Keeping a small space free of clutter can be a real pain.

No matter how much we may love the Container Store, organization can be an expensive upgrade.

Never fear! The list below has 15 small bedroom storage ideas on a budget, so you can get your things in order without burning through your whole paycheck.

1. Make the most of the space under your bed

Under-bed storage is key to organizing your small space. Consider one of these solutions:

Platform bed

I know what you’re thinking: A new bed? But I’m on a budget!

That’s exactly why I’m suggesting the ZINUS Abel Metal Platform Bed Frame, which offers 12 inches of storage space for under $100 — in the case of the twin- and queen-size models — at the time of this writing.

Bed risers

Don’t want to shell out for a new bed? Then invest in a set of these Mr. Pen Adjustable Bed Risers, which offer up to eight inches of extra under-bed space and bear up to 1,300 lbs.

Soft-sided storage bins

I can personally vouch for the Amazon Basics Under Bed Fabric Storage Container Bags, which hold all my winter clothes — or summer shorts — during the off-season, with room to spare.

Hard-sided storage bins

For a sturdier option, choose the IRIS USA Plastic Under Bed Storage Bin. These 50-quart containers are available in packs of one to four.

Rolling bins

2. Give your stuffed animals a lift

No one is too old for a Squishmallow or two. If your plushie collection has gotten a little out of hand, grab yourself a Lilly’s Love Stuffed Animal Storage Hammock and give your friends a bird’s-eye view of your bedroom.

3. Invest in multipurpose furniture

Any tiny home dweller will tell you that multipurpose furniture is a must-have for small spaces. Here are a couple of great options you can invest in today.

Storage Ottoman

The Mxfurhawa Velvet Storage Ottoman is simply amazing; it can be a footrest, a coffee table, or a seat that holds up to 300 lbs. It comes in 12 colors and has just enough space to hold remotes, room fresheners, or any other small items cluttering up your space.

Table lamp

Go 3-in-1 with the SUNMORY Floor Lamp with Table, which has an electrical outlet and USB charging station built in!

Planter litter box

Cat lovers know that litter boxes pose a huge interior design challenge. Consider investing in a Hidden Litter Box from Good Pet Stuff, which doubles as an attractive — if artificial — palm.

4. Clean up your mini-fridge

Because there’s nothing worse than a messy fridge.

Fridge caddy

With 18 pockets to store cutlery, seasonings, and condiments, the SWISSELITE Mini Fridge Caddy Organizer is a dream for small-bedroom owners. Best of all, it comes in 10 different colors, so you’re sure to find a model that won’t clash with its surroundings.

This Drink Organizer for Fridge holds 12 cans in a compact frame and keeps your mini fridge looking as neat as the day you bought it.

Food storage

I love these Qinline Reusable Food Storage Bags. One pack contains 10 bags in three different sizes, which makes it a breeze to transfer leftovers from the fridge to your lunchbox.

5. Get packing…

If you have any travel plans looming on the horizon, do yourself a favor and don’t forget about using your luggage for extra storage at home! This Rockland Fashion Softside Upright Luggage Set is roomy enough to hold extra purses, shoes, or other bulky items you don’t need every day.

6. …And stacking

Having a small bedroom means making the most of your floorspace. These Pipishell Bamboo Stackable End Tables are already compact, but their stacking feature really makes them worth your while.

7. Swear off tangled cables forever

Disorganized cables might not be taking up a whole lot of space in your bedroom, but their mess can really ruin the vibe. This FABROK Cable Management Box is a stylish way to hide those unsightly tangles.

8. Think tall

Verticality is essential to bringing order back to your small bedroom. Turn your horizontal furniture on its ear with one of these pieces.

Shoe rack

Shoe clutter is my biggest interior design challenge. That’s why I love the SORCEDAS Shoe Rack, which holds seven pairs of shoes while taking up only the tiniest amount of floorspace.

Chest of drawers

I’m a big fan of chests over dressers. The Pellebant Dresser is an excellent budget pick for anyone looking to swap out their horizontal dresser for a taller model.

9. Go for a snug fit

Don’t let any space go to waste with these narrow pieces.

End table

Not only does the HMYHUM Acrylic Narrow End Table for Small Spaces occupy minimal physical space, but its transparency allows it to take up next-to-no visual space, as well.

10. Don’t let your desk overwhelm the room

Sometimes, a storage solution isn’t about the organizers and containers at all. Instead, it’s about picking pieces that give you the most utility for the least amount of floorspace — like these:

Standing desk

Perfect for anyone who works from home, the SDADI Mobile Standing Desk features a streamlined design that leaves you with plenty of usable floorspace.

Wall-mounted desk

If you’re in the market for a multipurpose desk substitute, consider the YU YUSING Wall Mounted Table. You can use this minimalist fixture as a work area, breakfast nook, or even a prep station.

Folding desk

Another space-saving solution that is more than just home office furniture, this Adjustable TV Tray Table slides under your bed, futon, or other sitting areas for an easy-breezy setup and breakdown. This option is great for a small bedroom that doubles as an office.

Lap desk

Of course, nothing beats a good old lap desk. If you really want to ditch your freestanding desk entirely, the Lap Gear Home Office Lap Desk is a great alternative.

11. Say goodbye to clothing clutter

Add a few of these laundry clutter-busters to your bedroom, and you’ll never have to worry about The Chair ever again.

Closet organizer

Who says you have to hang the clothes in your closet? Perfect for capsule-wardrobe enthusiasts, the HOMIDEC Closet Organizer swaps out your traditional, overstuffed closet for a neat cubby system.

Pants hangers

If jeans and slacks are taking up way too much of your precious closet space, you need a set of these MORALVE Pants Hangers. Each hanger holds 10 pairs of pants, but some users report being able to hang even more pairs of lightweight bottoms, such as culottes and leggings.

Hanging clothes storage

Although the Lirex Hanging Yoga Legging Storage Organizer is advertised for athleisurewear storage, there’s no reason you can’t use it to hold t-shirts, turtlenecks, socks, or scarves.

Underwear drawer organizer

If you’re anything like me, your underwear and sock drawers stay disorganized. These GOGOODA Underwear Drawer Organizers are a great way to neatly store socks, underwear, bras, and other small garments.

Vacuum bags

“Too much stuff, not enough space” is the theme of this article, which means we have to talk about Vacuum Storage Bags. These nifty creations allow you to compress your clothing, blankets, and other fabric items into the smallest possible space, leaving you with that much more room to store the rest of your belongings.

Space-saving accessory hanger

Much like the leggings organizer above, the Leccod Upgrade Tank Top Hanger works for much more than the garments it’s advertised to store. With 24 hooks for your ties, belts, scarves, and — yes — tank tops, this a must-have item for anyone looking to renovate their closet.

12. Ditch your nightstand

If you don’t really need an extra piece of furniture by your bed, swap it out for The Bedside Perch from SQUIRREL. This little powerhouse has a built-in charging station and can hold all of your small devices, remotes, accessories, and even your water bottle!

13. Cut down on entryway clutter

Maybe you’ve realized you can live without your coat rack, or maybe you’re starting to think you really need one. Either way, the DMYMAT Wall Mounted Coat Rack will solve almost any problem with entryway clutter — all while looking sleek and stylish.
