1. A drawer organizer that'll corral your undies so you never have to dig past t-shirts looking for your last clean pair ever again. Plus they'll help you track exactly how long you have until laundry day.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I LOVE LOVE LOVE these organizers!! I almost did not purchase them due to the reviews saying that larger than a C cup would not fit into the bra organizer. At just $13 for 4 organizers I took my chances and ordered two sets of 4. I figured, worst case scenario I would have to cut the dividers out of the bra organizers. I'm not sure if its just the larger band sizes that wont fit in these bra organizers? I am guessing if you wear a 36 band size or above that the organizer maybe too narrow to fit the bra. However, I believe you could fold in the extra band and fit them in. I had no problem fitting DD cups into these. I wear a 32 DD and the bras fit beautifully in the organizers. 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.” —Elizabeth L Blackwell

2. A thin bookshelf to help maximize that one tiny strip of annoying unused space.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “There was a small empty space between the door and TV in my bedroom — just too small to put anything there... well, I was wrong! Since this bookcase took that spot, it became the most handy and useful area!! A night light, Roku, a cell/tablet power station, books, a watch, keys, and an alarm clock — everything I need is there in the morning and before going to bed.

My salt rock night light is quite big and heavy but this bookcase has no problem with it. Very steady!! Don't underestimate this unbelievable low price bookcase.” —Lei

Get it from Amazon for $21.05+ (available in eight colors and three rod styles).

3. A storage bench that'll instantly double your shoe storage, add an extra spot to sit, and still look classy AF.

amazon.com

It also comes with a handy tray insert, so you can store another layer of stuff along with your shoes and not worry about getting ~shoe gunk~ on everything.

Promising review: “Great buy. I thought it would be flimsy since it was inexpensive but that's not the case. I have received many compliments and feel secure when I sit on it. I use it for the foot of my bed and it matched perfectly with my charcoal fabric headboard. This ottoman has exceeded my expectations.” —SARAH

Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

4. A set of shelf dividers that'll save you from the dreaded Leaning Tower of Sweaters.

Promising review: “I don't like hanging my loose knit tops and sweaters so I tend to stack them in my wardrobe shelves, but the stacks would repeatedly end up knocked over or smooshed together...so I was thrilled when I stumbled across these little gems! They fit securely on my wardrobe shelves but not so tightly that they cannot be easily moved around without scratching the wood. They keep everything neatly organized and easily accessible.” —RobinGet a set of two from Amazon for $29.99 (also available in a set of four).

5. A three-drawer chest with storage for everything you could possibly need, anywhere you could possibly need it — it can hold extra sheets as a bedside table, store your sweaters in the closet, or sort your entire makeup collection as a corner vanity.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I did not want to buy a dresser since all of my clothes mostly fit in my closet. I didn't have anywhere to put my socks, underwear, and bras and didn't want to just leave them in piles in my closet like a weirdo. I found this and it works exactly as I expected it to. It was incredibly easy to put together. Its stable enough to place humidifiers or lamps on top of if desired. No complaints at all. My clothes are now neatly tucked away without the need for a heavy, giant dresser.” —Riss

Get it from Amazon for $49.99 (available in three colors). Also available in a shorter two-drawer style for $39.99 and a taller four-drawer style for $59.99.

6. A set of storage bags to keep your sweaters (and at this time of year, bikinis 😭) from taking up precious space in your drawers and on your closet rod.

amazon.com

Promising review: “I was in need of something to store summer/winter clothes other than a big plastic tote. I came across this product in my search and thought for the price, it give it a try. I'm so glad I did!!! These storage bags are fantastic!! I was pleasantly surprised to find that I could pack more into these bags than I first thought. Even when full, they're still compact enough to store in the bottom of a small closet. Construction on these bags are great and the see through front panel is so much better than having to rip through bags to see what's inside!! LOVED also that it came with 3 bags at a great price. Shipping was super fast too. I will definitely be buying more of these!!!” —Rebecca Barber

Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in four colors and six styles).

7. A ladder rack for blankets, scarves, or just those clothes that you've worn but aren't quiiiiiite ready to wash yet.

Check out a BuzzFeeder's review of this ladder rack.

Promising review: “Extremely happy with this purchase! The ladder is lightweight but sturdy. I use it in my bedroom to hang clothes from, and it's perfect for the job!” —Lisa S.

Get it from Amazon for $50 (available in two colors).

8. A clothes folder that'll have all your shelves and drawers looking like a display in a store.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “Who knew one could get such simple pleasure from having neatly stacked t-shirts, similar to a clothing store. I have about 30 t-shirts that were folded in all different ways. Eyesore. It took me less than 10 minutes to fold all of them. And less than a minute to fold them after laundry each week. Using this thing allows you to fold them consistently so they're stacked neatly.” —kvrntr

Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in four colors).

9. A rope basket to store extra blankets and pillows in, or even to use as a really bougie (if kinda small) laundry basket.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I now own six (!!) of these. They are spectacular. They are not only well made, but they are soft to the touch and attractive looking out in the open. I have them wherever I need a little extra storage. I saw the price drop by $5, so I bought two more.....PSYCHED!! A great item at a great price; I wouldn't hesitate to buy more as needed. I use them for kids toys, towels, socks, etc.” —Mike in Brooklyn

Get it from Amazon for $19.87+ (available in three colors)

10. A bedside tray that'll work great for students, non-students, and basically any bedroom that doesn't have a good space for a nightstand.

Promising review: “I'm a 31-year old married homeowner, and recently purchased two of these trays to use as bedside tables in our master bedroom. The layout of our Cape Cod style home makes it difficult to furnish at times, but these little tray tables filled a very real need. They are surprisingly sturdy and easy to use — they hold a charging station for my phone and computer, a water bottle, coffee cup, and a book without any signs of distress. It's not the most glamorous bedside table, I know, but highly functional. I strongly recommend this product.” —Brittany W.Get it from Amazon for $28.50 (available in four colors).

11. A garment rack for expanding your tiny closet so you actually have more space to hang things, or for planning out a week's worth of outfits in advance.

Promising review: “I lay my clothes out for the entire work week and this product has been great for just that! No need anymore for over the door hangers for each day! This product is stable and I love the shelf on the bottom for shoes! I put it together myself and it was pretty easy and only took less than 10 minutes!” —Buy It All!Get it from Amazon for $37.99+ (available in two colors and four styles).

12. A shoe organizer so you can save your shoes — or literally anything else — from ending up in a disorganized heap.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I am using this for leggings, not shoes, and so far, so good. Seems to be a well made product. Doesn't slide around on the door like some other ones I've tried. Has decently sized pockets. I am surprisingly pleased with this.” —Cantstopshopping

Other reviewers use this organizer to store snacks, hair tools, baby products, and yarn. Some even turn it into a hanging garden.

Get it from Amazon for $7.87.

13. Or, a shoe rack for those who aren't into the over-the-door styles, but still need something to declutter the bottom of the closet.

Promising review: “This review is coming a mechanically inept person so snapping the pieces together was easy. I did the two pack and it took me maybe eight minutes. No tools required. What a difference!” —JessicaGet one from Amazon for $29.99 (also available in a two pack).

14. A pack of cable clips to stop your nightstand (or, let's be real, the back of your nightstand) from turning into a tangled mess.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “These are just what I needed! I have literally stuck them all over my house. I specifically bought them to keep my phone charging cord on my nightstand. I stuck one of these on the back, out of sight, and a single clip holds both (old iPad and 5S) charging cords that always used to fall off and had me digging around under my bed. They also work great for keeping my desk cords organized and I even stuck one on the back of my couch to keep the living room phone charger accessible.” —Kat in SD

Get a pack of six from Amazon for $8.98.

15. A toy hammock that'll keep just about anything off the ground — not just stuffed animals. (Although, TBH, there's no shame in that adult stuffie game.)

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “This was so easy to set up and holds all my stuffed animals well. It's a cute way to get all my stuffed animals off of my bed. I figure I'm in my 20's and can't be surrounded by stuffed animals on my bed anymore. This is a nice compromise from being surrounded by them and getting rid of them.” —waffley

Get it from Amazon for $12.98 (available in five colors and two sizes).

16. A laundry hamper with a detachable laundry bag that'll make transporting clothes from your bedroom to the washing machine a snap.

amazon.com, amazon.com

While it won't automatically pick up your clothes for you (~if only~), it looks nice enough to keep out in the open, so you'll actually be reminded to toss your clothes in it instead of just leaving them on the floor.

Promising review: “I can't believe I'm writing a review for a laundry basket, but I love it that much, so here I am. I purchased one at the Container Store that was $90, and once I got it home, it was ok, but I felt guilty for spending that much money on something you throw dirty clothes in. I've recently moved into a new condo where storage is a premium, however, the bathroom is pretty large, which is why I decided I needed something that was publicly presentable. The quality of this hamper for $35 goes way beyond the price. It's attractive, stylish even, and very sturdy. I love it.” —Alan McGinnis

Get it from Amazon for $29.95+ (available in four colors and single and double styles).

17. A splurgeworthy valet stand so you can feel like an old-timey gentleman — even if you only use it to set out your gym clothes.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “No more chair sloppiness! I couldn't take the sloppy look in my bedroom when my stuff was either on a chair or hanging over the TV screen. Besides that, my suit is not creased at work anymore. Keeps everything nice and organized. And the wood finish blends into the room like a piece of furniture, which makes it even more awesome. Would recommended it to everyone!” —Happy Customer

Get it from Amazon for $99.99.

With all these things, you'll be on the same level as Mary Poppins herself.
