Best Over-the-Door Organizers
What to Consider
The first thing on your list should be thinking about which area of your home you’re targeting that has an abundance of clutter or a lack of storage space for various items. Do you need a place to hang your favorite purses and lightweight jackets in your stuffed-to-the-brim coat closet? Are you looking for just an extra shelf or two of storage space for personal care products in the bathroom? A place to color-code your olive oil and assorted artisanal flour collection? Shop accordingly, as an over-the-door organizer that makes sense in your kitchen or pantry probably won’t be all too functional in your bedroom to store jewelry and accessories.
Whichever you buy, we recommend scanning the specs on the product listing to see if the weight load is included—there’s no point in buying an over-the-door organizer for your office or nursery in which you intend to hold oodles and oodles of stuff if the maximum capacity is too flimsy for your needs.
How We Selected
In our small New York City abode, we’ve hung a lot of hats, scarves, and bags on door hooks in our day. Then, we realized the glory of the WEBI Over The Door Hook for transforming our coat closet into a place that could actually hold coats and were—pun intended—hooked. After purchasing two, we became obsessed with how other over-the-door organizers could make the most of our closet real estate and dove deep into research mode. Behold: Between product testing, poring over hundreds of reviews, and consulting trusted sites such as HGTV and The Spruce, we’ve curated the ultimate list of over-the-door organizers from your pantry to your bedroom.
Rebrilliant Dhimaan Door Organizer
Why didn’t we buy this over-the-door organizer years ago? Whether you want to store ties, medicines, and belts or jewelry, personal care items, and purses, this wonderfully versatile product is for you. Available in three stylish hues (cream, blue, or gray,) we love that you can lay out the sticky-backed multi-pocket organizers in any order that works for you and seven attachments ensure each one can hold up to ten pounds of goods.
We use ours in a home office area to organize pens, notebooks, staplers, and the like, but it would also work well in a youngster’s room to store toys, dolls, and baby care products. The 73” height ensures this organizer works well with most doors, and you can break it down into a two-inch thick piece for easy packing — because trust us, when you move, you’ll want to take this with you.
Another nice feature is that the various sizes of the pockets and pouches means that you can use this durable fabric organizer to hold whatever you need for a given season. For example, in the winter, it’s great for storing gloves, hats, and the like, whereas in the warmer months, you can store sunglasses, baseball caps, and sunscreen. And thanks to the sturdy metal top and bottom door hooks, this high-quality organizer stays firmly in place, even when you’re in a rush and rattle it about when grabbing your favorite sunglasses.
Over the Door Organizer Storage for Closet
With two metal hooks, this sturdy organizer has five deep mesh pockets to house baby products, shoes, personal care items, clothes, toys, cleaning supplies, laundry essentials, and more. It’s a breeze to set up thanks to load-bearing metal hooks that you sling over the door, and it fits most types of doors. Bonus: The pockets showcase elastic edging and there are reinforced hard boards between each layer of pockets to enhance the product’s sturdiness and longevity. At only $16 on Amazon, you might want to go ahead and buy a few to use in various rooms in your digs pronto.
Door Hanger Organizer
Clocking in at just shy of $25, you really maximize your over-the-door storage efficiency with this nifty piece. Designed to fit most standard doors with a thickness less than 1.65 inches, this over-the-door organizer is functional, durable, and is equipped with PVC protective padding to safeguard your door from scratches. The door hanger organizer features two baskets and nine hooks which users can put practically whatever they please in and on—hats, scarves, handbags, robes, lotion, face wash, the list goes on and on, so get creative.
Over The Door Organizer Hanger
The same thing you look for in a pantry organizer (adequate shelf space, doesn’t shake every time you open and close the door, easy access to contained products), you want to seek out in a bathroom organizer, with the addition of one thing: Hooks for towels and robes. This wallet-friendly find from REFLYING more than delivers thanks to 15 hooks, two storage baskets with ample room, and screw mounting that stays firmly in place. Buy one in black, silver, or white, in “simple” or “dense” versions, depending on your basket storage design preference. As one satisfied Amazon reviewer wrote, “I use this in my bathroom to hold my makeup and extra toilet paper and love it. It doesn’t look bad and is just the right size.”
6-Tier Over the Door Pantry Organizer
Easy life, indeed. This spiffy pantry organizer comes in a variety of sizes to fit your pantry door dimensions and storage desires and is made with metal containing anti-rust coating to ensure it lasts for the long-haul and gives the organizer great bearing capacity. To improve the product’s stability further, you can also use included suction cups and superglue so the organizer doesn't shake when you open or close the door. While most people use this for oil, flour, spices, condiments, sugar, etc. in the pantry, the behind-the-door kitchen organizer also works nicely in the bathroom to store extra soap, toilet paper, sunscreen, and sundry items. Choose from black, bronze, cream white, and white and black.
Hanging Storage Bags
Sometimes, form matters just a tad more than function. If this is the case for whatever door in your house could use a design-forward upgrade, this is the over-the door organizer for you (FYI: You can also hang this on the wall with a nail or wall mount bracket). Choose from white, gray, or navy, all with the same geometric pattern, and enjoy four hanging shelves to store lightweight objects such as medicines, jewelry, makeup, mail, keys, hand sanitizer, and more. A wooden bar and cotton rope completes the modern design, and Amazon shoppers call it “so much nicer” than its plastic shoe holder counterparts and “holds so much more” while sparing your view from clutter.
Over The Door Hook
This product is so great we have two in my household. It’s affordable, sturdy, and for a surprisingly small footprint holds a lot of stuff (we’re talking coats, bags, hats, camera bags, and more). Designed to fit doors up to 1 ¾” thick, you get 12 total hooks for hanging if you count the top and bottom of each hook, and the slim organizer comes in five colors (white, black, silver, bronze, and copper) to fit a variety of taste preferences. To date, it’s got 5,600+ five-star ratings on Amazon with customers praising it as “convenient storage space” and a “great low profile door hanger.”
Geistlinger Towel Bar and Basket Cabinet Door Organizer
If you have too much stuff in your kitchen or bathroom cabinets, this is the low-lift, or should we say, hanging basket, you’ve been seeking. It also works great in laundry rooms, too, to hold wrinkle releaser spray or dryer balls. The fully assembled cabinet door organizer comes with padded foam brackets for hanging from the cabinet of your choice, and the product also includes a towel bar for hand and dish towels. The basket stores items that are up to 10" so you might want to measure bottles or other cleaning products before purchasing this to make sure they are a fit.

Let’s talk about the mess that is under our kitchen sink. A good 30% of that clutter has one culprit: All those plastic bags you use for trash or reusable bags you use for grocery shopping. Whichever you horde, here’s your genius solution: an over-the-cabinet door organizer designed specifically to store grocery bags. Its capacity is up to 30 standard plastic grocery bags which you can remove in a jiffy from the large opening towards the bottom.
