A jewelry cabinet Discreetly disguised as a mirror, you can hang this cabinet on a wall or over a door. It'll make putting your jewelry away less of a chore, as well as free up space on your dresser where a big ball of tangled necklaces once lived. Promising review: " I love, love, LOVE this jewelry cabinet! It is perfect in EVERY way! There is a ton of space for all sorts of various styles of jewelry, and the LED lights in the top are super helpful to light up the inside... this is a MUST-BUY in my opinion!" — Erika Get it from Amazon for $109.99+ (available in six colors). A rolling laundry sorter This'll help offset the labor involved in separating your whites from your darks when laundry day ~rolls~ around. Promising review: "Is exactly what I was looking for. We’re a family of five so I always have something to wash and I was tired of separating by colors. Now it's easy and everybody can do it. It's a simple process for everyone, now my kids think that is fun to be separating the clothes and I’m fine with that, ha. I used stencil and a Sharpie to tag the bags — so easy and l loved the results! Took me 20 minutes to assemble with my 9-year-old son. Looks nice and the bags have good quality and also they have a great capacity. It makes laundry so easy!" — Lourdes Get it from Amazon for $38.87+ (available in three colors). And a dryer lint brush Even though you clean out the lint trap every time, there's likely SO much more hiding in your dryer gap and exhaust port. This tool makes it easy to get all that yuckiness out and will leave you feeling like your clothes are extra clean the next time you dry a load. Promising review: "Work perfectly for scrubbing the stuck lint out of the insides of your dryer. Everyone who owns a dryer should have these, they're basic safety equipment. Clean that lint, and reduce fire hazard and make the machine more efficient. They're long enough, strong enough, and just flexible enough without being too flexible." — Winged Wolf Get a two-pack from Amazon for $7.95. A storage ottoman This'll be super convenient for quickly shoving random things in when you want your house cleaned up, but have about .01% energy to actually do so. Promising review: " I live in a small apartment so I like having hidden storage wherever I can. I also like putting my feet up when I watch TV at night. This is the perfect piece of inexpensive furniture and stylish decor that fits both of those needs. It’s sturdy enough for me to sit on, but I don’t really use it for that purpose. I hide away some electronic equipment that I want to keep handy yet contained... It’s super functional and that’s why I love it." — Jessica Get it from Amazon for $37.99+ (available in three colors). A scrap trap With this, you can easily wipe away crumbs and bits of food while you're cooking, rather than having to do it later on a full stomach. This also includes a brush/scraper that fits neatly in the front pocket to easily swipe scraps and crumbs into the container. Promising review: "Works just as described. It is so convenient to push scraps from the counter or cutting board into the scrap trap. Even though it is too big, place a plastic shopping bag in before you fill it and you will have the scraps bagged when you are done. It keeps things neat when doing prep work. Also bought one as a gift, everyone who cooks should have one." — SR Get it from Amazon for $12.99. A silverware sorter Made to fit a full 24-piece cutlery set, but this sorter takes up half the space of a traditional organizer, freeing up so much extra storage in a drawer you never thought you could get back. More room in your drawers equals less clutter on your counters. Promising review: "I have a tiny kitchen with only three drawers, so space is at a premium. My silverware organizer took up almost all of one drawer, so this organizer is a godsend. You can fit quite a few spoons etc. in each slot. My beater attachments fit perfectly into the top two hollows. I will say I have to flip my forks over face down in order to be able to shut and open my drawer, but then the drawer itself is kind of shallow. You NEED this if you have a small kitchen with few drawers!" — mialro Get it from Amazon for $9.99. A broom and mop organizer Put this on an empty wall to keep all your cleaning tools neatly tucked away (even if you only use them once in a blue moon). Promising review: "Love this broom/mop holder. So nice to save space and stay organized. Holds them so firm and flat to the wall. Also has hooks that fold out as needed. I recommend this to anyone looking for space-saving storage!" — Jaclyn Get it from Amazon for $14.97. Or, a pack of individual broom holders These will allow you to make a more custom storage arrangement. Promising review: "Best $8 I’ve spent on Amazon! These broom hooks work great! And so easy to install. You can place them exactly how far apart you want if something is bigger than the other." — Rayna T Get a four-pack from Amazon for $9.99. A cabinet door organizer Give your awkwardly shaped plastic wrap and cutting boards a nice home of their own. 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. An under-cabinet drawer Designed with a shelf on top, this drawer will help maximize space in your cleaning cupboard. Promising review: "These are nice pieces that helped me organize underneath my bathroom sink! They fit perfectly! After organizing everything, I was so surprised I had so much more room than I grabbed more items out of the linen closet to fill it up. I still have a lot of room left. I bought these based on the high ratings and they hold true. (This is Brad's wife.)" — Brad J. Leahy Get it on Amazon for $24.97+ (available in two colors). A sock and underwear organizer This will make your dresser drawer just oh-so-satisfying to look at and will prevent you from messily shoving everything in, only to have to pull it all out the next day to find your favorite pair of socks. Now you can see all your options without making a mess. Promising review: "I LOVE LOVE LOVE these organizers! I almost did not purchase them due to the reviews saying that larger than a C-cup would not fit into the bra organizer. At just $15 for four organizers I took my chances and ordered two sets of four. I figured, worst case scenario I would have to cut the dividers out of the bra organizers. I wear a 32DD and the bras fit beautifully in the organizers. I am so glad I took the chance and did not listen to the reviews. I would have missed out on the best cheapest organizers I have ever found. I ordered another set for tank tops and other extras I did not think of before. I will also order my boyfriend the brown ones for his drawers. Great product for a great price!" — Elizabeth L. Blackwell Get a four-pack from Amazon for $14.87+ (available in seven colors). A shower curtain liner Made with built-in mesh pockets, this shower curtain liner is perfect for anyone whose shower has too many shampoos trying to live in one habitat. Gone are the days of that supersized conditioner falling on your foot. Promising review: "We are apartment living, so no one in the household could take a shower without crash/boom as you're knocking something down sitting on a shelf or the bathtub rim. This is a game-changer. There are so many pockets with so much room in each I actually have space left over. My husband's back scrubber, my shampoo and hair care, my daughter's bubble baths, bath floofies, all fit with room to spare. And the pockets are all a nice height so I'm not crouching to find anything. The curtain is clear so I didn't have to change the 'pretty' one for decorative purposes. I am super pleased." — goodnite.graci Get it from Amazon for $18.67. An outlet shelf Free up counter space on your bathroom vanity with this shelf, and finally give your electric toothbrush a home of its own. Promising review: "I absolutely love this thing! I have much less clutter on my sink thanks to this. If there's anyone not sure if it will fit due to an object, all you need is 1.25 inches of space between the edge of your existing outlet plate and the piece of furniture. I have a GFCI with a standard wall plate." — Amazon Customer Get it from Amazon for $6.76+ (available in three colors). Some under-bed storage containers Tidily pack away all your out-of-season clothing into these containers and make your closet look like less of a disaster zone. You can also use these for so much more than clothing! Think craft supplies, extra toiletries, shoes -- basically whatever you have too much of. Promising review: " These storage bags are fantastic. I live in a small apartment where storage space is at a premium I use these to store my Costco toilet paper and paper towels so I don't need to make as many trips to the store. It keeps them in pristine condition and out of sight. The handles make them easy to pull in and out, and they fold up nicely when not in use. I'm thinking about getting two more since four will fit under my queen bed." — Kimberly Dorn Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in five colors). A toilet bowl ring remover Use this to make your porcelain throne shine bright like a diamond, even if it's been a while since you cleaned it last. Promising review: "When we bought our previously owned condo, all three of the toilets had a permanent dark ring. I must have tried at least six different cleaning products that claimed to eliminate rings. None worked. I was actually considering buying new toilets as the ring was embarrassing to me. A friend recommended the pumice toilet bowl ring remover and I was prepared to be disappointed again. But it worked perfectly. The ring is gone on all three toilets and it only took a few minutes per toilet. I don't know when I have ever been so totally satisfied with a product. It just saved me a whole lot of money and I am no longer embarrassed by the appearance of my toilets." — Lynn Mcdonald Get it from Amazon for $11.20. A Scrubbing Bubbles cleaning stamp Keep your toilet shining bright by adding this stamp to the inside of your toilet bowl, and you'll never have to get too far in there with a nasty ol' cleaning brush. Promising review: "I was sooo skeptical and was confused about how they’d work but the gel solidifies and with every flush, suds wash through with the water and it really makes a fresh difference. Also, the scent is light but really nice and fresh! I recommend this 100%! They’re super interesting but they do the job." — Janet Get six stamps from Amazon for $3.97. Some nonstick oven liners These will not only keep your oven clean, they will prevent any spills from burning up at the bottom of your oven and triggering your smoke alarms whenever you cook. Promising review: "I have a non-self-cleaning oven for the first time in decades. After having an apple pie spill over and spending more than an hour cleaning it up, I purchased these oven liners. What a time-saver. They are easy to cut so they fit perfectly. Because I have a visible heating element, the liner goes right on the oven floor, under the heating element." — K L Barnes-O'Connor Get a three-pack from Amazon for $13.99. Some stove burner covers and gap covers Add these to your gas-range stove, and it will be a heckuva lot easier to clean. Promising review: " These little covers are just fantastic! Easy to cut and form to the burners I need, super easy to wipe off or quick rinse if need be. They WILL burn if too close to the flame but it doesn't burn beyond what is touching the flame. I bought them because my guy though a FANTASTIC cook and baker is just a tad messy on the stovetop, lol. T his has helped me keep the stovetop much cleaner. I have reused the original four of these for a year and finally just tossed the two most used/dirtied and replaced them. These are just amazing and very durable!" — AngsChaos Get an 8-pack from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in two colors). A handy folding board You can neatly tidy up your dresser drawers with this board and take proper care of your clothing, folding each piece in your wardrobe to a uniform size in less than five seconds. Promising review: "My first reaction? 'Why did I buy this?' Then I opened the box and wasn't too convinced about the way it looked, as some edges look like they would quickly snap with use. Then I gave it a try with a couple of shirts I had just washed and next thing you know I simply had to do my entire drawer! Everything folds so pretty, neat and easy. I still couldn't believe it, so I ended up organizing our bedsheets and towels. I am amazed at how much of a game-changer this is. Must try! Am in love with how beautiful it left my clothes." — Jesus Antonia Vedia Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in four colors). A set of grocery organizers These will not only help you keep your fridge in an orderly fashion, but will also catch any leaks and drips that seem to always make their way to the bottom. Promising review: "These are so helpful if your fridge is cluttered. I bought these for my mom who is an extremely cluttered person. I love her to death, but she is not an organized person. Her fridge used to look wild. There would be food piled on top of food, and small jars and containers EVERYWHERE. I bought her these to help her organize everything. Now she can see what she has and everything has a place. Thank you for making something like this to help those that are so cluttered." — MioRioZio Get it from Amazon for $26.99. A robot vacuum Made to do all the dirty work for you, this robot vacuum is worth the splurge. With the press of a couple of buttons to set its cleaning schedule, this thing'll be off and running — sucking up pesky crumbs and pet hair so you can finally walk barefoot again. Promising review: "Just swept and vacuumed my house yesterday and ran the Roomba for 20 minutes today, and it picked up SO much hair. In 20 minutes! I was on the fence about buying it and SO glad I did. Just got it today but so far so good! It’s amazing!" — Lindsay Get it from Amazon for $199. Glisten Disposer Cleaner Scrub away tough grunge and odor-causing build-up of your garbage disposal from sidewalls, blades and under the splashguard with its foaming formula. Promising review: "It seems counterintuitive to put a little packet down your garbage disposal to clean it, but this does actually seem to work, at least for getting out weird smells that baking soda and vinegar don't really touch. I scrub the sink down first, especially around the garbage disposal area, rinse it down, and then just follow the directions on the package. I have used it with single, large-size sinks and with double sinks — the only difference is that the double sink will have blue cleaning foam rise up the drain, which you rinse away when the disposal sounds clear again. I have tried the foaming cleaner in a can, but unfortunately, it stopped coming out of the can about 10% of the way through. Went back to this tried and true." — KS Get a bag with four uses from Amazon for $3.98. Some shelf dividers Add these in your closet, and you'll prevent stacks of clothing or towels from toppling over every time you need to grab a fresh one. Promising review: " If you need to Marie Kondo your closet, this is really useful and it looks really nice. I got the grey ones. Bought two to see how they were. Perfect. Bought six more. Loving it!!! Really recommended this product, ready to install and very sturdy." — Nicolò R. Get a two-pack from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in two colors). A bedside caddy Give your remotes, iPad, books and what-have-yous a place so they're always within arms reach (rather than lost somewhere in your sheets). This also works in the couch cushions, on a desk or even off a coffee table — basically, anywhere you need a bit of extra storage. Promising review: "I had a nicer-looking, more-expensive version of this in my cart originally. This was one-third of that price and I'm so glad I went with this one. Its got a sturdy backing on both pieces (piece with pockets and a piece that goes between mattresses), one large pocket closest to the bed, and three decent-sized mesh pockets. I have it between my mattress and box spring." — Danielle Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in two colors). A pack of bottle-cleaning tablets Make cleaning your water bottles and tumblers less of a headache with these tablets. If you're the person who just "rinses out" their reusable water bottle with more water, your bottle is likely filled with unwanted bacteria and grime. These tablets put in all the elbow grease so you don't have to. No scrubbing, stirring or washing — simply drop them in your bottle with some water and, poof! All the bacteria and grime is gone. They're also biodegradable, chlorine-free and environmentally safe. Promising review: "I have achieved this level of clean by hard scrubbing with tons of vinegar and baking soda, but these tablets just pop in and do all the hard work for you. I drink tea every day but it stains my cup. This has infinitely extended the life of my mugs." — Erin Fleming Get a 12-pack from Amazon for $8. An adjustable bakeware rack You can use this for a whole lot more than sheet trays and cupcake pans. You know the dilemma you face when you wanna stack your pots and pans neatly, but then you have nowhere to put their lids? This is your solution. Promising review: "This is ahhh-mazing. Our glass pot lids used to splay across the shelf in the cabinet, and you had to carefully balance them when putting clean ones back. I was worried one would fall and break someday. You also had to move most of them to get the one lid you needed. With this, we gained storage space and peace of mind. I cannot believe we lived so long without this. I need more things from this company!" — Amazon Customer Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in two sizes and three styles). A nail polish organizer This will get your collection under control. It's big enough to hold up to 60 bottles, and even has a handle for easy transport. Now all your colors can be tidily tucked away in a closet, rather than spread out all over your vanity. Promising review: "I was looking for something to organize my polygel and gel polish supplies and tools, and stumbled across this portable Makartt organizer. Based on the positive reviews, I decided to give it a try, and the reviews weren't wrong! This organizer is sturdy, and I'm amazed at how much it holds! If necessary, you can actually put two mini bottles of gel polish in each slot. The side compartment for tools is perfect for my drill, bits, files, alcohol wipes, cuticle pushers, clippers, etc. I love the easy-carry handle and the fact that it's transparent so I can see all my products at a glance. Also, a big plus is that it opens on both sides, with storage on each side for your polishes." — Chanteleigh Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in two sizes). A vertical shoe rack Put this by your front door so you can take back your entryway and stop tripping over stray sandals the second you walk in the door. Promising review: " This is great! Fits vertically in my small entryway, just what I was looking for. If you want a modern stylish clean-looking shoe rack with a small footprint, this is the perfect selection! It’s lightweight, so of course, it’s not the sturdiest piece of furniture, but for storing five pairs of shoes, it’s great! It fits men's size 10 shoes perfectly." — Aaron Staley Get it from Amazon for $44.52+ (available in two colors, two widths and five styles). A Rubbermaid Fast Track You can use this to create a completely custom organization system, wherever you might need it. All you have to do is mount the track along a wall, and use as many hooks and/or basket attachments you need to fit all your stuff — your garage is BEGGING you for this! Also, just note that these products do not come with screws. Promising review: "FastTrack was easy to install, looks great and is very useful in controlling and organizing a space." — Carol E. King Get the track rail from Amazon for $10.48+ (available in two sizes), a basket for $20.98, and hooks for $9.99. A self-cleaning litter box This automatically removes waste for you, which means you don't have to scoop, clean, or refill it for weeks at a time. Each litter box comes with a pre-portioned package of litter that you pour into the tray. After the tray's sensor detects that your cat has left the box, it will clean the tray in 5, 10, or 20 minutes, depending on which setting you choose. When the tray is full, simply remove it and dispose of it. Promising review: "This is a really great idea for busy people such as myself. I love cats, but not their litter box. This one is really odor-free and does all the dirty work. You will love it. I recommend it to all cat lovers It is a time-saver as well." — Coco Get it from Amazon for $169.95 (available in two styles and three colors). Some food storage containers Made with air-tight lids, these containers are great for storing all your dry goods AND making your pantry look Pinterest perfect. Promising review: "I ordered a few different sets from this company and all seem really airtight so far. I like how they stack and am loving the label options. My pantry is looking really organized. Yay!" — Jackie Get them from Amazon for $33.99+ (available in four lid colors). A four-tier storage shelf Designed to fit right above your toilet, this storage shelf will give you a place to store extra towels and TP (which means you won't have to scream for your roommates or S.O. when, you know, either of those things isn't available). Promising review: "Great storage capacity. Bought for my son in his new apartment. Very little storage space in the vanity and no shelves on the wall. This gave him a huge amount of storage space for his clean towels and toiletries." — Jnic Get it from Amazon for $28.94. Or a toilet paper holder This one can store up to three rolls at a time and even has a lil' shelf to rest your phone while you do your business. Genius. Promising review: " This toilet paper holder and stand is perfect for dispensing the TP, storing extra rolls, and is a very sturdy accessory. It requires no tools to put it together. The shelf on top can be used to hold other, lightweight items such as wipes, or a cellphone if you absolutely have to have it with you. I would definitely recommend this product." — lpufford Get it from Amazon for $19.54+ (available in three colors). A set of glass spice jars These are *magnetic*, so you can stick them on the side of your fridge, rather than using up an entire kitchen drawer or shelf. Promising review: "I am in love with my magnetic spice jars! I recently moved to a small apartment and don't have the counter or wall space to store spices or a spice rack, so magnetic jars it was! I love how these have a decorative feel while providing a secure way to store the spices. Unlike other magnetic spice jars I feel that these add an extra flair to displaying your assorted spices." — rae.m.wri Get a 10-pack of small jars from Amazon for $55 (also available in three other sizes). A set of floating shelves Hang these on your wall, and you can justify your expansive library of books (many of which you haven't picked up in years but are adamant about keeping). They're also a practical way to decorate an empty wall! Promising review: " Saves space! I’m pretty basic when it comes to tools and installing things, but I was able to hang these alone without any problems. I love them and they look great! Would buy again if I need more." — Brandy Helton Get a set of three from Amazon for $27.99 (also available in a set of four).
