This organizer can hold approximately 100 tea bags.

Promising review: “I love tea. In fact, I don’t drink coffee so I buy a lot of varieties of tea and then put it in my cabinet and promptly forget them. I finally saw this product and bought it to help organize them. Who knew I had so many different teas! I totally forgot I had most of them. Now I have a neat display of my teas and can easily choose what tea I am in the mood for without taking things out of my cupboard. It looks great on my countertop near my fridge and doesn’t take a lot of room. Love it. It’s my new favorite thing. Worth every penny. Now I think I need another one.” —Kasia K

Promising review: “We have really loved this wine rack. We’ve bought three! Created a bar out of an old entertainment center. The coloring was a perfect dark iron. Each row holds three champagne flutes or two wineglasses. Each rack has four rows. The wine racks were easy to install with short screws and the dimensions were spot on. Would highly recommend!” —Amazon Customer

Promising review: “It’s amazing! I was considering not purchasing it after reading some of the reviews, but I’m glad I did (and for a steal)! We love this product.

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 five stars.” —Keri O.

Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in six colors).

Promising review: “Really love it. I’m living in a shoebox in NY and am constantly looking for storage solutions. This design is incredible. It takes up so little space, fits perfectly between the toilet bowl and the wall, and is very functional. I hate having to go to the bodega to get a couple of rolls of toilet paper at a time. Now I can get 12 rolls at a time.” —Ken H

Elizabeth Lilly / BuzzFeed

Promising review: “We have a small vanity in our master bathroom and I cannot stand a cluttered counter. I got this to go behind the cloth shower curtain but in between the actual shower liner. This thing can hold some weight. I have my make-up, lotion, nail polish, hair (including hair dryer) in the pockets of this and it is still hanging in there. This keeps things organized but out of sight and that I 100% appreciate.” —Letitia Bishop

Get it from Amazon for $18.67.


Plastic organizing bins so you can easily see everything in your cabinets, aka nothing gets lost in the abyss. Avoiding clutter can also ensure you don’t end up with a cupboard full of mismatched plastic containers and tops that won’t ever be put to use.

A nail polish organizer so you don’t cram all of them on your counter. Keep up to 48 individual bottles in this storage caddy to avoid knocking them over on the floor.


Promising review: “It fits my polish perfectly. I was able to adjust some slots for the hard-to-fit bottles, and I can keep them all standing on end which is said to be better for your polish than lying on its side. I was worried that having the weight of all the polish would make the door fall open and polish spill out, but that is not the case at all. This is well-made and very handy. I have two white/clear and one pink case. I was afraid I wouldn’t like the clear one at all as I am a real fan of the color pink and just didn’t want it to clash with my other case. I actually love the clear case more as I can see the true colors of my polish a lot better. These cases are really great. This is a great purchase that will not disappoint.” —Andrea Carla

Get it from Amazon for $27.89 (available in clear and pink).

amzn.to / amzn.to / amzn.to / amzn.to

Promising review: “I bought this to use in my daughter’s closet for her hair bows. It works perfectly! Prior to this we had them all in a bin that I was constantly digging through. My husband even agrees that this new method is great. The clips fit over the door perfectly and it doesn’t swing around when we open and shut the door (which is a favorite game for our 15-month-old). I’m able to fit up to 15 bows in each slot and sorted them by color to make it easier.” —Michelle

Get it from Amazon for $9.27.


A 10-pack of Wonder Hangers because shopping in Soho left you with enough outfit changes to fit into a three minute TikTok video — but definitely not your tiny closet. One hanger can hold five garments, plus the handle can lay vertically which gives you even more space.


Promising review: “These hangers are a lifesaver. We just moved into a new small home and our bedroom, along with our walk-in closet is small. So we are not using dressers, and these hangers are perfect. They cut the amount of space you use to at least half, maybe more, depending on what items you are hanging. Paired these along with hanging shelves in the closet, and some storage cubes on the top closet shelves, and now we have everything stored in our closet perfectly and organized. Buy these! You won’t be disappointed!” —Amazon Customer

Get it 10-pack from Amazon for $14.99.

Promising review: “I have this in between my fridge and the wall. It’s sturdy, easy to put together, the wheels roll easily, and it fits a variety of items, such as cans, jars, bottles, and boxes of cereal and pasta. I placed jars on the top rack and was then able to stack a couple of bags of flour on top of that as well. I cleared quite a bit of space in my cupboard — more than I actually thought I could originally. I’m very happy with this purchase.” —JenH

Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in three- and five-tier and in black and white).

Promising review: “This set has been perfect for my desk at work. The clutter in my drawer was so annoying to sift through before I found the right pen or paperclip. Now everything is easy to find and well organized. Nice to be able to customize arrangement as well. I may purchase more of these for cluttered drawers at home.” —ccc_wood

Get the set of eight from Amazon for $10.96.


A perfectly sized over the sink drying rack that’s sturdy and tall, so it’ll fit *all* your plates, cups, utensils, and more… all without tipping over or crowding your kitchen counter.


Promising review: “Honestly, I don’t usually post reviews (good or bad) unless it’s a big deal either way. This is a little on the pricey side, but WOW is it worth it. This product is wonderful!!! We are a family that does not normally use the dishwasher so I always have a dish rack covered in dishes, which takes over a big portion of my counter space. Now I have all my dishes organized above my sink (it actually looks organized, even though they are just dishes drying) and I gained about 2 feet of counter space. I even customized it further by removing the utensil box on my other dish rack and attaching it to the knife rack. I highly recommend it.” —Jeanette Verdugo

Get it from Amazon for $83.99 (available in white, black, and silver).

Get the set of four from Amazon for $14.97 (available in six colors).

A chic over-the-door towel rack that saves major space in your bathroom and makes even the most affordable towels look fancy.


Promising review: “In my new apartment, there was only one towel rack, which made it frustrating for me and my roommate (and our boyfriends) when multiple people showered in one day. So I searched on amazon, looking for something cheap, that would hang over the door, and could ideally hold at least two towels. This was perfect! It fit over my door, fits three towels, and the only frustrating part was putting the. screws in, my screwdriver was a bit too big. However, once I set it up, it was good!” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $20.07 (available in three colors).

Promising review:I bought this a couple of months ago to use in place of a laundry hamper in our tiny apartment and so far I’m very pleased. The construction is very sturdy; it holds a lot of laundry both in terms of weight and volume.

The bins are light and easy to pull off the turntable making it work well on a higher cabinet shelf. The turntable spins smoothly. But most of all I love the extra space this created!
