1.

A tiered under-sink organizer rack that’s both height- and width-adjustable if a future where you’re no longer attacked by tumbling spray bottles whenever you go under your sink for a garbage bag sounds appealing to you.


amazon.com

Promising review: “Great product for a great price. Very sturdy, but lightweight and small — my bathroom sink is *very* small, and the metal frame is thin enough that it doesn’t take up much space, and of course, it allows me to utilize the empty vertical space instead of shoving things all the way to the back wall. I might rearrange the shelves, but it’s just held with screws on each end so that’s easy enough to do-comes with two supports for two shelves, but you can choose from four heights/positions. 👍🏻 Might need to order a second for under the kitchen sink…” —Jennifer Mowry

Get it from Amazon for $22.97 (available in three finishes).

2.

A stackable bottle rack so you can finally take down the “DO NOT ENTER” sign on that one cabinet that’s guaranteed to pummel you with bottles and thermoses every time you open it.


amazon.com

Each rach holds three bottles, and each set comes with two racks that can be stacked one on top of the other.

Promising review:This was EXACTLY what I needed for bottle storage! It is perfect for almost every size I have: from shaker cups to the big 32-ounce Hydro Flasks. I cannot believe how well this worked in my cupboard. I’m thinking of buying more and trying them with kid’s sippy cups and traveling coffee mugs! Only thing that was different than I expected (though I frankly could care less) is that the plastic looked almost smoked or gray instead of clear. It’s in my cupboard so I do not care one bit, but if you’re putting it out on a countertop or something maybe you care. I would buy again, and probably will!” —MGSFamily

3.

A no-drill corner storage caddy to clear the clutter off the too-small tub corner currently filled with shampoo bottles that get knocked off every time you dare touch the shower curtain.


amazon.com

You can apply this adhesive shelf to any not-painted, hard surface like ceramic tile, wood, marble, and glass.

Promising review: “I have a lot — and I mean a lot — of body washes. The thing that annoys me is that I have nowhere to set my shampoo, conditioner, and body wash bottles. I didn’t have any ledge in my shower so I decided to purchase a shower shelf. I must say, this shelf is everything to me. I like how easy it is to set up and how sturdy it is. I was very nervous setting anything on a shelf that is attached on suction cups but these suction cups are very powerful, even with the humidity of the shower. I have taken a shower every day since I installed this shelf on my wall and still holds up. I was able to put about five body washes, my shampoo, and conditioner bottles as well as my facial cleaners. It definitely holds up well. Because it’s made with a durable aluminum, you don’t have to worry about rust, which was something I worry when being around water.” —Adam

Get it from Amazon for $21.95 (available in two finishes).

4.

Or a quick-dry shower curtain (or liner) with nine mesh pockets for organizing all your shampoo bottles and loofahs when bathroom storage space is tight.


Amazon

One BuzzFeed editor swears by this shower curtain — read her Maytex shower curtain review if you’re ready to break up with your shower caddy.

Promising review: “I saw this in an online article about getting organized and decided to give it a shot. I absolutely love it. A friend laughed when I described it as life-changing, but it really is! I love that there is no more clutter, but another plus that never occurred to me is how much easier cleaning the tub is. Not only because it’s already clear, but also because there are no little rust rings that usually come from bottles being left on the edge of the tub. I don’t know why all shower curtains aren’t made this way!” —Valerie

Get it from Amazon for $18.67.

5.

A set of refrigerator bins if you’d like to enjoy opening up your gorgeously organized fridge to find a snack almost as much as you enjoy eating said snack.


amazon.com, amazon.com

The set includes two wide drawers, two narrow drawers, a can dispenser, and. a stackable egg drawer.

Promising review: “Product arrived exactly as described. The containers are sturdy, and work great! Before my fridge looked like a mess you’d find on an episode of Hoarders…now we’re ready for a photoshoot with Martha Stewart.” —hari sharma

Get a set of six from Amazon for $33.49.

6.

Or an over-cabinet hair care station because it’d be great to spend less time untangling your curling wand from your hairdryer, and more time, ya know, doing your hair.


amazon.com

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 $18.99+ (available in eight finishes).

7.

A wall-mounted yard tool storage rack so you can finally walk through your garage without feeling like you’re stuck in a scary horror film called Attack of the Rakes with garden tools falling on you left and right.


Bayou State Built / Etsy

Bayou State Built is a small Etsy shop by Michael, who handmakes ultra-functional wooden storage solutions.

Promising review: “Really great tool rack! I had my tools lined up against the wall and found myself having to move them around when I needed something from behind them. This created an organized space and it looks good. I love it!” —Bruce

Get it from Bayou State Built on Etsy for $51.26+ (available in five sizes).

8.

A drawer organizer set to divide and conquer messy drawers and skip the part of the morning where you make yourself late digging for that perfect pair of socks.


amazon.com

This set includes four bins: a six-cell (for scarves and ties), an eight-cell (for underwear, briefs, and ties), a seven-cell (for bras), and a 24-cell (for socks).

Promising review: “No matter how neatly I fold my bras and underwear, they always seem to become a big jumble in the drawer. These organizers are perfect for keeping everything in place, and you won’t forget about those items you own that end up buried at the back.” —M. Hanson

Get a four-piece set from Amazon for $14.97 (available in seven colors).

9.

A pack of SpaceSaver vacuum storage bags for turning that huge pile of extra linens and wear-once-a-year sweaters into a much tinier pile that’ll give you back SO much extra storage space. Just fill up a bag, suck out the air, and watch the pile shrink down to a fraction of its original size!


Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

Each pack includes a travel hand pump to pull the air out, but you can also use your vacuum!

Read BuzzFeed editor Maitland Quitmeyer’s praise for these space savers:

The plastic is thick, the bags rarely re-inflate, and I feel confident that everything is safe and secure when stored inside. When you take things out, just give anything a quick steam if super wrinkled and it’s ready to wear! Take it from this Virgo, my closet game is forever changed!!! Seasonal closet transitions = a breeze with these.”

10.

A spice organizer with pull-down drawers and labels because you need all your spices where you can see ’em to prevent accidentally buying another bottle of coriander after the one you already had got lost and forgotten in the depths of your cluttered spice cabinet.


amazon.com

This rack can hold 24+ spices and includes 52 printed and 52 blank labels.

Promising review: “I do not regret getting this spice organizer! I can finally find all of my spices without having to move several out of the way. You know, like when you have to move 10 bottles from the shelf just to get to that one random spice in the back of the cabinet that you barely remembered that you even had? This organizer not only holds the standard size spice bottles, but also the medium-sized ones, too! This comes with several labels that you can add to the front of the drawers to help further organize your goods. I did find that there were several spice names that were not offered, but the blank labels serve that purpose as needed. I only have one, but it does look like another one could easily stack on top of this for those who are spice hoarders!!” —TeamDavidAndSarah

11.

An 18-inch over-the-door rack that’ll DRASTICALLY increase storage space whether you’re de-cluttering your pantry, or creating one (apartment-dwellers know, the struggle is real).


Amazon

Promising review: “I love this door organizer!!! I used Command strip hooks (the ones with the metal hook but plastic back) to keep the organizer extra stable. I used the bottom shelf to store my plastic wrap, foil, wax paper, and more, so if you’re not needing storage for these, you should be able to use all the shelves. This organizer has really helped alleviate my pantry clutter! I highly recommend this item!!!” —Super Momx2

Get it from Amazon for $33.99+ (available in two sizes).

12.

A cabinet door organizer so the pile of cutting boards permanently hanging out on your countertops will finally have a place to call home where they can stay organized, on-hand and, most importantly, out of sight.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “This organizer is so useful! I recently moved and ended up with a much smaller kitchen, so I’ve been doing everything I can to make sure there’s a place for everything and no wasted space. Luckily, I have pretty wide cabinets, so this works out perfectly. I have one holding my cutting boards (four standard plastic boards) and another holding my foil, cling wrap, and parchment paper boxes. The organizer is super easy to assemble and it’s completely versatile. Hang it over the cabinet door or attach it to the wall/cabinet door, which means it’s great for renters and owners.” —Kerry

Get it from Amazon for $14.97 (also available in a pack of two).

13.

A cable organizer box designed to hide pesky cords and messy power strips. Don’t worry, it’s ventilated! No overheating electronics in my house!


amazon.com

Promising review:Keeps the power strip and all the connected power cables out of sight, neat and organized. I no longer found myself stepping on or kicking the power cords on the floor. This keeps them nice and neat and out of the way.” —Mitchell Bell

Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

14.

if you’ve always wished your closet could look the well-manicured aisles of your favorite clothing store. Not to mention it makes folding that pile of laundry a lot less daunting.


amazon.com, youtube.com

Promising review: “My husband cannot stop folding T-shirts! He looks forward to doing laundry now. It’s a great product and so easy to store and use!” —Krista

Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in five colors).

16.

A rolling under-bed cart because wheels really are the make-or-break difference between the space under your bed being useful, easily accessible extra storage and a black hole where things go to never be seen again.


amazon.com

Promising review: “Easy to build after you figure out which way the hooks go. Pay attention to the direction of the hooks on the picture; then it’ll be easy and quick to assemble. I use it on carpet under my bed and my shoes are more organized. I like this way better than the cloth material shoe rack.” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $20.78+ (available in two colors).

17.

A tea bag organizer so you can finally throw out all those half-empty tea boxes and clear up some major cabinet space.


amazon.com

Promising review:This is the perfect addition to my new kitchen to get my many teas off the counter and out of sight, yet easily accessible. It’s sturdy plastic and fits exactly between the two trims on the inside of my cabinet. The back is flat so I purchased the 3M doubled sided tape and, voila! The description says it holds 90 tea packets but it’s more suitable to 72, 12 in each of the 6 bins. My cabinet doors are ‘self-closing’ so there is no worry of the bins not staying in place.” —2Boaters

Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in three colors).

18.

A food container lid organizer with five adjustable dividers that’ll house all your square and round lids in one spot so no one ever again has to ask “Where’s the lid for this?”


amazon.com

Promising review: “This is a great caddy for all of those maverick Tupperware lids that disappear like socks in a laundry room. I was able to fit quite a few into it. It comes with five separators to cordon off different sizes/shapes of lids (see photos) and consolidate two of three previous lids bins into this one. Plus, according to their card insert, the company is a small, women-owned business, which I’m always happy to support.” —Bridget D.

Get it from Amazon for $15+ (available in three sizes).

19.

A hanging handbag organizer with six clear compartments to free yourself from the daily task of digging through an unorganized pile of purses to find the one you want.

Get it from Le Sac Bag on Etsy for $9.99.

20.

A pack of easy-to-install adhesive broom holders to prevent the broom and mop you oh so meticulously perched in the corner from falling down for the 800th time.

21.

A set of clear bins for transforming any vanity or desk drawer into an an organized oasis.


amazon.com

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 set from Amazon for $14.99.

22.

A square ceiling-mount shelf if the amount of available floor space in your garage is somewhere between “treacherous maze” and “non-existent”. Not only is this shelf height-adjustable but it can hold up to 250 pounds of random yard tools and tubs of Christmas decorations.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I actually am using them in my two outdoor sheds so I can take advantage of the unused upper portion. They come partially assembled and are fairly easy to install. I chose not to use the large lag screws that came with it and chose to use a heavy-duty shorter wood screw. Because the rafters in the shed are only 2x4s and I wasn’t putting anything too heavy on lift, that was an option. It is made so well and can be basically adjusted to any angle you have. I even hung some yard equipment from loft. It can handle a bit of weight but be sure to follow the directions if you will be loading it up.” —J.F.

Get a 45″x45″ shelf from Amazon for $67.99.

23.

A game-changing pan and lid organizer because teetering pan pyramids are an aggravating art form that can prematurely scratch and ding your cookware (and your sanity).


Amazon

Promising review: “I was tired of stacking my frying pans on top of each other and was looking for something to both organize my pans and give me easy access to them. Before this organizer, I would have to unstack several pans in order to get to the middle pan that I needed. Now, I can just reach in and immediately get the frying pan that I need without having to unstack. The quality of this organizer is pretty good.” —Linda

Get it from Amazon for $15.97 (available in two colors).

24.

Or a stainless-steel accordion-style rack that adjusts in length to easily organize pans, lids, and cookie sheets of all sizes in cabinets or on countertops.


Amazon

Promising review: “I am obsessed with this cabinet organizer. The fact that it’s extendable means that I can use it from home to home. My pot lids fit perfectly. I also use it to store my cast-iron skillet and a glass baking dish. It really is exactly what I was looking for.” —Emily P

Get it from Amazon for $28.99.

25.

A Rubbermaid Fast Track you can customize with hooks and baskets to cater to your family’s exact organizational needs without breaking the bank.

Promising review: “FastTrack was easy to install, looks great, and is very useful in controlling and organizing a space.” —Carl E. King

Get the track rail from Amazon for $10.48+ (available in two sizes).

26.

A slim toilet paper stocker for filling up that awkward space between your toilet and the wall with actually useful storage that just so happens to double as a table to house your phone while you take care of business.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I really love it. Living in a shoebox in NY, I constantly look for storage solutions. This design is incredible. It takes up so little footprint and fits perfectly between the toilet bowl and the wall, and is very functional. I hate having to go to the deli store to get a couple of rolls of toilet paper at a time. Now I can get 12 rolls at a time, though if you get the larger rolls, they won’t come through the hole on the bottom. You will have to retrieve the larger rolls by removing the top, which is not a big deal. I put a wonderful Olavie diffuser and body scrub on the top, and it looks really nice. It’s a must-have for any small apartment living!” —Ken H

Get it from Amazon for $47.99.

27.

A multipurpose car seat storage bag if the floor is turning out to be a less-than-ideal place for umbrellas and takeout trash. This handy organizer has a lined and leakproof spot for garbage, plenty of mesh storage pockets, and a dispenser for tissues or wet wipes.


Amazon

Promising review: “The two things my car needed most were a place to put trash and a place to keep a tissue box from getting crushed. This is perfect! My kids are older and this has made it easy for us to keep the car from becoming a mess.” —JMP

Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

28.

A genius T-shirt roll holder that holds up to 16 shirts because picking out what to wear with this seems a lot easier than digging through the depths of your probably-too-full drawers.


Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed

The Roll Keeper is a Kelso, Washington-based small biz owned by Traci. Traci has been crafting for over 40 years and created her roll storage design to help organize vinyl, soon realizing that it was the perfect organizational solution for much more. Her shop has versions for bottles, wrapping paper, pens, and more.

This handy organizer solver BuzzFeed editor Mallory Mower’s folding woes:

“Before getting this I was driving myself up the wall with my bad folding habits. I basically shoved all my shirts into the storage drawers under my bed, because I have a teeny tiny closet (the picture above gives you a solid idea of how small it is). This has given me a massive amount of clothing storage I didn’t have before. The quality is stellar and Traci is 10/10 the most thoughtful person I’ve purchased a product from!”

Get it from The Roll Keeper on Amazon Handmade for $19.99 (available in two finishes).

29.

An over-the-door shoe organizer that’ll turn the back of any door into a perfect place for everything from shoes to cleaning supplies, while clearing up a lot of pantry or closet space at the same time.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “Having no place to store my shoes was driving me nuts, and I was always tripping over shoes. I wasn’t sure if the pockets in the organizer would be large enough for my Crocs, but they fit perfectly when I put the shoes in heel first. I was able to get two pairs of sneakers in the last two sets of pockets, as well. The pockets seem to be well-made and I’m confident that this shoe organizer will last.” —A. Roach

Get it from Amazon for $8.97+ (available in three colors).

30.

A space-saving drawer organizer so you can actually find the cutlery you need when you need it instead of rummaging through a pile of potentially painful pointy things.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Suitable for drawers with a minimum height of 3.25 inches, this organizer fits up to 24 pieces of cutlery.

Promising review: “I thought this would be handy and help with space management in a small apartment. It turned out to be absolutely perfect. It keeps the silverware clean, and stores a lot in a very small space. I love it. I got two because I inherited my grandmother’s silverware, so there are two types of forks and two types of spoons, and I wanted things separate and organized. Two organizers fit side by side in a standard apartment drawer. After getting these, I picked up the knife organizer, and it’s just as handy and useful.” —Jerimi

Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

31.

A slim recycling sorter with three sections to create an easy-to-use system for separating your papers from your plastics instead of just tossing them by the door in whatever Whole Foods bag you have lying around.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “Most apartment units don’t have recycling so you either have to find a recycling center in your town or throw everything away. I decided to find a recycling center and order this product. It sits right next my door and I love the fact that it has handles!! Now when my sorter gets full it’s already right there at the door, ready for me to take to the recycling center! All I have to do is grab my purse, jacket, and keys, and I’m on my way! No more fumbling with bulky plastic bags or boxes!” —Dana~

Get it from Amazon for $19.98.

32.

A set of Wonder Hangers for putting all that empty vertical space to good use and instantly doubling your storage capabilities without sacrificing any clothes to the donation bin.


Amazon

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

Get an eight-pack from Amazon for $29.99 (available in three colors).

33.

A medicine cabinet organizing bin if you’re tired of getting rudely startled by falling pill bottles and contact solution whenever you sleepily stumble to the bathroom in the morning.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “No counter space? No medicine cabinet? No problem! I overhauled my bathroom sink by utilizing vertical space and attaching these to the wall with sticky strips. I suggest the hook-and-latch-style photo hangers so you can easily remove to clean/dust, as well as being a little more forgiving on uneven walls and slightly concave areas of the molded plastic.” —Organization Freak / Hobby Cook

Get it from Amazon for $18.19.

34.

A pack of chipboard ribbon spools because you’ve got a long list of Pinterest crafts to get to, and your exploding craft drawer is currently in no shape to make that happen.


Ribbon Storage / Etsy

Ribbon Storage is a small Etsy shop run by Danielle Laver, who creates innovative storage solutions for crafters.

Promising review: “These spools are amazing! I had three HUGE bins full of ribbon I’ve managed to reduce down to two small bins. I’ve wrapped all my lace, ribbon, and string. And even put small fabric scraps on the larger ones to save space. They work wonderfully! I loved these so much I purchased a second order. I will state that with them wrapped like this, they will have more of a bend in the fabric than if they were on the spools, but I’ve tested it and it’s easily removed with a hot iron. Also, the seller shipped super fast and they were packaged well!” —Hazel Godwin

Get a 30-pack from Ribbon Storage on Etsy for $8.88 (also available in sizes small and large and in larger quantities).
