1.

A wall rack to transform the mess of cleaning tools (i.e. mops, brooms, etc.) in the corner of your closet and keep them in a neat and orderly fashion with much work on your part.


amazon.com, Amazon

Promising review: “I was thankful to have found such a high-quality solution for hanging all of my cleaning tools! This is a great organizer with MULTIPLE brackets that holds everything in my laundry room! My mops, brooms, dusters, etc., and even has hooks to hang my wet rags and steam mop pads! It was super easy to install too!” —GirlOfPeace

Get it from Amazon for $13.49.

2.

An over-the-cabinet holder that’ll make it so you always know exactly where your cutting boards are.


Amazon

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. Just 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.

3.

A set of clear organizers you can use in basically any drawer in your home to keep all your odds and ends in a neat and orderly fashion. Plus, you’ll be able to grab whatever you need fast instead of rummaging through the drawer for what feels like an eternity.


Amazon

Promising review: “Versatile and beautiful! I bought a set originally for my nightstand. I keep all of my stuff in a decorative box on top so I don’t have to use up drawer space for odds and ends. I loved it so much I bought two more sets for my bathroom and makeup table.” —Costa Family

Get a set of six from Amazon for $14.99.

4.

Some flip-out bins designed to keep nuts, bolts, nails, and more exactly where you want, instead of that “safe place you’ll totally remember” even though when you actually need them, you won’t remember and just buy more.


The Container Store

Reviewers also say this works great to organize tea bags!

Promising review: “This is great for all those little bits n bobs that you don’t want to get rid of but don’t know where to put them. This is THE solution. It has six bins that can hold just about any small item you don’t wish to part with, PLUS you can label the bins. It’s made with solid plastic construction, and you can add other modular bins, as the sides have grooves for attachment!! How awesome is that?” —Trubby

Get it from The Container Store for $13.99.

5.

A double closet rod for when you REALLY want to take the space in your closet up a notch. Just be careful, because all this extra room may inspire you to buy even more clothes.


amazon.com

Promising review: “This is sturdy and lightweight. This closet rod doubled my available space in seconds. There is plenty of space on the top rod for longer shirts and tops and shorter ones fit perfectly on the lower rod, without touching the floor. Plus, hangers stay in place and don’t slide to one end or the other based on how heavy items are, and so far the rod hasn’t sagged or bowed at all. And I have all my sweatshirts and heavy fleece jackets on the bottom rod. The space will obviously depend on the height of the closet rod you hang this from, but I would highly recommend this for anyone with need of more closet space!!” —CCBunE

Get it from Amazon for $15.89.

6.

Get it from Amazon for $6.76 (available in three colors).

8.

A five-shelf hanging closet organizer for storing random things that take up more space on a hanger (such as sweaters or scarves or even nonhangable things like shoes).


amazon.com

Promising review: “This hanging shelf freed up a lot of space in my coat closet. It took an untamed mess of scarves, mittens, hats, and cleaned it up. The hangers are strong, metal, and unlikely to get bent out of shape from normal use. The build of the cloth shelves is sturdy enough for heavy sweaters or lighter toys, but I would refrain from storing things like shoes in this organizer.” —Larson

Get it from Amazon for $9.97 (available in eight colors).

9.

A shower curtain with pockets you ~clearly~ need to store the products in your bathroom and give it an eye-catching look guests will compliment you on.


Amazon

Plus, it can be used as both a shower curtain (facing out) or a shower liner (facing in).

Promising review: “I ordered this, set it up, and immediately fell in love. I live in a cramped little apartment I share with several other girls. There’s almost no space for any of my personal bath stuff, and I also knock over a lot of my roommates’ stuff in the process of getting in. I let the girls know they were free to put their stuff in too, and about a week or so later everyone had migrated their stuff in the curtain! It holds well, keeps items dry, and clears space in your shower so it feels a little calmer and more soothing. I honestly love this thing, and it’s held up pretty well. I’ve had it a couple of months so far, and I foresee this lasting for a good amount of time.” —g. castro

Get it from Amazon for $18.67.

10.

Some cable ties to keep your charging cords and headphones from getting tangled in the worst knots imaginable. I want to know what do they do inside my bag that they get so tangled every. single. time.????


Amazon

Promising review: “I love these things. No, seriously. They have so many uses that I didn’t even think about when I initially ordered them! I bought them to use as cable ties for my desk, but I’ve also started using them to wrap cords for stored appliances, to to keep my headphones from getting tangled in my purse, and I even use them to wrap the handles of my canvas grocery bags together to keep stuff from falling out!” —Nicole

Get it from Amazon for $9.34 (available in two colors).

13.

An eyeglasses organizer specifically designed to hold your favorite sunnies so they don’t get lost (and probably broken) just aimlessly hanging out in your closet.


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 5 stars.” —Keri O.

amazon.com

Promising review: “I had a handmade bag to hold my plastic grocery bags, FOR YEARS!! When it finally tore so badly that I could no longer use it, I found this item. It’s perfect! It’s well-made, has a stainless finish, and no sharp edges. It’s mounted on the inside of my cabinet door, making it very convenient, and freeing up some space in my cabinet. It holds 25-30 bags, probably more if you really stuff them in. I really like this dispenser.” —Cubby

Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

17.

An acrylic storage box that’ll make you feel like you’re a beauty influencer when you use it.

An expandable shelf to essentially double the space in your cabinets so you can store all your dishes and grab a big plate without disrupting the small ones usually stacked on top of them.


Amazon

Promising review: “I really needed something to store my big pots and pans in the cabinet. I have other racks in which I have stored small- to medium-sized pots and lids but for big ones I needed something different. I just took a chance and ordered this. I was worried that this is going to be very flimsy. I was wrong. It’s very strong. I have expanded the rack and put two big pots/pans on top and two big on the bottom. It’s amazing how much space my cabinet has now. This is really a good buy.” —Mrspjr

I have a small linen closet door in there, and this fits the space perfectly and holds all the products I use regularly but don’t want sitting out on the counter or tucked too far away in the closet. It’s sturdy and seems to be well made. The clear plastic is nice so I can easily find what I’m looking for. Overall, it really provides easy access to my stuff and keeps me organized.

I was able to organize all of my items quite well. They were easy to retrieve in flight and in the airport. I didn’t use the zipper compartment at all but did put that piece in to use it as a divider. It is well-made and sturdy. Be sure to measure your inner bag space first!” —Susan

This product did that for me. I was also concerned that it’ll move when I drove but luckily there is Velcro on the bottom that secures it in place while you drive, and sure enough it did just that!

Promising review: “I bought this because I really needed someplace to put the extra junk I had cluttering my room. It came with two large storage bags. The bags have nothing to hold them up they’ll just fold right into themselves. They are very roomy and can hold up a lot. And they’re small enough that they just slide right under the bed. Perfect if you have a low bed. I would definitely recommend them.” —Lmon95

Promising review: “This is my new favorite organization thing. It keeps the pans all neat and accessible. I don’t have to dig through a huge stack of pans trying to get one out. They’re just nicely stacked! It is a little tall for the inside of my cabinets, which makes the top shelf not very useable, but I don’t even care because the bottom four are more than enough room for all of my pans. I still stack two pans on some of the shelves, but I can still easily grab the one I want without having to rattle everything or struggle to pull it out of the bottom. I absolutely love it.” —Mama L
