1.

An over-the-cabinet bag holder for an easy spot to put shopping bags, rather than leaving them strewn across the counters… or worse… ending up in the garbage, never to be used again.


Amazon

It can hold up to about 50 bags!

Promising review: “I love this so much! I have been looking for something for all of the grocery bags I keep! We use these for our bathroom trash bags. This little thing is a awesome. And my kids can easily reach inside and get a bag out! Love it!” —Lindsey T.

Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in eight finishes).

2.

A bakeware pan rack that’ll make going to grab the cookie sheet or muffin tin (or whatever it is you may need) a lot less hectic than having to go through the pile and lift up every item until you get the right one.


Amazon

This features seven adjustable dividers, and has soft nonslip feet to ensure everything stays in place!

Promising review: “We have one kitchen drawer and very awkward cabinets in our apartment so organizing was an ever-changing and maddening puzzle. Frustrated with the challenge, I went online came across this product which originally seemed expensive. In my desperation, I decided to try it out anyway. I ended up loving it and bought three more at that price. I’m happy to recommend this product to others in the same situation especially with the price cut. It’s very sturdy and takes only seconds to set up!” —Elizabeth Giordano

Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

3.

An organizer to make finding your favorite tea bag a heck of a lot easier than rummaging through a million and one scattered tea boxes.


Amazon

This thing features six drawers and each one can hold up to 15 tea bags. It has rubber grippers on the bottom to keep the holder in place on your counter!

Promising review: “It allows me to keep track of which tea bags I have and it neatly organizes them. It doesn’t take up a lot of room in my cupboard, which is another nice perk.” —Judi

Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in four styles).

4.

A cutlery drawer organizer that’ll consolidate all of your forks, knives, and spoons into one fabulous little tool.


Amazon

Features cutlery icons for easy identification. They recommend to wash and dry this by hand!

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.” —Kathleen Cooke

Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in two colors).

5.

Plus, a drawer to place your coffee maker on top of! You can then fill the drawers with your pods, sweeteners, and creamer.


amazon.com

Holds 36 cups!

Promising review: “I am so glad I got this. It makes for such great streamlined storage. Keeps things tidy and neat, and also helps me keep track of how many cups I have left to determine whether or not I need to add to my grocery list. It is very sturdy and I fit my machine on top. The top is very durable, hard plastic and does not buckle with the weight of the machine filled with water on top.” —tunisianswife

Get it from Amazon for $19.78 (available in nine styles).

6.

A tonal hand-painted jar that’ll make for a great way to display pretty flowers in your kitchen, or even for storing things like coffee beans or sugar! Not to mention, it’ll give your counters a super chic look.

7.

An adjustable rack for keeping all of your under-the-sink items accessible and orderly.


Amazon

Has an expandable rail, and four adjustable height levels.

Promising review: “I was super impressed with the quality of this item. It did not fit under my sink as I was hoping, but that was my fault as I didn’t measure before ordering. But what’s great about this item is that it is adjustable in many ways and I was still able to finagle it to meet my needs. You are able to adjust the height of the shelves to three different heights. And then it also adjusts in width to your precise needs. ” —staceym

Get it from Amazon for $24.97+ (available in two finishes).

8.

A container lid organizer that’ll prevent you from having to search your kitchen high and low for the lid that matches the size of the container you’re using. Not that I know from personal experience or anything what this struggle is like…


Amazon

Holder is divided into three sections and is BPA- and chlorine-free, food-safe, and made of shatter-resistant plastic. Recommended to clean with mild soap and water.

Promising review: “I have several different types of tupperware and 90% of the lids I have fit into this easily. Now I can stack the actual containers separately without leaving the lids to just sit next to them, taking up space, or standing on their sides, ready to fall out if I move anything. It’s been a while since I’ve heard my husband complain about the Tupperware cabinet in general, so for that reason alone I’m glad I purchased this, lol.” —KB

Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

9.

A can organizer so the next time you just want a bowl of soup for dinner, you won’t have to sift through cans of vegetables, sauces, and beans just to find what you want.


Amazon

You can store up to 46 cans and jars of various sizes on this rack! It has six adjustable plastic dividers, and boasts sturdy-construction!

Promising review: “We just moved into an apartment that has no pantry and limited cabinet space. I assembled this in two minutes, no tools required! I use it for my ziplock bags/foil/slow cooker liners as well! It works great as a multi-shelving unit. Two of my friends have seen this and have already bought one. Every house needs one of these!” —Annie

Get it from Amazon for $22.87+ (available in four finishes).

10.

A multi-colored container set you can easily stack and stow away when not using — they come in a variety of sizes to fit you and your family’s needs.


Amazon

These containers are freezer-, microwave-, and top-rack dishwasher-safe! Plus, they’re BPA-free and food-safe!

Promising review: “Do you get excited over simple things? These containers are well-made, have color-coded tops with bottoms (colored dot in bottom of the clear container) to correspond with top color, and most importantly for me, a great organizational set. That messy cabinet with all of the unruly plastic containers is a thing of my past. I hated fumbling with tops and bottoms and the look of the ‘mess’ it created. I am in love with this set and I am sure I will be buying more.” —Amazon Customer

Get a 12-piece set from Amazon for $38.24.

11.

A pack of storage bins for keeping the contents of your fridge and freezer more organized and easier to find. Every time you clean the inside, you promise to stay more organized next time around, and it just never happens. Not this time!


Amazon, amazon.com

Set includes two wide drawers (ideal for fruit, veggies, and other larger food items), two narrow drawers (ideal for snacks, condiments, and slimmer items), one can dispenser drawer (can hold up to 10 standard-sized cans, small-sizes food cans, juice boxes, and other drinks), and one egg drawers (can hold up to 14 eggs). These are BPA-free, and recommended to hand-wash with mild detergent and water.

Promising review: “I liked the first one I bought so much, I bought another. It’s nice to be able to find things in the refrigerator and be able to pull out the whole tray container to see what’s in the back of the fridge. I don’t know if this happens to you, but I find my way to the back every so often, and come to find out a jar in the back expired a year ago. Now I can see everything and use it. The only thing I didn’t use were the egg containers, but a couple of friends were happy enough to take those off my hands.” —BookBroke

Get a six-piece set from Amazon for $48.50.

12.

A pan rack that you are definitely gonna thank yourself for buying. The struggle of having to dig through all of your pans just to find the right one is now a thing of the past.


Amazon

This can hold up to five pans with vertical installation and four pans with horizontal installation.

Promising review: “This rack is perfect. I put my largest skillet on the bottom and smallest at the top. I did not secure the rack with the screws that came with it, so I can easily move it if I rearrange my pots-and-pans area. Even without securing it to the cabinet, it works perfectly and doesn’t shift when I remove a pan. I will be buying another one of these for our cabin. I have already recommended this rack to friends.” —CustomerO

Get it from Amazon for $15.87.

13.

A spice rack drawer organizer to make looking for your favorite seasonings super easy, plus this is an easy way to prevent messy clutter.


Amazon

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 it from Amazon for $15.99.

14.

A bottle organizer that’ll provide a nice little area to keep you and your fam’s water bottles when they’re not being used.


Amazon

Each rack can hold up to three bottles!

Promising review: “I love this water bottle organizer and plan on ordering another one! No more looking through all the lids to find one that matches the bottle I’m using. My kids now know that there is no basket of lids anymore and in order to store the lids, they need to be put back on the bottle before putting it away. I love anything that makes my day just a wee bit less stressful and this organizer does just that.” —Trisha Kirchner

Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in two sizes).

15.

A wall mount to hold brooms, mops, and more, rather than just putting them in the corner against the wall and hoping they don’t fall down.


Amazon

Promising review: “I have a small apartment and the broom closet was always a mess with the brooms hitting me in the face whenever I took the trash out. This saved me so much stress! The slots have little rollers and they move to fit just about any size mop or broom. There are also little hooks that can drop down if you want to hold towels or the dust pan, which is what I use it for. This is a must-have organizational tool!” —Jacqui Nibbelin

Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

16.

A woven baskets/wall frame set perfect for those who need extra storage space in their kitchen, but don’t want to clutter up their counter tops.

Get it from Jungalow for $149.

17.

An over-cabinet towel bar that’ll give you an actual spot to hang your hand towels, dish towels, wash cloths, etc. rather than just leaving them to carelessly hang around on the nearest surface.


Amazon

Features a non-absorbent foam backing to protect your counters.

Promising review: “There was really no place in my kitchen to hang dishtowels, except for the oven handles. I got one of these to try on the cabinet door. The brushed finish is sort of neutral, and does not stand out. The first one worked out so well that I ordered another 14-inch and two of the next smaller size, so that I can now hang four dish towels (or dish cloths) without using the oven. I am very happy with these, wish I had gotten them sooner.” —Mamachills

Get it from Amazon for $8.16+ (available in two sizes).

18.

A cabinet Lazy Susan to utilize for spices, condiments, or even things like vitamins and medication, so when you need to find one of those things, you can just give this a little spin, and voila!


Amazon

Promising review: “I love this product. It is strong and sturdy. I’ve bought three for my cabinets. And they haven’t broke, despite being dropped and stepped on by a 5-year-old who thought it was a good idea to use them to be a ballerina. They are easy to clean and use. I would definitely recommend for spices/medications, or anything kitchen cabinet related. I have one in the bathroom, and under the sink for the cleaning supplies as well, and we love it!” —Kay M.

Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in three colors).

19.

A front sink tray so you can keep your sponges, scrubbers, and brushes out of the sink because, TBH, they don’t really belong living at the bottom of it.


Amazon

Includes one 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 it from Amazon for $21.99.

20.

But if you MUST have them out in plain-sight, this sink caddy will be more than happy to help.


Amazon

Features an adjustable strap that makes it easy to hang from most standard kitchen sink faucets. The drain holes help to prevent water from accumulating inside.

Promising review: “Fantastic solution for sponges. The OXO one that we used to have wouldn’t stay attached to the side of the sink. The suction cups got brittle and less functional over time. This thing is great! Hangs perfectly from the faucet and adds a little stylish flair.” —C. Osterhout

Get it from Amazon for $10.74.

21.

An intricate woven basket that makes an ideal spot for those little things things we typically end up leaving strewn around in our kitchen (like keys, cash, hair ties, and the list can go on).


xN Studio

22.

A lid organizer to get if you’re someone who knows the only thing worse than struggling to find a specific pot or pan is trying to grab the right lid. Ugh, it’s the WORST.


Amazon

This comes with two-packs, and each rack can store three lids, AKA six lids total. It comes with three screws for each rack for easy installation.

Promising review: “Rack holds all of my glass lids perfectly. There is ample space when using some of your smaller lids to ‘double up’ so I am able to hold all of them between the two racks. I have eight lids of varying sizes, from one for a gigantic frying pan, to a tiny saucepan. My lids have the arch style metal bracket, (similar to the ones they show here with the orange handle). I finally have a proper space to keep all the lids organized without them sliding all over the cabinet every time I try to grab just one!” —Kim S.

Get it from Amazon for $15.87+ (available in two finishes).

23.

A hanging basket that makes an additional storage spot for things like plastic wrap and bags, but can also be used as a mini waste basket!


Amazon

If using as a trash bin, this basket can accommodate 4 gallon trash bags, or you can just use plastic grocery bags!

Promising review: “I hung this over one of the doors beneath my sink, and it is very handy. It is large and holds all my aluminum foil, handy wrap, wax paper, etc. I was afraid it would interfere with the magnetic cabinet locks I was installing to thwart my toddler grandson, but it did not. Much better product than I could find in any brick and mortar store.” —Linda Cawthon

Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in three finishes).

24.

A storage cabinet you can hang behind your door so you efficiently use every open space in your home.


Amazon

It features eight shelves and is super easy to mount on door hinges.

Promising review: “This is a must-have for any small space. My bathroom has no medicine cabinet, just a mirror, and is pretty small, so storage is a huge deal. My girlfriend came across this item so I figured I would give it a shot being Prime eligible. The finish was flawless. I know it states it needs a two-person install but I put this together and hung it in about an hour by myself with very minimal effort and I’m sure if I did it again it would be significantly less time. This fits soo much stuff — it really is amazing and it does not impede any operation of the door. I can’t fully explain how much I recommend this. I’m about to order the mirror version for my bedroom for colognes and little knickknacks to de-clutter the counter tops.” —happy shaver

Get it from Amazon for $148.99.

25.

A dual cereal dispenser that’ll not only help de-clutter your pantry a bit, but will also look really cool on display in your kitchen — not to mention, this makes breakfast time way more fun.


Amazon

These dispensers are designed to preserve food freshness for 45 days, and each one can hold up to 17.5 ounces of dry food. Each twist dispenses about 1 ounce.

Promising review: “I love the convenience of just turning a knob and cereal appears. No fuss, no mess! I bought this because my 14-year-old can’t seem to pour a bowl of cereal without spilling it or the milk or both. This would have been convenient when he was a little boy looking to help himself. The container releases one serving at a time per turn of knob. Good for calorie control. But great for clumsy hands in a hurry! No spills at all!” —Cindy120

Get it from Amazon for $38.81+.

26.

A wall-mount pot rack because your pretty cookware deserves to be put on display in the prettiest way possible.


amazon.com

Has 10 moveable hanging hooks, and can withstand 30–40 pounds.

Promising review: “Nothing but excellent remarks from me! This pot rack fits perfectly on a narrow wall, allows more storage in cabinets for smaller appliances, blends in with my kitchen decor, and was a simple DIY install for my husband using a few wall anchors for additional leverage. So happy my kitchen now has more character!!” —R&J

Get it from Amazon for $36.49+ (available in two finishes).

27.

A rack for storing plates, bakeware, pans, lids, or whatever else you so your kitchen feels less cluttered in an instant.


Amazon

Promising review: “I’m using this in my cabinet to hold my cutting boards/cookie sheets. Much more convenient than having them stacked on top of each other and having to dig through the pile every time. Product is sturdy and seems to be built well.” —Danielle

Get it from Amazon for $13.03+ (available in five finishes).

28.

A rolling cart ideal for those who live with roommates in a small space and want a good spot to store things like condiments, sauces, and snacks. You can also use it as a bar cart for storing bottles of wine, beer, and liquor.


Amazon

Promising review: “Love this item. Easy to put together. In fact was concerned because the shelves just sit in the slots. But the weight of the items keep the shelves from moving. We went from an older 42-inch-wide stove to a smaller 36-inch stove and had a 6-inch gap at the end of our counter. This fit perfectly at 5.5 inches wide. Love that it holds my large Tone seasoning canisters from Sam’s Club. Put them on top two shelves and heavier glass bottles (like olive oil) on bottom. Looked at the plastic ones, but a lot of people were saying they weren’t holding up and were coming in with broken pieces. This would be very easy to spray-paint any color to match your cabinets. Thinking about adding one to bathroom and painting white. Love that you can lock the front two wheels into place so no kiddies can pull on it and spill anything.” —Mudhen

Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

A two-tier shelf to add some sleek decor into your living space WHILE serving as a cute spot to store kitchen items. We love a multi-purpose product!


Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “I recently remodeled my kitchen and was looking for something that would maximize my counter space. After researching several different options I chose this one. I am very pleased with this product. The clean and simple design make it nearly invisible, and organizes all my coffee supplies neatly in a convent place. The cost is reasonable and material adequate for small items, but the best thing is how it de-clutters the counter top. I recommend this item without reservation.” —Frances I Pizzulo

Get it from Amazon for $23.17.

31.

A magnetic knife strip for anyone who just doesn’t have the counter room for a knife block or the drawer space for storing away their knives. Plus, this thing looks super decorative!


Amazon

Promising review: “I used to have an ugly knife block that took up too much room, so I decided to get a magnetic knife strip. I’ve read that the cheaper metal ones scratch and dull knives, so I went with a wooden one. This company offers different types (colors) of wood to match your decor. The item arrived in a timely manner and well packaged. Included were screws and drywall anchors. It even smelled good out of the package. It took me all of 15 minutes to install (I have a drill and a torpedo level). Really easy and straightforward installation. The strip itself holds my knives very securely and frees up a bunch of counter space that my old knife block used to take up. The strip works extremely well throughout the length of the product.” —Thomas

Get it from Amazon for $35.95+ (available in 11 finishes, and 13 sizes).
