Power cords, cell phone chargers, and other gadget accessories can be stored in a tray with partitions. You may designate a space for each item—since it’s out in the open, identification should be a breeze. Place your tray near a power supply to make charging easier.

If you’ve lost the original case of your spare spectacles or sunglasses, protect them from scratches by storing them in a cutlery tray. It can double as decor on your vanity table, too.

Disposable Plastic Containers


If reused often, these containers may leak harmful chemicals into your food. Give them a second chance by using them to organize your craft materials. The container itself is translucent, which makes it easy to see what’s inside—and it’s stackable, too.

Old Grocery Baskets


Have a couple of old grocery baskets near your front entrance or in every area in your home and you’ll hardly have a misplaced item again. Teach each member of your family to dump every item they see lying around the house, then take turns returning the items to their proper storage.
