    1. A five-section hanging organizer for adding some shelf space you won't realize how much you truly needed until you hang this handy baby up. The perfect place for handbags, shoes, and folded clothes.

    Amazon

    Made with metal hooks that easily hang from closet rods or garment racks.

    Promising review: "I love this hanging closet organizer, we are using it in our nursery and it is the perfect size for our small closet. I have purchased products like this in the past that had very little structure to them and they sagged at the top — this does not do that, it is very structured — it hangs exactly like in the picture. For a nursery, it is just what I was looking for. Highly recommend." —Chelsea C.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    2. Boot shapers to keep your boots standing up straight. When the tall ones do that thing where they wilt away? Ugh, there's just something SO frustrating about it. Like, stand up, fix your posture, PLEASE.

    amazon.com

    These versatile shapers can be customized to fit ankle, calf, and knee-high boots!

    Promising review: "These are simple shapes of die-cut black plastic that you bend and insert into boots to keep them upright. The plastic has enough springiness that they expand to the width of the boot, and also a slight ribbing on one side (the side you put facing the boots) so they don't slip. Height is adjustable for short, medium, and tall boots!" —PK

    Get a pack of four (two pairs) from Amazon for $9.99.

    3. A car headrest hook that'll hold onto shopping bags, coats, toys, handbags, and more so that your vehicle looks clean and not like the inside of a garbage can.

    Patriot 3d Printing / Etsy

    Promising review: "This is a nifty little item to use for car storage, and I was happy to find a color that matches my car interior. Plus, the seller customized the item to fit my car headrest size." —rspsalesandservices

    Get it from Patriot 3d Printing on Etsy for $5 (available in 19 colors).

    4. A front sink tray so you can keep your sponges, scrubbers, and brushes out of the sink because, TBH, they don't really belong living at the bottom of it.

    The front sink trays
    Amazon

    Includes one open tray, one accessory tray with a ring holder, and two pairs of hinges and mounting hardware.

    Promising review: "Love this! No more clutter of sponges and stoppers around the sink. We installed these when swapping out the sink. Installation with no sink in place is a breeze; otherwise I can see how it might be tricky. The hinges work well. They were a little stiff at first but loosened up in a day or two. They still close with a little "snap," which one time jettisoned the sponge into the under-sink cabinet — now I know where to look if it ever goes missing again. The trays can be slid off their mounting screws and rinsed out when they get a little dirty from storing the cleaning supplies." —Lisa

    Get it from Amazon for $22.50.

    5. But if you MUST have them out in plain-sight, this sink caddy will be more than happy to help.

    The sink caddy that hooks around faucet
    Amazon

    Features an adjustable strap that makes it easy to hang from most standard kitchen sink faucets. The drain holes help to prevent water from accumulating inside.

    Promising review: "Fantastic solution for sponges. The OXO one that we used to have wouldn't stay attached to the side of the sink. The suction cups got brittle and less functional over time. This thing is great! Hangs perfectly from the faucet and adds a little stylish flair." —C. Osterhout

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95.

    6. A honeycomb drawer organizer so when you open up your drawer to just casually get out a pair of socks, you can just reach for the socks and not have to sift through a huge mess to find them.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Best product I have bought yet! I even purchased three more for my hubby and his sock drawer. He saw how great mine looked and wanted to use it as well. I have never been organized before, and I love the fact I can SEE where everything is now! I don't have to dig to the bottom of the drawer to find things. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this product!" —Da Vince

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    7. A jewelry tree to keep earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings orderly, while also making for a SUPER PRETTY decorative piece.

    Samantha Wieder / BuzzFeed

    Up until a few weeks ago, I kept my jewelry in a small little jewelry box, and every time I would go to grab a necklace or a bracelet, I almost always had to spend extra time untangling it. I wasn't quite sure what to expect from this jewelry tree, but it was cheaper than some of the other options I was considering, so I decided to take a chance, and I'm SO glad I did. Setting it up was really simple, and it looks SO NICE on my dresser. I'm able to see my jewelry right in front of me, and I don't have to untangle my necklaces just to get to them. I absolutely adore it!

    Get it from Amazon for $19.91+ (available in two colors).

    8. A hanging basket that makes an additional storage spot for things like plastic wrap and bags, but can also be used as a mini waste basket!

    Amazon

    If using as a trash bin, this basket can accommodate 4 gallon trash bags, or you can just use plastic grocery bags!

    Promising review: "I hung this over one of the doors beneath my sink, and it is very handy. It is large and holds all my aluminum foil, handy wrap, wax paper, etc. I was afraid it would interfere with the magnetic cabinet locks I was installing to thwart my toddler grandson, but it did not. Much better product than I could find in any brick-and-mortar store." —Linda Cawthon

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in three finishes).

    9. A pill keeper to make managing your pills easier. No more wondering if you actually remembered to take a certain medication — just divide your pills up into the daily boxes at the start of the week, and you'll be good to go.

    Nordstrom

    Get it from Nordstrom for $20 (available in three colors).

    10. A nail polish organizer for providing a clean case to hold your pretty polishes. Because scattered across your dresser or bathroom counter isn't where they belong.

    Amazon

    This holds 48 bottles and is double-sided, so you can always see your nail polish colors in front of you!

    Promising review: "This is better than advertised. ESSIE, OPI, POP-ARRAZI, SINFUL COLORS, SH INSTADRY, SH TRIPLE SHINE, SH XRREME WEAR, WET AND WILD, SH HARD AD NAILS, and COVER GIRL all 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 $27.89+ (available in two colors).

    11. An organizer that'll make finding your favorite tea bag a heck of a lot easier than rummaging through a million and one scattered tea boxes.

    The tea organizer with six pull out trays
    Amazon

    This thing features six drawers and each one can hold up to 15 tea bags. It has rubber grippers on the bottom to keep the holder in place on your counter!

    Promising review: "It allows me to keep track of which tea bags I have and it neatly organizes them. It doesn't take up a lot of room in my cupboard, which is another nice perk." —Judi

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in five styles).

    12. Plus, a drawer to place your coffee maker on top of! You can then fill the drawers with your pods, sweeteners, and creamer.

    The drawer underneath a Keurig, opened and holding various coffee pods
    amazon.com

    Holds 36 cups!

    Promising review: "I am so glad I got this. It makes for such great streamlined storage. Keeps things tidy and neat, and also helps me keep track of how many cups I have left to determine whether or not I need to add to my grocery list. It is very sturdy and I fit my machine on top. The top is very durable, hard plastic and does not buckle with the weight of the machine filled with water on top." —tunisianswife

    Get it from Amazon for $20.22 (available in nine styles).

    13. A spice rack drawer organizer that'll make looking for your favorite seasonings super easy, plus this is a simple way to prevent messy clutter.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is one of the favorite things I've ever purchased from Amazon! They are so customizable and allow you to cut them and shape them to any drawer size. I think this will be my go-to gift for all of my friends who love cooking as much as I do! Freeing up cabinet space and having something that can so easily be rinsed off in the sink makes this a for sure buy!" —momonono

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    14. A collapsible file storage organizer to store important files and documents in something that looks v professional.

    The file organizers in gray
    Amazon

    Promising review: "These by far exceeded my expectations. I'm in the process of a major organization project and these are perfect because they are very clean-looking, sturdy, and durable. I’m using them for my files as well as other things like office supplies and small electronics I don’t use every day. They are perfect for getting clutter put away when your home doesn’t have enough cabinets and drawers." —RaVo

    Get it from Amazon for $25.96/one (available in four colors).

    15. A book by the organization mastermind herself, Marie Kondo — learn all about the Japanese art of decluttering your living space once and for all. If it doesn't spark joy, THEN GET RID OF IT!

    The book cover
    Amazon

    Promising review: "Easy read. I’m motivated to make 2019 the year to get my house organized forever. After combining five households into one 1,500-square-foot home, we have way too much stuff! I’ve slowly been donating or throwing things away, but have been holding onto too many things that don’t spark joy. Now I get it and know what to do! Watching her series on Netflix is an added inspiration!" —Margaret SC Allport

    Get it from Amazon for free/Audiobook, $9.69/hardcover, or $9.99/Kindle, $19.60/paperback, $24.99/MP3 CD.

    16. A mail organizer with five hook attachments — a great item to hang by the front door and put things like mail you just received or are planning on sending, keys, hats, umbrellas, and anything else you can think of!

    A black organizer hanging on the wall filled with envelopes, featuring five hooks on the bottom holding onto keys
    Amazon

    Made of shatter-resistant plastic and comes with the hardware needed to mount this to your wall!

    Promising review: "Our apartment door opens directly into our kitchen, which led to the kitchen table becoming the dumping ground for mail, keys, etc. Not anymore! This mail holder is small enough that it fits neatly beside our door, and it has plenty of room to hold all of our mail, keys, and lanyards! It was really easy to install and feels secure on the wall. This makes our kitchen so much more organized, and it looks great!"—Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (available in five colors).

    17. A cute notepad to make to-do lists of the things you intend on getting done this week. They may not all get done, they may never get done, but hey, it's the planning and the thought that counts.

    The notepad that reads "Things that may or may not get done today" at the top
    Whylime Design / Etsy

    Get it from Whylime Design on Etsy for $7.77.

    18. A cutlery drawer organizer that'll consolidate all of your forks, knives, and spoons into one fabulous little tool.

    The tiered cutlery organizer
    Amazon

    Features cutlery icons for easy identification. They recommend to wash and dry this by hand!

    Promising review: "Yes, this little utensil tray is really that good! I went from using 12 inches of horizontal space in a lovely but huge wooden utensil tray to using about four inches (whatever the width of this godsend is). It stores my butter knives, steak knives, spoons, forks, and a slew of little teaspoons. I'd guess that the max capacity for each slot is about 10 pieces. For example, I fit four butter knives and four steak knives into the first/knife slot easily, with good wiggle room. This is such a great design. Using this tray opened up about half of my 18-inch-wide drawer, which allowed me to decompress the other drawers in my kitchen a bit. I highly recommend this item. It's worth every penny." —Kathleen Cooke

    Get it from Amazon for $9.17 (available in two colors).

    19. A seagrass basket available in a variety of sizes and styles (as seen below) that'll make for a darling little spot to store items like keys and wallets, linens and bath towels, or even your dog's toys.

    20. A 24-pocket clear over-the-door organizer to store your shoes, jewelry, accessories, or even use in another room of the house for things like cleaning supplies!

    The organizer
    Samantha Wieder / BuzzFeed

    Since I couldn't put all of my shoes on the shoe rack above, I knew I needed another organizer, but didn't necessarily need a whole other shoe rack. What I did was put my "bulkier" shoes like boots, running sneakers, etc., on the shoe rack. I then put my "less bulky" shoes like sandals into this clear pocket organizer, (and then I put the shoes that I wear most often by the front door, hence why there is a missing pocket randomly in the middle of the picture aboveI. I have a little extra pocket space remaining at the top, so I used it to store some additional jewelry like super long necklaces that were too long to hand on my jewelry tree. This was super easy to set up, and after seeing so many wonderful reviews about it, I'm glad I finally got one.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.87 (available in three colors).

    21. An over-the-cabinet bag holder for an easy spot to put shopping bags, rather than leaving them strewn across the counters... or worse... ending up in the garbage, never to be used again.

    The bag holder over a cabinet
    Amazon

    It can hold up to about 50 bags!

    Promising review: "I love this so much! I have been looking for something for all of the grocery bags I keep! We use these for our bathroom trash bags. This little thing is a awesome. And my kids can easily reach inside and get a bag out! Love it!" —Lindsey T.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in seven finishes).

    22. A pretty office supply organizer set to keep any desk clean and conducive to a productive working environment.

    The organizer set in mint
    Amazon

    Comes with five pieces!

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this set! It is the perfect mint color to give my office some character. For the price the set is a good quality and should hold up for a long time with normal use. One of the fins was a little bent on the letter-holder, but it took seconds to fix and you can't tell now." —LauraC

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    23. Or, if you don't need quite a whole set, this supplies organizer – it's great for holding basics like pens, pencils, highlighters, note pads, paper clips, rubber bands, and more!

    The organizer in black with five basket bins, and two drawers
    Samantha Wieder / BuzzFeed

    As someone who personally did not need a full desk supplies organization set, and just needed a little thing like this, it's so great, and so handy! Being that most of the work I do is done on a computer, I don't have a ton of supplies, but I have just enough that this thing is perfect — I use it to store rubber bands, pens, pencils, scissors, push pins, wipes to clean my glasses, and I even found it to be a good spot to store my portable phone chargers and extra phone-charging cord. It comes assembled already, so literally all you need to do is fill it with your belongings, set it on your desk or table, and you're good to go!

    Get it from Amazon for $9.97 (available in two colors).

    24. A handbag organizer that'll help keep your precious belongings nice and tidy — because anyone who uses a purse knows just how EASY it is to mess it up in a matter of seconds.

    Target

    Promising review: "Never knew a purse organizer was an option until someone told me. I searched and found exactly what I needed to organize my purse. I am extremely happy with this purchase." —KittyY

    Get it from Target for $19.99 (available in three colors).

    25. Wonder Hangers to help you group certain garments together, which in turn makes it easier to find that shirt you know you own, but can't seem to find no matter how many times you look.

    Amazon

    It comes with 10 hangers that can hold five garments each, 10 if you double them up!

    Promising review: "I use these hangers for shirts and tees. They allow me to easily find any shirt in my closet and take up very little space compared to single shirts on single hangers. I can also group shirts together by style or color on a single swivel hanger. I am now able to hang additional items in my closet without crowding. I bought this in white and the edges are smooth." —CAGH

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $12.99.

    26. An S-shaped hanger that'll provide the perfect solution to hanging up pants, jeans, and even accessories or linens! I personally find hanging jeans up side-by-side on separate hangers takes up quite a bit of space. Well... NOT ANYMORE!

    Clothes hanging on S-shaped hangers
    Amazon

    These durable, stainless-steel hangers can hold about five garments each!

    Promising review: "My closet was a disaster area. I couldn’t find my pants, shirts, really anything. I’m so glad I bought this. The three hangers hold 15 pairs of pants total — that’s a lot less hangers! I have more space now." —Amanda L.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    27. An adjustable rack for keeping all of your under-the-sink items accessible and orderly.

    The adjustable rack
    Amazon

    Has an expandable rail, and four adjustable height levels.

    Promising review: "I was super impressed with the quality of this item. It did not fit under my sink as I was hoping, but that was my fault as I didn’t measure before ordering. But what’s great about this item is that it is adjustable in many ways and I was still able to finagle it to meet my needs. You are able to adjust the height of the shelves to three different heights. And then it also adjusts in width to your precise needs. " —staceym

    Get it from Amazon for $22.87 (available in two finishes).

    28. A kitchen rack to make storing your dishes, bowls, mugs, and glasses super simple, whether you keep 'em in your cabinet or on your countertops.

    Wayfair

    Promising review: "I love this little shelf! It gives me an extra 12 inches on my countertop, which is very helpful. It is very sturdy and built well. Easy to put together. So different than the usual black wire shelves that I’ve seen. Very sleek looking and timeless. I would highly recommend this product." —Yamazaki USA

    Get it from Wayfair for $25.99+ (available in two sizes).

    29. A clothing divider set to arrange your closet in an orderly ~fashion.~

    Gina Marie Originals / Etsy

    Promising review: "These are EXACTLY what I have been looking for to organize my closet. Not only are these functional, but they add some fun design to my closet. I was blown away by how incredibly fast these arrived." —Amber McCreary

    Get them from Gina Marie Originals on on Etsy for $16.20+.

    30. A four-tier shoe rack, so instead of spreading your shoes across your closet floor, only for them to be buried underneath everything else you put in your closet, you can give them their own neat space on this fancy schmancy rack.

    The shoe rack
    Samantha Wieder / BuzzFeed

    I actually don't remember how I managed to find shoes in my closet before getting this shoe rack (I say as if didn't literally just set this up three weeks ago, but oh well.) I kept my shoes neatly lined up at the bottom of my closet, but time and time again, would find myself going on a treasure hunt to find a pair I was looking for, because they somehow got buried underneath a sea of other random belongings I would throw into my closet for easy storage. This looks really neat after you set it up and place shoes on it, and I highly recommend it. I will say, this is much easier to set up if two people can do it together, but, it's not impossible to set up alone. It may take a bit more time, but it can be done with a bit of patience!

    Get it from Amazon for $22.87+ (available in two colors).

    31. A makeup organizer to place your brushes and cosmetics on the top, and then utilize the drawers at the bottom for things like jewelry, medication, hair accessories, or just additional makeup items that didn't fit at the top.

    The makeup organzier
    Samantha Wieder / BuzzFeed

    At first I wasn't sure how I felt about this. Based off the picture, I thought the whole thing was either one-piece or the top organizer and the drawers snapped together, which isn't the case. You can put the top piece on top of the drawers, but just know it doesn't snap together. Anyways, I've come to love this. Not only do I keep makeup and brushes on the top part, I also use some extra room in it for Band-Aids, cotton swabs, and a nail clipper. I store my headbands as well as various medications in the bottom drawers. It's so much easier to store my cosmetics in here than having to rummage through a messy makeup pouch!

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    32. A hanger stacker so you can keep your unused hangers in one clean spot, so when you DO need a hanger, you don't have to spend a million and one minutes untangling them.

    amazon.com

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $18.49.

    33. A two-tier shelf to add some sleek decor into your living space WHILE serving as a cute spot to store kitchen or bathroom items. We love a multi-purpose product!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I recently remodeled my kitchen and was looking for something that would maximize my counter space. After researching several different options I chose this one. I am very pleased with this product. The clean and simple design make it nearly invisible, and organizes all my coffee supplies neatly in a convent place. The cost is reasonable and material adequate for small items, but the best thing is how it de-clutters the counter top. I recommend this item without reservation." —Frances I Pizzulo

    Get it from Amazon for $21.20+ (available in two styles).

    34. A pack of vacuum bags for storing clothing items you're not planning on wearing in a given season, and when you want less clutter in your closet! These don't create the same amount of bulk other storage bags would, so they're good to store under your bed!

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "WHY didn't I buy these vacuum storage bags sooner?? I've only put them into several posts, and scrolled through the before + after review photos a million times, thinking 'man that would really help with my closet.' But it wasn't until I gazed in horror at the volume of sweaters I need to somehow store in my overflowing closet before unpacking my summer clothes that I FINALLY hit 'add to cart.'

    I chose the large size (as opposed to the biggest size, called 'jumbo') because it seemed easier to move and store — jumbo is probably perfect for bedding, duvets, etc! And just one large bag was plenty to store nine or 10 *very* large winter sweaters — all collapsed down to a fraction of their size. And it was surprisingly effortless, too! I didn't feel like breaking out the vacuum, so I just used the included hand pump, and it took maybe three minutes max to pump out the air and shrink the bag before replacing the cap — easy peasy! And no danger of re-inflation. My closet game is forever changed!!! All I can say is thank you Maitland, for actually taking your own advice for once. —Maitland Quitmeyer. BuzzFeed Editor

    Get them from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in five sizes).

    35. A pan rack that you are definitely gonna thank yourself for buying. The struggle of having to dig through all of your pans just to find the right one is now a thing of the past.

    The pan rack
    Amazon

    This can hold up to five pans with vertical installation and four pans with horizontal installation.

    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 rearrange 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 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.

    36. Shelf dividers to help you better utilize the space in your closet. Rather than cluttering all your things together, use these babies to organize and manage your belongings.

    The shelves
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I added these to my closet recently to organize my jeans, and I love them. My two stacks of jeans now stay orderly no matter how many I pull out from the bottom of the pile. It's great." —Abby Kass, BuzzFeed Editor

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $20.99.

    37. An over-cabinet towel bar that'll give you an actual spot to hang your hand towels, dish towels, wash cloths, etc. rather than just leaving them to carelessly hang around on the nearest surface.

    The towel bar hanging over a cabinet
    Amazon

    Features a non-absorbent foam backing to protect your counters.

    Promising review: "There was really no place in my kitchen to hang dishtowels, except for the oven handles. I got one of these to try on the cabinet door. The brushed finish is sort of neutral, and does not stand out. The first one worked out so well that I ordered another 14-inch and two of the next smaller size, so that I can now hang four dish towels (or dish cloths) without using the oven. I am very happy with these, wish I had gotten them sooner." —Mamachills

    Get it from Amazon for $10.38.

    38. Bed risers – they'll allow you to create more space to stow away storage bins filled with clothes and other belongings.

    The bed risers
    Amazon

    Comes with four small risers, and four large risers — you can use just the small risers to elevate your bed 3 inches, just the large risers to elevate your bed 5 inches, or combine the two to elevate your bed 8 inches.

    Promising review: "These bed risers couldn't have been easier to use. No sliding around on the hardwood floor and the bed was very stable. The risers worked as advertised and I am completely satisfied." —Steve Parsons

    Get a pack of eight from Amazon for $18.99.

    39. A rack for storing plates, bakeware, pans, lids, or whatever else you want, so your kitchen feels less cluttered in an instant.

    The metal rack  with eight spaces for items
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I'm using this in my cabinet to hold my cutting boards/cookie sheets. Much more convenient than having them stacked on top of each other and having to dig through the pile every time. Product is sturdy and seems to be built well." —Danielle

    Get it from Amazon for $13.80+ (available in five finishes).
