I’ve been pretty fortunate to live in a house basically my entire life. And while they were not always the largest houses, they still had a decent amount of storage space. Or should I say it was never an issue. It wasn’t until I moved into the condo that I am in right now that I started to struggle. When you’re living by yourself, you don’t need that much room. And yet you need more than you think. Because of my lack of storage (and abundance of stuff), I knew I had to get clever with how I was storing things—especially in the kitchen and bedroom. The first place I turned to was Amazon. The site has so many handy items that help you maximize your space and I own pretty much all of it, like this battery organizer, or this over-the-door organizer, or even this under-the-bed shoe organizer. So if you’re trying to make the most of the room that you do have, I recommend these 37 Amazon items that are perfect when you have zero storage space.

Keep Your Junk Drawer Clean
It feels like everything in life takes batteries these days. And they’re always all different kinds of batteries. That’s why this battery organizer is so useful.
Reviews say, “Well designed and sturdy product. It solves the problem of searching for batteries when you need them. I see myself buying less batteries as now, all my batteries are neatly stored in one central location. The tester is a great feature, it takes the guess work out of what is normally a very tedious chore of find[ing] the right battery, making sure it’s a good battery, and determining if the problem lies with the battery or the actual device. would highly recommend this to anyone seeking to organize their battery supply”
Shoe Addicts Need This
I most definitely have a shoe addiction. I also happen to have a tiny closet that is packed full. That’s why I rely on shoe organizers like this. The pack of two can hold up to 24 pairs of shoes, keeping your closet clutter-free. This means you can definitely buy more shoes. Plus the handles make getting them out from under the bed a piece of cake.
These Storage Bags Are Great for Bedding and Blankets
I’m a firm believer that there is no such thing as too much bedding or blankets. Unless you’re running low on storage. Luckily there’s a solution—these storage bags.
Reviews say, “I use this to store odds and ends in my linen closet: extra shower mats; extra shower curtains; a couple of bedspreads—things I’ve collected over the years and don’t want to throw out but don’t use all the time. This holds a TON and zips up nice and neat to keep my closet organized. I gave one to my daughter as she was packing up for college and it held 2-3 bed pillows, a body pillow, some linens, and miscellaneous items. They are somewhat lightweight, so I wouldn’t put super heavy items in them, but for the price, you cannot be this large storage that has a clean, neat appearance.”
Clean Up Your Cupboards
Ever since I became addicted to coffee, I started collecting mugs. There’s no reason for it other than that I love them. My cabinet space does not, however. That’s why I swear by these mug organizers. The six-pack allows you to stack 12 mugs on top of each other, freeing up so much space.
This Organizer Fits Perfectly Over the Door
When you desperately need more storage, this over-the-door organizer is the move. While it is designed for purses, it can also be used for towels and other miscellaneous items such as scarves.
Reviews say, “This thing works great. It works as intended and looks good. I have only a few purses, not as many as some but enough where I was getting annoyed keeping them in my closet. I’m trying to Marie [K]ando my life, and I needed something for my purses. This works great. And I have the like smaller doors, not a full-size door. So originally I was worried it might be too big, but it works fine. I love this thing, and it makes me feel better about storing my stuff. ”

These Organizers Offer Ample Room Under Your Bed
These organizers are extremely similar to those I mentioned earlier, but they are much skinnier, making them perfect to slide under beds. While they may look smaller, they have plenty of room for shoes, linens, clothes, and more. And the two-pack will only cost you $15.
This Shoe Organizer Fits Just About Everywhere
I know that not everyone is an under-the-bed storage kinda person. That’s why this shoe organizer is a great alternative.
Reviews say, “I am so sick of shoe racks that require a lot of screws and are hard to assemble. I bought two of these shoe organizations, and I am so happy with how easy they were to assemble. I don’t stack mine, but they seem stable enough to stack too. I wear an average-sized women’s shoe and was able to fit two pairs of flats in each compartment (heels only fit one pair per compartment). These organizers look decent too. Very happy customer and will probably buy more.”
Christmas Fans Need This Wrapping Paper Storage Container
Hi, my name is Riley and I am addicted to all things Christmas. It’s my favorite time of year. So to say that I have accumulated quite a lot of wrapping paper over the years is an understatement. That’s why I rely on this wrapping paper storage container. It can hold up to 24 rolls (depending on thickness), and even has clear storage pockets for bows, tape, ribbon, etc.
This Bean Bag Gets Filled with Stuffed Animals
Don’t let the kids leave all of their toys on the floor. Instead, use them as fillers for this bean bag. It becomes a cute piece of decor while also keeping your home clean.
Reviews say, “I didn’t really believe that this beanbag would actually hold ALL of my children’s considerable stuffed animal collection. Boy, was I wrong. From tiny beanie boos to a giant stuffed elephant, there are probably 40-50 stuffed animals in there, as well as a bolster pillow, and there still seems to be room to squeeze in the occasional stuffie I find lying around. It’s such a great compromise: my kids refused to part with any of their stuffies, and we needed a beanbag anyway. It’s actually comfortable to sit on, not lumpy like I would’ve assumed. There is even a handle so you can drag it around easily. Highly recommend!”
Keep Your Desk Clutter-Free
I work from home full-time, so keeping my “office” aka my dining room clean is an absolute must. If I have papers everywhere, I will legitimately lose my mind. That’s not an exaggeration. That’s why I recommend using this desk organizer. The three-level trays pull out so you can store all of your important paperwork and documents with ease.
Because I have zero closet space, I try to store away clothes based on the season. For example, when it’s winter, I keep my shorts and tank tops tucked away and vice versa. The best way to do this is to use these vacuum bags. I like the variety pack so I have different sizes to choose from, but if you want the most space, I recommend the XL packs.
Make the Most of Your Drawers
The dresser that I own is pretty small. I don’t have the space for anything larger, which is why I need to pack as much in it as possible. I bought these dividers and use them to organize my undergarments, and it’s been a lifesaver. Now I don’t have to spend all of my time digging for a pair of socks.
Separate Your Laundry
Who doesn’t want a hamper that not only saves space but also helps you separate your clothes before washing them? This one has two different compartments, so you can keep your clothes off the floor and ready to wash in the blink of an eye. Keep it in your laundry room and you’ll be ready in an instant.
Look Like A Pro With This Bamboo Knife Block
Possibly the worst thing I could misplace in my home is a kitchen knife. Not only is it dangerous, but it totally throws me off my cooking groove. This wooden knife block holds up to 19 knives and 1 pair of scissors. The horizontal slots are angled with a wide opening for easier handling. It saves up space in my drawers for other utensils and it makes me look like a professional cook, so I love it! If you have bigger knives, I suggest getting the XL block.
Store Your Records in Style
I will forever be a sucker for listening to my favorite albums on vinyl. Takes me back in time and makes me feel all sorts of nostalgia. If you’re the same and have quite the record collection, store them in this vinyl holder. It may look small, but it can hold up to 50 albums.
When It Comes To Printers, Size Does Matter
I used to underestimate the number of times I’d need a printer handy. You’d think since so many things are online nowadays that you wouldn’t need to print anymore, but that’s not the case. This high-resolution compact printer is perfect for tight spaces and printing all types of documents, including images.
Your Clothes Won’t Slip Off These Hangers
While you could throw all of your jeans and pants into a dresser, it’s not the ideal setup when you’re low on space. That’s why I recommend maximizing your space with these hangers. They can hold slacks, jeans, towels, linens, and more.
Small Kitchens Need This Pan Organizer
I own a whopping three or four pots and pans and yet I still feel like I am always trying to find the one I’m looking for when it’s time to cook. So to say that I want this pan organizer is an understatement. The rack accommodates five pans vertically or four horizontally, keeping your cabinets looking as clean and easy to navigate as ever.
Save Space and Money by Making Your Own Coffee
My Nespresso machine is my lifeline. I use it every single morning. And my coffee corner has become one of my favorite parts of the house—and I have to thank this shelf for helping make it happen. It perfectly holds my pods, sugar, frother, and more—all while keeping my counter clear for other goodies.
This Wrap Dispenser Is a Game Changer
Alright, so this one may not be a necessity, but dang is it useful. It has three different slots for your aluminum foil, plastic wrap, and wax paper, so you can find them with ease while also fitting perfectly into your drawers. As someone who is slightly OCD, this is heaven-sent.
This Tool Storage Is Ideal for the Garage
Tell me why having so many different cleaning tools is necessary yet they are so hard to deal with when you’re not using them. Luckily, things like this tool storage exist to clear the clutter.
Reviews say, “have a small apartment, and the broom closet was always a mess with the brooms hitting me in the face whenever I took the trash out. This saved me so much stress! The slots have little rollers, and they move to fit just about any size mop or broom. There are also little hooks that can drop down if you want to hold towels or the dust pan, which is what I use it for. This is a must-have organizational tool!”
This Drying Rack Drains Directly into the Sink
I absolutely love my little condo. It’s the perfect space for me… minus the fact that it doesn’t have a dishwasher. So when I moved in, I knew I needed a good dish rack like this. It has an extended lip on the drainboard to help the water drip down back into your sink, and it has two different tiers to hold an absurd amount of dishes. As someone who sometimes puts off doing dishes until the pile has grown pretty tall (don’t judge me), this is a must.
This Can Rack Is Stackable
I love buying canned foods because I am lazy and they never go bad—a win/win for someone who hasn’t quite nailed cooking yet. Because of this, finding a specific food item in my pantry can be difficult sometimes. With this can rack, you can hold up to 36 cans and organize them by food type (i.e., beans, soup, etc.). There’s a reason this thing has earned almost 50,000 reviews.
Use This Organizer for Cutting Boards, Bakeware, and More
I don’t know what it is about kitchens, but they always seem to be one of the smallest areas of the house. Which is less than ideal because if you do any kind of cooking, you know how much is needed. That’s why I added this organizer to one of my cabinets. It’s perfect for cutting boards, serving trays, bakeware, and more.
This Dispenser Can Be Used in Multiple Rooms
“I’m one of those women that bought this for the TikTok videos I’ve seen using it for laundry beads. I’ve filled this thing to the brim with scent beads on one side, Oxiclean on the other, and we set drier sheets on top of it. The only thing holding it to our wall (unfinished drywall in the basement) is the suction thing that was included, and that thing is STURDY! I was hesitant at first to fill it up, so I inched up the fills after a few days until it was full and we use it almost daily. No slipping!”
Talk about useful!
This Spice Rack Comes with Pre-Filled Spices
If you’re going to buy a spice rack, you might as well buy one that already has pre-filled spices–like this one! It comes with 16 spices that every kitchen should have, all clearly labeled and easy to access. Plus, you get free spice refills for five years after your purchase. It doesn’t get much better than that.
This Organizer Would Be Perfect for the Bathroom
These organizers are great because they can truly be used for anything and everything. Throw them under your sink for toiletries. Or maybe you need to store your cleaning products. Heck, maybe you need to clean up your medicine cabinet. Whatever it may be, these do the job.
These Canisters Are Aesthetically Pleasing
To free up some space under your bathroom sink and keep your bathroom must-haves in a quick, easy-to-access spot, use these canisters. They’re ideal for cotton balls, q-tips, bath salts, hair ties, etc. And they’re aesthetically pleasing, so they’ll look good sitting on your counter.
This Shower Caddy Has a Perfect 5-Star Rating
Who says shower caddies have to be made of obnoxious metal that rusts and becomes an eyesore after a couple of months of use? These prove otherwise. They offer plenty of storage for your items, can hold up to 10 pounds, and are anti-rust and mildew-proof.
Marie Kondo Your Pantry
If there’s one thing that Marie Kondo taught us it’s that you can organize pretty much anything and everything. And that includes your pantry. These bins are great for holding snacks and drinks while organizing them, so you know exactly where everything is the minute you open the door.
Decorate Those Hard Corners
If you have a tight corner that you want to decorate to make your house feel homey but you’re tight on space, opt for this shelf.
Reviews say, “We were pleasantly surprised when these shelves arrived. The shelves themselves are lightweight, and the brackets are very sturdy and come with extra screws. They were fabricated evenly, so by nature of them being corner shelves, they didn’t even require a level to install. On top of all of that, they’re very attractive shelves. All in all, I gave them 5 stars for price, quality, ease of installation, and aesthetics.”
Keep Your Water Bottles in One Place
I’ll be the first to admit that I have far too many emotional support water bottles. I tend to alternate between all of them depending on my mood. Because of this, I needed this water bottle organizer. It’s large enough to hold Hydroflasks and even works for travel mugs with handles.
I Swear by These Under-the-Sink Organizers
I came across this organizer on TikTok (where let’s be real, I find most things these days) and I knew immediately that I had to have it. The minimalist design is super sleek, and it’s perfect for my cleaning products. I ended up buying a second one for under my bathroom sink for my toiletries.
Out of Closet Space? Use This Metal Storage Rack
When you want an aesthetic way to store your clothes because you ran out of closet space, use this metal storage rack.
Reviews say, “I was a little hesitant to purchase this because I didn’t think it would hold the weight of my clothes but once everything was put on it seems extremely sturdy! Came with all parts with nothing damaged and easy instructions to follow. I used zip ties to connect the two top pieces since I didn’t end up needing to expand it.
I also used old shower curtain hooks to hang additional things that are a pain to have on the shelf. Really helpful to use with my not-so-spacious bedroom closet!”
This Organizer Holds Up to Nine Hats
I have had this organizer sitting in my cart for months now to surprise my boyfriend. He has an absurd amount of hats sitting on his dresser, which is just not pleasant to look at and takes up too much space. This thing holds nine hats—ranging from baseball to beanies.
Create More Drawer Space
With over 75,000 reviews and an almost perfect rating, there’s a reason that Amazon users all over the world are loving this cutlery organizer}.
Reviews say, “I thought this would be handy and help with space management in a small apartment. It turned out to be absolutely perfect. It keeps the silverware clean and stores a lot in a very small space. I love it. I got two because I inherited my grandmother’s silverware, so there are two types of forks and two types of spoons, and I wanted things separate and organized. Two organizers fit side-by-side in a standard apartment drawer. After getting these, I picked up the knife organizer, and it’s just as handy and useful.”
These Hangers Keep Clothes Wrinkle-Free
You can bet that the minute I came across these hangers, I added them to my cart. In fact, I don’t know if I’ve ever added something to my cart as quickly as I did these. Each hanger (and it comes in a pack of 12) holds five different items, so you can hold 60 pieces while barely taking up any space.
These Bins Cost Less Than $25
If you’re looking for pantry bins that are a little bit larger than the ones I mentioned earlier, try these out. Because they have different slots, you can fit different kinds of snacks in each one. They’d be perfect for protein bars, individual bags of trail mix or nuts, travel baby food packets, etc.
This Rolling Rack Is a Simple Solution
I love using a rolling rack because it makes me feel like I’m shopping when in reality, I am just browsing my own closet. The double-rod design can accommodate double the number of clothes you may be used to, and the wheels make it super easy to move around if you’re constantly shifting things.
