    1. An eyeglasses organizer that'll keep your pairs of specs way safer than stashed on top of your dresser or in a drawer. Sunglasses too!

    amazon.com

    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).

    2. A boot rack to finally keep your beauts from getting creased, crushed, or forgotten entirely in their tombs (aka, shoe boxes).

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love shoes...especially boots! I was keeping them in their original boxes, but the boxes started to collapse/break. Soon I just had them in a pile on the floor at the bottom of my closet. Sometimes I'd waste time digging for the matching pair I was hoping to wear. I've been wanting to buy the Boot Butler, but was hesitant because of the price. After some time and frustration (especially with boot season approaching) I bought the Boot Butler for myself. WHY DID I WAIT SO LONG?! I loved it so much, I bought a second set a couple months later and am now contemplating buying another. Yes, I have that many boots...don't judge. Other reviews mentioned how it really doesn't save on space. Well...I guess that just depends on how your closet is configured. Space saving or not, I love that my boots aren't in a pile anymore; that they are easy to find and see, and I don't have to shuffle huge plastic boot boxes around (an option I tried before and was not happy with)." —ZAR

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

    3. A battery organizer for parking all your loose power sources instead of letting them roll around in your junk drawer where you'll forget about them before they expire.

    amazon.com

    This *safely* holds 82 batteries of various sizes. You can store in a drawer or mount on a wall!

    Promising review: "Something so simple saved me an entire drawer's worth of space! We had a battery drawer in the den desk, but it was a mess! Opened battery packages, half of them had new batteries, other batteries floating around loose in the drawer all willy-nilly, all different sizes and brands mixed together. It was an eyesore and a pain every time I had to look for batteries. Now, thanks to this little helper, our batteries are organized and easy to find and grab, right inside the basement stairs doorway. The wattage tester is super helpful, and I was able to toss out half of the batteries we'd had that were dead or nearly dead from being old or accidentally put back with the new batts instead of into recycling. It feels a little thin and flimsy, but it just holds the batteries, you don't move or bend it, so it's moot. So glad I bought this; it's fantastic!!" —Amanda S. Michniewicz

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    4. A cotton swab–coralling flower — it'll look great on your bath vanity and keep swabs from getting soggy before you can use them.

    amazon.com

    It's also great for toothpicks!

    Promising review: "I love this little holder. I have two in black and green! You can remove the little florets to make room for more cotton swabs. Do not overload this thing, or you will struggle with getting it out. I only fill about 10 at a time. This may not be ideal for people with a large household, but I don't mind refilling it weekly. I usually put about 10 swabs in. I like that it keeps my cotton swabs sanitary with the domed lid. Looks very cute on the countertop!" —ag.fabozzi

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    5. A pair of plastic grocery bag wranglers light enough to hang on a hook on your wall *or* inside your kitchen cabinet.

    amazon.com

    Get them from Amazon for $8.59.

    Want a sturdier option? Consider this cabinet door bag holder. Alternatively, you can stuff them in an empty facial tissue box!

    6. Clip-on shelf dividers as a topple-free solution for keeping your sweatshirts, gym clothes, and other drawer overflow in neat piles. (Those hoods always mess up other sweatshirt organizing options!)

    amazon.com

    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.

    7. A travel-friendly pill organizer or compact weekly organizer that'll be solid alternatives to a bunch of bottles rattling around.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review (for travel one): "I like that even with all my meds in it, it is flat and packs nicely. I organized my pills into AM and PM and stored them in small ziplock pill bags. Two bags fit nicely inside each pouch. Instead of relying on the numbers 1–8, I used my labeler and named them the days of the week. There is also room for other pills in the mesh pouch on the side. I originally bought it for my cruise but decided to test it on a shorter trip. I love it!" —Robbie Black

    Promising review (for weekly one): "I’d been keeping all my meds in their original prescription or OTC containers and just throwing those in my backpack or purse so that I wouldn’t have to carry those huge, long pill organizers. This one is the perfect size; it’s not so small that you can only fit very few pills in each compartment, and it’s not so big that it becomes inconvenient to carry around. The rotating feature is cool, too! I’m absolutely going to be buying more in different colors!" —Amira Uzi

    Get them from Amazon: travel organizer for $8 or weekly organizer for $6.66+ (available in three colors)

    8. And a diabetic insulin cooler bag for daily, weekly, or travel use to make sure everything you need is in one tidy place.

    amazon.com

    Includes two re-freezable 6 oz. gel packs for up to 12 hours of cold time and has closed cell foam insulation throughout the bag to protect supplies and medication.

    Promising review: "Needed this for a recent trip. I was shocked to see this in person. This bag is very sturdy, very well constructed and has a good look. The pockets are great and able to accommodate all of my insulin pens. I had room for 3 Tresiba Pens, 3 Humalog Pens, 1 Trulicity Pen, enough room for lancets, pen needles, and lancet device. The cold packs keep this cold for a really long time. I didn't have any issues going through TSA with this. But, I am always prepared just in case. I take a lot of other medication as well so I think I am going to get this in a different color to hold my pills while traveling. Because I will have even more room with the ice packs removed. This was an awesome purchase and high quality." —Outlaw Cash

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95 (available in three colors).

    Psst, have an epi pen? Check out this travel organizer.

    9. A scarf organizer that'll make it easy to slip your accessories on and off — unlike the organizers of the loop variety!

    amazon.com

    I own a loop scarf organizer and it's a pain to get scarves on and off of it. I clearly need to ~upgrade~.

    Promising review: "I have tried several different scarf hangers that were felted to prevent slipping, but the openings were mostly too small so the scarves ended up very wrinkled and were a pain to pull through the holes. It's pretty easy to slip each scarf on and off the rods. They are less wrinkled than on the other hangers I have used. It is very sturdy construction of metal, which makes it heavier but I guess more durable. The coating is pretty. The only negative I have is that there are two tiny imperfections in the coating which might snag some of my delicate scarves. I made sure to put my delicate scarves on the side that didn't have any flaws." —William Spillers

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in four finishes).

    10. A grid organizer for holding on tight to everything from a pen to ear buds to USB cords.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I can and have packed cords and converters for iPad, iPhone with Mophie battery pack, Kindle, Nook, electric shaver, and ear buds on this handy device and I think I can or have squeezed AA batteries in a 4-pack holder for a couple of flashlights I carry with me on trips. I bought another one for my wife for her phone, Nook, etc. She has more room than I do, but I'm sure we will find some way to fill it. I had been using 1-qt freezer bags for each cord/charger, labeling them distinctly, and then putting them all in a large 1- or 2-gallon freezer gallon bag to keep them together before I got these. It helped with organization, but this Grid-It does a better job, making it easier to find the cord/charger I need." —Bookman McCoy

    Get it from Amazon for $13.60+ (available in three colors).

    11. A bra organizer to keep your cups in shape and help you tell the difference between your ivory T-shirt bra and ivory lacy bra in a snap.

    containerstore.com

    15. A tea bag holder that can afford you some major kitchen cabinet room and help you keep track of how many bags you have left of your faves.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I got this out of desperation for regaining room in my tea/coffee cabinet. Yes, we have a kitchen cabinet devoted just to all of our tea and coffee, and we were running out of space very quickly. I got this smaller version because I knew it would fit without having to adjust the shelves. Can I saw how much I love this? I was able to empty so many boxes from the cabinet, it was not even funny. My only complaint (others have mentioned this as well) is that you cannot fit a whole box in one drawer. I worked around this by designating one of the drawers as 'overflow' with a few different types of tea in it. Also, note that this is only good for teas that come in the envelopes. If you have loose tea bags, they may not work too well in this." —Kitty

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in three colors).

    Prefer a different caffeine source? Perhaps a K-cup organizer would be of interest.

    16. A sports caddy to park in your garage and then establish a rule that ALL the sports balls go in here when not in use, lest someone slip and fall on a stray tennis ball!

    containerstore.com

    Promising review: "I was searching for a way to organize my kids' sports equipment. I love this bin — all our bats, balls, and helmets have a place to go. And I like that it is on wheels so I can move it around my basement. I'm thrilled with my purchase!" —JustJen

    Get it from The Container Store for $49 or a similar one from Walmart for $52.99.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Works well under the sink. I bought this for my daughter to help clear some of her clutter in a small bathroom. Worked like a charm!" —Tina F.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95.

    18. Fishing rod racks for your garage doors as a *legendary* use of space.

    amazon.com

    Hardware included for easy, no tool installation on standard garage doors. If the door is a hard insulated or wood door, self tapping screws are not included but can be shipped at no cost. Can also be installed on walls and ceilings. Give the inventor of these racks an award because they are damn clever!

    Promising review: "I love these racks. They work just like they say. I have two sets with all of my best poles. It works with my surf rods and with my casting rods wonderfully. I did have to move my hurricane braces down a couple of inches from the top edge of the panels. That was my door installer's fault for trying to save on screws. I have no problems with mine falling out and I use my garage like a front door." —amo

    Get them from Amazon for $35 (available in two sizes).

    19. A hanging jewelry organizer with necklace loops so your fave statement piece won't be a tangled mess next time you decide to wear it.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I need to order a second one. I've recently become obsessed with jewelry, and the little holder I have had was a hot mess with necklaces falling everywhere and bracelets and rings in several locations. It's nice that I now have pockets for the smaller things and the Velcro hooks for the longer necklaces." —Me!

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

    20. A stud earring tray you'll actually be able to easily grab the day's pair from, unlike pretty countertop jewelry organizers.

    Promising review: "Love it!!!! Most organizers don't come with straps, works perfectly in my 2004 Subaru Impreza wagon. Great item. Fits everything I had in my previous organizer and more. The straps make it nice to keep it secured." —Accurit

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

    amazon.com

    Please don't hand people sticky coins :(.

    Promising review: "I have a 2005 BMW X3 that I love, but cubby space is scarce. This gave me that little extra space I had been looking for, plus a cupholder, without being clunky or in the way. It slipped right in on the passenger side and has been the perfect place to drop my phone, change, and other little things. It has a sturdy build and stays in place even without the foam inserts it came with. I would highly recommend this item." —tstark

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99 (available in eight varieties).

    24. Honeycomb organizers — they may keep things just tidy enough in a sock or underwear drawer that never seems to regurgitate the item you want when you need it.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love that feeling of looking at something I just cleaned or a drawer I cleaned out, so I was over the moon after I organized my 4-year-old's sock drawer, underwear, and then my own drawer for the same. It is so much nicer to put socks and underwear away after doing laundry and no more hunting for the ones I want because they are organized by colors. My sons socks can fit two pair per slot as well as underwear and I can fit two pairs of underwear in each spot as well. Great deal on these and would buy again!" —L

    25. Or foldable boxes to help organize most anything you'd throw in your clothing drawers.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "The first row has adjustable dividers, you can use them to keep odd shapes bottles or do what I do, use it for my nail stamper, dotting tools, drying drops on one side and foam wedges and nail pens on the other. Depending on the kind of polishes you own you can fit more than 48 polishes I'm here and it looks way neater easily tucked under your vanity instead of baskets and baskets of polishes you have to hunt through. Definitely buying another one." —Clouds

    28. A medicine cabinet shelf to *securely* fit more stuff behind your bathroom mirror without causing an avalanche every time you open it.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This fits perfectly on the bottom of my medicine cabinet. It is very sturdy plastic with a great design. I can't believe how many jars, tubes, etc., it has managed to corral. Everything looks so neat! If they make a smaller one for upper cabinet shelves, I'm buying it. Wonderful little product!" —Alex

    Get it from Amazon for $10.48+ (available in four varieties).

    29. A false eyelashes beauty organizer that'll keep all your fluttery LEWKS in good standing.

    30. A ~floating~ kitchen utensils organizer to hold all the stuff that won't fit in a drawer.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.87.

    31. An accordion-like pots and pan organizer that'll easily adjust with your growing organizing needs.

    amazon.com

    The length expands to 30" and each rod is 6.5" tall to accommodate taller items. Synthetic rubber bumpers protect your delicate surfaces.

    Promising review: "This holder is amazing! Finally, a solution to corral all of these freaking pot and pan lids! It expands perfectly to accommodate my 30" wide cabinet. Actually, it can go a little further than that but it gets less stable when you exceed the maximum width. It also works great for smaller cabinets. I tried it out in a pull-out drawer that's approximately 24" and it serves it's purpose well. Although I'm very happy with this organizer, I must admit I do find the price to be a little steep for what it is. However, it was the only one I located that expanded this wide. It also looks beautiful, seems durable, and doesn't look like it's going to rust. Therefore, I found it to be worth the investment." —Nurse Bex

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

    32. A *nice looking* dog feeder with plenty of space inside to keep some dog food or toys you've taken out of rotation.

    amazon.com

    Lid top slides open and latches closed for storage. Includes two 32 oz. stainless-steel bowls.

    Promising review: "This pet food station is amazing! My dog has the smelliest food and it stays cute inside the box and it’s odor-free in my kitchen! I love that the box locks on the side and that you can clean under the bowls so that water and food don’t get trapped. Great purchase!" —JMC

    33. Or if you went full throttle with the economy size dog food bag, this airtight food vault will keep kibble fresh AF.

    amazon.com

    This thing's so legit that my former roommate's dog could tell the difference between kibble kept in this or kibble that'd been in a gallon ziplock for a few weeks at her grandma's house!

    Get it from Amazon for $23.34+ (available in three sizes).

    34. A heavy-duty shelving unit with a weight capacity of 350 lbs. per shelf (!!!) in case you're a Costco devotee who buys stuff like soda, cleaning supplies, canned food, and other items in bulk.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This shelving unit relieved a huge amount congested kitchen storage space, allowing me to move less-utilized items into another room, like all those extra rolls of paper towels from the bulk pack, the pie pans, stockpot, large soup and sauce cans, bag of potatoes. It helped motivate spring cleaning and inspired meals that would have been a hassle having to dig through densely packed cupboards. While I can't speak to how well this product would hold up in an professional setting, it's quite well engineered to handle any home use I can throw at it; the construction feels solid and professionally styled." —Woodland Dan

    Get it from Amazon for $54.99+ (available in three sizes, two finishes).

    35. Packing cubes you'll rely on if you're fitting your kids' clothes in your own suitcase, or going on the backpacking trip of a lifetime and organization is *key.*

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I used these on a recent trip to Scandinavia and they helped me keep my backpack nicely organized. The cubes are really floppy but they'll take shape as you fill them. I liked that I could fold them or squish them into my pack after filling them. I didn't have any problems with the zippers and none of my cubes tore after two weeks of regular use. The zippers don't have a high-quality feel to them, but they opened and closed without snagging." —Quincy C.

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $20+ (available in six colors).
