I was raised by a woman who needs organizational containers for her organizational containers. Naturally, I'd grow up to be a neat freak, but no one knew the extent of it until I moved into my first apartment. When you pay for your own space, you have an even deeper appreciation for genius organizational products. It's inarguably yours, and there are no little siblings there to try on your clothes or draw on your Lisa Frank notebooks.
You also suddenly care if people can't walk around due to the mounds of clothing, because you're the one inviting company over. If you're a neat freak like me, you take pride in the fact that people actually look a little concerned when commenting on how clean your space is. I sort of live for it, actually.
That being said, every neat freak has their messy zone. Whether it's a particularly hectic closet or an underwear drawer that looks like a bomb hit it, everyone needs a little help from time to time.
These genius items can help you get everything spotless in no time. That way, the next time you have company over, your friends can look a little bit disturbed about how freakishly organized your closets are.
1. This Brilliant Vertical Wonder Hanger Helps You Save Closet Space
The Wonder Hanger is specifically designed to save space in your closet with its genius vertical design. Each one can hold up to six hangers, and then they hang downwards to save space.
These ones are made from sleek metal that's durable and reliable. “No matter how I tried to organize my clothes – by color, by season – they became wrinkled, or, worse yet, forgotten in the crush,” says one reviewer. “I have so much more room now, I can easily find what I'm looking for, and my shirts stay neat and pressed.”
2. The Tool That Helps You Uniformly Fold Clothes
Imagine how much more your drawers would hold if everything was folded uniformly. The BoxLegend clothes folder is a gadget that folds your clothes in three seconds with three steps. Laundry becomes a breeze, and all your folded garments are now the same size.
“My dresser drawers and closet shelves have never been so tidy before,” one reviewer comments. “And it's so much easier to find what I'm looking for.”
3. These Genius Organizers That You Can Configure To Fit Any Drawer

5. Five New Rods To Hang Jeans, Skirts, Blankets, Or Bras
The drawers where you store your jeans or pants tend to be the bulkiest. Hang them instead with the DOIOWN Pants Hanger. This quirky hanger is made from stainless steel, so it won't rust or bend.

7. The Storage Bags That Squeeze Air Out Without Using A Pump
Whether you're short on space or looking to keep your clothes clean under your bed, these travel storage bags can help. Simply load your clothes, zip, and roll to remove all the air without a pump.
