One of the biggest issues with storage space: we always seem to need more of it. Cabinets fill up, drawers get stuffed, and closets can only hold so much. How did we wind up with this much stuff?
If you’ve asked yourself the same question, we got you covered. We found products that’ll do the greatest thing possible for your home: create more space. In your closet, kitchen, bedroom, and pretty much everywhere else. They’ll help you store everything you own — even the awkward items you never know what to do with (ahem, baseball caps and hangers). Three cheers for a more organized you.
It’s time to mount them. The slots will hold your Swiffer and mops off the floor, while the hooks can house towels, dust pans, and brushes. You get your closet back, and all your cleaning supplies finally get a resting place that isn’t a dusty corner. ($11.99+, Amazon)
It’s compact, rolls, and has three baskets perfect for holding laundry detergent, dryer balls, and stain-removal sprays. If it’s in your bathroom, pack it with extra rolls of toilet paper, hairbrushes, styling tools, and more. The best part is that it won’t take up much space wherever you place it. ($32.99+, Amazon)
Don’t have any counter space left for a fruit bowl? There’s a fix for that. When you place your order, you’ll be able to pick what color yarn you want used. It takes about two to three weeks to produce, and comes with four small hooks for hanging. ($27.90+, Knapps Knots on Etsy)
It works via the elastic straps that’ll tighten around things to keep ‘em in place. This one holds up to 16 items, and can even be used for wrapping paper rolls. Say ‘welcome back’ to some precious drawer space. ($15.99, The Roll Keeper on Etsy)
Use it for smart home devices, your electric toothbrush, or as a place to charge your phone. It’ll help free up some counter space, and it even has a tiny opening for wires to snake through. Installation is easy: just unscrew your current outlet covers and replace with these. ($7.68+, Amazon)
This little organizer is space-saving 101. It’ll provide more room in drawers, which is especially important in tiny kitchens. You’ll be able to add more utensils and you’ll even have space for larger knives and tools. Boom. ($9.99, Amazon)
You can choose clear, or pick different colors to help create a sorting system. Art supplies will finally have a home, plus any Lego that may be buried in a rug. The built-in stops prevent the drawers from falling out, and the lip makes it easy for kids to open on their own. ($9.99/each, The Container Store)
That black hole that exists underneath your sink? Yeah, you can make use of that space. These sliding drawers can hold cleaning supplies, trash bags, and more. Since the drawers slide out, you won’t have to get on your hands and knees to dig to the back. ($43.97/2 pack, Amazon)
Each glass jar is airtight, so your spices will stay fresh and within reach while you cook meals. Small jars can hold about ¼ cup, while large jars can hold up to ½ cup. The strong lid magnets will keep ‘em from sliding once you place them on the fridge. ($55+/10 pack, Amazon)
Random items that you never know how to store? Yep, baseball hats fall into that category. Say ‘hello’ to your newest solution. Each organizer can hold up to 10 hats and attach directly to a hanger. (It also works for storing gloves and other accessories.) ($6.99+, Amazon)
Tiny bedrooms, unite. This floating shelf clamps onto bed frames. No more putting your phone, glasses, and cup of water on the floor (it can hold up to 15 pounds). If your bed doesn’t have a frame with a lip, there’s a version that can also slide underneath your mattress. ($29.99, Amazon)
Raise your hand if your medicine cabinet looks like a tornado hit it. These slim bins will fit on the shelves, organizing items that naturally gather and cause mess. Each one has compartments perfect for cotton balls, medicines, tweezers, swabs, and more. ($19.99/2 pack, Amazon)
Because storing smaller plastic bags within one larger plastic bag underneath your sink isn’t a method. This dispenser bag can be hung up in a closet or laundry room. Just stuff in bags you wanna reuse at the top, and you can pull ‘em out one by one at the bottom. ($9.99+/2 pack, Amazon)
