    1. A set of two-tone jute baskets to turn any small shelf space into useful storage, whether it be in the kitchen, bathroom, or living room.

    Effortless Composition

    Get them from Effortless Composition for $24.

    2. An under-the-sink drawer set for keeping a usually ghastly space spick-and-span. It'll banish your worries about visitors realizing you live in squalor when they innocently search for more TP.

    Promising review: "I recently moved into a new place with woefully little bathroom storage. Cue this Amazon purchase. I assembled this baby by myself in under five minutes, no exaggeration. I swept everything out of the cabinet, slid the drawer set in, and started organizing. Ten minutes later, everything from the 'before' picture fit, PLUS entire Costco packages of toilet paper, make-up wipes, and tampons. This is an organizational dream, and easily my best purchase of the year!" —Wallis

    Get it from Amazon for $23.87+ (available in four colors).

    3. A wooden ring holder so your most prized pieces of jewelry can be simultaneously stored *and* on display.

    Get it from CiaraJCo on Etsy for $8.

    4. A many-drawered storage cabinet for storing anything that needs its own little place. Each of your pieces of hardware can each have their own tiny home!

    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 $36.90.

    5. A hanging closet organizer to add some semblance of order to the pile of pants you've had on your closet floor for months. "Oh, but I'm going to dry clean them soon." No. You're not. Let them live their best life in a cubby!

    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 seven colors).

    6. 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 desk paraphernalia.

    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 $22.97 (available in two colors).

    7. A crocheted hammock for making smart use of small spaces and turning any previously empty corner into a chic storage solution.

    Get it from TheEliseBoutique on Etsy for $25 (available in 14 colors).

    8. A hanging jewelry-organizer whose clear pockets allow you to see exactly what you have while keeping all of your baubles neat and — most importantly — off of the vast messy expanse of your dresser top.

    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 $7.49+ (available in three colors).

    9. A pan and lid organizer that can be used both horizontally and vertically so you can fit all of your unwieldy cookware in your tiny kitchen. You may not be able to "open up the space" HGTV-style but you can absolutely make it work.


    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 $15.87.

    10. A cactus catch-all dish perfect for putting next to your front door to store keys and other little eccentricities.

    Get it from Jungalow for $35 (available in four colors).

    11. A mop and broom holder — sometimes even your cleaning products need to be cleaned up, and 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 $15.97.

    12. Weather-tight bins to protect anything in your garage from getting yucky — wouldn't want that old bin of holiday decorations to get infested by bees, eh?!

    The Container Store

    Promising review: "These totes are very sturdy and seal well. They are a good size for me to handle and stack. I will be purchasing more to replace the flimsy totes I have." —SPred

    Get them from The Container Store for $7.49+ (originally $9.99+, available in five sizes).

    13. A bottle rack for finally organizing the unstable mountain of reusable water bottles that have accumulated in your cabinets. Tear down Mount Bottle and take these well-stored babies hiking on an actual mountain!

    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).

    14. A photo storage case so all of your 4x6 memories can be preserved and protected for years to come. Take that, "The Cloud!"

    The Container Store

    Promising review: "The most efficient way to store 50 years worth of priceless family photos. Sorting by year or special event is easy now. No longer do I have to sort through photo albums searching for a particular photo. I've given these containers to family members as gifts." —ChloeBell

    Get it from The Container Store for $19.99 (originally $24.99).

    15. 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 been patiently been waiting for you to tidy 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.

    16. A coiled rope basket so cute your blankets are going to be fighting for a coveted space in it. Calm down guys, there's room for everyone!

    white woven basket with brown faux leather accents

    Promising review: "Really well-made storage basket. Structured enough to keep shape even with heavier items. Bought three for a cabinet storage, holding up really well. Perfect balance between form and function. Highly recommend." —iamtrace

    Get it from Target for $16.99.

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

    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.

    18. An over-the-cabinet storage system so you no longer have to choose between storing your plug-in hair tools dangerously close to the sink or in a tangled mess in a drawer.

    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 $15.99+ (available in five finishes).

    19. A Stasher Bag so food storage is a breeze. Now you can keep your sammies, snacks, and leftovers from going stale *without* having to use disposable zip-top bags.


    I have Stasher bags and they TRULY have so many uses! They are obviously great for storing and transporting food, but they can also be used to sous vide, marinate, and microwave. And they're dishwasher-safe! 10/10 from me.

    Promising review: "What's not to love about Stasher bags? They are so versatile, colorful, and easy to care for. Bonus: you are keeping plastic out of landfills! I use these for meal-prep and kids' lunchboxes. Easy to open and, again, so easy to clean. Stop browsing for environmental alternatives, and order these today!" —Drea_reviews

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in five sizes and 10 colors).

    20. A set of three collapsible bins 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 meta.


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

    Get it from Target for $5 (available in 18 colors).

    21. A ceramic jewelry dish to give your dresser top some much-needed organization and a simple, pretty touch.

    Get it from Anthropologie for $16+ (available in two styles).
