2. A food storage lid organizer ~clearly~ meant to tidy up a messy cabinet filled with unwieldy lids.

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." —KBGet it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in three colors).

Promising review: "I am so happy to have found this major space saver! I always struggle to find a place to store my cutting boards — I worry about how clean they are when I leave them on the counter. I love the fact that they are now tucked away and won't get dirty!

11. And a two-pack of kitchen organizer racks that'll put an end to the terror mountain of stuff that falls over every time you open the cabinet by stacking away lids, pans, cookie sheets, and cutting boards.

Promising review: "I have a low, narrow cabinet that's really awkward to get into. It 'eats' cutting boards. I bought these to try to wrangle the boards into submission. Worked better than I hoped. I can now just reach down and grab a cutting board without having to dig around for it. I thought I'd end up using the second one in my office to hold files, but it turns out that it was perfect for my sheet and muffin pans. They are sturdy, and the little rubberized plastic 'feet' keep the rack from shifting or sliding on shelves." —ReaderGet a two-pack from Amazon for $14.87.

Get it from Amazon for $8.87.

13. A wall-mount plastic bag holder so you can do away with that one plastic bag that holds all the other plastic bags under the sink, and stuff 50 of them into here instead.

Promising review: "There was an absolutely insane number of bags in my cupboard. The entire under-the-sink area was a complete no-go zone. I bought this thing and by boyfriend stuffed 50 plastic bags into it. They seem to come back out easily and without too much distress. I got my cupboard back!" —Blahsblah2001Get it from Amazon for $9.10.

Promising review: "These look like they were made with my drawers. We got new cabinets, and went with big 'ol drawers to be able to just dump stuff in.

Promising review: "I am very happy with this. Heavy duty construction all the way around with good quality steel. Ball-bearing slides with full extension, so you can now reach things in the back of the cabinets without completely unloading them, and getting down on your hands and knees.

Both are awesome." —Stephen FullertonGet it from Amazon for $81.61+ per shelf (available in four sizes), or from Jet for $71.53+ per shelf (available in six sizes).

Promising review: "There was really no place in my kitchen to hang dishtowels, except for the oven handles. I got one of these to try on the cabinet door. The brushed finish is sort of neutral, and does not stand out. The first one worked out so well that I ordered another 14" and two of the next smaller size, so that i can now hang four dishtowels (or dishcloths) without using the oven. I am very happy with these, wish I had gotten them sooner." —MamachillsGet it from Bed Bath & Beyond for $7.99 (available in four colors), or as an add-on from Amazon for $6.78 (available in two sizes).
