    1. An adjustable, non-slip lid holder to help you quickly locate the covers to all your pots.


    Promising review: “This is exactly what I need for my pot lids. They always seem too big for any other type of organizer. But being that this is adjustable, they fit perfectly. This organizer is also non-slip, so you don't have to chase it all over the cabinet to retrieve your lid.” —DeppLover

    Get it from Walmart for $15.

    2. A collapsible bread box so you can keep your loaves fresh while giving your kitchen an extra dose of style.


    The bread box is dishwasher-safe and BPA-free, and expands to fit various loaf sizes. It also features air vents you can adjust to keep your bread fresh and closes with magnetic snaps.

    Promising review: “I’ve been baking bread for quite a while now. And until I got this bread keeper, my bread would go stale in about three days, if I left it out. I could extend it to four days, if I put it in a plastic bag. But there would definitely be mold by the fifth day. But with this bread keeper, I've seemed to be able to keep bread fresh for over a week. The crust definitely gets soft. But there is no mold. And after about 10 days, it is only stale around the edges.” —Casen Davis

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

    3. An aluminum wall rack to make your cooking tools and pots easy to access.


    Promising review: “I bought this when we moved into our new house. It is useful and it could hold so many items. Because it can be installed in the wall, it saves more space, which helps us to save a lot of room in our kitchen.” —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon or $27.89.

    4. A plastic-bag holder which’ll finally allow you to keep all your leftover bags in one place.


    Promising review: "This is a great product, I really love it! Exactly what I was looking for and needed to keep my bags in a much nicer way and more accessible to us. We used to store extra bags in a bag hanging on the handle of the door — that always irritated me. So when I saw this way to store my bags, I was very excited. The product is a nice heavyweight wire that does not look cheap and doesn't move while hanging on the cabinet door due to the foam backing on the hangers." —Fur Kid Mom

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available in eight colors).

    5. A Simplehuman sink caddy so you won’t have to worry about giving counter space away to your sponges and dish brushes.


    Promising review: "I wanted a simple and inexpensive option to organize sponges and brushes because I was tired of leaving them either laying on the counter or digging in the sink for them. I came across this and took a chance; I'm so glad I did. This works perfect. It keeps the countertop clear and organizes the sponge/brush. We even use the extra sponge spot to keep our hand wash–only knives off to the side to avoid them accidentally going in the dishwasher. I've not run into suction issues. In fact I have to really work to get the suction cups off when I'm doing a regular full clean of the sink." —jicole24

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    6. A paper towel holder that includes a shelf you can use for storing dishwashing items, hand soap, and other necessities.


    Promising review:  "I am absolutely in love with this paper towel holder. It is not only great looking but so easy to use. No more tearing half the roll of paper of towels when you only want one. This really gives you only one towel. It is great for me since I am disabled. Best paper towel holder I've ever owned." —Cathie C.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.75.

    7. A tea bag organizer that holds over 100 bags so you won’t have to fight through your cabinets to find your favorite warm beverage.


    The organizer hold more than 100 tea bags.

    Promising review: "Do I really need a tea bag organizer? That's what I was thinking when I ordered this. And when I took it out of the box. And when I filled the first little bag holder. But as the pile of empty boxes grew larger, I knew the answer was yes, I do need a tea bag organizer. I was using a whole shelf and a half of jumbled tea boxes, which I had to sift through to look for a specific tea. In the end, I think this held about eight or nine boxes of tea bags (I crammed some of them). I am so happy that I got this!" —Sarah C.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    8. A tip-out tray set you can use the inside of faux drawers to hold sponges, scissors, or even those leftover sauce packets from takeout orders.


    The set includes one white 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 them from Amazon for $17.55.

    9. A revolving spice rack to store up to 16 different spices in the cutest way.


    The jar includes the spice rack and 16 pre-filled spice jars. The spice assortment varies and can include basil, thyme, parsley, marjoram, garlic salt, coriander, rosemary, oregano, and other spices. And each of the jars are labeled.

    Promising review: “This spice tower has become my go-to wedding gift. How can you go wrong with giving a fully stocked spice rack to a newly married couple!? I remember when I got married that was the one expense that blew my mind. Every time I went to cook a new dish or bake something it was $20 in spices alone because I had nothing! The rack is well-made, has good starter spice quality, and looks attractive on a counter top. I’d highly recommend it.” —Gabby 

    Get it from Amazon for $30.28.

    10. An over-the-cabinet door organizer for holding cutting boards, baking pans, or numerous other kitchen items.


    Promising review: "I have a small kitchen and anything that needs to be out in the open has to have its own spot — and the rack was the perfect solution to keeping my cutting boards out and organized. It fit over a cabinet door perfectly and now I have my cutting boards right where the need to be: next to the kitchen sink, without having to stuff them behind something or dig them out of the cabinets! The rack was easy to put together with a Philips screwdriver, took maybe four minutes — three of that was looking for the screwdriver!! The screws are secure, don't seem to be working loose at all with the rack being jostled when I take a board out or put one in or when the cabinet door is opened/closed." —OverRover

    Get it from Amazon for $14.47.

    11. A steel dish rack that includes a wineglass holder and is fingerprint-proof so you’ll never have to worry about any handprints messing up its sleek look.


    You can hang as many as four extra-large wine glasses from the glass holder. The rack also features a drainage system with a swivel spout, to keep water from flowing onto your countertop.

    Promising review: “After using this dish drainer for over eight months, we still love it! it drains so well. And it stays so much cleaner than any other dish rack I've owned, requiring very minimal care. Very occasionally, I remove the rack and spray the inside with a cleaner, such as Fantastik, then rinse. There is absolutely no evidence of rusting or any other problems. I would purchase it again!” —Dr. Beth

    Get it from Amazon for $79.

    12. An expandable bamboo cutlery drawer so your utensils will be oh-so easy to find.


    Promising review: "My utensil drawer has never stayed organized, so I gave this a try and I'm so glad I did. Everyone who opens the drawer now is so impressed by how neat it looks and how easy it is to find what you're looking for. The quality is great and I love the color. The expandable feature is really nice since it allows you to customize to fit your drawer. Make sure to measure first!" —Mindy Spacco

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available with five and seven compartments).

    13. A copper utensils caddy to easily reach your cooking tools while whipping up your latest tasty dish.


    Promising review: “These caddies were purchased for our new kitchen and they look amazing on the counter! They’re perfect for a pop of color without being too much. Their storage capacity is that of a standard holder.” —Kristen Hance

    Get it from Amazon for $20.

    14. A set of chalkboard labels you can place on plastic bins, spice bottles, and glass jars.


    Promising review: “These are awesome and make my pantry look orderly and gorgeous. They are easy to write on with pen. But ink never really dries, so they smudge easily. Other than that, I love the shapes and the appearance! They are exactly the look I was going for!” —Production Connoisseur

    Get an 80-pack of labels from Amazon for $7.95.

    15. A set of pump bottles to replace your plastic bottles, giving your counters a touch of elegance.


    The set includes two amber bottles, two pump tops, and two reusable chalk labels. 

    Promising review: “These are awesome. They are the right size for what I needed it for. I am using one for Listerine mouthwash, and this is the best thing. The pump is easy to use and very smooth with no dripping. I also liked that the pump is plastic, so I don't have to worry about it getting crusty or rusty with a few use. Even if the pump wears out, it would be easy to replace. These are a great buy.” —Janiksi

    Get them from Amazon for $15.75.

    16. A two-tier corner shelf for storing dishes or other items on your countertop.


    Promising review: “If you have wasted space inside your kitchen cabinets, these chrome corner shelves will definitely be worth your money! I purchased more after the ease of using the first one. They definitely do what they are intended to do. I can now open the cabinet and grab what is needed without the chance of something falling out! My cabinets look so organized now!” —Jpaws

    Get it from Walmart for $12.42.

    17. A pull-down spice rack to max out the vertical space in your kitchen and store small containers.


    Promising review: "THIS IS AMAZING. I'm so happy with this product. I was desperate for a way to organize all my baking things, all of which are painfully small and lead to mass clutter. Be careful when installing that you don't leave it too close to the edge or it won't pull down the whole way." —Abigail Greene

    Get it from Amazon for $17.39+ (available in two colors).

    18. A gorgeous salt cellar with a lid that holds your spoon when you want to sprinkle it on your own.

    Crate & Barrel

    Promising review: “This cellar has a great design and capacity. It feels durable and I love the look.” —Chef

    Get it from Crate & Barrel for $12.95.

    19. A lazy Susan spice rack you can place on a tabletop or in a cabinet to quickly access spices or other items.


    Promising review: “This spice rack is great. It is an affordable price and just what we needed to organize a crowded shelf. The tallest bottles won't fit on the bottom. But the dimensions posted make that obvious.” —David W

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    20. A set of labeled canisters that'll keep your pantry or countertop in order.

    West Elm

    The canisters should only be hand-washed. 

    Get them from West Elm for $24+ each.

    21. A microwave cart that’ll keep you from losing counter space and provide additional storage options beneath it for items like cookbooks, dishes, and even bakeware.


    Promising review: "This cart is great! It is compact but fits many items, freeing my counters and cabinets. It is very sturdy and strong and moves smoothly in its caster wheels. It's so easy to put together, too! It took me about 10 minutes. It is an excellent product!” —Gab

Get it from Amazon for $59.99.

    22. A mail organizer to make sure letters don’t steal too much space on your kitchen table or countertop.

    Promising review: “This mail organizer was exactly what I was looking for. We use it in our mudroom office to collect mail, coupons, business cards, and other items that usually end up on the counters. It is not only functional, but very trendy and will go with any décor. It also came beautifully packaged and would make a great housewarming gift.” —M Romano 

    Get it from Amazon for $25.97.

    23. A no-tools-needed two-tier shelf that'll get more use out of your kitchen corners.


    Promising review: "What you see is what you get. A nice, solid stainless-steel shelf. Looks great in my kitchen. In fact, after setting this one up, I ordered a second one to go on the other side of my stove. No tools were needed to assemble. Took about two minutes to put it together." —MascotRay

    Get it from Amazon for $23.19 (available in two shapes).
