How To Get the Most Storage Out of Dresser-Top Space?

Good Questions

Q: I recently moved in with my boyfriend, which means that we now have kind of a lot of stuff in a pretty small apartment. Clothes are especially an issue, but definitely not the only one. For some reason, the top of our IKEA Malm dresser is one of the only spaces that is actually un-cluttered at the moment, so I'm trying to figure out a way to use some of it for some kind of storage.

Right now I only have a bit of jewelry on there, but my collection of rubies and sapphires is limited, so this may not be the best way to maximize space. Anyone have any suggestions for how to make the most of it?
