    1. A flexible, silicone kitchen sink organizer that'll neatly hold your sponge, dish soap, hand soap, and more. (I can't be the only one who gets annoyed when my roommate leaves a wet sponge just sitting on the counter!) And it wipes clean since it's made of silicone so you don't have to worry about yucky mold and mildew.

    Promising review: "I have been looking for something to put my dishwashing soap in and not worry about spills around my sink. Tried so many and then I finally found this. It's easy to wash, soft rubber, does not collect water underneath and keeps everything nice, clean and organized. I love it!" β€”karmen haik

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    2. A pack of hanging vacuum bags if you're already dreading having to store all your heavy winter coats come March. With these bags, you can vacuum all the air out so they take up a fraction of your closet space. And you can do this while they're on the hanger instead of trying to fold and smush them in a regular vacuum bag.

    Promising review: "This is by far the best on the market that I have found. I was really amazed by how much I was able to get into the vacuum bag and how much it compresses. They're waterproof, dust-proof, and sweat-proof. I couldn't believe how easy peasy these are to open up and use. I also store blankets, pillows, etc., when we go on camping trips, vacation. It's always 14 of us and 8 are kids. It's nice to be able to give everyone their own bag with their bedding and clothes to keep their stuff together in their spot and save space in the RV. So many ways to use. They don't lose suction until you open it. Highly recommend it." β€”EsteeDarla

    3. A 15-piece set of airtight food containers for helping you achieve a pantry that looks like Clea and Joanna from The Home Edit stopped by. Sure, pasta is great and all but aren't you tired of buying boxes of spaghetti only to realize you had an unopened box shoved in the back of your cupboard? This'll help you figure out what you do and don't have at a glance.

    Promising review: "I have tried other brands of containers for airtight storage but they are a hassle to clean. This system is fantastic for airtight seal yet easy to clean. I like the variety of sizes, the cute labels, and the chalk marker. I will be ordering more!" β€”mds2006

    Get it from Amazon for $38.99+ (available in four colors).

    4. A set of stainless-steel S-shaped hangers because you can basically only fit like three pairs of pants in your drawer before there's no room left. These'll maximize hanging space so you can store all your pants neatly in the closet and use the valuable drawer space for other clothes.

    Promising review: "I use these to hang up leggings and work slacks, the S- shape allows the pants stay put when I pull one off better than other similar multilevel hangers I've purchased. The clips included also hold things in place conveniently." β€”Miche S

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $20.99.

    5. A set of adjustable shelves to fit your storage needs. This way you can prevent clutter from taking over every inch of space on your desk.

    Promising review: "I have gone through many different desk organizers trying to find the right one and this is it. It is sturdy, adjustable, and stylish. I read that many people were disappointed by the fact that there were no covers for the screws but I purchased the light wood tone and I think the screws add to the aesthetic. It looks great and I love it. I would recommend this product to anyone who asked!" β€”Julia Harrison

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

    6. A pack of cord clips so you can finally untangle your jumble of cables. Each wire gets its own clip, so you won't have to bother testing every cord until you find your phone charger.

    Six clips each holding one cord

    Promising review: "Love this product. Better than all our other gadgets that we bought to hold wires and cords in place." β€”VanDorn Top Picks

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $6.95.

    7. A nail polish organizer that'll house your polishes in a way that lets you see exactly what shades you own β€” and which ones you don't and will unfortunately have to get ASAP. I don't make the rules!

    The clear plastic case holding rows of essie nail polish

    Promising review: "This is even better than I expected! It organizes all my polishes neatly and I can move them if I need to! I've tried all kinds of organizers but nothing met all my needs until this...I'm buying three more!" β€”Rosie Larson

    Get it from Amazon for $27.89+ (also available in pink).

    8. A rolling laundry sorter if you've definitely given up halfway through separating your towels from your delicates and just tossed the whole load into the washer. *looks around nervously* Heh heh! Not me! I would never!

    Some genius reviewers had the idea of labeling each bag to make it clear what's what. To do that, you'll need some letter stencils and a permanent marker.

    Promising review: "It will make sorting and doing laundry much easier. The cart has locking wheels to keep it in place. Also, each section is separate and can be lifted out on its own. Will work out much better than some previous versions I've had where compartments where stitched together. I'm excited to use this. Was pretty easy and straitforward to put together." β€”Cassandra Samuels

    Get it from Amazon for $34.87+ (available in three colors).

    9. A wall-mounted retractable clothes rack for anyone who lacks a dryer or a lot of extra space. Each rack can hold up to 60 pounds, making it a great drying rack or extra storage for winter clothes in the garage.

    Promising review: "I love this! It’s weird how a laundry clothes hanger can make a person so happy. It is so compact and convenient. I’d say it holds about 20 or so shirts β€” one dryer full at least. Way better than a huge clothing rack. This one forces me to put away the hanging clothes in a more timely manner." β€”Amazon Customer

    "I attached next to the door and it's completely out of the way. Opens to hang clothes right out of dryer. Much better than an over-the-door hook, and doesn't interfere with door." β€”Lynnp2632

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    10. A space-saving hanger organizer because you're an adult and you 100% cannot have a jumbled bin of hangers.

    Promising review: "I didn't know that I had needed this all of my life until I got one for my husband out of desperation. His hangers were all over the house, so I got this to try. I assembled it for him while he was at work and immediately ordered one for myself. It doesn't take up much floor space but holds a ton of my velvet hangers. Much better than any other method I've tried to contain hangers in the past, and it looks really nice. Sturdy and high quality. Easy to assemble." β€”SavvyShopper

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95 (also available in multipacks).

    11. A three-tier shoe rack to showcase your kicks and potentially save you from spraining your ankle since you've tripped over the massive pile of shoes sitting next to the front door more often than you'd like to admit.

    Promising review: "This was SUPER easy to put together. It literally took me longer to open the box than it did for me to put the shelving together!! I've been on the market for a shoe rack for YEARS β€” I've never been able to find something that I liked the look of, as well as fit enough shoes for it to be a worthy investment. I was browsing on Amazon and was SO HAPPY to find these! It now holds ALL of our shoes in an organized row in our foyer, and now there's no clutter or mess in any of our closets. It also reminded me of ALL OF THE SHOES I own, and it's helped for me to curb my shoe spending, since I can now see exactly what I own!" β€”Joanna Kim

    Get it from Amazon for $24.98 (available in five colors).

    12. A broom and mop organizer so the precariously balanced pile of cleaning supplies don't come tumbling down the minute you grab your Swiffer.

    Promising review: "Holds better than any rack I've had. Nothing falls off and the hooks are a welcome addition for holding the small items. This is my second one, as I liked the first one so well." β€”Jami Wallis

    "Sturdy and strong. I tried other brands but they are not strong enough to hold brooms. This one really works. I wish there was more space between each holder, but otherwise I'm very satisfied." β€”eb

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

    13. A two-tier expandable shelf that'll bring order to your bathroom cabinet. There's even an opening in the center so it can fit around the sink pipes. Genius!

    Reviewer pic of before and after putting the shelf in the cabinet under the sink. On the left, disorganized supplies everywhere and on the right, the same supplies now organized nicely with even more on the three differently-sized shelves

    Promising review: "I found this shelf to be extremely sturdy and handy! I loved how it works around my pipes and how it looks like a perfectly clean and organized cabinet and not cluttered. I tried everything from baskets and bins to wire shelves but they did not work. This under sink shelf lets you see everything. The metal is plenty sturdy for bath and beauty items. I love how it extends very wide! Love this shelf!!!" β€”Nicole Myers

    Get it from Amazon for $24.97 (available in three colors).

    14. A two-tier no-drill corner shower caddy if you're tired of playing Tetris on your shower's ledges with your toiletries.

    Reviewer photo of the shelf holding toiletries and a loofah

    Promising review: "Really sticks when nothing else does. We have weird 'tiles' that are textured. No suction cups, no Command hooks, nothing sticks! THIS does. Has stood up to a few weeks of pushing down on heavy pump bottles of soaps, kids yanking on hanging accessories, and a few shower cleanings. Great value and stays where you put it." β€”Mrs Jones

    Get it from Amazon for $18.60.

    15. A jewelry cabinet cleverly disguised as a mirror for anyone who's basically given up on wearing jewelry because detangling the pile of necklaces in your jewelry box is not something you have the time or or desire to handle.

    Promising review: "Why the heck didn't I get one of these years ago?? This is a quality product. Sturdy and well made. At first I thought the light was a little gimmicky but it totally helps me see what I'm doing in my dimly lit bedroom. This is soooo much better than a jewelry box or trying to figure out your own clever storage like I have for years (trying to put off splurging for a product like this). I totally regret not getting one sooner. A lot of earring capacity, ton of everything capacity and ease of use for someone as lazy as me is critical! If you're on the fence, get one, you won't regret it! So worth the money!" β€”PHILLIP G.

    Get it from Amazon for $119.99+ (available in six colors).

    16. An expandable honeycomb drawer organizer because you know what's really cool? Being able to find a matching pair of socks.

    Promising review: "Great! I loved it and will order more in the future. It is better than using rubber bands when I roll socks to keep them together." β€”Shirley L. A. Fayette

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    17. A shower curtain liner with mesh pockets to save your toes from an avalanche of heavy shampoo and conditioner bottles that fall from your itty bitty ledge every time you shower.

    Promising review: "This is the perfect storage solution for our tiny NYC bathroom and so much better than a shower head hook caddy. It's great that the pockets are mesh so as not to hold water/get gross." β€”Emily Tozer

    Get it from Amazon for $18.67.

    18. An over-the-tank TP holder so you never have to text your roommate in a panic and ask them to leave a spare roll outside the door. It's also better than toilet paper stands, which always seem to be an inch too far away whenever you reach for the roll.

    Promising review: "The over-the-tank toilet paper holder is so much better than one that is on the floor. I love it." β€”Eileen Rios

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in six colors).

    19. An electrical outlet cover with a power strip that'll hide cluttered cords stat. It's also pretty great if you want to push your furniture right up against the wall but can't because your phone charger adapter is in the way.,

    Promising review: "These just came in this past hour and are already in my wall outlets. Several of my outlets are located in odd places with no way around using them or not. I need the outlets. Whenever someone sits on our sofa it pushes against the outlet. I've tried power strips with 'sidesaddle' outlet plugs but only had limited success. This outlet cover is the solution I was looking for and I feel relieved not to be worrying about the outlet getting damaged." β€”JojoB

    "Amazing product! I have tried like six of these from different companies and this one is by far the best. It fits so easily behind anything!" β€”Lexie Valade

    Get it from Amazon for $23.95+ (available in four lengths).

    20. A password logbook if your brain doesn't have room for the Wi-Fi password. This will organize all your logins so you don't have to.

    Promising review: "This is so much better than my old system of sticky notes in a ziplock bag." β€”FlutterbyStarlight

    "Finally I have one place to keep all my login and passwords. I have tried to keep track in a notebook but wasn’t very good at updating it. With this little book you can keep the websites alphabetized." β€”J. Marten

    Get it from Amazon for $6.33.

    21. A set of under-the-shelf baskets for taking advantage of vertical space.

    The baskets holding notebooks and stationery and hanging under a bookshelf

    Promising review: "I purchased two different under-the-shelf baskets and this was BY FAR the best and works great. I have more room, a neater-looking space, and easier-to-find pantry items. These are heavy enough and sturdy; they don't slack or slide around. They look so great I used three in my kitchen hutch as well as in the pantry and a kitchen cupboard. If you need extra space, want to make your shelves neater and easier to find things, hook up with these. You will not be disappointed!" β€”RenFris

    Get four from Amazon for $29.99.

    22. A silverware sorter because you cringe every time you open the drawer and see your forks, knives, and spoons spilling out of their tray.

    Promising review: "Wish I would have had this years ago! After years of struggling to keep my one small utensil drawer organized and failing, this organizer has done the job. It doubles the amount of silverware storage space and frees up half of my drawer for larger serving spoons and such. I love it." β€”Janet Celender

    Get it on Amazon for $7.49 (available in three colors and four sizes).

    23. An under-cabinet drawer to hold your bottles of cleaners *and* to store smaller supplies like sponges, brushes, and cleaning cloths.

    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

    Promising review: "This turned out to be one of those 'great values' I can brag about to my friends (and always skeptical husband too!!). Expecting a flimsy, shaky-type unit, I was astonished to find it SOLID and STURDY. It assembled in a flash. The basket slides easily in the track and the wires don't bend or get crooked with heavier items. I have several powder type cleaners and bottles leaking fluids that were always falling over, making a mess to clean up. Because the basket pulls out smoothly, everything stays upright. I've tried several types of organizers in the bathroom cabinet, the revolving plastic unit, the tiered steps, the U-shaped shelves, and nothing has worked as well as this one. I may buy more for other 'storage needed' areas, e.g. linen closet, bedroom closet, and my office. Oh, it's also easy to take the unit out from under the sink and recessed floor to be able to clean under there." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it on Amazon for $24.81.

    24. Some under-bed storage containers so you can maximize storage space and conceal all the bits and bobs that need hiding. You could probably even use it under your couch depending on how much space there is between the base and the floor.

    You can use these for so much more than clothing! Think craft supplies, extra toiletries, shoes...basically whatever you have too much of.

    Promising review: "I have a full size bed and two of these fit perfectly underneath! They are a good size and hold a lot of stuff! They are easy to pull out and I like that the zippers open up the all the way unlike some other brands I’ve tried! They seem like they will last a long time which is great!" β€”Kaurin

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in six colors).
