular pans, 9x13 cake pans, heavier pans, jelly roll pans, awkward collapsible colanders, cutting boards, whatever you want. Having nonskid feet is a big plus." —Organization Freak/Hobby Cook

    Promising review: "This product does exactly what it is supposed to and does it well. In under 15 minutes, I took my nightmare lid drawer and turned it into a functional, convenient storage space. The dividers were simple to install and provided flexibility. Slowly but surely I am getting my tiny, chaotic kitchen under control, and this got me a huge leap closer." —S. Hawthorn

    4. A K-Cup organizer that'll allow you to store your precious capsules of caffeine goodness underneath your cabinets and make room for more unnecessary but oh-so-cute coffee mugs.

    Promising review: "I really like this wine rack! I needed a nice, space-saving solution for wine glasses that are too tall to go in my glass cabinet, and this rack fits the bill. It was simple to install and looks great. Good buy!" —Cycle Mom

    Get it from Amazon for $21.93+ (available in four sizes and four colors).

    6. 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.

    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.

    7. A nifty shelving unit made specifically for the unruly collection of water bottles you've accumulated over the years. This will make it much easier to grab the one you want for the day and put it back once you wash it.

    Model placing water bottle on storage rack in cabinet

    Promising review: "I have a bad habit of buying reusable water bottles. This one is cute, this one has this feature, this one has that. What resulted was a cluttered cabinet, a ton of water bottles falling on me every time I went to get one, and I was only using the handful right at the front. This is a great solution! It keeps the cupboard organized and I can see what I have and quickly grab the bottle I need. As a bonus, it also creates a built-in limitation on how many water bottles I can have at any given time. Really recommend." —Miki

    Get the three-shelf version from Amazon for $22.49.

    8. 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.


    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.

    9. These ridiculously convenient magnetic bottle holders so you'll always have easy access to your favorite brews and still have plenty of storage space underneath them.

    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.

    10. 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.

    Reviewer photo of pitcher inside fridge door's shelf

    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).

    11. An innovative yogurt holder that will let you slide them on the side of your fridge instead of letting them take up valuable shelf space.

    Get it from Storage Theory on Etsy for $10.99 (also available in a pack of two).

    12. A 12-piece set of nesting food storage containers with easily stackable lids — which is honestly pure genius. This will basically triple the amount of storage space in your cursed Tupperware cabinet.


    Promising review: "I never lose any lids and now can keep everything completely together and stored in one large container. It is an awesome concept with lids and containers that are color-coded and fit nicely into my small cabinet space. No more opening the cabinet door and being attacked by flying lids that just pile up in a corner next to containers that they no longer fit. This product is great and I don't have any problems keep it clean or microwaving food. I treat these containers with great care and I think they will last for a bit. Great and well-made product! Worth the price!" —Linda Lou

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99.

    13. A pasta strainer that's worth buying simply for the fact that you can now toss the bulky colander that's taking up way too much space in your cabinet. The super cute whale design is just an irresistible bonus!

    Promising review: "Love the idea of this. It takes up less room and less things to wash. That is always a good thing. I would suggest purchasing this if you have limited space in your kitchen." —Lori Lynn Barker

    Promising review: "With all our spices on one level, we had to take out every spice to get to the ones in the back. Now they are all visible and you can just reach in and take out the one you need. Easy peasy!" —Kindle Customer

    15. Or! A set of spice-gripper clips because your kitchen is way too small to not be utilizing literally every single inch of space inside your cabinet.

    Sets of spice-gripper clips hanging on the inside of a cabinet door

    Promising review: "OMG, I love these things! Such a simple idea; how did I ever live without them? ... 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 a set of six from Amazon for $9.97 (also available as a set of four and in two colors).

    16. OR! A pack of spice liners so you'll never have to fumble around in your drawers and cabinets to find the cinnamon. The soft fabric keeps the bottles in place and labels facing up, so your spice drawer will be both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

    Promising review: "This is one of my favorite things I've ever purchased from Amazon! They are so customizable and allow you to cut them and shape them to any drawer size. I think this will be my go-to gift for all of my friends who love cooking as much as I do! Freeing up cabinet space and having something that can so easily be rinsed off in the sink makes this a for-sure buy!" —momonono

    Get it from Amazon for $15.29+ (available in two colors).

    17. A handmade organizer for plastic storage bags so you can grab whatever size you need without the bulky boxes getting in the way.

    18. A tiered shelf with three spaces so all of your bottles are perfectly in reach every time you need them.

    Various bottles and spices placed on three-tiered stand

    Promising review: "I added this item to my shopping list several weeks ago and I’m so glad I finally committed to buying it. As a vegetarian, I’ve found that I have to add double the spice just to get a real kick in the dishes I prepare. Not to mention, making sure that I have all the spices that I’m going to need while being quarantining/social distancing. With that said, my spice cabinet was atrocious before I got these racks. And I am so happy to finally be able to grab my spices without knocking over the other ones and making even more of a mess. I didn’t know something so small and plain could bring me so much joy. Buy it now! You will not be disappointed." —Arie M.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in two sizes and 16 colors).

    19. A shelf with several hooks that simply hangs with a powerful adhesive and has *so* many uses. You can stick it above your stove for a place to store your go-to spices and oils, or place it on the side of your fridge for extra condiment storage.

    Promising review: "I was looking for a way to get everything off the small ledge of my combined bathtub/shower. This shower caddy was the perfect fix. It is very attractive with the non-rust silver metal. I followed the instructions and it was easy to install on the back wall of my shower. The shelf holds all we need while bathing; shampoo conditioner, body wash, face wash, etc. The hooks are great for hanging up our shower pads and poofs. This is very functional for my compact bathroom that four people share." —Jodi Reilly

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in two colors).

    20. A sliding shelf so you can actually see, reach for, and eat your food before it expires and falls into the endless black hole at the back of your cabinet.

    Promising review: "After multiple attempts to organize my deep, narrow, hard to organize lower cabinet, where I keep pots and pans, I finally tried one of the Lynx sliding shelves. WHY didn’t I just buy this to begin with?! I have these awful half-shelves in the lower cabinets that don’t hold much and making organizing even more difficult. Reaching into these lower cabinets can be painful and maddening when you need one pan or pot, but you have to remove EVERYTHING, set them on the floor, grab the one item you need, and shove the stack back into the narrow and deep cabinet. THIS sliding shelf solves the problem!" —Mustang Sally

    Get it from Amazon for $44.50+ (available in seven sizes).

    21. An expandable shelf that'll make it easy to stack all your coffee cups and bowls. The shelf itself is easily stackable, so you can buy a few and create multiple levels.

    Reviewer's before-and-after results showing how expandable shelves help organize cabinets

    Promising review: "I really needed something to store my big pots and pans in the cabinet. I have other racks in which I have stored small- to medium-sized pots and lids but for big ones I needed something different. I just took a chance and ordered this. I was worried that this is going to be very flimsy. I was wrong. It's very strong. I have expanded the rack and put two big pots/pans on top and two big on the bottom. It's amazing how much space my cabinet has now. This is really a good buy." —Mrspjr

    Get it from Amazon for $16.87 (available in two colors).

    22. A corner shelf to help you utilize all that awkward unused space toward the back of your cabinets. It'll also help you get rid of that shaky pile of dishes that looks like it's going to come crashing down at any minute.

    Promising review: "Took me a while to find a three-tier one. Most are two-tiers. But I have plates of three different sizes, and not a lot of each size, so this is perfect! And it saves soooo much room in my cabinet!" —Sam L.

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    23. A four-pack of plastic stackable food storage bins so you can use every bit of vertical space in your cabinet and get to stacking all those un-stackable items.

    Promising review: "I was looking for things to help organize our pantry. We have a small kitchen, so it's usually pretty full. These were perfect for holding smaller/loose items and saving space. I would recommend to anyone trying to get organized!" —Casey

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in five sizes).

    24. A magnetic knife and utensil holder to free up some counter space and wow everyone who steps foot in your kitchen.

    Promising review: "I want order another one! I wish I had thought to purchase one of these sooner. The magnet is strong and holds plenty of my everyday knives. I decided to put it on the side of my fridge and it holds perfectly. I didn't need anything extra to hold it in place either. I'd like to get one more for the rest of my tools because this is so much better than the block! Now I have more counter space." —RayJoni07

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in two sizes).

    25. A roll-up dish-drying rack that's a major space saver and surprisingly multifunctional. It can also be used as a trivet mat on your countertop or simply as a way to turn your sink into some extra counter space when you're cooking. My fellow tiny apartment dwellers, rejoice!

    The rack unfurled over a sink, with several glasses drying on top of it

    It's heat-resistant up to 400 degrees F and can be tossed in the dishwasher for easy cleaning.

    Promising review: "It is incredibly versatile and a wonderful addition to our kitchen. So far I have used it for drying large items over the sink, filling a pot when the sink was already full, and as a counter trivet for a hot pan, and it performs beautifully in all these roles. The metal rods are strong and sturdy enough to hold heavy items, long enough to span our sink from multiple angles, and best of all, it rolls up for easy storage when not in use. All around a great kitchen tool, and I'll never be without one again." —T. Eicher

    Get it from Amazon for $23.98+ (available in two sizes).

    26. A handcrafted organizer to give you the perfect place to store your tumbler lids instead of stacking them in an unstable pile and hoping they don't topple over.


    Promising review: "Fits both sizes of Yeti lids! Wish I'd had this years ago." —Mariann H.

    Model placing tongs into red drawer organizer

    Promising review: "I often write about organization, but I like a wee bit of clutter in my life. (I will never de-clutter to spark joy or whatever.) I have a place for everything and know where that is, whether it makes sense to my roommates or not. But a knife drawer requires order, because safety! Perhaps you are fortunate enough to have a kitchen with separate knife and junk drawers. I don’t! (I don’t have room for a countertop knife storage solution, either.) So when I spotted a drawer organizing system on my old job’s free table three years ago, I snatched it up. It’s been keeping my combo knife/junk drawer in order since.

    The nonslip silicone base is lined in a grid, which makes cutting it to size with a pair of scissors easy. But it’s NBD if you cut too much (as you can see I did in the pic to fit the notches of my drawer). The little nubs, aka Divitz, stick securely to the surface and don’t budge when you’re rummaging through your drawer. Yet if you want to reposition them, it’s not an excruciating task. My kit came with way more than I could possibly use and I have the extras in a sandwich bag on a seldom-used kitchen cabinet shelf. More knives normally live in this drawer than in my pics, but they were on my drying rack, hence the empty sections. Granted, I could do a much better job at organizing the back part of this drawer, or even arranging it in a neater way for this demonstration, but I’m just living my truth here! (A safer truth in which I don’t accidentally cut myself reaching for a paring knife.)" —Elizabeth Lilly

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

    28. A set of fridge 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!

    Reviewer photo showing the inside of a fridge organized using the bins

    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 $38.99.

    29. 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.,

    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 $22.99.

    30. A wooden organizer which also doubles as a dispenser for plastic wrap, wax paper, and aluminum foil. It's time you toss those annoying cardboard boxes for something way more elegant.

    Cans placed in dispenser rack inside cabinet

    Promising review: "We have a storage cabinet in our garage that I like to keep stocked with nonperishable food since we never know when we'll end up on a two week quarantine these days. I was having a hard time keeping up with what we had and it was just a jumbled mess. My rack came today and it's so much more organized. It's super sturdy and it only took a couple of minutes to put together. I filled it up and I was able fit 44 cans since some are tiny... 5 stars!" —Kimberly C.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in four colors and packs of two).

    32. A game-changing pan and pot lid organizer, because reaching for your favorite cookware shouldn't feel like playing a game of Jenga in your cabinet.


    You can use it upright or on its side.

    Promising review: "I was tired of stacking my frying pans on top of each other and was looking for something to both organize my pans and give me easy access to them. Before this organizer, I would have to unstack several pans in order to get to the middle pan that I needed. Now, I can just reach in and immediately get the frying pan that I need without having to unstack. The quality of this organizer is pretty good." —Linda

    Get it from Amazon for $15.97+ (available in three colors).

    33. An organizer tray to keep all of your silverware in its proper place, because not every drawer should be a junk drawer. The slanted, stacked design will also add so much extra space.

    Promising review: "I loved this so much I bought one for the bestie who just bought a new house. My silverware drawer is organized for the first time in forever!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $21.24.

    34. A tea bag organizer since tea time is supposed to be a relaxing, orderly experience. You'll save so much space once you get rid of those unnecessary boxes.

    Promising review: "Do I really need a tea bag organizer? That's what I was thinking when I ordered this. And when I took it out of the box. And when I filled the first little bag holder. But as the pile of empty boxes grew larger, I knew the answer was yes, I do need a tea bag organizer. I was using a whole shelf and a half of jumbled tea boxes which I had to sift through to look for a specific tea. In the end, I think this held about eight or nine boxes of tea bags (I crammed some of them). I am so happy that I got this!" —Sarah C.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in three styles).

    35. A rotating utensil holder so you can spin away and grab whatever you need. It might also fool people into thinking you cook regularly, so it's a win-win.

    The utensil holder in stainless steel with a rubber bottom

    Promising review: "I cook a LOT. I had a utensil holder, but it wasn't big enough so it was hard to slide the utensils in — and if it was semi-empty, they were tilting and falling. I threw it away and used a drawer but then was super sick of digging through everything to get what I needed, especially when you have something on the stove and you need it pronto. I ordered this and love it. It rotates so you can spin it around to get what you need really quickly, has three dividers in it (so the utensils aren't falling over every time you pull one out), and is big enough to fit everything. I have maxed it out with all my utensils — I have 16 cooking utensils in it at a time. It also looks really nice and sleek on the counter. I highly recommend this product." —Jessie

    Get it from Amazon for $19.50.

    36. A can dispensing rack to hold all your favorite sodas — because it's finally time to ditch those flimsy cardboard boxes.,

    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 $21.87 (available in four colors).

    37. A two-tiered turntable so you can spin all of your spices and canned goods instead of taking them out one-by-one just to find what you need.,

    Promising review: "This turned a mess of a cabinet into an organized cabinet. We use A LOT of spices and it was always a nightmare to find the right one. Now I just spin to find what I want. It’s a nice height too and allows for different size bottles to be placed on the racks." —Vegmom

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in 13 colors).

    38. And an adjustable wrap stand so you can easily find your plastic wrap and aluminum foil — because be honest, you usually just throw them in a random cabinet and hope you remember where you put them later.


    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
