    Three-tiered storage cart placed between bed and bedside table

    Promising review: "This has transformed the way my bathroom looks in the best way, I have nothing on my floor and top of my toilet anymore and it really just makes everything look 10x cleaner!! I wish I would have bought this sooner, literally will do wonders for whatever it is you need to keep clean and organized (just make sure you’re getting the right size and you’ll be golden!!)." —Monika Fia

    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 $18.99+ (available in four sizes and 27 colors).

    Expandable shelf placed in closet

    Promising review: "I had a lot of wasted space at the top of my narrow linen closet, and a deep shelf would not work. This shelf was the perfect solution. Now I can stack my less frequently used large towels at the top of the closet and still be able to access the shelf below. Strong and easy to install, and the shelf won't slip. Very happy to have found this shelf." —Mother of Cats

    Get it from Amazon for $34.89+ (available in two sizes and two pack sizes).

    Promising review: "It sounds silly, but this shower caddy met all of my expectations and is really wonderful. There are four sturdy shelves that are easily adjustable, and lots of other ways to hang things (razors, loofahs, combs, washcloths). The water drains easily out of the shelves. The shelves are large enough to fit two big shampoo/conditioner bottles, and are durable enough to hold them. I have been wanting a solid shower caddy for years and finally found one." —Alissa P.

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99 (available in two colors).

    6. A set of six over-the-door shelves perfect for storing random accessories that are currently scattered all over your room. Actually, you might want one of these for every door in your home.,

    Promising review: "I am so happy I found this little gem of a product. I got one for myself and one for a friend who I was helping get organized. The little pockets are great and hold more than you think they will. I love that the front of the pockets is a clear view so you can see everything that is in the pocket. The product is very sturdy and really super easy to put together and hang up on the doors." —MM1986

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

    Promising review: "My boyfriend and I recently moved in together and one of my main concerns was our combined shoe storage. We just installed this last week and I felt compelled to write a review because it is THE BEST shoe storage solution I have ever come across. I've tried under the bed, over-the-door pockets, shelves, stands, you name it...but this one is just the most organized, most logical storage ever." —Kathleen

    Get it from Amazon for $37.41 (available in four styles).

    8. A four-section organizer that will have you wondering why all hanging storage shelves don't have a garment rod at the bottom.

    Hanging storage shelf with rod hanging in closet

    Promising review: "I’m a college student, so I don’t get much closet space. This saved me a lot of space considering I could hang my pants, skirts, and dresses and fold everything else. It’s sturdy and I love it. I was scared to buy it at first because the picture makes the metal seem weak and flimsy but it’s actually really strong." —Jen

    Get it from Amazon for $22.10.

    9. 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 $15.87 (available in three colors).

    10. An easily hangable T-shirt organizer so you can roll up all of your favorite graphic tees and neatly store them on the back of your closet door. It's so much easier than rummaging through a crowded drawer or shuffling through endless hangers.

    11. 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).

    12. 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 $39.99.

    13. A tree-shaped jewelry holder that's perfect if you're going for an enchanted forest vibe in your bedroom. Its branches can hold everything from necklaces to earrings, and the little birds will make you feel like Snow White every morning.,

    Promising review: "This ring/jewelry holder is a little bigger than I expected it to be, and definitely is more suitable to a nightstand or dresser than on a bathroom vanity. That being said, the construction is very sturdy and it can easily hold a lot of jewelry. This is a great gift for a jewelry collector who already has a ton of jewelry and needs an innovative way to store and display it. There are a ton of branches on the tree, and each can easily fit four to seven rings or necklaces." —Tom

    Get it from Amazon for $14.98+ (available in four colors).

    The wall-mounted stainless-steel strip holding up a set of knives and whisk

    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 $15.99+ (available in three sizes).

    16. 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).

    17. 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.

    18. 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.

    Model holding toothbrush up to automatic toothpaste dispenser

    Promising review: "Every household with kids should have this thing, actually EVERY HOUSEHOLD, REGARDLESS! No more finding toothpaste everywhere but down the sink drain, no more throwing half a tube away because of lost caps, insert your favorite brand in the dispenser and voila! Simply press your brush against lever and a perfectly portioned dollop every time. When it’s time to rinse, grab one of the four cups that are hidden in the top and bottom of this little masterpiece. Rinse your brush, open the storage compartment, hang brush, and shut lid! Bristles are covered and protected from the wide array of germs that like to inhabit bathrooms." —Jen

    20. This helpful "couch buddy" with special spots for various beverages and a center caddy for remotes, coasters, and other random essentials.

    Reviewer's couch buddy on couch

    Promising review: "Very functional and was just what I was looking for my pit lounge/sofa. It has just the right amount of pockets and deep enough for your accessories, standard size width coffee cups and soda can size width drinking cups. Very sturdy and with little movement when placed where needed even on couch/sofa/bed." —50s Dreamer

    Get it from Amazon for $44.97 (available in four colors).

    21. 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.

    The tray with slanted slots to separate the utensils

    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 $21.99.

    22. A felt handbag insert with several pockets and compartments that'll stop your purse from becoming an endless black hole of nothingness. Just imagine reaching into your bag and finding your lip balm on the very first try.

    Promising review: "My summer handbag has no dividers, so everything falls into a lump together. I was so pleased to find the smaller slender option for this organizer. It slides down into my purse with room on the sides to spare - this is exactly what I wanted since it lets me put things into the organizer and then other things outside of it on either side. I ordered the gray color and am very satisfied with the construction and fabric used." —Jay

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in five sizes and 16 colors).

    23. 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 $19.41.

    24. A genius hook-shaped hanger specifically designed for hoodies — because hanging them on regular hangers is so annoying.

    VenalliBuilds/Etsy, Daniel Boan/BuzzFeed

    This is one of those "where has this been all my life?!" type of products. I'm a sucker for a soft hoodie, especially ever since my apartment became my office and now I can wear them 24/7. As much as I love curling up in them, hanging hoodies in the closet is SUCH a pain. They always slip right off my plastic hangers unless I zip them all the way up, so they usually just end up thrown over a random chair (or that mini elliptical I bought in March 2020 and have used a total of two times 😬).

    These little hook-shaped hangers are the storage miracle I never knew I needed. Now I can just hang my sweatshirts and jackets by the hood and easily grab them when I need them — no zipping or folding necessary! Best of all, the pile of random hoodies on my chair has disappeared. I'm keeping the mini elliptical covered though.

    25. 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 nine colors).

    26. 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 $24.99.

    27. 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).

    28. A surprisingly sturdy folding ottoman that looks like a cute piece of décor for kicking your feet up, but it's actually a secret spot for random knickknacks and blankets. Plus, the lid can flip over to transform it into a small side table!


    Promising review: "I got this for my desk at work. I wanted to prop up my feet. It's extremely sturdy, I can pull it out and have a co-worker sit on it if we need to meet. We don't have a lot of storage so I was super excited to have some extra space to keep some things. I haven't tested the weight limit but I think someone could stand and jump on this thing and it wouldn't collapse." —Bippy

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in two fabrics and three colors).

    29. A hanger with perfectly sized hoops so you can organize your tangled pile of scarves and easily pick a new one for every day of the week.

    Over-the-door hooks with various items placed on them

    Promising review: "We recently moved into a small rental while we are building a home, and it lacked in storage! So I ordered a few of these to put on doors and it has solved some of our storage problems! Very sturdy. I hang my kids' backpacks on them, plus so much more and they hold up. I ordered the bronze, and it is a nice finish. Definitely recommend!" —Amber D

    Get it from Amazon for $13.15.

    31. A set of three floating shelves to give you more space for your random collectibles and cute decor you impulsively bought on your last Target run.,

    Promising review: "Love love love, a million times, love! These shelves are EXACTLY what I was looking for to get rid of stuff all over my bathroom counter. I'm going to order like three more sets for all over my house. For easy install, mark where the screws sit on the side of the shelves and mark the top of where you want the shelf to sit on the wall and use a leveler! Super quick and easy!" —Amber P

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in two sizes and two colors).

    32. A spinning cosmetics organizer with adjustable shelves for all your everyday essentials that will instantly make you feel like a glamorous beauty vlogger with an immaculate vanity. Tati Westbrook is quaking.

    Promising review: "I love this thing! My husband got me a new vanity for my birthday so I ordered this to go with it. It holds all my makeup and I put everything in order of when I use it so I just spin it, use what I need, then spin it again. It makes my morning so much easier." —MB

    Get it from Amazon for $17.59+ (available in five colors).

    33. A cord-managing box to cover the unsightly, tangled mess of cords under your desk and make you feel like the productive professional you pretend to be.

    Promising review: "This is the third box I have ordered and I am still happy with this product. It keeps the cats from turning off my power strip when they zoom behind the couch. The first two I ordered were all white, which was fine for where I placed them. With this purchase I went with the wood grain top which blends in more easily with the surrounding area. I would, obviously, purchase this item again." —Susan Beattie

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in five colors).

    34. A pack of two under-bed storage bags — because your room is way too small to not be using every bit of storage space possible. This is also a must for anyone currently living in a dorm.


    Promising review: "Absolutely 5 stars!! I ordered these because I live in a tiny apartment and needed to put away my extra bedding set under our bed. These were the most affordable option I could find for the purpose and it was great that they came in a set of two, at that. Dude...just one of these bags can easily fit like three to four thick comforters/quilts. When both of these are filled to the max, I’m sure they will both fit comfortably under my queen size mattress. I definitely recommend!" —Sierra A.

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $8.49+ (available in six colors).

    35. A nifty shelving unit to add some extra height so you'll actually have space for your laptop, textbooks, and everything else you need to get some work done in your room.

    Shelving unit placed on reviewer's desk with various items inside

    Promising review: "I am so glad I purchased this shelf! I was surprised by the quality. It doesn't feel flimsy or like it will break. It was super easy to put together, very sturdy and holds a lot. You're able to adjust the length of the shelf because the two parts aren't connected, which is nice. Its not too big or bulky that it takes up too much space, but still reasonably sized to fit pretty much everything you need. Overall, I just love it and am happy with my purchase!" —Desiree W.

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99 (available in two colors).

    38. An expandable shelf that will help you make the most out of that awkward space under your sink. It's fully adjustable, so you can easily fit it around your sink's pipes.

    Promising review: "Great product for a great price. Very sturdy, but lightweight and small. Under my bathroom sink is *very* small, and the metal frame is thin enough that it doesn't take up much space, and of course it allows me to utilize the empty vertical space instead of shoving things all the way to the back wall." —Jennifer Mowry

    Get it from Amazon for $24.97 (available in three colors).

Slowly but surely I am getting my tiny, chaotic kitchen under control, and this got me a huge leap closer." —S. Hawthorn

    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.
