    Time for an extreme home makeover.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. An elastic organizer can detangle the huge ball of cords and chargers tumbling around in your bag.

    Promising review: "I used to be like you. Wake up, blindly shower, maybe make some eggs if you have any energy left after those other chores. Weren't you planning on going to the gym this morning? Ugh, sorry health, lifting all the hard drives and other electronics from one bag and putting them in the other will have to do again, because it takes forever to get everything I need later in the day across the border from pack to duffle. Grid-It is like a Nexus pass for bags. Cross packs in seconds securely and hassle-free. You will be amazed by the gear combos you can pack on just one of these. I carry envelopes and stamps in the zip-up pocket on the back now and get a weird amount of admiration for keeping such old-school yet extremely relevant supplies on hand for friends or passers-by." —anonymous

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in nine colors).

    2. A hanger stacker because frankly, there's no other way to store unused hangers without creating chaos.

    Putting them in a bin only MAKES THEM ANGRY. (See before photo for proof.)

    Promising review: "Working in retail for a million years, I know how amazing these can be in keeping your life less chaotic! I put off ordering for months, and I'm mad at myself that I did, because these beat a box of hangers hands down! I ordered two — one for dress/shirt hangers and one for skirt/pant hangers. They arrived today, seem to be made of the same metal that I've used in retail stores, appear to be sturdy, and are super easy to assemble! It comes with all the hardware and tools for assembly — a great buy!" —KatieLee333

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    3. A tea bag organizer so you can throw out half empty tea boxes that are cluttering up the cupboards.

    This organizer can store and organize 100+ tea bags. There are 12 clear, removable bins for easy viewing and selection!

    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.

    4. A set of air-tight storage containers to turn your pantry from a Pinterest fail to a Pinterest win.

    Each five-piece set includes one tall container (2.0 qt/2.3 liters), one medium container (1.5 qt./1.7 liters), two small containers (0.9qt/1.0 liter), and one mini container (0.35qt/0.38 liter)!

    Promising review: "Love this set! It's pretty enough to set on my countertops and keeps my frequently used food items close at hand. The ULTIMATE test: after finding no product out there to keep my brown sugar from clumping and hardening, I put it in one of the medium containers. It is SOFT and FRESH! I highly recommend these canisters — pretty, practical, and they WORK! A+" —Kristen B.

    Get a five-piece set from Amazon for $35.97+. (Heck, get some chalkboard labels while you're at it.)

    5. A sturdy, stackable shoe rack that'll make the entryway less of a disaster zone.

    Each three-tier rack can hold up to nine pairs of shoes.

    Promising review: "This was SUPER easy to put together — it literally took me longer to open the box than it did for me to put the shelving together! I originally bought three and loved the look of them so much that I bought another three! It now holds ALL of our shoes in an organized row in our foyer, and now there's no clutter or mess in any of our closets. It also reminded me of ALL OF THE SHOES I own, and it's helped me to curb my shoe spending since I can now see exactly what I own! SO HAPPY with this purchase." —Joanna Kim

    Get a three-tier rack from Amazon for $29.99.

    6. An over-cabinet hair care station, because precious time in the morning should be spent detangling your hair, not your hair dryer.

    Promising review: "This product did exactly what I needed it to. Before, all my items were in a drawer and the cords were a pain, but this metal basket minimized clutter, kept things organized and separate, and it also looks nice. It fits two of my blow dryers, a flat iron, and a curling wand. The bars are adjustable as well. Worth the buy." —Alyssa Jewell

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99 (available in seven finishes).

    7. A stackable can rack for keeping non-perishable foods organized and easily accessible.

    This rack can store up to 36 cans of varying sizes!

    Promising review: "This can rack organizer is a great product that makes storing cans in a cupboard so much easier. Before we had this product, we were stacking the cans in rows, which was fine but hard to see what you still had. Every time you take a can, the next can rolls to the front. This rack saves us time and space and makes our seven-can soup recipe so much easier to make. I recommend this product to anyone who stores and uses canned foods often and for those looking to improve on storage and organization of their pantry." —Jason and Kelle

    Get it from Amazon for $24.87.

    8. A set of stackable two-tier sliding basket drawers to completely transform the inside of your bathroom cabinet.

    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 $24.87 (available in two colors).

    9. A wall-mount broom holder, because your other option is to shove all the cleaning tools into a corner and call it a day.,

    This holder has five spring-loaded slots that can be adjusted to fit any handle size and six retractable hooks!

    Promising review: "These broom holders are amazing. We bought two (put one in our laundry room utility closet and one in our garage) and love them so much we bought a third! Super easy to install, and super easy to use. Love that there are also hooks that fold out! Keeps our long-handled items so much neater and easier to reach. Fantastic item and highly recommend!" —JennN.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.97.

    10. A set of interlocking bins for sorting out small miscellaneous items in your drawers.

    Promising review: "Love it. What a difference it made to our junk drawer! Before things were so hard to find and falling behind the drawer, now the same amount of stuff is in there, but we can actually find what we need. Wish I did this earlier. Super configurable." —Alaina

    Get an eight-piece set from Amazon for $13.72.

    11. A ventilated cable box designed to hide away unsightly cords, wires, and power stripes.

    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. 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 $19.97.

    12. A two-tier expandable shelf that'll fit perfectly under the sink.

    You can also adjust the height of the shelves!

    Promising review: "As a professional organizer, I have purchased this item several times to solve the problem of many clients' under-the-sink organizing dilemmas. It's easy to assemble, made of sturdy material, and shelves can be adjusted to clear the plumbing. It solves 95% of the situations people face when trying to better organize the space under their sink. It works the best for bathrooms where clients can add plastic bins or baskets to corral their many personal hygiene products when bathroom vanity drawers are not an option." —Susan Rupe

    Get it from Amazon for $19.87 (available in two colors). Check out some storage baskets here!

    13. A spice rack so you don't have to dig through the entire cabinet to find the cayenne pepper.

    This rack comes with 18 bottles and 48 spice labels!

    Promising review: "This spice rack is just what I needed. The jars are great, and the plastic covers have holes and a bigger opening for measuring. It made my mess of a spice cabinet look great! I have them all alphabetized, which of course, my family thinks is great. If it is not on the rack, then we need it. No more buying double because we could not see in the cabinet." —Debra Young

    Get it from Amazon for $24.97.

    14. A two-piece makeup storage set you definitely need if you've forgotten what color your vanity is (because it's always covered with beauty products).

    What is it like to have actual space around the bathroom sink? Only organized people would know.

    Promising review: "It's bigger than it looks! It held all of my makeup. I like how the top detaches. It keeps my bathroom neat, and it helps to keep you from having to search through a makeup bag just to find what you want! Also, the drawers come completely out, so I set them out as I'm doing my makeup. This thing is cool. Five stars!" —Alison Baker

    Get it from Amazon for $14.29+ (available in three colors).

    15. A plastic woven storage basket to corral anything and everything in. You'll look like an organization pro without making a lot of effort.

    Promising review: "These plastic storage baskets were perfect for my bathroom closet update. They are deep enough to hold my toiletries and other items upright, the baskets are easily cleaned, and I made cute labels to go on the front to match the clean look that these bins gave overall. They are sturdy and can be transferred easily from shelf to shelf." —L. Basford

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in three colors and three sizes).

    16. A bag insert that'll help you get your life together. No more missing the subway because you couldn't dig up your wallet in time!

    It'll also be easier to move all your essentials from bag to bag.

    Promising review: "This is a fabulous organizer; well-made and easy to slip in and out of various purses. Pockets are sewn nicely, and the fabric/material is just the right weight for keeping things where they belong, without a lot of shifting within the pockets. I would absolutely recommend this product to anyone who has a hard time staying organized or finding things in 'the abyss' of their purse! A place for everything, and everything in its place!" —Fire Daniels

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in three sizes and 23 colors).

    17. A cabinet lid rack and pan organizer rack, because trying to pull out a glass lid from a heap of pans is like playing a dangerous game of Jenga.,

    Promising review: "This product may have saved our marriage! A simple solution to a complex problem. Our cabinet that held the pans and lids turned into an avalanche of despair every time we wanted to use a pan. We gave up on trying to find the correct lid. Now we have a simple stack of pans in the cabinet with biggest on the bottom and smallest on top with their corresponding lids hanging in the same order from the door on this nifty organizer. My wife is still wondering what to do with the extra time and lack of stress every time she goes to grab a pan or lid." —AmosJK

    Get them from Amazon: lid rack for $15.99 and pan rack for $14.77

    18. A shoe rack with a zippered cover will consolidate and conceal your massive footwear collection.

    Each rack can hold 27 pairs of shoes!

    Promising review: "This rack has been probably one of my best choices ever! It has alleviated the 'shoes everywhere' mess and centralized my footwear in a convenient area. I am a shoe freak, especially with summer sandals, so this fit the bill perfectly. I have over 30 pairs on this rack and still have two empty shelves (the factor here is because sandals are lightweight and each pair can be stacked, making room for more). I got rid of the over-the-door rack which freed up the bedroom door, so it opens and closes much easier now. Good product!" —J. Kinder

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in four colors).

    19. A set of packing cubes so you don't have to rummage through a freshly packed suitcase just to grab one sweater.

    Promising review: "I liked these so much, I purchased another set! I love how well these organize my clothing in my bag. No more shuffling through and accidentally unfolding all my clothing looking for a specific item. And if, god forbid, your luggage falls open or if TSA decides they need to look inside, everything still stays organized. Such a simple item but really changes everything. I love that they have partial mesh so that you can see what's what but are not completely mesh, so they keep their shape." —G. Green

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $22.99 (available in eight colors).

    20. A set of underwear dividers that'll make you want to show off how neat your drawers are to everyone.

    Each set comes with four multipurpose crates (five-cell, six-cell, eight-cell, and 20-cell).

    Promising review: "So I ordered a set of these for Christmas for my teenage daughter and once they arrived, I had serious concerns my wife was going to switch name tags on the wrapping because she liked them so much. So I bought her a set, as well. This morning, I was forced to look at several neatly organized drawers in a wardrobe then shown a few others without these organizers. So here I am buying more. They are very simple, lightweight, collapsible organizers that are hugely popular at my house." —R. Watkins

    Get them from Amazon for $12.99 (available in three colors).

    21. A set of foldable storage baskets to stash stuff that can't be hung on a hanger (such as leggings, small leather goods, gloves, etc.).,

    Promising review: "These have been a lifesaver for storage! We used the whole pack to put in our closet, so we don’t have to have a dresser for things like socks, underwear, leggings, shorts, etc." —Mother of Wildlings

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $20.48.

    You, vowing to organize every inch of your home:
