    1. A shaper insert so your boots stand tall to prevent creasing and to create more space on your closet floor.

    They're also customizable for ankle, calf, and knee-high boots with guides to trim them to the right height.

    Promising review: "These are simple shapes of die-cut black plastic that you bend and insert into boots to keep them upright. The plastic has enough springiness that they expand to the width of the boot, and also a slight ribbing on one side (the side you put facing the boots) so they don't slip." —PK

    2. A hanger stacker to fix one of the most annoying closet problems in history. This before and after alone has already changed me for the better!

    Promising review: "These hanging bags are exactly like they are described in the information. They are very sturdy and hang flush against my door. I am actually using them to store my quilling paper so I can't tell you how they would do with heavy items. But I think that I would trust them to hold up just fine, as they are that sturdy." —Sandesdomain

    Get it from Amazon for $7.97.

    4. Or if you need storage specifically for your caps, a hanging hat rack to make the most use of an empty space. Hats off to you for finally organizing your favorite accessory.


    Promising review: "This is a great storage solution! I have melasma so I wear hats outside constantly. Since my collection keeps growing, I decided to test this product out. You are given two belts that hold nine hats each with two different ways of attaching the belt to the door. I choose the less permanent version which took all of two minutes to install. Easy peasy and works like a charm!" —socaltresa

    Get it from Amazon for $9.97 (available in three sizes).

    5. A shirt folding board to incentivize you to actually fold your laundry when it comes out of the dryer. You know, instead of clumping it all in a "clean pile" on your closet floor that eventually gets dirty because you never put it away properly!

    Not relatable to me at all...👀

    Promising review: "My husband can not stop folding t-shirts! He looks forward to doing laundry now. It's a great product and so easy to store and use!" —Krista

    Promising review: "This is a supreme product. The bags are made of thick, quality plastic. It is very easy to seal and to vacuum. I placed a dryer sheet in each sealed bag to keep the clothes smelling fresh. My closet looks so well organized, I have much more room and my winter clothes are stored safely and beautifully. I highly recommend this product." —A.A.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    7. A three-pack of motion-detecting strip lights, because you're tired of squinting in dull lighting to see what exactly you have in your closet. These are a cheap way to get helpful lighting in the darkest corners of your closet. You don't need to get professional installation — just stick them on.

    Attaches via magnetic strip, so no installation is required, just stick-on anywhere! Four AAA batteries required per light. There is an auto-on feature when you get within 10 feet and an auto-off feature after about 25 seconds of no motion detected.

    Promising review: "Awesome. Motion sensor works so well. The moment you open the door to your closet, this thing turns on instantly in a split second. The illumination is good and has a wide angle of coverage. Claims to last 100,000 hours. The light turns off a few seconds after walking away or closing the door." —Jason Kim

    Promising review: "Belts can be one of the hardest things to find a good place for as they even take up a lot of space when coiled and the act of coiling them is annoying. This belt hanger is exactly what I needed to solve this problem. Just put it at the end of the most exposed portion of your closet and you can just take your belt straight off and put it directly on the rack in a matter of seconds and it makes finding the next belt you want to wear a breeze as well." —AmazonCustomer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in a pack of two).

    Promising review: "Just what we needed. Didn't exactly need a dozen, but I figured once I started organizing that I'd find things that needed boxes. Sure enough, that's exactly what happened. I ended up using half of these right away and still have a few left over. They're just the perfect size for shoes, crafts, tools and parts organization. I love to stack them under shelves where I can just pull out the whole box and then look through it." —Amazon Customer

    12. A double closet rod so your little ones can actually reach their clothes in the morning. Don't share a closet with kids? Get TWICE as much hanging space for your clothes! Just hang it from the top rod, no installation required.

    Promising review: "This was exactly what I was looking for. My kids dress themselves but couldn't reach their clothes, so this is the perfect solution. I like that it was all metal and there were no straps or ropes he could get tangled in. Seems durable and held a lot of clothes. Would recommend." —LuvShping

    Get it from Amazon for $12.19.

    13. A laundry basket with a built-in divider for storing your lights and your darks (or clean and dirty) in separate bins. Laundry day just got a whole lot simpler and your closet just got a whole like neater.


    Promising review: "I can't believe I'm writing a review for a laundry basket, but I love it that much, so here I am. I've recently moved into a new condo where storage is a premium, however, the bathroom is pretty large, which is why I decided I needed something that was publicly presentable. The quality of this hamper goes way beyond the price. It's attractive, stylish even, and very sturdy. I love it." —Alan McGinnis

    FWIW: I own this hamper myself and it's wonderful! It keeps all my clothes organized and I know what is dirty and what is still fresh & needs to be hung up.

You can put other small stuff other than shoes in the blocks, and just slide in under the bed, very convenient and practical, the plastic sheet is good feature to prevent from dust and can be hung up in my closet with side handles.

I stuck the Moso bag in the corner of the closet and now I no longer have any bad smell in my closet. The bag itself is cute and I like that it is all natural! Just throw one wherever there's a bad odor and forget about it." —Margaret

    18. A divider to clip to your shelves so you can better organize t-shirt piles, purses, coats, and more., Amazon

I can easily grab the one I want quickly, and without any snags. I ordered the teal blue and it's a gorgeous color. The price is great as well. You will love this! Do not hesitate to buy!" —Liz

    Get it from Amazon for $13.87 (available in three colors).

    20. A 50-pack of thin velvet hangers, because those chunky random hangers from 15 years ago is making it impossible to fit all your clothes on one rack. Plus the velvet material will help your clothes cling to the hanger and not slip off.

No de-flocking, the hooks can turn easily without breaking, clothes no longer slip, and the shoulder dents are a bonus I highly recommend these and spending a little extra to get the great quality." —Ciao

Just imagine a dusty mess with shoes thrown all over each other in a sad attempt at giving some appearance of order, and you will have a good idea of why buying this shoe organizer was one of the best ideas I've had this year. The floor now looks so neat and tidy I can't believe my eyes every time I open my closet doors."Veronica, just an average reader, you know?

    22. A drawer organizer so you can actually find your fave pair of socks and get out the door ON TIME for once!

    Get it from Amazon for $13.97 (available in two colors).

    23. A sleek tie rack that'll keep your ties from getting wrinkled and strewn about on the floor. This new organized closet really suits you.
