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

    before: pants packed into a closet on individual hangers; after: five pants layered to a hanger with room to spare

    Promising review: "Perfect! These work great to hold my husband's work pants. They hold a lot of weight and keep all the pants wrinkle- and crease-free." โ€”Alexis

    Get the three-pack on Amazon for $14.75.

    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 wasnโ€™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." โ€”Nikolette

    Get it on Amazon for $9.97.

    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.)" โ€”Marilyn

    Get it on Amazon for $11.99.

    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.


    You get two large square organizers (one divided into six horizontal bra-storage compartments, the other into a grid of 24 compartments) and two half-size rectangle organizers (one divided into six horizontal scarf- or underwear- sized compartments, the other into a grid of eight compartments).

    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!" โ€”Elizabeth L Blackwell

    Get the set of four on Amazon for $15.97 (available in seven colors).

    5. An over-the-cabinet door basket so useful, you'll want to buy two โ€” 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. Of course, when it comes to all organizing products, always measure before you buy!

    Promising review: "This is so easy to set up and I love the space it gives me. It holds several of my lids and cutting boards. It makes it so easy to grab things right off the cabinet door and you don't have to bend or have lids and stuff rolling around your cabinets." โ€”Megen Bomely

    Get it on Amazon for $14.97.

    6. A pastel expanding folio โ€” 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., 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 โ€” 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." โ€”Alexa Viz

    Get one on Amazon for $9.58.

    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.

    hand putting fork away in organizer, which takes up the full vertical height of the drawer

    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!" โ€”mialro

    Get it on Amazon for $7.49+ (available in two sizes, for knives, and in three colors).

    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.

    Reviewer's four-shelf rack with 20 pairs of shoes lined up on it

    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! 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." โ€”B. Bauerle

    Get it from Amazon for $31.56.

    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 โ€” 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." โ€”carolyn aversano

    Get it on Amazon for $32.95+ (available in four colors).

    10. A six-pocket mesh shower organizer you hang on your existing curtain rings for seamless storage โ€” 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." โ€”Nina Messer

    Get it on Amazon for $8.99 (available in three 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.)" โ€”Brad J. Leahy

    Get it on Amazon for $25.97.

    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 your 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." โ€”jay money

    Get a set of three on Amazon for $22.47.

    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.

    six-compartment open clear organizer, with taller options in back

    Promising review: "Love love love this product. Holds everything I have and then some. It even holds my big eyeshadow palette perfectly. I filled this container with all my make up including; primer, color correct stick, foundation, concealer, bronzer, three eye shadow palettes, highlighter, eyeliner, mascara, setting spray, setting powder, liquid lip, and lip gloss. I will say it doesn't have room for my brushes but I had already bough a special brush holder so it wasn't a problem for me." โ€”Katlin H

    Get it on Amazon for $14.99.

    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.

    clear organizer with three drawers and lipstick and other storage on top

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

    Promising review: "LOVE this product! It comes in two separate pieces but the top fits perfectly on top of the drawers. It's a great size, and fits allllmost all of my makeup. Great for people who are starting out their makeup collection, because you can really fit a lot of products in the drawers. Fits great on bathroom counters, dressers, or a makeup counter! I definitely would recommend this product. It was carefully wrapped and packaged too." โ€”Jess Russo

    Get it from Amazon for $16.35+ (available in five colors).

    AnaMaria, an editor here at Buzzfeed, owns this and say's it's 100% legit! Check out her full makeup organizer review.

    15. A pot-and-pan rack with multiple uses: let it stack your most-used cookware horizontally or vertically, then buy a second one to neatly store your baking sheets, casserole pans, and pie dishes.,

    Promising review: "I was skeptical about racks resigned like this due to the large heavy pans I own but this rack held them up like a champ! I tried the different ways the rack can be adjusted to hold my pans and found that standing the rack up is the most efficient and space saving position. The pans I placed in the rack are three 12 in pans and one 11 in pan. Love it!" โ€”Ya Juan Zhao

    Get it from Amazon for $16.47.

    16. 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.

    organizer hung behind reviewer's door; holding three brooms and mops plus dog's leash and duster on the hooks

    It has five slots for hanging handled items like brooms and mops, and five hooks for smaller things, like your duster.

    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 โ€” 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." โ€”Shellybeenz

    Get it on Amazon for $13.99.

    17. 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.

    brown caddy with pocket for letters and five hooks for keys

    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." โ€”FishyBirdMLS

    Get it on Amazon for $10.99 (available in six colors).

    18. Or a full-size hall tree because it will turn that blank stretch of wall by your backdoor into a very cute miniature mudroom, no lengthy (and pricey) renovation required.

    reviewer's hallway with the white tree holding kids backpacks on three of the four hooks

    It has a convenient bench for you to plop down on when you're putting on or taking off your shoes, a big storage area for those shoes (behind the door that looks like a drawer), two cubbies for whatever you need, a top shelf for decorative items (or more storage), and four hooks for coats, backpacks, purses, and of course those school projects your kids can NOT forget in the morning. Of course as with all furniture, remember to measure before you buy!

    Promising review: "I love that the bottom sits on the floor with no gap for dust and items to collect underneath. The quality of the product is very good with latches to ensure tight fits during assembly. It took my husband and six-year-old about an hour to put together with little difficulty. The bottom storage area opens downward on a hinge which is a nice feature with two cubbies perfect for each child's shoes. Love the hooks for backpacks and the seat to put on your shoes. Very useful item I wished we had purchased years ago!" โ€”Nicole

    Get it on Amazon for $286.99.

    19. Personalized mask hooks so no matter your by-the-door setup, everyone can always find a clean one they actually want to wear, no more hunting down your personal zipper bag at the last minute.

    Promising review: "Absolutely gorgeous mask holder! Loved the color and the 3D mask letters! Thank you!" โ€”Jackie Chan

    Get one from Woodson Gale Interiors on Etsy for $12+ (available in four finishes and with or without names, and with between two and six hooks).

    20. 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. :)" โ€”Alyssa Jewell

    Get it on Amazon for $18.99 (available in five colors).

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

    plastic organizer hanging flat against a wall with six different removeable interior file 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." โ€”Vanessa Green

    Get it on Amazon for $10.30+ (available in three colors).

    22. Or a plastic file box, if you need significantly more paper storage space and want to overhaul the messy pile of papers you've been stuffing in that one desk drawer (you know the one) for far too long. Now you'll actually be able to find what you're looking for without having to shuffle through the giant stack!

    Office Depot

    It fits letter-size hanging folders (and paper), and you can even buy a lock for it if you had like, all your tax info in there. Oh, and see the little clear piece on top of the lid? That's a little storage compartment where you can stash pens, paper clips, or whatever else you need. You do have to buy the hanging file folders separately!

    Promising review: "Just what I needed, Iโ€™m so happy I bought this file box! I had no idea when I started working from home during the pandemic that I would need something handy like this to keep files and paperwork organized at armโ€™s reach once I set up my makeshift home office. This is a great product." โ€”CC Social Worker

    Get it from Office Depot for $15.19.

    23. A gift wrap organizer because it's the perfect way to stash all the leftover paper from the holidays to save for next year. It holds rolls up to 40 inches long!

    Reviewer's rectangular bag holding eight rolls of wrapping paper with a triangle shelf for bows

    Plus it has plenty of space for stacking rolls or bags, and two pockets in the inside of the lid perfect for tissue paper.

    Promising review: "This wrapping paper organizer is amazing. I bought this to replace a hanging one I had that was no longer up to the job. The extra large gift bags fit into the main compartment well, and the sleeves on the lid are the perfect size to store tissue paper without having to fold it in half. I have tons of room remaining in the organizer and could easily store double the rolls I have now, plus more bows and tissue paper. The organizer is nice and sturdy once you put in the bottom support, and the zippers seem like they will hold up well to multiple zippings and unzippings." โ€”monniewolf

    Get it on Amazon for $31.93 (available in two colors).

    24. A lift-top tufted storage ottoman that's lined with pockets so whether you plan keep it in the living room for your kids toys or want it in your bedroom for the convenient extra shoe storage space, everything declutters on the double and stays super organized.

    Promising review: "I love this shoe storage. It"s a bench and shoe storage in one and looks beautiful. Very easy to assemble and it was delivered to me in just a few days. Very happy!" โ€”Adriana

    Get it from Ashely Home Store for $158.99 (available in two colors) .

    25. 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.

    larger clear bins holding juice boxes and fruit; narrower bins holding condiments and grapes; egg bin, and soda bin

    It comes with two larger bins, two narrower bins, an egg bin, and a canned drinks bin.

    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 โ€” skinny tray for husbandโ€™s freezer burritos, bigger one for his other 'freezer lunches.' So far, no cracks, easy slide, sturdy, easy clean." โ€”S. Lee

    Get the set on Amazon for $30.

    26. An over-the-door rack that's like instantly conjuring extra pantry or bathroom storage space out of nowhere the moment you hang it up. Oh, and you can easily adjust where the shelves sit on the door so anytime you need to customize it, you can.

    eight-shelf wire rack on the back of a bathroom door, storing all sorts of soaps, sponges, and more

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

    Promising review: "Weโ€™ve purchased three of them โ€” two are inside closet doors, and one was mounted to the wall next to the laundry. Theyโ€™re easy to put together, easy to install, and hold a lot! I love the flexibility to move the bins and rods around." โ€”Jen

    Get it from Target for $33.99.

    27. A stackable can rack โ€” 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.

    Reviewer's pantry with two of the metal wire racks, which are full of cans

    It holds up to 36 cans without batting an eye.

    Promising review: "These racks are easy to put together and sturdy. My pantry is much more organized and looks amazing! These racks have adjustable dividers so almost any size can will fit nicely." โ€”Regis

    Get one on Amazon for $29.97.

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

    the shelves in black holding a blender, a stand mixer, a toaster, cereals, jars, and other items

    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!" โ€”Victoria S.

    Get it on Amazon for $55.44+ (also available in chrome and with or without casters).

    29. A tool organizer that slips right into 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: "Very happy with this. Just what I needed to tame the pile in my five-gal camper tool bucket. Plenty of pockets, large and small sizes on the outside and larger on the inside. Well thought out spaces for hammer, and bucket handle can be used or down. It has a lidded pocket for smaller items, and I love the hooked strap for holding a roll of tape. Canvas is heavy enough that it feels like it will last for many years, not so stiff that you can't easily get your tools in and out. A keeper!" โ€”Fair Comprehensive Reviews

    Get it on Amazon for $16.99.

    30. A tea caddy with drawers โ€” it holds up to 90 different teabags, so you can ditch the piles of boxes to free up tons of cabinet, shelf, or counter space.

    Promising review: "This is the perfect addition to my new kitchen to get my many teas off the counter and out of sight, yet easily accessible. Itโ€™s sturdy plastic and fit exactly between the two trims on the inside of my cabinet. Many asked my question-can you mount it? Yes! The back is flat so I purchased the 3M doubled sided tape and, voila! The description says it holds 90 tea packets but itโ€™s more suitable to 72, 12 in each of the six bins." โ€”2Bounders

    Get it on Amazon for $11.99 (available in three colors).

    31. 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*., Amazon

    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 โ€” I wanted the flexibility to move them if I need to rearrange or take them down cleanly if they end up breaking or failing โ€” 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. 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!" โ€”Dana

    Get them on Amazon for $10.87.

    32. 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 Iโ€™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." โ€”S. Knox

    Get the set of six on Amazon for $14.99.

    33. A set of three colorful and lightweight lidded storage baskets perfect for stashing away pretty much anything you need to: blankets or toys in the living room, extra supplies in the office, shoes in the entryway, magazines in the bathroom...the possibilities are truly endless.

    neutral baskets in small, medium, and large with sparse crisscrossing lines of rainbow color
    The Jungalow

    These are from the Jungalow, a Black woman-owned business founded by Justina Blakeney (whose Instagram and design blog I've swooned over ever since I saw that iconic aqua backsplash.) Jungalow plants two trees for every product purchased!

    Get the set of three from the Jungalow for $199.

    34. 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." โ€”A.A.

    Get a box of five bags on Amazon for $28.99+ (available in three sizes).

    35. 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." โ€”Michelle Laughlin

    Get it on Amazon for $14.99.
