    The unit comes with one drawer with a removable divider for 12 spaces (perfect for socks and underwear), one drawer with a removable divider for two spaces, one large drawer, and two side-by-side small drawers.

    Promising review: "If you are looking for an alternative to a dresser/closet organizer system due to limited space or limited budget, this is a great product. It is easy to assemble. The drawers slide in and out easily. Has a good amount of storage space. It is secure with the velcro that holds to the closet rod, even with clothing's weight. It is also a great value for the price." —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $35.99.

    2. An over-the-cabinet storage shelf so you'll have an easy place to quickly store your cutting boards and smaller pans instead of mindlessly throwing them in and hoping they don't topple out later.

    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 $17.97 (also available in a two-pack).

    3. A nifty shelving unit made specifically for the unruly collection of water bottles you've accumulated over the years and is taking up SO much space in your cabinet right now. This will make it much easier to grab the one you want for the day and put it back once you wash it.

    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

    4. A set of rust-proof shelves that fit perfectly in the corner of your shower so you can finally stop sitting everything on the ledge and hoping it doesn't topple over.

    Promising review: "This is the best corner shower caddy ever — and I have had several through the years. It fit together very easily. Shelves are quite large. I love the little horizontal 'railing' that keeps tall bottles from falling off. It is very sturdy and can hold quite a few large bottles." —Tracy R.

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

    5. small kitchen cart, which is basically a must-have for anyone with limited counter space. Now you can finally have a dedicated spot for all those appliances you use often, but not quite every day.

    Promising review: "I ordered this rack for my daughter whose over-crowded kitchen counter was limiting her food preparation space. This three-shelf rack with wheels was the perfect solution for her situation. The rack easily held her Instant Pot, Vitamix blender and Hamilton Beach food processor. The rack rolls easily underneath her counter without issue." —illustratedman

    Get it from Amazon for $29.22+ (available in three sizes and two colors).

    6. A set of clear plastic jars so you can keep essentials like cotton balls and Q-tips in their proper place instead of throwing them in random drawers and cabinets that you can never keep organized.

    Promising review: "I was a little unsure of how these jars/canisters were going to work, whether they'd be too big or small, but it turns out they're just what I was looking for. After many years of use, the old cotton ball and Q-tip containers my kids had were scratched and ready to retire. Now that they have a longer counter, these jars fit side by side with their daily needs at their reach. I bought a set of three glass ones originally, but hesitated to put them in their bathroom for fear of finding out that they broke the glass, so I went with these instead. They look very high-quality, very shiny, and they each hold a lot of items. I love looking at these jars. They make the counter look neat!"—Mushi2Anone

    Get a set from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in two sizes and a multipack).

    7. 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 $20.97 (available in seven colors).

    8. A toothbrush holder with extra space for toothpaste, hand soap, hair products, lotion, cotton rounds, or anything else you want to keep handy. No more scattering them all over the sink!!

    Promising review: "This product is exactly what I needed by my bathroom sink! It holds a couple of toothbrushes, the toothpaste, and the hand soap (which I ordered separately). I threw out the one I had that ended up getting yucky moldy stuff at the bottom. Now I have no worries. It's the simple things in life." —ChangingLeaves

    Get it from Amazon for $9.97+ (available in two colors and two styles).

    9. 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 $21.99+ (available in six colors).

    10. A super-slim storage cart you can slide between your bed and desk so you'll have a spot to organize all your random items ... and maybe even some snacks.

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $19.79 (available in three colors).

    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.

    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 $13.97.

    12. A storage strip to keep your brooms and mops off the floor and free up some much-needed space in your utility closet. It might even convince you to clean more, but no promises.

    Promising review: "Repeat customer! I purchased one to organize the garden tools (rake, hoe, cultivator, shovel, etc.) in our garage and by alternating the tops of the tools up/down, was able to fit them neatly in the holder. Liked it so much, going to install another next to it for the other items. The hooks are a nice feature to hold our gloves and a simple plastic bag to hold things when needed." —Rob C.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97 (available in four colors).

    13. A game-changing pan and pot lid organizer, because you're too grown to permanently store them on your stovetop.

    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." —L

    14. A set of airtight food storage containers with reusable chalkboard labels to have your cabinets looking so immaculate that even Khloé Kardashian would be jealous.

    Promising review: "Absolutely love these containers from Chef’s Path!! Have been searching for a good set for quite some time and am happy I stumbled upon these. I feel these containers are of a higher quality than others and the price is much more affordable. I really like the fact that the lid handles are made up of durable plastic. The assortment of sizes is a plus, they’re easy to stack one on another and are rather durable. The locking mechanism works well to seal but not difficult like others I’ve tried to open. The pen, chalkboard labels, and measuring spoon set are a great addition to the set. Everything you might need for pantry organization has been provided." —Manzi

    Get a set of 14 from Amazon for $43.99 (also available in sets of 4, 7, and 24).

    15. And a set of bestselling dividers so you can easily organize your sock drawer and keep it from becoming an endless black hole of mismatched pairs.

    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
