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
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
Promising review: “This was SUPER easy to put together. It literally took me longer to open the box than it did for me to put the shelving together!! I’ve been on the market for a shoe rack for YEARS — I’ve never been able to find something that I liked the look of, as well as fit enough shoes for it to be a worthy investment. I was browsing on Amazon and was SO HAPPY to find these! It now holds ALL of our shoes in an organized row in our foyer, and now there’s no clutter or mess in any of our closets. It also reminded me of ALL OF THE SHOES I own, and it’s helped for me to curb my shoe spending, since I can now see exactly what I own!” —Joanna Kim
Promising review: “THESE ARE LIFE-CHANGING. They even give you a hand pump to use in case you’re taking the bags camping or just don’t have a vacuum handy. I tested the pump to see how well it works, and it worked perfectly! Works just as well as a vacuum, just takes a little more effort pumping out the air. Using these bags, I got half my closet back! I used three bags to store ALL THE items in my closet including three large pillows and several thick blankets and comforters. I will most definitely be buying more; these are fantastic!!!” —Knastay
Promising review: “I bought them to try so solve the clutter mess in the fridge and so far it has been awesome! Now my husband respects the space for every kind of item. Really satisfied with my purchase! P.S. The plastic material is really durable and resistant, which is a plus.” —Erika Shelton
Promising review: “I admit I was skeptical and in the beginning a bit challenged on how to use this, but once I got the hang of it I was a T-shirt folding fool! These are not small shirts either many are XXL, XL, L shirts! It took a cluttered mess and created a work of art. I thought I would try using this on my dress shirts to pack for a trip, and I could fit twice as many in my bag compared to the way I used to pack. Again well worth it! I wish I would have caved and bought one sooner. My home will never be without this again.” —E Scrima
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 arrived today, 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 tool for assembly. A great buy!” —KatieLee333
Promising review: “These hangers are amazing. They take up minimal space, are sturdy, and, best of all, the clothes don’t fall down from them so it keeps everything looking neat. I have replaced all of the hangers in my closet with these hangers, and I couldn’t be happier. I am pretty sure I now have double the amount of space. I love this product and would buy it again.” —Vida Maars

Promising review: “Do I really need a tea bag organizer? That’s what I was thinking when I ordered this. And when I took it out of the box. And when I filled the first little bag holder. But as the pile of empty boxes grew larger, I knew the answer was yes, I do need a tea bag organizer. I was using a whole shelf and a half of jumbled tea boxes which I had to sift through to look for a specific tea. In the end, I think this held about eight or nine boxes of tea bags (I crammed some of them). I am so happy that I got this!” —Sarah C.Get it from Amazon for $24.99.
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
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
Promising review: “This cart is perfect. It is sturdy and rolls well. I have a tile floor in the laundry, and it has no issues rolling. The plastic appears and feels strong. It fits perfectly in the 11-inch space between my washer and dryer.” —Alicja
Promising review: “This storage tower is awesome and such a space-saver. I live in a small apartment with little cabinet space, so I used this tower for my spices right in between my stove and refrigerator. It was also the easiest thing to assemble (no tools required)!” —S.J.
Get it from Amazon for $31.82 (available in three- and five-tier and in black and white).
Promising review: “I am very pleased with these hangers! I first bought one to try it with my boyfriend’s pants and I loved them so I had to buy another one. The material of the part where you place the pants prevents any type of clothing from sliding off. Saves a lot of space on my closet and was easy to install, took me less than two minutes. The hangers come with the tool necessary and an extra piece that holds the rods in case you lose one. Overall very happy with the results, will buy again if I need more!” —Lizette Lopez
Your closet is going to look SO empty, which gives you a great excuse to buy more clothes.
Promising review: “Not sure why I didn’t expect them to work as well as it sounds… but they absolutely work as well as they sound! Makes MUCH more room in my closet. I used for purses, jackets, tank tops, dresses and has been holding very well. When I need something, just push the others aside and raise up the one I need. Very pleased with my purchase!” —Dennis A. Evans
Promising review: “We recently moved into our new house and didn’t have a lot of space in the bathroom, so we originally had everything that is now on the door on the shelves in the bathroom closet, which left no room for our towels. I do have to say that you MUST either attach to the door with screws or COMMAND STRIP HOOKS, I went with the strip hooks because although I know this will most likely not ever be moved, I love the Command products and I hate putting holes into walls/doors etc. I am very satisfied with my purchase, this saved us so much space! I’m still amazed and wish I would’ve thought to use these products years ago!” —KZambranny
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 store all of that, which emptied two of our smaller cabinets for 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.” —BJ
Promising review: “Love this broom/mop holder. So nice to save space and stay organized. Holds them so firm and flat to wall. Also has hooks that fold out as needed. I recommend this to anyone looking for space-saving storage!” —Jaclyn
Promising review: “This did exactly what I needed it to. Before all my items were in a drawer and the cords were a pain, but with this metal basket it minimized clutter, kept things organized and separate, and also looks nice. It fits two of my blow-dryers, a flat iron, and a curling wand. The bars are adjustable as well (just use the twisties it came with to secure them in place, but the basket fit perfectly to my cabinet). Worth the buy.” —Alyssa Jewell
Promising review: “We needed this rack in our kitchen as our cabinets started getting full of pots and pans all over the place including their lids. Our kitchen is small but this rack was the best thing we bought for our kitchen. Very robust metal construction, light for its size and extremely easy to install. I had to drill six screws in the wall. One for each level and finally two more for the supporting bars that are extended to the front. I recommend this product to anyone who wants to organize their kitchens and have their pots and pans they use frequently at one spot.” —Niklas Henricson
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 that 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 off the high ratings and they hold true. (This is Brad’s wife.)” —Brad J. Leahy
Promising review: “Absolutely love these! We have extra large towels and these racks hold them perfectly when rolled up! It’s such a great modern style and gives the bathroom a great look. They are sturdy and come with wall anchors as well. Will be buying another set of these for our other bathroom, and perhaps another for the dining room for some wine bottles! Don’t even have to think twice before buying these!” —Erin Cech
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
Promising review: “This product worked perfectly for my needs. I live in a small apartment and need all the space I can get. This was easy to put together and adapts to the usable space under my sink. Great stuff!” —Jack Kiely
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

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
Promising review: “Five stars for this hat organizer! I wish I discovered this product sooner. It is VERY easy to add onto a hanger. Simply open the flap, slip it over the hanger and reattach the Velcro. The Velcro strip is wide and sturdy to prevent the entire thing from coming undone. Even after adding weight from the hats, the Velcro didn’t even budge. Overall the product is sewn well and appears like it does in the pictures. The clips are sturdy and can grasp thinner hats just as well as thick hats. This would be useful for other items like belts, hair accessories, and scarfs too!!” —Tracy
You can 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 4 will fit under my queen bed.” —Kimberly Dorn
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
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
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
