30 Products That'll Help Organize Hidden Messes

Life is a giant mess — but these products are here to help.

Hidden messes are so real. For example, maybe you or a family member is a proud owner of a gaming console and all of your little game cards are left strewn around the house. Perhaps you’ve accumulated a collection of reusable water bottles over the years (same) and could benefit from having a space where you neatly store all of them together. Or maybe you’re just tired of having to waste an opened bottle of wine simply because you don’t have enough space to stand it upright in your fridge. Whatever the case may be, we have you covered. Hidden messes are now a thing of the past.

1
A nifty shelving unit
Made specifically for the unruly collection of water bottles you've accumulated over the years. This will make it much easier to grab the one you want for the day and put it back once you wash it.

Promising review: "I have a bad habit of buying reusable water bottles. This one is cute, this one has this feature, this one has that. What resulted was a cluttered cabinet, a ton of water bottles falling on me every time I went to get one, and I was only using the handful right at the front. This is a great solution! It keeps the cupboard organized and I can see what I have and quickly grab the bottle I need. As a bonus, it also creates a built-in limitation on how many water bottles I can have at any given time. Really recommend." —Miki

Get it from Amazon for $16.87 (available in three finishes).

A can dispensing rack to hold all your favorite sodas
It's finally time to ditch those flimsy cardboard boxes.

The cans roll easily from the top of the rack down to the bottom where they sit in a little cradle waiting to be used. You pull out a can and another rolls into its place. Really beats rooting around in the refrigerator knocking over other cans and bottles, cartons of milk and what have you." —Nancy Pearson

19
A tea bag organizer
Because tea time is supposed to be a relaxing, orderly experience. You'll save so much space once you get rid of those unnecessary boxes.

Promising review: "Do I really need a tea bag organizer? That's what I was thinking when I ordered this. And when I took it out of the box. And when I filled the first little bag holder. But as the pile of empty boxes grew larger, I knew the answer was yes, I do need a tea bag organizer. I was using a whole shelf and a half of jumbled tea boxes which I had to sift through to look for a specific tea. In the end, I think this held about eight or nine boxes of tea bags (I crammed some of them). I am so happy that I got this!" —Sarah C.

21
A super useful caddy
It'll add some storage pockets to the side of your couch. No more frantically searching for your remote or AirPods when its time for yet another Zoom meeting!

Promising review: "I bought this for the sole purpose of keeping all our remotes in one place. (Let's face it; has a universal remote EVER worked?) So, we now have the remotes each in their own pocket and can grab the one we want right away. Nothing gets lost, the table doesn't get scratched from tossing the remote on the table, and due to the color you barely notice it's over the arm of the couch. This is well made of sturdy fabric, and long enough to tuck under the couch cushion." —Kathy

Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in four sizes and 26 colors).
22
A two-tiered turntable
So you can spin all of your spices and canned goods instead of taking them out one-by-one just to find what you need.

Promising review: "This turned a mess of a cabinet into an organized cabinet. We use A LOT of spices and it was always a nightmare to find the right one. Now I just spin to find what I want. It’s a nice height too and allows for different size bottles to be placed on the racks." —Vegmom

Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in 14 colors).
23
Or a set of spice-gripper clips
Because your kitchen is way too small to not be utilizing literally every single inch of space inside your cabinet.

Promising review: "OMG, I love these things! Such a simple idea; how did I ever live without them? ... They hold all different circumferences of spice bottles. If some spices are too big to place all in the same connected row, you can cut off a tab and separate them. It doesn’t really affect the items on the shelves; you just have to push them back a little (maybe half an inch or so), so the spices have clearance when the door is shut." —Bridget D.

Get a set of six strips from Amazon for $9.97.
24
An over-the-door shoe rack
Perfect for the person with a heel collection to rival Carrie Bradshaw's. The racks easily fold in if you need a little extra space for your rain boots and super tall pumps.

Promising review: "Me and my boyfriend recently moved in together and one of my main concerns was our combined shoe storage. We just installed this last week and I felt compelled to write a review because it is THE BEST shoe storage solution I have ever come across. I've tried under the bed, over the door pockets, shelves, stands, you name it... but this one is just the most organized, most logical storage ever." —Kathleen

Get it from Amazon for $34.58.
25
An adjustable wrap stand
So you can easily find your plastic wrap and aluminum foil — because be honest, you usually just throw them in a random cabinet and hope you remember where you put them later.

Promising review: "Just what I needed! Great product! It stands perfectly well with or without boxes in it. It is a real game-changer for my cupboard because now my boxes are organized and not all mumble-jumbled falling out when I open the door!" —Bethay

Get it from Amazon for $18.90.
26
A storage strip
It'll keep your brooms and mops off the floor and free up some much-needed space in your utility closet. It might even convince you to clean more, but no promises.

Promising review: "I have had sticky hooks hanging on my laundry room wall to hold my cleaning devices but they keep falling down. This holder is much better. It anchors right into the studs and not only holds all my mops and brooms and such but also has some hooks to hold my cleaning cloths. It’s a great organizational item and is sturdy along with being a great space-saver. Great purchase." —SpedTeach

Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in two colors).

Get it from Trophy Bit on Etsy for $9.95+ (available in two sizes).
28
An expandable shelf
It'll make it easy to stack all your coffee cups and bowls. The shelf itself is easily stackable, so you can buy a few and create multiple levels.

Promising review: "I really needed something to store my big pots and pans in the cabinet. I have other racks in which I have stored small- to medium-sized pots and lids but for big ones I needed something different. I just took a chance and ordered this. I was worried that this is going to be very flimsy. I was wrong. It's very strong. I have expanded the rack and put two big pots/pans on top and two big on the bottom. It's amazing how much space my cabinet has now. This is really a good buy." —Mrspjr

Get it from Amazon for $16.87 (available in two colors).
29
A hanger specifically made for belts
Because you're too grown to be throwing them over your closet rod and hoping they don't fall down.

Promising review: "I was aware that there were belt hangers out there but I had never seen one like this! It's perfect! I have a load of belts but I just had them rolled up in drawers until I needed the space so I just went to Amazon (doesn't everyone?) Couldn't believe my luck when I saw this - it's amazing and amazingly simple! Who knew?" —PattyK92

Get it from Amazon for $14.49.

And an over-the-cabinet storage shelf
So you'll always have an easy way to store your cutting boards and smaller pans instead of mindlessly throwing them in and hoping for the best.

Promising review: "This organizer is so useful! I recently moved and ended up with a much smaller kitchen, so I've been doing everything I can to make sure there's a place for everything and no wasted space. Luckily, I have pretty wide cabinets, so this works out perfectly. I have one holding my cutting boards (four standard plastic boards) and another holding my foil, cling wrap, and parchment paper boxes. The organizer is super easy to assemble and it's completely versatile — hang it over the cabinet door or attach it to the wall/cabinet door, which means it's great for renters and owners." —Kerry
