We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

1. A no-tools-needed two-tier shelf that'll teach any awkward corners a lesson or two about space maximization. (What, your shelves don't talk sternly to your corners?)

amazon.com

Promising review: "What you see is what you get. A nice, solid stainless-steel shelf. Looks great in my kitchen. In fact, after seeing this one up, I ordered a second one to go on the other side of my stove. No tools were needed to assemble. Took about two minutes to put it together." —MascotRay

Price: $23.88

2. An over-the-cabinet door organizer for cutting boards, baking supplies, or, hey, even bottles of booze.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I have a small kitchen and anything that needs to be out in the open has to have its own spot — and the rack was the prefect solution to keeping my cutting boards out and organized. It fit over a cabinet door perfect and now I have my cutting boards right where the need to be: next to the kitchen sink, without having to stuff them behind something or dig them out of the cabinets! The rack was easy to put together with a Philips screwdriver, took maybe four minutes — three of that was looking for the screwdriver!! The screws are secure, don't seem to be working loose at all with the rack being jostled when I take a board out or put one in or when the cabinet door is opened/closed." —OverRover

Price: $13.87

3. A plastic-bag holder, so you can finally start being civilized and stop storing your plastic bags inside another plastic bag in a random drawer.

amazon.com

Promising review: "This is a great product, I really love it! Exactly what I was looking for and needed to keep my bags in a much nicer way and more accessible to us. We used to store extra bags in a bag hanging on the handle of the door — that always irritated me. So when I saw this way to store my bags, I was very excited. The product is a nice heavyweight wire that does not look cheap and doesn't move while hanging on the cabinet door due to the foam backing on the hangers." —Fur Kid Mom

Price: $12.99 (available in six colors)

4. A set of OXO pop containers that'll keep your dry food and ingredients fresh and pest-free for longer than it would be in its original packaging.

Rebecca O'Connell / BuzzFeed

Promising review: "This is the second set of OXO Pop containers that I have purchased. I bought the really big set, a while ago and was hooked. No longer will my white rice/grains/rolled oats/grits go wormy ( I know....yuck), my cat's kibble is stored in a clear container so I can see when it's running low. (FYI: the pet food container is not included in these sets, but is worth the additional purchase.) I love these containers. They are lightweight enough so there's no strain on the wrists, yet heavy enough they don't tip over easily. The lids are easy to clean, and you could apply labels to distinguish between flours and sugars.

They are expensive, but I believe you get what you pay for — quality costs extra money. If I need another set in the future, I will buy it." —Judith A Loue

Price: $49.95 for a 5-piece set or $84.99 for a 10-piece set

5. An adjustable-shelf Whitmor microwave cart or baker's rack so you can free up counter space and benefit from additional vertical storage for all the stuff crowding up your kitchen – even if it's your dog's stuff.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I bought this for my dog. No seriously. Her stuff was taking over my small apartment kitchen and I need the space for a dining area. She needed a raised platform for her food and water bowls, and a spot where I can stash her toy box and treats. It fits perfectly, is VERY sturdy (and the bottom has leveling feet pegs), not too big or small, and the adjustable shelves mean you can fit just about anything you need on this rack, exactly where you need it. I am in love with this item. Only took about 15 minutes to put together as well." —Michelle L.

Price: $59.99

6. A handy Keurig K-cup organizer, because the last thing you want to do before you've had your caffeine is sift through the mess in your cabinet to find the coffee you're in the mood for.

amazon.com

Holds 40 K-cups.

Promising review: "Best K-cup holder ever invented. Takes up so little space. Hidden away, easy to use." —Nicole

Price: $21.40

7. An elegant magnetic strip to hold knives or any other kitchen tools that would otherwise be cramping your style in overcrowded drawers or counters.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I used to have an ugly knife block that took up too much room, so I decided to get a magnetic knife strip. I've read that the cheaper metal ones scratch and dull knives, so I went with a wooden one. This company offers different types (colors) of wood to match your decor. The item arrived in a timely manner and well packaged. Included were screws and drywall anchors. It even smelled good out of the package. It took me all of 15 minutes to install (I have a drill and a torpedo level). Really easy and straightforward installation. The strip itself holds my knives very securely and frees up a bunch of counter space that my old knife block used to take up. The strip works extremely well throughout the length of the product." —Thomas

Price: $34.95+ (available in 10 finishes and 8 lengths, plus the option to customize length)

8. Or a tea bag organizer that holds over 100 of 'em, if tea time is more your vibe.

amazon.com

Holds more than 100 tea bags.

Promising review: "Do I really need a tea bag organizer? That's what I was thinking when I ordered this. And when I took it out of the box. And when I filled the first little bag holder. But as the pile of empty boxes grew larger, I knew the answer was yes, I do need a tea bag organizer. I was using a whole shelf and a half of jumbled tea boxes, which I had to sift through to look for a specific tea. In the end, I think this held about eight or nine boxes of tea bags (I crammed some of them). I am so happy that I got this!" —Sarah C.

Price: $24.99

9. A mounted rack for your pots and pans that, tbh, you know you've been thinking about getting for forever, so maybe you should just take this as a sign that the time is now.

amazon.com

Promising review: "Sometimes you love your order and at the very same time you think, why I am late to do this? It holds all my items and is very convenient. This product doesn't take too much space and its a great fit for your kitchen — if you have a small kitchen then it's a right choice for you. Very easy to install without need a handyman. The best part is it comes with eight hooks for hanging pots and pans and soup ladles and cutting boards; you can move the hook to provide enough space for your cookware. Three knife holders can store choppers and fruit knives, with extra plastic made of ABS, which makes sure the knife is not easy to blunt. Overall highly recommend for your kitchen stuff." —Vinit Rajguru

Price: $22.99

10. A Simplehuman sink caddy so you can avoid wasting precious counter space on your sponges, soap, and other dishwashing tools and instead store 'em right inside the sink.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I wanted a simple and inexpensive option to organize sponges and brushes bc I was tired of leaving them either laying on the counter or digging in the sink for them. I came across this and took a chance; I'm so glad I did. This works perfect. It keeps the counter top clear and organizes the sponge/brush. We even use the extra sponge spot to keep our hand wash only knives off to the side to avoid them accidentally going in the dishwasher. I've not run into suction issues. In fact I have to really work to get the suction cups off when I'm doing a regular full clean of the sink." —jicole24

Price: $16.99

11. Or a tip-out tray that'll put some faux drawers to use for discreet sponge storage. (What else were they doing anyway?)

amazon.com

Promising review: "Love this! No more clutter of sponges and stoppers around the sink. We installed these when swapping out the sink. Installation with no sink in place is a breeze; otherwise I can see how it might be tricky. The hinges work well. They were a little stiff at first but loosened up in a day or two. They still close with a little "snap," which one time jettisoned the sponge into the under-sink cabinet — now I know where to look if it ever goes missing again. The trays can be slid off their mounting screws and rinsed out when they get a little dirty from storing the cleaning supplies." —Lisa

Price: $18.24+ (available in 11-inch and 14-inch lengths)

12. A set of magnetic spice tins, which you can attach to your fridge or any magnetized surface and will make everyone who visits your home say, "Oooh, I need to get some of those."

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "Where have these been all my life? These are perfect. So happy to have my spices off the shelf, and up on the door where I can see them ALL (and they're even organized alphabetically). One tip: If you're putting labels on, turn the container so the 'sprinkle' lid is in the upper righthand corner. This will keep very fine spices (baking soda, for example) from leaking out when on the steel base." —Robyn

Price: $8.95 for a 3-pack, $11.95 for a 6-pack, and $19.95 for a 12-pack

13. Or a pull-down spice rack that makes use of vertical space and can also be used to organize all sorts of goods housed in small containers.

amazon.com

Promising review: "THIS IS AMAZING. I'm so happy with this product. I was desperate for a way to organize all my baking things, all of which are painfully small and lead to mass clutter. Be careful when installing that you don't leave it too close to the edge or it won't pull down the whole way." —Abigail Greene

Price: $20.02+ (available in black, clear, and white)

14. A stackable organizer to help bring peace and harmony to your cabinet — or your freezer.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "If you have a tiny apartment or small freezer that have no shelves this is such space saver! Now I have shelves in my freezer. I am renting an apartment and I cannot just order a new fridge — I have to use what they have in their rental unit. This item allows me to make this work better for me, and when I choose to leave this rental unit, I can take the shelves with me!" —MzzNickey

Price: $14.87

15. A three-tier hanging fruit basket that's as pretty as it as functional.

amazon.com

Promising review: "Very durable. I have a 5 lb. bag of potatoes in the bottom and a 3 lb. bag of onions in the middle and it seems pretty strong." —Wendy Kleinz

Price: $13.97

16. A charming foldable bamboo wine rack to prove to your guests that you've got this whole adulting thing down pat.

Amazon

Promising review: "This wine rack is perfect for my use: under cabinets/on top of counter. Right height. Right engineering (correct tilt to keep corks submerged; completely stable). Right number of bottles -— as another reviewer has said, it can even hold two additional bottles on top and on the bottom, one each in the two gaps between the three bottles on each level. This one performs as advertised, smartly and stably." —R. Burnstine

Price: $14.99

17. And an under-the-cabinet hanging wineglass rack that'll seal the deal.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I turned an entertainment center into a beautiful liquor cabinet. These are perfect and easy to mount. You just have to be sure the spacing is right for the size of the base of your wine glasses." —Shirley A. Vierth

Price: $15.99

18. A cereal dispenser to make life simpler for anyone with kids or mobility issues *and* keep your cereal nice and fresh as an added bonus.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I love the convenience of just turning a knob and cereal appears. No fuss, no mess! I bought this because my 14-year-old can't seem to pour a bowl of cereal without spilling it or the milk or both. This would have been convenient when he was a little boy looking to help himself. The container releases one serving at a time per turn of knob. Good for calorie control. But great for clumsy hands in a hurry! No spills at all!" —Cindy120

Price: $14.99+ for a single dispenser and $37.95+ for a dual dispenser (available in black, white, red, and silver)

19. An adjustable bakeware rack that'll make all your flat baking items super-easy to access and store — so you can stop storing them in the oven already.

amazon.com

Promising review: "We have one kitchen drawer and very awkward cabinets in our apartment so organizing was an ever-changing and maddening puzzle. Frustrated with the challenge, I went online came across this product which originally seemed expensive at $19.99. In my desperation, I decided to try it out anyway. I ended up loving it and bought three more at that price. I'm happy to recommend this product to others in the same situation especially with the price cut. It's very sturdy and takes only seconds to set up!" —Elizabeth Giordano

Price: $14.99

20. A chic little four-tier rack narrow enough to fit in the tightest spaces that'll hold everything from sauces, oils, and seasonings to wine bottles and small bowls.

amazon.com

Promising review: "Love this item. Easy to put together. In fact was concerned because the shelves just sit in the slots. But the weight of the items keep the shelves from moving. We went from an older 42-inch-wide stove to a smaller 36-inch stove and had a 6-inch gap at the end of our counter. This fit perfectly at 5.5 inches wide. Love that it holds my large Tone seasoning canisters from Sam's Club. Put them on top two shelves and heavier glass bottles (like olive oil) on bottom. Looked at the plastic ones, but a lot of people were saying they weren't holding up and were coming in with broken pieces. This would be very easy to spray-paint any color to match your cabinets. Thinking about adding one to bathroom and painting white. Love that you can lock the front two wheels into place so no kiddies can pull on it and spill anything." —Mudhen

Price: $38.99

21. An expandable shelf to organize all that crap you've got strewn about like a tornado hit under your sink.

amazon.com

Promising review: "As a professional organizer, I have purchased this item several times to solve the problem of many clients' under-the-sink organizing dilemmas. It's easy to assemble, made of sturdy material, and shelves can be adjusted to clear the plumbing. It solves 95% of the situations people face when trying to better organize the space under their sink. It works the best for bathrooms where clients can add plastic bins or baskets to corral their many personal hygiene products when bathroom vanity drawers are not an option." —Susan Rupe

Price: $19.87 (available in black and bronze)

22. A set of nesting storage containers that'll take up minimal space when they're not in use.

amazon.com

Promising review: "Do you get excited over simple things? These containers are well-made, have color-coded tops with bottoms (colored dot in bottom of the clear container) to correspond with top color, and most importantly for me, a great organizational set. That messy cabinet with all of the unruly plastic containers is a thing of my past. I hated fumbling with tops and bottoms and the look of the 'mess' it created. I am in love with this set and I am sure I will be buying more." —Amazon Customer

Price: $14.36+ (available in 6-, 8-, 10, 12, and 16-piece sets)

23. A cute paper towel holder nestled below a convenient shelf for other frequently used kitchen items, like dish soap and sponges.

amazon.com

Promising review: I am absolutely in love with this paper towel holder. It is not only great looking but so easy to use. No more tearing half the roll of paper of towels when you only want one. This really gives you only one towel. It is great for me since I am disabled. Best paper towel holder I've ever owned." —Cathie C.

Price: $17.75

24. A mop and broom holder that'll lend some much-needed zen to your cleaning-supplies closet.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I have a small apartment and the broom closet was always a mess with the brooms hitting me in the face whenever I took the trash out. This saved me so much stress! The slots have little rollers and they move to fit just about any size mop or broom. There are also little hooks that can drop down if you want to hold towels or the dust pan, which is what I use it for. This is a must-have organizational tool!" —Jacqui Nibbelin

Price: $11.99

25. A gorgeous expandable bamboo cutlery drawer so you'll never have to dig through a pile of utensils again just to find that dang spatula again.

amazon.com

Promising review: "My utensil drawer has never stayed organized, so I gave this a try and I'm so glad I did. Everyone who opens the drawer now is so impressed by how neat it looks and how easy it is to find what you're looking for. The quality is great and I love the color. The expandable feature is really nice since it allows you to customize to fit your drawer. Make sure to measure first!" — Mindy Spacco

Price: $25.65

26. A rolling three-piece pet-food storage system to keep your pup's or kitty's food fresh AF (personalized pet-name decal not included, unfortch).

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "Not only are these containers airtight, they are also dog-proof! I left my three boxers inside the house with two sets of these containers and came home to find them in various places in the house, with numerous scratches and bite marks, but still closed and the contents safe! Attempts at self-feeding were foiled! Great product!" —Diana Nicholson

Price: $18.89+ (available in eight colors)

27. A mug tree so up to six of your faves are always within arm's reach if cabinet space is at a premium.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I read a LOT of reviews on various mug trees before deciding on this one. It's just what I wanted: sturdy, nicely made, great finish, and looks great without taking up too much space. If needed, it would even fit under my kitchen cabinets (but I like having it on the outside edge of the countertop). VERY useful and it looks great; the picture doesn't do it justice.. Love it; highly recommended for its quality AND the terrific price. Very happy! PS: I added stick-on felt pads to the bottom of each foot. Keeps it quiet and protects my countertop." —OK

Price: $9.99

28. And storage cabinet that attaches to the side of your door and fits *so* much stuff you may just be inspired to buy one for every room.

amazon.com

Promising review: "This is a must-have for any small space. My bathroom has no medicine cabinet just a mirror and is pretty small, so storage is a huge deal. My girlfriend came across this item so I figured I would give it a shot being Prime eligible. The finish was flawless. I know it states it needs a two-person install but I put this together and hung it in about an hour by myself with very minimal effort and I'm sure if I did it again it would be significantly less time. This fits soo much stuff — it really is amazing and it does not impede any operation of the door. I can't fully explain how much I recommend this. I'm about to order the mirror version for my bedroom for colognes and little knickknacks to declutter the countertops." —happy shaver

Price: $149.99+ (available in white and espresso)
