Now that the business of fall has started back up, we at Kitchn are all about finding ways to streamline and organize our days — especially where life intersects with food. One major skill we rely on when the calendar gets full? Meal prepping!

Between busy days at the office (or your work-from-home desk), weekends spent exploring all the apple picking your area has to offer, and a slew of activities in between, the idea of making from-scratch meals every day can begin to feel daunting. That’s why it’s so important to stay super organized — and invest in a few smart products that will help you along the way, like this game-changing Joseph Joseph CupboardStore Plastic Wrap, Foil, and Bag Cabinet Organizer.

In case you’re unfamiliar with Joseph Joseph, know this: The brand is absolutely aces at creating smart, inexpensive storage and organizing solutions that make calming the chaos in your kitchen much, much easier, from handy spice racks and dry food storage to lid holders, and more. Our latest find seamlessly latches onto an interior shelf in your cabinet (no nails or hardware necessary!). The petite-but-mighty divided shelf can hold essential meal prep additions like plastic wrap, foil, plastic storage bags, and more — it’s even roomy enough to store reusable, eco-friendly options like silicone storage bags and Bee’s Wrap.

This handy organizer can grace the interior of a cabinet, your pantry, or anywhere else you have a shelf that is 3/4″ thick (the bathroom, perhaps?). Each organizer comes with 3M tape to help it adhere strongly — and near permanently — to your shelf, all without stripping any paint or finish from the surface when you’re ready to remove it.

Like many Joseph Joseph items, this organizer is a big hit with buyers, racking up almost 700 five-star reviews on Amazon alone. Buyers love that it’s useful for food prep and storage essentials but also for so much more, like silicone baking sheets, fancy cutlery, and other items that tend to get lost or obscured. “These undershelf storage solutions are great,” says one reviewer. “They install very easily and the hold from the 3M adhesive strip is very sturdy. I am using mine to hold my silicone baking mats and parchment papers. My mats used to unroll and shift all over the cabinet, now they stay rolled and out of the way!” Adds another happy buyer, “[I] didn’t know these things existed until I ran across them on Amazon. It’s pretty danged handy for small boxes of foil etc. I might get a couple more for those fancy silver cake spades we got for our wedding that we store in the box. This would keep them easier to access and not under the things we don’t use often.”

At just $11.20, it’s hard to justify not snagging one or two of these handy shelves ahead of fall “busy season.” We can almost guarantee you’ll find a myriad of uses for it within the first 24 hours…
