One of the best-kept secrets in the world of home organization has to be Dollar Tree Plus. Compared to what’s typically found on regular Dollar Tree shelves — like lazy Susans and fridge baskets, the “Plus” section (signified by a “PLUS!” banner in-store) offers an abundant collection of larger finds, still at a discounted cost. Priced between $3 to $5, the items often beat big-box competitors’ prices for similar products. And among this month’s selection of brand-new storage finds are two-stack organizational shelves you’ll want to buy in bulk.

The $5 plastic organizer comes ready to assemble with two baskets, four long poles, four short poles, and four end caps. When fully constructed, it measures out to 16.2 inches by 7.5 inches by 14.8 inches, providing an impressive amount of space for your pantry, cabinet, under your sink, or even in your fridge for utensils, condiments, gadgets, produce, or oils and vinegars. 

Of course, outside of the fridge, the shelves can be used for shower items or other toiletries (the slotted bottoms are great for letting water drain!), in the bedroom for jewelry or other trinkets, or in the garage for tools and hobbies. Adding to its versatility, the double-decker organizer can be stacked, disassembled, stored, and cleaned with ease. The bottom poles can also be removed to create a flatter base. 

“I got four of these and they are great,” one shopper commented on this now-viral video of the item. “They hold quite a bit and are sturdy! Can use it with or without bottom legs. Used under my bathroom and kitchen cabinets.” Need they say more? Stock up on these versatile organizers while you can!

Love This Organizer? Then You’ll Also Love…

If you don’t live near a store or can’t find this organizer at your local Dollar Tree (or you don’t feel like ordering the minimum amount of 12 online), Amazon sells a four-pack of similar stackable plastic shelves for a few dollars more that ships right to your door. For an even chicer look, Target has a similar two-tiered metal slide-out organizer in black, brushed nickel, or white for $20. You might even try one of each — you’re sure to find a spot for all of them!
