Do you have some stuff weighing you down? I don’t mean metaphorically like your job is making you crazy (although I think a lot of us could relate). I mean physically like “I have pots and pans and towels and toys and what’s with all these charging cables?” That kind of stuff. The stuff we have and the stuff we need and the stuff we’ve yet to buy but have been eyeing on our Amazon wish lists. Now, I’m not saying you need to go on a cleaning rampage, all Marie Kondo-style.
But, I am thinking you could probably use more storage to just get. that. stuff. out. of. your. face. Am I right? If so, you’re in luck. I found 37 home products — right on Amazon, duh — that will double your storage and cut your stress levels in half. Toys? Hidden. Whether your goal is straight-up organization or to find pieces that do double-duty (functional and storage-friendly), this list will have you wanting to whip every corner into shape.
A Place For Your Pots and Pans
You really won’t believe how much cabinet storage this pots-and-pans organizer frees up once you have it. I know I didn’t. Mount it with the included hardware or leave it free-standing and not only will your pans be better organized, but they’ll be simpler to grab when it’s time to cook. You can accommodate up to five pans in this organizer with vertical installation or four with horizontal installation.
Save A Whole Lotta Room With These Cascading Hangers
I love shopping (who doesn’t?), which means my closet is stuffed to the brim with clothes. This has made finding items quite a difficult task. With these cascading hangers, you can save space in your closet and keep your clothes organized by item, color, etc. You know what that means, right? More room for new clothes!
This Large Cotton Woven Basket Is Perfect for Laundry, Toys, Blankets, and More
Any household could use one or two of these large cotton woven baskets. They’re easy to carry by the built-in handles, and they’re nice and roomy at 21.7″ x 21.7″ x 13.8″. They’re lightweight but sturdy and come in six different colors and styles.
Maximize Your Bathroom Storage With This Corner Cabinet
No matter how big your bathroom is, you probably feel like you never have enough room. From skin care products to feminine goodies to toilet paper to cleaning supplies, bathroom cabinets fill up quickly. Maximize your bathroom space with this corner cabinet, perfect for extra toilet paper, hair and beauty products, soap, and more.
Over-The-Door Storage For Any Space
I know you’ve seen over-the-door storage pockets before, but these are different. Why? Because these pockets have “windows,” so you can easily see what you’ve put where which is especially handy for small objects. Available in myriad colors, you can get instant extra storage with this product without drilling holes or mounting anything to a wall. Just hook and go.
Streamlined Storage For A Utensil Drawer
Why on earth do we devote an entire drawer in our kitchens to cutlery? I’ll tell you why, because utensil organizers are always these ugly, wide, drawer-filling things that usually stretch from one side of the drawer to the other. This organizer tray tackles the idea of a cutlery drawer differently, with stacked compartments instead of the old-school utensil sorters. Get one for cutlery and another for knives.
Put Storage In The Corner
If you’re looking for areas of your home where you could add a bit of storage here and a smidge of storage there, you might want to go stand in a corner. Seriously, though. This catty-corner shelf offers three shelves of storage in a small footprint, so you can add it to any small space, like a crowded living room or a bath. It comes in two sizes — small and large.
Get Your Hair Gadgets Out Of Bathroom Drawers
I have a relatively small vanity for a master bedroom with only two drawers (and under-sink storage, of course). But, like most women, I find myself filling the limited drawer space I have with a host of hair gadgets I need to coif and primp my luxurious locks. This cabinet door mount for the bathroom gets those hair tools out of the drawers, freeing that space up for the latest beauty products you’re into.
Add A Shelf To Your Outlets
Yes, this is the outlet shelf you’ve seen on television infomercials and yes, it’s absolutely worth the price. Why? Because it gives you a safe storage area for something like an Echo Dot, Bluetooth speaker, or your smartphone, without fear of it falling in the sink (or worse, the toilet). I highly recommend adding one to each bathroom and maybe an extra in the kitchen.
Maximize Your Closet Space
You’ve always dreamed about a machine that folds your shirts … well, here it is! This closet organizer and shirt folder utilizes mini-shelves that allow you to store your T-shirts in a clean and organized manner. When it’s time to pull one on for the day, simply lift the divider and you’ll have access to your “T-shirt of the day” without disrupting every other shirt in your stack.
Rack Up The Caps
Whatever the baseball cap situation is in your home, this over-the-door cap organizer will get them out of your closet (or drawer) and into a space-saving design that’ll free up more space for … shoes, maybe? This one holds up to 18 caps.
This Shower Caddy Gets Your Bottles in Line
Reading the reviews is a must-do before buying any product, and this KINCMAX shower caddy has customers raving. People are crazy about the sleek design, the spacious baskets, and how easy it is to install without any required tools. You know that old saying: the customer is always right? In this case, it’s actually true!
Storage Cubes You Can Construct In Any Shape
Sometimes you need storage, but you’re just not sure what configuration works best for the space you’re trying to fill. This six-cube storage solution gives you all the extra space you want in a design that can be adjusted into a shape that best fits your needs. These cubes are available in a host of colors from gray to pink to blue, making them a perfect addition to a man cave, basement, playroom, or child’s bedroom.
This Holder That Keeps Your Sponges Mold-Free
One way to combat mold and mildew is by making sure your dish sponge or scrubber brush gets completely dry between uses –– and it can’t do that while lying in the sink. This sling makes it easier to keep your sponge dry and your home clean. Plus, it frees up space on your countertops. BOOM! Instant storage.
Keep Your Coffee Pods Close
If you like a lot of different flavors of coffee but find it a challenge to store everything neatly and still be able to reach everything, this rolling coffee pod drawer will solve all your problems. (O.K., maybe not all your problems, but at least your coffee problems.) This drawer holds up to 36 pods, and its design allows you to place it right under your existing coffee pot without taking up extra room.
A Hanging Organizer That Goes Anywhere
I’m smitten with these adorable hanging wire baskets that have limitless possibilities. Add them to your kitchen as a place to store loose produce. Hang them in your laundry room to keep detergent and fabric softener close. Throw them in the garage to corral toys or car-cleaning supplies. Each basket has a removable chalkboard that you can customize as your uses for this product change.
Storage Drawers To Hide Everything Away
When I first saw these wooden storage drawers, I thought “advent calendar,” and while you could definitely use it for that, it’s best served as a whimsical storage option. Whether you use it for makeup, jewelry, art supplies, crafting materials, or toys, the various-sized drawers offer space for numerous things. If you’re especially talented, you can finish this unfinished wood in the color or stain of your choice.
Hello, Hall Tree
Oh, to have room for this hall tree! I love the multi-function use of this hall tree for a mudroom or entryway. It has hooks for coats, sweaters, or umbrellas, an easy spot to sit down, and shelves for shoes or other necessities. The industrial-chic design will blend easily into any home decor, creating a “hub” for your family’s comings and goings and an organized way to step out of the day’s coat, shoes, and bags.
Hang A Hammock
These toys are just a-swingin’! A storage hammock is a genius solution for getting the mess that’s on the floor into a space that’s never really used: The air above your head. This product comes in a two-pack and a jumbo size that can fit 30 or more stuffed animals. The best part is that your kiddos won’t “miss” their friends with them, hanging out right there in front of them.
This Outdoor Side Table is an Instant Party
This Patio Side Table is an instant party. It has a built-in 7.5-gallon cooler that holds forty 12 ounce cans and ice. The pop-up design means it can be used as a normal side table until you need to access your drinks. Why have a bulky cooler taking up space on your deck or patio when you can have this ingenious 2-in-1?
You’re Not Alone On This Kitchen Island
If you’ve always lusted after a kitchen island, but just don’t have the room, let me present your “happy medium.” This rolling kitchen cart island gives you the extra room you need without taking up a lot of — well — room. Get your microwave off of your kitchen counter to free up space there or keep dishes or pots and pans easily within reach. It’s available with either a natural brown or black top.
Stack Files In An Orderly Manner
When I bought my home office desk a few years ago, I thought it was a great find: Streamlined and chic, with just enough room for my computer and maybe a candle. Fast-forward to working from home, and that same desk, I’m discovering, is not as effective as I thought. One thing that might help is this set of file organizers/stackable trays designed to tame the paper beast.
Add Extra Space To Your Workstation
What do you do with those few desk accessories you need within reach but also out of your way? Try this clamp-on swivel organizer that attaches to a desk, but can be turned out of the way as needed. With space for things like pens and pencils, rubber bands, and paper clips, it keeps things handy. If you want to feel really productive, put your phone in there, and then swivel it under the desk. I double-dog dare you.
I visited someone’s home once upon a time where they had one of these lift-top coffee tables, and I thought it was the coolest. I know what you’re thinking: Why can’t you just put your stuff on the top of the table? The quick answer is that you lose a working surface for, say, your dinner or a laptop. With this design, you can still store necessary items in the hidden compartment and have the top of the table accessible for other activities.
Hide It Behind Books
Whether you have bookshelves in your home or not, this hidden storage book box is a smart-looking addition to your home while providing a hiding place for valuables. The outside is made from real vintage books and sustainable wood, so it looks authentic (not fake). Another great use of this product? Hiding DVR boxes, routers, and all their accompanying chargers and cords. Smart!
A Handy Spot For Your Jewelry
Years and years ago, my grandmother bought me a large jewelry armoire that is legitimately the heaviest piece of furniture I own (ask the guys who’ve helped me move over the years). Something simple like this storage mirror frame satisfies the need for jewelry storage without taking up a lot of floor space in a bedroom or closet. Now if I can only pare down my collection of earrings, bracelets, and necklaces …
This Bench Is A “Shoe”-In
No room for the hall tree we discussed a few products ago on this list? No sweat. This shoe bench rack provides similar functionality with a place to sit down, hidden storage, and storage columns on both ends. The cushion on top of the bench is removable for cleaning, and the unique design of the storage eliminates the potential for smelly odors to build up inside the cabinet. It’s available in both medium and large sizes.
Approach This Bench With Hidden Storage
Call it a bench, call it a footrest, call it a toy chest, call it whatever you want. This linen chest comes in a host of colors, from fun to more muted, and has a folding lift-top so you can access the contents from either end of the unit. When it’s not in use, the entire thing folds flat for convenient storage. Grab it in gray or get funky with shades of lime green or sky blue.
Where are my crafters at? Whether you a scrapbooker, jewelry maker, or Cricut professional, this scrapbook cart with organizer top has dual functionality to keep all your supplies organized. As a rolling cart, it can be positioned anywhere that’s convenient and, if you have to take your supplies on the go, each organizer drawer pops out for easy portability.
File It Away In Style
One thing they don’t tell you about being an adult is how much random paper you’re going to have to hang onto: Birth certificates, tax records, vehicle registration, and the list goes on. Instead of an ugly metal filing cabinet taking up space in your otherwise chic home, consider investing in a handwoven file organizer with lid. Roomy enough for both letter and legal paper, you can simply close the lid to hide away your important documents.
Throw It All In These Bins
“Clean up, clean up, everybody do your share.” Do you remember those lyrics? If you have little ones at home, you’ve likely uttered a similar phrase a time or 20 to get them to put away their toys. This toy organizer with 16 bins speeds up the process of cleaning things up by creating open-air storage that even the littlest mess maker can figure out.
This Pegboard Screams Custom Storage
If you’re the kind of guy (or gal) who enjoys having their tools organized but in a way that allows you to see everything, this pegboard organizer might be just the ticket. Mountable anywhere like a garage or basement, it is 10 times stronger than a conventional pegboard. It allows for a customized configuration that works best for you — and which tools you use the most.
Rotating Storage For Art Supplies, Makeup and More
This rotating organizer has so many potential uses. I can see it on a bathroom vanity with creams and potions, in a crafting room for scissors and glue, or even on a desk stuffed with pens and pencils. The lazy Susan design means that you can easily spin it to get to whatever you need in each of the organizer’s nine compartments. It’s made of 100% natural solid bamboo.
Stash Shoes On The Side
Raise your hand if you have a shoe problem. Ahem, not just me, right? I always need space for just one more pair. These wall-mounted shoe racks give me extra space for my favorite accessory just about anywhere I want to put it. Made of eco-friendly plastic, these holders can accommodate all types of shoes, from flip-flops to sneakers to flats. One purchase accommodates six pairs of shoes.
Storage Above and Below In This Desk
It’s hard to find a desk that is both storage-friendly and not humongous. This one, which includes a hutch and a bookcase, accomplishes both tasks. Save storage space while enhancing your storage options for right around 100 bucks, which is a great deal. The desk surface is especially large at 47 by 22 inches, and the placement of the bookshelf is both useful and well-placed.
Streamline Your Spice Rack
Spices could easily take over my entire kitchen. You know why? Because you need this one spice for this one recipe and another specialty spice for a different recipe. The next thing you know you have 172 spices and no room to cook. I love these spice shakers, which feature six “bottles” and a tray with a slider-open design. This eliminates various sizes of bottles and is just kind of fun to look at besides.
Poof, More Storage Awaits
Here’s a whimsical addition to a child’s room or play area: A large bean bag and giant pouf organizer in one. Your little ones can climb all over it or use it in a reading nook. When not in use, it has a zippered opening that pops open to reveal hidden storage. It comes in fun colors and patterns, too, including multicolored polka dots, starry night, and fun conversation bubbles.
