    1. A purse organizer with enough pockets for all your daily necessities β€” it might even prepare you for the zombie apocalypse.

    Amazon

    It has a total of 13 pockets.

    Promising review: "This handbag organizer is the perfect accessory to prepare your purse for the zombie apocalypse. Load it up with all of your essentials, and keep them organized with the multiple compartments, zippers, and pockets. With more than a dozen pockets, there are places to store all of your necessities: lipstick, concealer, propane-powered flat iron, Band-aids. Then, when it's time to go, just grab the handbag organizer and slip it into whichever purse coordinates with your getaway outfit. Grab. And go!" β€”Mary Ellen

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in three sizes and 30 colors).

    2. A cutlery tray that'll take up very little horizontal space and make it super easy to grab an extra fork.

    Amazon

    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." β€”Kathleen Cooke

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    3. A loose setting powder for helping your foundation stay put, even after a sweaty workout.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "It's perfect!!! It comes with so much product, and the puff it comes with is pretty handy. The application is smooth. My makeup came out flawless. I set my makeup with this and worked out right after. THERE WAS NO SEPARATION, NO CREASING. This powder blessed me. GOD BLESS." β€”andrea

    Get it from Amazon for $6.64 (available in six shades).

    4. Or, a matte-finish setting spray to keep your makeup in place all day (or all night), no matter how hot or humid it is outside.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is the first time I've ever used a setting spray. But it was my daughter's graduation and 99 degrees outside. I sat outside for three hours in the heat! We went out to dinner and to the store before I finally got home to take off my makeup. I was a little shinier than before I left but very happy with this spray!" β€”Jess Y

    Get it from Amazon for $3.79.

    5. An RFID-blocking travel wallet so you can keep all your essentials (passport, currency, credit cards, boarding passes, etc.) easily accessible and in one place.

    Amazon

    Read more about RFID wallets and why you should get one.

    Promising review: "Was really helpful in keeping our valuables together while on our overseas honeymoon. Nice construction. Strong. Pockets are all adequate size for everything. Zipper functions well. Just an overall useful and well-made product for the price." β€”Tim Prilucik

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in 12 colors).

    6. A woven gadget organizer that'll secure all your electronics and cords so they're not crushed at the bottom of your backpack.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "If you are like me and need to keep things organized, then this little gem is for you. I keep it in my backpack so everything is not just sloshing around in there. It makes retrieving items a snap. You just pull the whole thing out and grab what you are looking for. It also keeps things from rubbing against other things." β€”Darrin Hyatt

    Get it from Amazon for $13+ (available in three colors and a larger size).

    7. A trunk organizer (with hook straps) to corral groceries in so they don't slide around in the back of your car.

    Amazon

    It can also be strapped into the back or front seat.

    Promising review: "I love this thing. It is super well-made and fits A TON of stuff. I'm using it basically as an emergency kit. I was able to fit literally anything I need in the event of an emergency, including a change of clothes (with shoes), toiletries, a blanket, makeup, snacks, and I still have room to toss shopping bags in while I'm out so they don't roll around in my trunk." β€”Erica Edwards

    Get it from Amazon for $23.97 (available in four colors).

    8. A cascading wall organizer for sorting out the mess of papers that would otherwise clutter up your desk.

    Amazon

    This can also be folded down for easy transport.

    Promising review: "So happy I found these. Perfect solution to the bills, reminders, and all that paperwork I just seem to accumulate and pile up on my kitchen counter. Not bulky but very sturdy, and the pockets can fit a lot. The bottom clear pocket is the perfect spot to put things you need to be reminded of before running out the door. I put my appointment reminders and daughter's school calendar in there. Love that I can grab it off the nail and go. I take it to work if I need to pay bills during lunch or call to make appointments, everything is there at my fingertips. I bought two and now I have my kitchen counter space back and all my bills and paperwork organized! A friend came over and saw them, she ordered some right then and there. Would also be good for kids' coloring books, stickers, and craft papers, etc. Think I will be ordering more!" β€”AmazonJunkie

    Get it from Amazon for $12.74+ (available in three colors).

    9. An acrylic makeup organizer so you can grab what you need in the morning without digging through a pile of products.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This makeup box is a total life saver. Before I used to keep all my makeup in a bag and it was always such a pain to find what I needed. This keeps everything separated and it is see-through so nothing can hide now! It is bigger than I expected and has a place for everything." β€”Tabby

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99.

    10. A box of rubber stoppers that'll prevent your earrings from accidentally popping out and getting lost.

    Amazon

    They work on both stud and wire earrings.

    Promising review: "My long, wired earrings were often getting caught in my long, curly hair and too often, I'd get home to see that I had lost one somewhere along the way. These little plastic backs work perfectly on my wired earrings. I haven't lost a single earring since buying these!" β€”KatyDid

    Get a 200-pack (100 pairs) from Amazon for $4.29. Or, check out sterling silver or 14K gold ones.

    11. A high-impact sports bra to give your boobs the support they need for jumping jacks, lunges, and jogs.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love these bras! I am a 38DD so finding a bra to support me every day, let alone at the gym, is very difficult. I love the way they fit. These bras are very comfortable and hold my breasts in during cardio when they seem to move the most without suffocating them. They wash well β€” their color hasn't faded (regular wash, low heat in the dryer), and the ability to remove the padding makes it much easier to put the pads back in place after drying. Glad I bought these!" β€”ReceyK

    Get it from Amazon for $9.98+ (available in sizes S-3XL and in 18 bra combinations in packs of two, three, four, or five).

    12. A set of packing cubes for helping you achieve the impossible β€” fitting all your clothes into one suitcase and having it look organized. Over-packers rejoice!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I recently went on an overseas trip where one of my legs was on an economy airline that charged insane fees for checked luggage. So in an attempt to do all carry-on, I borrowed these cubes from a friend. I was able to get eight (yes eight!) days of clothes into my carry-on bags with room to spare, thanks to these cubes. It even made security checks easy because I could pull out the smaller cube with my toiletries and just open it up with the plastic bag for my liquids resting inside with the other non-liquid items. As soon as I got back I ordered [these]. I will never go on another trip without them." β€”Utkevdawg

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $24.99 (available 10 colors).

    13. A shower curtain with mesh pockets so you can stop trying to fit all your bath products on the tub rim.

    Amazon

    It measures 70" x 72". Check out our review of this shower curtain!

    Promising review: "We are apartment living, so storage is always an issue, and the bathroom is no exception. No one in the household could take a shower without crash/boom as you're knocking something down sitting on a shelf or the bathtub rim. This is a game changer. There are so many pockets with so much room in each, I actually have space left over. My husband's back scrubber, my shampoo and hair care, my daughter's bubble baths, bath floofies, all fit with room to spare. And the pockets are all a nice height so I'm not crouching to find anything. The curtain is clear so I didn't have to change the 'pretty' one for decorative purposes, and it doesn't affect light that way either. Either way, I am super pleased, and I am keeping this link handy in case another one is EVER needed." β€”goodnite.graci

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    14. A pair of silicone hooks that'll stop your glasses from slipping off your face.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I knew the best way to test these out would be to wear them to work (at a BBQ restaurant) where I'm constantly moving up and down and getting a little sweaty. My glasses never moved! It was amazing, these are a must-buy! They're very discrete which I like. From the side view, you can't even tell they're there at all! It takes a few seconds to adjust when you put your glasses on, but when you get them where you like it, your glasses won't move until you take them off. They don't bother my ears or pull my hair." β€”Chadbdot

    Get 20-pairs from Amazon for $6.99.

    15. An accordion-style pan and pot lid organizer to avoid playing a risky game of Jenga every time you need to retrieve a certain skillet.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I'm using this as pictured on a shelf in the pots and pans cupboard for my many skillets. It's so much easier to get the right size skillet without a bunch of clatter. My extra-large skillets are in a different cupboard only because the shelf height is limited. But this would accommodate the largest I have." β€”C M

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99. Or, check out a cheaper option.

    16. A hanging shoe shelf for a neat way to display your massive footwear collection.

    amazon.com

    Each organizer can store up to 30 pairs of shoes.

    Promising review: "This thing is very sturdy, more than others I have had. As a shoe addict, I have had my trials with other organizers. Most break after too much time or the canvas just sags and collects dirt. Not this one! The top hanger is metal and very sturdy and each shoe compartment has a strong bottom board = no sagging!" β€”Elizabeth

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99.

    17. An expanding file folder with tabs you can use to sort and store coursework or important documents.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought this folder to keep our family documents organized and in one place. There are just the right amount of tabs for our birth certificates, passports, social security cards, car titles, will, etc. This folder is small enough that you can lock it in a home safe or safety deposit box. I let a couple family members know where I keep this so that they can access it in case of an emergency. It is such a relief knowing that all these things are together and organized. I’m glad I bought this." β€”Katie Bee

    Get it from Amazon for $6.39 (available in eight colors).

    18. A magnetic knife strip that'll declutter your countertop and look a lot sharper than your average knife block.

    Amazon

    It'll also work for storing tools.

    Promising review: "After years of using a knife block, we decided to free up some counter space and install this magnetic strip for our knives. It was easy to install. The magnet is very strong. And we have extra space on our kitchen counter. Win, win, win." β€”A. Tran

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    19. A hanging pantry organizer to use in any part of the house (from the bathroom to the entryway to the home office) for miscellaneous things that would otherwise get lost or misplaced.

    Amazon

    Reviewers say they have used these to store hats and gloves, snacks, bath products, shoes, craft supplies, and more.

    Promising review: "If you would like to de-clutter your desktop and drawers and make use of some vertical space in your home office or work area, this is the perfect solution. I have three of these: one holds everything that I used to keep in a desk by my computer table, so that allowed me to get rid of the desk and save a lot of space it was taking up. Another one is hanging on the wall next to my art table where I work on drawing and painting, as well as mixed media, so it is stuffed full of things I probably would forget about using if they were just crammed in a box or shoved in a drawer. And the third one is for personal items, such as eyedrops, earbuds, mp3 player, vitamins, that sort of stuff that usually takes up so much horizontal space. If you don't like looking at all the pockets full of items, they come with over-the-door hangers so you could hang them inside your closet door out of view. Oh, and of course, you can use them to hold shoes too." β€”BusyBee

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $12.87.

    20. A bottle of frizz-taming hairspray for keeping flyaways in place without making your hair crunchy.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "I'm a TV news anchor who styles my own hair for broadcast five days a week. As a busy mom, I only wash my hair every other day. This spray is the only one I've found that holds my style, controls the frizz of my naturally curly hair AND, most importantly, can be restyled the next day. I never have issues with my hair getting crunchy or stuck together when I use my curling iron and straightener the next day. You know what I'm talking about right?? That's always the worst. At the end of the night, I just run my fingers through my hair to loosen the hold, go to bed, and then restyle the next day. In fact, many times I like my second-day style better than the first with leftover spray on my hair." β€”D. Lane

    Get it from Amazon for $7.47.

    21. A honeycomb organizer so every pair of socks and underwear has its very own spot in your drawers.

    amazon.com

    These can be trimmed to fit your drawers.

    Promising review: "Okay, admittedly, I am a bit of an organization freak. I purchased two of these organizers (yes, you do need two PER drawer) to organize my underwear drawer. I agree that $20 seems like a lot to pay for a few pieces of plastic to organize a drawer no one else really sees, but... it's totally worth it. The gratification I got from being able to see exactly what I had, neatly organized, easy to find... Wow. I definitely recommend this product. And the actual dividers are well made and super easy to assemble. As a previous reviewer said, the number of times you will look at your drawer and be totally satisfied makes the price well worth it." β€”Brigette

    Get it from Amazon for $10.

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

    amazon.com

    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." β€”JennN.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.97.

    23. A tube of brow gel by Glossier to ensure that not a single hair is out of place β€” in the most natural way possible.

    Glossier

    Promising review: "I have quite full eyebrows, so I've always just used a pomade to fill in the odd gap and give my brows more shape or color. I saw that Boy Brow was ranked as a #1 product so thought I'd try it (ordered in Brown) β€” not really thinking much of it due to not being unhappy with pomades I've always used anyway. BOY, was I surprised. My friends have used brow gels before and always told me to steer clear due to gloopiness/feeling gross/not holding brows in place. Boy Brow has done the exact opposite. Not only has it given me *those* supermodel brows, but it holds every single hair in place without feeling like there's anything even on my brows, AND gives that little bit of color that I've always been thankful for when using pomades. It is super easy to use β€” just a few swipes and I'm good to go! It doesn't smudge, keeps my brows looking fly, and keeps me feeling fab. Talk about a GAME CHANGER Glossier!" β€”eloise_l

    Get it from Glossier for $16 (available in four shades).

    24. A pair of shelf dividers for keeping your T-shirts, sweaters, and purses in neat stacks.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These little things work well for keeping my sweater collection from toppling over on the shelf of my closet. I did struggle a little bit sliding the dividers onto the wooden shelf, but once I did that I couldn't believe how much neater everything was." β€”Jonniegirl

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $12.29.

    25. A pack of duvet clips so you no longer have to put up with your comforter bunching up in one spot.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These are fantastic. I can't believe how well they work. Yeah, it's $20 for something one doesn't really need but I have to say, not having to deal with the annoyance of having my duvet lost in the cover is worth it. The pins themselves work really well and because my duvet cover is white with a blue and silver trim, the pin itself doesn't really show that much. I use three on the top (two on the corners and one in the middle) and just leave the bottom part hanging off my queen bed. Gravity always pulls the bottom part anyway. I've used the rest for the duvets of my family members. Everyone is a fan." β€”T-La

    Get a 16-pack from Amazon for $19.95.

    26. A pack of bra strap holders because nothing is more annoying than pulling up your bra straps for the 30th time.

    Amazon

    These can also convert bras to be worn with halter and racerback tops.

    Promising review: "Since I started using these clips, I haven't had to pull up my straps a single time! I used to have to pull them back up a dozen times a day. No more. Now I can put on my bra and then just forget that it is there. I don't notice any change in the fit of my bra. I wear a large cup size and the last thing I wanted was to add to that. However, with the straps fully extended on my bra, I find the fit to be essentially the same as before. The only difference is that the straps stay in place. If you've ever struggled to keep your straps up, you owe it to yourself to try this product." β€”K. Howe

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $6.97 (available in five color combos).

    27. A pack of fasteners to be the ultimate solution for sheets that just won't stay put.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These ended the nightly fight over the fitted sheet. :) We have a double thick mattress that was too firm so we added a Costco four-inch memory foam topper. Our sheets have deep pockets but they couldn't keep up. I didn't want to replace all the sheets so I bought these. They work great and grab hold tightly without coming off or putting a hole in the sheets." β€”Tanya

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $4.99 (available in two colors).

    28. A toy storage shelf with plastic bins for separating your kiddos' toys and making it easier for them to find what they want. It'll also make cleanup a breeze.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This toy organizer is GREAT! We had a large toy box with shelves above it that was supposed to be one of the best boxes sold at the local toy store. It was awful! My son had to take everything out of the box on a daily basis to get to his cars and monster trucks. Now, with the Tot Tutors toy organizer, he can have one bin for each kind of little toy and no longer has to make a huge mess to get to the toys he wants to use! The organizer is sturdy, well-made, and easily assembled. I highly recommend this organizer for any parent tired of seeing a thousand toys on the floor while their child plays with only a few chosen toys." β€”MamaG1223

    Get it from Amazon for $48.29+ (available in six colors).

    29. A set of spice grippers so you ~cayenne~ see and grab the bottle you want without emptying the entire cabinet.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is so wonderful! It is helping with the crazy spice mess. I can find what I need, know what I need to reorder, and what I use a lot. I'm still filling this and need to order another set of holders. I am going to get one for my cookie sprinkles next." β€”fur31

    Get it from Amazon for $9.87.

    30. A wall-mount toothbrush holder because finding space for six toothbrushes in one bathroom can get tricky.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This seriously makes me so happy because our toothbrushes used to be all together in a little jar and now they're all separate and protected from most airborne stuff/dust/each other. Plus I have it hanging inside my cabinet so I have more shelf space which is ALWAYS a plus." β€”Kymberly

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    31. A heavy cable organizer to keep your cords off the floor and easily accessible.

    amazon.com

    This organizer is heavy enough to stay in place without adhesives so you can use it on delicate surfaces.

    Promising review: "This organizer is heavy for its size. It keeps all the cords coming into my computer neat and tidy without sliding all over the place. I like that there is no adhesive on the back/bottom, which could damage or discolor the maple top of our handmade desk. The cords just pop into place." β€”Jessica

    Get it from Amazon for $15.87 (available in seven colors).

    32. A bamboo computer riser with different compartments for all your home office supplies.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I really love this little stand. My desk is always messy either way, but the little cupholder spot, as well as a perfect little compartment to put my USB hub in, are just a couple of the things I love about it. In addition, being able to slide my keyboard and mouse under the riser while I'm working on other things is a big plus. I don't have to worry about them fall over or getting lost in a mess. The riser is super sturdy and VERY easy to assemble. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a way to add a little extra space under their iMac (or a flat panel monitor/all in one)." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in two colors).

    33. A mail holder (with key hooks) for catching all your bills, catalogs, and junk mail so nothing gets accidentally thrown away.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I looked so long for something cute and functional to keep my mail and keys, and this is the best thing I could have ever found (and a great price)! I have received so many compliments on this piece. It has brightened up my living room and decluttered my kitchen counter! It can easily fit newspapers, as well as letters and plenty of junk mail! It is extremely sturdy and, if it is hung up well, can hold a good bit of weight. I normally just leave my keys on the hooks, but it could definitely hold a jacket and sweater. Great purchase and so cute!" β€”clareary

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

    34. An over-cabinet hair care station that'll give your hair dryer and flat iron a nice and proper home.

    amazon.com

    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. Worth the buy." β€”Alyssa Jewell

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

    35. A pack of fashion tape to secure an off-shoulder dress, a blouse with a plunging neckline, or even a yarmulke.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "If you are an orthodox Jewish guy and bald, then this is the review for you. Since losing my hair I have struggled with keeping a yarmulke in place. Wind, bending down, and gravity have conspired to annoy me by pulling a six-inch round piece of suede off of my head at every opportunity. Wearing a baseball cap works on some occasions, but not for most. The gigantic velvet/polyester jobs just don't represent my views on modern orthodoxy either. I confess that wearing tape on my head meant to hide bra straps seems a bit awkward, but it sticks well and holds for hours. I have not felt much irritation on my scalp even after prolonged use, but those sensitive to adhesives may need to use this judiciously at first. I am not sure how this product differs much from double-sided tape one can find at Home Depot, but I hope that this product's glue is kinder to the skin. Overall, I like this product very much. If you're a bald Jewish man whose yarmulke stays on like magic, don't worry, your secret is safe with me." β€”D. Deutsch

    Get it from Amazon for $7.25.

    36. A little magnetic cloud for the cutest way to keep all your keys in one place.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "One of the most useful purchases I've ever made on Amazon. I use it every single day to hang my keys. I've had it for at least half a year now. Hasn't lost any magnetism." β€”Makenah

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98.

    37. A set of interlocking bins so you can give your junk drawers a dramatic makeover.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This set has been perfect for my desk at work. The clutter in my drawer was so annoying to sift through before I found the right pen or paperclip. Now everything is easy to find and well organized. Nice to be able to customize arrangement as well. I may purchase more of these for cluttered drawers at home." β€”ccc_wood

    Get an eight-piece set from Amazon for $8.99.

    38. A grippy silicone strip that'll stop bags from constantly slipping off your shoulders.

    Amazon, youtube.com

    Promising review: "I recently bought a high quality leather shoulder strap handbag and was having problems with it sliding off my shoulder, since the leather strap was fairly smooth. So I went online and searched to see if there were any products out there that would solve this issue...and I found the Purse Gummy! It works beautifully! No more struggling with a slipping strap. It is hardly noticeable on the strap since it is on the underside, but I wouldn't mind it if was seen because it works so well." β€”D. Dillon

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $13.45.

    39. A glove box organizer to hold your insurance and registration info, so you're not in panic mode when you get pulled over.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "For years, I had my car papers sitting in whatever the dealer gave me (maybe an envelope) and whenever the unfortunate situation of getting pulled over had happened, I was always a panicked mess trying to find everything. I moved everything over into this great organizer and now I feel like my glovebox chaos is solved. Highly recommend to any car owner as it is nice to actually have a good setup for a change." β€”Joshua R
