Promising review: "It holds so many, the storage capacity is wild! It was able to clean up all of our various types of tea boxes and slim down the space. I should have bought this sooner." —BB

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

Promising review: "This fits perfectly across my sink and makes the process of chopping vegetables more efficient with less cleanup because everything is over the sink. Great design, well made, and stores compactly." —Amis Lamis

Promising review: "I bought this as a little gift for my husband. I thought it was kinda cool and he would enjoy. He loves it and shows everyone that comes over. They install very easily, and the bottles stick well. The magnetic is so strong it draws the bottle up when you get close, but it's still easy enough to pull the bottle off when needed. I would recommend these to anyone. They are a bit expensive but well worth the money. Great gift idea!" —Christine

The Roll Keeper is based in Kelso, Washington and run by Traci, who has been crafting for over 40 years.

Promising review: "Before getting this I was driving myself up the wall with my bad folding habits. I basically shoved all my shirts into the storage drawers under my bed, because I have a teeny tiny closet (the picture above gives you a solid idea of how small it is). This has given me a massive amount of clothing storage I didn't have before. The quality is stellar and Traci is 10/10 the most thoughtful person I've purchased an Etsy product from! " —Mallory Mower, BuzzFeed Staff

Promising review: "This organizer is ideal for people on the go. It's attractive, lightweight, and easy to organize your documents. It helps me keep everything in one place. And when I return home, I simply put it back on the wall. The functionality of this organizer is amazing." —A Ford

Promising review: "Needed something that wouldn't hang over the shower and I didn't want to have to drill holes. This product is it! I wish it had suction cups but with the weight of shampoos and such, it's holding up well." —Elmer P.

Promising review: "This is the best closet organizer. I originally bought a similar item that doesn't adjust, but this is 100 times better! Not only does it adjust vertically to fit whatever length of clothes, but it also adjusts its width, making it extremely functional no matter which closet you may want to use it in within your house. This makes it possible to switch and organize basically any closet!" —Ohgr8one

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

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 $19.49+ (available in six sizes).

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: "This was a gift for our 93-year-old mother to replace a vintage KitchenAid mixer that had come to the end of its life. We needed this smaller size to fit in a cupboard built specifically for the departed mixer, so it could not be over 13" tall, plus it could not be excessively heavy if mom was to lift and move it around. The mini was perfect and the handle on the mixing bowl also helps as we deal with some limitations caused by arthritis. 3.5 quarts is perfect for the type of baking she loves doing -- totally sufficient for a large batch of cookies, a normal size cake, plenty of dough for rolls to serve at a family gathering (she's obviously not running a bakery) and there really is nothing mini about the mixer! After using the beaters and dough hook that are standard -- mom is ecstatic! She's back to baking and loves the upgrades that have occurred over the last 40 plus years." —peaceful1

Get it from Amazon for $379.59 (available in nine colors).

Promising review: "I live in a studio apt and work at home sometimes, I needed a desk that could fold up behind couch. It was bigger than expected but still fit perfectly. It is easy to move and is very nice and adds a classy, smart feel to a room. Would recommend for someone with small space who needs to fold up for room." —Faith Miletello

Get it from Amazon for $89.99 (available in two sizes and three colors).

Promising review: "This is amazing and I have no idea I didn’t buy one of these years ago!!! My new stove wouldn’t get close enough to the wall to allow me to rest anything on top without it falling behind. This was absolutely PERFECT. I am very happy that the magnets provided were able to be moved. This allowed me to place them perfectly for maximum hold because my top was slightly curved." —JStill

Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in three colors and three sizes from 24" to 30").

It works with men's, women's, and kid's shoes — heels and flats!

Promising review: "I will spare you the horrific 'before' picture of the complete nightmare that was my closet floor. Just imagine a dusty mess with shoes thrown all over each other in a sad attempt at giving some appearance of order, and you will have a good idea of why buying this shoe organizer was one of the best ideas I've had this year. The floor now looks so neat and tidy I can't believe my eyes every time I open my closet doors." —Veronica, just an average reader, you know?

Just slide it on your shelf — that's how easy these are to "install."

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
