A set of floating bookshelves to make art out of the books you already have, and clear up some space in your room.

Promising review: “I cannot believe how awesome these bookshelves look in my room. With my classic leather bound books stacked neatly on top, these apparently floating books give the room a sense of charm and intrigue. I am so glad I got these shelves. They are easy to install and each can safely hold three of my large leather-bound books. They do not wobble or shake. They are very stout and sturdy, and I do not have any worries with the weight they bear. I am confident they will securely hold to the wall and keep my books (and sheetrock) unharmed. The metal is durable and longlasting. So many of my friends and family have complimented these statement pieces and have gotten some of their own book collections.” —Burrells

A versatile storage ottoman within a storage ottoman for anyone who wants storage space, a place to sit, and a place to eat all in one piece of furniture.


The small ottoman fits into the large one when not in use, genius.

Promising review: “Very pleased with this purchase. The ottoman is very attractive and despite being faux leather, the quality is very nice. Living in a modest-sized apartment in New York, the fact that it can easily serve all of the functionality of an ottoman, small coffee table, tray, and storage unit makes it extremely useful when space comes at a premium. There are a lot of similar products, but the fact the top to this one reverses as a fully functional tray is what helped separate this from the rest. The mini ottoman/stool is a nice touch, but keeping it inside the ottoman itself eliminates the storage functionality of the product, so there is a bit of a trade off there. We’ve been able to stash it elsewhere and use it when needed, so it’s actually a nice bonus. I’d definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a nice bit of modern and functional furniture.” —Mike Moore

A set of clear plastic bins that’ll keep your makeup and beauty supplies, office supplies, or knickknacks in ~clear~ order.


Promising review: “Great product! I bought these to put in my nightstand drawer to store small things, as the drawer is very deep. I’ve got ChapStick, hand lotions, a small flashlight, and other bedside items in them so they’re not just rolling around the drawer. I just bought some more for my bathroom vanity. They fit together nicely but also lift right out of each other. The plastic is sturdy, and they came individually wrapped to keep them from scratching.” —Sparkyj

A Privacy Pop bed tent I personally swear by for a better night’s sleep, because peace of mind is hard to attain without restful resets!

Privacy Pop, Harper Hendrickson / Via BuzzFeed

I recently bought a Privacy Pop (in constellation pattern!) and the photos really don’t do it justice. This bed tent has changed my life and allowed me to access a more regulated sleep pattern. It transforms your bed into another realm filled with peaceful vibes, privacy, and less light pollution. It has zippers on both sides, plus two zippered windows so you can get plenty of fresh air blowing through your bed as well! It’s helped me feel safer in my own bed and I’ve even had fewer nightmares since using it.

Get it from Privacy Pop for $129.99+ (available in sizes toddler, twin, full, and queen, and eight colors) or from Amazon for $129.99+ (available in sizes twin, full, and queen and four colors).


A garment rack ideal for those of us who are making life work without a closet…or are dealing with an overflowing one.


Promising review: “I have a small apartment and needed something for my coats and guests’ coats. It is perfect. It doesn’t seem to have ANY issues with being overloaded! I also purchased a tray for the bottom so I can put boots or wet shoes on it when I walk in. Totally recommend it! I have had it for over a year and wanted to make sure there are positive reports.” —Professional

Get it from Amazon for $41.99 (available in two colors).


And a set of space-saving hangers to give you even more space to work with.


Promising review: “I’m so impressed by these little hangers! I figured I’d cut down on my closet clutter by hanging basic tops from these instead of side by side, but I did not expect four Wonder Hangers to almost double my closet space. These are amazing for work shirts, dress clothes, and stuff you don’t necessarily wear every day but want to hang up to avoid wrinkles. They are very sturdy, I filled one with just cardigans and blazers and it held up just fine. They do get pretty bulky in terms of width, but you’re still using far less space than you would if all of the clothing was hanging directly on the closet rod. I’ll definitely be buying more!” —Danielle

A tiered shoe rack you can customize and stack to make room for the ultimate shoe collection.

Yi Yang / BuzzFeed

Promising review: “I bought these because they had over 6,000 reviews (!!!) on Amazon and a 4.7 rating — and I’m not disappointed. First of all, it’s a heavy-duty shoe rack with a good weight, not flimsy or wobbly in any way. There’s a matte finish so it doesn’t look cheap either. Secondly, it’s customizable. I have removed one of the slats so my boots fit on the bottom. Thirdly, it’s stackable. Originally, I had one of these, but as my shoe collection expanded, I needed a second one. I was able to stack one on top of the other (it’s designed to do so), and it looks very neat. You could also join them horizontally, but unfortunately, I don’t have enough space to test that theory out. I have pretty large shoes, and I’m able to fit three pairs (plus one single shoe, lol) on each level, and it’s deep enough that my shoes don’t jut out weirdly. Overall, it’s a wonderful choice for the price, and I’ll continue to use it until I can afford my walk-in wardrobe.” —Yi Yang

A waterproof Kindle Paperwhite that just may help curb your habit of bringing home book after book even though you have nowhere to put them. Now you can bring your entire book collection with you wherever you go!


Compared to older models, this Kindle is thinner, lighter, and has more storage space. You can use Audible on it as well (just pair with Bluetooth headphones or speakers to listen to your story).

Promising review: “The battery life beats any tablet out there and the screen is easy on your eyes. Very simple to use and understand and can be up and running in moments. This is my four Kindle and second Paperwhite. I liked my first Paperwhite so much, I wanted a second for travel as I always seemed to forget mine trying to pack it at the last moment. I have an iPad but much prefer reading on the Paperwhite.” —loveto travel

A pack of vacuum bags designed to handle all those thick winter sweaters or extra bedding you honestly don’t even know what to do with.

Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

Promising review: “WHY didn’t I buy these vacuum storage bags sooner?? I chose the large size (as opposed to the biggest size, called ‘jumbo’) because it seemed easier to move and store — jumbo is probably perfect for bedding, duvets, etc! And just one large bag was plenty to store nine or 10 *very* large winter sweaters — all collapsed down to a fraction of their size. And it was surprisingly effortless, too! I didn’t feel like breaking out the vacuum, so I just used the included hand pump, and it took maybe three minutes max to pump out the air and shrink the bag before replacing the cap — easy peasy! And no danger of re-inflation. My closet game is forever changed!!! All I can say is ‘thank you Maitland,’ for actually taking your own advice for once. —Maitland Quitmeyer

Get them from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in five sizes).


A nail polish bin boasting storage space for up to 48 colors. And it’s clear to make the process of choosing your mani-pedi colors a bit easier.

Promising review: “It fits my polish perfectly. I was able to adjust some slots for the hard-to-fit bottles, and I can keep them all standing on end which is said to be better for your polish than lying on its side. I was worried that having the weight of all the polish would make the door fall open and polish spill out, but that is not the case at all. This is well-made and very handy. I have two white/clear and one pink case. I was afraid I wouldn’t like the clear one at all as I am a real fan of the color pink and just didn’t want it to clash with my other case. I actually love the clear case more as I can see the true colors of my polish a lot better. These cases are really great. This is a great purchase that will not disappoint.” —Andrea Carla

Get it from Amazon for $27.89 (available in two colors).


A simple and efficient skateboard rack for anyone who 1. needs to get their skateboards off the floor and 2. needs an excuse to splurge on that perfect complete you saw in the store the other day (me times two honestly).


Promising review: “This skateboard rack saves lives! Clutter and death traps off the floor and added to your wall for an added decorative element. Super well built and sleek design!” —Sarah Barrah

Get it from AdliteCreations on Etsy for $99 (available in four colors).


A cart organizer ready to ~roll~ right into your life and make your stuff easy to find, or to make your decor really pop!


I have this cart in pink and it helps me keep all sorts of stuff from piling up everywhere. Be sure to assemble each insert according to the picture for a smooth assembly, as they are each sized (slightly) differently.

Promising review: “My 10-year-old twins are loving this addition to their bedroom. Keeps all those things organized. Make-up, fingernail polish, hair supplies, jewelry, scarfs, and many other little bits all in one space and not lost all over the house. Happy mom, too. And super cute!” —Kimberlee

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


A magnetic rack so you can store even more goodies on the outside of the mini-fridge in your room, genius.


Promising review: “I freaking love these things. I needed to clean out a spice drawer and was looking for something clean, sleek, and modern to hold my eight or so most used spices within reach. These have a really strong magnet on the back and hold four tiny mason jars of spices beautifully on the side of my fridge. I bought two and have four jars in each one. I could probably stuff eight jars in one rack, but I like them spread out a bit. This is just so much cuter than anything else I found. These look way more expensive than they are, and this is cheaper than the price on Food52 where I originally found them. Highly recommend!” —Alyssa M.

A set of cool and crisp 100% eucalyptus sheets that are so comfy, you might start to look forward to making your bed every morning, knowing you’ll be sleeping in cozy town at the day’s end!

Bryan Rowe / Via Sheets & Giggles

I have the blue sheet set for my bed and the 100% Eucalyptus comforter and I adore both! The sheets are an ideal blend of soft, cool, and crisp. I am living with PTSD and often wake up in cold sweats, and I was soaking my cotton sheets through to my bed before I tried these. Unfortunately, no set of sheets can stop me from sweating all-together, but this sheet set is saving my mattress from the dreaded sweat pool so I definitely recommend them!

Get them from Sheets & Giggles for $99.95+ (available in sizes twin-cal-king and 11 colors).


A makeup organizer to take your makeup collection from chaos to calm and tidy in no-time.

AnaMaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

Promising review: “It’s a great space saver. I don’t have much room in my bedroom for a makeup vanity but this worked amazing in my bathroom and saved a lot of space. I had all my makeup in a makeup box and it was just a hassle to have to get to it every morning for work. Now I have all my makeup at my reach and it look beautiful as well!” —Erica

An earbud detangler with a magnet in the center to give you easy access to all your ear buddies.


Promising review: “This little gadget is wonderful. It is soft silicone and holds the buds perfectly. I’ve tried some of the hard plastic styles and they work too, but this is so much nicer. I love the magnetic center to hold the earpieces. Seems like this is easier on my buds with no sharp edges, and the way it holds doesn’t require me to bend the wires to get it wound up again. This is one product that I would replace if I lost it!” —Quilter

Get it from Amazon for $9.95+ (available in three colors).


A hamper you can actually get OFF the floor and hang up on the wall or door. That’s more floor space for you, and it has a handy zipper on the bottom to get those clothes right into the washer on laundry day.


Promising review: “What a great idea to have a hamper that can hang! My daughter’s room has limited space and I felt like I was always tripping over a laundry basket. This hanging hamper is awesome because it has a zipper at the bottom to release all the clothes, instead of having to pick all the clothes out from the top. Attractive green color, too!” —Ellie G.

A set of boot inserts reviewers swear by for keeping all those fall and winter boots still standing like your fave Elton John song.


Promising review: “I have been looking for boot shapers for a long time to help organize my closet. These were exactly what I needed! They are nothing fancy, but they definitely get the job done. They ARE plastic, BUT that’s actually what I liked about them. When they are not in use, I can store them flat without taking up extra space. They also don’t overstretch the shaft of the boots which is a plus for me. I would definitely buy these again if I ever need more.” —Buttercup

A set of Command hooks that’ll allow you to build your own hanging rack for under 15 bucks!,

Promising review: “We do not have a closet near our front door and needed a simple way to allow guests to hang their coats during a visit. These hooks worked and, because of the white color, are not noticeable when not in use. They even allow me to hang my purse temporarily from time-to-time. Because we are renting, I am super happy that they can be removed without damage and reused again in the future.” —L. K. Lawson

Get a six-pack from Amazon for $13.10.


A hanging shelf to slip shoes, chunky sweaters, and guest towels into neat cubbies. Goodbye, closet-floor clutter!

Promising review: “I’ve had other shoe storage storage solutions (under bed box, under bed bag with dividers, hanging closet door) but this one is my favorite. My shoes are easily accessible. My only complaint is that boots don’t fit.. Regardless, this product is sturdy with two metal hangers to support the weight of shoes.” —Mary C

And a two-pack of touch lights that’ll make you feel like you walked into an episode of MTV Cribs every time you go to look for something in the closet.,

Promising review: “I LOVE these lights. They are so easy to install, they are so incredibly easy to use. The light is a beautiful clear white light. I used three of them in a closet under a staircase and they lit the entire room, which is about 9’x7’x4′. These add a lot of light. They are easy to turn on and off, especially when you have no hands available to do so; it’s just a quick touch. LOVE that feature. Also love how easy they are to swivel from left to right. I had such a hard time finding lights that would stick, were battery operated, bright, and easy to use. These are everything I needed and more.” —Kristi Romero

Get the pack of two lights from Amazon for $6.99.


Promising review: “Used this for storing my sons’ video games, etc. under their bed to keep out of the way. Love the fact that you can see what’s inside without opening but still sturdy enough for everyday handling.” —Brooke Ward
