    1. A set of drawer insert dividers so you can find your favorite sweaters, socks, and underwear with no problem every morning.

    the drawer inserts dividing a dresser drawer into three parts

    Promising review: "Works great. I like that the expansion notches are very closely spaced giving max variability. I used it on a mid-century dresser drawer and didn't want a lot of pressure to stress the dovetail joints. This way I got enough to keep the dividers sturdy without too much push." —wcsdancer123

    Get them from Amazon for $19.99.

    2. A set of six shoe space savers to make some room in the closet and justify buying another pair of shoes because now you have the space for them!

    Promising review: "If you have a large collection of shoes, but have limited storage space on your shoe rack, you should give these a try. These allow you to double how many shoes can fit on a rack/shelf since one shoe is placed on top of the other instead of side by side. Also, it gives your shoe rack a much cleaner/uniform look since you won't have different sized shoeboxes of various brands scattered all over the place. These work best for low heeled shoes, as high heels (4" and up) may be difficult to slide into the slots. There is a tab that prevents the top shoe from sliding off. Shoe slots are made of hard plastic and seem pretty durable. Another benefit to using these — you can see all your shoes at once (since they aren't hidden away in a box) and you can easily find the pair you want to wear! Saves time!" —L.C.

    3. An interlocking drawer organizer that'll give the junk drawer a total head-to-toe makeover.

    Promising review: "Love it. What a difference it made to our junk drawer!!! Before things were so hard to find and falling behind the drawer, now the same amount of stuff is in there but we can actually find what we need. Wish I did this earlier. Super configurable." —Alaina

    Get ian eight-pack from Amazon for $11.97.

    4. A pack of extra-large divider tabs to jot down notes and make your notebook organization something that everyone will be jealous of 👀.

    Promising review: "These allow more writing space than usual page tab markers, which is really useful for my college studies as well as my case note prep for legal work. If you are a fanatic note-taker like me, these are superb for helping you stay organized and focused on important information. They can be used for other things, like calendar and agenda notes, too." —Danielle H.

    Get a set of 60 from Amazon for $3.59 (for a set of 60).

    Promising review: "Great ottoman bench! Very large and spacious for storage. Pockets on the sides are great for flat shoes, flip flops, or flats. Very well made! Easy to assemble the feet, rest comes all together." —Megan S

    Get it from Ashley Furniture for $158.99 (available in two colors).

    6. A handy paper shredder for anyone who needs to shred up the junk mail before it even makes it into the junk drawer. Bye!


    Promising review: "Whether you’re a college student or a professional that needs something for the office, this shredder doesn’t disappoint. I really like the cross-cut feature because it utilizes more bin space. This means that it’ll be able to hold more shreds of paper. It’s powerful and reliable, and I haven’t had any problems with it since. I use it quite often and have only had to empty it once (out of the four months I’ve had it for). Its compact size makes it perfect for storing in tight spaces." —HandsON

    Get it from Amazon for $38.49+ (available in six sizes).

    7. A set of magnetic spice jars as pretty as they are useful. All of your guests will want to know where you got these.

    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

    Get them from Amazon for $9.95+ (choose from 3-, 6-, 12-, or 24-pack).

    8. A double laundry hamper with a lid so you can organize clean and dirty clothes to your heart's content, and minimize trips to the laundry room.

    Promising review: "I can’t say enough good things. It’s amazing quality. It’s super sturdy and holds its shape — it doesn’t collapse yet it does fold completely flat. The fabric is nice and thick. The lid is magnetic so it closes itself and stays closed. The interior bags easily detach and have handles for easy carrying in and out or washing. Absolutely a great buy. Love love love!" —Kerry

    Get it from Amazon for $45.96 (available in two sizes and seven colors).

    9. A gorgeous bookshelf that'll store books, candles, vases, and other items as part of your chic decor.

    10. A desktop stand riser with drawers to maximize storage options for your keyboard, mouse, notepads, and other desk necessities.

    Promising review: "I purchased this to raise my monitor up to a better viewing angle, and to provide extra storage. I love the look of the bamboo, and the cut-outs provide a nice parking spot for my phone, pens, etc. It was nice to see that it holds a very heavy monitor (my computer is a Dell XPS 2720, which is an all-in-one computer). The space underneath is perfect for 'hiding' my wireless keyboard. Perfect for my needs!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $40.99.

    11. A set of 12 color-coded food storage containers that are stackable and super easy to pair with the right lid — finally!


    Promising review: "Best product I have bought in a long time. Keeps the kitchen cabinet so organized, you don't have to spend an hour searching for the right lid for a container." —Debby

    Get a set of 12 from Amazon for $28.49.

    12. A linen storage basket you'll use to organize the nursery, out-of-season clothes, toys in the kid's room, and more.

    the storage baskets on a shelf

    Promising review: "I bought these fabric baskets to organize my out-of-season clothes. They are just perfect. Before I bought these baskets, my closet was always a mess. I bought six at the same time. One for sweaters, one for pants, one for small things like hats, scarf and gloves. I bought both colors and put them in order. My closet looks nice and neat with them." —Huimin Cheng

    Get it from Amazon for $10+ (available in seven sizes and five colors).

    13. An over-the-cabinet-door organizer who shall hold clunky cutting boards and muffin tins so they can stop falling all over the place in the cupboards.

    Promising review: "These were just what I needed for my kitchen! They are a space saver and helped to achieve more storage in a small area." —Jazmyne

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

    14. An easy-to-install set of baskets for anyone who is tired of knocking their entire skincare routine into the bathroom sink every morning and needs an accessible storage solution.,

    Promising review: "Wow. This is a tremendous value. I looked at baskets half this size for the same price. I bought this for my daughter for her bathroom. Hangs towels on one side and extra TP in the shallow side, and she has hung hand towels on the hooks in her small bathroom. Nice, quality product." —Jennifer

    Get it from Amazon for $28.83 (available in two colors).

    15. A set of magnetic stackable measuring spoons so you can measure it up in an orderly fashion. They also have extra large measurement labels so you don't mix up the 1/2 and 1/4 Tbsp. again!

    the measuring spoons being used to measure out spices

    Promising review: "These are great!! We cook A LOT and having functional equipment is important to us. This set proves that the age old measuring spoon can be improved upon in many ways. It comes with a scraper on top that is magnetic also, so you don’t have to use a butter knife. The measurement marking on each spoon is huge and easy to read." —Robert Wells

    Get a set of eight from Amazon for $13.97 (available in two colors).

    16. A set of medium Command hooks that'll hang up anything from dry erase boards to jewelry, hats, clothes, and more!

    Promising review: "These hooks are easy to use and are so useful especially when you have a small place. We use these on the back of our doors for towels, robes, and backpacks. We have some in the closet for belts and hats. VERY easy to remove and doesn’t leave a mark when you follow the directions." —Meg Kelley

    Get a three-pack of hooks from Target for $7.99.

    17. A pet food storage tower featuring a handy foot pedal that'll really make you question why every storage device in your home doesn't have a foot pedal.


    Plus, it has a snap-lock lid to keep odor to a minimum. Each bin holds up to eight pounds of dry pet food. It also includes a 1.5 cup food scoop.

    Promising review: "I love it. It is very useful storage for my small dog's food, treats, and other items. I would recommend this to my friends. It is so simple to assemble too." —Very Pleased

    Get it from Amazon for $66.81.

    18. And a "Did you feed the dog?" device suitable for anyone with a manipulative pupper on their hands, or a household full of people who may or may not have fed the dog at any given time! Bye chaos!

    a reviewer's hand holding the metal device

    Promising review: "My Labrador retriever is the master manipulator when it comes to mealtime. He has very convincingly deceived us many mornings with his plaintive eyes that he has not received his breakfast. Les jeux sont faits! Mr. Chunkamonk will fool us no more! The meal tracker fits securely on top of his Simple Human pet food container, and we simply slide the appropriate switch to confirm that he’s been fed." —Moira

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    19. An adorable rainbow hanging pod I'm obsessed with and am ordering in every color, thanks!

    20. A sturdy kitchen cart ready to bring peace and order to your home. More counter space = a win for everyone.

    a reviewer's image of the cart holding cutting boards, pots and pans, colanders, and other items

    Promising review: "Super easy to put together... no tools, other than your own hands, are needed. Had it done in 30 minutes, if that. I love this unit. Brings my once cluttered and hardly any counter space kitchen, back in order! There's a couple other very similar racks, one of which is a few inches taller. I went with this one because I want to easily see/access/clean everything on the top shelf." —Jennifer Williams

    Get it from Amazon for $66.24+ (available in multiple styles and sizes).

    21. A happy mat silicone plate that'll stay in place, keep your kid's food neat and separated, and reduce messes from tipped bowls.

    This mat is 100% food-grade silicone; BPA-, BPS-, PVC-, lead- and phthalate-free.

    Promising review: "Love this product. Saw these on Shark Tank before we had a child and then we purchased one when we had our daughter. This is easy to use, easy to clean, and durable. Our daughter can't pick up the mat and throw it off the table like some other products out there." —Tony Y.

    Get it from Amazon for $24+ (available in four colors).

    22. A weekly meal planning pad so you can plan ahead, make shopping lists, and keep track of what's already in the fridge with ease.

    the meal planning pads with weekly meals written out on them

    You can separate the two lists or keep them attached! It even has two magnets on the back so you can easily hang it on the fridge.

    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 and then write down whatever ingredients I still need on the grocery list section of this planner. The fact that it's 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 $8.95 (available in 14 varities).

    23. A self-cleaning litter box and housing unit (sold separately) reviewers swear by to turn the smelly, messy litter box into a self-cleaning, tidy space your cats will still adore.,

    Promising review: "I have three cats, and now I wonder why I waited so long to invest in this sort of product. I originally was looking at other brands, but the ratings were not very good. I was worried I would have picky cats that would choose not to use the new scary box but they all have loved it! As another reviewer said, I also purchased the Merry Products Cat Washroom to house the unit. It hides it perfectly, and it looks nice in a living area rather then trying to find a place to hide a box. Additionally, I also purchased a forever tray to use instead of having to repeatedly buy disposable trays. I also bought micro crystals that are easier on the paws (two of my kitties were rescued and had previously been declawed). If you have cats or even one cat, this really is a great product, and a good investment in your time and home." —Jessica Vaughn

    Get them from Amazon: the self-cleaning litter box for $139.95 (available in three varieties) and the housing unit for $144.99 (available in two colors).

    24. A reusable, food-safe bag you can use for so many things — storing leftovers, marinades, Sous vide — and they are freezer-, dishwasher-, and microwave-safe.

    This bag is BPA-, PVC-, and latex-free.

    Promising review: "I've tried a LOT of reusable bags as there are a lot of options out there all using a variety of materials. The fabric ones just get gross over time. The vinyl ones are hard to clean and aren't usually dishwasher-safe. There are other silicone ones that need a separate rod to close them that you can easily lose. This one is the most simple and easy to use. No separate pieces to lose. Can withstand any temperature/microwave/dishwasher/whatever. And if they get gunky they are very easy to clean and I trust that they aren't hiding gross crumbs in any of the crevices." —Megan A.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in 14 colors).

    25. A set of picture-hanging Command strips to showcase your memories without leaving marks on the wall, according to satisfied reviewers.
