If you have trouble getting — and staying — organized, you’re certainly not alone. Those of us who tend to be disorganized know that tidying up and decluttering can feel like a constant uphill battle. Fortunately, there are so many Amazon products that can help make it easier, regardless of how big or small your space is. With that in mind, I’ve put together a list of dozens of things to help you organize different parts of your life — and you might just wish you’d known about sooner.

The first thing that comes to mind when I think of organization is, well, storage. That’s why, when compiling this list, I tried to include plenty of storage solutions for every room in your home. You’ll find everything from super-versatile bins, caddies, and shelving to organizational products with more specific uses, like a magnetic knife bar you can mount on an empty wall to free up counter space. Vacuum storage bags, space-saving hangers, and shelf dividers can all help you keep your closets more organized from day to day. And in the living room, a multifunctional ottoman can serve as seating and a storage space to stow extra stuff.

Beyond adding storage space, think about what else might help you keep track of your stuff. A label maker can make it easy to designate specific places to put your things. Or, if you’ve lost your keys one too many times, a Bluetooth-enabled location tracker can make finding them a thing a breeze.

Of course, there are plenty more products to go around, and each of them can make organization a little less overwhelming. Read on for the full list of Amazon finds below.
