    Promising review: "I’m pretty sure I’ve never loved a purchase from Amazon as much as I love this one. This product is EXTREMELY well made and very unique. Plus, it does the job of hiding the ugly routers and cords. And the customer service was great and responsive. I was a little hesitant to spend the money on this but after years of living with the husband’s pile of technology, the money was well spent!" —AmazonEmme

    Get it from Covogoods on Amazon Handmade for $29+ (available in customizable sizes and colors).

    3. A two-tier cabinet turntable great to organize medicine bottles and products. Grab this and keep yourself from doubling up on the lotions and potions you have taking over your counters.

    4. A water bottle and tumbler organizer that has made the rounds on TikTok for a reason! Your emotional support water bottle is gonna be safe and snug in here, instead of always sitting out on your counter.

    5. A spice jar set with 18 different bamboo lidded jars. With this, you'll be able to display your eclectic spice collection on the counter...without it looking like a cluttered catastrophe.

    Several jars of spices with matching labels

    6. An under-cabinet drawer with a shelf on top — that vertical storage space can help you neatly pack away products that would otherwise end up on display on the top of the fridge or counter.

    A reviewer pulls out their drawer to reveal three sponges, four magic erasers, two handheld scrub brushes, one dish brush, four folded dish cloths, and a folded drying pad all neatly arranged

    7. A clear cereal dispenser that'll organize your kitchen and prove it's what's on the inside (of the cereal box) that counts. Who knew cereal could look so lovely?

    Three containers filled with different types of cereal

    8. A 10-piece set of drawer organizers to maximize the useful space inside drawers so you can get stuff off the counters. That random coffee cup full of pens may actually be filled with COFFEE soon, once the pens have a proper place.

    9. A roll-up drying rack made with metal grates covered in soft silicone that'll prevent scratches and take up basically no storage space. Roll this on top of the sink when in use and tuck it away in a drawer when the dishes are done! It dries fast, so no worries about drippings in your drawers.

    Promising review: "This is very sturdy and it allows air into cups, pans, etc. to dry easily – unlike a drying pad. It holds heavy pans with no problem. The color is soft and goes great with my white and gray countertops and it's extremely functional. It's easy to clean, just roll it up and store it under the sink. Highly recommend. 👍🏻" —Denise

    Get it from Amazon for $24.98+ (available in three sizes). 

    10. A cabinet door organizer so your awkwardly shaped plastic wrap and cutting boards won't get left out when your roommate can't find an obvious place to put them.

    12. A garden drying rack that's gonna look like a darling display on your counter when it feels like your home is being taken over by baby bottles.

    14. A KitchenAid attachment organizer that's easily gonna fasten under your upper cabinet so you no longer have to dig through drawers to find the gadget you need. In all honesty, at this very moment I have THREE of these attachments sitting on my counter beside my KitchenAid. I...need this.

    15. A magnetic stove shelf since you always have your go-to spices and condiments out on your countertop anyway. This'll free up space and make their placement look neat, tidy, and intentional.

    Promising review: "I purchased this product because I do a lot of food prep and have challenges placing prepared cuttings into containers. This unique cutting board allows me to cut various foods and slide them through an opening directly into a sealable plastic container. the time savings and organization allows for faster prep time. The bamboo board works well for this purpose." —N Hara

    Get it from Amazon for $59.98.

    24. A 3-in-1 wireless charger to rid your side table or countertop of pesky charging cords. Charge your iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods all at the same time, and all in the same place! No tangled-up collection of cords needed. 

    Promising review: "I love this charging station! I‘m one of those people who has all the Apple things, so being able to charge my phone, watch, and AirPod Pros at the same time is a total game changer for me. I can’t even guess how many times I’ve misplaced my AirPods because I didn’t have a dedicated place for them. Now there’s no question where they are every morning. Not only that, but the charger is pretty fast (especially for the watch and earbuds) and the station itself is easy to set up and use." —Anonymous

    Get it from Amazon for $35.99+ (available in four colors).

    Promising review: "I was skeptical of getting an electric toothbrush but after the first day of use I was hooked! The sleek design and the carrier that sticks to the mirror is very aesthetically pleasing. I'm also one to stick to routine and the 30-second quadrant interval buzz helps feed to that. My gums were sensitive the first week but after using this more they are sparkly clean! My dentist said my teeth and gums are extra healthy and clean! I definitely recommend it!" —Mosancz

    Get it from Quip for $25+ (available in multiple styles and plans).

    32. A honeycomb wine holder people are gonna be ~buzzing~ about when they see how beautifully it stores the drinks that get them buzzed. This definitely beats having bottles just sitting on your counter.

    33. An over-the-door rack for anyone who has been wracking their brain over how to store produce in sight (yet, don't have the counter space for it). You know, so it actually gets eaten.

    34. A microwave cart that may add just a small amount of counter space, but it's sure to make a big difference in any tiny kitchen.

    A lifestyle shot of the three-shelf cart with a microwave on top, serving ware on the bottom shelves, and large spoons hanging from the hooks on the sides
