    1. An organizer shelf made up of six spacious cubes so you can take all the stuff that is currently on the floor or stuffed in that closet (you know the one) and organize it into neat little cubbies. Great, now you have a new empty closet!


    Promising review: "I already own three of the white nine cubby units from Target and love them. They’ve held up for over seven years as bookshelves and kids' closet organizers. The color of the picture online is true to life and it is a very easy assembly."—Customer

    Price: $59.99 (available in four colors)

    2. A large milk crate you can put into the shelf unit I just mentioned or use around your house to clean up knickknacks taking up wayyyyy too much space on the kitchen table or floor and keep them out of sight.


    Promising review: "Great baskets, they are the perfect size. They're not too big and not too small. They look nice! We use it to put away toys in our living room, and it makes it look so much nicer. They feel sturdy and like they will last a long time."—Customer

    Price: $19.99

    3. A plastic bathroom tray that'll organize your larger items like face towels or smaller items like makeup brushes and toothbrushes. When you give your bathroom items a permanent home you'll be surprised to see just how much stuff you end up getting rid of.


    Promising review: "Perfect little trays for organizing drawers in any room at an affordable price! I’m so happy to find these, they look so much better than those little plastic ones with holes in them you know for like holding pens/pencils. These look so much nicer!! Will be buying more! Please don’t ever stop making these."—Customer

    Price: $3.99 (available in four sizes and two colors)

    4. A wire basket with a set of copper handles for anyone who loves to keep things tidy but also likes to know where things are and what exactly is in each storage bin. Free up more space by taking the time now to go through all of your office papers and only keeping (and organizing!) the ones that are still important.


    Promising review: "Very well made and sturdy. No sharp edges like some of my other metal/wire baskets. Would buy again!"—Customer

    Price: $12.99

    5. A soft fabric bath basket for large towels or if you bought an excess of toilet paper recently and have nowhere to put it all (yes, you Karen!)


    Promising review: "Purchased for use as a toy crate for my small dog. High quality, looks great and it's soft on the bottom for my wood floors. Also bought the larger size for toys to use upstairs."—Customer

    Price: $9.99 (available in other sizes and colors here)

    6. An over-the-tank toilet roll holder for an ingenious way to clear up space on the ground and utilize the unused area beside your toilet tank.


    Promising review: "I love this design because it is a space-saver, which is exactly what I needed for a small bathroom with not a lot of floor space. It hangs on the side of the toilet tank and fits perfectly there."—Customer

    Price: $9.99

    7. Or a toilet paper holder so thin, it'll fit right between your toilet and your sink. Plus it has this handy shelf on it, adding more space to store your reading or cleaning materials.


    Promising review: "Perfect for my bathroom that for whatever reason didn't have a place for toilet paper! The top part is for phones, but we use it for wet wipes."—Customer

    Price: $27.99

    8. A three-tier expandable shelf to make better use of the space you have on your shelves for spices. Now you can see which spices you have instead of digging around in the dark recesses of your cabinet and hoping you grab the garlic first.


    Promising review: "Perfect for use in my pantry! The expandability is perfect as it will fit on any shelf. I'm thinking about ordering a couple more and might use them in the bathrooms to help with organization!"—Customer

    Price: $12.99

    9. A 5-quart airtight dispenser for all sorts of food storage. Put your cereal or really any snacks inside so you know how much of it you have left and it'll stay fresher longer. Plus it'll save tons of space in your pantry due to its super sleek design.


    Promising review: "I was pleased with this purchase! It keeps cereal fresh and clear contains lets you know when you need to replace. Slender design allows to easy assess and room when in cabinets."—Customer

    Price: $22.99

    10. Or, if you need a rounded version, a three-piece airtight round canister set with a push pop top that'll make organizing your dry goods feel fun and productive at the same time. Now you don't have four bags of flour taking up space in your pantry, they're all in one container!


    Promising review: "These canisters are just what I was looking for. The variety of sizes are great. I use them for coffee beans and other snacks. They are great at keeping food fresh."—Customer

    Price: $39.99

    11. A pair of bamboo expandable drawer organizers so you can customize your drawer in a way that works for you. It's so frustrating when cutlery organizers don't fit, these will AND they'll give you more space to work with.


    These can fit in any drawer sized 17-22 inches deep.

    Promising review: "I added these dividers to my utensil drawers and they look like they were built in. My cooking utensils and miscellaneous kitchen stuff are much easier to manage. It doesn’t hurt that I took this opportunity to clean out the junk. We have strangely narrow drawers in our kitchen island, so other 'drop in' dividers are not an option. I like that I can customize the spacing in the dressers. I am happy with this purchase."—Customer

    Price: $14.99

    12. A metal garment rack for excess clothing that is currently on the floor of your overstuffed closet. This will make your clothing feel organized and easy accessible as well as give you space to move around in other parts of your closet + room now that things are off the floor.


    Promising review: "This is a great rack. I use it in our guest bedroom for extra closet space. It is pretty sturdy and looks great compared to most clothing racks. The shelf at the bottom is great for stacking shoes and shoe boxes. I also use the space underneath the shelf between the floor. Would buy again!"—Customer

    Price: $40

    13. A scarf hanger to compress the mess that is your scarf or tie collection into one easy hanger. Now you'll always know where your accessories are without having to dig for hours for the same one you wear every time anyway!


    Promising review: "Much bigger than I expected. Works great for hanging scarves, I’m actually going to purchase more of these!"—Customer

    Price: $7

    14. Similarly, a five-tiered pants hanger so your pants can stop taking up much needed drawer space and can hang at eye-sight level in a very organized way with this hanger.


    Promising review: "I bought these pant hangers to save space in my cabinet, and it works great. Quality is good, and the other pants don't slide out easily while I'm trying to take one out. They're also really good-looking!"—Customer

    Price: $7

    15. An under-bed fabric bin because it's getting warmer outside so it's time to put away all those winter clothes, heated blankets and so on! Winter clothing is a PRO when it comes to taking up space. You'll be excited to see that sweater that took up so much room gone for now.


    Promising review: "I love this box. I use it store all of my ties. It is good quality and lightweight. Looks even better in person. Fantastic value. I think I will get one more to hold some winter items. The box is a really good size."—Customer

    Price: $14

    16. A three-drawer closet organizer with a rustic oak finished top for anyone who is desperate for more closet storage especially now that they are home a lot and noticing just how bad it has gotten (me)!


    Promising review: "Perfect size for a closet. Assembly was less than 15 minutes and everything you need comes in the box. Literally 10 screws and an Allen wrench! After researching other sites, this was a great price. These can be stacked two high. I would say get two because once you get one, you will want another!"—Customer

    Price: $59.99

    17. A laundry hamper that is taller than it is wide so you can say goodbye to those super thicc and clunky laundry baskets we grew up using that take up way too much space in an already small laundry room.


    Price: $8.99

    18. Or a three-bin folding x-frame hamper that'll help you pre-organize your clothes into delicates, whites, and darks or even clean, kinda dirty and HELLA dirty. When you're not using it you can fold it up and put it away to make room for other things in your life.


    Promising review: "I'm a big fan of this hamper. I purchased the three–bin for pre-sorting (darks, colors, whites). I love the minimalist look, the collapsible frame, and removable bag. Goes great with my neutral bedroom decor, too!"—Customer

    Price: $25 (available in two sizes)

    19. A hallway bench with storage space built right in and a comfy cushion you can sit on when you tie your shoes.


    Promising review: "I assembled it alone with very little difficulty. It seems quite sturdy in the month that I've used it. It also fits perfectly in my entrance way to allow shoes to be removed & stored before entering the apartment. I am very pleased."—Customer

    Price: $84.14 (originally $98.99, available in four colors)

    20. Or a metal and wood hall tree with a built-in storage area, a bench, and two stunning hook racks for literally anything and everything you need to keep out of the way. Now there aren't random coats, shoes, or backpacks strewn about the house taking up room.


    Promising review: "This is exactly what we were looking for! This hall tree is sturdy and beautiful! The instructions were super clear and every piece was labeled making it easy to assemble. It comes with wall anchors as well but we haven’t used those and it has been fine. I can sit on this and put my shoes on and it feels super sturdy. "—Customer
