Life Hacks

10 things you didn’t know your apartment needed

Your friends will be gushing and asking where you got it from as soon as they lay eyes on these must-have products.

Living in an apartment is cute and all until your clothes are tumbling out of the tiny closet, your kitchen is cluttered up with items you were going to use but got pushed to the back and forgotten, and your bathroom products keep falling over.

We have all been there and after a while, it really starts to affect your mental health and clarity.

So, to keep you going until you can afford that dream home, here are some things to organize your stuff and make things a lot easier. Giving you more space to breathe and your eyes something to enjoy, one product at a time.

1. Wonder Hanger

These hangers will keep things in front of you, easily accessible, and in good condition all while saving you space. You can either buy a few to just put the clothes you don’t wear often in the back or buy enough for all of your clothes.

Either way, these will last you a while.

And it’s only $14.99 for a pack of 10 on Amazon!

2. 360° Bathroom Shelf 

This is for everyone who has guests over often and doesn’t want people using or looking at all the skincare products you use.

Because let’s be real, that acne face wash isn’t what you want your new crush to see! Not only does this handy shelf keep that expensive serum out of a kid’s hands, but it also keeps things like sanitary products in the best state for longevity, and everything organized.

The $31.70 investment is worth it!

3. Multipurpose Kitchen Organizer

Kitchen counter space in apartments is hot real estate.

There’s always something trying to get some space and leads to things being thrown into drawers just to get them out of the way. This handy organizer changes that. Now you’ve got your go-to spices, knives, condiments, and cooking utensils all in one place and easily accessible!

Available on Amazon for just $39.99

4. Multifunction Cutting Board/Collapsible Washing Tub 

You want to have the least number of utensils possible when space is limited. And this allows you to wash your vegetables, fruits, herbs and whatever else you may need, conveniently and then fold it up, cut and chop the food, and then store it away in a compact manner.

For just $11.99, that’s a bargain!  

5. Automatic Toothpaste Dispenser & Toothbrush Holder

Bathroom counter space is just as tricky and this handy, yet super cool dispenser takes care of your dental needs by sticking onto the wall, dispensing toothpaste as needed, keeping your toothbrushes safe, and providing a place to store cups or put whatever else you may need in there.

It holds any type of toothbrush and is great for a family.


Only $20.98 on Amazon!

6. Kitchen Grater, Peeler, and Storage Box

This is another multipurpose kitchen gadget for all your grating, peeling and chopping needs. If you cook a lot, this will save you time and its compact design makes it easy to store as well!

Get it on Amazon for just $19.99

7. Collapsible Over-The-Sink Drainer

Your days of clogged sinks are over with this lifesaver that makes it easy to wash everything, and then just store away without being yet another thing you have to stack.

Only $20.14 on Amazon!

8. Folding Laundry Drying Rack

If you’re lucky to have a balcony, this rack is great to just attach and take off as you need to dry your clothes. It’s sturdy enough to hold heavy towels, saves energy and is thus more environmentally friendly, and your clothes will be in better shape for longer.

It’s a better investment than a drying machine for $39.90 on Amazon

9. Mop and Broom Holder 

This one is for everyone whose mop has slopped from the leaning position against the wall. It is handy but unfortunately does require some drilling into the wall so please do get permission before installing!

Oh and it is on sale right now on Amazon for only $13.95!

10. Shoe Hanger

If you love shoes but have no room to put them anywhere, this will be a life-saver. Pushing them under the bed does get very annoying quickly and this makes it easy to see which pairs you have right by your closet door.

You can get this on Amazon for just $7.97!

Make life easier and less cluttered, it only benefits you in the end!
