    Promising review: "My daughter is using this to store her makeup and toiletries. It was easy to assemble and is very sturdy.

    Get it from Amazon for $18.06.

    5. A bold, heavy duty pan organizer because your cast iron skillet needs a little more attention than the light layer of oil you've rubbed in it. Capable of holding up to five pans, this guarantees more cooking space for you!

    The red Heavy Duty Pan Organizer holding five red pans

    Promising review: "I have owned multilevel pan storage rack in the past, however this is by far the most solid and well made one I have ever seen. Most are just wire hardly thicker than a coat hanger but this one is over a quarter inch of solid steel with an enameled coating to protect your pans. The spacing between each level is wider than average to accommodate almost any frying pan I've seen. And unlike any similar product I've seen it can be fastened down to the cabinet bottom so the whole thing doesn't move or tip over when you remove a pan. And the fasteners are included." —PhotoGraphics

The drawers are surprisingly roomy, and fit standard pens and pencils with ease. Overall, I'm super happy with this purchase!" —Megan McEvers

    "These are nice drawers. I bought them to be used in place of mini cubes in a shelf for my makeup. I'm impressed with the quality and love the color. I will be ordering more." —Tammy Clark

    11. A pair of golden cactus-shaped bookends to add a desert glow where there was once just a mound of books.

    Promising review: "These bookends are fabulous! They are super stylish and are a fraction of the cost of the bookends I saw at big chain stores. They hold up a good-sized stack of books without toppling over. If you’re looking for cute bookends, look no further!" —Blythe Dallet

    A set of nesting trays being used as a jewelry holder and coaster
    Open Spaces

    Promising review: "These trays are very cute and also seem to be of high quality. I love the variation in material so that while the shape pulls them together visually, they aren't too 'match-y match-y.' I use the large one to hold our TV remote and a set of round coasters which fit perfectly in the end; the medium as a bed side coaster for my water glass and also my lip balm and hair clip; and the small one to hold my frequently used jewelry." —Taylor R.

    Get it from Open Spaces for $42 (available in three colors).

    15. A set of eight colorful bag clips so you can keep your food fresh. No more rolling up half-empty bags of chips!

    Get it from Amazon for $7.49 (also available in two other styles).

    16. A pack of purple nonslip velvet hangers that take up less space in your closet, which means you can hang more in there. And with swivel hooks, you spend less time fighting your clothes and more time buying new ones.

    Purple velvet hangers laid out on a table

    Promising review: "These hangers are beautiful and functional, I just love them! They hold my clothes on the hanger to an extent I didn't think was possible. I can hang some of my sweaters and they don't get pulled out of shape because the velvet grips the fabric and the garment's weight is more gently distributed. I can't explain what a difference these made in my closet. Everything from tank tops to skirts to sweaters hangs beautifully on these. I use them exclusively, I threw out all my old plastic hangers. The rose gold color of the hooks is beautiful and gleams gently, adding some eye-catching sophistication to my closet. I like for my room to be pretty and photogenic, and these fit right in. I highly recommend them." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in black and pink).

    17. A set of reusable food storage bags to help keep your veggies (and the planet) safe.

    Three sizes of the Goodful reusable zipper locked bags in a fridge with a banner that reads "refrigerator and freezer safe"

    Promising review: "I used these bags to store vegetables that have been washed and cut in the refrigerator. These bags are used at least two times a day, every day. In these bags I store cut carrots, onions, cucumbers and celery.

    I have replaced some of my plastic ziplock bags with these reusable bags. While I reuse many of my ziplock bags, I can only reuse them a couple of times before they tear, become discolored or just stop closing. These reusable bags I have used a few times, and they continue to work and look great. The seal on the bags are extremely strong and tight, and I have no fear of the items spilling out. In the long run they will save me money, and in my own way, I can help save our planet." —J. Manchester

    Get it from Goodful on Amazon for $11.04+ (available in three pack sizes).

    18. A daily to-do list planner with sections for listing tasks, food and fitness goals, and important times to remember. Get an equally nice and colorful pen, and stay on top of the things that matter.


    Promising review: "I really like this planner/to-do list. It helps me keep up with everything I need to do and makes me feel accomplished. The list has plenty of space for me to add to it as things come up, and the other sections help me keep up with times I need to remember, my eating habits, and water intake. It helps me feel really productive at the end of the day. I also like being able to circle the day of the week and write in the date so no pages go to waste. Good quality paper and a cute design. I'm satisfied with the purchase because it gets used everyday!" —Briana M. Jefferson

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in four colors).

    19. A fun faux leather desk organizer for storing your office essentials. You can even use it as a cubby for your phone while you work. No distractions here!


    Promising review: "I cannot rave enough about this. I knew it was exactly what I wanted from the first time I saw it on Amazon. I wanted to have one organizer on my desk at work instead of multiple ones. The great thing about this is that it comes in so many different colors. I have even thought about buying more to change with the seasons. The stitching on it adds a nice decorative touch, and the little drawer is handy to hold things that I only use occasionally. I have received numerous compliments on it as well." —lisa schubert

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in 18 colors).

    20. A metal and wood envelope mail holder because your kitchen counter deserves to be used for meal prep and not as a catch-all. Mount this in your entryway, and drop your mail in until you're ready to sort through it!

    "I love this antique-looking spice rack! All of my friends thought it was actually a real antique! It's a lovely pistachio green color and can hold a lot more spices than most spice racks that I saw in my search for one. It's sturdy and works perfectly in my kitchen!" —Elisa

    Get it from Wayfair for $48.99 (originally $79.50).

    24. A kitchen cart that can be used to store wine, fruit, utensils, and more. Wheel it over to the sink to use the countertop to chop freshly washed veggies and wheel it back over to the corner when you don't need it.

    The red Haviland Kitchen Cart with Stainless Steel Top being used for storage in a kitchen

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE this. Fits nicely in a small passage in my NYC apartment. I need the extra counter space but love that I can use this for some extra storage and decor in my limited space too. I just take the tray off the top and roll it on over to my teeny tiny kitchen when I need it!! I hosted my first Thanksgiving in 2019 for friends and family and was able to use this to ceremoniously roll out the turkey too for some added fun!" —Ruth

    Get it from Wayfair for $116.99 (available in three colors).

    25. An accessory organizer you can mount to the wall and drape your scarves and necklaces from. It also has a basket that can be used for extra storage. Treat your accessories like the decor they are!

    The mint green mDesign Closet Wall Mount Men's Accessory Storage Organizer Rack holding jewelry, a scarf, and a purse

    Promising review: "Love it. It was just what I was looking for! I mounted it in my walk-in closet to hold all my jewelry. I put it low enough that I could store my rings in the basket and easily see them. Also storing my watches on top. I just can't say enough about this; it's great!" —Patrick Pflaumer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in eight colors).

    26. A bright, wall-mounted coat rack because your fall jacket is too cute to be tossed, unseen, onto your armchair.


    Promising review: "These came in very handy and at a good price. They are solid and provide lots of hanging space since they are tri-hook. And all without taking up much space at all. Each of them includes two little white buttons so you don't even see the heads of the screws. I put one in my bedroom closet attached to the backside of the door and the other in my hallway closet. Great for anything from heavy coats, belts, baseball caps, etc. I highly recommend them." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in two pack sizes and in eight colors).

    27. A storage bag originally made to keep any handmade quilts safe from dust and light exposure, but that can definitely be used to store other big blankets or coats.

    The turqouise Madam Sew Large Quilt Storage Bag storing blankets in a customer's closet

    Promising review: "I really like this storage bag! I put two queen size quilts in it, and they aren’t squeezed in tightly. My mom made the quilts, so I wanted to safely store them and I think this will work fine. The material the bag is made of is thin, but if you aren’t constantly moving it around or opening, it should hold up fine. The zipper is solid and easy to open/close. I will be ordering another one to store blankets for the summer!" —Mel P

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in two colors).

    28. A soft and scrunchable yellow hamper with handles so you can easily transport dirty clothes to be washed.

    The Soft Sided Scrunchable Round Laundry Hamper Yellow Dot from Room Essentials

    Promising review: "This hamper is sturdy and stands up on its on, but scrunched and wrinkled as described. I would buy again and recommend. Very cute and conveniently collapsible. And it's made of a durable, cleanable material." —Char

    Get it from Target for $10.

    29. A set of sticky notes to help you color-code your way into a more balanced and structured life. This set comes with notepads, highlight tabs, sticky notes, and 12 colorful Fineliner pens.

    The full Vicnova Large and Small Sticky Notes Set with Fineliner Color Pens Set

    Promising review: "This is a great little set! The various sized sticky notes come in a neatly bound hardcover book that fits perfectly in the pocket of my daily planner. The pens are equally good, especially for the price. If you’re like me and perhaps a little particular when it comes to organization and color coding, don’t hesitate to purchase these. The set of 12 vibrantly colored pens fit nicely inside an empty extra sleeve pocket in my A5 planner. Because they’re so compact, I did have a little trouble getting the caps off at first (weak hands), but with use, it’s much easier." —Breezy McD

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    30. A makeup organizer with slots for your lipstick and application brushes, and drawers for your blush, foundation, and more. How you store your makeup can be *just* as fun as the looks you make with it!

    The purple Ikee Design Jewelry & Cosmetic Storage Display Boxes filled with makeup and propped next to three bottles of perfume

    Promising reviews: "I LOVE this product! It comes in two separate pieces, but the top fits perfectly on top of the drawers. It's a great size, and fits allllmost all of my makeup. Great for people who are starting out their makeup collection, but you can really fit a lot of products in the drawers. Fits great on bathroom counters, dressers, or a makeup counter! I definitely would recommend this product." —Jess Russo

    "This set is beautiful, well organized and convenient! Any girl with a makeup collection that's tired of using a stuffed makeup bag should DEFINITELY purchase this! So worth the money and you won't regret it." —Sil

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99 (available in 16 other size and color combinations).
