    1. Under-the-shelf baskets to help you squeeze in some more storage in otherwise-dead pantry space.

    Promising review: "I ordered these baskets to help me utilize the few inches of space under the shelves in my kitchen cabinets. I have a LOT of baking and mixing containers, big holiday dishes, and miscellaneous cooking supplies that need to be organized in a more useful way. These baskets are sturdy and and hold some heavy serving platters and other kitchen gadgets. I like them and feel they are worth the price. Check the measurements to be sure they will work with your specific cabinet shelves and will hold the items you have in mind." —V. H.

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $30.99.

    2. An adjustable drawer organizer perf for small kitchen tools — you can reorganize them as many times as you'd like.

    The set includes a non-slip silicone mat that you can cut to fit your drawer and 15 repositionable pieces so you can get the perfect fit for your utensils.

    Promising review: "It has completely organized my utensil junk drawer. Turns out I had a lot of crap in there that I either never used, or was just garbage and needed to be tossed. The base mat is simple to apply...just cut it to fit your drawer. Then arrange your utensils however you prefer, and separate them with the rubber wedges." —Mercedes J.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in four colors).

    3. Or a slim cutlery organizer — my friend adores it for freeing up drawer space...and you will, too!

    No really, my friend Alyse owns this and she has every kitchen tool imaginable (as a food writer), so it comes in handy!

    Promising review: "Yes, this little utensil tray is really that good! I went from using 12 inches of horizontal space in a lovely but huge wooden utensil tray to about using about four inches (whatever the width of this godsend is). It stores my butter knives, steak knives, spoons, forks, and a slew of little teaspoons. I'd guess that the max capacity for each slot is about 10 pieces. For example, I fit four butter knives and four steak knives into the first/knife slot easily, with good wiggle room. This is such a great design. Using this tray opened up about half of my 18-inch wide drawer, which allowed me to decompress the other drawers in my kitchen a bit. I highly recommend this item. It's worth every penny." —Kathleen Cooke

    Get it from Amazon for $18+ (also available for knives, and utensils and gadgets).

    4. A vertical boot rack to help keep your precious babes in excellent shape instead of in a pile on your closet floor.,

    Promising review: "It was easy to put together and I have a huge sense of relief knowing that my precious boots are not slumped over getting creases. As a boot aficionado and lover of organization, this makes me smile every time I look at it. You won't regret this purchase!" —Antoinette

    Get a rack for five pairs of boots from Amazon for $69.99.

    5. Stackable wine racks that'll easily to chill multiple bottles at once!

    Promising review: "We have now ordered four four-packs of these racks to store wine in our open kitchen shelving. The racks fit perfectly in our space and allow us to store more bottles more conveniently than without the racks. We love that they are clear and we can easily pull bottles out to view their labels." —inthewoods

    Get a pair (enough to hold six bottles) from Amazon for $22.99.

    6. An expandable under-sink organizer — it won't be pretty, but it'll finally put everything where you can get to it!

    Measures 15''L x 11.25''W x 15''H and can expand to 25"L.

    Promising review: "I'm so glad I bought this. I have a 24" vanity in my bathroom and this fit perfectly. I have it extended to about 23" and it holds sturdy, though I can see if you were to extend it to its full length it gets weak in the middle. I liked it so much that I ordered another one for the kitchen. I got some clear bins to help organize bottles and other goodies I keep in the bath." —Marlene R.

    Get it from Amazon for $20.87 (available in two finishes) or a similar one from Walmart for $19.99.

    7. A door hamper with a funny message to draw attention to putting dirty duds where they belong instead of on the floor.

    Get it from Amazon for $17.96.

    8. A glasses organizer so you can finally see all your sunnies options at once without scratching them beyond use in a drawer.

    Promising review: "This is exactly what I needed. I kind of collect glasses, now that I discovered Eye Buy Direct. Before this, they were lined up on my bathroom counter, always in danger of scratching each other and often getting hit with hair spray and collecting dust. This organizer is perfect for protecting my frames. It has drawers that move in and out easily, and dividers between each pair of glasses. Because it's clear, you can find the pair you want quickly. Love it, but have already outgrown it. Now I have to buy another." —Indydi

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in four styles).

    9. A flashy pencil cup that'll draw attention to *exactly* where your writing utensils live.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    10. Cable clips to keep those pesky cords RIGHT where you want them.

    Promising review: "These cable clips are exactly what I need. What I like the best about them now is what caused me to almost not purchase them. They have a double backed tape on them. You pull off the tape cover and stick them permanently where you want them. Initially I did not think I'd like that, BUT I love it. These do not move. They hold the cable securely. I even have one stuck to the side of my office PC with a micro-usb cord through it so I can charge my tablet on top of the PC and never have to search for the cord or make sure it is the right one. Since the cable clip is stuck to side of the PC, it is always there. Cool!!! I highly recommend these." —RCS

    Get six clips from Amazon for $8.83.

    11. A food storage lid organizer — it may have you cursing at the sky because you wish you knew these things existed decades ago.

    Holds up to 38 lids (26 small and 12 large), made of BPA-free plastic, hand-wash only, measures 11"x7.75"x3.75".

    Promising review: "We have tons of Tupperware and the lids flying all over used to drive me bananas. This is one of those simple products that makes a big difference. It has three compartments to hold three different sized lids. We must have at least 25 lids in there and they all fit great. Kind of life changing!" —Jack

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

    12. A set of magnetic interlocking bins to help you jigsaw puzzle your way into neat home office drawers.

    Promising review: "I have really narrow drawers in my house so most of the drawer organizers on Amazon are too large. These are customizable so I was able to organize my little drawers." —chloenc

    Get an eight-piece set from Amazon for $13.70.

    13. Clip-on dividers for wooden shelves to keep piles of sweaters and linens from turning into a closet avalanche.

    Promising review: "These are great. I use them to separate the piles of sweaters, sweatshirts, and T-shirts on the shelf above the hanging bar in my closet. It helps me keep them nicely separated, even when I'm lazy about keeping the piles straight. I'm happy with my purchase!" —Maddie

    Get a set of eight from Amazon for $35.99.

    14. A sock drawer organizer that'll help you zero in on your lucky pair that much faster.

    Promising review: "I live in the Pacific Northwest where our winters aren't particularly frigid, but they ARE cold and damp, so I tend to wear a lot of wool or thicker acrylic knit socks. This is exactly what I needed. Size is super — and it's easy to put together once I figured out that the 'buttons' are easier to get into the 'slots' if you DON'T try to push them but instead 'rock' them from side to side." —L. Mountford

    Get a pair from Amazon for $10.99.

    15. A pair of pretty letter sorters you could alternatively use to store your trusty makeup palettes.

    Get them from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in four colors).

    16. A ~colorful~ wall organizer so each member of the fam can have their own pocket.

    Promising review: "I purchased this to use as a part of our family's kitchen command center; this is in a highly visible area of our house so I wanted something that was functional, low-profile, and not an eyesore. This organizer is PERFECT. There are enough pockets for each of our four family members, plus a few more that I've designated for bills and other correspondence. It helps keep the paper clutter off the counters and easily accessible for each of us. I love the clear front pocket where I keep my second grader's 'specials' calendar so he can easily see whether he has PE, art, music, or computer lab on any given school day. I like the bright colors; they help to liven up my kitchen but aren't at all tacky. Each folder is removable so the colors can go in any order you want." —Heather

    Get it from Amazon for $11.22+ (available in three color combos).

    17. A snazzy stud earring display, lest you have to replace yet another back.

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $14 (also available in copper).

    18. A folding trunk organizer for holding all the essentials while leaving plenty of room for luggage, grocery bags, or even subwoofers.,

    It's collapsible and has side pockets and Velcro strips on the bottom so it won't slide around during sharp turns.

    Promising review: "I've had this catch-all in the back of my 2015 Ford Escape for almost a year now. It's great. Got my little gas can and emergency kits in there, along with tiedowns and bungie cords. As you can see, it fits perfectly next to my subwoofer, so I'm really happy about that. It keeps my cargo area looking tight. The Velcro on the bottom keeps it in place." —DarkJamie

    Get it from Amazon for $12.67.

    19. A genius tablet holder that'll also keep your most-used kitchen utensils near and dear.

    Promising review: "I use this in the area where I do my mixing and assembling of recipes. It holds my recipe file contained in my iPad just fine. Plus I keep my kitchen calculator there so it's handy. The utensils I use in mixing are there, always handy. I like mine so much that I've bought another as a gift." —wiseraz

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $60.

    20. A corner shelf to make the most of your kitchen cabinets.

    Promising review: "We purchased this to help store our Corel dishes. We are able to fit more than 20 plates on each shelf. The shelf can easily hold the weight of our plates. It also has adjustable legs in case you need to adjust the level." —Chance1117

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99.

    21. A sturdy purse hanger you could also use for camisoles and tanks.

    Promising review: "I use this hanger for camisoles, not for ties and belts. Although it takes up a wider amount of space in my closet to do this, I am happy with how it's working out. The hanger is sturdy, so it doesn't tip or rock and I can quickly add or remove my tops. I have tried other approaches for these tops, because I have many, and so far this has been my best option." —Valerie K.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.78.

    22. A skinny storage tower for handling some serious weight wherever you stick it, like the kitchen, bathroom, laundry room....,

    Promising review: "It may not be beautiful, but it is a great addition to a tiny kitchen. I recently moved, and my new house has no pantry space. No closets or cubbies to convert. Just one tiny cabinet that I didn't need for my kitchen tools. This rolling pantry helps so much. I just shoved my fridge over a couple of inches, and it fit perfectly. It may not be huge, but helped so much with space. It is very sturdy and holds canned goods like a pro." —Kim Y

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (also available in 5-tier).

    23. A rotating makeup organizer to track down your favorite eye cream in a whirl.

    Get it from Walmart for $26.98.

    24. A mesh over-the-door organizer for bringing some order to all sorts of collections from hats and gloves to bottles of cleaning supplies to pantry snacks.,

    Promising review: "The pocket size is more than adequate for cleaning bottles in various sizes. The over-the-door hooks are sturdy but flat so they don't rub my door frame. There are no bottom hooks on this. I was fine with that because the weight of the cleaning bottles weighs mine down so it doesn't swing when I open the door. I love the large mesh pockets." —Smiley

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

    25. An over-the-door hanger with 14(!!!) hooks so no one can complain about having nowhere to hang their towel instead of tossing it on the bathroom floor.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.40.

    26. A horde of spice strips to avoid your pot boiling over while you're looking for the right dash of something. Who's got ~thyme~ for that?

    Promising review: "Love these! Just put them up and can't believe how much easier it is to get at my spices. 👌 I used Command strips on the backs instead just to make sure I could take them off without leaving any residue behind or having to use screws. So far, I'm really happy with them!" —Ashley

    Get a set of six strips (which can hold 30 jars total) from Amazon for $12.87.

    27. A multitasking shirt hanger to file away six shirts in the vertical space of one.,

    Promising review: "I was looking for a hanger for my sleeveless tops and this fit the bill perfectly. Coated arms hold the tops in place. Glad I purchased two!" —Formatting Junkie

    Get it from Amazon for $6.80.

    28. And pants hangers and skirt hangers — it can do the same (incredibly helpful) thing for whipping your closet into shape without tossing garments you adore.,

    The Kondo method is *hard.*

    Get them from Amazon: three pants hangers for $26.99 and two skirt hangers for $9.99

    And check out some similar hangers for pants and scarves.

    29. And a complete closet organizing system to do the job of permanent shelves inside an unfinished closet.

    Promising review: "This is great. I tripled my storage capacity on the back wall of my closet. I also cut down the old 8' section of shelving and integrated it into this shelving system with some extra brackets from a local hardware store. No part of this unit touches the floor like the cheaper version of this unit does. It is very sturdy. I had studs on 16" centers so this unit was perfect. I didn't have to drill new holes in the hanging bracket and most of the verticals caught studs, as well. I wish I had bought this sooner." —Edward F.

    Get it from Amazon for $104.99.

    Even Monica Gellar would be wowed by your organized home!
