The Ultimate Dish Rack

Forget everything you thought you knew about the humble dish drying rack—this option has solved a lot of the common problems ordinary dish racks create. Instead of draining onto the countertop, a dish towel, or a tray you'll have to remember to empty, this dish rack comes with a swivel spout that drains water directly into the sink. The stainless steel is fingerprint-proof, so it always looks sparkling clean. Plus, the coated steel wire is rust-resistant and cushioning, to prevent chipped plates and glasses. 

To buy: simplehuman Compact Steel Frame Dish Rack, $50,


Mesh Laundry Bags

Mesh laundry bags look simple, but if you haven't used them before, they can be pretty life-changing. Use one of the larger bags to prevent lost socks, while the smaller ones will protect delicate pieces from getting destroyed in the wash cycle. 

To buy: Laundrymaid 6-Piece Mesh Laundry Bag Set, $10,


Durable Reusable Bag

Real Simple editors have been big fans of BAGGU's stylish (and indestructible) reusable bags for many years, but 2019 was the year we discovered we can order them right on Amazon! These patterned bags will replace hundreds of plastic bags—and they look good doing it. 

To buy: BAGGU Small Reusable Shopping Bag, $10,


Stylish Food Storage Containers

We're always on the hunt for stylish food storage containers, and this affordable Amazon set caught our eye. Use these to store flour and sugar in a cabinet or pantry, or let them hold trail mix and snacks on the kitchen counter.

Collapsible Storage Bins

Made with linen fabric and wooden handles, these storage bins are much more elegant than cardboard alternatives. Plus, they're collapsible, so they're easy to stow away when not in use.

An Elegant Jewelry Organizer

If necklaces and bracelets are your go-to pieces of jewelry, this organizer is a morning routine game-changer. It has three tiers so you can quickly spot the pendant or bangle you're searching for.

Eco-Friendly Food Storage

In 2019, we discovered many reusable alternatives to single-use plastic bags and food storage wraps, including colorful Stasher food bags. They're washable, resealable, and can hold everything from sandwiches to apple slices.

A Convenient Shower Caddy

When you don't have enough space in your cramped shower to store every single shampoo bottle, loofah, and body scrub, order this caddy. It attaches to the shower head, so products are within reach but out of the way.
