    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 $20.99.

    2. 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 $12.20.

    3. A shirt folding board to keep your closet organized and tidy and your shirts ready to go!

    Promising review: "I admit I was skeptical and in the beginning a bit challenged on how to use this, but once I got the hang of it I was a T-shirt folding fool! These are not small shirts either many are XXL, XL, L shirts! It took a cluttered mess and created a work of art. I thought I would try using this on my dress shirts to pack for a trip, and I could fit twice as many in my bag compared to the way I used to pack. Again well worth it! I wish I would have caved and bought one sooner. My home will never be without this again." —E Scrima

    Get it from Amazon for $16.79+ (available in five colors).

    4. And a set of vacuum storage bags because there is a floor underneath the heaps of clothing in your room/closet, I promise!

    Promising review: "THESE ARE LIFE-CHANGING. They even give you a hand pump to use in case you're taking the bags camping or just don't have a vacuum handy. I tested the pump to see how well it works, and it worked perfectly! Works just as well as a vacuum, just takes a little more effort pumping out the air. Using these bags, I got half my closet back! I used three bags to store ALL THE items in my closet including three large pillows and several thick blankets and comforters. I will most definitely be buying more; these are fantastic!!!" —Knastay

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in four styles and five sizes).

    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.

    7. A set of magnetic spice jars as pretty as they are useful. Seasoning dinner just got a little bit easier!

    a set of 12 spices hanging on a fridge

    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. An outlet shelf to free up some space on the bathroom counter and to keep important items like toothbrushes and deodorant front and center.,

    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 $10.99.

    9. 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

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

    Promising review: "Love the OXO pop-top canisters! They seal well and open easily with a press to the pop-top. I have arthritis in my hands and these are fabulous and so easy to open, yet so secure when the lid is popped close. Also has a useful knob on the bottom of the lid so you can stick an OXO scoop inside the container to the lid rather than down in whatever you are storing in the container." —Lori A. Fregin

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!

    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.

    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 $9.99 (available in 14 colors).

    28. A laptop sleeve to protect your computer and ensure your WFH or study supplies have a neat space of their own.
