Our 2020 wardrobe? Set. Our 2020 skincare and beauty routine? Set. Our 2020 home? Mess. No matter how often we clean and straighten up, the mess just keeps spreading. It’s like it’s growing from the floorboards and falling from the ceiling at the same time! There just isn’t enough room for everything, especially if we’re living that small apartment life.
Well, at least it doesn’t seem like there’s room for everything. Closets and built-ins are always nice, but we don’t actually need them to find ourselves in a Marie Kondo-inspired heaven. We just need to shop smart if we want a fresh start. How? By checking out the five storage solutions we picked out that will seriously change the way you live!
This Stairway to Shoe Storage
How unique is this piece? It resembles a chic wooden staircase, even including the banister, but what’s that underneath? Three separate cabinets for our shoes! You can fit 12 pairs in this conversation-starting piece, and four more if you include the spaces on the top of the steps. Feel free to also use those spots for decor, just like in the photo!

This Bathroom Space Saver
I recently bought one of these over-the-toilet shelving units and I can’t recommend it enough. It fits even in the smallest half-bathrooms, offering so much extra, accessible space for extra rolls of toilet paper, wash cloths, lotions, candles and whatever else. No more constantly knocking things off the sink or digging through the cabinet underneath!
Get the Honey-Can-Do 4-Tier Metal Bathroom Shelf Space Saver (originally $62) for just $29 at Amazon! Please note, prices are accurate at the date of publication, January 6, 2019, but are subject to change.

These Food Storage Containers
Storing your food in reusable plastic containers is so game-changing, it’s not even funny. These air-tight ones may keep food fresher for longer, whether it’s on your counter, in your cabinet or even in your freezer. They also make it easier to stay organized and find everything you need — all the while eliminating wasteful one-use baggies!

This Ultra-Modern Garment Rack
Not enough room in your closet? Or no closet at all? This minimal garment rack is a must-have. Not only can you hang over 10 pieces of clothing on it, but it also has multiple shelves for things like hats, and even space for shoes. It’s so pretty that you’ll actually like having everything on display instead of stuffed away behind closed doors!
Get the IRIS Metal Garment Rack with Wood Shelves (originally $90) starting at just $76 at Amazon! Please note, prices are accurate at the date of publication, January 6, 2019, but are subject to change.
