    Storage maximizers to help you live clutter-free.

Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A 36-pair over-door shoe rack to quickly turn the mess on your closet floor into a neatly stacked, easy to navigate–display.


    If you have boots or taller shoes, the bars can fold up to accommodate them.

    Promising review: "This shoe rack is great because it doesn’t take up floor space, it’s hidden behind a door (great for minimalists), and it’s easy to use. Between my husband and I, we were able to fit 27 pairs of shoes. Some of my husband’s shoes are bulky and heavy, but they fit perfectly into the rack and the metal bars hold up really well. And, an added bonus is we now have room for storage in our coat closet to make better usage of our space!" —Jess C

    Get it on Amazon for $26.27.

    2. Or, if you store your shoes on shelves, a set of six space-savers that literally let you double up each pair so you can fit twice as many in exactly the same space.


    But still see each and every shoe you have at your disposal. Note that they don't work on heels much higher than three inches.

    Promising review: "Just bought a six pack of these and immediately ordered two more six packs. I saw these on a BuzzFeed closet organization list and had to try them out. The plastic is flexible (to accommodate higher heeled shoes) but still nice quality. I have a shelf along the length of my closet where I put my shoes. My shoes usually get buried under the hem of my dresses so these are nice because I can pull the entire "slot" out and put it back just as easily. Love them!" —Kaitlin Miller

    Get the pack of six on Amazon for $17.99.

    3. A spice rack so you no longer have to lead search-and-rescue through a cabinet of random spices looking for the coriander — just pull out the right drawer, and it's at your fingertips.


    It fits up to 30 bottles, and many reviewers label the front of each drawer with the spices it contains. You could also use it to organize other things, too, like individual eyeshadows.

    Promising review: "Actually as advertised. And it easily fits both round and square spice containers. Not only that, but it really boosts your ego for having the forethought to buy something that will make you look like the rest of your life is just as well organized. (In my case, not true, but you'd think so if even my spices are organized so well.) It is very easy to clean, too." —Dreagon

    Get one on Amazon for $41.32.

    4. An over-door jewelry cabinet that doubles as a mirror, for stashing away your collection as if it's a display in a boutique.


    You can also mount it to the wall, if you prefer. Plus it ~locks~ so kids can't get into it!

    Promising review: "Beautiful, sturdy armoire. One thing that people should be aware of: It is 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 $121.99.

    5. A stackable, customizable cube storage unit with doors to hide away 16 whole cubbies worth of stuff.


    Get it on Amazon for $69.99.

    6. A rotating makeup organizer that makes every item in your collection orderly and easy to find, even after you've packed every last inch of it full.


    It's perfect to either keep out on your counter or tuck in a closet or cabinet — whatever works best in your bathroom.

    Promising review: "So far so good! This was super easy to assemble and held almost everything I needed it too. My makeup, skin, and hair care products. Easily freed up 50% of the space I was previously using." —Cynthia Downs

    Get it on Amazon for $20.99.

    7. A nail polish box for laying out your 48-bottle collection like it's the menu at the salon, making it *much* easier to pick the color you want to use.


    All the slots are actually big enough to fit a wide range of polishes — reviewers say they fit China Glaze, OPI, ILNP, Sally Hansen, Essie, and others. Some of the slots are adjustable, too, if you want to store clippers, files, and other tools along with your polish. And when you're all done, you can easily slide it away into a cabinet.

    Promising review: "It fits my polish perfectly. I was able to adjust some slots for the hard to fit–bottles, and I can keep them all standing on end which is said to be better for your polish than laying on it's side. I was worried that having the weight of all the polish would make the door fall open and polish spill out, but that is not the case at all. This is well made and very handy. I actually love the clear case more as I can see the true colors of my polish a lot better." —Mama Bear

    Get it on Amazon for $24.99 (available in clear and clear-pink).

    8. 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 $9.99 (also available for knives; two colors).

    9. A photo album with a little spot to write captions so you can finally get all those pre digital camera–pics out of boxes and into a home they deserve.


    It holds 200 photos, has a hard-back fabric cover, and comes in 26 colors.

    Promising review: "I've been buying this same type of fabric photo album from Pioneer for the 11 years my husband and I have been married. We use a different color each time. The albums have held up so well, and I love the small caption writing space this album has next to the pics. Any dust is easily wiped off without leaving a mark on the fabric." —Lo Frenzel

    Get it on Amazon for $15.48+. Or if you're looking for a bigger album, there's a pack of two binder-style albums that hold 500 photos each for $25.54.

    10. A disc case that will consolidate your entire collection of video games, DVDs, and/or CDs so they take up just a fraction of their original shelf space.,

    Also works for Blu-Rays, obvs.

    Promising review: "Love this. Exactly as expected. The pages are sewn in, which makes it easy to flip the pages, especially when loaded full of DVDs. Fits the DVDs perfectly. They load from the top (not the side like some), so they do not slide out while you are flipping the pages. Also has zipper that zips up three sides to fully enclose it." —Lexi L.

    The fabric is heavy duty, does not look flimsy, and is easy to clean.

    Get the 400-disc-capacity binder (pictured) for $26.51, or a smaller 128-disc-capacity binder for $13, both on Amazon.

    11. A set of two stuffed animal hammocks to give all your kid's best friends a place to hang out besides the floor of your open-plan living area.

    Each net comes with a set of four screw-in hooks you can use to hang it, but many reviewers have success with Command Hooks, too.

    Promising review: "My kids have more stuffed animals than they know what to do with, and I needed a way to store them so that they didn't clutter up their rooms. These nets are pretty huge and can hold a large number of toys. They were reasonably easy to install in the corners of their bedrooms, and when we're ready to take them down (when they go to college?) the holes won't be excessively large." —Heather

    Get the set of two nets on Amazon for $7.99+ (available in three colors).

    12. Or a soft and fuzzy stuffed animal bean bag chair that hides them away in a cozy little seat.


    Just stuff 'em in and zip!

    Promising review: "My daughter has over 40 stuffed animals and this thing holds ALL of them! It keeps everything off of the floor and I even stuffed a heavy comforter in there to free up drawer space. I packed this thing and haven't had any issues with the zipper at all." —Chelsea

    Get one on Amazon for $29.97 (four colors).

    13. A pack of four space-saving hangers — they can fit about 20 shirts in four-shirts-worth of closet rod space, for a total transformation.


    Every time you go to pick up a shirt, you'd just hook the second end of the hanger to your rod, pick your shirt, then unhook one end again.

    Promising review: "My husband and I used to compete for closet space, but not any more. These hangers have opened up so much more usable space. I guess that means I can buy more clothes, right?" —ChildreanTeachingMama

    Get the pack of four on Amazon for $19.99 (five colors/finishes).

    14. 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 $11.98.

    15. A four-bag, rolling laundry sorter because having lots of clothes usually means you have lots of laundry, too...and this will help you keep it perfectly sorted.


    Whether you separate by load or by person, this multifunctional sorter will take (some) of the drudgery out of laundry day.

    Promising review: "The separate bins help me keep each kid's laundry separate so laundry duty is a little easier. I wrote each kid's name on the front of each compartment with fabric paint, and voila! Instant laundry system. I like that each bag comes out for easy transport to the laundry room, and the bags are big enough to fit several days' worth of clothing. It's pretty easy to assemble." —Primemama

    Get it on Amazon for $38.99 (available in three colors).

    16. A set of two tie hangers so you can see your entire collection in one glance. You can easily repurpose them as a tank-top or bra sorter, too!,

    Promising review: "These things are basically the best thing to ever happen for any lightweight clothing. I use these to hold all my tank tops and camis and they work wonderfully. It's like a Lazy Susan for my clothes. It's awesome." —Joslynn Manos

    Get the set of two on Amazon for $7.99.

    17. A drawer organizing set to make the most of every single inch of space and keep everything looking nice and neat.


    Promising review: "Worth it. Strong compartments, sturdy, great subtle color for an organizer. I really like the options with this set. We purchased several and they fit in all of our drawers from adult to kids. Taller than most dividers, but fit in really nicely." —WorthItorNotWorthIt

    Get the set of four bins for $14.87 on Amazon.

    18. A set of six refrigerator bins — they give all your groceries and condiments a designated place, so you can keep all your favorite salad dressings around but never have to dig for a specific flavor.


    The pack of six includes an egg holder, a 12-drink can dispenser tray, two trays 8.25" wide (the yogurt and fruit punch trays in the picture), and two trays 3.5" wide (the clementines and condiment trays in the picture). All the trays are about 14 inches deep, and 3–4 inches high.

    Promising review: "I bought them to try so solve the clutter mess in the fridge and so far it has been awesome! Now we respect the space for every kind of item. P.S. The plastic material is really durable and resistant which is a plus." —Erika Shelton

    Get the set on Amazon for $28.99.

    19. A package of six vacuum storage bags to collapse all your extra pillows, linens, comforters, and clothes you neither want to give away nor let take up so much space.


    I've used these many times, and they really do double (or more than double) your available storage space! All you need is a vacuum with a hose. You get two medium, two large, and two jumbo bags as part of this pack.

    Promising review: "It’s amazing how much these bags compress. Plus you can see what’s in them without opening multiple bins. I packed RV bedding (pillows/comforter) in one jumbo bag. They are great for travel, too, just compress wrinkle free items prior to placing in suitcase." —Mary

    Get a variety pack of six on Amazon for $26.99.

    20. A fabric file box and colorful hanging file folders to help you stop spending hours of your life searching for important papers.


    It turns out that, apparently, a shoe box isn't the best place to store all your old tax documents.

    Get the file box for $24.96 and a 25-pack of the files for $9.99, both on Amazon.

    21. A slim coupon wallet because you like to save money but *don't* like taking forever at every checkout line because you can't find one specific clipping.,

    This comes with little plastic dividers and both pre-printed and blank sticker labels, so you can customize it to however you like to shop. It also has a velcro strap that loops around the cart handle, so it's always at your fingertips.

    Promising review: "So nice to take my well-organized coupons along with me to the grocery and other stores. Velcro holds the center closed securely even with many coupons inside. Nice to have a good selection of preprinted labels ready to stick to the small tabbed plastic dividers. The fabric is holding up well so far." —LindayLou

    Get it on Amazon for $16.95 (two colors).

    22. A set of two jumbo under-bed bags for maximizing every last little inch of storage space you have available.


    Because they're partially made of fabric, they'll let your linens or clothes breathe, unlike traditional plastic bins.

    Promising review: "So - the size is perfect and it will serve the purpose I wanted (storing some old blankets both under a bed and along the top of a closet, protected from dust) quite well. I assumed it might have some kind of collapsible bracing (for lack of a better term) on the inside, but no, it's simply held in place by the contents you put inside. Not an issue for my purposes, but worth noting that you shouldn't expect/require rigidity." —theIntrovertedObserver

    Get the set on Amazon for $12.99.

    23. Or a storage bed frame and headboard you can easily lift up to access a wealth of empty space without having to get on the floor and pull everything out.


    If I did the math right, that gives you around 110 cubic feet of storage space with the full size — that's more four refrigerators worth.

    Promising review: "We have a 14 inch mattress–on it so you don't see much of the headboard once the pillows are on the bed. I was worried that the lift mechanism might not work or not work well but once it was all put together it is perfect. My daughter is extremely happy with her beautiful new bed and I'm thrilled that we have that storage space now. Looks and feels very high quality." —Justine Grayson

    Get it on Amazon for $416.27 (also available in grey linen, and sizes full or queen).

    24. A double-sided hanging gift wrap organizer because even though you only use wrapping paper and bows on special occasions, you want them to be easy to access when you need it.


    Promising review: "This product is kind of like a Mary Poppins purse...At first glance you think there is no way it will be able to fit everything, but then you quickly become amazed at everything it holds. I’ve managed to fit all of my gift bags — probably 25+ — although only about seven rolls of wrapping paper (four on one side, and three on the other). You could fit probably four or five on each if they were all small rolls. Overall, I’m extremely happy! It’s nice to have everything organized in a way that you’re able to see everything." —ELB

    Get it on Amazon for $17.99.

    25. An overhead storage rack so you can use all the vertical space in your garage — and finally park your car in there again, too.


    Promising review: "If you're wanting storage for your garage and have 10-foot ceilings this is the ticket. Installation is involved but I was able to do it as a one man job. It took me a whole day but I was particular about it's position and considered the constraints of surrounding space and aesthetics. This holds a total of sixteen 18 gallon totes... sixteen!!! It occupies otherwise unused space, standard shelving occupies valuable floor space. Keep your garage clean and organized, this is absolutely worth the money." —Amazon Customer

    Get one on Amazon for $179.99 (black or white; expert setup available for an additional $131.09).

    26. A corner tool rack for your garage because you're tired of tripping over the rake every time you head to the driver's seat.


    It can hold 30 different tools and can be easily anchored to the wall (which, if you load it up with a bunch of heavy tools, is probably a good idea).

    Promising review: "A great addition to organize your shed/garage. After always just leaning all my rakes, shovels, brooms, etc., in the corner of the shed, and having half of them fall down when I yanked out of the pile, this thing is awesome. Fits right in the corner, has a few different size holes to accommodate various tools, a must-have for your yard tools and fishing poles." —Brandon

    Get it on Amazon for $24.74.

    27. A sports equipment organizer because all of that stuff needs some place to live, and this makes it easy to store and, y'know, actually use on a regular (even daily!) basis., Amazon

    Some reviewers talk about how it doesn't feel too sturdy, but others mention that once it's on the wall, it's perfectly stable.

    Promising review: "I needed something to store some of the kids stuff off the garage floor with easy access. It isn't really sturdy and I was worried while putting it together and hanging it up. I hung it up myself without the help of my husband so that's pretty simple to do. It stores quite a bit. I did explain to the kids NOT to pull on it when getting stuff down because I'm afraid it would break, but so far so good. It even hangs my daughters softball bag with helmet, bat and glove which is somewhat heavy for the rack." —Chris Roberts

    Get it on Amazon for $30.99.

    28. A sturdy rolling cart that turns narrow gaps in your house into useful storage space — for detergent in the space between your washer/dryer, for pantry items between your fridge and cabinets, and yes, for bathroom products between your sink and wall.


    Some reviewers even buy two racks and stack 'em.

    Promising review: "This was exactly what I needed for the gap space that I had between my dishwasher and the wall. It fits so perfectly that I was shocked it didn't come with the house. Even though it's narrow, it has added a lot of space, would recommend." —NutriRD

    Get it on Amazon for $29.99+ (also available with five tiers; a white version's available but only with five tiers, although you could assemble it as a three-tier).

    29. A sectioned purse organizer made to lift out of one purse and into another one, so you always know exactly where to find your wallet and changing purses becomes significantly less of a hassle.


    Promising review: "I love my bag (basically it's a large open sack). While it has pockets on the outside, the inside has just one pocket on one side and two holders on the other side. So all my stuff is thrown in the middle. And I carry A LOT! This little holder holds a A LOT without adding any weight to my bag. I also like that it has two zipper compartments so I can put personal stuff in there without everyone seeing it every time I open the bag. The length of my bag is 16" and this thing fits comfortably in it. Seriously, for an extra $10 I now enjoy using my $250+ bag!" —michelmoba

    It comes in three sizes and 26 colors/patterns; get it on Amazon for $8.99+.

    Now only if you could get your closet to do THIS, you'd be completely set!
