    43 Things Under $15 That'll Help You Be More Organized In Every Aspect Of Your Life

    It's the little things, like having a place to store your false lashes, making sure three people don't feed the dog three dinners, or not having to google measurement conversions when you're elbow deep in a recipe.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors.

Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A slim cutlery organizer here to prove that, yes! You do have room for all your cutlery in your tiny kitchen drawer! Scoot over, forks. I FINALLY bought this for my only kitchen drawer and it's made a huge difference.

    Elizabeth Lilly / BuzzFeed

    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 4 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

    2. A pen cup that just might be the perfect size for makeup brushes, manicure tools, and just about anything else that needs storing.

    Promising review: "Purchased for my daughter to use for makeup brushes and it’s perfect. Very good quality and a great price. Definitely recommend." —Tori Anderson

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in four colors).

    3. A set of measurement decals you can glance at rather than googling "how many teaspoons in a tablespoon" for the millionth time. (BTW, the answer is 3. And yeah I had to google that to know what to write.)

    Note that this kit includes just the decals and measurement labels, not the horizontal holders or hooks for the measuring cups and spoons. 

    Promising review: "Bought these for my mom. I applied them inside her baking cupboard and it makes doing conversions for recipes a breeze. So convenient." —Kelly C.

    Get them from Amazon for $13.99.

    4. And a magnetic air fryer cheat sheet so you can merely glance at this instead of googling the same thing over and over again. 

    Promising review: "Bought an air fryer several months ago which I haven't used a whole lot because it came with only a few recipes but not enough info on other items to cook. The Lotteli cheat sheet gives you cooking times and temperatures for a lot of your common everyday foods in a magnetized easy-to-read, two-sheet combo that fills in where air fryer pamphlet that came with the unit leaves out. I also bought an air fryer cookbook but this only comes with specific recipes, whereas the cheat sheet fills in the void for quick basic needs. Very happy with this purchase! 😁" —B. Frank Smith

    Get it from Amazon for $11.45 (available in two colors). 

    5. A purse organizer that'll help sort all your essentials without adding any weight to your bag. Then when it's time to switch bags, you can just move the organizer!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love my bag (basically it's a large open sack). While it has pockets on the outside, the inside has one zipper pocket on one side and two holders on the other side. So all my stuff is thrown in the middle. And I carry A LOT of stuff! This little holder is not that little and it holds A LOT without adding any weight to my bag. I also like that it has two zipper compartments so I can put personal stuff in there without everyone seeing it every time I open the bag. I'm not sure HOW LARGE other people's bags are that I read in other reviews that they say it slides around. The length of my bag is 16 inches and this thing fits comfortably in it. I've attached a BEFORE and AFTER picture. Seriously, for an extra $10 I now enjoy using my $250+ bag!" —michelmoba

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in 26 colors and three sizes).

    6. A Baby Yoda dishwasher magnet will keep the fam on the same page as to if that plate was licked clean or washed clean...very important! No more having to run a second cycle because of someone putting in a dirty plate!

    Calli Banana is a Flemington, New Jersey–based shop that specializes in decals. 

    Promising review: "I would give 10 stars if I could! These decals are awesome. I ordered a bunch for my fridge. They came in the mail so quickly...a few days after ordering. I had custom words made and Laura was so quick to respond to my messages. I’m ordering more for the rest of my house. I love her typeface and color options!" —ellenmomeara

    Get them from Calli Banana on Etsy for $1.50+ each (available in four heights and a variety of fonts).

    10. A vinyl plastic vaccine card sleeve with a resealable top to help keep THE accessory of 2021 in fighting condition well past this calendar year. It also has holes so you can attach it to a lanyard!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Perfect for safeguarding the CDC COVID-19 vaccine card. Just HATE that the CDC didn’t produce wallet-sized cards to begin with.The plastic and the zip lock are sturdy and can be attached to a lanyard. It’s definitely sized correctly for the CDC card. I pass these out to family and friends when they get their dose of vaccine. It’s necessary to protect the low quality cards with your vaccine batch number stickers." —B.

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $6.98 (also available in 5-, 10-, 20-, and 50-packs).

    11. An outlet shelf *just* large enough for your electric toothbrush. Here's to a tidier sink!

    Amanda / Amazon / Via amazon.com, Amazon Customer / Amazon / Via amazon.com

    FYI, it installs like a regular outlet cover. Of course except with the wonderful shelf. Can also be installed so the shelf is below the outlet.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this thing! I have much less clutter on my sink thanks to this. If there's anyone not sure if it will fit due to an object, all you need is 1.25 inches of space between the edge of your existing outlet plate and the piece of furniture. I have a GFCI with a standard wall plate." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in three colors). And check out a larger outlet shelf.

    12. A hanging bag organizer that'll keep the dust off your beauties and won't put stress on your purse handles like other organizing solutions.

    Amazon

    ::nervously calculates how much $$$ I've spent on handbags::

    Promising review: "Earlier today I put two hanging closet handbag holders in my walk in closet. I don't have 16 purses, but I do have more than eight. I put some other things in the leftover pockets — gloves, a couple of smaller clutch-style purses, and some scarves. The pockets are roomy and seem to be sturdy. I'm doin' the happy dance because they are just what I needed. Already I'm feeling more organized." —mochamarie

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in three colors).

    13. An OG hanging shoe organizer to file away everything from cleaning supplies to toiletries to scarves to leggings to actual shoes. An oldie but goodie 'til the end of time!

    Oh, and it's so cheap you'll buy it in multiples!!! Every door is an organizing opportunity! Plus it's a very easy way to ~train~ your loved ones into easily cleaning up after themselves.

    Promising review: "Sturdy, holds many items, so glad I got this! It hangs on back of bathroom door, so my counter and vanity stay neat. Holds more weight than you would expect." —dreamcatcher710

    Get them from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in six colors).

    15. A pack of cable clips so you can position all your power cords and chargers just as you need them. No more digging through a tangled mess under your desk or behind the TV.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These cable clips are great. I have several devices that I need to keep charged on a regular basis: iPads, cellphones, etc. So all you need to do is stick the clip to any surface with the sticker-type material on the bottom of the clip and it holds any charging wires perfectly. So once you unplug your phone your charger cable doesn’t fall to the floor." —Boyd

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $5.95.

    16. Cap holders so you can clear that shelf in your closet dedicated to your baseball hats.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought this for my husband. He collects hats and I didn't want all of his hats taking over the bedroom. I spent a lot of time looking for the perfect hat holder and (finally) went with these. I put them up on our bifold closet door. They were quick and easy to install. He loves the way all of his hats are in one place and easy to get at. I love that we no longer have hats all over. They make it a win-win!" —WeekendWarrior2017

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    17. A hanging jewelry organizer that'll keep your baubles separated and tidy so you can ACTUALLY wear all those great things you already have.

    amazon.com

    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 I 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).

    18. An easy-peasy pan organizer sturdy enough to hold your hefty Pyrex dishes in way less room in your cabinet. So much less jangling next time you feel like baking lasagna. As if you need another excuse to whip up some!

    horizontal rack with muffin tins and cutting boards slotted into it
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought two of these to replace a cheaper version that had moveable spacers. Though this one is not adjustable, it is by far better for my cutting boards, cookie sheets, and muffin tins. It is sturdier than its predecessor, which fell apart after a couple months. It fits well in a standard size cabinet and is a great help with keeping my stuff organized and within reach." —Grekrs

    Get it from Amazon for $13.97.

    19. A tie holder for storing as many as 20 ties and keeping them in tip-top shape in between wears. Go ahead, buy a couple. Dozen.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Does pretty good. Holds 20 ties each. Comes with two racks. It holds them pretty snugly. They seem durable. I've probably got 5–7 lbs of ties on each. Organizes them beautifully." —Jabbalaugh

    Get a pair from Amazon for $8.99.

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

    Amazon

    Trust me, loop scarf organizers are a pain to use! One is hanging up in my coat closet!

    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 that 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 $12.99 (available in four finishes).

    21. An adjustable closet doubler that does exactly what its name says to help fill that dead space below your hanging tops.

    Promising review: "This product has been one of my favorite Amazon finds, I’m not sure why I didn’t think of it sooner. It has doubled my closet space in my apartment where I can’t make any damage in terms of adding another permanent shelf — so this has been a perfect solution. It was easy to assemble and is sturdy. I’ve had it for a couple of weeks now with no issue. Your closet has to be pretty high for this to work or else your shirts above are going to get caught on the hangers below and for my case, some of my shirts are dragging on the floor — just keep this in mind when you’re thinking about purchasing." —Alex

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

    22. A cedarwood closet divider to help you better locate the stuff already in your closet. Look at you being so organized!

    23. A sturdy pants hanger that'll fit five pairs in one-fifth the space of regular hangers. 

    The DOIOWN S-Type Stainless Steel Pants Hangers
    Amazon

    Promising review: "These were exactly what I was hoping they would be. They are extremely sturdy (a little heavy but not too heavy), they held my pants in place (due to the S shape you can quickly see what is on the entire hanger without having to move things around), and they give my closet that extra space I desperately needed. I will also mention that they were packaged probably better than any other thing I've ever received. The care and time it took to package them that well was incredible. I would clearly buy again and plan to! :)" —Colleen Noyes

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    24. Fabric storage bags you can shove out-of-season clothes into and then under your bed, freeing up more room in your closet.

    Promising review: "I was concerned that these might be too flimsy, but they are sturdy and durable. I was pleased to find it zips from both ends. I decided to store sweaters, sweat shirts and jackets in one of them. They freed up room in my closet but are still easy to get." —Kindle Customer

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $9.34+ (available in six colors).

    25. A five-pack of silicone food huggers to take up far less room (and create less waste) to store those goodies in the fridge. Avocados are expensive! This'll help your tasty investment reach its full potential.

    The huggers on different fruits and vegetables as well as open containers
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I've used them for red onions, cucumber, bell peppers, tomatoes large and small, and the occasional banana. I LOVE them. I feel like the produce lasts longer than if stored in a plastic bag. I do occasionally have to trim a small slice off of the veggie before using the remaining portion. I have not had any issue with them retaining onion smell. I wash on the top rack in the dishwasher and when its finished just rinse the remaining dishwasher water out and dry with a towel before storing. I would definitely recommend buying these!" —A&D W

    Get a set of five from Amazon for $14.99 (available in five colors).

    26. A password book you should fill out IN PENCIL because who can keep up with all those passwords you constantly have to change and apparently are not strong enough for the robots unless it has something like 29478495734592713 on the end.

    the open password book
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "When we have so many internet addresses and passwords to remember, it gets really hard — especially when you get older and have trouble remembering what silly password you gave something. And, we are supposed to change or update passwords from time to time, so this is a great tool to help us do that. It certainly makes more sense than scribbling on a random piece of paper on your desk and then misplacing it. The trick, however, is to not misplace the book! I HIGHLY recommend this!!" —Carole P

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95.

    27. And a mini reading journal full of fun prompts as a step up from the note you've been keeping on your phone.

    the book cover
    amazon.com

    Surely I'm not the only one who keeps a note on their phone like this?!

    Promising review: "Love this journal. Very cute convenient size (especially if you are someone who writes small, or doesn't have too too much to say). I really love the star system for coloring in with a pen. There are also prompts throughout the journal like 'favorite author,' 'books I want to read,' 'quotes to remember,' etc. The back asks you to fill out the saddest book, funniest book, literary character you'd date, and a few others." —River

    Get it from Amazon for $9.

    28. A grocery bag carrier — keep it in your car so you can make a few less trips from the driveway to the house with your grocery store haul.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My husband and I live on the second story of an apartment with only stairs and we have to park farther away as we live in Chicago. This makes life sooo much easier. Yes the bags are still ridiculously heavy if you pack them on there, but being able to hold all the bags at once prevents my husband or I from cutting off the circulation in our arms from the plastic bags. The handle does hurt your hand when there is a lot of weight, but you can tape it up or put on gloves." —Alyssa R.

    Get two from Amazon for $13.95.

    29. A car garbage bag that'll help contain some of the mess that ends up on your back seat floor. Someone buy this for my Uncle Bill stat. But wait, he may need a bigger bag.

    30. A toothpaste squeezer/stand to help you get out every last drop without doing a manual squeeze twice a day. (Three times a day if you're that good.)

    toothpaste tube in the squeezer
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This was surprisingly easy to use — the crank is very easy to turn and it was actually fun to wind it up. It is weighted, so I imagine it would hold up a full tube, though I might be more inclined to use it with a half-full tube. It keeps a half-used tube of toothpaste very tidy on the shelf. (See photo.) It worked great with the dog's toothpaste, too! I bought a few more." —Laurel

    Get it from Amazon for $6.59.

    31. A bedside caddy to keep your nighttime essentials nearby, like your sleep mask and current read, to name a few things.

    32. A waterproof car seat organizer to hold most things your kid could possibly want on a road trip (except fast food). And it'll protect your seats from their tiny but destructive kicks because no matter HOW MANY times you tell them to stop kicking, they'll eventually start again.

    Promising review: "My 5-year-old was constantly junking up the backseat of my car with her toys and activities. This was a total game changer. It fits plenty of toys and activities, and keeps them right within her reach. I try to give her things to do for long car rides without having to immediately resort to putting a tablet in front of her. A $10 stock-up at Dollar Tree fills this right up and keeps her entertained for hours without making a complete mess of my car." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    33. A mountable sign that'll keep everyone in the household on the same page re: if the dog has been fed. Poor pup.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Very sleek and easy to use. It works great with multiple people in the household with busy schedules so we know the dogs and cats have been fed, and we don’t have to go around asking everyone if they have already fed them or not." —La Wanda

    Get it from Amazon for $7.72.

    34. A weekly budget planner for helping manage those expenses that feel like they're looming over your head. Sometimes just putting pen to (v organized) paper can help make the daunting things feel much more manageable!

    amazon.com

    And it's nondated, so you can start now in November instead of waiting 'til 2022.

    Promising review: "I love the monthly and weekly calendars. I always have a hard time keeping track weekly, but I do love the monthly format and that there are so many empty entry slots I can write whatever I need to in. I have a hard time categorizing my bills and love seeing them one by one and this gives me that flexibility." —Nicholas Lee

    36. An eyeliner organizer with 26 slots to help corral all your lippies or writing utensils. IMO, this is a far superior way to get the gang all together than a random drawer or cup.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Perhaps most importantly for anyone out there planning to go full Leslie Knope on these is that they're designed not to bleed through thin pages!

    Promising review: "Love, love these markers. I've been using these for three years and they are still going. Some of my friends have seen me using them and asked how they could get some! Love the fine lines they make — would use them as everyday pens if I wasn't afraid they'd run out." —Tracie

    Promising review: "Nice for color coding your notes. I use it to add project ideas and descriptions to put in my planner. When it don't get everything done, I just take if off and put on next week's pages. That way I don't have to rewrite on the next week's calendar page. Also use it on plastic sheet I taped to the right side of my laptop cover so that I can easily add notes on items and ideas found while surfing." —EarlyMorning

So if you scramble for something when traveling, it's probably in here.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this wallet. I needed a new travel wallet, and this holds everything I need all in one place, and it still closes nicely and stays flat! I can fit my boarding pass, passport, ID, credit cards, money, checked baggage tickets, receipts, and more in it, yet it doesn’t bulk up or look like an overstuffed mess. It's just amazing. The description says it only holds US money, but I just used the boarding pass flap to hold all my Japanese yen (¥), which are larger. I didn’t use the zippered pocket for coins as I much prefer a separate coin purse for that sort of thing. I definitely recommend to anyone who travels a lot!" —Anthony Luu

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in 37 colors).

    42. A pair of plastic grocery bag wranglers light enough to hang on a hook on your wall *or* inside your kitchen cabinet. Maybe your city has outlawed free plastic bags. Maybe your parents taught you to save every last one. Maybe both! Regardless, you've got a bunch.
