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

    8. An over-the-sink drying rack you can roll right up when you're done with it so it doesn't taking up a huge chunk of prime countertop real estate.

    Promising review: "Although I use a dishwasher, I was very frustrated when I washed delicate glasses, knives, and large pans by hand and had nowhere to drain them except the counter, which always got wet despite the use of a dish towel. When it arrived, I opened the Surpahs and fell in love. It works perfectly, stays solidly in place on my double-sided sink, and allows my items to dry in half the time. It also frees up counter space. It's rubberized and can be easily washed, dried, rolled up, and stored in a minimum amount of space. Great item. Highly recommended." —L. Burr

    Get it from Amazon for $22.98+ (available in three sizes).

    9. 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.
