    You can use these for so much more than clothing! Think craft supplies, extra toiletries, shoes...basically whatever you have too much of.

    Promising review: "These storage bags are fantastic. I live in a small apartment where storage space is at a premium. I use these to store my Costco toilet paper and paper towels so I don't need to make as many trips to the store. It keeps them in pristine condition and out of sight. The handles make them easy to pull in and out, and they fold up nicely when not in use. I'm thinking about getting two more since four will fit under my queen bed." —Kimberly Dorn

    Get it from Amazon for $12.97+ (available in five colors).

    2. And some adjustable bed risers in case you need to make a little more room down there to truly fit EVERYTHING.

    A bed skirt will hide these bad boys if you're worried about optics. And they'll also work with couches or futons.

    Promising review: "These blow my mind. They've added so much storage under our bed. I worried about them being durable enough to withstand our weight but there was no need to worry. Just this past weekend, both my husband and I were on the bed when two of our teenage sons ran and jumped on the bed with us. I didn't even hear a creak from these bed risers. There must have been close to 800 lbs. on our bed at that point and these risers held up like champs." —Kelly McHone

    Get them from Amazon for $18.99+ (also available in white).

    3. A silverware sorter that'll hold up to 24 pieces of cutlery while taking up barely any space at all so you can actually fit all your tools in one drawer.

    Promising review: "I have a tiny kitchen with only three drawers, so space is at a premium. My silverware organizer took up almost all of one drawer, so this organizer is a godsend. You can fit quite a few spoons etc. in each slot. My beater attachments fit perfectly into the top two hollows. I will say I have to flip my forks over face down in order to be able to shut and open my drawer, but then the drawer itself is kind of shallow. You NEED this if you have a small kitchen with few drawers!" —mialro

    Get it on Amazon for $11.99.

    4. A cable organizer box to keep your piles of cords from taking over an entire corner of the room.

    Plus, now their kids and/or pets won't decide those cords are their new favorite dangerous toys.

    Promising review: "I'm so happy with this organizer box. I can't stand a heap of tangled cords going every which way. I've got two AC adapter boxes in there. Also in the box is a small power supply, the cord for the iMac I use, and a long USB cord plugged into my charging station. It's awesome." —Ben W

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in multiple colors, sizes, and styles).

    5. A tiny outlet shelf perfect for storing an electric toothbrush, your glasses, or any other odds and ends that need a better resting place.

    FYI, it installs like a regular outlet cover, and can also be installed so the shelf is below the outlet.

    Promising review: "I was very skeptical about this one, I had it in my cart for a while and just couldn’t get myself to order it. Once I did and I received it, I was so happy I did. I will be ordering more now. It adds extra storage space. My laundry room is very limited so any added storage is key! I use it for my dryer sheets. I’ll be ordering another to store a small trash bin for lint from the dryer. I’m thinking about also adding these around the house for other things. So easy to install, takes literally less than two minutes." —Hazel Vera

    Get it from Amazon for $12.87+ (available in four colors and packs of two and four). And check out a larger outlet shelf.

    6. A shower curtain with pockets because now you can stop knocking over piles of half-empty shampoo bottles every time you step in and out of the tub.

    Promising review: "We are apartment living, so storage is always an issue, and the bathroom is no exception. No one in the household could take a shower without crash/boom as you're knocking something down sitting on a shelf or the bathtub rim. This is a game-changer. There are so many pockets with so much room in each, I actually have space leftover. My husband's back scrubber, my shampoo and hair care, and my daughter's bubble baths and bath floofies all fit with room to spare. 

    And the pockets are all a nice height so I'm not crouching to find anything. The curtain is clear so I didn't have to change the 'pretty' one for decorative purposes, and it doesn't affect light that way either. Either way, I am super pleased, and I am keeping this link handy in case another one is EVER needed." —goodnite.graci

    Get it from Amazon for $25.07+ (available in two colors).

    7. A set of drawer organizers for anyone whose sock, underwear, and other drawers are packed to the gills and rapidly devolving into chaos.

    They also collapse to store flat when not in use. You get four bins: a six-cell (for scarves, hankies, and ties), an eight-cell (for underwear), a seven-cell (for bras), and a 24-cell (for socks).

    Promising review: "I LOVE LOVE LOVE these organizers!! I almost did not purchase them due to the reviews saying that larger than a C-cup would not fit into the bra organizer. At just $15 for four organizers, I took my chances and ordered two sets of four. I figured, worst case scenario I would have to cut the dividers out of the bra organizers. I wear a 32DD and the bras fit beautifully in the organizers. I am so glad I took the chance and did not listen to the reviews. I would have missed out on the best cheapest organizers I have ever found. I ordered another set for tank tops and other extras I did not think of before. I will also order my boyfriend the brown ones for his drawers. Great product for a great price!" —Elizabeth L. Blackwell

    Get the set of four from Amazon for $13.87 (available in seven colors).

    8. Or a set of honeycomb dividers if you wanna to use the most scientifically efficient packing shape, approved by bees.

    The pieces just *snap* together for easy assembly, and the design expands to fit whatever size drawer you have.

    Promising review: "The honeycomb organizer was easy to put together. It’s made of thick, durable plastic (no weird smell). You can adjust the width that you want; this was very helpful as it fit my smaller IKEA Alex drawers perfectly by taking off one half. I can easily fit two pairs of long socks in a 'comb' and three low-cut socks. This organizer is fantastic and I highly recommend it, especially if you have the Alex drawers. I will be purchasing more." —Chloe Cole

    Get it from Amazon for $9.61.

    9. A lid organizer that'll make sealing up your leftovers less of a hassle.

    It'll hold round and square lids up to 9 inches wide and it only takes one minute to set up! Also, one reviewer shared that a sweet note from the brand in their package revealed that this YouCopia brand is a woman-owned small business!

    Promising review: "This product does exactly what it is supposed to and does it well. In under 15 minutes, I took my nightmare lid drawer and turned it into a functional, convenient storage space. The dividers were simple to install and provide flexibility. Slowly but surely I am getting my tiny, chaotic kitchen under control, and this got me a huge leap closer." —S. Hawthorn

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in four sizes, a set of two, and with expanders).

    Get it from Amazon for $14+ (available in two sizes and sets of three).

    12. A U-shaped shelving system that'll revolutionize your spice cabinet.

    Promising review: "Product is perfect for what I need it to do. Fits just right, is more than sturdy enough, and has made my absolutely nightmarish spice cabinet look awesome. No more duplicate spices going bad in the back of the cabinet! It’s not at all difficult to assemble. Watch the assembly videos (they’re short) before you start opening the parts bags. Otherwise it’s easy to get intimidated by all of the extra pieces." —Congaree

    Get them from Amazon for $27.99.

    13. Or a set of magnetic glass spice jars you can stick to the fridge to free up a cabinet for other storage needs.

    Promising review: "I am in love with my magnetic spice jars! I recently moved to a small apartment and don't have the counter or wall space to store spices or a spice rack, so magnetic jars it was! I love how these have a decorative feel while providing a secure way to store the spices. Unlike other magnetic spice jars I feel that these add an extra flair to displaying your assorted spices." —rae.m.wri

    Get a 12-pack of small jars from Amazon for $70 (also available in 24 small jars, 12 large jars, and 24 large jars).

    The White 4 Tier Kitchen Cart 40
    Wayfair

    Promising reviews: "It’s perfect for my little efficiency kitchenette. It’s a quick setup, and it’s pretty sturdy. It moves back and forth if needed as well." —Wayfair Customer

    "This was a great touch for a previously wasted space between my washer and dryer in my laundry room. It works best if it can roll straight out, but my husband secured the joints. It also allowed me space for the iron and ironing products rather than filling up my utility closet." —Wayfair Customer

    Get it from Wayfair for $40.80 (originally $79.99).

    15. Some Command hooks that are strong enough to hold a wide variety of items and require *no tools* to install. Plus, you can move or remove them whenever you want without leaving behind any damage or annoying sticky residue.

    Promising review: "Absolutely love these! I have bought them three times already on Amazon. I have been trying to organize my kitchen utensils. I have minimal counter space and ceramic tile walls behind my counter. I am unable to risk drilling in to the tile or to the underside of my cabinets. These sticky hooks are perfect!! They adhere to the tile AND to the wood laminate of my upper cabinets. They also are great on the painted wall and the bumpy side of my refrigerator. I started using these around March of 2020 and I have not had a single one fall down. I have various sizes of kitchen utensils and items hanging from them." —Tigerakp

    Get a pack of 16 from Amazon for $11.95+ (also available as a pack of 28).

    Promising review: "Not only do these shelves look amazing and give me so much more room for my plants but the customer service is amazing! I forgot to order extensions with my order so I contacted the shop and they helped me by making a special listing for the extensions. They placed them in my original order so everything came together. If you’re looking for a window shelf this is it!!" —Jamie Miner

    Get it from Indoor Window Gardens on Etsy for $74+ (available in three styles and five mounting options).

    18. A set of stackable corner shelves in case you need to build upward to find room for all of your various tubes and bottles.

    Promising review: "These are pretty nice shelves for sure. I like that they stack and are clear. I think they make the bathroom counter look clean and somewhat more organized. They are easy to sanitize so that is a plus. I would definitely recommend if you want something cheap but nice to help the clutter." —RJ2727

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $20.49 (available in three colors).

    Promising review: "This organizer is so useful! I recently moved and ended up with a much smaller kitchen, so I've been doing everything I can to make sure there's a place for everything and no wasted space. Luckily, I have pretty wide cabinets, so this works out perfectly. I have one holding my cutting boards (four standard plastic boards) and another holding my foil, cling wrap, and parchment paper boxes. The organizer is super easy to assemble and it's completely versatile. Hang it over the cabinet door or attach it to the wall/cabinet door, which means it's great for renters and owners." —Kerry

    20. A mounted stemware holder that'll defy gravity to essentially turn one shelf into two!

    This rack holds 9 to 12 glasses depending on their size!

    Promising review: "I really like this wine rack! I needed a nice, space-saving solution for wineglasses that are too tall to go in my glass cabinet, and this rack fit the bill. It was simple to install and looks great. Good buy!" —Cycle Mom

    Get it from Amazon for $19.93+ (available in rows of three or four, packs of one or two, and four finishes).
