    1. A lid organizer to get your chaotic kitchen drawers back under control!

    amazon.com

    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 $15.99+ (available in four sizes and with or without dividers).

    2. A sock and underwear organizer that'll make it much easier to find your socks and underwear in the morning.

    amazon.com

    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 a four-pack from Amazon for $15.87 (available in seven colors).

    3. A six-piece set of refrigerator bins to help you save your fridge from devolving into full-blown chaos.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These were ready to use right out of the box after a quick wipe. They are a heavy, durable, clear, BPA-free acrylic. I share a small side-by-side fridge with my landlord and it was tough to keep food separated and organized. Greenco clear refrigerator bins have made a big difference. They allow us to maximize the space we have and keep food organized. I would definitely recommend these to anyone wanting to bring organization to their fridge." —Conquer Clutter

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    4. And some super-strong magnetic strips in case you have truly no idea where to fit those bottles in your already stuffed-to-the-gills fridge.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Of all the things I have bought that I didn't need, this is one of my favorites. Beer is hard to get out of the cardboard carrier in the top of my fridge. While just taking them out and sitting them on the shelf would have solved this problem as well, this solution is more fun. They float and technically it does make a tiny bit of extra space under the beer for small things like cheese or something." —AbbyValentine

    Get two magnet strips (holds a six pack) from Amazon for $29.99.

    5. 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.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I recently set up a little Command hook mask corner by my apartment door, and it has been SO HELPFUL — instead of rooting through my masks to find the one that matches best (I'm a vain critter at heart) I can see all the clean ones I have available right in front of me, and don't forget to put it on when I'm in a rush. I also use it to hang my sports masks after I sanitize them and am waiting for them to dry! As for how the Command hooks work — these have an adhesive on the back for easy application to the wall, which you can pull down on once you're ready to uninstall it without doing any damage to the wallpaper or paint." —Emma Lord, BuzzFeed Staff

    Get it from Amazon for $3.60+ (available in different sizes and with different numbers of hooks).

    6. A slim storage tower so you can maximize even the tiniest unused space in your apartment.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This storage tower is awesome and such a space saver. I live in a small apartment with little cabinet space, so I used this tower for my spices right in between my stove and refrigerator. It was also the easiest thing to assemble (no tools required)!" —S.J.

    Get it from Amazon for $21.10+.

    7. A durable, three-pocket folding car trunk organizer designed to help you rein in whatever mayhem has been going on in the trunk for way too long.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "It was just what I needed for my messy and unorganized truck! I wanted something not too bulky, but just the right size to help me reorganize my trunk. This product did that for me. I was also concerned that it’ll move when I drove but luckily there is Velcro on the bottom that secures it in place while you drive, and sure enough it did just that! This product does not take up a lot of space and gives you the right amount of measure to place other things like groceries and a suitcase. I am completely satisfied and content with this product! I wish I had it all along!" —Sheneese

    Get it from Amazon for $20.83.

    8. A purse organizer for anyone who can never find anything without digging around for what seems like forever. Plus, you can easily just pull it out and move it to a new purse in one motion!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this organizer so much! It’s lightweight, too, so it doesn’t add extra weight to your bag. I feel so organized and will no longer be stressed looking for things in my purse!" —Sarah

    Get it from Amazon for $15.88+ (available in 12 colors and seven sizes).

    9. A set of two wood-top shelf risers to help you squeeze a little more surface space out of cabinets, countertops, tables, and desks. You can even use it as a laptop riser!

    Open Spaces

    Promising review: "These are wonderful. I was able to reduce clutter and expand our workable counter space in a tiny NYC kitchen with one of these. The other I'm planning to use on our desk to straighten it up. They have a great design and are a well-made product." —Laurel T.

    Get them from Open Spaces for $72.

    10. An adhesive ledge shelf set perfect for anyone who could use more wall storage but would do *anything* to avoid breaking out the drill.

    Four different sized shelves on the wall with assorted bathroom things in them
    Amazon

    Promising review: "These looks so good, are super easy to install, and are highly functional. The end of my kitchen counter always had keys, phones, whatever, and now it’s clear." —TC&Mina

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in white and blue).

    11. An acrylic organizer to wrangle everything that usually clutters up your sink area. Plus, it comes in a variety of colors

    The organizer holding a variety of beauty products
    AnaMaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I'm not exaggerating when I say this thing is the best investment ever. I can fit so 👏 damn 👏 much 👏 inside of this four-drawerd thing. Here are all the products that I currently have in there: 32 lipsticks, six blushes and bronzers, two large highlighter sticks, one foundation bottle, three concealers, two contouring sticks, two rollerball perfumes, two primers, and the bottom drawer contains so many lip pencils, eyeliners, and eyeshadow sticks that I actually didn't even bother counting (but I'm going to guess AT LEAST 30 of them, I swear). If you have A TON OF MAKEUP (which I do), then you may still have to store some extra stuff in your bags — but either way, this container holds SO much. But the real winner winner chicken dinner here? I have easy access to all the makeup I use every single day and can see all of it at once. I don't have to dig around the bottomless pit that is one of my many, many makeup bags anymore — I just have to open and close a drawer." —AnaMaria Glavan, BuzzFeed Staff

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in 17 colors).

    12. A four-tier storage shelf you can place right over the top of your toilet to hold a lot without taking up too much of your precious floor space.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Great storage capacity. Bought for my son in his new apartment. Very little storage space in the vanity and no shelves on the wall. This gave him a huge amount of storage space for his clean towels and toiletries." —Jnic

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    13. Some under-bed storage containers to hold all of the things that are usually piled on your bed or draped over your chair...because they have nowhere else to go.

    amazon.com

    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 $14.97+ (available in three colors).

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

    The bed risers
    Amazon

    They come with four small risers, and four large risers — you can use just the small risers to elevate your bed 3 inches, just the large risers to elevate your bed 5 inches, or combine the two to elevate your bed 8 inches.

    Promising review: "These bed risers couldn't have been easier to use. No sliding around on the hardwood floor and the bed was very stable. The risers worked as advertised and I am completely satisfied." —Steve Parsons

    Another promising review: "I really like the storage space this creates. Great for those looking for tidier organization. They are also very sturdy. The bed does not wobble or anything, even on top of both lifts. I do like that you can choose to use one or the other or both risers. Lots of customization options." —Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of eight from Amazon for $18.29.

    15. A tea bag organizer because, after all these years, it's finally time to get rid of those half-empty boxes that look messy no matter how you stack 'em.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This organizer can hold approximately 100 tea bags.

    Promising review: "I bought this as a gift twice before I bought it for myself. I love it so, so much! It has eliminated all the boxes of tea bags cluttering up my cupboards and opened up some space I can use for my loose leaf teas. Everything is easy to find and pull out, and you can remove each little plastic holder to fill with ease. Tea is now so much simpler and enjoyable, and no boxes of bags lay forgotten in the back, as I discovered when I pulled out all the boxes to fill this. My shorter roommate can now reach for her teas without getting the step stool, too. The design is simple yet elegant enough to leave on the counter. I highly recommend this organizer for tea lovers." —Alexia

    Get it from Amazon for $22.49+ (available in three sizes/styles).

    16. A macramé produce hammock for anyone looking into alternative fruit storing methods due to their already small kitchen being entirely taken over by fancy gadgets and appliances.

    KnappsKnots / Via Etsy

    Knapps Knots is a San Diego–based small business owned by Anastasia Knapp who is quite possibly making the cutest macrame and wood crafts you've ever seen.

    Promising review: "Absolutely loved it! Perfect if you have little counter space." —Jessi

    Get it from KnappsKnots on Etsy for $27.90+ (available in two sizes and 11 colors).

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

    Reviewer image of the shower curtain with a variety of shampoos, hair brushes, and other bathroom items stored in the pockets
    amazon.com

    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 left over. My husband's back scrubber, my shampoo and haircare, 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 $19.99.

    18. A metal desk organizer that'll help keep your WFH office supplies from cluttering up your desk. Plus, it'll lift your monitor up a little bit so you can stop craning your neck all day long.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Perfect for my needs! Adding additional monitor to my home office setup, this lifts my laptop to align with it. Also gives me room for storage and prevents me from having to constantly look down. Very sturdy, highly recommend." —Jennifer Lewis

    Get it from Amazon for $24.98+ (available in two colors).

    19. 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.

    reviewer photo showing the silverware organizer along with several other kitchen utensils in the drawer
    amazon.com

    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 from Amazon for $10.24.

    20. A closet rod you can hang from your existing one so you can finally fit all of your clothes in your closet in an organized fashion.

    The doubling rod hanging from the top built-in closet rod on rubber-tipped hooks
    Amazon

    Promising review: "Sturdy and lightweight, this closet rod doubled my available space in seconds. There is plenty of space on the top rod for longer shirts and tops and shorter ones fit perfectly on the lower rod without grazing the floor. Hangers stay in place and don't slide to one end or the other based on how heavy items are and so far the rod hasn't sagged or bowed at all. And I have all my sweatshirts and heavy fleece jackets on the bottom rod. Space will obviously depend on the height of the closet rod you hang this from, but I would highly recommend this for anyone with need of more closet space!!" —CCBunE

    Get it from Amazon for $29.09.

    21. A broom and mop organizer you can mount on a wall in case your disorganized closet stresses you out every time you peek inside.

    Reviewer's before-and-after of their broom and appliances on the floor, then held up by this organizer
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Repeat customer! I purchased one to organize the garden tools (rake, hoe, cultivator, shovel, etc.) in our garage and by alternating the tops of the tools up/down, was able to fit them neatly in the holder. Liked it so much, going to install another next to it for the other items. The hooks are a nice feature to hold our gloves and a simple plastic bag to hold things when needed." —Rob C.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.97.

    22. Some floating shelves perfect for anyone whose book collection is steadily outgrowing the tiny bookshelf you optimistically thought would be large enough. Plus, these require ZERO floor space.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Saves space! I’m pretty basic when it comes to tools and installing things, but I was able to hang these alone without any problems. I love them and they look great! Would buy again if I need more." —Brandy Helton

    Get them from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in two sizes).

    23. A gorgeous wood-and-metal shoe rack customized to fit your entryway so you can remember what your floors looked like before they were covered with your shoe collection.

    24. An organizer you can conveniently hang over your door to expand your pantry in a more orderly way.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These come with their hangers and will add considerable storage. I put one on the inside of our pantry door and the second on the back of the door going from laundry room to garage. I initially was interested in getting one for the pantry, but the second was a nice bonus and it makes a great place to hold cleaning supplies. Well made, excellent price." —Kimberlee

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $14.97.

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

    amazon.com

    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 10-pack of small jars from Amazon for $55 (also available in 24 small jars, 12 large jars, and 24 large jars).

    Wayfair

    Promising review: “The rack is nice looking. It makes for a beautiful display of my wineglasses and the solid black color allows the eye to be drawn to the labels on the bottles. It is simple and nice decor for my kitchen.” —John

    Get it from Wayfair for $39.99 (originally $49.99; available in two colors). 

    27. A key and mail drop-zone caddy so 1) you always know where your keys are and 2) the kitchen table doesn't wind up covered in last week's mail.

    brown caddy with pocket for letters and five hooks for keys
    Amazon

    Promising review: "Perfect!! It comes with screws and anchors, but I hung it up with Command strips to avoid holes in the wall of our rental. It stays up great. It's like one-inch shorter than some of the ads we get in the mail, but hey it's all paper. It bends to fit! We hang our keys on it, I hang my wristlet, and my boyfriend hangs his back scratcher. :P We also put our sunglasses in with the mail so we can grab those on our way out." —FishyBirdMLS

    Get it from Amazon for $10.25+ (available in seven colors).

    28. An acrylic plant hanger for anyone whose plant collection is steadily outgrowing their apartment.

    Indoor Window Gardens / Etsy

    Indoor Window Gardens is a small, family-owned business based in South Carolina. The acrylic shelves come assembled, and you can secure them with a single fastener. 

    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).

    29. A cabinet door organizer to maximize the amount of stuff one lil' cubby can hold.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $14.87.

    30. An expandable rack in case that pipe under your sink is making it hard to make use of the cabinet space down there.

    amazon.com

    Measures 15 inches long x 11.25 inches wide x 15 inches high and can expand to 25 inches long.

    Promising review: "I'm so glad I bought this. I have a 24-inch vanity in my bathroom and this fit perfectly. I have it extended to about 23 inches and it holds sturdy, though I can see if you were to extend it to its full length it gets weak in the middle. I liked it so much that I ordered another one for the kitchen. I got some clear bins to help organize bottles and other goodies I keep in the bath." —Marlene R.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.97+ (available in three finishes).

    31. A rustic, wall-mounted coat rack that'll keep your variety of jackets from piling up on a chair that was meant for sitting, while also offering some shelf space to hold extra items that might not fit anywhere else.

    Distressed Me Not/Etsy

    Distressed Me Not is a family-owned small business based in North Carolina that creates handmade rustic and beachy pieces that'll make your home feel warm and toasty.

    Promising review: "We live in the mountains and have lots of coats, scarves, hats all over the place. This rack is twice as big as what we had before, with the added attraction of having a shelf on top. I went to a little antique shop and got a few things to put on top, and my husband and I really like the look! The shelf is well made and of a quality that it is built to last." —Bev Linder

    Get it from Distressed Me Not on Etsy for $29+ (available in 10 sizes and with or without a top shelf).

    32. A hanging caddy you can attach to a showerhead or curtain rod to hold all of those things that are usually cluttering the corners of your shower.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This caddy is amazing. NO RUST! OMG. Can't begin to articulate how nice that is. I was concerned a bar of soap wouldn't work on this (all of the pictures showed liquid soap), but I was wrong. Fits just fine on the lower shelf, in any of the three spots that are available. And the stretchy band accommodates my razor on the side (and finally, my razor doesn't fall off!!!!), and my husband puts his larger razor in one of the circles on the bottom. I take it off of the showerhead once a week to spray clean it, rinse it, and wipe it down to take off all the filmy soap, but this is so pretty, modern, and wonderful in that it doesn't rust. And it's nice and flat, it doesn't stick out like the metal ones do. There is a stretchy band across the top and bottom parts, to accommodate much larger bottles of shampoo if needed. A real winner. Can't believe I've never seen this option in a store. I'm so happy with this purchase." —H H

    Get it from Amazon for $20 (available in three colors).

    33. A hanging Roll Keeper closet organizer that holds 16 rolls and will revolutionize the way you store your towels and T-shirts if you have wayyyyy too many.

    Get it from The Roll Keeper on Etsy for $16.99 and from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in two colors).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have a ridiculously small bathroom and a super-small vanity. After too many instances of my dryer and straightener falling to the floor, I went searching for an option to get them off the nonexistent counter and onto the towel holder next to my sink. This product has done the trick — it helps me keep my counter space organized and provides me with a great, heat-resistant holder to place them in while I'm working through my hair. Highly recommend!" —Amazon Customer

    amazon.com

    Each cap organizer can hold up to 10 items.

    Promising review: "I give 5 stars for this hat organizer! I wish I discovered this product sooner. It is VERY easy to add onto a hanger. Simply open the flap, slip it over the hanger and reattach the Velcro. The Velcro strip is wide and sturdy to prevent the entire thing from coming undone. Even after adding weight from the hats, the Velcro didn’t even budge. Overall the product is sewn well and appears like it does in the pictures. The clips are sturdy and can grasp thinner hats just as well as thick hats. This would be useful for other items like belts, hair accessories, and scarfs too!!" —Tracy

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    36. A closet organizer to keep your winter clothes and bedding ~out of sight and out of mind~ once the warm weather hits. Then when you're done using them, just fold 'em up for easy storage!

    Promising review: "Before I bought these zipper bags my closet was full, I had no room to move anything around. After these bags, I not only have more room, I was able to move all of my things from out of the hallway closet and into my bedroom!! I combined two closets in one, where I thought I had no room. Wow. You can easily have three pillows per bag, and I fit one extra thick queen size comforter into one bag. All things that didn't even fit in my closet beforehand. Now I have room for more!!" —QL
