    30 Useful Products That'll Actually Help Declutter Basically Your Entire Home

    Pictures to inspire you, with products to actually help you make it happen.

    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 copy of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up because the first step to a truly decluttered space is actually getting rid of stuff — and this will show you how.

    The cover with the title, the subtitle "the Japanese art of decluttering and organizing", and the author, Marie Kondo
    Penguin Random House

    I mean yes, you can also totally watch the Netflix show and learn everything you need to know to get started! But the book's packed with extra motivation and tips. Although I don't think it's the end-all be-all of how to live, I've used her system for my clothes and shoes, and it really does work. Besides helping me get rid of things, it also helped me really hone my sense of what I'll actually wear and use based on which products genuinely, well, ~spark joy~, so I'm a better shopper for myself. 

    Get it from Amazon for $8.58+ or Bookshop (to support local bookstores) for $15.63.

    (If the whole system seems a little — or very — impractical to you, though, I also recommend Rachel Hoffman's book, $12.38 on Amazon or $15.63 from Bookshop).

    2. A Zero-Waste Box from Terracycle, where you (or you + your neighbors, or high school, or dorm) team up to buy a box that you then stuff with hard-to-recycle items, and mail back to Terracycle to be recycled.

    Terracycle

    Yes, basically you're paying for your stuff to be recycled (the reason your curbside collection doesn't take all of the things = recyclers want to make money. If they can't make money on it, then you have to pay for it to happen). Read more on Terracycle, and order a small "everything" box (well, almost everything) for $199, or a beauty products and packaging pouch for $41.

    There are also tons of free recycling programs through Terracycle, where the companies pay for you to recycle the stuff you bought from them (that your municipal program won't accept). And these aren't only hippie/earthy brands! They include Brita (yes, the water filters and jugs), Colgate, eos, Febreeze, Hasbro Toys, Burts Bees, and many others.

    3. A set of dresser drawer dividers so you can keep all your clothes that spark joy folded in neat rows that easily adjust to the perfect widths.

    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. Well engineered product. I created three sections to my large top dresser drawer by adding the partitions 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 a set of two on Amazon for $20.99.

    4. A set of three airtight snack and cereal containers — they'll 1) let you consolidate your open box and backup box into one spot *and* 2) keep all of those delicious snacks fresher for longer.

    Amazon

    They also work well for dried rice and beans in the pantry; you can easily measure out exactly how much you need for a recipe. And you can use 'em one-handed: an easy press opens the pour spout, then you pour, and press again to close.

    Promising review: "I love these! They are nice looking, sturdy, and easily fit a regular box of cereal and/or snacks. The ability to just pop open and pour with a single hand is hassle free. They also let me know when I need more cereal. I always hated going to get a bowl of cereal and being disappointed when there wasn’t even a bowls worth. I did wash them first. I even pulled off the seals and washed those as well. Everything went back together seamlessly. Overall, extremely happy with these." —Rachel B.

    Get the pack of three on Amazon for $51.95.

    5. Or a set of airtight ~Pop Containers~ that are a little less convenient to quickly open and pour, but come in a variety of sizes and types to fit whatever your particular pantry needs.

    The five-piece set: one tall large one, a midsize one 3/4 the size of the large, two medium ones each 1/2 the size of the large, and a small one 1/4 the size of the large
    Amazon

    They're all sized and shaped to be as efficient with your shelf space as possible.

    Promising review: "I never thought I would super organize my cabinets. I purchased these with the effort to reduce waste (using ziplocks etc) and extend the freshness/shelf life of my pantry items. I absolutely love them. This is the perfect starter kit for a smaller kitchen or family. Then purchase more when you realize which container sizes are best for you and your needs!" —SLTelescope

    Get the pictured five-piece starter set on Amazon for $49.95 (also available as a three-piece set for $36.76).

    Thumbnail image credits: 1, 2.

    6. And for your fridge, a set of clear storage bins — they'll make it so much easier to pull out the stuff in the very back without having to dig for it, so you'll actually be able to find the bottle of ketchup you already have, instead of having two open at once.

    the clear acrylic bins
    Amazon

    And when you go through your fridge to organize everything with these beauties, you'll inevitably find tons of old stuff to throw away! All the bins are about 14 inches deep; the set comes with two wide bins, two narrow bins, one lidded egg bin, and one bin designed specifically for cans. They'd also work wonders in the pantry! 

    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 them on Amazon for $29.99

    7. Plus some custom decals for your most-used drawers and shelves so you can feel like a Professional Organizer every time you open your fridge, and so everyone knows where to find everything and where to put things away.

    CalliBanana Boutique / Etsy

    Promising review: "These labels are perfect! I ordered several to organize and label fridge bins. I love the font. They are super easy to apply as well. I may end up labeling everything in my house." —Wendy Norman

    Get them from CalliBanana Boutique on Etsy for $1.50+ per decal (available in 4 letter heights, 18 font options, and 10 colors).

    CalliBanana is a Flemingon, New Jersey–based small business specializing in custom decals for all around your home.

    8. A paper shredder because you'll finally be able to destroy that stockpile of credit card offers, old tax returns, and other stuff you (reasonably) didn't want to just chuck in the recycling.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I purchased this shredder three months ago. Love it!I was looking for something basic for my home office. This shredder chops the sheets both horizontally and vertically ("cross-cut"). Instead of having some long spaghettis of papers, you get some little pieces of spaghettis, much harder for somebody to infer the original content. It starts automatically when you insert a sheet (you can disable this behavior), and stops on its own if you don't insert anything else. The security trigger locks the shredder as soon you remove the head from the bin. There's a transparent window to see through to know when to empty the bin, it's not noisy, and it doesn't take much room. Cons? None for now." —Andrew

    Get it on Amazon for $34.26. (If you have lots of shredding to do though, you could even just bring it to your local UPS or FedEx store, where they'll take care of it for you.)

    9. And a slim four-pocket expanding-file organizer perfect for holding onto the few papers that are actually important enough to keep around.

    A rainbow of 10 colors of the folders, all pastel except for one black
    Amazon

    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! 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 them on Amazon for $7.88 each (available in ten colors).

    10. Or if you need more than four pockets, a cascading file — it collapses for easy transport, then fans out to make each and every folder quick to access.

    The file cascaded to hang on a home office wall; there's a loop for the nail, six file folders, and a clear slot for something like a calendar print-out in the front
    Amazon

    Reviewers love it for their home office or small office, and multiple teachers say they love it for organizing and separating the papers from each of their classes! Note that it fits 8.5x11 papers, but *not* regular-sized manila folders.

    Promising review: "This was a perfect product for organizing my most important papers and business documents, in a way that would be easy to access and still look cute. I love the fact that I can fold it up and grab it and run with it if I need to. Great product, nice and sturdy." —Vanessa Green

    Get it on Amazon for $19.61.

    11. A beanbag cover designed so kiddos can stuff it with all of their less-loved plush toys, turning the omnipresent, messy-looking pile into a comfy place to sit.

    amazon.com

    It comes in two sizes, and the largest fits 110 stuffed animals! Don't worry: it's machine washable in case of any spills. You could also use it as a functional storage spot for those extra pillows and blankets you only pull out once or twice a year.

    Promising review: "This storage chair offers A LOT of room for stuffed animals or pillows/blankets! It’s easy to adjust the animals once zipped up to create a comfortable area to sit on. I wish it was a bit softer material, though it is canvas which will hold up well." —Jennifer L. Fitch

    Get one on Amazon for $25.99+ (two sizes and up to eight colors/patterns available).

    12. A nail polish case that, after you sort through and toss any expired bottles or colors you don't want to keep, will file the ones you actually love into an orderly menu.

    A product photo showing before: a messy pile of lots of nail polish and after: all the nail polish bottles lined up neatly in the case's grid
    Amazon / BuzzFeed

    It holds 48 total bottles, 24 on each side, so you can always find the color you want with a single glance.

    Promising review: "I bought this after trying a makeup style caboodle for polish and looking for many many more. This is better than advertised. Essie, OPI, Pop-Arrazi, Sinful Colors, SH Instadry, SH Triple Shine, SH Xrreme Wear, Wet And Wild, SH Hard as Nails and Cover Girl all fit perfectly in the standard size boxes. My Julep colors fit two in a compartment!

    The first row has adjustable dividers, you can use them to keep odd-shaped bottles or do what I do: use one side for my nail stamper, dotting tools, and the drying drops and the other for foam wedges and nail pens. It looks way neater easily tucked under my vanity instead of the baskets and baskets of polishes I had to hunt through!" —Clouds

    Get one on Amazon for $27.89 (available in two colors).

    13. A hair dryer holder that takes two seconds to use — just plop the dryer in — so you'll actually be motivated to put your dryer away after you're done with it, instead of leaving it laying out on the cabinet. You could even install it on the inside of your bathroom cabinet door, so it's convenient but not out all the time!

    hairdryer sits nose-down in spiral metal holder
    Walmart

    Oh, and it's held up by water-resistant Command Strips, so you don't even have to deal with screws. It works on best smooth surfaces like painted walls, painted/varnished wood, painted cinder block/concrete, tile, metal, glass, etc. 

    Promising review: "Great storage device. Easy to install. Works great for storing my hair dryer on the side of my bathroom cabinet!" —ChairCaner

    Get it from Walmart for $13.70 or Amazon when it's back in stock for $11.70 (or now for $36.26).

    14. A row of cut-up books because it'll disguise your router and other e-clutter without blocking the all-important wifi signal.

    before: a home office with a pile of routers, Amazon Alexas, and other cords next to the computer; after: the same space, except all you see is a row of colorful book spines
    Covogoods / Etsy

    Basically, the spines of the books books are attached but have with all the pages and covers cut out of 'em, except the two covers on the very ends. You can choose the color scheme you want and how many inches long you need it to be, and CovoGoods, a Salt Lake City, Utah-based small business, will make it for you!

    Promising review: "Wonderful!! We spent the past month remodeling our living room, but we didn't account for how AWFUL the cable boxes and modem were going to look on our beautiful new shelves. Saw this, and had to have it! Covogoods not only communicated quickly with me, but were EXTREMELY accommodating in my requests. Turned out exactly how I envisioned it, and dimensions were spot on! No more ugly cable boxes and wires!" —Lindsey Martinez

    Get one from Covogoods on Etsy for $21+ or Amazon Handmade for $29+.

    15. A bamboo monitor stand with two drawers perfect for storing all of the little desk supplies you need somewhere besides your desktop, but still within arm's reach.

    The monitor stand, which is 22 inches long, 10.6 inches deep, and 4.8 inches high; has two drawers, space underneath them for storage, and three slots in the top for organizing
    Amazon

    Ignoring the backward Apple logo (weird choice, Amazon seller): this may also help with your eyestrain and posture, by putting your screen at a more ergonomic height.

    Promising review: "WONDERFUL product. Perfect height for my needs, sturdy construction, and it looks amazing. The drawers are surprisingly deeper than I was expecting, going the full depth of the stand and have enough height for three Xbox One games to lie flat in them. The under-riser space is tall enough and wide enough to fit my keyboard and my Gunnar gaming glasses with a bit of room left over. The cut out for your cups in the near right of the top I found to be a little small, and unless I put very short teacups there, actually interferes with my view of my monitor. Fits my Google Mini perfectly, though! Keep in mind this is NOT a veneer, this is through and through bamboo, so it will be a little heftier. This works for me, but if you've got a desk with a weight limit, it's something to consider. There IS a little cutout for cables in the back of the stand, but I can't comment on how effective it is because of my personal set up. It looks big enough to safely pass at least three HDMI cables and a standard monitor power cable through, though. —Terry B.

    Get it on Amazon for $52.99.

    16. A pack of shoe doublers — the shoes you do decide to keep will take up half the space they would otherwise, freeing up extra shelf you can use for basically anything...including new shoes, of course.

    A reviewer photo showing 11 pairs of shoes fitting on a six-pair shoe rack, because the doublers allow each pair to stack on top of each other
    amazon.com

    As reviewers note, these don't really work for high-heels over two inches tall (one reviewer made it work but you can tell the second heel isn't neatly stacked under the first; it's on its side). But they'll do wonders for the rest of your collection.

    Promising review: "I love to be organized so when I came across the Shoe Slotz product to organize my shoes on the shelves in my closet, I was excited to try them. They were easy to set up and they work great! I still had more shoes that needed to be organized so I immediately ordered another box of 10. My shoe shelves look so organized now and this product solved a problem for me. Shoe Slotz are great and I highly recommend them." —Laurden2

    Get a set of 10 on Amazon for $26.99.

    17. A pack of those ~As Seen on TV~ Wonder Hangers because they take advantage of all the vertical space in your closet, freeing up extra room on your rod so everything's not so jam-packed in there together.

    Target

    You could even use these to help you organize: shirts on two of 'em, skirts on two of 'em, etc. Each one holds up to 30 pounds, and you get 10 in the package!

    Promising review: "I love these hangers! These hangers make my closet look so much more organized. I have so many clothes and this helps me keep them all in the closet!" —LaurieB

    Get them from Target for $14.99.

    18. A set of baskets and clip-on labels to turn into a crap basket system: when you find something abandoned in a spot where it doesn't belong, drop it in that person's crap basket for them to put away later.

    A blogger's photo of four baskets on their home's stairs, one basket per step, each with a different family member's name on it
    sewmanyways.blogspot.com

    This is great for kids who leave stuff all over the house, because if their basket's very full, they can just carry it to their rooms to put things away (then bring it back to the stairs). And you don't have to deal with their clutter! From Sew Many Ways.

    You could also set up a similar system using small basket drawers ($118.49 on Amazon), if you don't have stairs in your home. (Or use the basket system, just stack 'em elsewhere!) No kids but kind of clutter-y yourself? Try this system with a single basket, drop crap in as you find it, and dedicate 10 minutes every day to put stuff away.

    Get a set of two medium-sized baskets that could work for this for $24.99 and a pack of 20 clip-on chalkboard labels (for writing each person's name!) for $14.99, both on Amazon.

    19. A personalized embroidered dog toy bin that may not stop your beloved pup from pulling every toy out onto the living room floor, but will at least give you a cute, neat place to put everything back again once they've crashed for their mid-afternoon nap.

    puppy sits next to white fabric rope-handled bin that says "mishka's toys" in light blue with a blue dog bone
    With Congratulations / Etsy

    Promising review: "The quality is amazing! Can’t believe how perfect it is for the price. I highly recommend getting one of these for your dog, I got a small and it can fit plenty of toys." —Devonne 

    Get it from With Congratulations on Etsy for $19.97+ (available in sizes S-L, 28 embroidery colors, eight fonts, and plain or with one or two names). 

    With Congratulations is a small business based in Gloucester, United Kingdom, that custom embroiders gifts for both people and pets!  

    20. A coupon folio so you can toss the pile of of ads slowly accumulating on one corner of your kitchen counter, and just file away the deals you need for when you need 'em.

    amazon.com

    It comes with 20 pages (which totals 58 pockets), with pages sized to hold different sizes of coupons.

    Promising review: "Bought two of these, one for myself and one for my Mom. We both coupon regularly and would just have envelopes with our coupons. This book makes it so much easier to organize the coupons. It holds quite a few coupons also. It’s small enough to fit inside a medium to large purse. I use sticky flags on the pages of the coupons I’m going to use on that shopping trip so that I can go straight to the coupons I want without flipping through too much. It’s less bulky than the big binders a lot of coupons lets use, I can prop it open on top of my purse in the cart and still have room in the seat area of the cart, it doesn’t get in the way or take up a lot of space. Highly recommend for any couponers looking to organize their stash." —Talitha M

    Get it on Amazon for $6.99.

    21. A set of vacuum storage bags to compress your out-of-season clothes, extra bedding, or any other bulky fabric things you use often enough to keep, but not so often you want 'em taking up space in your tiny linen closet or out all the time.

    A reviewer's before: pile of clothes taking up a huge amount of space and after: everything compressed into four bags, a quarter of the size
    amazon.com

    I use these myself to store coats, blankets, and other bedding, and they work great! I've also used the name brand, and while those work really well too, these are just as good in my opinion. Each order comes with a screw-in pump you can use to suck out the air, or you can use your vacuum — I've tried both ways and both work well! They come in multiple sizes, and you can browse around the set options to get the number and the size varieties that would work for you. The medium's good for t-shirts, the large is good for coats, sweaters, and sheets, and the jumbo is best for things like queen- and king-sized comforters. Although I currently have my entire "linen closet" in one of the jumbo ones! 

    Promising review: "I have so many blankets and linens. I can’t help myself, I love them and my daughter seems to have picked up the habit. We have run out of room in the linen closet. But now we can get twice as many items in the closet. Once all of the air is sucked out they stay that way. After trying many variations in size, I’ve decided that medium bags works best for me. I have purchased the variety pack and there is a use for every size though. The Amazon bags are just as good as the other brands and they cost less. These work with any vacuum cleaner, but they come with a hand pump if you want a work out. And the small bags are good for packing in a suitcase." —Ela

    Get a pack of six (two jumbo, two large, and two medium) on Amazon for $15.79 (available in multiple pack combinations).

    22. A disc keeper so you can reduce the shelf space all those plastic DVD cases take up to just 2.8 inches, while still keeping all your favorite movies protected (and in alphabetical order, if you so choose).

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This also works well for CDs, if you still have 'em laying around — and still listen to them.

    Promising review: "I mean, this thing is HUGE! We got rid of all the dvd cases (OMG THAT WAS SOOOOO HARD! We agonized over doing it, but we're adults now. We don't NEED the cases with the pictures and the inserts and, you know, we need to maximize space and stuff. Just put all your DVDs in this binder and stop being so crazy hung up on the cases! We fell into a bit of a depression after throwing all those cases in the recycle bin. I made two batches of chocolate chip cookies to get us through. We're doing better now, thanks for asking.) and keep our DVDs in this thing. It really does save a bit of space. :)" —T&B

    Get the 128-capacity binder for $13.94, or a bigger 400-capacity binder for $31.25, both on Amazon.

    23. A cutlery tray that holds an entire set of forks, spoons, knives, and salad forks in half the space of a traditional organizer.

    A hand puts a fork away in the cutlery tray; it's deeper than the typical tray; has three deep slots for forks, spoons, and knives, and one divided shallower slot for salad forks and other small utensils
    Amazon

    Well, not exactly half the space; it basically uses more of the vertical inches in your drawer, vs spreading out over the left and right.

    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 from Amazon for $11.99 (also available in a double-wide version for $14.99 and a version for knives for $11.99).

    24. A jewelry armoire disguised as a full-length mirror so your collection stays organized and easy to access but completely out of sight.

    Amazon

    You can either mount it to the wall or hang it over the door, and it comes with a lock, if you want to keep kids out of it!

    Promising review: "Beautiful, sturdy armoire. The one thing people should be aware of: It's not very deep. I primarily bought this armoire for all my bulky bead necklaces, but the doors would not close, so I had to rethink my plans. I have a ton of necklaces, bangles, earrings, etc., so I was able to get them all in here and I really like how visible everything is! I originally wanted to purchase an armoire with drawers, but then you still have to search all the drawers to find what you're looking for. With this, I just open the door and voila! The lights go on as soon as you open the door, which is handy. It is also very low profile and lockable and I must say that it holds a lot." —Eucharia Pieraccini

    Get it on Amazon for $129.99+ (available in six finishes).

    25. A stackable drawer and shelf that makes even the furthest back corners of your under-sink cabinets completely accessible while maximizing every inch of their vertical space.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I initially wanted something that would screw into the bottom of the cabinet, but I'm finding out that I didn't need it. These shelves are sturdy and heavy. They are amazing easy to put together. The drawers slide in and out easily as well. I quadrupled my storage space. I have shelves under a 36-inch vanity. I am able to store tall cleaning products on the top shelf and scrub pads, etc. in the sliding drawer. BTW, one reviewer mentioned how smaller items might fall through the openings. I did run into this issue; however, I came up with a quick fix. For my drawer with smaller items, I just inserted a shoe box top into the drawer — keeps everything neat and prevents smaller items from falling through — problem solved!" —Amazon Customer

    Get one on Amazon for $25.97 (available in chrome and bronze).

    26. 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. You won't have to deal with the haphazard pile of mops, brooms, and dusters falling all over each other the moment you go to grab one ever again.

    A reviewer photo showing the organizer hung on a wall behind a door; it holds a broom, a dust mop, a wet wring-mop, a mini broom and dust pan, a swiffer duster, and the dog's leash
    amazon.com

    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 $14.99.

    27. Some acid-free photo boxes because even if you don't have the time or motivation to put all those developed pre-digital rolls from the into albums, you can at least transfer them to storage that looks nicer (and is more organized) than those old shoeboxes.

    black photo box
    Amazon

    Each of these comes with a stack of 10 index filing cards you can use for a simple labeling system, like separating out each of the year's vacations. And the front metal plate holds a card that makes it easy to label each box by year! 

    Promising review: "I've been carrying boxes and boxes of photos from house to house over decades and finally decided to sort them. A HUGE task with thousands and thousands of pics. These boxes store an amazing amount of photos in a small space. They are sturdy, have various pleasant colors and come with dividers so you can easily find pics by event or in my case, age. Instead of picking a few pics to put in an album, I got to store all my favs and have them easily accessible. And it's archival quality!" —C. Grant

    Get them from Amazon for $10.28+ each (available in nine colors).

    28. And some larger boxes that you can enlist to disguise those technical books or letter-size files that you need to flip through every once in a while, but look like such an eyesore on your bookshelf.

    Stacy / Wayfair, Wayfair

    They're about 13x13, the perfect size for fitting all kinds of things, and they snap together for easy assembly. And they're made from 70% post-consumer-recycled material, which is a win in my book!

    Promising review: "These boxes are so useful and look pretty chic in my office. The lids are fairly loose, but that’s not an issue for me. Great quality for the price!" —Stacy

    Get them from Wayfair for $22.99 each.

    29. A comfortable ottoman because it lets you both prop your feet up after a long day and hide throws, games, books, and more in its handy storage compartment.

    A taupe tufted storage ottoman with tapered legs
    Amazon
