    1. An over-the-door laundry bag for easy hamper access that doesn't take up floor space. And that means fewer of your dirty ensembles end up on the chairs your guests were hoping to sit on.

    Promising review: "I live in an apartment and have this hanging behind my bathroom door using two heavy-duty command hooks. It's a great space saver and since the canvas is fairly thick, it's sturdier and more discreet and stylish than the mesh or nylon laundry bags. And the zipper on the bottom allows me to empty it without having to take it off the door." —Jose and Jess

    Get it from Amazon for $18.22+ (available in two colors).

    2. A cable box that'll keep your cords safe, organized, and out of sight. No more worrying about cables overheating or tripping on your tangled, charging cords!

    Promising review: "Does exactly what it's supposed to do. Keeps the power strip and all the connected power cables out of sight, neat and organized. The only challenge I had was the need to unplug everything to put the power strip inside the box and then re-route the power cables into the box. Once done though, I no longer found myself stepping on or kicking the power cords on the floor. This keeps them nice and neat and out of the way." —Mitchell Bell

    Get it from Amazon for $15.98.

    3. A pinewood cord holder because reaching for the mess of cables under your desk every time you need to charge your phone, laptop, camera, or ring light is a painful exercise your lower back didn't sign up for. It can hold up to five cords *and* doubles as a coaster so you can multitask in peace.

    Heavite is a small shop based in Sacramento, California hand-carving home essentials to perfection.

    Promising review: "I love this cord organizer/holder! It's heavy enough so the cords don't drag it off the table, and it looks great. The extra top surface to set a coffee cup or a glass on is genius, and the craftsmanship is superb." —Lara

    Get it from Heavite on Etsy for $35 (available in four finishes).

    4. A pack of vacuum-seal bags to help to tidily store any bulky comforters, clothes, and coats as the seasons change. Why overwhelm your closet? It's going through enough as it is.

    Promising review: "I used to store seasonal clothing in plastic bins. No more! It’s amazing how much these bags compress. Really saves closet space. Plus, you can see what’s in them without opening multiple bins. I packed RV bedding (pillows/comforter) in one jumbo bag." —Mary

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in four pack sizes).

    5. A dual under-the-cabinet trash system so you can hide your trash away but also make use of the empty space under your sink growing cobwebs. Easy install means you'll definitely be ready for garbage day — even if it's today!

    Promising review: "In our kitchen, we didn't want the trash can sitting out for everyone to see and we didn't have a pull out cabinet. So, we decided to get this to install under one cabinet. It was a bit tough to knock out shelves and install this, but once said and done, I'm really glad we took a chance and got this. We use one for trash and the other for recycling and regular trash bags fit in them just fine. Great way to keep the kitchen looking good while also having an easy way to pull out the trash when needed." —stephanie

    Get it from Amazon for $82.99+ (available in three colors).

    6. A behind-the-door storage cabinet if you're in need of a makeshift kitchen pantry or bathroom medicine cupboard but don't have the floor space to actually add one. This will instantly declutter your home while also concealing your stored goods behind a closed door.

    reviewer image of the behind-the-door storage cabinet filled with medicine bottles and first aid essentials

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this cabinet! Our pantry is small so I had spices, oils, and other condiments in our kitchen cabinets. This cabinet allowed me enough room to store all of that, which emptied two of our smaller cabinets for pots and pans. Not only did it give me two extra cabinets to use in my kitchen, but I also have much better access and visibility to spices and other things." —BJ

    Get it from Amazon for $189.99+ (available with or without a mirror).

    7. A pack of two adjustable under-the-bed organizers for storing anything that refuses to fit in your overstuffed closet. And you'll be able to keep everything organized with their adjustable dividers.

    reviewer image of clothes packed into three compartments of the under bed storage containers

    Promising review: "These storage bins saved my marriage! I was finally able to organize all the T-shirts my husband refuses to get rid of from 20+ years of beer league sports, 5Ks, and other events. The clear tops are a plus, so he can SEE what shirts are in there. Heaven forbid he have to move something to see anything! We were getting pretty close to filing papers over his enormous amount of clutter, but these storage containers have organized not only the mess, but our hearts." —Jess

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

    8. An organizational tower because maybe the best way to hide mess is actually to not have any?,

    Promising review: "This is exactly what I needed for my art supplies! It is sturdy, and the cart rolls very well. It also has two locks on the back wheels if you choose to lock it in place. I have no issues with this set at all. It is reasonably priced for what you get. The drawers are surprisingly roomy. I have a lot of art supplies and except for my longest paintbrushes, everything else fits well." —karen

    Get it from Amazon for $41.66+ (available in three colors).

    9. A set of drawer organizers that'll help keep your socks, bras, scarves, and more from overflowing and taking over your bedroom floor.

    The set includes four bins: one with six cells for scarves and tights, eight square cells for underwear, seven wide cells for bras, and 24 small cells for socks.

    Promising review: "I love these things, they’re so versatile. I have them all over: drawers, closet shelves, cabinets. I use them for more than just underwear too. I use them for dry art supplies in open shelves and just about anywhere else I need to organize." —Kindle Mac

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97 (available in seven colors).

    10. A tea bag organizer with six roomy drawers so your mint, English breakfast, and lavender teas aren't sprawled across your kitchen counters or ballooning in your cabinets.

    Promising review: "Perfect tea organizer. I wanted to get my tea bags out of the boxes and not have to sift through the cabinets every time I made tea. This is perfect. Takes up minimal space on my counter and holds plenty of tea bags." —Deanna Sambucci

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in three colors and styles).

    11. A minimalistically modern litter box cover that doubles as an end table. Solving an unsightly issue with a storage opportunity? Now that's adulting as a pawrent.

    Promising review: "It looks great, is sturdy and well-designed, and my cat did not hesitate to use her litter inside it." —Claire Natalie

    Get it from Cat and Wood on Etsy for $177.

    12. A sleek dual outlet cover and power strip so you can consolidate all those hideous wires and plug them into one convenient (and hidden) place.

    Promising review: "I don't write reviews unless a product is really great. And this is one of the best little inventions to come into my life recently! I use it behind my bed as we have an adjustable bed and every time I would raise it, it would hit the plugs in the outlet and pull them out. If I pulled the bed away from the wall, the pillows would fall to the floor. I could not come up with a solution until I found the Sleek Socket! It's amazing! So easy to set up. I even bought another one for my family room. And it hides all of the ugly cords. I have already recommended this product to my friends." —Connie Wigmore

    Get it from Amazon for $23.95+ (available in five sizes).

    13. A narrow cart to help you turn a teeny tiny space into usable storage space. This three-tiered rolling cart can be used in your kitchen as a makeshift pantry OR put it between your washer/dryer to be used for storing detergent and dryer sheets.

    Promising review: "I'll be honest, I thought the price was ridiculous for a little plastic cart. But let me tell you, it's worth it. It pays for itself the minute you load everything onto it and you see how much space it saves. I got half of my laundry room shelf back! And that's a big deal in a small apartment. I'd absolutely recommend this cart. It's durable and made of plastic so if any chemicals leak, it won't ruin anything or leak onto the floor. Couldn't be happier with it!" —Diana Krupa

    Get it from Amazon for $50.98.

    14. A storage ottoman perfect for sitting down to untie your shoes and then promptly tossing your shoes inside of. Hide away toys, blankets, and more while creating extra seating!

    Get it from Amazon for $52.99+ (available in five colors).

    15. A stackable two-tier sliding basket drawer because your under-the-sink cabinet doesn't have to be a cluttered mess of half-empty all-purpose cleaners. And this way, you'll have space to keep your toilet paper, so you won't be stuck in a sticky situation when the roll you're currently using runs out.

    Promising review: "This was an amazing purchase! I'm so happy with these stackable drawer organizers. I transformed my bathroom from an utter mess to an organized delight that just makes my life SO much easier. I have a lot of small bathroom items (moisturizers, lotions, body sprays, etc.), and I have no drawers, so I had to find a solution. I love the smaller upper drawer; it houses small things I could never find. They're very well made and a cinch to assemble (took me five minutes). Plus they're really cute! Very happy with these!" —x__tina

    Get it from Amazon for $23.77+ (available in five colors).

    16. A stackable storage container with a clear window so you don't have to tear through each one to figure out where your hats, blankets, or sweaters are.

    reviewer image of two light blue mDesign fabric storage boxes on top of a closet

    Promising review: "These boxes were the perfect fit for storing seasonal clothing in my daughter's closet. They were so easy to pop up into position, and the sides are sturdy and stand up on their own without anything in the box. The window in front is a great addition, as I can see what is in the box. The best part for me is that the lid of the box is attached in the back. I would absolutely buy more of these if I needed more storage." —Luna

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in 14 colors).

    17. A multipurpose lift-top coffee table whose extra storing potential means a hiding place for all of your remotes, expired batteries, random screws, and other odds-and-ends that would usually clutter up the top of your table.

    Get it from Two Buy Four on Etsy for $625+ (available in three wood types and finishes).

    18. A traditional Shoji room divider to help divide your living room into temporary sections: the craft section, the gym section, the no-one-has-time-to-clean-this-section section.,

    Promising review: "I really wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about this divider only because I live in a rather larger studio with about 9- to 10-foot ceilings, but I have to say, this room divider breaks up my apartment perfectly! And it looks GREAT! There was zero assembly, it’s lightweight, and well-made. I am so happy." —Amanda

    Get it from Amazon for $88+ (available in seven sizes and two colors).

    19. A sturdy gift wrap organizer so random gift bags, ribbons, and rolls of wrapping paper aren't cascading out of your storage closet every time you go in to grab some toilet paper. With more than five compartments, organizing all your gifting paraphernalia just got a little easier.

    Promising review: "This product really did the trick for all of my gift wrapping stuff (I never realized how much I had LOL). This product held 13 rolls of paper, 18 gift bags (a few really large bags had to be folded), 10 bows, and a very large stack of multicolored tissue paper. The fabric is very durable and the zipper was easy to close. The handle makes it easy to carry. And while it could easily fit under a bed, I have mine standing in a corner of the closet I use for crafts, and it stands nicely, too. I might buy another one to hold all of my Space Bags/ vacuum seal storage bags, too. Well worth the price." —Annessa Mortensen

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95+ (available in three colors).

    20. A steel under-the-table storage cart perfect for hiding away all the things you use during the day, so your living room can go back to being a living room for movie night.

    Also consider storing these under your coffee table if your couch is a little too low to the ground!

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these baskets. At first I bought two of them and once I received them, I decided I needed another one. Right now we keep our board games and educational stuff for my son in them underneath our coffee table in the living room. I also have one extra one that I'm going to be using for the top of my fridge to organize all the clutter. These are very durable and can fit a lot of stuff in them. Love this buy!" —Jen

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

They are extremely thin and lightweight, so they save space. And I love that they have multiple hooks and bars and, of course, non-slip shoulders. This allows you to hang up pretty much anything without it moving around or falling off, and shirts hang nicely without getting those awful stretch marks on the shoulders!
