    1. A simple and elegant faux leather Lemome planner with a pen holder and inner pocket so you can easily have what you need to keep your plans in order at all times. Use it to write notes, remember upcoming events, and more.

    Amazon

    What it includes:

    –Each monthly spread contains an overview of the month and a notes section

    –Includes calendar stickers, two ribbon bookmarks, a yearly overview, list of holidays, and contacts section

    –Reference information for states, capitals, and time zones

    –88 additional note pages

    Promising review: "I have finally found the day planner that is PERFECT for me. Most are too big or too small. I don't like the silly ones that are, I guess, for teenaged girls with images of kittens or flowers. I don't like the ones that have a slot for every 30 min. This one is big enough that I don't have to scrimp my writing. But it's small enough so that if I need to take it with me, I can easily fit it into my tote. It's very stylish looking so I can impress my friends. :-) And I love the little holder on the outside where I can hook in a pen. Don't have to search around for something to write my appts. I'm finally happy with my day planner." —Marianne Beasley

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in two sizes and four colors).

    2. A wrinkle release spray for mornings when you really don't have time to iron, but you need to wear THAT specific shirt that's all crumbled up in the back of your drawer.

    amazon.com

    This handy spray is a wrinkle remover, static remover, odor eliminator, fabric refresher, and an ironing aid. All you have to do is spray it on the garment, tug it a bit, smooth it out, and hang it up. Within minutes, it should be good to go!

    Promising review: "As a college student with a full course load, I'm in and out of my room all the time. This helps me keep my clothes wrinkle-free without having to waste time ironing them. It's also great as it leaves a VERY nice smell on my clothes." —Seth

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $13.94.

    3. A backseat purse holder that'll keep your bag from spilling all over the passenger seat or car floor.

    Amazon

    Plus, the hooks have a side-opening attachment for easy installation, so they won't damage your seats.

    Promising review: "I love these! I recently purchased a smaller car and don't have room for my purse in the front seat anymore. These books are awesome and sturdy." —Erin

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95 (available in two colors).

    4. A fabric defuzzer for safely removing fuzz, lint, and pilling from your favorite sweatshirt.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this on a whim in last attempts to save my favorite duvet cover. The pills had gotten to the point where it was seriously uncomfortable to sleep with them getting all up in my leg space. I thought I was going to have to get a new duvet cover entirely. Along came this lil' baby. Not only is my duvet cover basically brand new, but I have found a new hobby. I’m depilling everything. Sweatshirts, leggings, blankets, socks, anything that looks like it needs some love. It does the job quickly and leaves everything looking fresh." —Sydney Jensen

    Get it on Amazon for $12.99 (available in five colors).

    5. A pack of velvet hangers so you can fit more into your closet and not worry about all of your shirts sliding right off after you just finished putting your laundry away.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These hangers are seriously low profile enough to give you close to twice the amount of space in your closet. Probably not necessarily a good thing, but I revamped my closet with these instead of donating a large portion of clothes to Goodwill (although I had already donated two other closets full until a friend recommended these hangers) and now my clothes all fit neatly! And they are sturdy, no more cracking hangers when you pull off an item of clothing in a tizzy. I'm very happy with my purchase of a few packs of these hangers. It cost pennies in comparison to a closet organizer system." —Lisa427

    Get a 50-pack on Amazon for $22.99 (available in three colors).

    6. A set of bedsheet fasteners, because no one likes to wake up in the morning and realize their entire fitted sheet is now bunched up in the corner of their bed.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These work really well! I have a 14-inch mattress, so keeping the fitted sheet well secured has been a struggle until now. One of the best purchases I've made. I followed someone else's advice here of turning the sheet inside out, putting the fasteners on, then putting the sheet on the mattress. Made them very easy to use." —Jayne Voyt

    Get a pack of four on Amazon for $8.99 (available in two designs).

    7. A convenient bedside caddy for when you don't have space for a nightstand, but you still need a place for your glasses, tablet, and journal. You can easily attach it to the side of any bed or table with two pairs of hook and loop fasteners.

    Amazon

    Promising Review: "I hate the appearance of a cluttered nightstand, but obviously want to be able to keep all the handy necessities nearby. This is the perfect solution for that. It's flexible enough that I imagine it would work with a number of different frame types but sturdy enough that it holds everything." —DTNJ

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in six colors).

    8. A mesh desk organizer that'll help keep your desk clutter-free and set up for success. You can store folders and paperwork in the upper slots and fill the lower compartments with notebooks, push pins, sticky notes, and more.

    Amazon

    Promising Review: "Wonderful product that meets expectations. I bought this product since it had several features I was looking for — file sectionals for papers, shelf for folders or papers, drawer bins for various items. It really saved me from buying several different products or buying something with features I didn't need. The construction and material are solid and sturdy like you'll find in high-end offices. The drawers work seamlessly, sliding as if riding on air. Product description was spot on. Delivery was fast. Packaging was sensible." —Sid

    Get it from Amazon for $22.87 (available in black or silver).

    9. A three-tier storage cart that can hold anything that needs sorting, from bathroom toiletries to makeup products to craft supplies.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Well designed cart. 80-year-old lady able to put it together with ease. Perfect size, love the color, sides are tall enough to hold small books. Can roll it anywhere I chose, sturdy. Would purchase again." —Geeg

    Get it from Amazon for $44.13+ (available in three colors).

    10. A set of drawer organizers to keep your socks paired and your favorite undergarments in sight.

    amazon.com

    The set includes four bins: one with six cells for scarves and tights, eight square cells for underwear, seven wide cells for bras, and 24 small cells for socks.

    Promising review: "I love these things, they’re so versatile. I have them all over: drawers, closet shelves, cabinets. I use them for more than just underwear too. I use them for dry art supplies in open shelves and just about anywhere else I need to organize." —Kindle Mac

    Get it from Amazon for $13.87 (available in seven colors).

    11. A rotating makeup organizer that'll keep all of your daily beauty products from being spread across your vanity or counter.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "If you pay attention, it’s easy to assemble. I really didn’t think it would hold as many items as it does. My counter is a lot less cluttered than before and my morning routine is a lot easier and faster. It also looks nicer than I expected." —dpacker

    Get it on Amazon for $21.99 (available in black or white).

    12. A dual-sided hanging organizer for all of your small possessions, like hair accessories, tights, or beauty products.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is a very well made closet organizer! The pockets are able to expand to allow for various items to fit. I put underwear and socks in the smallest, upper pockets and tank tops and leggings/genie pants in the bottom large pockets. The middle size pockets fit winter socks, bras, or two pairs of athletic socks nicely. Plus, the pockets are clear so you can see what is in each! Very pleased with my purchase and would definitely buy again." —Awhatchamacallit

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available in white or blue).

    13. A mesh wall-mounted mail sorter with key hooks and a mini cork board so you won't misplace your keys or lose any important bills.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Makes being organized easy. All my mail goes here until it's sorted. I mounted it with pushpins and it stayed up! The seller does provide nails to hang it up more securely if necessary." —Daniba Dan-Princewill

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in two sizes).

    14. A free-standing organizer with three fabric shelves and two bins to give you an extra place for the shoes and clothes that just won't fit in your closet (no matter how many times you try to wrestle them in).

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I really like this product. Fits perfectly in my closet for some additional storage and makes it look super neat. Assembly was a breeze, took about 5-10 minutes by myself in order to complete it." —Kyndra

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    15. A set of three mirror hooks, because it will be so much faster to grab your bag off the hook and simultaneously check your lipstick while heading out the door. Plus, they make pretty wall decor.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "This arrived in perfect condition, not one scratch! They make for beautiful wall decor or for hanging your purses and bags. I’m in love!" —JessicaChavez

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $29.

    16. A small chrome rack for your belts, necklaces, ties, or scarves so you can keep them untangled, visible, and wrinkle-free for optimal accessorizing.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Very strong and well made. I like that it holds many belts. It's so much better than having a clutter of belts in a drawer. This makes it easier to store and easier to access each belt. The metal is heavy duty. I can't imagine it breaking ever. Hangs well in my closet without any bulkiness. I would recommend to anyone to store belts or ties instead of keeping them in a drawer." —Sassie23

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    17. A countertop hair tool holder to keep all of those pesky cords from taking over your room or bathroom.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I LOVE THIS! It makes my bathroom look way more organized and I don’t have a TON of cords everywhere. The material is very nice. You can tell it wasn’t cheaply made. The price is definitely right for the product. I’m VERY happy with this new addition to my bathroom!" —Brittney Knautz

    Get it from Amazon for $34.90.

    18. A seat gap filler guaranteed to prevent your phone and keys from disappearing on your car floor.

    Amazon

    FYI, this is a successful Shark Tank product!

    Promising review: "I have to admit, my expectations weren't very high. I thought it was more of a joke when my husband got this for me for Christmas. Little did I realize, it would be one of my favorite gadgets ever! I don't know if I realized just how many things went missing in my seat gap. It has really saved a lot of things from disappearing into that black hole. It was easy enough to fit into my car and it's soft! It's just like an extension of my seat, except it fits every curve of my seat! There really isn't another product that compares to this. That's why I gave it five stars!" —Tessa Forbes

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    19. A set of clothing dividers that'll save you time and energy on digging through your entire closet just to find one jacket.

    Amazon

    The tags come with 48 labels so you can customize them to your individual needs.

    Promising review: "Every time I look in my closet at these guys separating my black cardigans from my black T-shirts from my black suits... (you get the point), it sparks joy! People may think you’re a weird OCD freak, but they are just secretly jealous and will want some." —Kensington

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $9.99 (available in four styles).

    20. A mousepad to help you keep your daily tasks at top of mind.

    Amazon

    This combination notepad and mousepad has a space for a pen and has different categories you can fill in so you know what to tackle each day.

    Promising review: "The calendar is incredible handy for keeping track of projects at work. There's plenty of room for writing down daily tasks — I've been known to cram in several tasks in a day's column for particularly busy weeks. The spot for the pen is really handy, too. And I love the positive affirmations for each day! The whole thing is a great vibe for the week. Quality wise this product is excellent. The paper is sturdy, and each week tears off easily from the side. It arrived plastic wrapped and in good condition." —Katie Marie

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95 (available in four designs).

    21. Some vacuum-sealed pop containers so you can organize your cereal, flour, snacks, and more in a neat way that'll keep them nice and fresh.

    Rebecca O'Connell / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    See a BuzzFeeder's full review of these space savers (#1).

    Promising review: "Great for pantry organization. I ended up with three sizes. The tall thinner ones for spaghetti. The medium sized containers fit a 5 lb. bag of flour. The largest containers fit a 7 lb. bag of brown sugar. Worth the cost if you are tired of your pantry looking messy. Based on the quality I expect these to last many years without needing to be replaced. Air tight lids work well and are very simple to use and clean." —Tonya murray

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in 12 sizes).

    22. A double decker dish rack with a water spout that'll save you some space and help keep your kitchen counter dry.

    Food52

    Get it from Food52 for $70 (available in two colors).

    23. A Goodful infusion pitcher sure to convince you to drink more water once it's flavored with yummy things like cucumbers, lemons, melon, or whatever your heart desires.

    Macy's

    Promising review: "Super nice infuser pitcher that is a great size. Fits into the side door of the fridge. Kids had lots of fun adding different fruit. Highly recommend." —Tami

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line at Macy's for $19.99 (originally $28.99).

    24. A broom holder that'll also organize your mop, gardening tools and other awkward items that are usually leaning against your wall and constantly falling over.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this product! I cleaned my laundry room last week and wanted to organize all my brooms, mops and even mini vacuum. This handled the job — and then some! Installed in minutes and is very strong. I feel comfortable with one of the items that was moderately heavy compared to the rest. Love the added hooks, as well." —Judyque

    Get it from Amazon for $13.97.

    25. A pan holder so you can maximize the space in your cabinets and help prevent your pots and pans from getting scratched up.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Fits and works perfectly! It was easy to put together too and honestly I wish I had bought something like this years ago as it will keep all of my non scratch pans unscratched vs the pyramid style stack I had them in." —Sarah W

    Get it from Amazon for $14.87 (available in two colors).

    26. And a workbook to guide you through some serious decluttering and organizing in every aspect of your life — the time is now!

    Amazon

    Cluttered Mess to Organized Success Workbook by Cassandra Aarssen is full of time management worksheets, cleaning checklists, pages on financial planning, meal planning, and more.

    Promising review: "Best book ever! I love her intro and confession about ADHD. I’ve purchased many books on ADHD and have been truly disappointed by the fluff and lack of real help. I made it through college by always writing things down in my pocket calendar. Finally a book with all the best tips in one! Not just help on cleaning your house but putting your life in order. I’m prepping my daughter for college now and will guide her with this book and a planner. What a truly amazing book!" —Heidi

    Get it from Amazon for $14.84.

    Don't worry, you got this!
