    1. A powder polish for giving your kitchenware a well deserved scrub after you watch Beauty and the Beast with your kid and start feeling guilty about the condition of your own flatware friends.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "As you can see in the photo, it’s safe to say this stuff works. I left it on for a little while and when I came back, this was the result of less than two minutes of scrubbing (pictured above)!" —Donette

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $14.13.

    2. A cotton swab holder that must have been plucked straight from the Wizarding World, considering how well it'll clean up counter space when floss picks, cotton swabs, and toothpicks abound.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "It’s definitely cute and a great product. It works well. Some cotton buds are too long for it, but that’s not usually a problem. I love the way it looks on my counter rather than a bulky box." —Dee Morales

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    3. A car insurance and registration holder to keep everything you need in one spiffy space, because digging through your trash-filled glove compartment is sure to be even more stressful than getting pulled over in the first place.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I was searching for a flat holder that was long enough to hold my state’s registration form without having to fold it. This fit the requirements. I like the sturdy feel of it – it feels long-lasting. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it seems to have light magnetic closures that keep it together but aren't so strong as to make it difficult to open." —Rachel Bailey

    Get it from Amazon for $9.75+ (available in two colors).

    4. A power cord box – it's gonna turn the rat king cord collection you've got living under your desk into a neat and (c)orderly space.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is such a simple idea, yet so useful. I really hate seeing tangled cords and having a mess in my workspace. This was a solid purchase, for sure. I like that the box is large enough to easily fit a surge protector in there but also has room to store some cord slack as well. It comes with several Velcro cord wraps that work very well up keep the excess cable length cleanly out of the way, as well as some nylon-like tubing that you could also use if you're running your cords at further distances." —N. Lee

    Get it from Amazon for $28.45 (available in two colors).

    5. A wine stain remover so you can spill the tea (when your "tea" is red wine) and bippity, boppety, boop that stain right off your best ball gown!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I fell in love with this product some 15 years ago, and I am so very happy that it's still available in the same wonderful formula as ever. It has a fantastic citrus scent and takes care of any stain (not just wine) so fast and so efficiently, it's become a party trick. LOL. I have seriously poured red wine over a white comforter to demonstrate how great it is to a friend once. It is a miracle in a bottle! We use it for all sorts of cleaning on materials around the house, and one bottle has lasted us years! This is definitely a product every home should have." —Melanie Nolen

    Get it from Amazon for $9.23.

    6. A shirt folder that'll give you perfectly crisp and beautifully folded shirts that'll bring a tear to your type-A father's eye the next time he FaceTimes.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    It's official; you've finally become your father.

    Promising review: "My first reaction was 'Why did I buy this?' when I opened the box and wasn't too convinced by the way it looked. Then I gave it a try with a couple shirts I had just washed and next thing you know I simply had to do my entire drawer! Everything folds so pretty, neat, and easy. I still couldn't believe it, so I ended up organizing our bed sheets and towels. I am amazed at how much of a game-changer this is. It's a must-try! I am in love with how beautiful it leaves my clothes." —Jesus Antonio Vedia

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in four colors).

    7. A tool rack for anyone who has watched Fantasia enough times to know the importance of keeping your brooms, mops, and dustpans upright and at-the-ready.

    amazon.com

    Mickey Mouse's magic mop made chores seem so much scarier than necessary.

    Promising review: "I was thankful to have found such a high-quality solution for hanging all of my cleaning tools! This is a great organizer with MULTIPLE brackets that holds everything in my laundry room! My mops, brooms, dusters, etc., and even has hooks to hang my wet rags and steam mop pads! It was super easy to install too!" —GirlOfPeace

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    8. A double closet rod – it just might help your tiny toddler manage to get their clothes/backpacks on their own, while also adding a massive amount of space to the closets in your home.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I like everything about this product. It is perfect for me. I had been using the Marie Kondo method for all my pants and leggings for two years. This saves more space and makes my closet look less cluttered. I hung all my thinner pants and leggings under my blouses. Easy to select. I am definitely happier. I gave away the plastic chest of drawers I had in the closet." —Sylvia

    Get it from Amazon for $19.18.

    9. An extendable microfiber duster set to give you some incredible Elastigirl powers when the devious dust mites on your ceiling fan have got to be annihilated.

    Amazon

    BTW, This includes an adjustable handle that extends from 24 to 49 inches, a regular short handle, a fluffy duster, and a bendable chenille and microfiber duster.

    Promising review: "Perfect for my needs. Love the telescoping design and that it has no protruding joints that would prevent it from fitting underneath furniture with low clearance. Reaches under, behind and around all the tight spaces I can't get to without moving heavy furniture around. The duster is also very lightweight and can handle delicate situations." —Sjay

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    10. A cabinet hot tool caddy, in a seriously chic copper color, that'll make your roommates think you've performed a disappearing act on your (TBH quite cumbersome) hot tool collection.

    Over cabinet door metal wire holder with three hot tools slid into rings, balanced on wire shelf below
    Amazon

    Promising review: "Great design! My hair-styling tools are hidden when I'm not using them, but it's still so easy to grab them whenever I need to. Delivery was also super fast." —Amazon Customer

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

    11. A handle hanger with enough hooks to hold several purses, necklaces, scarves, etc. If you need a space-saving solution while growing your stash pile of funky thrift store ties, this is happy to lend a hand.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I just moved into a tiny apartment and needed a space-saving way to store my bags in my closet without creasing them. This hanging rack is perfect! My backpacks, big totes, and small purses all fit, and the rack itself seem very sturdy. Plus, each hook is pretty wide, meaning multiple bags can be hung on one hook. Great item for the price!" —CSG

    Get it from Amazon for $7.92+ (available in six styles).

    12. A mesh sneaker bag so you can stop feeling de-feet-ed by smelly, dirty shoes. Attach this around the machine door (the hook-and-loop straps even work on round ones), toss your shoes in the pocket, and you're G2G!

    Square mesh pocket with two tennis shoes attached to inside washer door
    Amazon

    You can attach it to the door like the image above or just toss it in the machine like a regular delicates bag.

    Promising review: "Love this. My 12-year-old daughter decided white Keds would make her life complete. So this product became very necessary. Nice that you can use it for both the washer and dryer. The hook and loop is great and makes it easy to open. You can easily adjust the straps for a round door. Hoping this will make all the extra sneaker loads easier." —chicago

    Get it from Amazon for $7.09.

    13. A can crusher to help you recycle *and* magically relieve some stress in a satisfying and practical way. Honestly, now that you know this thing exists, you might be ~crushed~ if you don't get it.

    amazon.com

    You can mount this on a wall or table and crush cans to 20% of their original size. Reviewers have also said this works on smaller cans, so feel free to crunch that pet food right on up!

    Promising review: "I'm sorry to tell the can community that I've killed many of their brethren with this device. I think the other cans now recognize me and are trying to flee when I walk into the store, but they too will get what's coming to them. Muahahaha. Seriously, though, this is a good crusher. It does what I bought it for. The cans had no chance." —Markus

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in two sizes).

    14. A bakeware rack with adjustable dividers that'll customize to fit your kitchen supplies. This snazzy solution will give your cupboards some well deserved prestige.

    Flat base with adjustable wire brackets holding pans and tins upright
    Amazon

    Promising review: "We loved this so much that we bought a second one immediately! This works great for circular pans, cake pans, heavier pans, jelly roll pans, awkward collapsible colanders, cutting boards, whatever you want. Plus, it has non-skid feet which is a big plus!"—Organization Freak / Hobby Cook

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    15. A pull-down spice rack – it's gonna use up that useful vertical space in your cupboard while still letting your short shelf reach what you need. Finally being able to reach the paprika without a step stool? Magic.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Excellent product. I bought two of these shelves to help me organize cabinets in our camper. We have two cabinets in the kitchen area that are very high and not accessible to a person that is 5'3". These two shelves helped organize the cabinets and the pull-down feature gives me accessibility to the spices. They really hold a lot and work great. These shelves allow me to use space that I couldn't use before. It makes cooking a joy." —Brenda Williams

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    16. A squeegee broom that'll save the day when you adopted a dog *before* leaving your non-pet-friendly apartment. Get this and watch all traces of your pet vanish!

    amazon.com, Amazon

    This even works on hardwood floors!

    Promising review: "This thing just plain works. We got a mature golden retriever last year and were told he didn't shed. Then in the spring he started shedding badly. We were tired of hair everywhere and I found this product on a whim one day. I ordered it and it was tough at first. The bristles pulled the hair up but then caught the tufts and spread them around. I found that using short quick strokes with the rake turned upside down got the best results. The backside is like a squeegee and helps pull the hair up in long rolls and keeps the hair in one big pile." —Nick V.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.10.

    17. A bag insert for making your overpacked purse so perfectly organized Mary Poppins would be impressed.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    The insert features one large pocket, four small pockets, two zipper pockets, and six mesh pockets.

    Promising review: "This bag has revolutionized my life! As a professional woman who needs to stay organized, my purse was my downfall. All of my adult life, I have fumbled to find things on the bottom of my handbag no matter what the size. I have even tried carrying a flashlight to find things but I could never find the flashlight. Do I have a pen? It's got to be here somewhere. Paper? Yes, I think I have paper. Well, it's crumpled, but it's paper. Safety pins? Maybe, but it will take an hour to sort through everything else to find them. Maybe if I dump everything out on the counter, it won't take so long... NOW, I am the picture of efficiency. Wallet, pens, paper, cords, phone, keys, gum, safety pins, comb, ID badge, mouthwash, lipstick, cold capsules, and more are all tucked nicely into this travel bag which easily slips in and out of any purse I choose to carry. I purchased the small and medium-size and they fit perfectly inside my purses. The organizer holds a ton of stuff and everything is standing up in full view. Nothing is laying on the bottom of my purse. It has completely changed everything. I am DELIGHTED with this purchase!" —Janis Creason

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in 27 colors and three sizes).

    18. A cabinet that can integrate into your door's hinges so it can swing open and closed. An entire hidden pantry hooked onto the door is an illusion I am happy to embrace.

    Eight shelf hinged cupboard attached to closed door
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this cabinet! Our pantry is small so I had spices, oils, and other condiments in our kitchen cabinets. This cabinet allowed me enough room to store all of that, which emptied two of our smaller cabinets for pots and pans. Not only did it give me two extra cabinets to use in my kitchen, but I also have much better access and visibility to spices and other things." —BJ

    Get it from Amazon for $223.77.

    19. A magnetic bobby pin tray to hold tight to your hair pins, getting you out of any ~hairy~ situations when your 'do doesn't quite stay in place.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this product. My bathroom drawer looks so organized now that my bobby pins aren’t all over the place. I loved that it came with bobby pins which I had no idea would be included! It's nice to also have some new bobby pins!" —Monica

    Get it from Amazon for $14.98 (available in two colors).

    20. A set of drill brushes that attaches to a drill to help the one power tool in your home be a tad more useful.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this on a whim because my walk-in shower is just a pain to clean. I'm 51 and I guess I've just been old school with how I clean, so hand scrubbing it was for years. The FIRST time I used this to clean my shower it took five minutes AND it scrubbed my shower more clean than it has been in years. In the corners, the floor, the glass door...everything came out squeaky clean. I'm NEVER cleaning my shower by hand again." —Terry

    Get the set of three brushes from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in six colors).

    21. A U-shaped shelf organizer to give *U* room you didn't even know you had in your cabinets.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Product is perfect for what I need it to do. Fits just right, is more than sturdy enough, and has made my absolutely nightmarish spice cabinet look awesome. No more duplicate spices going bad in the back of the cabinet! It’s not at all difficult to assemble. Watch the assembly videos (they’re short) before you start opening the parts bags. Otherwise, it’s easy to get intimidated by all of the extra pieces." —Congaree

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99.

    22. A rust stain remover that'll have the shower sparklin' even if your ~rusty~ cleaning skills left it neglected for far too long.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I used it on our tubs, toilets, sinks, and shower. It took one bottle of this stuff to achieve the same result as three bottles of other brands. I will buy this again hands down. I just sprayed, walked away for a few minutes, and wiped and rinsed." —Carrie D.

    Get it from Amazon for $4.24.

    23. An oil stain remover – you're gonna ~marble~ at how well this gets rid of the olive oil stains your salad-loving heart almost left behind.

    Reviewer's before counter with dark stain, with wet product applied, dried product, and clean counter after removal
    amazon.com

    This works on marble, granite, limestone, travertine, slate, sandstone, grout (for ceramic and porcelain tile), masonry, and concrete – no need to worry about discoloration, because it's not gonna happen.

    Promising review: "Had an oil stain on my untreated West Elm marble top buffet from a kids toy. I purchased the oil stain remover and crossed my fingers that it would work. Followed the directions, waited 72 hrs to let it dry completely, and then scraped it off with a credit card. It worked perfectly! I couldn't be happier with the results. I highly recommend this product!" —marv

    Get it from Amazon for $10.80.

    24. A cabinet door organizer that'll give those awkwardly shaped tinfoil boxes and various cutting boards a spiffy spot in the kitchen all their own.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This organizer is so useful! I recently moved and ended up with a much smaller kitchen, so I've been doing everything I can to make sure there's a place for everything and no wasted space. Luckily, I have pretty wide cabinets, so this works out perfectly. I have one holding my cutting boards (four standard plastic boards) and another holding my foil, cling wrap, and parchment paper boxes. The organizer is super easy to assemble and it's completely versatile. Hang it over the cabinet door or attach it to the wall/cabinet door, which means it's great for renters and owners." —Kerry

    Get it from Amazon for $13.97.

    25. A set of cart trolley bags for earth-friendly folks who would like an efficient, plastic-free, shopping experience.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Each bag holds up to 50 pounds and has an extra pocket.

    Promising review: "This is exactly what I've been looking for. It fits all the shopping carts and you can detach them and take only one to tow all of the bags if you are shopping for smaller quantities. I've been using these for a few days now and I love it. I used to have a bunch of different bags in my trunk and it was very messy. With Lotus Bags, I can finally get rid of all the other bags and have these sitting nice and pretty in the trunk. The cooler bag is especially awesome to keep the items cool while shopping to transporting them home. The bags look very well made and sturdy." —JJ

    Get them from Amazon for $35.99 (available in two colors).

    26. A two-sided tea stand sure to keep your favorite teas so neat and orderly just looking at them is gonna feel like drinking a calming cup of chamomile.

    Upright stand with 12 clear plastic pockets
    Amazon

    This stand holds 100 tea bags and features 12 slots.

    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.

    27. A pack of expandable drawer dividers that'll help you organize your delicates with ease – wiggle your nose while you're at it and you might as well start calling yourself Samantha Stephens.

    Drawer with two dividers separating lace bottoms, briefs, and bras
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I will never be a person that folds underwear. It's never going to happen. That photo that comes with this product? Not me. But a simple tool like this turned out to be what it takes just to know where things are. Left. Center. Middle. Any organizer made of cloth was out. I wanted something rigid but adjustable. If an organizer has soft sides, it's going to end up underneath the things it's supposed to be separating.

    These fit firmly where I put them and there are no corners to snag clothing or hurt your hand on when you reach into the drawer. It's a well-engineered product. I created three sections to my large top dresser drawer by adding the partitions from front to back. I am so pleased with the difference that I am ordering two more sets so I can do my other drawers also. These OXO dividers cost more than the flimsy ones, but if I wasn't able to buy these, I would just not buy organizers." —SeattleBookMama

    Get them from Amazon for $19.99.

    28. A dryer vent coil brush, basically a magic wand for those hard-to-reach places, because you shouldn't ~brush off~ cleaning the machine that keeps your clothes clean!

    Fuzz covered wand with before and after of clogged and unclogged dryer vent
    Amazon

    Promising review: "We are in love! This thing cleans so well and gets all the way down the line and around the corner. It's wide bristles really help get all the lint out and even help scrub some of the really stuck in their pieces off. We use this regularly now to clean out the vent!" —Leslie

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    29. And finally, an insect sticky trap that'll make gnats, flies, midges, and whiteflies disappear. Place these directly into soil to keep your plant children from being ~bugged~ by life-sucking insects.

    amazon.com

    These are made using eco-friendly materials and they're non-toxic, so go ahead and use them with both indoor and outdoor plants!

    Promising review: "These work exactly as described! Fungus gnats took to one of my indoor plants and these sticky sheets were an extremely easy and effective solution. They were also easy to cut to size, and the 20-pack left me with plenty of extras for future use." —Leah

    Get a 10-pack from Amazon for $6.99.
