If you live in an apartment or small home, then you understand the importance of maximizing limited space. To keep an organized and efficient home, opt for items that serve a dual purpose. Consider accessories like a coffee table that turns into a desk and storage container, an end table that doubles as a magazine rack, or expandable cabinet racks for small kitchens.

And if you're completely flustered about what to do with your overflowing closet or cluttered entryway, an organizational revamp doesn't require a total home edit. That's where Amazon's secret section for small space solutions comes in. The page provides room-by-room organization ideas for your pantry and cabinets, wardrobe, living room, and entryway—all without costing a fortune.

To help you on your search for storage solutions that won't take up more space than necessary, we've scoured hundreds of items to find the 16 worth adding to your cart. Shop our picks by room, below.
