    1. A three-tiered shelf that'll help you take advantage of all the unused vertical space in your cabinets. You might just find the spice you're looking for on the first try.

    amazon.com

    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 somethings so small and plain could bring me so much joy. Buy it now! You will not be disappointed." —Arie M.

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

    amazon.com

    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 $19.99+ (available in five colors).

    3. 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.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in two sizes and three styles).

    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).

    5. A felt handbag insert with several pockets and compartments that will 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.

    amazon.com

    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 $15.88+ (available in five sizes and 15 colors).

    6. A food container lid organizer, because finding the matching top to your Tupperware container shouldn't feel like an impossible task.

    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
    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in four sizes).

    Promising review: "A year later and this caddy is still going strong! I love it just as much as when I posted my initial review. It's easy to clean, holds quite a bit, hasn't lost its tension, and the shelves haven't slipped. If I were to divorce, I'd give up the house as long as I could keep the caddy. But I suppose I'd need to be married first ;)" —Tracy Lyn

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

    8. A can dispensing rack to add some order to the ridiculous amount of canned veggies and soups you panic-bought during a buy one, get one free sale at the start of the pandemic.

    amazon.com

    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 $17.87+ (available in four colors and packs of two).

    9. A cable box that'll wrangle and conceal the mess of cables under your desk right now.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Does exactly what it's supposed to do. Keeps the power strip and all the connected power cables out of sight, neat and organized. The only challenge I had was the need to unplug everything to put the power strip inside the box and then re-route the power cables into the box. Once done though, I no longer found myself stepping on or kicking the power cords on the floor. This keeps them nice and neat and out of the way." —Mitchell Bell

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    10. A set of fridge bins so you can stop having to rearrange your groceries every time you buy something new. 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!

    amazon.com

    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 $35.99.

    11. A set of space-saving folding hangers that will practically double your closet space. They easily unfold when you're ready to hang up your fresh laundry, then fold back down to give you some extra room.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was so desperate for more space, I was considering spending big bucks to have a professional come in and redesign the space. Then I found these and it's like my hanging space quadrupled! It feels downright luxurious in my closet now. I can see all my clothes and nothing is squished together like it used to be. I can also comfortably add a substantial amount of clothing and would still have room to grow. BUY THESE IMMEDIATELY!" —milanina77

    Get a 10-pack from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in two colors and a pack of 16).

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "First of all, when you see 'jumbo' in the title, you better believe these things are JUMBO! These bags of limitless storage can hold just about anything fabric that you need squishing down into a manageable block. I've used these for blankets, clothes, and precious keepsakes and I feel secure in the knowledge that they are all well-protected. The plastic is thick but not stiff, so you know it's good quality." —Kimball Household

    Get a pack of six jumbo bags from Amazon for $39.99 (also available in three other sizes and a variety pack).

    Simply slip it on to a clothing hanger and place it wherever you please. One side features 32 clear pockets for all of your small earrings and bracelets, while the other side has 18 hoops for necklaces.

    Promising review: "I needed something that would save me space but where I could still see all of my jewelry. These things are extremely durable. I bought two of them and have probably 50 or so necklaces on one side and maybe 30 pairs of earrings on the other side. There is not a single tear in it. In the other one, I keep nail polishes. It is very convenient because you can see all the colors, and it does not take up that much space." —Nellie F.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in three colors).

    14. An expandable spice rack to help you actually see and use the massive collection of seasonings you've somehow accumulated over the years.

    amazon.com

    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

    Get two-shelves from Amazon for $27.99.

    15. 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.

    amazon.com

    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 $16.13.

    16. A set of bestselling dividers to keep your sock drawer from becoming a bottomless pit of mismatched pairs. Now you can just open your drawer, grab what you need, and go about your day.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "No matter how neatly I fold my bras and underwear, they always seem to become a big jumble in the drawer. These organizers are perfect for keeping everything in place, and you won't forget about those items you own that end up buried at the back." —M. Hanson

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $14.97 (available in seven colors).

    17. 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.

    amazon.com

    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 $22.87+ (available in three colors).

    18. 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.

    amazon.com

    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 $23.51+ (available in three styles).

    19. 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.

    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

    You'll get two small, two medium and two large bins that you can fit in one drawer, or spread around your house as needed.

    Promising review: "Great product! I bought these to put in my nightstand drawer to store small things, as the drawer is very deep. I've got ChapStick, hand lotions, a small flashlight, and other bedside items in them so they're not just rolling around the drawer. I just bought some more for my bathroom vanity. They fit together nicely but also lift right out of each other. The plastic is sturdy, and they came individually wrapped to keep them from scratching." —Sparkyj

    Get a six-piece from Amazon for $14.99.

    21. A hanger stacker that might just make you look forward to hanging up your clothes. If you're constantly searching your closet rack for unused hangers, this stacker will be a major time-saver.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Working in retail for a million years, I know how amazing these can be in keeping your life less chaotic! I put off ordering for months, and I'm mad at myself that I did, because these beat a box of hangers hands-down! I ordered two — one for dress/shirt hangers and one for skirt/pant hangers. They arrived today, seem to be made of the same metal that I've used in retail stores, appear to be sturdy, and are super easy to assemble!" —KatieLee333

    Get it from Amazon for $19.10.

    22. 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.

    TMCustomWoodwork/Etsy

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

    TMCustomWoodwork is a small Etsy shop based in Charlotte, North Carolina.

    Get it from TMCustomWoodwork on Etsy for $30.

    Promising review: "The difference in my closet because of the hangers alone is striking. I can finally shift clothes to the side to actually see what I have. While some may think that saving their money and dealing with a tight closet is worth it, I am completely sold on making the change. So happy I pulled the trigger. I've purchased 100 more just now so that I can do the same for my boyfriend's closet." —ChristineSD

    Get a 30-pack from Amazon for $16.49+ (available in five colors and three styles).

    24. A flexible organizer to help you gather all the annoying charger cables and power cords that are flopping around all over your desk and under your TV.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These sleeves are outstanding. I like the fact that they are very flexible instead of the hard plastic design. And if your walls are painted white, the sleeves are very discrete ... they blend in perfectly! More importantly, there's no need for double-sided tape, which usually can cause damage to painted walls. After organizing all the wires under my computer desk, I've ordered more to discreetly hide all the wires behind my TV and the surround sound receiver. Really glad that I've found these!" —HenryG

    Get it from Amazon for $9.88+ (available in two sizes and two colors).

    25. 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.

    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 $19.99.

    26. A shaper insert that will stop your boots from slouching all over the place and keep them perfectly shaped and ready to wear once fall rolls around again.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are simple shapes of die-cut black plastic that you bend and insert into boots to keep them upright. The plastic has enough springiness that they expand to the width of the boot and slight ribbing on one side (the side you put facing the boots) so they don't slip." —PK

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $9.99 (also available in a pack of four in black and multi-color).

    27. And a compact "vault" filled with tons of pockets, drawers, and compartments so you can safely store all your documents and supplies... and maybe even a few snacks. It also easily folds up so you can move it from room to room.

    SavorTheLibrary/Etsy

    Promising review: "This is great! I bought it before an international move to organize my bits and bobs and I love it. The different sized folders are so useful and I love that it has drawers for things like keys and currency." —lauraholic

    SavorTheLibrary is a small Etsy seller based in Sag Harbor, New York.
