    25 Storage And Organization Products From Target That People Actually Swear By

    Create your own mini before-and-after.

    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 six-cube shelf that can turn any blank stretch of wall into both storage and a spot for display. Between the selection of different bins available to make it work the way you want and all the rooms it could be useful in (entryway, kitchen, laundry room, bedroom, play room...) the possibilities are basically endless.

    Target

    Promising review: "I bought this shelf to store my vinyl record collection. It's built very well — I have it completely full and the shelf did not sag at all, I was very shocked. It was very easy to assemble even though my shelf wasn't packed with instructions. A very sturdy shelf!" —Target Reviewer

    Price: $59.99 (available in four finishes; the same product is also available with two, four, eight, and 16 cubes).

    2. A set of eight interlocking drawer organizers because you can customize their configuration to create your very own stunning before and after for that junk drawer you've eyed for years — and all for less than $10.

    Target

    Promising review: "I finally got around to organizing my messy bathroom dresser drawer, and using two of these sets made a huge difference! The units are very conveniently sized and can be rearranged in a number of configurations. I used the leftover pieces of the second set to organize a smaller drawer, again with very satisfactory results. I'm very happy I bought these, and enthusiastically recommend them." —gale_benson

    Price: $9.89

    3. A set of two expandable drawer dividers to turn that messy dresser drawer into a space that Marie Kondo would applaud — all you have to do is file things away to the right compartment.

    Target

    They fit drawers four inches tall and higher, and expand from 12 to 18 inches long.

    Promising review: "Love it!! One drawer completely redone!! It was ready to go out of the box. All you have to do is squeeze the ends if your drawer is smaller than 18 inches. There are only two dividers in a box so I did a drawer with one box (that's my only downside). I went ahead and ordered two more boxes. A must have for people who have small bedrooms!!" —cassondra94

    Price: $15.99 for two

    4. A utensil organizer with A) designated spots to neatly store even more silverware in the same amount of space and B) an expandable side compartment so it fits the entire width of the drawer, giving you extra storage space *and* preventing the organizer from sliding around.

    Target

    Oh and it's dishwasher safe, so when you notice it getting a little grubby, you don't have to scrub by hand!

    Promising review: "This organizer doesn't move in the drawer and it allows for more flatware storage than any other design. There are also generous compartments for assorted additional space. Very versatile and high quality. It's even easy to clean!" —Lynn

    Price: $17.99

    5. An ottoman with secret storage that, besides giving you a cozy, stylish spot to rest your feet, will hide whatever you need it to: extra blankets for coziness, toys that have basically moved in and tried to overtake your grown-up space, or the pile of books that's your current "to-read" list.

    Target

    Promising review: "It's a terrific ottoman, not huge, but plenty big enough to replace a coffee table. Soft enough to be safe for little ones, but firm enough to rest drinks upon (with a coaster or tray just in case). The storage is a considerable perk, and the hinges appear very sturdy — no slamming shut, either. Great, versatile color, too. A total deal!" —Jenmom

    Price: $49.99 (Also available as a bench in black or brown pleather for $79.99.)

    6. An over-the-cabinet organizer perfect for storing all kinds of things in your kitchen or bathroom: extra sponges and go-to cleaning supplies; foil, plastic wrap, and wax paper; your hair straightener, heat-protectant spray, and hair brush. Oh, and the opposite side is a towel bar, so no functionality is wasted!

    Target

    This goes with for basically all organizing products but: make sure to measure before you buy, so you know it's not too wide for your cabinets.

    Promising review: "I love the modern style of this door organizer! I was really surprised by how high quality the metal was — it feels much more sturdy than the normal organization items I buy. One thing I didn’t really like about it is that I had to clear out the front of the shelf because the organizer takes up space when you close the door. I believe that issue isn’t specific to this item, but any over the door organizers in general. But, it’s something to keep in mind if you’re looking at getting one." —Amygdala

    Price: $14.99

    7. A three-tier wheeled metal cart that's so multifunctional and adds so much extra storage space that you'll find a use for it in the kitchen (as a cute coffee station), the bathroom (it's like extra counter and cabinet space all in one), the garage (*rolls it over to the corner for a project*), the home office/guest room (filing system and bedside table? Yes!). Honestly, the possibilities are limited only by your imagination.

    Target

    It has 4.8(!!) stars with OVER SEVEN HUNDRED reviewers, so you know it's gotta be good. You could also use it as a bar cart, a pantry organizer, for diaper storage, and lots of other things.

    Promising review: "It is perfect for my eight-quart Instant Pot. It fits on the top shelf. I use the middle shelf for accessories and the bottom one houses my Nutribullet Pro. The rolling cart was easy to assemble, is very sturdy, and came with all hardware including the tools needed. I would have paid more for this. Now I can roll the cart in and out of my pantry and leave the IP on the shelf while cooking." —MaryM

    Price: $35 (available in black or grey).

    8. An over-the-door shoe organizer to, yes, make all your favorite footwear easy to access, but *also* to create instant new storage space on the back of pretty much any door. Suddenly your laundry closet also has space for cleaning supplies, your kiddo's door's storing all of their dolls or toy cars, and your pantry has twice as much room for snacks.

    Target

    It has 12 narrow pockets, two double-wide pockets, and one pocket on the bottom that's the width of the full organizer. (That means it can hold over 16 pairs of shoes!) Reviewers also use it for baby onesies and teen bathroom products!

    Promising review: "Great for anyone, especially if you're on a budget. This is a very sturdy, large over the door organizer that has various pocket sizes and holds quite a lot. I use it for various small items from random papers to medicines to chargers and crafts, etc. Very versatile, worth $10 but functions as if it costs more than that." —Marian

    Price: $10 (Or, if that's sold out, check out another highly-rated over-door shoe organizer made from canvas for $17.)

    9. Or a tiered shoe rack shoe rack because whether you stick it in your closet or use it to create a mini mudroom, what once was a mish-mash pile of shoes can become a showroom-like display of all your favorite or most-worn pairs.

    Target

    Promising reviews (for the four-tier shelf): "This is the perfect shoe rack to put by the door. Each shelf holds about three pairs of shoes, and the top is perfect to put a basket to hold keys, sunglasses, and other things you might need as you run out the door!" —Maria

    "Excellent quality for the price! I love it — I don't feel like I need to hide it because it's ugly. I'm using it for my sneakers, flats and flip flops. I'm not sure how practical it would be for heels, especially thinner heels — they may slide through the metal. I love the flat top, I can store things on it and since I currently have the rack in front of my window, my cats like to use it as a window perch as well." —Steph

    Price: $34.99 for the three-tier and $39.99 for the four-tier

    10. A large toy storage bin that's perfect for hiding away a clutter of dolls, stuffed animals, toy cars, and more, so it's quick and easy to get your kiddo's space into ship-shape. (No promises you can get them to do it by themselves, though!)

    Target

    Promising reviews: "This bin is a lot sturdier than I thought it would be with a lot of storage space. I haven’t found anything else like it, it’s great that it can be folded up for storage as well." —Hanna

    "Works great for our toddler's toy storage. Ordered two based on all the positive reviews of others and was not disappointed! Looks great and has held up to all the climbing so far." —toddlermom

    Price: $29.99 (available in three colors)

    11. A super sturdy sheet pan and cutting board organizer so you can simply file them away separately, and easily slide out exactly what you need the moment you need it. It's made of heavy-duty coated metal, so it won't budge an inch or even threaten to scratch your pans.

    Target

    It's *so* heavy duty that a couple of reviewers even turned it on its side, and used it to stack each of their cast-iron skillets of varying sizes!

    Promising review: "LOVE this thing. I was going to ask my husband to try custom making dividers in our cabinets to stack our cutting boards upright. I had also been keeping an eye out for any mechanism that would achieve this, but without much success. This thing does the trick perfectly. Sturdy, so it doesn’t move around." —Hayley

    Price: $14

    12. An airtight food storage set because they keep pantry staples fresh for longer than the original packaging ever possibly could and they'll make everything easy to find — that's money + time saved.

    Target, Rebecca O'Connell / BuzzFeed

    They're designed to be incredibly efficient with the space on your shelves, the rounded corners make for easy pouring, and you press the button on top to open and seal the containers.

    Promising review: "These are the best; I use them for everything because they save money and keep food longer. They're great for families who eat at home a lot and don't like to waste food (like with kids — and other people — leaving bags open). They also help keep everything organized and looking great in the pantry!" —Target Reviewer

    Price: Get individual containers for $12.99+ or a set of five containers for $49.99.

    13. A five-tier pants hanger because it'll free up several precious inches of closet rod space while still keeping all your favorite leggings, jeans, and slacks easily accessible.

    Target

    Want the pair that's the third from the bottom? Simply lift up its hanger on the left side, and swing it open. And voila! You can finish getting dressed *and* didn't ruin your lovely organization scheme.

    Promising review: "Fantastic pants hanger for those who have a small closet and a lot of pants...I use these specifically for my dress pants and those that are "wrinkle-prone". Slip your pants on and off easily and it's a space-saver since you can hang up to five pairs on one hanger. Fantastic quality and aesthetic — these really got me into my closet-cleaning groove." —taylorn

    Price: $7

    14. And a pack of slimline hangers so you can create *even more* wiggle room in your closet without having to make any decisions about what to keep or donate.

    Target

    They're like, a fraction of the width of wood or your more traditional plastic hangers. I use similar hangers in my tiny NYC closet and can fit a TON of clothes with no problem!

    Promising reviews: "These are EXCELLENT. They save so much room in the closet, and none of my clothes fall off them. Also, they don't cause a bump mark in the fabric (of sweaters, for instance). Thanks for these!" —ItsHotInDallas

    Price: $5 for 10 hangers (available in three colors)

    15. A pack of Command mop and broom grippers so you can finally get all your mops, Swiffers, and even things like baseball bats out of their tumbled pile in the corner, and turn any blank space of wall or even your laundry room door into a well-organized broom closet.

    Target

    Reviewers have even used them for hair brushes and lighter shovels! And yes, these are hung up with Command Strips, which means they're completely removable (and leave no damage behind) if you follow the directions!

    Promising review: "These work really well. I have my Swiffer Wet Jet being held by one. It fits and holds it perfectly. The other one is holding my broom and long handle dustpan that has a smaller diameter pole. Since my dust pan is attached to the broom, and since it’s a smaller size, it slides down some. But still works for me. Sticks to my wall well!" —Pattyfrompittsburgh

    Price: $11.99 for two grippers and four strips

    16. An expandable storage shelf (that many reviewers use for cans in the pantry) because it'll fit the exact width of your cabinet or shelf space and make it easy to see everything you have *without* having to dig for it.

    Target

    Some reviewers also use it for their spices, but it's sized to work best for cans or mason jars (or craft supplies and bathroom products!).

    Promising reviews: "Love love love this spice organizer. Will be buying another for my cans. Really good quality and feels like it would cost more for the price (not that I'm complaining). Good buy!" —Happymamma

    "I was pleasantly surprised by this shelf. Originally I thought it'd just be for spices and small cans, but then as I was setting it up, I found out that it holds the bigger (wider) cans as well. The anti-slip is great, I don't have to worry about things sliding. The only downside is the spot where it expands, it's a small height difference so your items need to be lined up. Tl;dr: holds cans of all sizes well, they won't slip around." —Amber C

    Price: $12.99

    17. An elegant countertop makeup organizer because it'll keep all the products you use every single day looking perfectly neat and right at arm's reach. You won't spend any time on a regular morning digging through your bigger collection (which, you love for other reasons but don't always need!), saving you at least five minutes of time in the mornings.

    Target

    Promising review: "I think this is great for the value! I was thinking I was possibly going to get some on the cheaper side, but not at all: this is made of thick acrylic, has weight to it, and looks really nice. I got rid of three(!) other storage containers and was able to combine everything into one — now I have more room and it looks super nice and clean." —Naniki007

    Price: $12.99

    18. An eight-tier adjustable wire rack that you can either hang over the door or mount to your door or wall to magically create extra storage basically anywhere you need it, whether it's the kitchen/pantry, bathroom, laundry room, or even your closet.

    Target

    One reviewer mentions that if you want or need to for your space, you can separate the single organizer into two or three different smaller sections!

    Promising review: "Excellent price. Almost purchased something similar that costs three times as much. Glad I saw this at my local Target. Love the adjustable shelves and the two different depths. Takes some getting used to opening the door because of the added weight, but I have no complaints. If you need extra space in your pantry or other shelves, try this out." —cakebreak

    Price: $35.99

    19. A six-shelf hanging closet organizer to turn 14 inches of rod space — which would only store approximately seven or eight sweaters or pairs of hanging jeans — into usable space to store at least twice as many, if you fold 'em.

    Target

    And it has s-hooks every other cube on the outside, in case you wanted to stash your bags, belts, or something else there.

    Promising review: "I really like this entire storage system line. They look for chic, seem to be of very nice quality, and they were all very affordable. This particular piece seems to be very sturdy. I'm using it to hold folded jeans, some boots, and lots of scarves. I love that it has places to hang things off the side like additional bags or belts. I hope Target expands the line to offer other colors in the future, but the gray does look wonderful! Highly recommend." — kfletcher

    Price: $17 (Get the pictured hamper insert for $15 or see the rest of the closet storage collection from Target.)

    20. A wire basket that's specifically sized to sit on the top of a toilet tank and keep any reading material and (naturally) extra TP looking sharp.

    Target

    Reviewers also use them to organize deep shelves, or for kid's homeschool supplies!

    Promising review: "Excellent! Well-made and aesthetically pleasing. This makes a beautiful tank-topper for toilet paper in the bathroom! Highly recommended!" —Linnea

    Price: $12.99 (also available three other sizes; find them under the "frequently bought together" section).

    21. A bin with built-in wheels so you can actually easily use and access even the furthest back corners of your under-sink cabinet (or of the top of your fridge, or under a bed, or...) — simply roll it forward and grab what you need, no installation or assembly required.

    Target

    Promising review: "I've been keeping my 'under the kitchen sink' cleaning stuff in a cardboard box for...I'm embarrassed to admit...five years now. When I got this organizer, I knew exactly where to put it. Everything fits in there perfectly and I can see at a glance what I'm searching for instead of having to root through a big jumble. it's sturdy (don't have to worry about anything soaking through) and the just the right size. I'm thinking I might get one for under the bathroom sink as well. A good value." —Lupinibean

    Price: $7.99

    22. A spacious outdoor storage bench because it will keep everything you stash in it nice and dry on rainy days, all while doubling up as a place for extra seating.

    Target

    Promising review: "I bought this for our lake house to store the many patio cushions we were dragging in the house at the end of every weekend. We put it together in about 20 minutes and the directions were very easy to follow. It rather large but just what I needed. It's sturdy and I was pleased the cushions were all dry after a few days of rain. I did some shopping online and this was the best price I found. We are very happy with our purchase." —Jacmoe

    Price: $129.99

    23. A set of super transparent, shatter-resistant, leak-proof, air-tight leftover and lunch containers so your leftover or meal prep game becomes a true work of art (and your soup or salad dressing never ends up seeping anywhere it's unwelcome).

    Rubbermaid, Yi Yang / BuzzFeed

    These heavy-duty plastic containers are microwave-, freezer-, and dishwasher-safe. They even have little vents you can open so you can microwave them with the lid on, preventing splatters!

    Promising review: "The best of the plastic stuff! They are not breakable like glass and the sealing mechanism is really good so the container doesn't spill in my bag. Also if you flip the gray clasps up, there are venting holes for microwaving. They also do a great job resisting stains. I've stored spaghetti sauce, chili, stew, and all other stuff that used to stain the cheaper, thinner plastics. It doesn't stain these. Storage: There are squared off nicely and the tops are smooth and flat so you can stack other stuff on top in the fridge. Storing in the drawer is difficult. The lids don't really nest in any way." —Macadamia Island

    Price: $15.29 for the pictured set of one large, two medium, and two small containers.

    And we stan these because we use them! For more, read our full Rubbermaid Brilliance Containers review.

    24. A giant and semi-transparent Ziploc zipper tote perfect for protecting your off-season clothes when you stash 'em away under your bed or in the top of the closet, but that's also strong and durable enough that it can hold up to everyday use, too.

    Ziploc

    Not to worry, it also has built-in handles for easy carrying even when it's full, and a strip of venting so your fabrics can breathe!

    Promising review: "I really love these bags. I purchased several to store blankets and pillows. I really hate to see a messy linen closet and I love how all the bags make it look neat and organized. Also, it keeps everything dust free and all my blankets should be ready to go when winter arrives. They also have nice handles on the side, are made of surprisingly thick plastic and the zipper works nicely. I also use the XXL size to store my winter clothes." —Gigi

    Price: $7.39+ (available in two sizes; two XLs fit in one XXL)

    25. An in-cabinet shelf to help you take advantage of any wasted ~vertical space~, doubling the storage capacity of pretty much whichever spot you put it in! Built-in shelves, even if they're adjustable, sometimes are just too far apart; these let you "stack", for example, your bowls over your plates *without* you having to remove all your bowls every time you want a plate.

    Target

    Promising reviews: "Sturdy and practical solution for kitchen storage. I purchased two of these for storage of heavy glass baking and mixing dishes. They doubled the storage space and really got me organized. I can store both on top and below of each. Highly recommend." —pacificmom

    "This small shelf is perfect for smaller places and best of all it works on a wire pantry shelf. I bought it for a small place under the sink but switched it to the pantry so I will be buying more." —Verna

    Price: $8.99
