    1. A modern night stand 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

    2. 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 fit your shoes.

    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. Height is adjustable for short, medium, and tall boots!" —PK

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $9.99 (available in two and four pairs)

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

    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. If you have boring socks then I would say screw it because you are boring." —Esq

    4. 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! Plus no installation needed, just hang it from the top rod.

    Promising review: "This was exactly what I was looking for. My 5 and 3 yr old loves dressing themself but could not reach their cloths 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 cloths. I saw others that were adjustable and that would have been nice but this seems sturdy. Would recommend." —LuvShping

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

I strongly recommend this product." —Brittany W.

I love it, thank you." —Emily Dumas

It’s a sturdy shelving unit with an infinite amount of ways that it can be put together. It’s strong enough that you can leave out a couple of panels and it will still stay together. The connectors are very strong and you have to use some pushing and pulling to connect and reconnect them." —Wendy L.
