A 48-bottle universal nail polish holder so your bottles of Ballet Slippers and I’m Not Really a Waitress can peacefully cohabitate.


Amazon

Promising review: “This is fantastic!! It fits my polish perfectly. I was able to adjust some slots for the hard-to-fit bottles, and I can keep them all standing on end, which is said to be better for your polish than laying on its side. I was worried that having the weight of all the polish would make the door fall open and polish spill out, but that is not the case at all. This is well made and very handy. I have two white/clear and one pink case. One case has 48 bottles, and the other case has 49.” —mama bear

Get it from Amazon for $27.89 (available in clear or pink).

If you can spare the counter space (lucky you!), check out this 60 bottle countertop holder.

2.

A heavy-duty shelving unit with a weight capacity of 350 lbs. per shelf (!!!) in case you’re a Costco devotee who buys stuff like soda, cleaning supplies, canned food, and other items in bulk.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “We purchased these shelves to go into a small pantry where I keep all my small appliances. Some of them are very heavy and were actually warping the wire shelves that were in there when we bought the house. I can fit all of my appliances on these shelves and not only do they easy stand up to the heavy appliances, they look great too!” —vgill

Get it from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in three sizes, two finishes).

3.

Clip-on shelf dividers as a topple-free solution for keeping your sweatshirts, gym clothes, and other drawer overflow in neat piles. (Those hoods always mess up other sweatshirt organizing options!)


Amazon

Promising review: “These are great. I use them to separate the piles of sweaters, sweatshirts, and T-shirts on the shelf above the hanging bar in my closet. It helps me keep them nicely separated, even when I’m lazy about keeping the piles straight. I’m happy with my purchase!” —Maddie

Get a set of eight from Amazon for $34.99.

4.

An adjustable drawer organizer perf for oddly shaped kitchen tools so your ice cream scoop, fish spatula, and zester can finally cohabit in peace.


Amazon

The set includes a non-slip silicone mat that you can cut to fit your drawer and 15 repositionable pieces so you can get the perfect fit for your utensils.

Promising review: “These are hands down my favorite drawer organizers. They work without adhesives and are easy to cut to fit any drawer. The hardest part of it is figuring out what configuration you want for your drawers. They clean easy, and are easy to adjust. I highly recommend this product for your kitchen—you will love it.” —Crystal A.

Get it from Amazon for $29.95+ (available in four colors).

5.

Or a slim cutlery organizer here to prove that, yes! You do have room for all your cutlery in your tiny kitchen drawer!


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 about 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 $9.17.

6.

An eyeglasses organizer that’ll keep your pairs of specs way safer than stashed on top of your dresser or in a drawer. Sunglasses too!


amazon.com

Promising review: “Super cute!!! I used to have my sunglasses just tossed in a junk drawer and never ended up wearing the different styles I have. Now they are on display so I can just pick out which pair I want to wear for the day and they’re all in one place. Great quality for the price! I got the pink one and it shipped super fast without any damage. Only downside is it will not fit super oversized sunglasses… I had one pair that would not fit but I still give it five stars.” —Keri O.

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

7.

A boot rack to finally keep your beauts from getting creased, crushed, or forgotten entirely in their tombs (aka, shoe boxes). Nothing’s worse than finding that pair of the PERFECT boots slumped over at the bottom of your closet when you’re ready to head out the door.


Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “I love shoes…especially boots! I was keeping them in their original boxes, but the boxes started to collapse/break. Soon I just had them in a pile on the floor at the bottom of my closet. Sometimes I’d waste time digging for the matching pair I was hoping to wear. I’ve been wanting to buy the Boot Butler, but was hesitant because of the price. After some time and frustration (especially with boot season approaching) I bought the Boot Butler for myself. WHY DID I WAIT SO LONG?! I loved it so much, I bought a second set a couple months later and am now contemplating buying another. Yes, I have that many boots…don’t judge. Other reviews mentioned how it really doesn’t save on space. Well…I guess that just depends on how your closet is configured. Space saving or not, I love that my boots aren’t in a pile anymore; that they are easy to find and see, and I don’t have to shuffle huge plastic boot boxes around (an option I tried before and was not happy with).” —ZAR

Get a rack (enough for five pairs of boots) from Amazon for $69.99.

A battery organizer for parking all your loose power sources instead of letting them roll around in your junk drawer where you’ll forget about them before they expire.


Amazon

This *safely* holds 82 batteries of various sizes. You can store in a drawer or mount on a wall!

Promising review: “Something so simple saved me an entire drawer’s worth of space! We had a battery drawer in the den desk, but it was a mess! Opened battery packages, half of them had new batteries, other batteries floating around loose in the drawer all willy-nilly, all different sizes and brands mixed together. It was an eyesore and a pain every time I had to look for batteries. Now, thanks to this little helper, our batteries are organized and easy to find and grab, right inside the basement stairs doorway. The wattage tester is super helpful, and I was able to toss out half of the batteries we’d had that were dead or nearly dead from being old or accidentally put back with the new batts instead of into recycling. It feels a little thin and flimsy, but it just holds the batteries, you don’t move or bend it, so it’s moot. So glad I bought this; it’s fantastic!!” —Amanda S. Michniewicz

Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

9.

A cotton swab–coralling flower — it’ll look great on your bath vanity and keep swabs from getting soggy before you can use them.


amazon.com

It’s also great for toothpicks!

Promising review: “I love this little holder. I have two in black and green! You can remove the little florets to make room for more cotton swabs. Do not overload this thing, or you will struggle with getting it out. I only fill about 10 at a time. This may not be ideal for people with a large household, but I don’t mind refilling it weekly. I usually put about 10 swabs in. I like that it keeps my cotton swabs sanitary with the domed lid. Looks very cute on the countertop!” —ag.fabozzi

Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

10.

A pair of plastic grocery bag wranglers light enough to hang on a hook on your wall *or* inside your kitchen cabinet.


Amazon

Get them from Amazon for $8.59.

Want a sturdier option? Consider this cabinet door bag holder. Alternatively, you can stuff them in an empty facial tissue box!


Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review (for travel one): “I like that even with all my meds in it, it is flat and packs nicely. I organized my pills into AM and PM and stored them in small ziplock pill bags. Two bags fit nicely inside each pouch. Instead of relying on the numbers 1–8, I used my labeler and named them the days of the week. There is also room for other pills in the mesh pouch on the side. I originally bought it for my cruise but decided to test it on a shorter trip. I love it!” —Robbie Black

Promising review (for purse one): “So adorable. I put my medications in it just in case I forget to take them in the morning and I’m in school! It fits in the palm of your hand but it’s not too small to where you can’t fit anything in it, would definitely buy another one if needed.” —kitty johnston

Get them from Amazon: travel organizer for $8.10 or purse organizer for $5.99

12.

And a diabetic insulin cooler bag for daily, weekly, or travel use to make sure everything you need is in one tidy place.


Amazon

Includes two re-freezable 6 oz. gel packs for up to 12 hours of cold time and has closed cell foam insulation throughout the bag to protect supplies and medication.

Promising review: “Needed this for a recent trip. I was shocked to see this in person. This bag is very sturdy, very well constructed and has a good look. The pockets are great and able to accommodate all of my insulin pens. I had room for 3 Tresiba Pens, 3 Humalog Pens, 1 Trulicity Pen, enough room for lancets, pen needles, and lancet device. The cold packs keep this cold for a really long time. I didn’t have any issues going through TSA with this. But, I am always prepared just in case. I take a lot of other medication as well so I think I am going to get this in a different color to hold my pills while traveling. Because I will have even more room with the ice packs removed. This was an awesome purchase and high quality.” —Outlaw Cash

Get it from Amazon for $34.98 (also available in blue).

Psst, have an epi pen? Check out this travel organizer.

13.

A scarf organizer that’ll make it easy to slip your accessories on and off — unlike the organizers of the loop variety!


Amazon

Trust me, loop scarf organizers are a pain to use! One is hanging up in my coat closet!

Promising review: “I have tried several different scarf hangers that were felted to prevent slipping, but the openings were mostly too small so the scarves ended up very wrinkled and were a pain to pull through the holes. It’s pretty easy to slip each scarf on and off the rods. They are less wrinkled than on the other hangers I have used. It is very sturdy construction of metal, which makes it heavier but I guess more durable. The coating is pretty. The only negative I have is that there are two tiny imperfections in the coating which might snag some of my delicate scarves. I made sure to put my delicate scarves on the side that didn’t have any flaws.” —William Spillers

Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in four finishes).

14.

A grid organizer for holding on tight to everything from a pen to ear buds to USB cords — all in one easy-to-find spot that’s built for travel.


Amazon

Promising review: “I can and have packed cords and converters for iPad, iPhone with Mophie battery pack, Kindle, Nook, electric shaver, and ear buds on this handy device and I think I can or have squeezed AA batteries in a 4-pack holder for a couple of flashlights I carry with me on trips. I bought another one for my wife for her phone, Nook, etc. She has more room than I do, but I’m sure we will find some way to fill it. I had been using 1-qt freezer bags for each cord/charger, labeling them distinctly, and then putting them all in a large 1- or 2-gallon freezer gallon bag to keep them together before I got these. It helped with organization, but this Grid-It does a better job, making it easier to find the cord/charger I need.” —Bookman McCoy

Get it from Amazon for $15.64+ (available in four colors).

15.

A bra organizer to keep your cups in shape and help you tell the difference between your ivory T-shirt bra and ivory lacy bra in a snap. Also, bras are too expensive for them to get crushed in your drawer.


The Container Store

Organizer sections are gentle on fine fabrics and fit cup sizes up to D. BTW, you should never invert bra cups to fit them into a drawer!

Get it from The Container Store for $29.99 (holds 10 bras).

16.

Or if you’re a DD+ cup, a hanging closet organizer that’ll provide ample room for keeping your bras in fine shape where you can see ’em.

Mounted sponge holders to finally put those sauce and drink mix packets within eyesight so you aren’t left thirsting for Kool-Aid, only to realize your packets are expired.

18.

A pencil organizer so a search for colored pencils when you’re in need of a de-stressing coloring sesh won’t stress you out even more.


Amazon

19.

A tea bag holder that can afford you some major kitchen cabinet room and help you keep track of how many bags you have left of your faves.


Amazon

Promising review: “I got this out of desperation for regaining room in my tea/coffee cabinet. Yes, we have a kitchen cabinet devoted just to all of our tea and coffee, and we were running out of space very quickly. I got this smaller version because I knew it would fit without having to adjust the shelves. Can I saw how much I love this? I was able to empty so many boxes from the cabinet, it was not even funny. My only complaint (others have mentioned this as well) is that you cannot fit a whole box in one drawer. I worked around this by designating one of the drawers as ‘overflow’ with a few different types of tea in it. Also, note that this is only good for teas that come in the envelopes. If you have loose tea bags, they may not work too well in this.” —Kitty

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

Prefer a different caffeine source? Perhaps a K-cup organizer would be of interest.

20.

A sports caddy to park in your garage and then establish a rule that ALL the sports balls go in here when not in use, lest someone slip and fall on a stray tennis ball! And by “someone” I mean YOU.


The Container Store

Promising review: “I was searching for a way to organize my kids’ sports equipment. I love this bin — all our bats, balls, and helmets have a place to go. And I like that it is on wheels so I can move it around my basement. I’m thrilled with my purchase!” —JustJen

Get it from The Container Store for $54.99.

Take a gander at more storage options for your garage.

21.

A hair styling station that’ll handle your dryer, curling iron, brush, and bottles of hair product because despite what your family would think, the bathroom windowsill isn’t the best place to store five kinds of hairspray.


Amazon

You’ve suffered through too many hairspray avalanches during groggy mornings. Oh, and this will also fit on a towel rack.

Promising review: “Works well under the sink. I bought this for my daughter to help clear some of her clutter in a small bathroom. Worked like a charm!” —Tina F.

Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

22.

Fishing rod racks for your garage doors as a *legendary* use of that empty space you didn’t even realize you could use this way!


Amazon

Hardware included for easy, no tool installation on standard garage doors. If the door is a hard insulated or wood door, self tapping screws are not included but can be shipped at no cost. Can also be installed on walls and ceilings. Give the inventor of these racks an award because they are damn clever!

Promising review: “I love these racks. They work just like they say. I have two sets with all of my best poles. It works with my surf rods and with my casting rods wonderfully. I did have to move my hurricane braces down a couple of inches from the top edge of the panels. That was my door installer’s fault for trying to save on screws. I have no problems with mine falling out and I use my garage like a front door.” —amo

Get them from Amazon for $35 (available in two sizes).

23.

A hanging jewelry organizer with necklace loops so your fave statement piece won’t be a tangled mess next time you decide to wear it.


Amazon

Promising review: “I needed something that would save me space, but where I could still see all of my jewelry. These things are extremely durable. I bought two of them, and have probably 50 or so necklaces on one side and maybe 30 pairs of earrings on the other side. There is not a single tear in it. In the other one I keep nail polishes. It is very convenient because you can see all the colors and it does not take up that much space. the only piece of advice I have is to make sure it is on a very durable hanger. If not, and you store heavy things in it, the hanger may break and ruin your stuff. But at least the organizer will remain intact!” —Nellie F.

Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (also available in black or pink).

24.

A stud earring tray you’ll actually be able to easily grab the day’s pair from, unlike pretty countertop jewelry organizers.

A car trunk organizer to pull double duty in organizing all kinds of miscellaneous stuff in the front seat thanks to some secure straps. And THEN you can move it to your back seat when you have a passenger.


Amazon

Included tie-down strap system hooks into your trunk, around your seat backs, or onto your backseat child safety seat anchors to keep the organizer in place.

Promising review: “I really needed this. I had stuff in the back of my Subaru Outback just flopping, and rolling back and forth in the back. I hate hearing movement of my gear in the car. This fixed that problem. This looks big in the photo, but it isn’t. So if you want to use up the whole space in the back of your car like my Subaru, you will need two of these. I also like the fact it came with straps to lock the organizer in place.” —SirNagrom

Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in three colors).

27.

And a spring-loaded coin holder can hold onto your change instead of you having to pry it loose from a sticky cupholder next time you’re going through the drive thru.


amazon.com

Promising review: “This product works great! For years I have stored coins in the driver’s side door handle slot (‘05 Buick LaCrosse) and now in a plastic dish placed in the tan towel area seen in the photo (‘18 Prius). The coin organizer fits perfectly in the center console cupholder. It’s perfect for accessing exact change when in a drive-thru line. The coins easily slide in and out of their spring-loaded slots.” —haparnold

Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

Honeycomb organizers — they may keep things just tidy enough in a sock or underwear drawer that never seems to regurgitate the item you want when you need it.


Amazon

Promising review: “I love that feeling of looking at something I just cleaned or a drawer I cleaned out, so I was over the moon after I organized my 4-year-old’s sock drawer, underwear, and then my own drawer for the same. It is so much nicer to put socks and underwear away after doing laundry and no more hunting for the ones I want because they are organized by colors. My sons socks can fit two pair per slot as well as underwear and I can fit two pairs of underwear in each spot as well. Great deal on these and would buy again!” —L

30.

Or foldable boxes to help organize most anything you’d throw in your clothing drawers.


Amazon

Get it from Amazon for $13.87 (available in five colors).

31.

A rotating makeup organizer that’ll track down your favorite eye cream in a whirl while freeing up some MAJOR counter space thanks to its ability to contain all your oddly sized essentials.


Amazon

Promising review: “I got plenty of organizers to divide care products, cosmetics, medicine before and it took a lot of spaces on my dresser. That’s the main reason why I start looking for a complete organizer with a decent capacity to fulfill everything I need. I’m satisfied with the result as I found ‘the one’ and I’ve gotta retire four small organizers right now.” —Natelie

Get it from Amazon for $26.88.

32.

A medicine cabinet shelf to *securely* fit more stuff behind your bathroom mirror without causing an avalanche every time you open it.


Amazon

Promising review: “This fits perfectly on the bottom of my medicine cabinet. It is very sturdy plastic with a great design. I can’t believe how many jars, tubes, etc., it has managed to corral. Everything looks so neat! If they make a smaller one for upper cabinet shelves, I’m buying it. Wonderful little product!” —Alex

An accordion-like pots and pan organizer that’ll easily adjust with your growing organizing needs. (Even that griddle pan you just had to buy.)


Amazon

The length expands to 30″ and each rod is 6.5″ tall to accommodate taller items. Synthetic rubber bumpers protect your delicate surfaces.

Promising review: “This holder is amazing! Finally, a solution to corral all of these freaking pot and pan lids! It expands perfectly to accommodate my 30″ wide cabinet. Actually, it can go a little further than that but it gets less stable when you exceed the maximum width. It also works great for smaller cabinets. I tried it out in a pull-out drawer that’s approximately 24″ and it serves it’s purpose well. Although I’m very happy with this organizer, I must admit I do find the price to be a little steep for what it is. However, it was the only one I located that expanded this wide. It also looks beautiful, seems durable, and doesn’t look like it’s going to rust. Therefore, I found it to be worth the investment.” —Nurse Bex

Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available with six or eight sections).

35.

An elevated pet feeder with plenty of space inside to contain some food, if not a whole bag depending on your pet food shopping habits!

Or if you went full throttle with the economy size dog food bag, this airtight food vault will keep kibble fresh as a daisy.

This thing’s so legit that my former roommate’s dog could tell the difference between kibble kept in this or kibble that’d been in a gallon ziplock for a few weeks at her grandma’s house!

Packing cubes you’ll rely on if you’re fitting your kids’ clothes in your own suitcase, going on the backpacking trip of a lifetime and organization is *key*, or are just trying to free up some room in your closet by shoving out-of-season clothes in these. (It me.)


amazon.com, Amazon

Promising review: “I used these on a recent trip to Scandinavia and they helped me keep my backpack nicely organized. The cubes are really floppy but they’ll take shape as you fill them. I liked that I could fold them or squish them into my pack after filling them. I didn’t have any problems with the zippers and none of my cubes tore after two weeks of regular use. The zippers don’t have a high-quality feel to them, but they opened and closed without snagging.” —Quincy C.
