Promising review: “This item cleaned up an unsightly mess on our bathroom vanity and even allowed a place to put a countertop towel rack that wasn’t tall enough. It freed up space in the outlet too.

Amazon

Promising review: “It was always a pain to reach down the side of my bed to reach my chargers, not to mention the wad of cables I’d have to sift through just to charge my phone. I finally searched for a solution and came across these. They’re great! They’re really easy to stick on and they stay in place. I haven’t had an issue of them falling off.

Amazon

Promising review: “I finally got tired of searching for the right spices in my cupboard and began searching for a solution. My spices are in a 16″-wide upper cabinet next to my stove. I love a particular brand of spice and will buy containers and refill bags to refill the bottle. My cabinet was overflowing. With this I was able to fit all my spices on the racks along with things in the middle and on the bottom. I relocated the bags that are not used but to fill the containers when empty to the shelf above so the majority of my bottles are visible! It was easy to put together and adjust the size. I love the finished organization!” —Lisa

Get it from Amazon for $27.99.

Get a hanger designed specifically to hold your favorite camis and tanks that are typically kinda hard to store.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I love the crap out of this thing! I have so many camis that I use as undershirts for work and they were always being folded up and crammed into a drawer, taking up way too much space. After putting away half of my shirts on this two-pack, I knew I needed to buy another pack! It’s so easy to take the shirts on and off without messing around with any of the others. This organizer is perfect for my needs in freeing up a drawer and taking up little space in my closet.” —Tessa

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “Exactly as advertised! I’ve got mine on the counter, with the feet on it, but I’m considering taking them off and sliding it in the cupboard. Right now the novelty and organizational prettiness of it has me smitten. I’d say it’s pretty much exactly worth the price, and this was the best price everywhere I looked, even including places where I could have used a 20% coupon.” —Gigi Marie

9.

Create extra space in your closet by adding a second rack for clothes — plus it has little hooks to hold your purses, belts, and scarves.


amazon.com, Amazon

Promising review: “Sturdy! The weight limit says 30 lbs., but I’m 99% sure I’m over that and the bar is still straight as a board. I recommend measuring the distance from your main closet bar, the average length of the clothes, and seeing if the remaining length leaves enough room for the second row to hang without touching the floor (unless you don’t mind it).” —M. Gee

Get it from Amazon for $22.04.

If you’re short on cabinet space but heavy on utensils, use a stackable cutlery drawer organizer so you can neatly fit them all in.

Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in two colors and four styles).

13.

Splurge on a chrome finish hanger organizer that’ll finally put a stop to the disastrous, mangled tumbleweeds of hangers that occupy space in your home.


amazon.com

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 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! The only thing I had to stop and think about is which side of the base should face up. It comes with all the hardware and tools for assembly — a great buy!” —KatieLee333

Get it from Amazon for $18.49.

14.

Use your bathroom cabinet door to store all your hair tools with an over-the-door organizer.

15.

Cut these customizable liners designed to hold your spices in place and fit them into your drawers.

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 easily be rinsed off in the sink makes this a for-sure buy!” —momonono

Get a pack of six on Amazon for $15.99.

16.

Neatly store all your storage bin tops in a three-compartment lid organizer.


Amazon

Promising review: “I love, love, love this storage container. Sounds silly, but it changed my life. No longer do I have to play storage container Jenga! No more stuff falling out of the cabinet every time I open the cupboard. Now I can stack my lids in the organizer and my storage containers fit nicely on the shelf — I have a lot of storage containers. I would definitely buy this again and again. Great product!” —Laura H.

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

17.

Don’t ever grow up — just get giant Legos that open up into storage containers.


Amazon

Promising review: “THESE ARE SO MUCH BIGGER AND NICER IN PERSON!! Really, they are so great! I love them! And yes, I am a grown-up but I thought they would make storing stuff at my office more fun and they stack easily. I WAS RIGHT!! SO MUCH FUN AND REALLY HANDY! Whether you buy them for your kids or you buy them for yourself, they are GREAT for storage and stack just like giant Legos and are SO WORTH THE MONEY!!” —Sean T. Flynn

If you have a lot of knives, try an in-drawer bamboo block to keep them safely organized and accessible.


Amazon

Promising review: “I love this product! Keeps my knife drawer organized and makes it easy to find the one I need because I keep them in a particular order. I purchased the one that holds 12 and now I wish I went with the 16 because I do want to add more knives to my collection. There is enough space to grab the knives comfortably. It would be fantastic if there was a slot for scissors and a cleaver somehow but overall, very satisfied with the product and plan on purchasing another.” —Zoe

Get it from Amazon for $26.42+ (available for 12 or 16 knives).

19.

Or use a countertop Calphalon knife block that not only has labels on the handles (for easy searching) but also has a built-in sharpener.


Amazon

Promising review: “It is so great to have a high-quality knife set. The pieces have a very nice weight to them. The various knives make easy work when cutting/slicing both uncooked and meats, seafood, bread, tomatoes, onions — heck, everything I’ve cut thus far has been a breeze. Also, the knife block continually sharpens the pieces. Literally the best set I’ve owned. Love them.” —MeSharonna

Finally have a place to store all your bulky water bottles by using a durable storage rack designed just for them.


Amazon

Fits two standard-sized water bottles.

Promising review: “These stackable water bottle holders work great!! Our shelves in our cabinet are not very tall so most of the bottles won’t fit without removing the lids so then we’re trying to fit the lids and the bottles in there and it just makes the shelves look messier and more cluttered. These holders make for a much cleaner appearance inside the cabinet and fit everything really well. I wish we would have found these years ago. All our water bottles fit with no clutter.” —Chase

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

21.

Keep all your wrapping paper in one protected place with a gift wrap organizer capable of holding up to 25 rolls or try an over-the-door organizer that can also hold your tissue paper, greeting cards, and gift bags.


Amazon

Promising review (for the over-the-door organizer): “Oh my goodness, I should’ve gotten something like this long ago. Everything is available at a glance and it’s all organized. I don’t have to take everything out of my cupboard just to find the one I’m looking for. And it doesn’t take up tons of space in my coat closet. I can do a quick inventory of what I’m running out of. It’s also a great place to keep a pair of scissors and tape high up out of the reach of my toddlers.” —daiseyworld

Get the organizer from Amazon for $8.14 and the over-the-door organizer for $13.32. There’s also a really great gift bag organizer if that’s more your jam.


Amazon

Promising review: “Love these sooo much I bought three! I use them to hold rice, homemade breadcrumbs, and coconut flour. The caps make a nice airtight lid and they’re very convenient to use, always right where you need them to be. The sizing on the bin itself is a little tall, so I store these lying down in my cabinets, otherwise, they don’t fit. If you are looking for something to store your grains/powders/crumbs/seeds/cereal/whatever in, these bins are AWESOME.” —Chris

Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

23.

If your laundry room could really use the extra space, try a utility rack that’ll let you store your supplies, hang-dry your clothes, and hold things until you’re ready to put them away.


Amazon

Promising review: “Very easy to assemble, took me about 20 minutes by myself. I do wish the shelves were just a little wider, but otherwise works great.” —Jennifer C.

Get it from Amazon for $62.99.

24.

Create extra storage under your sink with adjustable shelves that fit around your pipes.


amazon.com, Amazon

Promising review: “I love it!! I wanted to do a huge apartment cleanse and finally get everything organized and orderly. My apartment’s shelving and cabinets are awkward but this product does the trick and allows me to utilize the dead space underneath my sink. Now I don’t have to sift around when I need something, I can see where it is! One of the shelves did have a minor dent when it arrived, but I don’t really care since it’s an under-the-sink shelving unit. It has not comprised the quality or function of this product.” —Xtina

Get it from Amazon for $19.87+ (available in three finishes).

25.

Have all your supplies ready for that 3 a.m. changing with a diaper caddy that attaches to your changing table or wall.


Amazon

Promising review: “Absolutely the best quality. The material is top of the line and it’s not just some cardboard on each shelf, it’s sturdy and holds the weight. The best part is you have the option to hang it two ways, with straps or loops, but either way it’s built for support and will hold all the things you need. In my opinion, this is the only one I’d recommend to any mother.” —Kasey King

Get it from Amazon for $24.92 (available in two colors).

26.

If your shoes are bigger than most shoe storage holders accommodate, try a hanging organizer made for shoes up to a men’s size 16.


Amazon

Promising review: “It actually fits my size 13 shoes! Not a fan of the color but when something this useful comes along for me, who cares? I mean, it is behind the closet door. I recommend this for anyone who has large feet and is looking for an over-the-door shoe organizer.” —C. Curate

Get it from Amazon for $24.95 (available in two colors).

28.

Utilize the space under your bed with fabric storage bags that’ll protect your things and maximize the area.


Amazon

Promising review: “These are great under-bed shoe organizers. I specifically wanted storage boxes that didn’t have shoe slots so that I would be able to fit my boots in them. In one container I was able to fit three pairs of boots and several pairs of high heels. The storage box itself is very light but durable. When you hold it up to the light you can see through the fabric, however it’s not super thin. I really like that because it lets my shoes breathe, I don’t want to zipper my shoes into an airtight package that’s going to amplify any sort of foot smell. I end up using my second box for winter things. I put my winter coat, scarves, and hats inside there. These boxes can really be used for any sort of items that you may want to store under your bed. The only recommendation I have is to keep in mind that the bottoms of the box are not rigid, they’re fabric. If you lay something out perfectly and then use the handles to lift up the box everything is going to fall to one side, so try and keep the box level whenever you are moving it.” —Paige Reviews

Get a pack of two from Amazon for $11.99 (available in three colors).

29.

Having a bunch of storage containers can be a total pain, so try optimizing your space with a larger container that holds three separate bins, works in both your fridge and pantry, and comes with a convenient little handle for easy access.

Get a set of 12 magnetic spice containers you can attach to the side of your fridge (or any magnetic surface) so you won’t find yourself digging around all the damn time looking for your cinnamon or red pepper.


amazon.com

Promising review: “There’s nothing to dislike. I will be ordering at least one more set in the near future. The lids are tight, but not too much, the labels are easy to read and apply, strong magnets. A superb alternative to the pricier line.” —M. Tilford

Get the set of 12 from Amazon for $18.95.

32.

Keep your cooking tools safe with a pack of pan and pot protectors so you can stack your favorite nonstick cookware without risk of damaging them.


Amazon

Promising review: “Just purchased my second set of these — they are perfect! I use them to protect my good frying pans, my Dutch ovens, nice glass bowls — anything where stacking is needed for space but I was worried about scratching. I love the neutral color, but with a cute, all-over pattern, and the size is great for deep bowls to protect the sides or large pans. Plus they are definitely the most cost-effective ones out there. I plan to buy more and also use as an add-on gift when giving cookware.” —Sno-cone lover

Get a set of six from Amazon for $9.69+ (available in six sizes).

I never have enough room for my pots and pans in my cupboard so this is a godsend and makes me more organized. I’d love to have several sets of this stackable cookware and it would be so space-saving. Of course, it goes without saying that cooking with Calphalon is wonderful.” —imsocrazy

Get a set from Amazon for $99.99+ (available in two to 15 piece sets).

The best part is when they’re done I just pull the drawstring and clean up is over. It makes moving the play space and cleaning up so easy. I wish I found this before. Highly recommend.” —Anonymous

Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

Invest in a kitchen table with stools that double as additional storage.
