We love that organizing isn't a "one size fits all" mantra. The important thing is to have your own system and use what works for you. Take for example, our friend Loop's landing zone...
He calls it his manlandingzone (we kind of love it). He's taken a vintage champagne cooler (made out of black glass) and placed it in his entryway. Loop puts his wallet, keys, change, headphones, pens, etc. in the vintage container.
It's all right next to his iPhone charger so its all in one spot (very guy-friendly).
