1.

A five-shelf hanging closet organizer for storing random things that take up more space on a hanger (such as sweaters or scarves or even nonhangable things like shoes).

amazon.com

Promising review: “This hanging shelf freed up a lot of space in my coat closet. It took an untamed mess of scarves, mittens, hats, and cleaned it up. The hangers are strong, metal, and unlikely to get bent out of shape from normal use. The build of the cloth shelves is sturdy enough for heavy sweaters or lighter toys, but I would refrain from storing things like shoes in this organizer.” —Larson

Get it from Amazon for $11.37 (available in eight colors).

2.

A battery-powered light with motion sensors so the moment you open your closet, you can see everything that’s inside. This way, you won’t forget about all those hidden gems you haven’t worn in months.

amazon.com

Promising review: “This is sturdy and lightweight. This closet rod doubled my available space in seconds. There is plenty of space on the top rod for longer shirts and tops and shorter ones fit perfectly on the lower rod, without touching the floor. Plus, hangers stay in place and don’t slide to one end or the other based on how heavy items are, and so far the rod hasn’t sagged or bowed at all. And I have all my sweatshirts and heavy fleece jackets on the bottom rod. The space will obviously depend on the height of the closet rod you hang this from, but I would highly recommend this for anyone with need of more closet space!!” —CCBunE

Promising review: “THESE ARE LIFE-CHANGING. The package came quickly to my door with five storage bags. They even give you a hand pump to use in case you’re taking the bags camping or just don’t have a vacuum handy. I tested the pump to see how well it works, perfect! I have uploaded photos of my hall closet before and after using the storage bags (pictured above). And HOLY COW I have half my closet back! I would have more room but I left out a few blankets we regularly use. I used three bags to store ALL THE items including three large pillows and several thick blankets and comforters.
