    For anyone whose definitions of "messy" and "organized" have changed since staring at their stuff all day every day.

    1. A honeycomb drawer organizer to get your sock and undie drawer looking fresh — bonus points if you've already purged this drawer in the last six months for "fun."

    Promising review: "Okay, admittedly, I am a bit of an organization freak. I purchased two of these organizers to organize my underwear drawer. The gratification I got from being able to see exactly what I had, neatly organized, and easy to find — wow. I definitely recommend this product. The actual dividers are well made and super easy to assemble. The number of times you will look at your drawer feeling totally satisfied makes the price well worth it." —Brigette

    Get it from Amazon for 11.99.

    2. A pan and lid organizer that can be used both horizontally and vertically so that twinge of stress you feel when you need to noisily get a pan out of a crowded cabinet is *poof* gone.


    During quarantine my partner and I finally invested a little time and money in kitchen organization and pan and lid stackers like this are far and away our favorite purchase. No more scratching pans against each other, potentially ruining their nonstick coatings, just to get them out of a pile! What a concept!

    Promising review: "This rack is perfect. I put my largest skillet on the bottom and smallest at the top. I did not secure the rack with the screws that came with it so I can easily move it if I move my pots and pans area. Even without securing it to the cabinet, it works perfectly and doesn't shift when I remove a pan. I also appreciate the color: others I have seen are shiny silver, which I did not want. I will be buying another one of these for our cabin. I have already recommended this rack to friends." —CustomerO

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

    3. Refrigerator storage bins so you can finally see *everything* you have. No more running to the store for eggs when it turns out you already have a dozen hidden wayyyy in the back., Amazon

    The set includes two wide drawers, two narrow drawers, a can dispenser, and an egg drawer.

    Promising review: "The containers are sturdy and work great! Before my fridge looked like a mess you'd find on an episode of Hoarders — now we're ready for a photo shoot with Martha Stewart! Perhaps that is a slight exaggeration, but truly, I couldn't get a bottle of salad dressing out before without putting three jars of jelly on the counter, knocking over a bottle of ketchup, and stepping on the dog. Now I just open the fridge, pull out the drawer, and take what I need. The dog never even has time to get underfoot!" —hari sharma

    Get them from Amazon for $37.99.

    4. A set of Command hooks to use as instant, damage-free wall organization. I always keep a hearty stash of these in case I simply NEED to display necklaces, make a key hook, or hang a towel in a more convenient spot to tidy things up.,

    Promising review: "We do not have a closet near our front door and needed a simple way to allow guests to hang their coats during a visit. These hooks worked and, because of the white color, are not noticeable when not in use. They even allow me to hang my purse temporarily from time-to-time. Because we are renting, I am super happy that they can be removed without damage and reused again in the future." —L. K. Lawson

    Get a seven-pack from Amazon for $6.99.

    5. A hanging closet organizer to proudly display the sweaters you're about to pull out of storage. Time is indeed passing — might as well make the best of it with a display of cheery knits.

    cloth hanging organizer with five compartments holding pants and sweaters in closet

    Promising review: "Great product. It only took a minute to assemble and hang. I am currently using it for jeans, slacks, shorts, and sweaters. Despite having several garments in the cubbies, I haven't experienced any sag or compromised structural integrity. The six mesh pockets on the sides are great for small items like gloves, beanies, sunglasses, scarves, etc. I am very pleased with the price and quality, I only wish it came in more colors!" —kmsaky

    Get it from Amazon for $12.87 (available in eight colors).

    6. A many-drawered storage cabinet if you keep noticing teeny objects in your house that don't have a place of their own. Bobby pins? Spare hardware? Stray craft supplies? Put 'em in here!

    red cabinet with many tiny plastic drawers of various sizes

    Promising review: "Drawers have smooth action. Can hold a lot of weight per drawer — I have one of the larger drawers nearly full of marbles and other small pieces of glass, and it doesn't seem to be stressing the plastic at all after several weeks of use. If you don't wish to pull the plastic separators from the back of the shelf out, you can use card stock, and it works quite well. I keep mine up against a wall and have not had any issues with the unit tipping, even with several drawers out at once. I use mine to store sewing notions, crafting items, art supplies, office supplies, ink bottles, rock samples, and basically all the flotsam that used to be stored all over my work area, now all organized and contained." —J. Penar

    Get it from Amazon for $37.24.

    7. A set of two-tone jute baskets that's just the start of replacing all of your unattractive storage solutions with chic but equally practical ones.

    Effortless Composition

    Get them from Effortless Composition for $24.

    8. A bottle rack for finally organizing the unstable mountain of reusable water bottles in the house. How have you acquired so many?!

    six water bottles stacked two by three in a clear plastic rack

    Promising review: "I love love love this product! I love water bottles and have acquired a ridiculous amount! The whole top of my cupboard was full of a super messy pile of bottles that were always rolling out. My cupboard is so so so much better! The water bottles look great and they don't fall out on me anymore! It is amazing! And I love that it holds so many!" —Hm247

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in two sizes).

    9. A shower caddy so you can finally clear your products off the tub wall and store your them in a nice, reachable place. The specific "the shampoo bottle fell into the tub and it scared me" scream will never be heard again.

    brown metallic over-shower-head rack with two racks and many hooks

    The caddy fits most shower heads and has lower suction cups to prevent it from moving.

    Promising review: "This shower caddy looks very elegant — the finish is quite beautiful and is perfect in size for my needs, (bar of soap, face wash, bath pouf, shampoo/conditioner). If you don't have a lot of stuff, it would work well for a couple as well, I think. The company was quick to respond to a question I had, so in addition to designing a functional and elegant product, customer service was great. (It might sound sad to hear this, but getting this item and seeing how well it looked in my shower was one of the highlights of my week.)" —Sam I Am

    Get it from Amazon for $22.89+ (available in eight finishes).

    10. Or a shower curtain with pockets if most other storage solutions in your current setup are lacking — or if you just want everything in your life to have pockets.

    clear shower curtain with eight pockets of various sizes and items in them

    Promising review: "I LOVE this shower curtain. I have been buying this curtain for the past six years. If you have a shower that doesn’t have a lot of ledge room for all your 'stuff,' this shower curtain will be your best friend. You can fit so many things inside the pockets! I honestly only use like four to five of the pockets. You can also use this as a liner and have another more decorative shower curtain on the outside but I personally use it as a shower curtain. I usually change it every six months because it does start getting a little soap scummy on the bottom. The best shower curtain/liner money can buy!" —DAtkins

    Get it from Amazon for $15.

    11. A hanger organizer to make your floor look like a floor again instead of a sea of clothes and stray hangers.

    Promising review: "The struggle with hangers has been real for quite some time, I wish I would have known about this thing sooner! This has saved me a TON of room and hassle!" —Kara Adams

    Get it from Amazon for $18.47.

    12. An over-the-cabinet storage system so plug-in hair tools can have their own special place, instead of taking up all of your open under-the-cabinet space in one big rat king-esque ball.

    copper wire cabinet rack with secure storage for a hairdryer and tow other tools

    Promising review: "This product did exactly what I needed it to. Before, all my items were in a drawer and the cords were a pain, but this metal basket minimized clutter, kept things organized and separate, and also looks nice. It fits two of my blow-dryers, a flat iron, and curling wand. The bars are adjustable as well, but the basket fit perfectly to my cabinet. Worth the buy." —Alyssa Jewell

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in eight finishes).

    13. A wall-mounted grocery bag dispenser to give your eyes a break from looking at that mound of spare bags under the sink you've been staring at frustratedly for the past...forever?,

    Promising review: "What a nifty bag organizer! When I think back on all the time I've spent pressing out the air, flattening, and then folding grocery bags so I could use them later as garbage sacks, it would be worth it to have paid $100+ for this handy bag organizer. Just stuff the bags in the opening until it's full. When you want to remove a bag, simply grab one from the slot on the front and pull. It easily comes out. The brushed stainless steel is a vision of beauty to behold. Perfection if you are going to mount it in a visible location. I'm not. Mine is going on the inside of the cabinet door under my kitchen sink. Doesn't matter if it's not easily seen. I should be able to look at beauty when I open my cabinet door, too. I highly recommend this item." —Lynne

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

    14. A set of under-the-bed bags for storing off-season clothes for the fall/winter, and in spring/summer when it rolls around again. *sigh*


    Promising review: "This was exactly what I needed! Perfect to store some clothes under my bed! It fit perfectly. I like how the sides were not hard so it was easy to put under my bed, which has a shorter frame. Will definitely buy again when I need to store more clothes!" —Amazon Customer

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in three colors).

    15. A literal ~catch-all~ dish, because it's time to accept that your dresser top will never be clear, but that doesn't mean you can't have some cute decor that doubles as a place to put your most precious items.

    white ceramic dish shaped like a hand holding rings, necklaces, and a makeup brush

    Jungalow is a Black woman-owned business started by designer Justina Blakeney. Their mission is to sustainably make your space more creative and inspirational with their eclectic collection of decor, home goods, and prints.

    Get it from Jungalow for $49.

    16. An airtight pantry-organizing container set if the quarantine baking stuck and you've been longing for a way to keep your massive amount of dry goods tidy.

    Five transparent, stackable pop-lock lid containers with two small, two medium, and one large

    Promising review: "When you use OXO products, you know to expect quality and these storage containers did not disappoint! You get five containers in four sizes that perfectly vacuum seal to protect your food. The sizes are useful and versatile, and the airtightness means no worrying about pests. While these are recommended for storing dry goods, I put some liquid (olives and brine) in one of them to REALLY test the seal. Even when you turn it upside-down, no liquid leaks out. Another nice feature is that you can partially disassemble the lid by removing the white plastic piece on top of the gasket, allowing you to completely clean the gasket. I tried this on the container with the olives, and it worked perfectly. The entire container has no residual smell. Overall, if you want the best in food storage containers, these OXO containers are absolutely essential!" —Emi A

    Get a set of five from Amazon for $49.95 (available in eight size configurations).

    17. A mop and broom holder, because one of life's crushing realizations is that sometimes even your cleaning products need to be cleaned up. This is just the tool for that meta task.

    wall rack with hooks clasps that grab broom and mop handles

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this product! I cleaned my laundry room last week and wanted to organize all my brooms, mops and even mini vacuum. This handled the job and then some! Installed in minutes and is very strong. Love the added hooks as well." —Judyque

    Get it from Amazon for $17.97.

    18. A classic mesh desk organizer that you've probably been meaning to buy for forever! Just get one already — they really do help with organizing mail, important documents, office supplies, and any extraneous work from home paraphernalia.

    reviewer's black metal organizer with a drawer with three compartments, a shelf, and letter organizer

    Promising review: "Fantastic product, exactly as shown online. Good strong material and extremely pleased. The assembly instructions were very clear with pictures, simple steps, and no tools needed. It looks very professional and organized, and it houses all my daily office needs from TI-84 calculators, staplers, folders, envelopes, sticky notes and a whole lot." —Kiran Rao

    Get it from Amazon for $24.87 (available in two colors).

    19. Or adjustable desk shelves if you want to organize your desk and give it a little more personality. Plenty of room for your favorite books, knickknacks, and framed photos of your dog here!

    A set of desk shelves in a light wood that fit several books, plants, and desk accessories

    Promising review: "Working from home I needed something to organize my work essentials so I didn’t feel like my table was just a mess of stuff. This is better than I expected. It’s cute, it makes access to what I need easier and I’m able to have things organized. Even after I’m able to go back to the office I can see use for this for many things!" —Jennifer

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99 (available in three colors).

    20. A spice-organizing drawer liner — because we've all been cooking at home so much, it's more annoying than ever to have to root around for paprika during a crucial moment.,

    Promising review: "We just moved into a new home, and I needed a way to store spices in a drawer. This product is exactly what I was looking for. It fits beautifully in my drawer, but I love that the strips can be cut for a custom fit. I shopped around for other in-drawer spice organizers, but I would have had to purchase separate jars and transfer the spices. No thanks. This product works with the jars and containers just as they come from the store — no need to purchase special jars. It holds large and small round jars, square containers, and oversized spices. The quality is outstanding. I'm very happy with my purchase!" —EPD611

    Get a 10-foot roll from Amazon for $15.99.

    21. A collapsible bin for any of your belongings that just don't have a home yet. When you're done using them — *BAM* — they collapse, basically storing themselves, so maybe get a few more than you think you need.

    black fabric cube with thin grey grid print holding pillow

    Promising review: "Economical and attractive! Perfect for a cube shelf unit." —GM

    Get it from Target for $4 (originally $5, available in 11 colors).

    22. A four-drawer cosmetics organizer, because it's about time you move your collection out of that free bag you got when you were 13! I'm not wearing much makeup right now, but when I start again I'd be excited to return to a true vanity setup.

    clear acrylic organizer with two big drawers, two small drwers, and spaces for lipsticks, taller products, and brushed on top

    Promising review: "I LOVE this makeup organizer! I can't believe how affordable it is considering the high quality. The drawers, which slide in and out with ease, are perfect for eye shadow palettes, powders, etc. Now I can access my makeup without digging through a messy bathroom drawer. I love how this storage system is expandable by purchasing additional units. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!" —Content Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    23. An over-the-door basket to keep cutting boards, plastic wrap, and plastic bags out of the way. That one weird skinny cabinet was just NOT working for you.

    metal over-the-door hanger holding cutting boards and a muffin pan

    Promising review: "This organizer is so useful! I recently moved and ended up with a much smaller kitchen, so I've been doing everything I can to make sure there's a place for everything and no wasted space. Luckily, I have pretty wide cabinets, so this works out perfectly. I have one holding my cutting boards (four standard plastic boards) and another holding my foil, cling wrap, and parchment paper boxes. The organizer is super easy to assemble and it's completely versatile — you can hang it over the cabinet door or attach it to the wall/cabinet door, which means it's great for renters and owners." —Kerry

    Get it from Amazon for $13.87.

    24. A nail polish organizer, because if you're like me, painting your nails and watching them dry suddenly seems like prime entertainment. Give all of your colors the nice little space they deserve.

    This holds 48 bottles and is double-sided, so you can always see all of your colors.

    Promising review: "This is better than advertised. All my bottles 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 it from Amazon for $23.29 (available in two colors).

    25. A set of drawer organizers to transform your junk drawer into the most beautiful drawer in the land. Your bathroom, kitchen, and credenza drawers have noticed you're home more and are wondering if you're gonna clean them up.

    six clear containers holding objects in a bathroom drawer

    Promising review: "Great little storage devices that make opening a bathroom drawer a relatively clean experience, rather than a messy five-minute adventure just to find the toothpaste. Nice, sturdy, and lightweight. If you need bathroom drawer organization, these are a great way to go." —Haon the Great

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $15.99.

    26. A hanging jewelry-organizer, because you may not be wearing a ton of jewelry right now, but those clear pockets will allow you to see exactly what you have when the time comes.

    Promising review: "I needed something that would save me space, but where I could still see all of my jewelry. These things are extremely durable. I bought two of them, and I have probably 50 or so necklaces on one side and maybe 30 pairs of earrings on the other side. There is not a single tear in it. In the other one I keep nail polishes. It is very convenient because you can see all the colors and it does not take up that much space." —Nellie F.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in three colors).

    "Yeah, but constantly organizing and reorganizing won't make you feel like you have control over your life."
