If you clicked on this story, chances are you know exactly what we're referring to by "that one space" in your home. Maybe it's the closet right in your entryway, or your garage, or your basement, or even just a designated corner of your living space that makes you feel like young Simba hesitantly venturing into the Elephant Graveyard every time you go over there. In essence, it's that one space where you shove all your miscellaneous items in the household that you can't find a permanent, designated spot for with all your other things — either because a.) it ruins the aesthetic, b.) it doesn't physically fit with your other stuff, or c.) you don't have a proper vessel to store & organize it in. If any of these descriptions made a particular place in your home pop up in your mind, you're in the right place. And, if you're just scrolling to see if there are any home organization solutions that pique your interest, we've got you covered, too.

At first, the "out of sight, out of mind" mentality may have worked pretty well, but if your little pile of things has grown into a clutter monster over time, we've come to help you rescue your home from impending visual disaster.

According to one shopper, "I got these for my bathroom cabinets so I could try to get some sort of organization with all of the stuff piled in them. These are great! I got one that was half the width of the cabinet and one that was a quarter so there's a little room between them and lets them slide easily. All of my gifted soaps, perfumes and scrunchies finally have an organized home! I plan on buying more"

The mirror-cabinet has 14,000+ five-star Amazon reviews. One shopper raved, "I love it! I have all of jewelry visible at one time. You don't have to look through drawers or boxes hunting for the jewelry I want to wear. I chose to hang mine on the wall to save space in my room. It was very easy to hang. It really looks nice. I'm 100% satisfied for the price and size."

They're designed with a large transparent plastic lid and built-in label holder so you can instantly identify the contents, and they're also equipped with thick handles on three sides for easy transporting.

One Amazon shopper wrote, "Using these for under the bed storage for a 10 y/o's clothes. They hold up well if you put clothes in them. They will not stand up as straight if they are nearly empty.. just fyi. They hold just as much as her old dresser and I like how you can over fill them and they will still zip, unlike a dresser drawer. We are also using some for my daughters school, arts, and crafts memorabilia and we have 3 years of stuff in there and I can still zip it!! We have bought 3 rounds of these for our house. Their under everyone's beds! Highly recommend if your looking for a quick easy storage solution. I also like how I can keep spiders and bugs out of these!"

They're designed with a triple-seal turbo valve & double-zip seal, and they come with a hand pump for easy use. There are a variety of sizes & bundles to choose from.

One Amazon shopper called these bags "Perfect for small spaces." They explained, "I am very limited on storage and store with minimal space. I have a 2 year old and a 3 year old and lots of hand me downs. I am able to store items by sizes and reuse the bags. It's so simple that I can open and restore in just a few minutes. Lots of bags included and even includes smaller bags for travel. The bags are so thin I can stack multiple under the bed and can easily be moved."

Command 2-Grippers Plastic Storage Hook in Grey/White

Brooms & mops can be super tricky to store, and if you're tired of them constantly falling over (and sometimes hitting you in the head) whenever you open your storage closet, these storage hooks with 30,400+ five-star Amazon reviews are an absolutely game-changer. The package includes four adhesive strips and two Command broom/mop grippers that can each hold up to four pounds. They seamlessly mount onto walls without leaving holes, marks, or sticky residue, making them great for renters as well.

One shopper raved, "I originally only bought the 2 pack and have since bought 6 more. These work so well and are so versatile in what they can hold! They stick to the wall with zero damage to the wall and can hold heavy items. It's easy to put the handles in and out of the holder and grips them tightly so no slipping or falling. I've had some on the wall for a year now with heavy items like a swiffer and have had zero issues. I even use them in my bathroom - I hang my electric scrubbing brush handle up in the corner of my linen closet and the handheld shower head on my shower wall - I wanted something that could be removed and wouldn't damage the tile but was worried the water and steam would keep it from sticking well. Nope - it's been up for 9ish months with zero issues. Highly recommend these and will continue to find new uses for them around the house!"

The color is neutral and perfect for the space. We needed something to safely store birdseed and other outdoor items like winter salt, patio chair rain covers, etc. We have local deer that will eat all the seed in one sitting, so the small lock that was included is perfect. It also keeps any potentially harmful items like winter salt and other outdoor/car related chemicals locked away from any curious neighbors or kiddos. We have had a bunch of recent storms in our area, and so far the bin has been 100% waterproof. No leaks yet! I would whole heartedly recommend this storage bin to anyone."
