While you may be wondering why we're so excited a pretty basic product, we already have big plans for this shelving unit. Firstly, this unit is perfect since we are looking for items that will make some vertical space in a cramped dorm room, a small pantry or a little apartment.

From stocking it with shoes, dry goods or books, this wire rack (that comes in both black and chrome) is super versatile -- and it's under $50! It's easy to put together and reviewers are hailing it for its "very sturdy" design and low price point. If you don't need all five shelves, you can find a smaller version here.
