When it comes to tidying up your home, there are a lot of products to choose from, which can become pretty overwhelming. Oftentimes, this means you have to go through trial and error to find the solution that works for your space. To help solve these tricky organizing and cleaning conundrums, our editors are constantly in search of the most innovative home finds that are highly effective — and often save space — so you don’t have to waste precious time doing the research yourself.

We’ve got a laundry list of items we’re actively testing, but there’s a select handful that we can’t stop talking about. So, to give you the scoop on what’s actually worth buying, we shared some of our favorite game-changing home products over on Apartment Therapy’s live shopping series, Shop Talk, on both Instagram and TikTok.

The Aosome Under-Cabinet Utensil Holders have impressed AT editors and readers alike! These convenient hooks can be mounted to the underside of your cabinet to hang utensils and leave your countertops clear of clutter. Surprisingly, no tools are necessary to install the hangers to the cabinets. Just peel the back off of the mounting sticker, stick it to the bottom of the cabinet, and slide on the “claw” of hooks. No drilling, no hardware, no mess.

Messy wires are no match for the Sleek Socket, a pencil-thin cover for electrical outlets that can hide all of those unruly cords while keeping the outlet completely usable. It’s a breeze to assemble, and if you live in a rental, these outlet covers will be really helpful if you can’t make permanent changes to the space. Every Sleek Socket includes an adhesive kit to securely fasten the white wire to the wall, creating a neat, streamlined look.

The flexible Umbra Flex Sink Squeegee fits in the palm of your hand, is reusable, and lasts so much longer than towels and sponges. This double-sided silicone tool has a flat end for scraping and shoveling on one side and a soft brush on the other that traps particles in the bristles. It quickly tackles sticky sauces and food scraps in the sink with ease, so you can avoid piling up the laundry and trash with dish towels, sponges, and sponge cloths. Once the sink is clean, simply toss the squeegee into the dishwasher or rinse it off with soap and water, and it’s ready to use over and over again.

The YouCopia FreezeUp Freezer Rack helps to corral freezer clutter and opens up space you may not even realize you have. It's a clear plastic storage rack with dividers that can be adjusted depending on your needs. Best of all, it’s nearly ready to use right out of the box. Just take the rack out and place it front-to-back or side-to-side, depending on the design of the freezer and the size of the FreezeUp Rack, which comes in a 12" version or a longer 15" style.

Don't let their good looks fool you: the Felix Storage Crates can hold way more than you'd think. The medium crate alone is large enough for cleaning supplies, movies, books, bathroom items, and so much more. As one of the top organization products at Urban Outfitters, it can be a challenge to find the size and color you want in stock, but it’s totally worth the wait. These fun stackable crates are made of lightweight plastic and can be folded flat when not in use (but we have a feeling you'll find a way to put these stylish organizers on display). They come in nine colors and four sizes from extra-small (5.91” x 3.94”) to large (16.93” x 11.5”), and they start at just $5. Bonus: If you buy five at once, you instantly get 15 percent off, no code required!
