Each cap organizer can hold up to 10 items.

Promising review: "Just what I needed! Perfect visual organization and actually saves room. The cluttered haphazard box I had them stored in and could not see meant I only wore the same couple all the time. I will definitely order more as I have more hats!" —Anne Rhodes

Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in five colors and multi-packs).

Promising review: "The shelf installed in a snap. It has two sturdy magnets that hold it securely onto the slightly rounded back of my stove. I felt comfortable setting a full jar of honey on it, and I haven't seen it move at all as I have been cooking. I have limited space in the kitchen, so I’m really happy to have an additional place to set things I need frequently. It doesn't look like an add-on; it looks like part of the stove. I’m really happy with it!" —Sylvia J.

Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in three sizes and six colors).

Promising review: "Perfect for our bathroom! We recently moved and the new master bath doesn't have a linen closet, so we had to get creative with how to store everyday items like towels. Since they were going to be out in the open, I wanted something that was functional yet decorative. This fit the bill perfectly! We have towels from IKEA, and even tightly rolled, the rack was a bit tight, so I just used my hands and gently pulled each hook out a bit and now the towels fit perfectly. I am very happy with this purchase!" —Faye_Bon_Fury

Get it from Amazon for $23.49 (available in eight colors).

Promising review: "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." —Jerimi

Get it from Amazon for $11.98 (available in four colors and two sizes).

Promising review: "I'm very impressed with this product! My cabinet was overflowing with boxes of tea bags. This little container stores a lot of tea bags & takes up very little space. I highly recommend." —Beth McGarry

Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in two sizes).

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

Get it from Amazon for $14.97+ (available in three different pack sizes and four colors).

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

Get it from Amazon for $16.97 (also available in a two-pack).

Knapp's Knots is a San Diego-based small business owned by Anastasia Knapp who is quite possibly making the cutest macrame and wood crafts you've ever seen.

Promising review: "I love this! We have a smaller kitchen and there isn't really room for a fruit basket. This hammock keeps our fruit safe and sound while keeping our counter space clear. We've been using it for over a month without issue. Furthermore, it looks great!." —Margaret Mauk

Get it from Knapp's Knots on Etsy for $27.90+ (available in two sizes and 12 colors).

Promising review: "Our new house was short on storage space and this really helps. It goes right between the refrigerator and the counter where the stovetop is located. I keep canned goods and other food items that will need the stovetop. It holds plenty of cans and with smaller cans, I can stack them two high. It pulls out easily." —Kathy G. Guevara

Get it from Amazon for $38.99+ (available with three, four, or five tiers).

These containers have flexible sides for easy packing and an outside handle for quick access. You could also use these to store shoes, extra toiletries, craft supplies...whatever you need!

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 four will fit under my queen bed." —Kimberly Dorn

Get a set of two from Amazon for $13.97+ (available in five colors and sets of four or six).

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 in 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

Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

Promising review: "I have a ridiculously small bathroom and a super small vanity. After too many instances of my dryer and straightener falling to the floor, I went searching for an option to get them off the non-existent counter and onto the towel holder next to my sink. This product has done the trick — it helps me keep my counter space organized and provides me with a great, heat-resistant holder to place them in while I'm working through my hair. Highly recommend!" —Amazon Customer

This is much better than storing knives in a drawer where they can scrape up against each other and dull the blades. This magnetic bar comes with mounting hardware and instructions to hang it up, and it is also compatible with Velcro or any kind of mounting tape.

Promising review: "I want to order another one!!! I wish I had thought to purchase one of these sooner. The magnet is strong and holds plenty of my everyday knives. I decided to put it on the side of my fridge and it holds perfectly when you remove the back and stick directly on. I didn't need anything extra to hold it in place either. Now I have more counter space." —RayJoni07

Get it from Amazon for $15.49 (available in six sizes).

StemBear is a small business that focuses on unique wooden desk and phone accessories.

Promising review: "The cable organizer I purchased was exactly what I was hoping for! I adhered it to the side of my end table and now I don't have to worry about my charging cords being on the floor. They are organized, out of the way, and easy to find when I need them. And, no more knots in them! The piece is also extremely well made and the price point was fantastic. I highly recommend this item!" —Heather Fueger

Get it from StemBear on Etsy for $33.89 (originally $39.87; available in dark and light wood).

Promising review: "These are so much fun! We ordered the small size, which fits standard hardback books (approximately five to seven hardbacks in my experience). They're a great way to add some extra storage to our very small home, and we've placed them in our hallway so people ask us about them all the time. I'd highly recommend!" —LaBuenaVidaMere

Get it from Amazon for $14+ (available in two colors and four sizes/variations).

The lids snap together so everything is contained and organized.

Promising review: "I love this: I needed this for two reasons. 1. I wanted to conserve space in my kitchen cabinets and 2. I was tired of buying grocery store containers that were cheap in design and execution. This set does both things well. It is also made in the USA which I liked. I won't have to buy another set of storage containers for a long while." —Travis Partington

Get a set of 12 from Amazon for $26.50.

Promising review: "I am on the road all the time for work and these have made my life so much easier! I have almost every color of these and use one for my personal stuff (bills to pay, checks to cash, to-do lists, forms to sign etc.), another for anything that pertains to this specific day, and all of the rest I have one for each client. I could easily see these being great for high school/college classes. These go from the floor of my car, to my bottomless purse, to the kitchen counter, they go everywhere and they have held up great! I absolutely love these!" —Jenna Smith

Get it from Amazon for $6.98+ (available in 10 colors).

Promising review: "I love organization and this is one of the most brilliant, space-saving, organizational items I have in my kitchen! I sent pictures to my family and friends because everyone needs one of these!" —Jesse

Get it from SouthernMissDesign on Etsy for $34.50+ (available in three finishes).

Promising review: "We travel full-time and move every three months so everything has to be compact and packable. These replaced five other kitchen utensils that did not nest in each other. They sit on the counter ready to use. They are sturdy and have been used in nonstick ceramic and cast-iron pans. Very happy with this set." —Justice Talbot

Get a set from Amazon for $27.49+ (available in four color varieties).

Promising review: "At first, I laughed and thought it was too small to really do anything. I was so wrong — it's an amazing little waffle maker!! Can cook almost anything on it! I have cooked eggs, waffles, and French toast." —S PETERSON

Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in 20 colors).

Just swap out the inserts to go from one function to another!

BuzzFeed Shopping's Emma Lord says: "I recently purchased this because it was my cheapest option for making zoodles, and also because my apartment is the size of a shoebox and there was no room for anything bigger. I LOVE how easy it is to swap out the caps to do other things, too — I've started grating my own cheeses and feel very fancy. But mostly I just love that it's very safe to use (it comes with a finger guard!), super easy to figure out, very compact, and even has measurements on the inside of the cup if you're ever portioning things out for a recipe."

Promising review: "This is the second spiralizer that I have purchased, and by far the best I have used. It's super easy to use and to clean. My other spiralizer that I had was difficult to clean properly and I want to use they as often as possible so the use and cleaning of the product is very important! Fullstar Vegetable Spiralizer is a great product and I will be purchasing more to give as gifts for the holiday season. I would definitely recommend. A+++ item." —Yvonne I

Get it from Amazon for $19.98 (also available in four- and eight-in-one styles).

Here's what BuzzFeed Shopping editor Sally Elshorafa has to say about this handy organization unit: "This product SAVED MY SHOES! I have an awkward set of built-in shelves in my closet, and it was the only place I wanted to put my shoes. As you can see from the before pic (above), it was a big mess; my shoes were piled on top of each other and getting really dirty. Traditional shoe caddies or boxes didn't really work because there's not much horizontal space, so I tried the Shoe Slotz. It fixed the problem perfectly! Because the design smartly stacks one shoe on top of the other, you save 50% of the space you'd normally use to store your shoes."

Promising review: "Love these! Super easy to use on a daily basis! It has made my closet so much more tidy and I can store twice the number of shoes in the same space. Super glad I came across these!" —E. OConnor

Get it from Fused Line on Etsy for $11 (available in three colors and as a screw-on or adhesive mount).

Promising review: "I love love love these. It's the ONLY way to measure peanut butter, Crisco, and other spackle-like ingredients. No more scraping and scraping to get peanut butter out of your measuring cup, and you’ll get out 99.9% of the peanut butter you put into the cup! That never happens with a regular measuring cup. Easy to clean too. I’m forever forgetting which way to take it apart and reassemble it, but it only goes two ways (lol) so it doesn't take long to figure it out." —sandy s

Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

Promising review: "I have eight large breed dogs who have the run of the house, even though we sweep and vacuum twice a day you can still smell dog. I have little to nothing in the way of soft surfaces that hold odor and the whole house gets a deep clean three times a week, but the smell keeps popping up. I put three of these around my house and people have asked me if the dogs are not in the house anymore. It doesn't cover up the smell, it really eliminates it and leaves the house smelling crisp and clean." —Pamela Caldwell BB

Get a set of two from Amazon for $24.99 (available in three scents, larger sizes, and individually).

Promising review: "This is one of the most useful purchases I've ever made on Amazon. I use it every single day to hang my keys. I've had it for at least half a year now it seems. It hasn't lost any magnetism, and it holds my car keys, remote start, USB, rewards/gift cards, house and work keys, etc. I'm in love. It's one of the best purchases I've made." —Makenah

Get it from Amazon for $6.48.

Promising review: "These bags are WONDERFUL! I have two kids and I have saved a lot of their clothes because we are expecting to have more children sometime, and I would love to not have to rebuy everything but they seriously take up so much space! I love that the hand pump is included, easy to use, and doesn't take long at all even on the large bags. The directions are printed on each bag so you are reminded how to use them without keeping a box or instruction manual. Thank you for a great product!" —Angela Urrutia

Get a set of five from Amazon for $44.99 (available in four sizes).

Promising review: "I am obsessed with these! I initially bought a set so my kids could have somewhere to hang up their backpacks (yes, they’re sturdy), but I love them so much I got some so my husband and I could hang our coats. They’re modern and have an elegant look. We loved them, so much we plan on purchasing another pair for my kids' coats." —Linny

Get a set of two from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in two finishes).

Promising review: "I have a bit of a T-shirt collection and this tool is a must-have! I had been folding by hand but could never get a consistent uniform look but problem solved. This shirt folder is easy to use and maximizes the space on my shelf. It works great on long-sleeve shirts as well. The plastic is durable and not flimsy to use. Even came with a nice storage bag. Highly recommend this item. My only regret is not getting one sooner." —Lois

Promising review: "I actually have two because I leave one at the office. Love this method of reading. My font is bigger and clearer and it's so much lighter to hold. Books are cheaper too. What's not to love? Less books at the house taking up space." —Jude L. Stringfellow

Get it from Amazon for $99.99+ (available in black and blue).

Promising review: "I've owned this for about six months, and I couldn't imagine cooking without it. I hate strainers. They are bulky and fill up the dishwasher, I'm lazy, whatever. This strainer is a lifesaver. Clip it on your pan, strain, and voilà! And it is so easy to clean. A little hot water and it's good to go for the next round. I highly recommend this gadget, it will retire your current strainer." —Viola Evens

Because of the velvet coating, spaghetti straps and slippery fabrics won't keep falling off. And unlike similar options, reviewers promise the flocking does *not* come off of these and all over your clothes.

Promising review: "These hangers do all the work for me. I was finally inspired to rid myself of flimsy tacky dry cleaner hangers and bulky plastic ones — I’d have to size up my clothes in order to determine which ones wouldn't slide off the plastic. With these hangers, everything works, and the velvet is like an easy-to-use magnet for my clothes. Nothing slips. The space-saving design makes a surprising difference. I share a small master closet and thanks to these hangers my side is roomy and organized now." —E. Marshall

Just slide it on your shelf — the installation's that simple!

Promising review: "These are excellent quality, sturdy and well made. I appreciate that when slid in place, the front of the basket lines up flush with the edge of the shelf (some lesser brands protrude a bit beyond the shelf, making it impossible to close the cupboard properly). Look no further — these are the best deal you'll find." —peggydf
