    31 Storage Products For Anyone With Zero Drawer, Cabinet, Or Closet Space

    Until we can Mary Poppins bag–ify our closets, at least we have Wonder Hangers.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A durable honeycomb drawer insert to corral your socks, scarves, ties, undies, etc. in style — so you can actually see which is which when getting dressed in the morning. A more organized drawer = a drawer that can hold more.

    A review image of the insert with underwear folded up in each honeycomb

    The pieces just *snap* together for easy assembly, and the design expands to fit whatever size drawer you have.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    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." —Esq

    2. A spice *drawer* organizer so you can turn the messiest part of the kitchen into a clear, easy-to-read assortment of jars and labels. You'll save cabinet space AND never accidentally add cumin where you meant to add coriander again.


    Spice racks only *wish* they could. These drawer liners are made of a soft foam to keep your jars in the right position (label up!) so you can quickly grab what you need. And you can cut 'em to fit your drawers!

    Get a 10-foot roll from Amazon for $15.99.

    Promising review: "This is one of my favorite things I've ever purchased from Amazon! I think this will be my go-to gift for all of my friends who love cooking as much as I do! Freeing up cabinet space and having something that can so easily be rinsed off in the sink makes this a for-sure buy!" —momonono

    3. A set of Shoe Slotz for any Carrie Bradshaw with way too many pairs of pumps to fit into an NYC-sized closet. Just put one shoe on the shelf, top with a ~Shoe Slot~, and stack the other shoe on top. You just DOUBLED your storage space.

    A before/after of shoes lined up on shelves in pairs, and then the same shelves, but only half the space is taken up by shoes, since they're using the white shoe slotz to stack one shoe on the other

    It works with men's, women's, and kid's shoes — heels and flats!

    Get a set of 10 from Amazon for $26.99 (also available in packs of two and four).

    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." —Veronica, just an average reader, you know?

    4. A minimalist silverware tray that'll help you save drawer space, make emptying the dishwasher easier and keep the cutlery for becoming ~clutter-ly~.

    The organizer in grey with silverware organized at an angle inside

    It also comes in a version just for knives and one for kitchen utensils and gadgets.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.97 (available in two colors).

    Promising review: "I thought this would be handy, and help with space management in a small apartment. It turned out to be absolutely perfect. It keeps the silverware clean, and stores a lot in a very small space. I love it. I got two, because I inherited my grandmothers silverware, so there are two types of forks and two types of spoons, and I wanted things separate and organized. Two organizers fit side-by-side in a standard apartment drawer. After getting these, I picked up the knife organizer, and it’s just as handy and useful." —Jerimi

    5. Shelf dividers to keep your teetering tower of sweaters from toppling when you're rushing in the morning. No one likes a jumper jumble.

    The white wire dividers separating button-ups and sweaters

    No installation — just sliiiiiide them right on your shelves (they fit any shelves up to an inch thick).

    Get a set of eight from Amazon for $36.99 (also available in a set of four).

    Promising review: "Cannot believe I lived without these. These are seriously amazing! I cannot believe I waited so long to buy these and get my closet in order. Great price and came with eight in the package! Slipped on my shelves easily without any damage. They hold my clothes in place and give me so much more room!" —Cherise Kachelmuss

    6. 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).

    Reviewer's closet with tons and tons of the velvet hangers fitting in to a closet

    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.

    Get a set of 50 from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in four colors).

    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 — 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." —E. Marshall

    7. A set of surprisingly inexpensive drawer organizers so you can keep your bras, socks, scarves, and well.... ~drawers~ in order. No more digging through and messing everything up when you're already running late.

    A reviewer's before/after of a messy drawer, and the same drawer neatly organized in these bins

    They're made from a mold-proof fabric, too, so that's cool. You get four bins: a six-cell (for scarves, hankies, and ties), an eight-cell (great for undies), a seven-cell (designed for bras), and a 24-cell (great for socks)

    Get the set of four from Amazon for $14.97 (available in six colors).

    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!" —Elizabeth L. Blackwell

    8. A set of ~as-seen-on-TV~ Wonder Hangers that'll help prevent those pesky snags and wrinkles caused by overcrowded closets. Time for a shopping spree, because you suddenly have more room!

    Image showing how the wonder hangers work (explained below) with text that it works with any type of hanger

    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!" —Emily

    Get a pack of 24 from Amazon for $29.99 (available in white and grey).

    9. A pretty colorblock basket so you can keep your throw blankets tucked neatly inside for easy access — *and* free up space in your linen closet or dresser.

    The burgundy, beige, pink, and dark blue basket with lid

    Get it from Jungalow for $155.

    Jungalow is a Black woman-owned business (founded by Justina Blakeney, and originally a design blog), with products sourced from all over the world — and for every order, they'll plant *two trees*!

    10. 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! I bought these last summer to squish down my overwhelming collection of sweaters, and they have CHANGED my closet GAME.

    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!!!" —Knastay

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in six sizes).

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

    The doubling rod hanging from the top built-in closet rod on rubber-tipped hooks

    Gotta maximize that vertical space, friends.

    Promising review: "Sturdy and lightweight, 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!!" —CCBunE

    Get it from Amazon for $10.01.

    12. A bed frame with built-in storage space that'll corral and reduce the extra stuff in your closet (hello, out-of-season clothes and bedding!) so sweaters can be out of sight, out of mind until the cold weather comes back.

    The bed, with the mattress lifted and blankets, storage bins with clothing showing in the storage space

    This stylish upholstered one has a ~hydraulic mechanism~ that lifts the mattress up *for you* so you can access the generous storage space beneath.

    Get it from Amazon for $394.99+ (available in sizes full–queen and four colors and fabrics).

    Promising review: "This bed is an excellent value. I'm pretty handy so I would say it was fairly easy to put together but took around two hours total assembly (I think unpacking every individual piece took up a lot of time too). The hydraulic function works perfectly and the bed feels solid. Storage space is great and we fit a ton of stuff underneath." —Tim Nguyen

    Check out one of my BuzzFeed Shopping colleague's review of this storage bed (#6 in the post) to learn more about why she loooves the extra space in this bed!

    13. An over-the-door plastic bag organizer to restrain your collecting habits, corral your bags, and make it easy to grab one to use without disturbing the whole assortment. Just reach in the hole!

    The black metal organizer with an oval-shaped opening in the middle so you can grab a bag

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in seven finishes).

    Promising review: "I’m really happy with my kitchen organizer. It is out of sight, holds a lot of plastic bags and now, and I no longer have a huge bag full of plastic bags in my pantry. Cleared up a lot of space. Awesome!" —Monica

    14. A three-tier shoe rack that'll hold up to 15 pairs of heels, keep them scuff-free and visible (and OFF THE FLOOR!) so you actually remember to wear them.

    The organizer with 15 pairs of shoes fitting comfortably

    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." —Texas H.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

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

    A reviewer's before/after of several pairs of boots, with the shafts messily folded over each other before, and the same boots standing tall and neat with the inserts in them

    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." —Kryssi Bee

    Get two pairs from Amazon for $9.03 (also available in four pairs for $13.99).

    16. A set of handy-dandy under-shelf baskets you can use in closets! pantries! cabinets! or even the fridge! to maximize all your space. Stacking things endlessly will *not* end well — these will help.


    Just sliiiiide it on your shelf — that's how easy these are to "install."

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $29.99.

    Promising review: "These are excellent quality, sturdy and well made. I appreciate that when slid in place, the front of the basket lines up flush with the edge of the shelf (some lesser brands protrude a bit beyond the shelf, making it impossible to close the cupboard properly). Look no further — these are the best deal you'll find." —peggydf

    17. A set of five-rung pants hangers to stow away alllllllllll your jeans and leggings — without hogging up your whole hanging rod. We're preventing clothes from stacking up on The Chair, one slightly weird-looking hanger at a time.

    Three of the hangers with pants, with text pointing out the non-slip coating on the middle of the hangers

    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!!!" —vivianocean

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $14.95 (also available in white).

    18. A hanging glassware rack that'll add precious storage space under your cabinet *and* add a cool bar-like vibe to your kitchen. Aaaaand make it even easier to pour yourself a quick glass of the good stuff after a long day.

    The black metal rack hanging under a cabinet, with six wine glasses hanging upside-down

    One reviewer even attached this to an old, built-in desk for a cool DIY wine bar!

    Get it from Amazon for $17.87+ (also available in a two-pack and a version you *don't* have to screw into your existing cabinet).

    Promising review: "Well, here's the deal...The product arrived on time and in good condition. I like simple and this is about as simple as it gets. Had a cabinet at the cabin above an ice maker that had some wasted space underneath and too many glasses inside. This double pack wine rack for a modest price solved the problem. It comes with all the hardware, eight screws...line up the racks, mark your pilot holes and screw in place...easy and perfect. My racks are black and barely visible, yet stylish and functional. Doubled the space in my cabinet. Home run...and simple! There you have it." —Chuck

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

    Review image of the 30-slot organizer holding shoes in their closet

    Reviewers use it for scarves and sweaters, too!

    Get it from Amazon for $23.49.

    Promising review: "Besides being able to hang this from a conventional closet rod, one can hang them from a wire shelving rod. It actually works better, because you can hang from the midpoint of the shelf, conserving hang space. Unit is just sturdy enough — but still breathable cloth (good in FL) and flexible to be very practical. LOVE having shoes off the floor in the closet!" —Anon in FL

    20. A six-piece cabinet system for helping you make the most out of your space for all of your novelty mugs and giant pasta bowls — and your regular plates, too.

    The set staged in a cabinet

    It comes with (deep breath): a wrap rack, two-shelf spice rack, three cabinet shelves, and a lid/plate rack.

    Get a six-piece set from Amazon for $31.75.

    Promising review: "I love how organized my shelf is now! It fits in perfectly and is very sturdy. Getting six pieces for less than $5 each is amazing. I put pans and lids, plates, spices, and saran wraps, and I used one of the racks for organizing my coffee stuff." —Barbara

    21. An over-the-cabinet storage system that'll finally neaten up your three curling irons, plus your straightener and blow dryer. Bonus? No more tripping over random cords on your way to pee.

    The organizer hanging over a vanity door, holding two curling irons and a blow dryer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in six colors).

    Promising review: "This product did exactly what I needed it to. Before all my items were in a drawer and the cords were a pain, but with this metal basket it minimized clutter, kept things organized and separate, and it also looks nice. It fits two of my blow-dryers, a flat iron, and curling wand. The bars are adjustable as well (just use the twisties it came with to secure them in place, but the basket fit perfectly to my cabinet). Worth the buy. :)" —Alyssa Jewell

    22. A pretty acrylic makeup organizer for displaying your favorite palettes, nail polishes, and more right on your vanity, rather than hogging up bathroom drawers. Live your best beauty YouTuber life.

    The organizer on a counter holding lipsticks, brushes, lashes, and other makeup

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99 (available in nine colors, and two configurations: three large drawers and four small drawers or four large drawers and two small drawers).

    Promising review: "I love this makeup organizer! I could not believe how inexpensive it was, because it is very well made! I wanted to wait a while before reviewing it to see how it held up. It's been almost two months and I have not had one problem with it! And, this is the longest my makeup has stayed organized. I highly recommend. I purchased two! One with four small drawers and three large drawers. and one with two small drawers and four large drawers. Both have the same organizer on top. The color is awesome! Of course, I love pink —especially this soft pink. If you are looking for a makeup organizer this is the one!" —Shelly

    23. A storage lid organizer you'll wish you bought years and years (and years) ago. It'll end the nightmare of trying to figure out which lid belongs to which container (or losing a lid...sigh) and put a stop to the cascade of containers that rains on your head when trying to find the right size. Virgos, rejoice!

    The organizer in a drawer holding six sizes of container lids

    The dividers are adjustable so you can customize your set depending on what size containers you have!

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

    Promising review: "I love, love, love this storage container. Sounds silly, but it changed my life. No longer do I have storage container Jenga! No more stuff falling out of the cabinet every time I open the cupboard. Now I can stack my lids in the organizer and my storage containers fit nicely on the shelf, and I have a lot of storage containers. I would definitely buy this again and again. Great product" —Laura H.

    24. A rainbow wall file folder so you can organize all those pesky papers — OUT of your already-crowded desk — and add a touch of color to your drab office. Color-coding FTW!

    The hanging folder on a wall behind a desk

    It's also available in a greyscale version for those who prefer more ~muted~ colors. You can easily take if off the wall and close it with the attached elastic cords for on-the-go use, too!

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    Promising review: "This hanging folder set is EXACTLY what I've been needing. I ripped the calendar off the wall and put it right up the moment I got it. It immediately went to good use and cleared up my cluttered desk full of various paperwork. Love the color-coded folders. Although I was worried about how flimsy it might be, it seems sturdy and well made." —Karen

    25. A tufted storage ottoman for a chicly secretive place to store extra blankets, books, or even shoes (idk about you, but I'm always looking for shoe storage), while blending in with your decor.

    The grey ottoman with nailhead trim around the bottom

    Because after a hard day of organizing, you deserve to put your feet up!

    Get it from Amazon for $121.99+ (available in five colors).

    Promising review: "Exactly as described and color accurate to picture. I absolutely love my storage bench! Already have gotten lots of compliments on it. Bench comes assembled, all you have to do is screw the legs into the bench. No tools required. Super easy, and SUPER satisfied with my order. LOVE this bench!!" —GabyG

    26. A wall-mounted rack to keep your broom, Swiffer, and mop out of the dust before they can even sweep it up. And now you can actually (::sheds tear::) walk into your broom closet without tripping over a million handles.

    Review image of the organizer holding five brooms and sweepers

    Freed up floor space = more room for storage bins!!!!!

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    Promising review: "I have a small apartment, and the broom closet was always a mess, with the brooms hitting me in the face whenever I took the trash out. This saved me so much stress! The slots have little rollers and they move to fit just about any size mop or broom. There are also little hooks that can drop down if you want to hold towels or the dust pan, which is what I use it for. This is a must-have organizational tool!" —Jacqui Nibbelin

    27. An organizing rack for neatly storing all your pans, platters, or baking sheets, because it shouldn't take you 20 minutes to find the right pan when a craving for grilled cheese strikes.


    Stack 'em vertically or horizontally — which ever makes the most sense to make the most out of your space!

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99.

    Promising review: "I have limited storage space in my kitchen so I've been stacking my skillets atop one another. Choosing one to use usually meant shifting the stack. Not any more. This holds my skillets, which includes a cast-iron. They slide in and out easily. There are screws included to anchor it down if so desired. Well-made and sturdy. I recommend it." —The Godfather

    28. Or if that won't do the trick, a two-layer pull out organizer to keep all your pots and pans — AND lids — easier to access than ever before.

    The metal organizer with nine pots/pans on the bottom and lids on top

    It comes with all the hardware you need to mount it, too.

    Get it from Amazon for $150.37 (also available in a half size for smaller cabinets).

    Promising review: "To whoever invented these — THANK YOU! This is the most helpful, ingenious product I've ever purchased. I bought two 12" pull-outs (the smaller size) for three sets of pots, pans and fry pans... all with lids. For the first time ever I can effortlessly reach ALL my lids and cookware. And nothing even bangs into other stuff creating scratches. I LOVE THESE!!! Don't know how I cooked all these decades without such easy access. Everything about the design is truly brilliant. They hold a lot of weight. Metal is quality, sturdy. You can even pull top and bottom out together with no problem because they're so secure and balanced. And the adjustable vertical shelves let me customize sizes for every item. Once I got both installed and moved into them, I actually called all my friends and neighbors to come see them. Yea — I couldn't contain myself. As a cook, best purchase I've made in a long, long time." —Sapphire

    29. A set of four dust-free sectioned trays that'll encourage you to actually wear and rotate your jewelry for a change once you have it PROPERLY stowed away (read: not in a tangled ball o' chains shoved in some drawer).

    The set of four, with small and large square and long rectangular slots for different jewelry

    Get it from Amazon for $39.90 (you can also buy the individual trays to meet your needs).

    Promising review: "I love these stackable jewelry trays. They take up less space on the dresser, but organize the jewelry remarkably well. When stacked and the top one covered, your jewelry can remain dust free. There are more than enough holders, which are lined with a non-abrasive cloth. Well made and great for organizing." —Alot2do

    30. An adorable burlap basket to keep your dog's toys in so they're not scattered all over your living room — or stinking up a cabinet.

    Basket with handles printed with a pawprint and the text "my toys paws off"
    Minnie and Maude

    Get it from Minnie and Maude on Etsy for $24.99.

    Minnie and Maude is an Ohio-based Etsy shop that was founded in 2007.

    31. A bamboo monitor riser chock-full of storage spaces to turn your cubicle or home office into a paradise of focus and productivity. Aka you won't be rifling through a filing cabinet of junk looking for a Post-it to jot down that Important Email Address.

    The riser holding a monitor, with space for books underneath, and supplies in spots on top

    This bb has spaces for your phone, coffee cup, office supplies, and more.

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

    Promising review: "This monitor stand is AWESOME! I'm a person who likes lots of places to store things. Pockets, organizers, drawers, I have way too much crap, and way too many places to store it all. But this stand keeps my actual desktop really well organized. I got a few desk items on-hand so that everything else can go in the drawer organizer I have, and my desk can be clean. It blends well with my natural-wood/weathered-oak desk. It also puts my monitor at a great height. I'm actually looking at the screen instead of up or down." —Victoria Horger

    Me, going to shop immediately once I find a single empty space in my closet:
