1. A bedside pocket for storing common nightstand clutter (mainly so you don't have to keep getting out of bed to get the important stuff).

Promising review: "I was looking for something that I could hang or place near my bed/nightstand that didn't require me to open drawers (nightstand), and have my tv remotes/drug store readers/books handy within arm's reach. I found it in this caddy! It's so easy to install, just lift your mattress and voilà! It does not move around or fall off, and it looks great! And to answer someone's question as to whether it conforms to any type of platform or bed frame; I assume it should. On my bed, the 'flap' that goes under the mattress (or in between your boxspring and mattress) is somewhat malleable. The flap has a semi-rigid insert inside and should conform to your bed frame. It did mine." —MouseGet it from Amazon for $14.03, Bed Bath & Beyond for $14.99, or UncommonGoods for $20+ (available in two sizes).

2. A toiletry holder that'll grip to shiny surfaces in your bathroom for easy access to your essentials in the shower or above the sink.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I had been looking for a good shower caddy for awhile now. This one is great! we have a shower unit and it adheres to the fiberglass shower walls like a champ. NO adhesive or sticky mess to worry about. We keep our tooth brushes, toothpaste, and razors in it. The surface area of the caddy does a good job of sticking to the wall even when it is loaded down with all of our stuff. We haven't seen just how much weight it can handle, but we didn't buy it for holding a large bottle of shampoo or body wash, so yeah. Other than that, it is perfect!" —Caleb P.

Get it from Amazon for $14.72+ (available in four colors) or from Urban Outfitters for $18 (available in dark gray and white).

6. A bottle loft that'll give your fridge some extra space and also just make you look cool as hell.

amazon.com, Bottleloft / Via uncommongoods.sjv.io

Bottles are able to hang from the ceiling of your refrigerator with these adhesive magnetic strips. The magnets are super freakin' strong, so you don't have to worry about the bottle's weight detaching from the strip!

Promising review: "I bought these refrigerator strips for holding bottles to the roof of the fridge (a great space saver and a cool idea) with the thought that, 'of course, it won't work and I'll kick myself for spending the dough.' Well, I was WRONG, and I am so happy to say. The BottleLoft works perfectly, just as it designed to do, and I only wish I had a bigger fridge so I could have more strips! I am using it for holding Mexican beer (Coronitas), and it is handy and gives me space beneath for extra smaller jars of condiments. Uncommonly good idea! (Btw, it shipped on time, no problems at all)." —Bev

Get two strips from Amazon for $29.99 or UncommonGoods for $38.

7. A trendy stoneware utensil holder with a convenient notch for displaying your tablet so you can *thrive* in your kitchen (and not worry about spilling food all over your iPad).

Promising review: "Great product — it looks better in person. I thought it would be rough stoneware, but it is smooth almost like an enamel or what have you. It fits an iPad (1st generation) and iPad mini WITH a life proof case on with no problem. It also fits a fair amount of items inside." —Christina Get it from UncommonGoods for $60.

8. A modular purse organizer because let's be honest here, who the heck knows what to do with all of their handbags?! Well I do now, thanks to this ~handy~ thing.

The adjustable panels let you create cubby holes that are the perfect fit for any combination of your bags. Some reviewers mentioned the instructions can be a little confusing, but once together, it's solid and sturdy! Yay, I can finally stop stuffing my purses under my bed.

9. A wall-mounted hook shelf you can use in the entryway to keep coats and keys, or in the bathroom for towels and toiletries. Add a lil' succulent to the top and it will be functional *and* decorative.

amazon.com

Promising review: "Love this shelf! I would describe this as a high-end product. It's got a sleek and sophisticated look, and a good weight but still sturdy. The two shelves can serve as an unobtrusive and elegant way to display photos, books, and more! The service was great, delivery was fast, and I received an excellent quality product. The shelf also came with pre-drilled holes and good quality brackets (important as these shelves can be heavy for normal brackets!). The order also came with screws and tools for the pre-drilled holes. There were no problems at all. I definitely would recommend this company and product." —Freebiecritic

Get it from Amazon for $32.99 (available in two colors).

10. A space-saving hanger pack that'll let you neatly store pants or scarves in your overflowing closet.

Promising review: "I really like this. This takes the place of five hangers for pants. My closet is kind of cluttered so this helps me to manage the space I have for my things. Three of these helps me eliminate 15 hangers...that's a lot of room. I will have to get a few more for my husbands pants. The hangers are steel so they won't be bending anything soon which means I won't have to buy hangers for a long while. I definitely recommend buying a few of these...it's worth it." —HoneybeeGet it from Amazon for $8.97+.

11. A sleek coffee drawer to hold all your K-Cup pods (up to 36 of 'em!), creamers, and sugars so everything you need on a groggy morning is within arms reach.

amazon.com

Promising review: "Great for the price. This doesn't feel or look cheap at all. Not only did this free up my drawer, but it made my counter look nicer and more modern with this under my coffee maker. It stores so many pods and gives me quick access to all of them. No more walking around my kitchen and searching through my drawer for the right pod. I put a mat in between the coffee maker and drawer as a protective barrier just in case. This holds 36 pods, which is a lot when the pods are so big as it is. My pods are always ready for me as I separate then before hand when I fill up the drawer. This has made my life easier. I love any product that does that." —Shelly

Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

Keep in mind the hanger does not come with this product, but has a small hole at the top for you to use your own. And it's not limited to just jewelry! One reviewer said she used this to store and color code all of her nail polish, and another stored all of her kids' hair accessories in the pockets. Promising review: "This jewelry organizer is very versatile with the pockets AND the loops for hanging larger and longer necklaces so that they do not have to be scrunched up into one of the pockets. It has helped me to gain dressing table space that was previously cluttered with necklaces and jewelry boxes. It's much quicker to find the jewelry I want to wear and to not have to untangle bracelets and necklaces. Would recommend to anyone who likes jewelry and needs to organize and save space." —jlmGet it from Amazon for $7.99.

17. A bath cabinet that'll fit right over your toilet so you have more storage space and a little extra pizzazz in your bathroom.

Promising review: "I'm giving this product five stars not because it is the best around town, BUT because it's definitely worth what you pay for it. It's a pretty piece and doesn't really look cheap. And believe me! I'm a perfectionist. It takes a good amount of time to put together, but it did not require two people. If you rush this sort of thing you WILL rip, chip, or tear the wood. Work slow and steady for a beautiful outcome!!! If you feel frustrated don't work on it. Once you dress it up a little, it is a beautiful piece for what you pay. Again! Not top notch but serves its purpose and it's cute." —Kaleigh BeachGet it from Amazon or Walmart for $59.15.

Promising review: "I've been using this since last April and it works great! I have a ton of shoes (too many) and this is a great way to get them out of those stupid boxes and off the floor. All my high heels (3"–5") fit great. And on a side note, while it didn't quite hold all my shoes, I ended up buying some cute inexpensive towel racks from Ikea and hanging them on a wall next to my closet, and there I display all my favorite high heels (just a thought for all you ladies looking for ideas...I got it from Pinterest)." —asmith922Get it from Amazon for $18.99 (available in two sizes) or Walmart for $19.95.

Pro tip: One reviewer used this to stack leftover meals in the fridge to save space! Promising review: "I've never been the best at organization, however, my kitchen cabinets were getting way too packed. I decided to try out one of these rack-type things to put my dishes on. The three levels are perfect for my three sizes of plates. These three plate sizes used to take up 3/4th of my two accessible shelves in the cabinet, now all three sizes are stacked nicely in 1/4th of the space!!! Freeing up a lot more room...for more organizational items! Just the room saved made the purchase worth it, however it also looks very nice in my cabinet. Highly highly recommend this item if you are looking to save some space!" —Trisha OGet it from Amazon for $13.97.

Promising review: "I was tired of stacking my frying pans on top of each other and was looking for something to both organize my pans and give me easy access to them. Before this organizer, I would have to unstack several pans in order to get to the middle pan that I needed. Now, I can just reach in and immediately get the frying pan that I need without having to unstack. The quality of this organizer is pretty good." —Linda Roberson

Get it from Amazon for $14.97+ (available in two colors).

26. A stackable drawer and shelf to get super organized. Use it in your cabinet for pantry items, or under your bathroom sink for cleaners and toiletries. Use it for random kitchen items that you have no idea what to do with. Basically, use it if you just really need to eliminate the clutter.

Wallis / amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I can’t stop raving about this drawer set. I recently moved into a new place with woefully little bathroom storage. 🙄 There’s plenty of under sink space, but with a lack of verticality, things get messy pretty quickly (see 'before' picture and don’t judge me). Cue this Amazon purchase. I assembled this baby by myself in under five minutes (no exaggeration), I swept everything out of the cabinet, slid the drawer set in (fits like a dream!), and started organizing. 10 minutes later, everything from the 'before' picture fit...PLUS ENTIRE Costco packages of toilet paper, makeup wipes, AND tampons. Don’t believe me? See the 'after' picture! This is an organizational dream, and easily my best purchase of the year!" —Wallis

Get it from Amazon for $25.87 (available in two colors) or Houzz for $29.59.

27. A rotating makeup holder with adjustable shelves so you can customize your organizer to perfectly fit your products. The removable trays also make it super easy to take apart and clean!

Promising review: "I needed something for foundation and skincare bottles, and this is perfect. The center tier shelves are adjustable in quarters — there are four little shelves that can be placed anywhere along the center of the unit, so you can adjust to accommodate taller bottles. Then the top tier has some slots in the center for lipsticks or tubes, and the perimeter is perfect for nail polish bottles. I easily got 14 foundations, 5 to 6 skin care products (serums and 1 to 2 ounce bottles of sunscreens), an 8 ounce bottle of toner, and maybe 12 nail polishes into this unit with lots of room to spare. Best part: The little slots on the top are pretty generously sized and it's the only place I can get my stick foundations to fit." —A.S.Get it from Amazon $19.99+ (available in three color and size combinations).

Promising review: "Love this sink caddy!!! I've tried multiple ones (all which cost more as well) and have not liked any of them as much as I like this one. It doesn't take up a ton of space in your sink like the ones that stick to the side and has plenty of room for all the brushes, sponges, ect. Couldn't be more happy with this purchase and that I've finally found a worthwhile caddy after trying other products." —Jessica HodsonGet it from Amazon for $9.99.
