    1. A Murphy desk for anyone with work to do but not a lot of space to do it in. This desk folds out and back up so you can keep things stored inside and out of the way when you're not using them.


    Promising review: "We set this up in my son's room and it's great. A lot sturdier than we thought it would be and very easy to mount to the wall. My son has a habit of not being careful with things, but we have seen no issue with this. The hinges that hold the desk when open are still tight, and we have had this for six months." —Michael Deering

    Get it from Amazon for $179.77.

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

    Promising review: "The struggle with hangers has been real for quite some time. I wish I had known about this thing sooner! This has saved me a TON of room and hassle!"—Kara

    Get it from Amazon for $18.45 (available in packs of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 10).

    3. A leaning ladder rack, because when there is no more real estate, you have to start building upward. This is a very chic way of keeping your clothes, blankets, and towels off the floor.


    Promising review: "This is such a dandy place to hang towels and clothing that usually occupy the floor! I loved it, so I bought a second one, too! It is more than sturdy enough for the jobs!" —Drsarahr

    Get it from Amazon for $50 (available in two colors).

    4. A rounded nightstand with a nifty built-in basket for easy-to-grab storage right where you need it.


    Promising review: "Love this nightstand! It was perfect for our living room. I love how it’s put together with screws and a drill instead of an Allen wrench. It feels so sturdy, and the basket is so great for extra storage!" —Hayden

    Get it from Amazon for $56.99 (available in nine finishes and in a variety of styles).

    5. A durable honeycomb drawer insert to form a home for your socks, scarves, ties, undies, etc. No more digging for a matching pair. Marie Kondo is shook!

    Promising review: "Perfect way to organize socks and make it fun to open the drawer and be like, 'What socks am I gonna wear today?' And all the colors and patterns beam back at you." —Esq

    Get it from Amazon $11.99.

    6. 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 they could get tangled in. Seems durable and held a lot of clothes. Would recommend." —LuvShping

    Get it from Amazon for $17.27.

    7. A set of three collapsible bins to have on hand for when you need extra storage ASAP. They easily collapse and store away themselves when you don't need them. Win-win!


    Promising review: "These bins are sturdy and exactly as pictured. A superb bargain to get three! I use them as organizers in the trunk of my car, but I could easily imagine many uses. Attractive and useful and affordable!" —N.K.

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $20.99 (available in three color combinations).

    8. 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.


    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 at a premium, but 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

    Get it from Amazon for $45.96.

    9. A shoe rack bench to keep the shoes you wear the most out of the way but ready to go when you need them! Guys, I think I found my furniture ~solemate~.


    Promising review: "I bought this bench for my entrance because there's always a lot of shoes around there. I've sat down on it many times, and it feels very sturdy and also doesn't look cheap. I love it. So far, so good. I also put it together in less than 20 minutes." —Claudia

    Get it from Amazon for $39.95.

    10. A headboard with built-in shelves for anyone who doesn't have space for a bedside table or other shelving units.


    Promising review: "I purchased a new bed and needed a headboard similar to what we had on our waterbed — just some simple shelf to hold a few items and a place to set a cup of coffee. We wanted to keep minimal furniture in the bedroom, so I don't want nightstands. With this headboard, it holds the few items we want and is easy to keep clean." —M.

    Get it from Amazon for $104.99 (available in sizes twin–king and in four colors).

    11. A four-tiered corner wall shelf — it's a tierific way to use the space you do have in your room to your advantage.


    Promising review: "I was so excited to purchase this, and I'm happy I did. The shelves have a lot of room for the items you want to put on them, unlike other shelves I've seen at other places. I purchased this shelf to put my crystals on, and crystals aren't light. It holds up really well; it doesn't shake or move, and I'm not nervous to put weight on it. If I could give this a 10-star rating, I would!" —Emily Dumas

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99.

    12. A set of dividers so you can keep your drawers organized. Stop digging around piles of unfolded mess for your last pair of clean socks. If this before-and-after photo doesn't spark joy, idk what to tell you. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    The set includes four bins: a 6-cell (for scarves and ties), a 7-cell (bras), an 8-cell (underwear, briefs, and ties), and a 24-cell (socks and underwear)!

    Promising review: "Love this purchase! It’s helped make my drawers so much more organized and easy to navigate. I like that the bottom is zippered and is easily flattened if needed. I’ve had this a few months and it’s still in great condition." —Medina

    Get it from Amazon for $14.87 (available in two colors).

    13. A floating bookshelf (or three) to free up space and make perfect use of that large white wall that's been empty and begging for a fresh look!


    Promising review: "These are so much fun! We ordered the small size, which fits standard hardback books (approximately five to seven hardbacks, in my experience). They're a great way to add some extra storage to our very small home, and we've placed them in our hallway, so people ask us about them all the time. I'd highly recommend!" —LaBuenaVidaMere

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97 (available in a set of three and in two sizes).

    14. An eight-cell under-the-bed storage solution for your seasonal shoes! It hurts my sole to see shoes pilled up in the backs of people's closets.

    Each cell fits men’s size 11 shoes and women’s size 9.5 shoes (including 4-inch high heels).

    Promising review: "I can't wait to use it right after I get it. You can put small stuff other than shoes in the blocks and just slide them in under the bed; very convenient and practical. The plastic sheet is a good feature to protect from dust and can be hung up in my closet with side handles. It helps me to clean my bedroom a lot." —Junyuan Tsang

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in two sizes).

    15. A bed that'll lift up with ease to reveal the storage space you've been dreaming of. Holy *sheet*, that's a lot of room!


    FWIW, it is outfitted with a gas hydraulic mechanism that does all the heavy lifting for you!

    Promising review: "Love this bed! The storage underneath is a great place to put out-of-season clothes, decorations, etc. Tons of room! The pneumatic lift is easy to operate. Very nice looking as well." —David

    16. A clothing and shoe rack for anyone needing a solution for a small or nonexistent closet.


    Promising review: "Great rack for the price. The four hooks on the side provide additional storage to hang purses, bags, etc. The rack is short, so long dresses and coats touch the first shelf. But overall, a solid clothes rack with a nice design."—Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $46.99 (available in extra large and in two colors).

    17. A six-pack of space-saving vacuum bags that'll turn the closet you pretend doesn't exist into the closet you can actually use again. Having trouble with storage space? Don't worry, we got this in the bag.

    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.

    18. A bedside shelf so all of your bed-related needs are within arm's reach! Need a tissue? Not an issue!

    Attaching this to your bed frame requires zero tools — the clamp that keeps it steady is built in, and all you do is tighten to the correct width.

    Promising review: "I am so impressed with this product. I have literally been looking for something like this for years. We have a trundle bed in our guest bedroom. So a traditional nightstand or bedside table would block the trundle from moving in and out. This is the perfect solution. It is nice and sturdy, even with my 13-inch MacBook sitting on it." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in five colors and in three sizes).

    19. An acrylic jewelry and makeup storage display that'll free up so much surface space in your bedroom.


    Promising review: "This may be the best money I've ever spent. I can now actually see all of my makeup and remember what I have, instead of rifling through 50 products all mixed up in a makeup bag. It works very well, and there's plenty of space to fit different kinds of products. It's clear plastic and looks nice on my dresser!" —Jennette

    Get it from Amazon for $14.65 (available in five colors and in three designs).

    20. A modular cubby unit made up of rearrangeable blocks so you can create the design that works best for your space. Adult Legos!, Amazon

    Each cube can be used separately or stacked and combined for any design that suits your space. Each cube can hold up to 10 pounds and is waterproof and dust-resistant.

    Promising review: "This is one of the best products I have ever bought for organizing. Pretty amazing system. It assembles very easily (one person) and can fit a variety of space options. I assembled mine to frame a small window in my closet so I did not block the light. I will buy more of these systems for my other closets. The doors can be arranged to open in four different directions. Magnets are included so doors click shut." —Heidi

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99 (available in two colors and in three sizes).

    21. A door-hanging shoe organizer that will make great use of the space behind your door. Knock, knock. Who's there? Storage solutions at a great price.


    Promising review: "If I had a lot of shoes, I would undoubtedly have a shoe organizer like this one. It's sturdy and holds things securely, but in my house it holds my collection of spray paint cans. It is a tremendous help: I have them organized by type of paint (satin, gloss, etc.), I know which ones are almost empty, and now that I can see the colors I have, I make better color choices! I value this organizer VERY much!"—Grammyrose

    Get it from Amazon for $8.27 (available in three colors).

    22. Or, if you're more of a cap person, a door-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 out this product. You are given two belts that hold nine hats each, with two different ways of attaching the belt to the door. I chose 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 $9.99.

    23. A "dictionary" that's really a safe for your valuables. How do you spell "incognito" again?


    Promising review: "Well-made basic home safety storage. I wanted a place to tuck away some semi-valuables and cash. Looks like a real book from a distance. It is well built. The combo lock works well, and I am glad I have a secure place to put things out of sight." —Farley

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    24. A square tufted storage ottoman – it may have you saying, "OttoMAN, I'm saving so much space!"


    Promising review: "I am VERY impressed by this ottoman! The pictures do not do it justice! I was worried it might not be sturdy or it might look cheap, but neither is true. It's an amazing buy at this price, and I plan to buy at least one more in a different color." —Shannon

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in four colors).
