    Promising review: "Perfect way to organize socks and make it fun to open the drawer and be like 'what socks am I gonna wear today?' And all the colors and patterns beam back at you. If you have boring socks then I would say screw it because you are boring." β€”Esq

    It works with men's, women's, and kid's shoes β€” heels and flats!

    Promising review: "I will spare you the horrific 'before' picture of the complete nightmare that was my closet floor. Just imagine a dusty mess with shoes thrown all over each other in a sad attempt at giving some appearance of order, and you will have a good idea of why buying this shoe organizer was one of the best ideas I've had this year. The floor now looks so neat and tidy I can't believe my eyes every time I open my closet doors." β€”Veronica, just an average reader, you know?

    3. A 50-pack of super-slim velvet hangers that'll streamline your closet, allowing you to hang way more tops, blazers, and dresses (oh so many dresses).

    Because of the velvet coating, spaghetti straps and slippery fabrics won't keep falling off. And unlike similar options, reviewers promise the flocking does *not* come off of these and all over your clothes.

    Promising review: "These hangers do all the work for me. I was finally inspired to rid myself of flimsy tacky dry cleaner hangers and bulky plastic ones β€” I’d have to size up my clothes in order to determine which ones wouldn’t slide off the plastic. With these hangers, everything works, and the velvet is like an easy to use magnet for my clothes. Nothing slips. The space-saving design makes a surprising difference. I share a small master closet and thanks to these hangers my side is roomy and organized now." β€”E. Marshall

    4. Clear acrylic shelf dividers for help keeping that teetering stack of sweaters upright β€” all while blending into your closet stylishly.

    Promising review: "Work great for me to create space for sweaters. I can get about five sweaters stacked up between shelves. Brought much-needed organization to my closet!" β€”Sally 300

    They're made from a mold-proof fabric, too, so that's cool.

    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 $13 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!" β€”Elizabeth L. BLackwell

    Get the set of four from Amazon for $14.87 (available in three colors).

    6. A hanger stacker, because nothing is more infuriating than trying to put clothes away and 1. not knowing where you put the hangers or 2. trying to untangle them on your closet floor.

    Stack hangers on it as you wear clothes, then carry it over to the laundry room when everything is cleaned for easy putting-away.

    Promising review: "I grew tired of throwing my empty hangers into a pile in my closet. They would get tangled up and frustrated the heck out of me every time I had to put clothes away. This hanger stacker seemed like an easy solution and boy was I right. It assembled quickly (two screws and an Allen wrench) and although not the sturdiest thing I own, it is good enough for my use." β€”Bubbles456

    Get it from Amazon for $11.79.

    7. A set of ~as-seen-on-TV~ Wonder Hangers that'll help prevent those pesky snags and wrinkles caused by overcrowded closets.,

    Just hang five hangers along the bottom, then release one of the hooks hanging from your closet rod. Look how compact it gets!

    Promising review: "I've been struggling for years for find the best way to maximize my closet space, until now! I have been pleasantly surprised and impressed! I find these hangers easy to use (they come pre-assembled. No fighting to get piece to fit just right, etc). It's easy to see exactly what items are on the hanger too which is a big plus! I've already placed an order for two additional sets. I'd definitely recommend this product to someone who fights to utilize every inch of closet space they've got in their home or apartment!" β€”Emily

    8. A set of Space Saver vacuum bags to squeeeeeze your out-of-season clothes and blankets into their most compact version.

    And if the photos above aren't enough, check out these photos to see two massive stacks of tees sealed into a Space Saver the width of a SODA CAN!

    Promising review: "THESE ARE LIFE CHANGING. The package came quickly to my door with five storage bags. They even give you a hand pump to use in case you're taking the bags camping or just don't have a vacuum handy. I tested the pump to see how well it works, perfect! I have uploaded photos of my hall closet before and after using the storage bags (pictured above). And HOLY COW I have half my closet back! I would have more room but I left out a few blankets we regularly use. I used three bags to store ALL THE items including three large pillows and several thick blankets and comforters. I will most definitely be buying more, these are fantastic!!!" β€”Knastay

    Get a set of six jumbo bags from Amazon for $29.99 (also available in small, medium, and large).

    I finally gave in and bought some of these and YOU GUYS!!!! I'm so happy I did (I have way too many sweaters). Check out my review of the space saving bags for more deets!

    9. A closet rod you can hang from your existing one so you can make the very most out of your space (and help your little'un reach their favorite outfits without your help).,

    Gotta maximize that vertical space, friends.

    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!!" β€”CCBunE

    Get it from Amazon for $11.52.

    10. A copy of Marie Kondo's The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up to inspire you to finally get rid of all the things that don't bring you joy (and that you don't actually *wear*), so you can make room for new finds.

    That's right, someone did ^this^ after reading this book!

    Promising review: "Use caution when reading this book! Literally 10 years I have been meaning to clean this stuff out and only one hour of reading motivated me to take action. I cannot recommend this book highly enough! I don't think most people realize what an emotional drain having junk all over has on themselves. It really is amazing at how much easier I can now breathe as this stuff goes away bit by bit. I am eternally grateful for finding this book." β€”Kent Bliven

    Get it from Amazon for $9.69.

    11. A laundry board for super-precise folding so your band and college tees (how do you have so many?) will stay neatly stacked in a gorgeous column.,

    Promising review: "I love this thing! I have been looking at shirt folders for a while, but there were so many comments about the products being flimsy and breaking that I never bought one... until now. I finally bought this one and I love it. My dresser drawers and closet shelves have never been so tidy before. And it's so much easier to find what I'm looking for. After the final flip of the folder, I fold my shirts/etc. up one more time so everything is the same size and the perfect size to place in the drawer sideways so there is no stacking, everything in the drawer is visible and easy to find." β€”Sunluvr

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99 (available in five colors).

    12. A 23-loop scarf organizer, because cold weather is right around the corner, and your favorite cozy wraps are 100% a wrinkled mess right now.

    This works great for kids' leggings too.

    Promising review: "This thing is amazing. I was skeptical about buying because all the other reviews had pictures with lighter summery/spring scarves but my collection is mostly winter wear. I wasn’t sure it would hold all my large blanket scarves but it does. My grandmother saw it and asked me to order one for her! This was the perfect solution to my organization problem." β€”Nikolette

    Get it from Amazon for $9.87.

    13. A three-tier shoe rack that'll hold up to 15 pairs of heels and keep them scuff-free and visible so you actually remember to wear them.

    Promising review: "We got these as an addition to our new closet. Our shoes were in rows on our closet floor since we moved in and boy did it make a HUGE difference just to stack them and see all the floor space that magically appeared! My husband usually puts together most things we get in, but these were a breeze for me to put together. Would definitely buy again and recommend." β€”Texas H.

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99 (also available in black).

    14. A set of boot-shaping inserts so your favorite pairs'll stand tall rather than sag over (which can lead to creasing, cracking, and signs of wear). Nancy Sinatra would approve.

    But that's not all. These are customizable to three heights (ankle, calf, and knee) and fit both men's and women's size boots. Aaaaaand they have loops at the top so you can hang your boots to store without damaging them.

    Promising review: "Dude. Buy these. If you have boots, which of course you do: you're a fashion-forward person who enjoys rocking a pair of sexy tall boots in the fall, right? Then you need these things. They do what they say they do: they keep your boots' shapes when you're not wearing them. Friggin' sweet. The best part is the price. You really can't beat it. I have bought a gajillion of these. All my boots are full and I have plenty leftover for my next DSW shopping spree. Seriously, stop reading this and just buy a few sets. You'll be totally satisfied." β€”Kryssi Bee

    Get two pairs from Amazon for $8.62 (also available in four pairs for $13.99).

    15. A set of five-rung pants hangers to stow away alllllllllll your jeans and leggings once and for all. We're preventing clothes from stacking up on The Chair, one slightly weird-looking hanger at a time.

    And because the hangers are open-ended, you can just slide pants on sideways rather than feeding them through like traditional hangers. Easy!

    Promising review: "Lightweight, space-saving, and very helpful! Since I don’t have a big closet, I used to fold my pants in the drawer, but now I can use the hanger to hold the pants in the closet without any wrinkles. Yeah!!!" β€”vivianocean

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $17.55.

    16. A 30-section hanging organizer to free up your floor space β€” all your sneakers, ballet, flats, and loafers need a forever home where they won't get dusty (or make you trip).

    If you can't sacrifice the closet space, you can also hang this over a door if you add a rod, according to some reviewers!

    Promising review: "This thing is very sturdy, more than others I have had. As a shoe addict, I have had my trials with other organizers. Most break after too much time or the canvas just sags and collects dirt. Not this one! The top hanger is metal and very sturdy and each shoe compartment has a strong bottom board = no sagging! There are 30 compartments, which means it holds about 30 pairs of shoes for women. I am able to fit three pairs of flat sandals in some compartments but some wedges/heels requires a slot for each shoe because of their height. So it probably averages to holding 30." β€”Elizabeth

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99.

    17. Or if you really want a closet overhaul, a Rubbermaid custom closet set with everything you need to neatly store your favorite duds once and for all β€” we're talking expandable shelves, telescoping rods and *all* the hanging hardware. All for under $100.

    It comes in two sizes (3-6 foot and 4-8 foot) depending on the size closet you have. The smaller version will equip you with 18 FEET of shelving space.

    Promising review: "This is the BEST closet system. Finally, after 10 years of cramming two peoples stuff in a 1950's California bungalow closet, We did something about it. Both my husband and I were impressed with the sturdiness and good design of the system. We used it for a five-foot wide closet, but mounted almost floor to ceiling to maximize. Can't believe how much of a difference it makes in the space we have. It was easy enough to assemble and install. I think it took about three hours or so, then I had the fun job of putting everything back in. I looked at ikea and Elfa systems. This was a much better value and we are thrilled! We will probably do some other bedrooms next." β€”K. Chi

    Get it from Amazon for $95.67+ (available in two sizes, standard and deluxe).

    These products are the closest you'll get to having Tan France give you a closet makeover, tbh.
