You Can Organize So Much Crap With Any Of These 40 Genius Things From Amazon
People just accumulate stuff. It's a fact of life, and there's nothing wrong with ensuring that you've got the essentials. That said, the more you accrue, the more necessary organization becomes — especially if your designated storage space isn't getting any bigger. If you're currently dealing with stuffed drawers, closets that won't close, and an overflowing bathroom vanity, it may be time to check out the most genius things on Amazon for getting everything in your life organized.
Personally, I find cleaning and organization to be some of the most therapeutic activities out there. (Maybe that's because I was raised by a woman who had organizational bins for her organizational bins, but that's neither here nor there.) If you're looking for some spring cleaning hacks or a few of the best products for people who live in small spaces, I'm your girl — and Amazon is your retailer.
In addition to a seriously impressive selection, Amazon also has some of the most brilliantly-designed products that you never knew existed. These items not only help you maximize the space you have, but they also help to ensure that all your aforementioned stuff is readily-accessible when you need it. So whether you're looking to channel your inner Marie Kondo or just tidy up a bit in preparation for the change of seasons, check out these 41 genius organizational items from Amazon.

5. These Smart Racks So You Can Stack A Shoe On Top Of Its Match
Rather than placing shoes side-by-side, you can double your storage space by stacking them on top of each other.

They even have an adjustable snap-lock mechanism that you can change depending on the height of the shoe.
6. This Silicone Strip To Keep Your Wires Neat And Accessible
Peel off the adhesive-backing strip and stick the ORICO cable management system to your desk, media stand, or wall.

7. This Special Hanger Made Specifically For Your Handbags
If your handbags are shoved into a bin or drawer, they're likely hard to reach and indented in weird places.

13. Some Genius Metal Hangers That Hang Vertically To Save Space

19. A Brilliant Small Space Hack For Your Utensils Drawer

35. These Genius Shelf Dividers To Control The Closet Chaos
