    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-inch 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 $22.87+ (available in two finishes).

    2. A pack of vacuum bags for those things you never really wear or use, but can't seem to get rid of. Now you can store your extra clothes, towel, blankets, and more without the usual bulk so you'll have an easier time finding somewhere to fit them.

    These bags are made with anti-microbial materials so you don't have to worry about things like mold, mildew, or bacteria building up. Plus, it comes with a free travel pump!

    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.

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

    3. A six-piece set of refrigerator bins to help your fridge hold everything you and your roommates overstuff it with.

    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 $34.99.

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

    amazon.com

    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

    5. 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 $14.97 (available in seven colors).

    6. 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.

    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 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 $18.67.

    Former BuzzFeeder Emmy Favilla has this shower curtain and loves it! Check out her full review (#2) to learn more.

    7. A sturdy ClosetMaid tiered over-the-door wire rack cleverly designed to give you an impressive amount of extra storage space.

    Promising review: "I love this sturdy rack. It's very well-made and I love the choice of shelves. It's very easy to install and is adjustable for bottles of different heights, etc. It looks very good and I do recommend this product." —Target reviewer

    Get it from Target for $33.99.

    8. A durable, three-pocket folding car trunk organizer that'll rein in the mayhem spreading through your vehicle.

    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 $25.11.

    9. A purse organizer so you can regain control over your jam-packed handbag.

    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 13 colors and seven sizes).

    10. A styling station to keep your essentials from always cluttering up your minimal counter space. This holder is heat-resistant and can be hung on a towel rack for easy access!

    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 non-existent 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

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95+ (available in four colors). Or, check out an over-cabinet styling station.

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

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Sturdy and light-weight, 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 gracing 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 $13.57.

    12. A sneaky cabinet you can install behind a door if your remaining storage options are next to none. It's both slim and tall, managing to hold as much as *five medicine cabinets* without being in the way.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a must-have for any small space. My bathroom has no medicine cabinet, just a mirror, and is pretty small, so storage is a huge deal. My girlfriend came across this item, so I figured I would give it a shot. I know it states it needs a two-person install, but I put this together and hung it in about an hour by myself with very minimal effort. This fits so much stuff, it really is amazing, and it does not impede any operation of the door. I can't fully explain how much I recommend this. I'm about to order the mirror version for my bedroom for colognes and little knick-knacks to declutter the countertops." —happy shaver

    Get it from Amazon for $189.99+ (available in two styles).

    13. An overhead garage storage rack so you can keep way more stuff in your garage and still be able to fit your car in there.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Very nice and sturdy. Not difficult to install, but it is time consuming. Someone wrote they installed it in 40 minutes. That's just not true (unless you have four people). It takes at least two to three hours as there are about 60 sets of bolts and nuts, plus the time it takes to measure, mark, find studs, and drive the anchors (all above your head on a ladder). Yet, the work pays off. The instructions are fairly easy to follow and well-illustrated, and the final product is sturdy and looks sharp. The shipping was incredibly fast and arrived in perfect shape. I put approximately 400 lbs. of weight on it and it seems to be holding very well with no sagging. It says it can hold up to 600 lbs., which seems about right. I would highly recommend this product." —ChadL

    Get it from Amazon for $229.99+ (available in five colors).

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

    amazon.com

    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!!" —Ms. Lawrence

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in four colors).

    15. A hanging purse organizer so you actually have a place for all of your bags to live.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I ordered two of these, and I am so pleased. They held all my handbags (except two large tote bags), and I have quite a few. I was able to put two purses in most of the slots, and three or four small ones together in a couple of slots. This really made a difference in the organization of my handbags and makes my closet look so much neater. If you are considering this product, I highly recommend. Good value for the price!!!" —Brenda V

    Get it from Amazon for $6.64.

    16. A three-tier metal utility cart with three roomy shelves you can use as a nightstand, spice rack, bathroom organizer, or whatever you can think of to make your life easier! Just roll it wherever you need it, adjust the shelf height to your preference, and admire how its stylish design adds a certain je ne sais quoi to any room.

    A splash of color *and* a way to organize your life? Well, what are you waiting for?!

    Promising review: "My daughter is using this to store her makeup and toiletries. It was easy to assemble and is very sturdy. It wheels on the carpet very nicely, and I love that the shelves are adjustable in height. It holds a lot of items, and it looks nice in her room. I would definitely buy another one if we needed additional storage." —M.Winkle

    Get it from Amazon for $35.99+ (available in four colors).

    17. Some floating shelves perfect for anyone whose book collection is steadily outgrowing the tiny bookshelf you optimistically thought would be large enough.

    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 $28.99+ (available in two sizes).

    18. Some under-bed storage containers to be a home for all of the clutter in your room that just sort of ~hangs around~ due to the fact that your closet and other drawers are completely maxed out.

    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 4 will fit under my queen bed." —Kimberly Dorn

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in five colors).

    19. 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 $14.97.

    20. 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).

    21. 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 on Amazon for $9.99 (available in three colors and four sizes).

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

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    FYI, it installs like a regular outlet cover. Of course except with the wonderful shelf. 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 an extra storing space. My laundry room is very limited so any added storing 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 $5.69 (available in three colors). And check out a larger outlet shelf.

    23. A super cool floating bedside table that takes up less space than a regular night stand, and easily attaches to your bed frame so you can keep your essentials within reach at all times.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in four sizes) or from BedShelfie on Etsy for $35.99 (more sizes available here).

    24. A stealthy storage ottoman for anyone who has already stuffed all of their drawers and closets to full capacity.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I live in a small apartment so I like having hidden storage wherever I can. I also like putting my feet up when I watch TV at night. This is the perfect piece of inexpensive furniture and stylish decor that fits both of those needs. It’s sturdy enough for me to sit on, but I don’t really use it for that purpose. I hide away some electronic equipment that I want to keep handy yet contained... It’s super functional and that’s why I love it." —Jessica

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99+ (available in three colors).

    25. 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.

    Promising review: "Our family is growing, and I realized there's a lot of space in a closet that isn't being used. That's how I came across these, and now I have them in all the closets. They make getting clothes so easy, and now we have more space for the growing family! XoXO!" —Megan

    Get it from The Roll Keeper on Etsy for $15.99 (available in black or maroon) or from Amazon Handmade for $19.99 (available in black or teal).

    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).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Recently removed the radiators out of my old house, and the bathroom had a narrow space that just looked empty. This fit perfectly, providing much-needed storage, and keeps the room from looking cluttered. Easy to assemble and sturdy enough that I am not afraid of it falling apart. Love this!" —Amber Kuhn

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in two colors).

    The hamper hung over a door
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Very convenient. I'd been looking for new laundry baskets to keep in my bathroom so my family didn't just throw clothes into a pile on the floor. There isn't a lot of floor space in there, so I was looking for a tall narrow basket and found these. They are great. I put one on the back of the door and one hanging from a towel rack and labeled one for light colors and, without even asking, my family has been putting their clothes in the correct bin, and I just need to unzip and let the clothes fall into the laundry basket and they are ready to go into the wash. I really like them." —D. Jelte

    Get it from Amazon for $13.96+ (available in seven colors).

    30. 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.

    Amazon

    The compact but sizable rack can be adjusted based on the width of your sink (it stays in place with the aid of suction cups) and all of the parts can be disassembled and rinsed in the dishwasher.

    Promising review: "This purchase turned out to be one of things I didn't know I needed until I had it. It functions as not only an over-sink drying rack, but also a cutlery holder, kitchen utensil holder, and a utility cleaning holder that can be used for cleaning supplies and brushes etc. The product is sturdy, the legs have suction cups so that it doesn't slide. It seems fairly durable in my nearly week of usage, and its fairly configurable. All of the different sections can be placed in different spots to fit the aesthetic and function of whatever kind of kitchen you've got. It does come disassembled (the main truss) so there are some screws and washers and instructions on how to put it together, a process which took 10 minutes. Surprisingly good purchase, well worth the cost. I have so much free space now." —Darrel Pendergrass

    Get it from Amazon for $69.95.

    32. Some super strong magnetic strips to help you squeeze some brews into your fridge that's already stuffed to the gills.

    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 thinks like cheese or something." —AbbyValentine

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

    33. And finally, a lid organizer that'll make sealing up your leftovers less of a hassle.

    amazon.com

    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).
