    1. A custom organization system you can arrange to best fit your closet...or shall I say the entire guest room you're going to transform into a massive walk-in. No built-in shelving? No problem!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Amazingly low price for a great closet system. Seriously. I did weeks of research before buying (I recommend you search Google for 'Closet Storage Systems: Elfa vs. Rubbermaid vs. Closetmaid' and read the first article — it's a fantastic comparison of the leading systems). I finally settled on the 4-8 ft. Rubbermaid configurations in titanium. Installation was pretty easy, despite the fact that I am not what you would call a 'handy' person. I'm very happy with this. In my opinion, at $83, this is hands-down the best option out there for home closet organization." —Shane

    Get it from Amazon for $83.07+ (available in two sizes, colors, and styles).

    2. An eight-pack of shelf dividers to tackle and organize the ever-growing mountain of sweaters taking over your wardrobe.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These are seriously amazing! I cannot believe I waited so long to buy these and get my closet in order. They are a great price and came with eight in the package! They slipped on my shelves easily without any damage. They hold my clothes in place and give me so much more room!" —Cherise Kachelmuss

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $15.99.

    3. An under-the-bed storage container with compartments for shoes, scarves, and other clothing that you want to stow away (out of your closet!) for the season.

    Amazon / amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is the best thing I have ever discovered. I have tons of scarfs but my different organizers were just piling up my closet. I saw this shoe organizer and I realized that this can be used as my scarf organizer. This product is very sturdy, good material, heavy duty, and can fit up to 40 scarfs or more, depending how thick the scarf is. I never give reviews but I really wanted to put this up as it may help you decide what you want to do with these kinds of organizers. I approve and will buy this again." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    4. Or! A simple plastic drawer to give you easier access to all your under-the-bed goods — lookin' at you, new dorm residents! 👀

    containerstore.com

    Promising review: "My son purchased four of these to be used under his bed in his dorm room at college. They are great, store a ton of stuff, and stack really securely. As he moves around I'm sure he'll use these for years, and purchasing more when his needs increase!" —CandiedFabrics

    Get it from The Container Store for $23.99, or two of something similar from Amazon for $23.10.

    5. A space-saving shoe holder with an adjustable design for different size shoes — like heels, sandals, and sneakers!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "LOVE!!!! This product has freed up so much room in my closet! I originally ordered two boxes of six and will be ordering more. Thank you!" —Melissa Mathis

    "This is a nice product. They helped organize my shoe closet nicely. I bought some for my wife because she's a shoe lover and our closet is not enough for her shoes. By using these slots, her shoes are nicely organized and easily accessible. Highly recommend!" —Amazon Customer

    Get a six-piece set from Amazon for $14.99+.

    6. A stackable cubby so your shoe collection can grow and flourish into everything it's always meant to be.

    containerstore.com

    Promising review: "I purchased one of the eight-pair organizers along with one of the 12-pair organizers. I use the 12-pair for my larger shoes. The cubbies are spacious enough for even my size 11, steel-toed work boots! The maple finish is a nice warm color, and assembly was simple and quick. They're nice and heavy. One of the packages arrived open, but was still intact. There were some blemishes on the edges/finish, but given that these are going in my closet, I'm not too concerned about that. Overall, I'm very happy with this organizer!" —CrackityJones

    Get it from The Container Store for $39.99 (also available in a 12-pair), or something similar from Amazon for $64.86.

    7. A functional S-shaped hanger that'll free up some space by cascading your garments and keeping them nice 'n tidy. So clean! So organized!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These hangers are a must-have for every closet! These are the ultimate space-saving hangers that make my closet look more organized and neat. They look exactly as pictured and as described. These are made of high-quality stainless steel, S-shaped, and have five layers for pants. They can accommodate my husband's heavy jeans without bending or buckling. They are also versatile and compatible with not only pants but scarves, towels, belts, ties, etc. The open end design allows me to hang and remove pants easily and quickly. They are very functional and practical for everyday use." —Chrissy_Lar

    Get it from Amazon for 9.87+ (available in four set sizes).

    8. And! A handy hanger for scarves, belts, and ties. The days of digging through an overly-packed drawer are O-V-E-R, my friends.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This thing is amazing. I was skeptical about buying because some of the other reviews had pictures with lighter summery/spring scarves and my collection is mostly winter wear. I wasn’t sure it would hold all my large blanket scarves, but it does. My grandmother saw it and asked me to order one for her! This was the perfect solution for my organization problem." —Nikolette

    Get it from Amazon for $9.87.

    9. A hanging purse organizer with a clear encasing to make selecting a bag the easiest part of putting together an outfit.

    amazon.com

    One reviewer mentioned they use this organizer to easily store bed sheets!

    Promising review: "I love nice purses and I save up to buy good purses of quality. This way of storing my purses is so convenient — there's no stress on the straps, they are visible, kept safe, accessible, and dust-free in one organized place. The hook and seams are strong. I actually have 12 purses stored, and the smaller purses have plenty of room to share a sleeve. Nice product! Glad I purchased it." —Julia H.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available in three colors).

    10. A wallet (or sunglasses!) tray that can snap onto a wire shelf to give your important accessories a better home than the bottom of your purse.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love that I can easily see what small clutches and wallets I own. It makes it easier and saves a few minutes of my time when I want to switch out or change up my wallet/clutch. It's durable, easy to install, and I recommend it." —Gem Nicole

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in two styles).

    11. And if you don't have a wire shelf or room for the hanging tray, a simple (and very versatile) divider you can use to store wallets...

    amazon.com / Susan / amazon.com

    ...or plates, pots and pan lids, notebooks, binders, and so on.

    Promising review: "This is a good product — very sturdy. I actually ordered it to hold all of my clutches and wallets and it works great. The slots are the perfect size for some closet organization." —Tiffany Powell

    Get it from Amazon for $9+ (available in five finishes).

    12. A set of foldable, fabric bins for all of your off-season garments and accessories.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I don't usually write reviews because I am always busy BUT for this product I felt absolutely compelled to take a few minutes and write a review. It is absolutely the best ever! I LOVE IT. The boxes are beautifully made, with every stitch carefully done without any loose ends. The craftsmanship is superior to anything I have ever seen and I know about these types of boxes since I have tons of them. They are really sturdy and beautifully made. They look elegant and luxurious. I am totally recommending this product to anyone that wants something pretty and functional." —Anastasia

    Get a three-piece set from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in three sizes and two colors).

    13. An adjustable hanging rod that'll instantly double the room in your closet, because what do we love? Clothes! And what do we want? More clothes!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought two these and they work well. The rod slid down a couple of times when I put clothes on them but it was an easy fix; I put a piece of white plumbing tape and it worked like magic. I love how my closet looks. I would recommend this product." —Vicky

    "I have trouble reaching up because both of my shoulder joints had to be replaced and the rotator cuffs are damaged. Lifting heavier items such as coats and jackets are specially challenging. So I am using these extensions not to double my hanging space but rather to lower clothing to a reachable height for me." —Margrit Aeschbach

    Get it from Amazon for $12.87.

    14. A mesh drawer with different-sized compartments that allows you to organize your wardrobe *and* see everything you own (for once).

    containerstore.com

    Promising review: "If you like your bedroom to have that minimalist look that magazines have — try these drawers in your closet area. They hold more than they look and keep things neat and organized. They can eliminate the need for a dresser. I have been using these for about 10 years." —dfwinorder157

    Get it from The Container Store for $129.99. Or! You can custom design this drawer unit to meet your closet needs here.

    15. A multi-tier shoe rack available in different sizes that can easily slip under your clothes and offer up an organized solution to your massive shoe pile.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This shoe rack is awesome! It made a huge difference in my closet space with how many pairs of shoes I have. It's very simple to put together. I put all my boots and taller shoes on the top and everything else fit nicely underneath. It fits a lot of shoes compared to other racks I've looked at and is great quality for the price! Five stars." —Hotshot2567

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

    16. An over-the-door hat rack, because this = a much better way to store your caps and keep them from losing their shape.

    JimAndBarbie / amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is one of the coolest little things I've gotten in a while. It's inexpensive, super simple, and it works great. Here's a tip: At first I hung the hats the way it shows in the picture, but the front (decorated) part of the hat was pointed so far down that it was hard to see the front of the hat when I was standing near the door, particularly for the lower hats. The whole point of this item for me was to see my hat collection, so I didn't like that. Then I tried hanging the hat mostly sideways, and it looks great (see the picture). Now I love it." —JimAndBarbie

    Get it from Amazon for $12.89.

    17. A fabric dresser you can snag in a variety of sizes to provide even more storage space. Hello, you can you never have too much of that.

    amazon.com / Nms / amazon.com

    Promising review: "This turned out better than I’d hoped and it fit a little too perfectly in my closet. The drawers are lightweight but overall the structure is sturdy and well-balanced. It was very easy to assemble and didn’t require any extra tools. It took less than 20 minutes." —Nms

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

    18. A clever cami (or bra!) hanger that'll free up so much rod space, you may just have to go shopping to fill up the rest of your closet. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I had 37 plastic hangers holding up 37 tank tops; this took up one half of my closet. I purchased two sets of these hangers and I fit all 37 tank tops on them. This now takes up about six inches in my closet. I went from four feet to six inches. All of my tank tops are still easily accessible too, which was one of my concerns. This is my best Amazon purchase to date." —jay money

    Get a three-piece set from Amazon for 12.99+ (available in three colors and a legging option).

    19. A boot organizing system with clever clips to keep your larger shoes from flopping over and losing their shape. Plus it keeps them off of the floor and gives you even *more* room for smaller pairs underneath.

    amazon.com / Amazon Customer / amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this thing! This thing is really sturdy and is just awesome. I've got five pairs of boots on it now and I love the fact that they are hanging off the ground. I have wood floors that collect a lot of dust and so keeping them up and off the ground keeps the lint from getting all over them. I also love the fact that they keep their shape in this position. The accompanying hangers are really heavy duty and durable. I was skeptical that they may leave marks on my boots but they have a little seal that protects the boot from the metal. No marks at all, while supplying a really tight hold on even heavier boots. This could fit quite a few pairs of boots as the design staggers them for maximum use of space — what an awesome design! With fall/winter coming up, you'll be pulling your boots on. This rack will keep them beautiful and save space in your closet. Trust me, you will love it!" —Loni Simmons

    Get it from Amazon for $44.99 (available in seven other styles).

    20. A linen handbag bin so you can stylishly store your purses while still being able to see what your options are for the day.

    containerstore.com

    Promising review: "Not only is it pretty, but it's extremely easy to construct, and fits multiple large handbags. It also has a spot to label the items inside, and it fits great on a closet shelf. I love it!!!!" —SecretSquirrel84

    Get it on sale from The Container Store for $13.99 (originally $19.99).

    21. A set of ultra-narrow velvet hangers that not only prevent your shirts from annoyingly slipping off, but reduce the amount of space your clothes take up.

    Christine SD / amazon.com

    Promising review: "SO happy with these so far. I had heard multiple times that these hangers would change my life. While this sounded nice, I struggled to justify spending money on hangers when I already have a couple hundred here that work just fine. However, after needing to add career clothes to my wardrobe and completely losing all free movement remaining in my closet, I put these in my cart. Going through my entire closet lead me to get rid of a couple of things that I no longer wear. However, the difference in my closet because of the hangers alone is striking. I can finally shift clothes to the side to actually see what I have. While some may think that saving their money and dealing with a tight closet is worth it, I am completely sold on making the change. So happy I pulled the trigger. I've purchased 100 more just now so that I can do the same for my boyfriend's closet." —ChristineSD

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in three set sizes and colors).

    22. An over-the-door or wall-mounted utility rack so your most worn items are front and center — as they should be.

    containerstore.com

    Promising review: "I previously had hooks for hanging robes and nightgowns installed on the wall. It seemed to always be cluttered. I enjoy do-it-yourself projects, so I'm quite pleased with the results of this clever use of space. I can easily organize my flip flops and handbags on the wall and use a step stool to reach less-used hand bags. It helps me stay organized because I can see what I have and easily put it away. I have it installed in every closet. All of it designed and installed by me, myself and I." —LeimomiHouston

    Get this one from The Container Store for $155, or build your own starting at $10 per compartment.

    23. A freestanding hanger organizer, because closet-rod real estate is very important and one cannot waste crucial space with empty hangers! Now you'll have a proper place for all of the extras.

    Kara Adams / amazon.com

    Promising review: "The struggle with hangers has been real for quite some time, and I wish I would have known about this thing sooner! Seriously, laundry is enough of a PIMA [pain in my ass], and to not fight with hangers will be wonderful. It arrived double boxed and nicely packaged within. Assembly was simple — a total of four screws to attach the vertical pieces to the base with the wrench included. (No personal tools needed). This has saved me a ton of room and hassle!" —Kara Adams

    Get it from Amazon for $11.79.

    24. A fabric hanging organizer you'll find incredibly handy if you're running out of room in your dresser or top closet shelf.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I recently got this closet organizer for my bedroom closet and I have found myself thoroughly enjoying it. The shelves are very roomy and sturdy. I was pleasantly surprised to find that a strong piece of cardboard held the shelves up. I loved the mesh pockets on the side; I put all my scarves and belts in the pockets and they fit perfectly." —Amy Holland

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in three colors).

    25. And lastly, a nice fabric hamper (that closes!), because it's time to move on from the plastic one that lets you stare at all your dirty laundry. There is even a double-sided version to make sorting darks and lights easy peasy.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is cleverly designed, easy to assemble, and looks amazing in my house. It transforms from a flat packed item to a super strong, structurally sound hamper in milliseconds. It's so sturdy that my cat can leap onto it and it doesn't move. It fits a lot of laundry inside yet looks stylish and seems to take up barely any room. I wish I had found this ages ago but instead I've been using other hampers that break and collapse and need replacing literally every few months." —Discerning Shopper

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in single or double).
