1. This magnetic chalkboard for all your upcoming events and meals.

"I got a magnetic chalkboard calendar for the side of our fridge and I write everything that we have coming up for that month in different-colored chalk pens.

Price: $24

2. This over-the-door hanger stops you from being lazy and leaving stuff on the ground.

"I got one and it changed my life. I have a coat, work shirts, dressing gown, handbag, etc. and I can not be bothered going to my wardrobe and putting them on hangers every time I use them and take them off (plus my wardrobe is really small). This way, my clothes can easily be hung up and taken down in a more easily accessible place. Prevents me from getting lazy and leaving stuff on the floor or my bed." —Nicole Blow, Facebook

Price: $10

"I bought a purse organizer on Amazon and it has been a game changer. I keep all the random little things I need for work, school, and life in it, and I can actually find all of them. Also, it makes switching up my purse an actual possibility, because I can just pop out the organizer and move it to another bag." —Tori Latus, Facebook

Price: $10

"Plastic shoeboxes with labels. First-aid kit, skin products, electronics adapters, batteries/fuses/bulbs, etc., all neatly boxed on the shelves." —Mark Adkins, Facebook

9. This magnetic dry-erase board keeps all your daily tasks in plain view.

And it’s all in place in plain view, instead of tucked away in a planner or on a post it I might lose." —kayleighl4426052a7

10. The Google Keep app makes coordinating grocery shopping a snap.

Google, Inc.

We both add stuff whenever we run out of something, so we never forget the 'list' at home. So efficient and a big time-saver in coordinating the grocery shopping!"—mumi79

11. This key organizer helps you keep your shit together.

"The only thing I use to even come close to organized is a key holder that says 'keys' and it actually has a jumprope and my husband's boonie hat hanging on it. I need to get my shit together." —christalslily

13. This bed pouch that fits under your mattress and keeps your stuff within arm's reach.

Price: $9

14. This magnetic bowl keeps all your small pins and ties in one place.

"Once I cleaned my desk off and found 48 bobby pins, so now I have a few little dishes sitting in my room where I put my bobby pins and hair ties. They look adorable and prevent my room from becoming a bobby-pin black hole." —carehwinks

Price: $11

15. And this bathroom tote keeps all your small toiletry items organized.

"I have one of these bathroom caddy things that people who live in dorms use. I don’t need to carry it anywhere, but it keeps all my little bathroom things corralled. Pill bottles, lipsticks, lip balm, toothpaste, etc. It prevents me (and my cats) from knocking stuff on the floor, and makes cleaning the countertop so much easier; just lift and wipe!" —jbro
