    1. An under-cabinet macramé produce hammock for giving your avocados a place to rest until they're ripe enough to use, clearing a lot of counter space in the process.

    2. An 18-inch over-the-door rack that'll DRASTICALLY increase storage space whether you're de-cluttering your pantry, or creating one (tiny-apartment dwellers, I know the struggle).

    3. A stackable bottle rack so you can take down the "DO NOT ENTER" sign on that one cabinet that's guaranteed to pummel you with bottles and thermoses every time you open it (and fit more bottles in that cabinet while you're at it).

    4. A two-tier corner shelf so you can get small appliances and spices up off the counter and have space to prep a meal without needing to move your toaster out the way for the third time today.

    5. Similarly, a three-tier cabinet corner shelf for turning your teetering tower of plates into a space-optimized oasis where different-sized dishes can live together in harmony.

    6. A game-changing pan and lid organizer because teetering pan pyramids are an art form all their own, but one that can prematurely scratch and ding your cookware.

    7. Or a stainless-steel accordion-style rack that adjusts in length to easily organize pans, lids, and cookie sheets of all sizes in cabinets or on countertops.

    10. A magnetic rack that'll keep the spices you use most often organized, accessible, and off your already-crowded countertop. To install this floating shelf, just stick it to any metal surface and you're done!

    13. A magnetic knife strip that'll organize your cooking tools and clear out some drawer space with the added benefit of making your kitchen look like a 5-star restaurant!

    16. A do-everything Always Pan designed to replace eight pieces of cookware so you can streamline your collection. Saute, steam, serve, and so much more with this nonstick beauty, which comes with a lockable lid, steamer basket, pouring spout, and a nesting spatula with a built-in rest.

    17. A space-saving drawer organizer so you can actually find the cutlery you need when you need it instead of rummaging through a pile of potentially painful pointy things.

    18. An Instant Pot Ultra that does the work of seven kitchen appliances in one compact cooker, saving you invaluable kitchen space while making it easy to whip up delectable meals fast.

    19. An easy-to-install under-cabinet wine rack because tiny kitchens don't usually come equipped with wine fridges but you still deserve a stylish place to store your bottles.

    31. A set of collapsible colanders because every time you're not cooking pasta or washing vegetables your bulky strainer is just sitting there mocking you with how much cabinet space it's taking up.

    32. A tiered basket drawer organizer you can stack one on top of the other to make the most out of narrow cabinets and pantries. No more strategically stacking bags of tortilla chips and loaves of bread to prevent a food avalanche.
