    1. A pack of three five-tier pants hangers with a non-slip coating to maximize every inch of precious closet rod space.

    Promising review: "I just got a closet system installed and I purchased these as an alternative to the 10 velvet hangers I had to use to hang all my jeans. Now I am buying two more of these for my Lululemon pants! If you are looking for a great way of storing your jeans or pants, get this!" —Shopping Shopper

    Get the three-pack on Amazon for $21.99.

    2. A 23-loop scarf hanger so you no longer have to dig through your messy pile of wrinkled scarves each and every morning.

    One reviewer also notes that it's 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." —Nikolette

    Get it on Amazon for $10.87.

    3. An adjustable honeycomb drawer sorter that will basically force you to tame your wild sock drawer, because it's so easy to just tuck each pair of in its little zone you can't not use it.

    Promising review: "One of the better non-basket-style ways to organize small clothing pieces in a drawer that I've found to date. I tried another style that allows for size customization but found the unit to always shift during use. This piece remains in place after its set up in the drawer. It allows for me to keep track of socks and other small clothing well and I can easily see if I need to replace items that get worn over time. (Or if I'm losing one too many socks to the dryer monster.)" —Marilyn

    Get it on Amazon for $10.

    4. Or a set of four drawer organizers because you store more than just socks in your drawers, and everything deserves a designated place of its own.,

    Promising review: "I LOVE LOVE LOVE these organizers!! At just $13 for 4 organizers I took my chances and ordered two sets of 4. I had no problem fitting DD cups into these. I wear a 32 DD 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

    Get the set of four on Amazon for $13.97.

    5. An over-the-cabinet door basket so useful, you'll want to buy two — using one for cutting boards and one to hold your foil, plastic wrap, and parchment paper.

    And if you don't like hanging stuff over your cabinet doors, you can easily mount it with a few screws.

    Promising review: "I am so happy to have found this major space saver! I always struggle to find a place to store my cutting boards — I worry about how clean they are when I leave them on the counter. I love the fact that they are now tucked away and won't get dirty! I am able to fit two 3/4 inch thick wood boards as well as two thin plastic ones. My largest board is 16 inches tall and it fits with plenty of room to close the door. Yes, you can see the hangers on the outside of the door, but they are very discrete. All in all a fantastic buy!" —madeline audrey

    Get it on Amazon for $13.97.

    6. A pastel expanding folio — whatever papers you need to keep in order, from bills to finals notes, this four-pocket pal will be more than happy to do it.

    Promising review: "I've been using this folder for nearly three months and I'm a college student with a lot of papers to carry. I was looking for something cute, easy to carry, that fits manila folders, and overall keeps folders from getting crinkly. This DID IT. I can't express how much I love this — I got a second one that is coming very soon! As I mentioned, I use manila folders for A LOT of things and even the divider for them is just below the strap that keeps the folder closed. Nothing gets crinkled or bent and it is great. I can throw loose leaf papers, folders, or even books/small notebooks in here. It's adorable and a great color as well." —Alexa Viz

    Get one on Amazon for $7.99.

    7. A silverware sorter that takes up half the space of a traditional organizer, so you can use the rest of the drawer to store so much more.

    Promising review: "I have a tiny kitchen with only three drawers, so space is at a premium. My silverware organizer took up almost all of one drawer, so this organizer is a godsend. You can fit quite a few spoons etc. in each slot. My beater attachments fit perfectly into the top two hollows. I will say I have to flip my forks over face down in order to be able to shut and open my drawer, but then the drawer itself is kind of shallow. You NEED this if you have a small kitchen with few drawers!" —mialro

    Get it on Amazon for $9.24 (also available for knives).

    8. A shoe rack to take advantage of all your vertical space, whether you like to store your shoes in your closet, in the mudroom, or just by your door.

    Promising review: "Sturdy, lightweight, and simple to piece together. From opening the box to putting it in my closet it took about 20 minutes, and I was singing and dancing to music. It fit into my closet with ease and would definitely hold 24 pairs of shoes. I don't have 24 pairs anymore so this has given me a reason to go shopping!

    Tip: I do recommend using a rubber mallet, as others have stated. I didn't have the arm strength to pop the bars completely into place. You could probably use a regular hammer, but the larger softer surface of the rubber mallet will definitely help you along, and won't crack the pieces or bend the bars. Up to you!" —B. Bauerle

    Get the four-tier for $31.03 or the two-tier for $18.94, both on Amazon.

    9. A jewelry shelf for your closet that's both decorative and incredibly functional: it features a mesh grid for hooking earrings, a removable bar for storing bracelets, a small shelf for setting miscellaneous items, and 16 hooks for hanging necklaces.

    Promising review: "I LOVE this product! For years my jewelry has been dumped into one jewelry organizer "box" and yes, it has compartments, but after a while as new jewelry gets added in, it looked like a mess and it didn't have a good visibility on all the pieces I owned, so I never wore many of them.

    This jewelry organizer is really nice looking, sturdy, and the very best part is that now all my jewelry is displayed so that I can see every piece — and I already find myself wearing pieces that I haven't worn in years. I displayed it on the wall in my bedroom and because it's visible, putting my jewelry on is part of my daily dressing. GREAT solution, I really am excited about this product. Good quality, good value also." —carolyn aversano

    Get it on Amazon for $39.95.

    10. A six-pocket mesh shower organizer you hang on your existing curtain rings for seamless storage — the caddy won't rust, and the corners of your tub will stay clear so they're easy to clean.,

    Promising review: "Very creative way to store shower items if you don't want to purchase a shower caddy and take up space in other parts of your shower. Our old shower caddy rusted. We didn't want to spend $75+ on a "rust proof" caddy and also wanted to have space in our shower. This was a perfect solution! Easy to install and you can store quite a few things." —Nina from FL

    Get it on Amazon for $8.99 (five colors).

    11. An under-cabinet drawer with a shelf on top that doubles up your usable space, so you have easy access to everything in the drawer *and* everything on top of it.

    Promising review: "These are nice pieces that helped me organize underneath my bathroom sink! They fit perfectly! After organizing everything, I was so surprised I had so much more room that I grabbed more items out of the linen closet to fill it up. I still have a lot of room left. I also bought these based off the high ratings and they hold true. (This is Brad's wife.)" —Brad J. Leahy

    Get it on Amazon for $24.87.

    12. A set of tank top hangers so willing to support your love of camis and tanks that you'll be able to keep every single one you own but *still* save several feet of space on your closet rod, if you're collection's big enough.

    Promising review: "I had 37 plastic hangers holding up 37 tank tops. This took up one half of my closet. I purchased two sets of these hangers and I fit all 37 tank tops on them. This now takes up about six inches in my closet. From four feet to six inches. All of my tank tops are still easily accessible too, which was one of my concerns. This is my best Amazon purchase to date." —jay money

    Get a set of three on Amazon for $12.99.

    13. A tiered acrylic organizer that will let you pull your makeup out of that cluttered bag or drawer and instead neatly display all the products you use every day conveniently on your counter.,

    Promising review: "My bathroom was an extremely hard space to get organized because it's very small, has very little storage, and both my husband and myself use it everyday to get ready. This organizer has opened up space on my extremely small countertop, and now the sink and countertop are much more functional. It is extremely strong clear plastic and seems very durable. I can fit all of my daily makeup in it, and everything has its own little spot. When I get done using one product, I put it right back in its spot, and I have been able to keep a clean bathroom since I got it!" —LD

    Get it on Amazon for $11.99.

    14. And a stacked two-piece organizer for your jewelry or any overflow products (looking at you, lipstick collection) that won't fit in the other sorter.

    This way, you can have all of your favorite lip color ~options~ out — which just might mean you'll wear them all more often.

    Promising review: "I love this. It looks much nicer than I thought it would. The plastic is of a relatively heavy weight, and super clear, especially in comparison to a lipstick/brush organizer from a different manufacturer I already own. The drawers open and close easily, and the various sizes make a lot of sense for face, blush, et cetera. Modularity is also a plus. I have the three sections with drawers side by side, with the top open section stacked, so I have room to add on top in case I want more space. I do have a separate holder for palettes, however, so if you have a lot of makeup this probably won't be a single solution for you. Worth it though!" —Maddy Lumpkin

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    15. A five-piece kitchen cabinet organizer set to optimize every square inch of storage space by doubling up on shelves, stacking pot lids neatly, and turning previously non-functional doors into something that's even more worth having.

    It comes with everything pictured here: three sizes of helper shelves that let you use every inch of vertical space, an upright rack for pot and pan lids and baking sheets, and a spice rack and a wrap rack you can mount to your doors for easy access. Some reviewers even use it to transform their plastic container storage — lids fit perfectly in the spice and wrap racks.

    Promising review: "Definitely helped me make my cabinets more useful. Love the shelves, as they fit in all my cabinets. The biggest one held my large dinner plates with no problem. I used the pan lid organizer to hold pan lids and a couple of small fry pans. Will not work for larger ones, but the small ones will fit in it. The spice rack holds about 10 spice bottles. The wrap organizer was too small to hold everything I needed it to hold. It only is big enough to hold about 3 boxes of wraps, and I needed it to hold more than that. So, I am going to use it elsewhere, maybe in my laundry area. Great buy!" —Chelsea Joy

    Get the set on Amazon for $18.67.

    16. An extra pan rack so you can you use the one that comes with the kit for lids, but this one to neatly store your baking sheets, casserole pans, and pie dishes (or just regular pans).,

    Promising review: "This product is fantastic. Literally half the price of other pan/lid racks, and so nice, and so flexible!!! I use it for five pans, varying in size from 8-inch to a 3-1/2-quart sauté pan. It is so stable and holds the pans off the cabinet floor so they're never scratching anything. This makes using the pans SO MUCH MORE CONVENIENT. It basically changed my life. The product, though inexpensive, is well-made, washed up well when it arrived, and is sturdy enough to support my fifth pan between it and the wall." —SLRSteigerwald

    Get it on Amazon for $8.87.

    17. A clip-in mop and broom organizer that can turn any 17-inch section of wall into an impeccable cleaning closet the moment you hang it up.

    Promising review: "This product is fantastic! It was easy to mount and hanging things is a breeze. My house is very old with no extra closet or pantry space. I needed to clean up the dreaded corner of shovels and a mop. Luckily this product was able to do that — and it comes with hooks. Since it's hung by my back door in the kitchen I can hang my aprons and purse on it. This little piece is very sturdy and so are those little hooks. My double-zippered purse is full of weight and it holds like a charm. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who's just looking for a sensible option." —Shellybeenz

    Get it on Amazon for $10.99.

    18. A key and mail drop-zone caddy so when you're late to work already, you don't have to search your entire house for your car keys or the birthday card you've been meaning to mail your mom.

    Promising review: "Perfect!! It comes with screws and anchors, but I hung it up with Command Strips to avoid holes in the wall of our rental. It stays up great. It's like one-inch shorter than some of the ads we get in the mail, but hey it's all paper. It bends to fit!

    We hang our keys on it, I hang my wristlet, and my boyfriend hangs his back scratcher. :P We also put our sunglasses in with the mail so we can grab those on our way out." —FishyBirdMLS

    Get it on Amazon for $9.99.

    19. A storage basket that hangs over your bathroom cabinet door becuase your hair dryer, straightener, and favorite curling irons don't deserve to be constantly tangled together in your drawer anymore.

    Promising review: "This 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 also looks nice. It fits two of my blow dryers, a flat iron, and a 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

    Get it on Amazon for $15.99.

    20. A cascading wall organizer you can simply hang on a hook to make all of your most important papers and bills easy to access, then quickly fold up to easily take with you or stash away.

    Promising review: "I purchased this to use as a part of our family's kitchen "command center"; this is in a highly visible area of our house so I wanted something that was functional, low-profile, and not an eyesore. This organizer is PERFECT. There are enough pockets for each of our four family members, plus a few more that I've designated for bills and other correspondence. It helps keep the paper clutter off the counters and easily accessible for each of us. I love the clear front pocket where I keep my second grader's "specials" calendar so he can easily see whether he has PE, art, music, or computer lab on any given school day. I like the bright colors; they help to liven up my kitchen but aren't at all tacky. Each folder is removable so the colors can go in any order you want.

    A medium-sized 3M Command hook holds unit this well, especially since we don't have more than four lbs of papers in it at any given time. (When the pockets are bulging, that's what I know I need to go through and put things away!)" —Heather

    Get it on Amazon for $10.

    21. A gift wrap organizer because once the holidays are over, you're gonna need a place to neatly stash all the leftover paper to save for next year.

    Be sure to check the lengths of your wrapping paper rolls before you order, though; some reviewers say theirs didn't quite fit.

    Promising review: "I am glad to say that I am very satisfied with it. Out of the 17 rolls of wrapping paper I own, 15 of them are the 30" length. (It just so happened that I was < 10" away from the end of both of the tall rolls anyway so no problem.) So I fit 15 30"rolls of wrapping paper in this organizer (two of these rolls are not gift wrap but kraft shipping paper, so they are twice as thick as any of the other rolls). It appears to be very sturdy and at the price I paid, even if it only lasts me a year, I'd still feel it was worth it." —Allison Bourgeois

    Get it on Amazon for $5.99.

    22. A set of six fridge bins to help motivate you to get your meal prep on, or at least help everyone else actually put ingredients away in the proper place.

    Promising review: "Got a new fridge and wanted to maximize space. These work well to keep things organized. I use one to keep all my lunch stuff in one spot so I can just pull out the tray. (Lettuce and other salad stuff) and one for cheese. And they are great for all our freezer stuff — skinny tray for husband’s freezer burritos, bigger one for his other “freezer lunches.” So far, no cracks, easy slide, sturdy, easy clean." —S. Lee

    Get the set on Amazon for $28.99

    23. An over-the-door pantry rack that's like instantly conjuring extra storage space out of nowhere the moment you hang it up.

    Of course, it works on all kinds of doors, like the ones in the laundry room, linen closet, and garage — almost anywhere you need extra storage for little things. It also has the option of mounting directly to the door.

    Promising review: "I had three smaller racks for spices hung one above the other on the side wall of my pantry. No spices other than the small bottles would fit in it. My sister hung this in her pantry and I was jealous of how much she was able to fit in it so I ordered one for me and replaced my smaller ones. ALL my spices, including my oversize bottles from Costco, PLUS all my vinegars, oils, boxes of salt and more went in here, on the same wall, clearing up tons of shelf space! One of the best kitchen purchases I ever made. Worth every cent." —GrimeyGal

    Get it on Amazon for $32.99.

    24. A stackable can rack — it's tilted at an angle, so the cans roll toward the front, and you can always see exactly what you have before you go to the store.

    It holds up to 36 cans without batting an eye.

    Promising review: "I ordered two and now I am going to come back and get two more because they are incredible. You can adjust the bars so you can use it for small cans like tuna or little cat food, or whatever. I only used a couple of the dividers because they just kind of stay organized without needing them, but it takes a few seconds to put together.

    My concern was that they would be wobbly because I have to put them on wire shelving, but that was unwarranted. It is sturdy, easy to organize and well above and beyond expectations." —Jenni Dean

    Get one on Amazon for $19.97.

    25. A versatile four-shelf unit you can enlist to organize bins in the garage, extra appliances in the kitchen, or your bulk household supply buys in the laundry room.

    Promising review: "I was looking for additional shelf space for my smaller kitchen appliances and found this item. It took less than ten minutes to put together and is very sturdy. I especially like that you can adjust the bottom of the unit (my tile floor is somewhat uneven and changing one side made it stop wobbling). This was just what I was looking for!" —Victoria S.

    Get it on Amazon for $39.

    26. A tool organizer that slips right over a standard five-gallon bucket to guarantee you'll always have the stuff you need for any given project close at hand.,

    It has 30 different pockets in varying sizes, including some on the inside.

    Promising review: "Provides quick access to tools. No more digging through a jumble of tools in a bag or toolbox. You quickly get used to where everything is at so before long you can go right to the tool you what. There are better tool totes available sans the bucket but for the price, the Bucket Boss is an inexpensive way to organize a bunch of small hand tools. Now have two in service because the convenience of being able to select the tool you want almost instantly saves a ton time time and greatly reduces the frustration of constantly searching for the right tool as you move between tasks." —BNA

    Get it on Amazon for $12.17.

    27. A two-sided tea caddy — it holds over 100 tea bags at a time, meaning you can ditch the piles of boxes to free up tons of cabinet or shelf space.,

    Promising review: "I love this so, so much! It has eliminated all the boxes of teabags cluttering up my cupboards and opened up some space I can use for my loose leaf teas. Everything is easy to find and pull out, and you can remove each little plastic holder to fill with ease. The design confused me briefly because it looked like it was able to open up from the middle for some reason, but this doesn't seem to be the case. Tea is now so much simpler and enjoyable, and no boxes of bags lay forgotten in the back, as I discovered when I pulled out all the boxes to fill this. My shorter roommate can now reach for her teas without getting the step stool, too. The design is simple yet elegant enough to leave on the counter." —Alexia

    Get it on Amazon for $23.33.

    28. A set of 30 adhesive spice grips because every kitchen's different, and these let you set up a spice rack wherever works best in *yours*.,

    Besides the inside of a cabinet door, you could stick 'em on an empty wall in your pantry, on the side of your fridge, or wherever is most convenient for you.

    Promising review: "I am pleased to have found a solution to organizing my spice cabinet that works for me! I did not want them to be permanent — I wanted the flexibility to move them if I need to rearrange or take them down cleanly if they end up breaking or failing — so I pulled off the adhesive strips that came on them and instead used medium size 3M Command Velcro hanging strips (three or four per each clip strip). I have several sizes of spices, including square glass, and they are all holding fine so far. I would rather have had all six strips white than 3 white/3 black, but I can live with it. For the cost (and since I used removable hanging strips), I'll be happy if they last a year or so before I need to replace them. I'm thrilled to not have stacked spice jars cascading out of the cabinet every time I cook!" —Dana

    Get them on Amazon for $9.87.

    29. A set of six stackable drawer organizers ready to whip your junk drawer into shape once and for all.,

    Of course, true to any versatile product, these work wonderfully for bathroom drawers, kitchen drawers, office supplies, and any other cluttered places lurking around your home.

    Promising review: "This set is exactly what I’ve been looking for. They fit perfectly in my drawers, and stacked they are the exact depth of the shallow drawer in my vanity. Perfect for organizing all the small tools and bits of makeup, bottles of perfume and tubes of medicine etc. Appear to be heavy/high quality enough to last a long time." —S. Knox

    Get the set of six on Amazon for $14.99.

    30. A pack of Space Bags that will instantly make exponentially more space in your linen closet or garage by shrinking clothes and linens down to a fraction of their regular size.

    They work with basically any vacuum cleaner, which means this particular transformation only takes a few minutes from start to finish.

    Promising review: "I was desperate to get more closet room and decided to give this product a chance. What a success! The bags are made of thick, quality plastic. It is very easy to seal and to vacuum. Plus it stays sealed and I actually needed only some of the bags, as they are truly big. I placed a dryer sheet in each sealed bag to keep the clothes smelling fresh. My closet looks so well organized, I have much more room and my winter clothes are stored safely and beautifully. For the supreme quality product you get, it is, in my view, very reasonably priced." —A.A.

    Get a box of five bags on Amazon for $23.99+ (three sizes).

    31. An under-bed shoe tote to free up a little extra closet space without having to get rid of even a single favorite pair.

    Plus, you can still easily access the ones you stored simply by sliding the case out using the handle.

    Promising review: "At first I really disliked and was thrown off that this doesn't have any cardboard support in the separators like I have had in the past. But turns out its been actually super helpful as I use this for my shoes I use less often, which are mostly big heels and shoes that don't exact fit in tiny box compartments. The flexibility of this organizer worked perfectly for me. There is a lot of extra give to be able to put in shoes that are weirdly shaped or too big to lazy flat and still be able to zip it closed with no problem." —Michelle Laughlin

    Get it on Amazon for $12.39.

    32. Or a pack of four plastic storage bins on wheels that also feature a hinged lid that opens halfway — meaning you don't have to pull the entire thing out to access what you have stashed inside.

    Promising review: "These arrived on time. They are (a four-pack of) Sterilite-brand under-bed boxes. The top and sides are clear and a good quality sturdy plastic. The top is hinged in the center. The wheels are a very nice touch: they slide easily on the carpet even with a load of heavy stuff in them. You can also stack these vertically, as the lids have little indentations to take the wheels of the box on top. Another nice touch. They are EXACTLY 6 and 7/8-inches high so measure your bed! In my house, I have 4 beds and they fit under 3 of them. If I needed to get them under the 4th bed, I might try: (a) buy a less tall box (b) pop the wheels out of these boxes to reduce the height (c) raise the bed a hair by putting casters under the bed wheels." —Dickens

    Get the pack of four on Amazon for $64.71 (or about $16.17 each).
