If you're dealing with a small closet, first of all know that you're not alone (it's a design epidemic).

And place this valet stand either in the corner of your room or in your home's entryway to stow your most frequently-used items within arm's reach. The stand, just $12.99, can even be used as place to plan out the next day's outfit — ideal if streamlining your morning routine is a major goal for 2019. Further de-clutter your room with a few floating cabinets, $25, that can hide away random items.


Transform your office into an organized space that supports productivity with genius products that work smarter, not harder. This $32.99 pegboard can be made completely your own based on your needs by adding shelving for supplies or storage bags for important documents and hanging reminders or brainstorm notes.
