    1. A toiletry holder that'll grip to shiny surfaces in your bathroom and give you easy access to your essentials in the shower or above the sink. This is genius — genius, I say!


    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 toothbrushes, 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.

    Promising review: "I loved the simple but chic look of this item. It is perfect for my bedtime activities. I work very long days and like to come home to a relaxing space where everything is readily accessible. This bedside caddy provides solves that need. I can easily store and access my phone, iPad, favorite book/magazine, etc. It was super easy to attach to my bed (I just inserted the flap between the box spring and my mattress). Also, great price for what I received :)." —Theresa

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in eight colors).

    4. AND! A wine glass holder for conveniently storing your finest stemware. You're about to have so much empty room in your cabinets, you won't even know what to do with it all!


    Promising review: "Great product, real wood, and easy to cut to size for your project. I used them to mount some glasses to some burned wood shelves I had installed. They were about two inches too long for the shelves I had, but they cut down easily with a miter saw." —JayS

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $20.99.

    5. A narrow storage cart you can slip into small areas so you have plenty of space for all your must-haves. Bye-bye, tiny bathroom woes!

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "It’s perfect and practical! Very easy to install and it is perfectly slim enough to fit between my toilet and bathtub. It helps keep everything organize and accessible. Bonus if you remove the wheels and hang it on the wall as a over the toilet shelve." —Kitty_kat

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $69.

    6. A hair tool organizer that'll keep your curling iron, hair straightener, and dryer from taking over your counters. It comes with hooks so it can be hung on the cabinet or left out on your vanity as is!

    Uncommon Goods

    Promising review: "We live in a two bedroom apartment in Manhattan, where every square foot counts. This floating bar is versatile and can be used to store other kitchen items. We opted to put a couple of our best liquor bottles on the side facing into the apartment and keep other items behind them for appearances sake." —Gastrinoma

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $118.

    9. A stackable drink vessel rack to FINALLY organize your never-ending collection of water bottles. My wish is that you can now quickly grab a bottle without the rest tumbling out on you. <3


    Promising review: "These are great! I was searching for a way to organize my water bottles and smoothie shaker jugs. I've moved these things all over the place, from a coat closet, corner kitchen cabinet, lazy Susan thing...always a disaster. They were either inconvenient to get at or constantly falling over, causing a mess. This fixes all that. Now I can keep them in kitchen cabinet where they belong and actually see what's what! They come in a different number of bottle holders from single to six across, and are stackable. So no matter where you need to fit, there is likely a solution." —Hollie

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in three set sizes).

    10. An adjustable wood organizer for transforming your cluttered desk into a trendy space you won't mind working at all day.


    Promising review: "I love how customizable it is, especially with it being two separate parts that can just slide towards or away from each other to adjust the space accordingly. I used it for my office desk so that I could make use of the vertical space for all the objects all over my desk, and it looks so much neater thanks to this handy shelf! It's fairly durable: I put my office phone (~10 lbs) on the top shelf, which is resting on the very edge of the bottom piece, and there have been no issues so far!" —Sarvani Gorti

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

    11. A sleek cable organizer that'll keep your cords from ending up in a spaghetti noodle mess, and prevent your charger from tragically slipping behind your desk.

    12. A hanging purse organizer with a clear encasing to make selecting a bag the easiest part of putting together an outfit.


    Promising review: "I love nice purses and I save up to buy good purses of quality. This way of storing my purses is so convenient — there's no stress on the straps, they are visible, kept safe, accessible, and dust-free in one organized place. The hook and seams are strong. I actually have 12 purses stored, and the smaller purses have plenty of room to share a sleeve. Nice product! Glad I purchased it." —Julia H.

    Or! If you're like this clever-as-heck reviewer, you can use it to store sheets and free up some shelving space!

    "These were a perfect solution to my storage needs! I bought these to store sets of bedsheets. Each pocket can more than comfortably hold an entire set of queen sheets (I'm sure they would hold king sets perfectly), and I can easily see the sets. I needed something that would hang since it's a small closet without shelves. These are great!" —crwMSU

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

    13. Annnnd, a clever wallet (or sunglasses!) tray that can snap onto a wire shelf and give your important accessories a better home than the bottom of your purse.


    Promising review: "I love that I can easily see what small clutches and wallets I own. It makes it easier and saves a few minutes of my time when I want to switch out or change up my wallet/clutch. It's durable, easy to install, and I recommend it." —Gem Nicole

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in two styles).

    14. Super strong magnetic strips designed to hang beer bottles and keep them off your shelf so there is more room in your fridge. I mean, this is the kind of six pack I'm striving for in 2019.


    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.

    15. A canvas wall organizer featuring a variety of compartment sizes that'll offer up a unique storage solution for a multitude of things. Think: garden tools, kitchenware, crafting supplies, and more.

    Curiographer / Etsy

    Get it from Curiographer on Etsy for $24.95+ (available in 15 style and size combinations).

    17. Or for a more practical storage option, a double-sided hanging organizer with 32 pockets and 18 loop closures so you always know where every piece you own is.

    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." —jlm

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in two colors).

    18. A six-piece bin set — aka your foolproof way to keep track of everything in your more moldy leftovers hiding in the back, stinking up the place.


    Promising review: "Very happy with these organizers. They are very sturdy and help keep my refrigerator organized. It's so much easier to find things. Things don't get lost in the back of the fridge. If something spills, it is easy to remove just that container and clean it than to clean the entire shelf. My refrigerator just looks better when the door is opened with these handy organizers. Should have purchased them sooner!" —Thoreauback

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99.

    19. A magnetic rack that simply sticks to the side of your fridge and provides bonus storage space for your most-used goods.


    Promising review: "Small but strong. It's a perfect addition for a small (usually messy) kitchen. Now I always know where the paper towels are. The top shelf is a great place to keep often-used items (honey, Sriracha sauce, garlic powder, etc.), and the hooks at the bottom work well for small pot holders. The magnet holds well — I have not had any issues with the rack sliding down the side of my fridge. I think this is a great product." —C. A. Fuchs

    Get the larger one (left) from Amazon for $37.98 and the smaller one (right) for $17.99.

    20. A cami hanger that'll free up so much rod space, you may just have to go shopping to fill up the rest of your closet. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


    Promising review: "I had 37 plastic hangers holding up 37 tank tops; this took up one half of my closet. I purchased two sets of these hangers and I fit all 37 tank tops on them. This now takes up about six inches in my closet. I went from four feet to six inches. All of my tank tops are still easily accessible too, which was one of my concerns. This is my best Amazon purchase to date." —jay money

    Get a three-piece set from Amazon for 12.99+ (available in three colors and a legging option).

    21. And! An adjustable hanging rod to instantly double the room in your closet because what do we love? Clothes! And what do we want? MORE CLOTHES. / Amazon

    Promising review: "I have trouble reaching up because both of my shoulder joints had to be replaced and the rotator cuffs are damaged. Lifting heavier items such as coats and jackets are specially challenging. So I am using these extensions not to double my hanging space but rather to lower clothing to a reachable height for me." —Margrit Aeschbach

    Get it from Amazon for $12.87.

    22. A set of adorable and highly useful expandable file folders so you can take that bin full of important papers down to a manageable size — just in time for tax day. *Insert unexcited woo, here.*


    Read our full write-up of these folders.

    Get them from Amazon for $7.99 (available in eight colors).

    23. A mid-mod wall hook you won't mind hanging up in your entryway for the world to see. Seriously, this thing is so sleek *and* functional and I want one for every room.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $49.

    24. A tea stand organizer (for up to 100 bags!) that'll rid your pantry from alllll those half-empty boxes.


    Promising review: "Do I really need a tea bag organizer? That's what I was thinking when I ordered this and when I took it out of the box... and when I filled the first little bag holder. But as the pile of empty boxes grew larger, I knew the answer was yes, I do need a tea bag organizer. I was using a whole shelf and a half of jumbled tea boxes which I had to sift through to look for a specific tea. In the end, I think this held about eight or nine boxes of tea bags (I crammed some of them). I am so happy that I got this!" —Sarah C.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    25. A boot organizing system with handy clips for keeping your larger shoes from flopping over and losing their shape. Plus it keeps them off of the floor and gives you even *more* room for smaller pairs underneath.

    Amazon /

    Promising review: "I love this thing! This thing is really sturdy and is just awesome. I've got five pairs of boots on it now and I love the fact that they are hanging off the ground. I have wood floors that collect a lot of dust and so keeping them up and off the ground keeps the lint from getting all over them. I also love the fact that they keep their shape in this position. The accompanying hangers are really heavy duty and durable. I was skeptical that they may leave marks on my boots but they have a little seal that protects the boot from the metal. No marks at all, while supplying a really tight hold on even heavier boots. This could fit quite a few pairs of boots as the design staggers them for maximum use of space — what an awesome design! With fall/winter coming up, you'll be pulling your boots on. This rack will keep them beautiful and save space in your closet. Trust me, you will love it!" —Loni Simmons

    Get it from Amazon for $44.95 (available in eight styles).

    26. Clear plastic bins to organize the heap of beauty products in your vanity drawer — or really ANY junk drawer — so you can quickly find what you need on early mornings.


    Promising review: "Great product! I bought these to put in my nightstand drawer to store small things, as the drawer is very deep. I've got Chapstick, hand lotions, a small flashlight, and other bedside items in them so they're not just rolling around the drawer. I just bought some more for my bathroom vanity. They fit together nicely but also lift right out of each other. The plastic is sturdy, and they came individually wrapped to keep them from scratching." —Sparkyj

    Get a six-piece from Amazon for $14.99.

    27. A hexagon shelf wall organizer you can use for your ever-growing essential oil collection — or for skincare products and nail polish. Really the options are endless!

    Tucker Design Co. / Etsy

    Get it from Tucker Design Co. on Etsy for $85+ (available in seven colors).

    28. A cup holder caddy ready to save your car from the all-too-common mess of cell phones, pens, chapstick, glasses, change, drinks, and I can keep going...


    Promising review: "This turned my Toyota Echo from a huge ongoing mess party into a streamlined system of organization! After installing, I can now say I do have a place for everything in my car. No more throwing my iPod somewhere random while it's playing music, it goes right in the front compartment. No more trying to find place for all my writing utensils, they fit nicely in the cupholder part. Yes, I even have a place for a drink if I so want to!" —Tessa

    Get it from on Amazon for $5.99+ (available in two styles).

    29. A freakin' ~hootiful~ owl hamper because why shouldn't hampers be as cute as this? Maybe our dirty clothes will end up in this, instead of all over our floor.


    Get it on sale from PBteen for $63 (originally $79).

    30. A rubber key organizer that'll save space, keep your belongings from getting scratched, stop the annoying jingling, help you find the one key you actually need — and holy moly, this is a tiny but mighty invention if I do say so myself!

    Promising review: "I had ben frantically looking for something to keep my keys from jingling when I come home late, poking in my pockets, and scratching at my husbands photo. I was happy to pay the $25 since it was exactly what I wanted. It was EXACTLY what I had expected and I love it so much." —Faith Woods

    Get it from Amazon for $18+ (available in seven colors).

    31. A set of air-tight containers so you can trade in messy cereal boxes and chip bags for some A-grade organization. I mean, this is the Instagram-level storage that gets my blood pumping!!!,

    Promising review: "Love everything about these! Not only do they look great and help me not stress me out every time I open the cabinet, they work very well. The air lock seal is perfect. Plus the tall ones are great for a box of cereal and cute enough to leave out on the counter for the kids! Hoping they last over time, but right now I feel these are worth the investment. Will buy more soon!" —Michelle G.

    Get it from Amazon for $34.97+ (available in three different sets).

    32. And for your counters, a set of ceramic canisters with teensy spoons cute enough to leave out. These'll give you fast access to your sugar and coffee, which we all know is VERY important on sluggish mornings.


    Promising review: "There's nothing I do not like about this product. I redid my kitchen with vintage '50s turquoise and this canister set was perfect for what I wanted. The convenience of having spoons attached to the side is a nice added touch, along with the silicone seal and the old time clasp which seals in the flavor for my coffee and teas." —Della J. Bryant

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in four colors).

    33. A three-tier wrap organizer because no one thinks there's a great way to organize their mountain of aluminum foil, baggy boxes, and plastic wrap — but this lil' guy proves otherwise.


    Get it from Walmart for $12.99.

    34. And lastly, an earring and ring organizer that'll neatly display everything that you own so you can quit wasting time trying to find that *one* pair.

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in four styles).
