    The 28 Products You Need If You're Serious About Organizing Your Kitchen

    Time to show all those loose K-Cup pods and sandwich bags who's boss.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A cabinet door organizer so you can really flex some "I've got my life together" vibes when you open a cabinet and pull out the aluminum foil without pulling eight of its friends out with it.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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 $15.87.

    2. A lazy Susan turntable for your pantry or fridge that will make storing and perusing your condiment stash so much more painless, since you can access the Sriracha without ketchup, mustard, and a half-eaten tub of frosting trying to vie for your attention first.

    Promising review: "Our fridge is extremely deep and we’re constantly 'losing' or forgetting what items we have in the back, but not anymore! The nonstick pad works great to keep heavy or large items from falling off, and with a touch of a finger, you can completely spin around. I’m so happy with this product, I’ll be purchasing more for other areas of my house:-)" —Moorefoto17

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99 (available in two colors).

    3. A slim, space-saving cutlery drawer organizer for anyone who is looking to tame the jostling mess of spoons and forks once and for all *and* make it that much easier to put their cutlery away.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    4. A 3D-printed appliance cord organizer you can discreetly attach to the backs of your larger kitchen appliances to keep the cords from becoming a veritable jungle on your already limited counter space.

    Promising review: "Received this super fast! And it works amazing!!! I don’t have to worry about my cord to my mixer just bunched up or wrapped around the base. Went on super easy, very durable from what I can tell. And the cord easily clips into place. I love how much this is helping me save space! Thank you again!!" —Cat Cisneros

    Get it from 3D Home Solutions on Etsy for $10 (available in three colors).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "We have old cupboards, without the drawers that pull out to make access easier. Before we got this rack, our pots and pans were a jumble in a cupboard beneath the cook top. We have so much more space now that the skillets are stacked on this rack. A side benefit is that the nonstick pans don't get scratched because they aren't stacked inside one another. We love it." —Susan E.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.97.

    6. A four-tier slim wheeled organizer for my personal favorite kind of storage: the ~sneaky~ kind. This easily navigates tight spaces and gives you some extra room to store go-tos like condiments, laundry supplies, and bathroom accessories.

    Psst — lots of reviewers use this for their bathrooms and laundry spaces, too!

    Promising review: "This is pretty fantastic. I had the exact amount of space needed to put this little pantry between my refrigerator and cabinets. It was easy to install and holds quite a lot of stuff. I put about 24 bottles of water and juice and some cereal and I still had space. Highly recommend it for small spaces." —SIMARA

    Get it from Amazon for $30.77

    7. A set of basic kitchen canisters perfect for whatever goods you use most, whether it's sugar, rice, coffee, tea bags, or leftover Halloween candy you've been using as your designated after lunch ~treat~.

    Promising review: "Very happy with these canisters so far! We wanted a nice set that would look good with our coffee setup. A set of four was perfect for us.

    A reviewer pulls out their drawer to reveal three sponges, four magic erasers, two handheld scrub brushes, one dish brush, four folded dish cloths, and a folded drying pad all neatly arranged
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are nice pieces that helped me organize underneath my bathroom sink! They fit perfectly! After organizing everything, I was so surprised I had so much more room that I grabbed more items out of the linen closet to fill it up. I still have a lot of room left. I bought these based off the high ratings and they hold true. (This is Brad's wife.)" —Brad J. Leahy

    Get it on Amazon for $25.97+ (also available in bronze).

    9. A sneaky little K-Cup storage drawer to neatly hide all your coffee pods and accoutrements, and also give your Keurig a little kitchen throne to put all the other appliances in their place.

    Each of these holds up to 36 standard-sized K-Cups.

    Promising review: "I am so glad I got this. It makes for such great streamlined storage. Keeps things tidy and neat, and also helps me keep track of how many cups I have left to determine whether or not I need to add to my grocery list. It is very sturdy and I fit my machine on top. The top is very durable, hard plastic and does not buckle with the weight of the machine filled with water on top." —tunisianswife

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in nine styles).

    10. Plus a tea organizer to streamline all those bulky boxes and give you a nice, neat way to peruse your tea options in the morning without half the cabinet falling on you (curse you, Earl Grey Rose tea box, I will have my revenge).

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Some reviewers drilled holes in it or used Command strips to mount it to the wall!

    Promising review: "I have an ridiculous amount of tea (loose-leaf and bagged). This product worked marvelously! It lives up to its promise of holding over 150 tea bags (if you utilize the bottom drawers as well)! It looks very nice on my counter. I've even been able to stack my little tins of loose leaf tea on top and beside it to create a nice little tea corner." —jcbrown

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99 (available in three colors).

    11. A set of customizable spice labels so you can have a much more organized, clear sense of what spices you actually *have*, both encouraging you to actually use them and saving you from accidentally buying repeats. Also......... this is a full LOOK.

    Three jars of spices with the labels parsley, garlic powder, and crushed red pepper

I love how she sent a picture of them to me beforehand to make sure they were to my liking and she even sent me a second sheet of labels for free! I would definitely recommend buying from her to anyone." —maceyriley

    Psst — a lot of people use this to safely store pet food, too!

    Promising review: "We have three kids and a very small kitchen with very little cabinet/counter space!!! We used to keep our cereal boxes on top of our refrigerator, but I've been trying to de-clutter, and also come up with a solution for our kids to be able to get their own cereal in the mornings. THIS IS IT!!!! It looks great on our counter and we have very little space, so it fits just right! This has been the perfect solution to giving our kids the independence they need to get their own breakfast! It has been a lifesaver!!! Love it!!!" —tenle

    Get it from Amazon for $38.69+ (available in four colors and also as a single dispenser).

    13. A set of stackable fridge drawers so you never reach in for a seltzer and have three bags of shredded cheese and an apple fall out on you again. The transparency of these is also great because it reminds you to eat your fruits + veggies before they go bad!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Excellent organization system! I once opened the fridge often, always looking for something I hadn't seen the last time I checked. The thing is — I often found something new because it just wasn't organized in a functional way. Now, with this system, I find what I'm looking for the first time. And when a bin is empty, I know I need to buy more of that product and just ask my smart home to add that item to my shopping list. Very grateful for the sense of calm and control that this fridge organization system has given me, and for all of the food that is no longer going bad in the back of the fridge!" —Chelsea T.

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $28.99.

    14. Or a set of produce saver storage containers designed with special vents to keep your fruits and veggies fresh longer — if you buy several of them and use them to store all your various produce each week, it gives your the contents of your entire fridge a *much* calmer, more streamlined look.

    Inside of a fridge with various clear containers full of vegetables and fruit
    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

    Hi, that's my fridge up above, and also proof to my parents that I have eaten a vegetable this year, thank you very much!! Every week when I grocery shop I just pull my produce outta the bags and stick them right into these babies. They really do keep them fresh a whole lot longer — I never ever have to throw fruit and veggies away before next week's grocery shop. But what I love is that it's really organized the inside of my fridge to a degree where I'm never struggling to find anything. Wish I'd invested in these years ago! 

    Promising review: "LOVE LOVE LOVE these! We buy only organic produce which does not tend to last very long and when you pay as much as we do for organic you don't want it going bad so fast. My favorite thing about these is that it keeps my lettuce crisp and fresh for weeks not days. I've been able to buy bunches of lettuce and keep them in the fridge for several weeks. I keep the second container for strawberries, asparagus, blueberries, etc. and it keeps them fresh for way longer now. Not only that but it prevents them from molding after only a few days so I'm not worried about having to eat my strawberries in two days now. Will definitely be buying more in the future. Totally worth every penny and super easy to wash and dry." —Jessica

    Get it from Amazon for $11.30+ (available in multiple sizes and sets).

    15. Plus a set of fully customizable waterproof stickers designed for fridge use, so you can neatly organize all your fridge's contents (and gently remind anyone who might look to *disrupt* that fragile order that the cheese does have its own rightful drawer, DEAREST).

    KW Printables/Etsy

    KW Printables is a Florida-based, woman-owned Etsy shop established in 2018 that specializes in customizable vinyl decals, planning printables, and gifts.

    Promising review: "Lovely shop owner, extremely prompt with answering all my questions. Very helpful to ensure I got the correct sizes for my labels. Fast turn around time and speedy shipping! I decided on grey labels and love that they almost blend in and aren’t so bold!!! Love having my fridge labeled!" —Krysta Buchholz

    Get it from KW Printables on Etsy for $2.50 per label (available in multiple colors and sizes).

    16. A weekly meal planner you can use to map out all your meals and grocery needs in advance, making sure you only pick up what you *need* so you won't end up overbuying and cramming too many things into the pantry and fridge at once.

    Amazon

    The list magnetizes to the fridge, and has the meal plan on one side, and a perforated "shopping list" you can tear off and take with you on the other side.

    Promising review: "I’ve been starting to get into meal prepping and this planner really helps! I like being able to look up recipes on my phone, then write down whatever ingredients I still need on the grocery list section of this planner. Being magnetic is cool because you can hang it on the fridge. I love how the grocery list section can be ripped off so you can take it to the store, but the daily meal plans remain on the fridge so you can stay organized. This is a very simple idea, but it’s cute and helps keep me organized and motivated to plan out my meals." —Samantha M.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    17. Plus a set of kitchen inventory printables to help you easily keep track of what ingredients you're working with in your fridge, pantry, and freezer, making it easier prioritize groceries and prevent cluttering up those spaces.

    18. A stackable cabinet organizer for your mug collection that seems to be expanding faster than your kitchen can allow, or for that one crowded corner of the pantry where everything is one light breeze away from crashing down.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Let me start by saying that I’m not one to post a review about anything. I just ordered two sets of these and they transformed my pantry in the blink of an eye! They are high enough to accommodate my short basket full of half baggies of noodles and grains, and durable enough to hold any assortment of vinegars and home can goods. I ordered two sets (four shelves) and plan on buying more for the rest of my sloppy kitchen." —V

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $16.87.

    19. A set of glass meal prep containers you can use to streamline the chaos of your random takeout and leftovers, since they're so easily stackable in the fridge. Bonus: these are also safe in the oven and the microwave, meaning you can cook, reheat, and eat out of 'em without ever bothering to go find a plate (and these lids are tighter than the Pentagon).

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Perfect for eco-friendly meal prep. I was looking to use less plastic and more glass in my meal storage which is why I ended up buying this set. The glass is thick and really durable, the lids fit snugly and everything is dishwasher safe. I feel better knowing I don't have chemicals leaching into my food. Well made product." —HoorayForCoffee

    Get a set of five from Amazon for $25.99.

    20. A six-outlet wall charger designed specifically for larger appliances, so you can finally settle on counter space for your electric kettle, toaster, *and* air fryer at the same time without having to fight for the only two outlets in your kitchen.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was constantly having to unplug something in my kitchen to make room for charging my iPhone or watch or using the slow cooker or any of the other half dozen things I wanted to use at the most convenient spot in the house...the kitchen counter. My 140-year-old house has a distinct shortage of outlets in the kitchen, so this product looked like a good option. It exceeded my expectations, and has made my electronic life much simpler. Features that I love other than the excellent number of outlet options it gives are that it screws into place (so it doesn’t pull out of the outlet when you try to unplug something), the versatility of having the USB ports, and the light feature that I appreciate a stupid amount. Yeah, the light switch is right next to it on the wall, but who wants to flip on a light just to plug something in? So basically the price was great, it arrived quickly, and it looks nice. I have a cordless phone plugged in, plus an Echo Show, my Apple Watch charger, my iPad, and an iPhone plugged in, with outlets to spare. I’ll run out of counter space before I run out of outlets." —HappyCarnivore

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    21. A Baby Yoda dishwasher magnet so you'll always know whether the dishes in the dishwasher are "clean" or "dirty" and avoid any dirty dish-related mishaps, and be much more likely to keep the dish cabinet organized by putting things back right away.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Who doesn't love Baby Yoda? I was tired of my husband saying he didn't know if they were clean or not and with us being Star Wars fans I had to go with this design — it's just adorable!" —Melsa

    Get it from Amazon for $9.49.

    22. A stainless-steel roll top bread box, because as much as we all love bread, nobody loves the clutter of seeing every family member's favorite loaf strewn across the counter like every day is Breadpalooza.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "We have a family of five and everyone likes a different type of bread it seems. I was tired of plastic bread bags littering my countertops. In my bread box I have one full bag of cinnamon swirl bread, one full bag of Sara Lee arteseno, one full bag of simply nature sprouted grain, and 1/2 bag of Sara Lee arteseno. That’s a lot of bread and it all fits perfect with no smushing! So glad to have this box!" —Anna Myrick

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

    23. A magnetic hanging utensil set that includes (*DEEP BREATH*) a slotted spatula, spaghetti server, slotted spoon, solid spoon, and a ladle, all designed to nest into each other to save space and the hassle of looking for them.

    The utensils sitting upright and stacked in their holder in shades of blue and green
    Amazon

    Someone gifted me one of these many moons ago, and the utensils have held up for over four years! They're still as perfectly magnetized and functional as they were when they first arrived, and I barely ever notice them even though my counter space is approximately that of a lunch tray (wish I were kidding!!!).

    Promising review: "We travel full-time and move every three months so everything has to be compact and packable. These replaced five other kitchen utensils that did not nest in each other. They sit on the counter ready to use. They are sturdy and have been used in nonstick ceramic and cast-iron pans. Very happy with this set." —Justice Talbot

    Get a set from Amazon for $28 (available in three other color varieties).

    24. An over-the-cabinet bag holder for all those "just in case" grocery bags you end up reusing — this holds up to 50 of 'em so you can get rid of Mount Grocery Bag under your sink and finally give them a proper home.

    Promising review: "I love this so much! I have been looking for something for all of the grocery bags I keep! We use these for our bathroom trash bags. This little thing is a awesome. And my kids can easily reach inside and get a bag out! Love it!" —Lindsey T.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in nine finishes).

    25. A sandwich bag organizer to finally tame what I like to call the "nonsense drawer," aka where I have indiscriminately shoved all the the kitchen items I like to use a lot and accidentally created a whirlpool of half-empty bag boxes in a zillion sizes.

    Get it from Southern Miss Design on Etsy for $27+ (available assembled or unassembled).

    26. A container lid organizer so the next time you pluck out a container, you won't be searching for the lid in a giant pile for so long it'll feel like you're trying to reunite lost lovers.

    Amazon

    Holder is divided into three sections and is BPA- and chlorine-free, food-safe, and made of shatter-resistant plastic. Recommended to clean with mild soap and water.

    Promising review: "I have several different types of tupperware and 90% of the lids I have fit into this easily. Now I can stack the actual containers separately without leaving the lids to just sit next to them, taking up space, or standing on their sides, ready to fall out if I move anything. It's been a while since I've heard my husband complain about the Tupperware cabinet in general, so for that reason alone I'm glad I purchased this, lol." —KB

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    27. A KitchenAid attachment mount that lets you click the attachments in and out of place in a hot second so you'll always have the proper tools for whisking, meringue-ing, and mixing up some cookie dough at the ready, and not buried with a bunch of random cutlery in a drawer.

    Get it from FusedLine on Etsy for $10 (available in four colors and as a screw-on or adhesive mount). 

    28. An adjustable can organizer to streamline up to 46 (!!) jars and canned goods, so you can rest easy knowing that your chickpeas, tomato soups, and green beans are tucked away safely and easily reachable.

    You can store up to 46 cans and jars of various sizes on this rack! It has six adjustable plastic dividers, and boasts sturdy-construction!

    Promising review: "We just moved into an apartment that has no pantry and limited cabinet space. I assembled this in two minutes, no tools required! I use it for my ziplock bags/foil/slow cooker liners as well! It works great as a multi-shelving unit. Two of my friends have seen this and have already bought one. Every house needs one of these!" —Annie
