    1. A cable box for hiding the messy cords and power strips under your desk.

    Promising review: "It is a big simple box, make sure you have space for it wherever you’re going to put it. Prior to hiding my cables inside this box, I tried my best to tie up the cables and make them look neat, but regardless of how neat I tried to be, it ends up looking like a huge mess behind my TV. After taking some time to fit my cables inside the box, the back of my TV now looks organized. The box looks good, I did peel off the DMoose logo sticker as I wanted a clean look." —Wayne C.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in four colors).

    2. A set of space-saving hangers so you can double your closet space without getting rid of half of your clothes.


    Promising review: "I'm so impressed by these little hangers! I figured I'd cut down on my closet clutter by hanging basic tops from these instead of side by side, but I did not expect four Wonder Hangers to almost double my closet space. These are amazing for work shirts, dress clothes, and stuff you don't necessarily wear every day but want to hang up to avoid wrinkles. They are very sturdy, I filled one with just cardigans and blazers and it held up just fine. They do get pretty bulky in terms of width, but you're still using far less space than you would if all of the clothing was hanging directly on the closet rod. I'll definitely be buying more!" —Danielle

    3. A tea bag organizer that'll consolidate multiple boxes so you can make room for ... well, more tea.

    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 $19.99.

    4. A set of two-tier sliding basket drawers to completely transform the inside of your bathroom or kitchen cabinet. More room for TP rolls? Yes, please.

    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 $25.87+ (available in two finishes).

    5. A set of foldable storage baskets for hiding things in plain sight (meaning you can throw anything into them and it will look neat).

    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 $19.99 (available in 13 colors).

    6. 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).

    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 completely come 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 $16.29+ (available in two sizes and four colors).

    7. A set of clear plastic bins that can stack on top of each other so you get two layers of storage.

    Promising review: "Great product! I bought these to put in my nightstand drawer to store small things, as the drawer is very deep. I've got Chapstick, hand lotions, a small flashlight, and other bedside items in them so they're not just rolling around the drawer. I just bought some more for my bathroom vanity. They fit together nicely but also lift right out of each other. The plastic is sturdy, and they came individually wrapped to keep them from scratching." —Sparkyj

    Get a six-piece from Amazon for $14.99.

    8. A scarf holder to keep your collection compact and wrinkle-free — it'll be a lot more manageable than stashing them in a bin.

    It can also be used to store belts, ties, or leggings.

    Promising review: "This is an awesome product. It is very sturdy, and I have about 25 scarves hanging from it on the back of my closet door. Now I can find them all and don't have to go digging through a drawer! BIG time saver!" —BRANDY M.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.87.

    9. A two-tier knife organizer for storing a large number of knives in a small drawer. Plus, it'll keep your fingers safe from accidental cuts!

    It can hold up to nine knives.

    Promising review: "This knife organizer is the greatest thing ever. I have tiny kitchen drawers and cabinets, and two young children. I took all my sharp things and stuck them in a drawer, and my husband complained that the knives were haphazardly stuck in the drawer, and he always would nearly cut himself looking for a knife. So I bought this, which fits in my ridiculously small drawers very well, and I am able to neatly stack my knives and have a nice organized drawer that you won't cut yourself in if you're looking for a knife. I can't say enough good things about this organizer!" —Sloan

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    10. A pack of shoe holders (that layers one shoe on top of the other) so you can fit in twice as many shoes.


    They fit up to a men's size 14 shoe.

    Promising review: "This works well for me. I've doubled my space, it protects the shoes because of how you place them on the product, and you can easily see your shoes. I'm going to buy some more." —Susan S.

    Get a 10-pack from Amazon for $24.95.

    11. A two-tier expandable shelf that'll fit perfectly under the sink and give you an additional surface to store things.

    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 $21.87 (available in two finishes).

    12. A set of underwear dividers to maximize your drawer space and make it easier to get dressed in the morning.

    Each set comes with four multipurpose crates (5-, 6-, 8-, 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 $11.99+ (available in three colors).

    13. A set of reusable vacuum storage bags for packing away off-season clothes and bedding so you can make room for what you need right now.

    Promising review: "THESE ARE LIFE CHANGING. The package came quickly to my door with five storage bags. They even give you a hand pump to use in case you're taking the bags camping or just don't have a vacuum handy. I tested the pump to see how well it works, perfect! I have uploaded photos of my hall closet before and after using the storage bags (pictured above). And HOLY COW I have half my closet back! I would have more room but I left out a few blankets we regularly use. I used three bags to store ALL THE items including three large pillows and several thick blankets and comforters. I will most definitely be buying more, these are fantastic!!!" —Knastay

    Get a six-pack (jumbo size) from Amazon for $29.99.

    14. A pair of expandable and stackable shelves so you can fully utilize all the vertical space in your pantry.

    Promising review: "I really needed something to store my big pots and pans in the cabinet. I just took a chance and ordered this. I was worried that this is going to be very flimsy. I was wrong. It's very strong. I have expanded the rack and put two big pots/pans on top and two big ones on the bottom. It's amazing how much space my cabinet has now. This is really a good buy." —Mrspjr

    Get them from Amazon for $16.87 (available in two finishes).

    15. A stackable rack that'll not only make it easier to see the bottle you want but will also clear out an entire shelf.

    Promising review: "Our kitchen was getting a bit cluttered with all our water bottles and thermoses. This was a great solution to maximize storage without having to remove bottles in the front to get to the ones located behind in the cabinets. I am thinking about getting another one down the road if we keep accumulating more bottles." —Matthew Cihaski

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    16. A six-pack of spice drawer liners to free up some much-needed cabinet space.

    Promising review: "This is one of the favorite things I've ever purchased from Amazon! They are so customizable and allow you to cut them and shape them to any drawer size. I think this will be my go-to gift for all of my friends who love cooking as much as I do! Freeing up cabinet space and having something that can so easily be rinsed off in the sink makes this a for sure buy!" —momonono

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $12.99.

    17. A storage ottoman for stashing extra blankets, towels, throw pillows, or toys. Your space will look so much neater!

    Read our review of this storage ottoman (#4 on the list)!

    Promising review: "I store all kinds of things in them in my entry hall and living room. They look nice and are sturdy enough to sit on and put shoes on." —Keri B. Mom of 7

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99 (available in two sizes and four colors).

    18. An over-cabinet hair care station so you'll have more room under the sink for cleaning and bath products. Plus, it'll keep the appliances neat and untangled.

    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 $15.99 (available in seven finishes).

    19. A pot lid rack and pan organizer rack can ensure your cookware collection doesn't take over the entire cabinet.

    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

    20. A hanging shoe shelf to transfer part of your footwear collection from the crowded entryway into the closet.

    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! There are 30 compartments, which means it holds about 30 pairs of shoes for women. I am able to fit three pairs of flat sandals in some compartments but some wedges require a slot for each shoe because of their height. So it probably averages to holding 30." —Elizabeth

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99.

    Sit back, relax, and enjoy all the extra space you just created!
