Table of Contents


A catty-corner shelf for some of your knickknacks and plants, because honestly, your nightstand and your desk are tired of pulling all the organization weight for all the other furniture in your room.


Psst — this is waterproof, so reviewers use it in the bathroom and kitchen, too!

Promising review: “This is so perfect for my needs. I have a small bedroom room, but needed shelving for my plant and journals. It is very light and super easy to put together. Perfect for me and inexpensive. I got the large one.” —monet

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

2. A set of velvet closet hangers designed to cling ever so slightly to your clothes, both so the clothes stay put more firmly on the hanger, and so they flatten a bit to reduce the bulk of some of your clothing (hello, all 10,000 of my oversized flannels) takes up. 

Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

I bought about 60 of these six years ago just to streamline the ~aesthetic~ of my closet, and I have now carried them with me through three closets and two big moves and can’t imagine using any other kind of hanger. The velvet locks all my shirts and coats in place so I never have to worry about finding them bunched up at the bottom of my closet whenever I jostle them looking for something to wear, and they have been a *godsend* for reducing the space taken up in my closet. I also just love how sleek and organized they make my closet look. A few reviewers mentioned the velvet coming off on their clothes, but I’ve never had an issue with the beige ones. 

Get a set of 30 from Amazon for $16.49 (available in five colors, three sizes of sets, and in shirt, skirt, and suit hangers).  


Plus an S-shaped hanger specifically designed for pants, scarves, and towels if you want to drastically free up those crammed dresser drawers by giving their contents a new home.


Promising review: “If I would’ve known how indispensable the hangers are I’d have bought them ages ago. They’re sturdy, haven’t shown any bend or breakage. I’m pleased with my purchase. They’ve been an immense help with pairing down the bulkiness of my really really small closet. An additional purchase will be soon for the only other really really small closet in my older home.” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (also available in sets).


A popular free-standing laundry hamper to subtly organize the chaos of the laundry pile in the corner of your room, or give a more streamlined look to a see-through mesh one that shows all your clothes bundled in it.

Amazon, Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

People also use these to organize piles of blankets and toys, or as extra storage for winter gear in their closets. I personally use mine as a laundry basket — it replaced a see-through mesh one, and the room looks sooooo much more organized without all my sweaty running clothes fully visible in the corner. Also love how lightweight it is and how easy it is to lug with the handles. The inside is kind of waxy, so I don’t worry about putting sweaty or wet clothes in it, and even though it stands upright quite firmly, it’s very easy to collapse. I love it so much I’m thinking of getting a second one to organize my spare sets of clean sheets!

Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in three colors).


A set of foldable cloth storage cubes that’ll be the real organization MVP, especially since they don’t take up extra space when you’re not using them. They’re great for sliding into open shelving units to de-clutter them, for extra storage on the upper shelves of closets, and even for organizing bookshelves.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “This is exactly what I anticipated, I wish they were just slightly bigger but I use them on the side in my closet almost like drawers. It’s definitely a space saver for me because we have just downsized and wanted a neat solution for lack of space to put a dresser in the bedroom. They work great — if I was using them right side up I am quite sure they would be more sturdy, but honestly I am not complaining because they work great for me. These run anywhere from $5–$10 at any store I looked at so as far as value totally worth it!” —Gretchen Thro

Get a set of six from Amazon for $18.97 (available in eight colors).


A roll-up closet organizer if you, like me, are someone who collects random T-shirts from events and various fandoms you enjoy like it’s your job. This is a great way to save space and organize them, *plus* get to admire them since they’ll still be quite visible.

The Roll Keeper/Etsy

The Roll Keeper is a Washington-based Etsy shop established in 2018 that specializes in crafting and closet organization.

Each organizer holds 32 T-shirts (16 on each side), although some reviewers use it for leggings and gym clothes, too!

Promising review: “Wish I had known this existed sooner! I was able to get three large drawers’ worth of space back by using this (which is super necessary when two people are trying to share a far-too-small apartment). Definitely will order again if more space is needed (for more than just T-shirts).” —Leigh Anne Tiffany

Get it from The Roll Keeper on Etsy for $28.99.


A set of freestanding, stackable storage bags to basically gobble up all those bulky winter clothes taking up hanger space in your bedroom closet, or all the blankets that aren’t presently in your Snuggly Things Rotation.


Plus with the clear plastic panels, you can easily see what’s inside in case you *do* need to grab something out of it real quick. Winter clothes: gone, but only partially forgotten.

Promising review: “I used to put my kids’ clothes in diaper boxes or clean trash bags but the boxes can’t hold much of winter clothes and big jackets, and the trash bags are easily to get torn, therefore, it made a big mess in the closets. These bags are large enough to fit all our kids’ winter clothes and blankets and save a lot of space in bedroom closets. Great storage bags!” —VB

Get a set of three from Amazon for $29.99 (available in three colors).


A vintage-inspired storage ottoman for your vanity, so you can find a sneaky place to store all those candles taking up so much space on your shelves that your friends low key think you’re using them to summon demons.


Another bonus? If you flip the lid over, it has a wooden base, so you can *also* use this as a teensy snack table.

Promising review: “I was using a small foldable step stool in my bedroom to reach the top shelves of my wardrobe. But you know, those things aren’t pretty. It wasn’t be bringing me joy, just begrudging utility. This ottoman brings me joy. It’s pretty, it’s lightweight so I can move it easily to use it as a step stool, and the storage capacity is perfect for things like my nightly moisturizers, my kindle and journals, and other little miscellaneous things.” —Monica N.

Get it from Amazon for $59.99 (available in nine colors).


A 24-pocket door-hanging sleeve, but don’t you dare call this gem a mere shoe organizer when it has *infinite* bedroom closet potential. Reviewers use it to organize anything in their bedrooms from scarves to leggings to candles. Get yourself an organizer that can do it all!

amazon.com, amazon.com

This is so versatile that reviewers use it beyond bedroom closets for pantry and cleaning storage, too!

Promising review: “This organizer is so easy to use and works amazingly well. I set it up on my door in under five minutes and was able to place all types of shoes in the slots. I even placed sturdy work boots snugly in a slot. The hanger is easy to put on the door and does not restrict my bedroom door from closing. The whole thing seems to be made of durable plastic so I’m not worried about it ripping and tearing. Definitely recommend.” —Christopher Majano

Get it from Amazon for $9.87+ (available in three colors).


Or a sturdy hanging shoe shelf for anyone who loves their shoes so much that they want the organization of them to have a bit more visibility and ease of access.


Each shelf can hold up to 30 pairs of shoes (or 30 slots for any other kind of storage you might want to use it for!).

Promising review:Changed the look of my closet in less than 15 minutes! Hung it up and started filling the cubbies. It can hold more than one pair of sandals easily. One pair of wedges comfortably. I even put small handbags and clutches at the bottom. Very pleased. Great quality and unfolds and hangs up in seconds.” —Chris Ledda

Get it from Amazon for $16.72.


A set of clip-on shelf dividers designed specifically for wooden shelves, so you can finally tag in all the space on that top shelf of your bedroom closet to join the organization team.


What’s also great about these is you can customize the distance between them to make them narrower or wider depending on what kind of clothes you’re stacking between them. Here’s what BuzzFeeder Abby Kass has to say about these: “I added these to my closet recently to organize my jeans, and I love them. My two stacks of jeans now stay orderly no matter how many I pull out from the bottom of the pile. It’s great.”

Get a set of four from Amazon for $14.99.


An eye-catching hanging shelf to bring some order to the plants you keep collecting like Pokemon cards in the ’90s. (Bulbasaur vibes ONLY.)

Brighttia is a New York-based Etsy shop established in 2018 that specializes in industrial and modern interior lighting and decor.

Promising review: “These brass cable organizers are beautiful and high quality. I’m using two of them to keep a plug-in sconce cord attached to the wall and to direct the cord to the electrical outlet. These little gold pieces add a touch of functionality and glamour to the sconces. Exactly what I was looking for.” —Amy Margolis

Get a set of two from Brighttia on Etsy for $11.98 (available in four colors).


A leaning ladder for a chic way to store blankets, purses, and accessories (and also flex that you do, in fact, have *excellent* taste in drape-able things). A lot of reviewers also used this to replace The Chair, or that one spot in your room where you leave your “I’m going to wear this again, but wash it soon” clothes.


Promising review: “The first time I saw this for dirty-not-dirty clothes (you know, the jeans you’re going to wear again but want to make sure you *eventually* wash) I was like “That. Is. Genius.” Apparently everyone on Instagram and blogs and the internetverse thinks so too, but frankly it works well and is better than transferring clothes between bed and chair over and over again. This was so easy to put together that even I didn’t mess it up.” —Kim Dee

Get it from Amazon for $59.99 (available in two colors) and get a pack of 20 S-hooks for $7.99.


A four-shelf wire drawer for your closet to tame all those things you appreciate but don’t *quite* have a proper home for (here’s looking at you, the dad hat collection that has frankly amassed too much power to be reckoned with).

BuzzFeed/Emma Lord

I recently moved to a place with a glorious closet that had no internal organization two it, hence ordering two of these babies. They’re perfect for organizing my more lightweight odds and ends — I stuck all my running clothes in a few of the drawers, then summer accessories and winter accessories in some others. I love that everything is visible and extremely easy to access, so if I’m looking for something in a rush it’s always both in my line of sight and at my fingertips. These were a tad difficult to construct on my own (instructions are super clear, it’s just probably an easier two-person job because of the height of these), but WOW is it worth it to be able to slide things in and out so easily.

Psst — lots of reviewers also used these in garages and supply closets to organize things like cleaning supplies, toilet paper and paper towels, and tools.

Get it from Wayfair for $56.99 (originally $65.99).


A pill box for your nightstand, because as much as we all love modern medicine, those prescription pill boxes you get at the pharmacy are not exactly a ~streamlined aesthetic~. This will help organize pills you might keep at the ready before bed or when you wake up in the morn.

Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

Pretty Picture Gifts is a Washington-based Etsy shop established in 2012 that specializes in badge Reels, night lights, wedding gifts, flasks, and more.

I bought this a few months ago because I take a thyroid pill every morning and if it’s not in my direct line of sight I will simply forget it exists, but it has also been helpful in organizing clutter on my nightstand in general — the pockets are deep enough that I put in emergency Advil in case I wake up in the middle of the night with a headache, so I don’t have to clutter my nightstand with that bottle, either. The shop also has a ton of other designs and larger pill box options if you’re looking for one more tailored to your needs!

Get it from Pretty Picture Gifts on Etsy for $8.99 (available in 26 letters).


A four-piece sock and underwear organizer to spare you the indignity of rooting around your dresser drawers every morning looking for that one! specific! bra!! that is *definitely* in there somewhere. (The comfy one, to be clear.)


Promising review: “I LOVE LOVE LOVE these organizers!! At just $15 for four organizers I took my chances and ordered two sets of four. I wear a 32DD and the bras fit beautifully in the organizers. I ordered another set for tank tops and other extras I did not think of before. I will also order my boyfriend the brown ones for his drawers. Great product for a great price!” —Elizabeth L. Blackwell

Get a four-pack from Amazon for $14.87+ (available in seven colors).


A sturdy stacker to neatly store the hangers you aren’t using, so they don’t take up precious real estate in your closet or get tangled up in each other and create even *more* chaos.


Promising review: “The struggle with hangers has been real for quite some time, I wish I would have known about this thing sooner! Seriously, laundry is annoying enough, to not fight with hangers will be wonderful. It doesn’t wiggle and seems sturdy. Hopefully it stays that way because this has saved me a ton of room and hassle!” —Kara Adams

Get it from Amazon for $20.52.


A floating hidden bookshelf that’ll more than earn its keep — not only is this a chic way to show off and organize your favorite books, but a lot of reviewers used them for clever displays for shoes and memorabilia.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Also, the weight capacity on these is NO JOKE. Even the smaller ones hold up to 15 pounds, to the point where reviewers were balancing textbooks on them.

Promising review: “If you are running out of space for your books, get these bad boys right away. They are incredibly strong, can hold several heavy books, and give your bedroom an incredible look.” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in two sizes individually or as a set of three and in silver and white).


A 3D-printed key holder/envelope keeper, aka an organizational BFF for anyone who’s living with roommates. This way you can keep your outgoing mail and keys separate from everyone else’s without cluttering your desk or the top of your dresser with it.

Crossover Designs/Etsy

An over-the-door storage caddy for all the accessories you’re constantly reaching for, therefore *never* properly putting away. Instead of letting them pile up in random corners of the room, they can all be roommates in this cute lil’ organizer together (there’s even a spot specifically for glasses!).


Psst — reviewers are also using these for face mask storage at the front door!

Promising review: “YES! This was exactly what I was looking for. We are getting close to winter and I always hate digging through buckets, or drawers, or bags for my winter gear. I put my gloves in one slot, hats and scarves in the others. It fit on my door without making it too hard to close and matches my decor perfectly! I will definitely be buying at least one more, if not more, of these for the other closets around my house. I can only imagine how useful they can be. It comes with sturdy boards to put in the bottom and in slots on the sides to help it keep its shape.” —A Girl And Her Dog

Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in ten styles).


An elegant earrings display that will finally organize all your hanging baubles once and for all, so you aren’t scrambling every morning to find two of the same pair that match your OOTD’s aesthetic.


Promising review: “I absolutely love this jewelry holder!!! I was trying to decide between this white one or the black and I am super glad I chose the white. The white with the light wood at the bottom looks absolutely perfect together. It is super sturdy and definitely fits all of my jewelry (for now!) when I have too much jewelry I will be buying another one!I am so happy I bought this and tell anyone who is hesitant, just buy it!” —Gail

Get it from Amazon for $12.59.

Promising review: “I wanted to get rid of an old jewelery box I had and get something more sophisticated and grownup. I had a hard time finding something that would be big enough for all my pieces, fit on my dresser, and look good. This does all these!!! My long necklaces fit on the tallest, back hanger and all my bracelets fit on the other two. The few rings and earrings I own display well on the bottom tray. It’s a beautiful piece and I’m so happy I bought this!!” —Embo13

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


*OR* a mirror with sneaky jewelry storage — now you can have all the decadence of a ~full length mirror~ in your room, plus all of the practicality of finally organizing your baubles once and for all.


Promising review: “Wow! I’m very impressed at how meticulously made and how beautiful this is. It wasn’t easy shelling out the money but I’m so happy I did. This is a heavy piece of furniture and matches perfectly with our bedroom set. The mirror is plenty wide and tall, (I’m 5’8”) with beveled edges make it look very expensive indeed. The inside lights when opening with plenty of room for all my jewelry and then some. This quality piece is something you’d pass down through generations. The old saying, ‘You get what you pay for!’ Absolutely applies!” —luv2shop

Get it from Amazon for $167.99+ (available in two colors).


A five-shelf hanging closet organizer to streamline your closet’s aesthetic, which was previously “oops, how did all of these sweaters end up on the floor again?”


Promising review: “I purchased this to free up space in my closet. For years I’ve always laid my sweaters over hangers and hung them up. As you can imagine, that took up most of the hanging space in my closet and resulted in many of my sweaters falling on the floor after slipping off the hanger. This product was super easy to assemble and it holds five to six sweaters per shelf. I love it!” —Nikki

Get it from Amazon for $9.23 (available in nine colors).


A record/magazine/Cool Stuff holder that’ll not only help you organize your your books and records, but will give you the opportunity to make your favorite things part of the decor.

Get it from Amazon for $17.59 (available in three colors).


A set of clear drawer organizers that will finally force you to reckon with the abyss of that “junk drawer” in your nightstand once and for all.

A bunch of teensy macaron boxes
for a delightful organizational upgrade to every corner of your bedroom, whether you use them for storing pills or jewelry or hair elastics.

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 it from Amazon for $14.97+ (available in six colors).

You Concrete Me/Etsy

You Concrete Me is a Canada-based Etsy shop that specializes in minimalist home decor and accessories made with concrete.

Promising review: “Love this! It’s so chic looking that you’d never know it was concrete just from looks! Very well made. BONUS! The seller uses compostable packing peanuts, which I was thrilled about.” —Stephanie Jordan

A bedside caddy perfect for all the odds and ends that, quite frankly, you do not trust yourself not to lose in your nightstand, with space for everything from e-readers to phones to pill boxes to remote controls for the television. It’s basically like a lil’ backpack for the bed.

An over-the-door hanging purse organizer that will not only hold all your bags, but will ROTATE 360 degrees around, so you can put on a lil’ fashion show for them every day. The 83 tote bags on my closet floor are shaking.


Promising review: “This has been a lifesaver for me! My purses are no longer all over the floor in my closet. They all fit nicely on here. I love this so much. The packaging was nice and everything came in perfect condition. I have about 10 purses on it right now and it’s really nice and strong. It fits on my door perfectly but you do have to push on the door a bit in order for it to fully close and open. However, that is not a problem for me at all. It’s very easy for me to see all my purses now and my closet is no longer a mess. From other reviews I’ve seen, I know this can definitely hold a lot of weight and way more bags then I have on it. I love the way it looks!” —Jennifer

Get it from Amazon for $29.95.


A set of trendy clear tiered organizing cubes to organize all your favorite things in a much more chic, spacious way than a full-on shelf would — not to mention a heck of a lot cheaper than a full-on shelf, too.


Promising review: “Lightweight, sturdy, and svelte. Great to combine with boxes with open tops. Requires a decent amount of force to fully attach the joints to the metal panels. Once fully assembled with joints entirely engaged, the structure is VERY satisfyingly sturdy. Can easily lift the entire empty structure and feels rigid. Highly recommend for minimalistic modular organizer shelf.” —John D.

Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in eight colors).


A faux-leather bench with ~secret storage~, because if we’re all being honest here, even the most meticulous organization plan will leave you with a bunch of miscellaneous objects that don’t quite have a home. Now they do, and it’s QUITE chic.


Promising review: “I bought two of these two years ago and they’re still in excellent condition. In fact they still look brand new, like the day I got them. I use one as a coffee table and I’m using one in my bedroom for storage at the foot of my bed. They look great and have plenty of room inside for storage. Very sturdy too. I sit on it when I’m playing guitar and it’s very strong and sturdy. I’m moving to a bigger place and am thinking of buying another one and thought I’d check back here to see if they’re still being sold. I’m so glad they are still on Amazon! I’m definitely getting another one!” —VRMJ

Get it from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in four colors).


A set of minimalist hooks for a uniform, orderly way to show off your favorite accessories and precious plant babies, aka the lights of your life.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I am chronically cold and have a bunch of very nice knit cardigans. I usually end up leaving them laying over chair backs or recliners and cluttering things up, so I bought these to have a good place to hang them. The thick wood prevents stretching damage from the weight of the sweaters, and not using a hook prevents damage and holes in the knit. Definitely worth the upgrade.” —Amazon Customer

Get a set of two from Amazon for $16.49+ (also available in wood beech).


A no-frills, simple metal garment rack you can use to free up some space in your closet, *plus* give your cutest pieces a chance to shine even when they’re not on your human self.
