    1. A can dispenser able to hold up to 36 cans of your favorite soups, sauces, veggies, and everything else. This super sturdy rack makes seeing and grabbing any can easy peasy.

    2. A cabinet door organizer so that your cutting boards and paper boxes (that hold aluminum foil, parchment, etc) have a home of their very own.

    3. Some food storage containers with airtight lids that are great for storing your nonperishables and making sure your pantry looks Pinterest-ready.

    4. Or a set of Oxo food storage containers if you want something with a little more ~aesthetic~. Not only do they look great and make pantries seem so organized, but the airtight seal really does prolong the life of nonperishable items like pastas, flour, and chips.

    Push down the button on the top to activate the airtight seal. To open, just push down again for the button to pop up. The lid also comes apart for easier cleaning.

    Promising review: "Love the Oxo pop-top canisters! They seal well and open easily with a press to the pop-top. I have arthritis in my hands and these are fabulous and so easy to open, yet so secure when the lid is popped close. Also has a useful knob on the bottom of the lid so you can stick an Oxo scoop inside the container to the lid rather than down in whatever you are storing in the container." —Lori A. Fregin

    5. A sturdy Command spray bottle mount that'll organize and save tons of space in messy cabinets and hold the weight of your go-to cleaning goods — each mount can hold up to 2.5 pounds!

    6. A macramé produce hammock for fruit storage that takes up zero countertop space. This is the perfect solution for folks who can't get enough citrus, bananas, and apples but have close to no countertop space.

    7. A bakeware rack you can use for a whole lot more than sheet trays and cupcake pans. You know the dilemma you face when you wanna stack your pots and pans neatly, but then you have nowhere to put their lids? This product fixes that!

    8. A spice rack drawer organizer in a 10-foot roll that you can cut to size. The roll provides enough length to organize 30+ full-size spice bottles.

    9. A KitchenAid attachment organizer for making sure you have easy access to what you need when the urge to bake strikes. We've all been there: you want to bake something and you spend hours sorting through all your cabinets and drawers looking for the whisk attachment. Well time is money so we're done with that!

    10. A two-sided tea organizer so you can stop taking up so much space with nearly empty tea boxes in your cupboard. Seriously, you'll be shocked by how much space all those near-empty tea boxes are taking up.

    11. A set of adjustable mug organizers that let you double up on vertical mug storage. This simple but genius product lets you safely stack one mug on top of the other, freeing up at least half of the horizontal cabinet space.

    Promising review: "I love these cup organizers. I have a small cabinet above where my coffeepot is and these have made it a pleasure to open that cabinet. All cups are organized and easy to get to. They stay right where they should be. No more stacking them inside one another and them falling over when I opened the cabinet. I also use these for some bowls in my dish set. Works great. I just ordered a couple more and I am going to use them for my china cabinet. I wondered when I first bought them because the price was a little high. Worth every penny and more. I can not say enough good about these." —ChefGirl

    12. A scrap trap to make sure food prep doesn't result in a huge mess — just chop up your ingredients and push them into this lil' bucket.

    13. A set of magnetic glass spice jars if you have a ton of spices and nowhere to store them. Plus, they look cool and can go on any magnetic surface, so fridges and the not hot part of stoves. Get creative!

    14. An extra-large silicone ice tray perfect for freezing large amounts of soup or broth for you to eat later. Each cube is the equivalent of one cup, so make a big pot of soup, sauce, or broth and then freeze it for later use!

    Promising review: "This product is an absolute game changer for folks who cook in volume for food prep or just to store leftovers in an efficient, organized way! I saw these on a different site and definitely hesitated for a while due to the price. Finally sucked it up and ordered, couldn't be happier! I've made soups, enchilada sauce, chili, breakfast casserole, etc.! Great for portion sizing! My freezer is becoming much more organized, giving me more room! I've told everyone about these! Just love them!" —Deborah L. Hughes

    15. A 24-pocket shoe organizer that reviewers actually use to store pantry overage. Also, how many people actually have a pantry!??! If you have a door you just hang this over it, and now all your nonperishables are right there where you need them, no cabinet or drawer space required.

    16. A shelving unit with a simplicity that makes it perfect. It can be used to store anything, from small appliances like microwaves and rice cookers to kitchen overage, like drinks and cleaning supplies.

    17. A silverware sorter that fits a full 24-piece cutlery set but takes up half the space of a traditional organizer, freeing up so much extra storage in a drawer you never thought you could get back.

    18. A magnetic stove shelf to turn that unused space on the top of your stove into a fully functional shelf, no installation required. It also has a small back lip, so you won't worry about stuff slipping off behind the stove, never to be seen again.

    19. A set of shelf bins so that your eggs, drinks, snacks, and fruits have their own home and are easily accessible. Trust me, I have these in my fridge and it makes finding things so much easier.

    20. And set of fridge organization labels that have a ton of font, size, and color options. Take your fridge's organization to the next level by making sure every spot is labeled with what goes where.

    21. A container lid organizer to finally keep all your lids organized in one easily accessible way. Never again will you be sifting through a sea of lids trying to find the exact one you need to save your leftover spaghetti.

    22. A multi-purpose basket that extends to fit whatever sink you're working with. Thanks to its drainage holes, you can use it for all types of cleaning tasks, from cleaning veggies and fruits to silverware and plates. It also collapses when not in use for easy storage. Remind me again why we're still using those giant metal colanders that take up so much space!?!

    23. A magnetic paper towel holder to put on your fridge so that you free up counter space. Seriously, I actually have this thing and it's a game-changer. I didn't know how much space my old holder was taking up until I switched to this fridge magnet one.

    24. A mini countertop compost bin for stylishly storing your foodstuff scraps before it's time to throw them into the compost pile. It's very compact so it won't take up as much space as a traditional compost bin. Reviewers say that the inside is super smooth, so no food scraps will get stuck in nooks or crannies.

    25. A sandwich bag organizer to make sure you never have a drawer full of loose plastic bags and bag boxes.

    26. An eight-piece stackable glass bowl set, because prepping food can get dizzying if you aren't organized. These tiny but mighty bowls can hold chopped veggies or fruit, grains, leftovers, you name it.

    27. An expandable, three tier spice rack that'll fit perfectly in most cabinets. At its narrowest it's 14-1/4" inches wide, and when it's fully expanded it's 23-3/4". I've used this at three different apartments and each time it fit perfectly in my cabinet because it's adjustable. Each shelf has rubber lining, so spice jars won't tip over or move easily.

    28. Or a "Spicy Shelf" to beautifully display your spices while also making room for everything else you need to store.

    29. A slide-out storage tower with three shelves, perfect for tight spaces like the awkward gap between your stove or fridge and your cabinets. From commonly used cooking items to cleaning supplies, this narrow storage tower can provide you with the extra storage you need.

    30. A food storage set that includes eight 30-ounce containers with lids, perfect for meal prepping. The containers are glass, which means you won't get the food stains you often see with traditional plastic food storage containers.
