Maybe you’re just a casual Amazon shopper, or perhaps you have a new Prime package at your doorstep practically every single day. No matter which camp you fall in, you probably know Amazon is chock-full of invaluable home organization and decor products — almost dangerously so when it comes to one-click shopping. That said, some of these items really do make all the difference at home, both decoratively and in terms of function. Below you’ll find nine of my all-time favorite Amazon game-changers that are budget-friendly and will make your space appear much more put together in a snap — I promise!

ClosetMaid 8983 Stackable 15-Unit Organizer, White

For ages I had been wanting to say goodbye to my over the door shoe holders and opt for a more sophisticated organization solution. When I came across these affordable cubbies, I was sold. I have two of them, and they fit on the top shelf of my closet and allow me to easily (and often hurriedly) grab whatever pair of shoes I need. The inside of my closet may never look as organized as a celebrity’s, but I will say that this cubby system is pretty darn aesthetically pleasing.

Golden State Art, 11×14 Black Photo Frame with Burgundy & Gold Border Lines

When possible, I prefer to frame art prints on my own to save money; pro framing can be a major investment! I’ve ordered many sets of affordable picture frames over the years, but this sophisticated duo has to be my favorite. I can’t get enough of the chic black and gold design and how great they look hanging in a row in my bedroom (I purchased four in total). At just $40 for a two-pack, their price can’t be beat.

SAFAVIEH Natural Fiber Collection 8′ x 10′ Marble / Beige

Everyone needs a classic jute rug in their life. This one is currently in my living room, and I always get compliments on it. Whether you style it alone or place a smaller, more colorful rug on top, you’ll love this piece. Jute is known for being durable and easy to clean, too, so it’s an excellent choice for high traffic areas of the home. Considering its large size, this carpet’s also a pretty decent budget buy.

HEMOUR Curtain Holdbacks, 2pcs Wall Mounted Hooks Drapery Tiebacks with Screws

Sometimes you just need a no-frills solution for tying back your curtains to let all the sunlight in during the day. There isn’t much wall space next to my living room windows, so when I found these hooks (which come in a set of two with screws), I couldn’t have placed an order faster. I like how subtle but handsome they are while still remaining totally functional.

Shower Caddy Shelf Organizer Storage

I love, love, love having a large supply of shower products on hand at any given time — hey, variety is the spice of life, after all. Figuring out how to neatly store said shampoos, body scrubs, and other washing up essentials in a small shower can be tricky though. This shower caddy is perfect because it just sticks right onto my shower wall and contains two full shelves for stashing products. The hooks on the side are excellent for holding my loofah, and there’s even a little spot for a razor!

mDesign Plastic Expandable 3-Tier Shelf Rack Organizer

Speaking of appreciating variety, I’ve also somehow amassed quite the collection of vitamin and supplement bottles and was wondering where on earth I should keep them in my apartment when I came across these tiered organizers. I’m able to fit a couple of them in one of my kitchen cabinets and have ended up ordering one for spices and another for vitamin bottles. I can easily see what I have on hand, whether I’m cooking or taking my daily supplements, and opening my cabinet door to organized bliss always feels great.

Plastic Handle Bamboo Flatware Set

I love anything with a faux bamboo motif, and when I realized that my utensils had seen better days, I knew that I just had to add this plastic flatware set to my cart. I use the forks, knives, or spoons from this set daily and get compliments on them when I host friends for meals, too. At under $20, this set, which includes service for four, would make for an excellent bridal shower or housewarming gift as well.

mDesign Modern 4 Drawer Tall Storage Tower Organizer Nightstand

Raise your hand if you’ve ever felt personally victimized by a bathroom with extremely limited storage space. Thought so. That’s where this handy four-drawer organizer comes in. I keep mine next to my sink, and it holds everything from hair tools to first aid supplies to those little travel sized bottles I like to stockpile. If you share a bathroom with other family members or roommates, you could even assign one or two drawers to each person so that supplies stay neat and separate.
