I recently took a look around my small house and realized that I was putting up with some hassles. The closets were hard to navigate because they were disorganized. Finding something in the fridge was a Herculean task that often led straight to getting takeout. Cleaning the floors was so inconvenient that I avoided doing it like the plague. And there were cupboards packed so tightly, opening the door put me at risk of a stuff-avalanche.

So I got to work. It turned out I needed to buy some things to deal with these jobs. More specifically, I needed helpful organization tools and — in some cases — just tools. The Amazon reviews became my guidebook. I studied them and I learned things. One thing I learned is why Amazon keeps selling out of these cheap home improvement products with near-perfect reviews. It’s because they work.

01

The wireless doorbell that takes minutes to install

Having a doorbell — with a button that’s in the right place at your entry and an indoor chime that doesn’t make you jump — is a necessary home fixture. But it’s not always there. This wireless doorbell fixes that problem in five minutes. Peel and stick the transmitter button where you want it. Then choose a chime — there are 50 — and plug the receiver in somewhere convenient indoors. With 24,000 five-star reviews and many options for color and configuration, this is an easy upgrade.

02

The stove gap cover that prevents uncleanable spills

Slip this gap cover in that little space between your counter and slide-in range and you will never have to struggle with pulling the stove out to clean up a nasty spill. It’s easy to install — just cut it to the right depth and press it in — and completely covers that gap with an easy-to-clean silicone that blends right into the look of your kitchen. Choose white, clear, or black.

03

The double bath towel bar for more towels in less space

Double the storage space on your towel bar by trading up to this double towel bar that holds more towels or lets you hang some hand towels in front of your big bath towels. It’s easy to install and comes in five finishes and five sizes to fit your space.

04

An expandable storage rack to declutter your pantry

Seperating your pantry items with this expandable storage rack will give you a better look at all the spices and snacks you have available so nothing ends up going to waste. It can also handle the weight of your dishware and create more space for it all to be stored. Expand the rack to double its length depending on how much room you have and don’t worry about any scratches as the plastic bumpers on the bottom of each leg create a soft cushion between each surface.

05

These hanging shelves that bring better storage to your closet

Hang the five shelves of this closet organizer from the garment rod in your closet to get more ways to store your stuff. Folded garments, bags, and other accessories stack easily on the sturdy shelves while umbrellas, wallets, and other small items fit neatly in the mesh pockets on the sides.

06

A 2-pack of this adhesive shower caddy for levels of storafe

This shower caddy intentionally comes with two in a pack so you can create two levels of storage and have enough room to organize your products by category. Place all your hair necessities on the top shelf and body products on the bottom or, if you decide to use it in the kitchen, store your spices and utensils. Whether you decide to hang a loofa or a spatula, the set comes with four moveable hooks that can be placed on the sides. Each shelf can hold up to 30 pounds and is kept in place by heavy-duty adhesive strips — no screws or suction cups required.

07

The shelf that brings order under the sink

This expandable under-sink organizer cleans up the one area in the house that you thought was immune to order: Under the sink. The shape avoids the plumbing under there while the expandable height and width make it adjust to fit your cupboards — and the products you store under there — perfectly. Over 6,000 people give it five stars.

08

A set of powerful suction cup hooks for anywhere storage

Stick these suction cups with hooks to the wall of the shower, the mirror in the bathroom, the sink, the fridge, a window, or any smooth surface to create instant storage for anything that can hang. Store hot mitts in the kitchen, a scrub brush in the sink, or your washcloth in the shower. The big suction cups are super strong and the hooks are built in.

09

This stylish rope basket for decorative storage

This large woven storage basket is a great place to toss laundry, toys, pillows, or whatever else is cluttering up your bedroom, living room, or the baby’s room. The big handles make it easy to move around and the woven cotton rope it’s made from is breathable, soft, and looks nice in the room. It comes in six colors.

10

The smarter way to store brooms, mops & long-handled tools

Save space and prevent frustration by mounting this mop and broom holder to a wall, inside of a closet door, or pantry. Then snap the handle of brooms, mops, rakes, and similar tools into the five grabby clamps. Those long-handled tools will stay put and never fall over on you again. There are also seven hooks for dusters, gloves, and other smaller tools.

11

This set of 8 fridge organizer bins so you can find your ingredients

Tired of emptying the fridge to in order to find a small jar of jam or the fresh fruit you know is in there somewhere? Organize your refrigerator with this set of eight organizer bins. Just put all the condiments in one, the fruit in another, and the sodas in still another. They keep messes contained, are clear so you can see what’s in them, and have cutout handles that make them easy to access.

12

These silky microfiber sheets with deep pockets

Switching up the vibe in your bedroom is as simple as dressing your bed in this microfiber sheet set. The silky smooth material will make you feel like you escaped and ended up at a fancy resort. And while its softness is helping you fall asleep, its durability will keep it from fading, shrinking, and even getting wrinkled. Each size, from twin to California king, comes with deep 16-inch pockets to fit oversized mattresses.

13

This mushroom-shaped drain protector that prevents clogs

If you have hair, some of it goes down the drain every time you shower. If you ignore this fact, your drain can eventually clog with hair and the water will stop flowing. If you put this drain protector into the drain, occasionally pull it out and wipe the hair off, your drain will not clog. That’s probably why it has 77,000 five-star reviews.

14

A wrinkle-resistant bed skirt with sophisticated corner pleats

As beautiful as your bed set may be, it won’t look as good as it can if you don’t grab this bed skirt. Made of a microfiber and bamboo blend, the material resists wrinkles and fading and is even hypoallergenic. The piece is easy to strap around three sides of any mattress so you can conceal any under-bed storage containers and give your decor a more put-together look.

15

The expandable pot rack that brings order to your kitchen

If your cupboards are a jumble of pans, lids, and other hard-to-store items, set this clever expandable pot and pan organizer rack in there and give everything its own slot. It has 10 adjustable compartments with slots for pans to stand in and separators so they stay put. You can separate the two pieces of the base, too, to create two racks.

16

The magnetic screen door that keeps bugs out

Hang this curtain-style magnetic screen door in the doorway that leads to your deck or yard and it will let everyone come and go, hands-free, without letting bugs into the house. The row of magnets sewn into the center seams opens easily to let you — or the pets or kids — through, but closes behind you after you go through it. The fine mesh keeps bugs outside.

17

A rug pad gripper to keep all your beautiful carpets in place

These rug pad grippers are a great solution when you realize that the carpet you just bought is more for style than function. Rugs that flip up at the corners or easily slide around create opportunities to trip and hurt yourself. To avoid the danger and keep everything in order, this pack comes with four grippers for you to place on each corner. The pad creates a vacuum of suction points that grip onto your floor but can easily be peeled off your decor without damaging it.

18
