    Promising review: "I am always trying to decorate my cubicle and I bought this because I love the colors. It has a calendar, a note section, a pocket for my pens, and lots more. My cubicle neighbors have complimented my new desk accessory when they have stopped by!" —Sweet Caroline

    3. A set of five adjustable shoe slot space savers to get all your shoes in order and make you say "clunky shoe rack? I don't know her.", Amazon

    You can adjust these to work with multiple shoe types and heel heights, and it fill fit up to women's size 12!

    Promising review: "I ordered one set of these, they worked so well that I ordered four more sets. Finally found a solution to the issue of shoes all over the floor of the closet. The holders snap together easily and are also easy to readjust the height. All our shoes now fit in the available shelf space in our closet." ⁠—WayBorg

    Get a set of five on Amazon for $17.99.

    4. A simple but genius magnetic knife stripe reviewers swear by for holding up their color-coded knife set, and even heavy-duty kitchen utensils. Now you can have all knives in view and accounted for, and feel assured a murderer is not in your house after listening to way too much My Favorite Murder podcast!,

    Promising review: "Great for organizing your knives. Now, when the serial murderer breaks into my house and grabs a knife, it is obvious the knife is missing. I then know to be prepared with the 9MM." —Florida Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $17.68.

    5. A set of adorable and highly useful expandable file folders so you can take that bin full of important papers down to a manageable size.


    Read our full write-up of these folders.

    Get them from Amazon for $7.38 each (available in 11 colors).

    6. A set of three expandable dresser drawer organizers that, unfortunately, are leaving you with no excuse to not fold and color-code the underwear drawer.


    Promising review: "I will never be a person who folds underwear. It's never going to happen. That photo that comes with this product? Not me. But a simple tool like this turned out to be what it takes just to know where things are. Left. Center. Middle. Any organizer made of cloth was out. I wanted something rigid but adjustable. If an organizer has soft sides, it's going to end up underneath the things it's supposed to be separating. These fit firmly where I put them and there are no corners to snag clothing or hurt your hand on when you reach into the drawer. Well-engineered product. I created three sections to my large top dresser drawer by adding the partitions front to back. I am so pleased with the difference that I am ordering two more sets so I can do my other drawers also." —SeattleBookMama

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $17.08.

    7. A small and handy key organizer to keep all your keys in one place; because checking yesterday's pants for the house key is not a sustainable way to live.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.59+ (available in two colors, can fit up to eight keys).

    8. A stainless-steel clothes drying rack you can use indoors or outdoors to get those delicates dried and put away in no time! It also collapses when not in use to save space — the dream.


    Promising review: "I hand-wash laundry at the end of every day. On this hanger, I can fit everything I wore in a day (gym clothes, socks, underwear, bras, work clothes, sleepshirt, and casual clothes). There’s plenty of room on it, and it’s very sturdy. It’s so much easier than trying to use my apartment's laundry room that is shared by the entire building. The hanger is sturdy and seems like it will last me a long time. I will probably buy a larger size soon so I can do towels as well." —Renee Greinke

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in three sizes).

    9. A universal nail polish organizer (read: will fit all your fave brands) that honestly puts the Caboodle I use for mine to shame. This organizer lets you see every color you own at once 🌈.

    Amazon / BuzzFeed

    This babe holds 48 total bottles (24 on each side) so the color your want is always in view.

    Promising review: "I bought this after trying a makeup style Caboodle for polish and looking for many, many more. This is better than advertised. ESSIE, OPI, POP-ARRAZI, SINFUL COLORS, SH INSTADRY, SH TRIPLE SHINE, SH XRREME WEAR, WET AND WILD, SH HARD AD NAILS, and COVER GIRL all fit perfectly in the standard size boxes. My JULEP colors fit two in a compartment!

    The first row has adjustable dividers, you can use them to keep odd-shaped bottles or do what I do: use one side for my nail stamper, dotting tools, and the drying drops and the other for foam wedges and nail pens. It looks way neater easily tucked under my vanity instead of the baskets and baskets of polishes I had to hunt through!" —Clouds

    Get one on Amazon for $26.99.

    10. A handy USB charging cable bracelet to make staying on top of whether you charged your phone last night / have a charger in your bag way easier — just wear this babe and you'll always be prepared.


    This specific bracelet is compatible with Apple (iPhone 5/5S, 6/6S, 7/7+, 8/8+), but you can also get one for Samsung products.

    Promising review: "Love this. What a great way to carry around your charging cable. I used this when visiting Disney World. There are more and more USB ports in the parks and at the airport. Very handy." —HP

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in two different sizes).

    11. A pair of DIY desktop pencil holders you'll be able to put together easily, and enjoy the satisfaction of de-cluttering your work area.


    Promising review: "Everyone at work comments on these! Easy to apply and has stayed on so far. I work in an open floorplan with very little space for a lot of personal items. This works perfectly and was inexpensive enough that I have no concerns if something happens to it. Comes packed flat, and must be folded up and the small tabs are inserted into slits. That was not very difficult at all." —Mama S

    Get them from Amazon for $7.98.

    12. A large backseat car organizer so you can stash away toys, drinks, baby wipes, snacks, and much more of life's necessities in a neat little home.


    Promising review: "Two big sippy cups fit in the drink holders, and they won't sweat all over the floor due to the neoprene insulation. The whole thing is nice and stiff, not saggy like some all fabric ones I've seen; there's a big plastic back piece, so I expect it'll stay that way for a long time. Lots of pockets for markers, pens, activity books, etc. We don't have car tablets, but the clear pocket is nice for other stuff, too. My toddler tells me about the moose every time she gets in the car now!" —M. T. Jaegerman

    Get it from Amazon for $15.97.

    13. And a smaller (but still mighty) backseat organizer for anyone who might not have a whole family's worth of stuff to keep on top of, but could still use a little organization before the next road trip.


    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    14. A stick-to-the-wall toothbrush holder as adorable as it is useful. It can also hold razors in the shower, it's easy to clean, and it just might encourage your little ones to brush their teeth!


    Promising review: "My 2-year-old LOVES the pineapple from TOOLETRIES! It helps make brushing her teeth fun, it's hard for her to pull it off the mirror, and it's easily cleanable! She gets so excited when it's time to get her toothbrush out of her pineapple." —Callie Gudgel

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    15. A four-layer pencil case that won't let all your pencils roll around wildly and will keep everything in nice, soothing, color-coded order.


    It can hold up to 72 pencils!

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    16. A stackable under-the-sink cabinet organizer featuring a sliding basket that'll tidy up the kitchen/bathroom sink, and everything you need will be way easier to reach.


    Promising review: Awesome organization product! Everything is so much easier to see and reach. I've had a few friends who also purchased this, and they love it. I also purchased dark brown shelf liners — thought it made everything look a little more uniform :)." —K.M.

    Get it from Amazon for $23.97 (available in two colors).

    17. A weekly pill organizer to ensure you are serving "I'm cute and have my life together" vibes, and, more importantly, to ensure you don't forget to take your meds/vitamins!


    Promising review: "This pillbox is exactly what I was looking for. I take several medications a day and this helps keep me organized and makes it very easy to see whether I remembered to take them or not. I also love that if I go away for a weekend, it is very convenient to take the pillboxes for the days that you will be gone." —Tabatha Cumer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.45.

    18. An over-the cabinet basket so you can tuck away cutting boards, baking pans, plastic wrap, and whatever else is cluttering up the cupboard as we speak.


    Get it from Amazon for $13.97.

    19. A water hyacinth storage bin with handles that makes me feel calm and tidy just from looking at it. Bye random stuff laying around the house!

    Container Store

    Get them from the Container Store for $7.99+ each (available in sizes XS–L).

    20. A dotted planner reviewers absolutely swear by for getting their life in order. It has sections for meeting your goals, daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly planning, space to journal, and will help you be even more efficient with color-coded pens.


    Promising review: "This freaking planner... it's EVERYTHING I needed. I'll let you guys in on how I organized mine. Color coded all five goals in the beginning, and then when I was doing something daily, weekly, monthly that served those goals, I wrote that in the corresponding color. So you can glance at a week and say, 'Yes, I'm hitting goals one, two, and three, but not four and five.' That system helps my daily activities feel tethered to my bigger goals. I also love the vision board and space for mind mapping. I have severe adult ADHD and am a trauma victim, so I need therapeutic tools (plus meds) to help organize my thoughts and this planner has thought of everything. Space for journaling at the back — like 60 pages. On each weekly page spread, there's a place for weekly goals (again color-coded to yearly goals), successes, and what I can work on. This is the planner!" —Kelly Wolfe

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

    21. An easy-to-assemble sturdy bamboo utility shelf to mount for more storage in the bathroom, or set up on the floor for the plant angels in your life.,

    Promising review: "This shelf turned out to be much nicer than I expected! It was easy to hang, too. I'd definitely recommend it, especially with the sustainability factor of bamboo." —Dani Arteri

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in two colors).

    22. A cute, rustic key holder that'll encourage everyone who visits your home to hang up their coat and keys as soon as they enter.

    South Texas Home Decor

    Get it from South Texas Home Decor on Etsy for $1.49+ (available in 29 colors).

    23. A simple yet effective tea bag organizer perfect for anyone who has way too many tea bag boxes taking up way too much space in the kitchen.


    Promising review: "I am a tea drinker and at times I would have up to six different tea boxes in the cabinet. Purchasing this item was great because now I am able to have all of my tea bags in one big container and I can use the space for other items." —R2D2

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    24. A magnetic tear-off notepad available in whatever format you need — to-do list, grocery shopping list, meal planning, and more!


    Promising review: "Love it!! Will make shopping trips much easier. And it's small and handy!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95 (available in 12 varieties).

    25. And a waterproof noted pad designed to help you out when you just can't stop organizing and planning, and need to jot some stuff down in the shower.


    Promising review: "This product is amazing! In fact it's so amazing that I've gone back and bought three more and intend on getting everyone one for their Christmas stockings! We've all been using these in our own homes and call each other in amazement of how well they really work. You can actually erase on the paper when it is actually 100% WET! Amazing!" —Susan Masullo

    28. A purse organizer insert for anyone who often switches bags and needs a better system so no ChapStick gets left behind (or for anyone who wants to make their go-to purse totally clutter free)!,

    Promising review: "This is such a great product. I love bags and I am always changing them, which can be a bit messy if you're like me and carry your entire closet with you. Haha. This is perfect. It has soooo much storage, I didn't realize it had another zipper compartment. Highly recommend. 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻" —Wanderx

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in three sizes and 29 colors).

    29. And a set of six Command cord bundlers designed to wrangle up pesky little cords into neat bundles, like the cord behind your KitchenAid mixer!


    Promising review: "You need these! I've added one to the kitchen aid stand mixer, one to the space heater, one behind the computer desk to tame the cord jumble, and I'm just getting started. This is so much better than the twist tie/rubber band/zip tie options I have been using in the past." —Kbuck6
