Though we consistently encourage decluttering stuff from your life — get rid of the things you don't need that always seem to stack up around you — facing reality means coming to terms with the fact that sometimes there are just little items that need corralling. Instead of going out to buy pricey baskets and boxes, why not craft yourself a functional catch-all today?
