1.

An over-the-door organizer so you can see your inventory and save pantry space, perfect for people who need to maximize small spaces.


Amazon

Promising review: “Great for organizing the pantry, craft rooms, and bathrooms. Finally have a way to keep all the junk off my counters. Pockets are huge, hooks leave a low profile (so no issue with scratching), and seems very sturdy for holding all my junk so far (it’s mostly holding way too many hair products in my bathroom at the moment). Love that this is clear so you can see everything.” —Breanna

Get it from Amazon for $14.87 (for a two-pack).

2.

A “Spicy Shelf” to keep all your seasonings organized and in view so you can quickly grab the paprika when your Tasty video recipe calls for it.


Amazon

Promising review: “I finally got tired of searching for the right spices and began searching for a solution. My spices are in a 16-inch-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.

3.

Or, a set of spice-gripper clips that’ll free up that spice cabinet space for a water bottle holder or more packs of ramen.


amazon.com

Promising review: “OMG, I love these things! Such a simple idea; how did I ever live without them? They added a lot more room and hold all different circumferences of spice bottles. If some spices are too big to place all in the same connected row, you can cut off a tab and separate them. It doesn’t really affect the items on the shelves; you just have to push them back a little (maybe half an inch or so), so the spices have clearance when the door is shut.” —Bridget D.

Get it from Amazon for $9.97 (for six strips).

4.

Or, flip the script with a laying spice rack you can use inside your drawer.


ImageWorksVA / Etsy

ImageWorksVA is a Virginia-based shop that crafts custom organizers for your kitchen and office.

Promising review: “We are so thrilled with our new spice rack! I cook every night, and use several herbs and spices, including some grown and dried from our herb garden. They’ve been a MESS, so this beautiful spice rack is truly a heaven-sent gift in our new kitchen. Also the cabinet maker made sure our measurements were super accurate, so my husband checked my measurements, and the two of them double-checked — which paid off! My husband is super impressed with how well it fit our drawer. Beautiful!” —Monique Abbett

Get it from ImageWorksVA on Etsy for $35 (available in three different widths and up to five rows).

5.

A storage cabinet if your apartment has a beautiful view but virtually no kitchen storage. This is a great option for you! Attach it to your door hinges and put all of your go-to foods here for quick and easy access.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I absolutely love this cabinet! Our pantry is small so I had spices, oils, and other condiments in our kitchen cabinets. This cabinet allowed me enough room to put all of our spices, oils, salts, etc., which emptied two of our smaller cabinets, so now I can space out our pots and pans. Not only did it give me two extra cabinets to use in my kitchen, but I also have much better access and visibility to spices and other things. Even though my kids have the built-in closets, I may get them for their purses, etc. Truly love this thing.” —BJ

Get it from Amazon for $189.99 (also available with a mirror option).

6.

A stackable countertop egg rack perfect for the daily egg eater so you can see your beauties on the counter every morning and make sure you’re stocked up for your breakfast omelet.


Off Maple / Etsy

Off Maple is the creator of this stylish egg rack and is an online shop based in Pittsburgh.

JSYK commercially produced eggs (like the ones you buy at big grocery store chains) need to be refrigerated so this might not work for you. But if you own a bunch of chickens, your backyard eggs are fine for this!

Promising review: “These came with some assembly required but were super easy to put together and it was fun. It might sound dumb but I feel more proud of them this way, LOL. They look beautiful and they work really well. Its nice to get ride of all those cardboard egg cartons stacked on our counter. I just want to thank Off Maple for the quality work they sent me. ❤” —Kyla Dunson

Get it from Off Maple on Etsy for $25.50+ (available in two sizes and four layers).

7.

A sworn-by airtight storage container set to not only keep your food fresh, but also add visual appeal to your kitchen.


amazon.com

Promising review: “Wow! This product has been a true life saver! Before this past hurricane I had no pest problem what so ever. However, after all the flood waters receded I had a migration of ants into my house. They were in EVERYTHING! I tossed all of my pantry items and scoured the internet for something that would permanently keep them out. These arrived and I placed my new sugars and spices into the containers. Unfortunately that night I had some ice cream and placed my bowl into a previously clean sink. I woke up to a massive influx of more ants! Our pest control guy wasn’t coming until the next day and I was in full panic mode. I swept everything and cleaned all my counters AGAIN but when I opened my cabinets I found that EVERYTHING in them was untouched! The ants didn’t even go near the cabinet. It was like they couldn’t smell the sugar whatsoever! These containers are a life saver. I am no longer worried about if we have flood waters again. They are incredibly easy to use.” —Rebecca McGee

Get it from Amazon for $49.99 (for a five-piece set).

8.

Or, a set of color-coded nesting storage containers that’ll only take up space when in use. If you’re not using them, they can ~nest~ inside of each other giving room to other things you need in the moment.


Amazon

Promising review: “They are the greatest. No more random lids and containers in my pantry. These are so worth it!” —Mary Gane

Get a 12-piece set from Amazon for $28.49.

9.

Clear bins so you can keep things organized but not hidden. Clearly, you have enough cans of corn.


Amazon

Promising review: “Good to use for sliding items in and out in the pantry. Very pleased with this purchase.” —Rosemary

Get four from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in four sizes).

10.

A stackable can rack if you’re done blindly reaching your hand into the cabinet to feel around for the last can of chicken noodle soup.


amazon.com

This rack can store up to 36 cans of varying sizes!

Promising review: “This can rack organizer is a great product that makes storing cans in a cupboard so much easier. Before we had this product, we were stacking the cans in rows, which was fine but hard to see what you still had. Every time you take a can, the next can rolls to the front. This rack saves us time and space and makes our seven-can soup recipe so much easier to make. I recommend this product to anyone who stores and uses canned foods often and for those looking to improve on storage and organization of their pantry.” —Jason

Get it from Amazon for $21.97.

11.

A magnetic visual grocery list that you can stick on your fridge to keep track of your grocery needs and a quick glance will tell you that you don’t have everything you need for ~Taco Tuesday~. And, if you have kids, it’s a great way to include them in the grocery shopping.


Amazon

Elwyn is the small business that created this nifty little grocery list to make it easier to see what you need and involve the whole family.

Promising review: “I bought this for my 87-year-old dad who doesn’t go out to the market anymore since the pandemic. I do his shopping but his lists were so disorganized. Now he can circle what he wants and add any specifics on the side. And I don’t have to go through his list over and over as I try to get everything on his list. Plus the drawings prompt his memory for items he wants. I’m very pleased with this purchase.” —pat

Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

12.

A collapsible storage bin to pop out when you need it and pop down when you don’t. They’re great for holding your produce.


MoMA Design Store

Get it from MoMA Design Store for $6+ (available in three sizes and nine colors).

13.

A tea bag organizer so you can easily see when your stash of peppermint tea starts to get low and realize that you never need to buy English Breakfast for the rest of the year (you have more than enough).


amazon.com

Promising review: “I have a lot of tea that I typically just toss in a basket. Finally caved and ordered this tea bag organizer. 100% recommended. It’s amazing and a real space saver. The drawers are great and easily slide on and off the tracks. The bottom drawers make great use of bigger bags or misc things. The whole piece itself is very thin so it’s easy to fit places without it being in the way.”—Juliet

Get it from Amazon for $12.80+ (also available in white and in a two-pack).

14.

Get it from Amazon for $36.99.

Well crafted, easy to put together, and with a bit of wood glue, it’s a solid organizational storage piece. Would totally recommend!” —Veronika

Get it from TeamSipCreations on Etsy for $26.99 (available in two options).

17.

A stackable organizer because you buy in bulk so you need twice the space to stack your canned goods.


amazon.com

Promising review: “Let me start by saying that I’m not one to post a review about anything. I just ordered two sets of these and they transformed my pantry in the blink of an eye! They are high enough to accommodate my short basket full of half baggies of noodles and grains, and durable enough to hold any assortment of vinegars and home can goods. I ordered two sets (four shelves) and plan on buying more for the rest of my sloppy kitchen.” —V

Get it from Amazon for $15.97 (for two).

18.

A wall-mount broom holder if you’re tired of knocking over all the cleaning supplies in the corner of the closet every time you reach for a broom. It’s also great for people who live in studio apartments who need to maximize every ounce of space they can.


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.” —JennN.

Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

19.

amazon.com

Promising review: “This product does exactly what it is supposed to and does it well. In under 15 minutes I took my nightmare lid drawer and turned it into a functional, convenient storage space. The dividers were simple to install and provided flexibility. Slowly but surely I am getting my tiny, chaotic kitchen under control, and this got me a huge leap closer.” —S. Hawthorn

Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

20.

A pot lid rack and pan organizer rack so you can avoid all those clanging noises every time you reach for a pan to make mac ‘n’ cheese.


amazon.com

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: the lid rack for $12.68 and the pan rack for $15.87 (available in two colors).

Pet food storage complete with wheels that lets you and your furry companion notice when the food is getting low. I’m sure your pet will notice before you do.


amazon.com

Promising review: “This container keeps both the food and biscuits fresh and crunchy for our pup. The containers are relatively compact, but it’s exactly what we needed to keep it comfortably in our kitchen and out of the way of chairs and traffic. We love that it is narrow enough to tuck away into small spaces. It came with a scoop, which is a great addition for those who do not already have a scoop for their dog food.” —Larissa

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

22.

A mess-free storage bin with a spout because I, too, am one of those people who spills rice all over the counter every time. This container is clutch because not only does it have an easy pour spout, but it also comes with a measuring cup.


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 to 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 $14.92.

23.

A lazy Susan so you don’t have to blindly stab at unknown bottles hoping it’s the teriyaki sauce. Just swivel this tray around and find exactly what you’re looking for.


Amazon

Promising review: “I put one of these turntables in the corner of every other shelf of my new pantry. I arranged the shelves in such a way that I had easy access to them and that tall items could be placed on them. They are super sturdy and the non-slip rubber surface is such a plus. The lip on the edges is great too! I would expect a turntable of this quality to be much more expensive (but happy they were so reasonably priced)!” —Sherry D. Johnson

Get it from Amazon for $8.57+ (available in seven colors).

24.

25.

A set of shatter-resistant, leak-proof, air-tight containers that are great for leftovers or meal-prepping and won’t absorb the smells of the food they hold.


Amazon

Promising review: “I’m pleased with the performance of these glass-like plastic containers. They’re great for meal prep, freezing and microwaving. Even microwaved tomato sauce doesn’t stain these. The clip-on lids mean there’s no spilling or leaking despite frequent drops. The extremely tight seal may be tough for hands which are more arthritic than mine. Many sizes available. I can heartily recommend these.” —HollyShort

Get a seven-container set from Amazon for $62.98.

A pack of reusable chalkboard labels because putting salt in your tea is a mistake we only want to make once. Labeling your storage containers can not only tell you what they are, but they can also hold expiration dates.


Amazon

Promising review: “These labels were purchased to use on food containers for my pantry. The sizes and shapes are numerous. The small chalk marker writes great on the labels. They wipe off with a damp paper towel. Wipe dry and reuse. They cling to the container securely but peel off to reuse. I ordered another set because I like them so much.” —Kindle Customer

Amazon

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 and came across this product, which originally seemed expensive at $19.99. 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
