“During the week, I’m more than happy to drink the free office coffee. But because I was only brewing coffee on the weekend, I was keeping beans in the freezer or letting the grounds go bad on the counter. This Prepara jar in medium is a much more elegant way of storing coffee — and the airtight system makes the beans last way longer.” Marshall Bright, Commerce Editor

“I just bought this drawer organizer and will not stop talking about it. Before this came on the market, there was literally nothing that would get the job done in my tiny, narrow drawer. This holds a full set of flatware — in a neat and orderly way, no less!” Lisa Freedman, Lifestyle Editor

3. Small Milk Crate Wire Basket, $15 at Target

“This wire basket sits on a shelf in my dining room and holds all my cloth and linen napkins. I love being able to see through and easily grab the color or pattern I’m feeling on that particular day. I’m not super particular about how I fold, but this tutorial from organizing wizard Marie Kondo is helpful if you want to maximize the space.” Lauren Kodiak, Managing Editor

“This has made our new collection of chef’s knives (wedding gifts!) easy to reach every single night. Plus, not only is the strip a looker, but it’s also legit sturdy and a nice way to display our pretty knives. Now, we get to enjoy them whenever we walk into the kitchen.” Sheela Prakash, Assistant Food Editor

“Based on our site’s recommendation, I ended up getting these Prokeeper containers a few weeks ago. I love that they each have something specific for the thing they contain, like the leveler or the brown sugar softener. I’ve been baking so much more now because they make it so much easier.”Tracey Gertler, Production Assistant

6. RÅSKOG Cart, $25 at IKEA

“I know it’s a predictable pick and almost everyone has one of these, but that’s because it really is useful! I keep cookbooks on the bottom; some pretty bowls, tall glass bottles, and a moka pot in the middle; and my compost bin and usually some flowers on the top shelf.” Hilary Halter, Photo Editor

“I bought a bunch of these at a local restaurant supply store and love them for corralling bottles of olive oil and vinegar in the cabinet near the stove and for keeping sticky pantry staples from ruining the cupboard.” Meghan Splawn, Associate Food Editor
