There are two kinds of people in this world. There are those who love organization and spend hours scrolling through #HomeTok looking for the next best organizational product, and then there are those people (like me) who simply pile their clothes on their “chair of doom” and just hope that a magical cleaning fairy will place them back into their closet.

Of course, she never arrives… and the pile just gets bigger and bigger.

I guess the problem is that I don’t have a lot of space to work with. Every room in my home is TINY, which means that there’s stuff everywhere. From packs of food in kitchen cabinets to overflowing bathroom counters to messy drawers full of unfolded clothes, my house is messier than the last season of Real Housewives of Salt Lake City.

So, if you’re like me and have a small space, your rental is probably crying out for some organization help. I’ve also stumbled across some small space organization products that will make life SO much easier in the long run. And it’s not just me who is obsessed with them. The nine small space organization products below are some of the Real Homes team’s faves and are all highly rated by customers just like me and you. They’re also perfect for everyone on a budget. Yep, there’s nothing over $30 on this list because YOU KNOW I’ve got your back, girl.

Small kitchen organizers

If you only have two cabinets and one drawer in your small kitchen, it may seem as though you don’t have enough space for any of your food or cooking utensils. But that’s not always the case. Sometimes, the right product can show you that you actually have twice the amount of space you thought you had. Yep, extra shelves and racks can work wonders! These small kitchen organizers work a treat (no pun intended). Just remember to avoid these small kitchen mistakes.

Small bedroom organizers

I’m all about making my bedroom a sanctuary. A cozy little snuggle zone, if you will! Everyone should keep their bedroom tidy, and that can be difficult if you have a small space. It’s even harder if you only have a small closet to work with, which is where these bedroom organizers can lend a helping hand. Organizing your stuff will be no drama, llama.

Small bathroom organizers

Bathrooms are normally the smallest rooms in the home, which can pose a problem when you’re already living in a small space. Things then go from bad to worse when you use this room to store your spare towels, cleaning products, and the numerous shampoo bottles you’ve almost finished (there’s always at least another hair wash in them, duh). But I know that drilling holes and screws into your wall to make extra shelving space isn’t always possible, so these small space bathroom organizers could be more up your street. 

How do you organize a lot of stuff in a small space?

Hester Van Hien from Tidylicious (who is also part of The Spark Joy Collective) says to use storage containers for different items (even if they're technically built for another purpose). In her eyes, it’s all about being creative with what you buy. “For example, shoe storage can be used to store lots of different things: bags, cleaning supplies, clothes hangers, toilet paper, just to name a few," she says. "A purse organizer can also be used to store items such as face masks, paper, and notebooks.” So, while the products below are designed for a specific purpose… that doesn’t mean you have to use them for that! Get creative, y’all.

Hey there! I'm Lauren, and I've been a writer now for over seven years (wow, that makes me feel old). During that time I've written about everything from celebrities to casino content, but nothing has made me "zing" quite as much as home and lifestyle pieces. I live in a beautiful Victorian terrace house in Kent with my husband and my naughty cocker spaniel puppy, and despite the leaking roof that we can't quite seem to fix, I've loved turning my house into a home. Sure, my eclectic mix of boho chic and maximalism sounds like a clashing nightmare, but it's MY clashing nightmare.
