Does your home office look more like a kindergarten classroom with paper, pens, markers and more strewn around? To get from the kindergarten-like chaos to the Martha Stewart-like organization, you need to have a place to stash all your necessary supplies. Sure you could go into that fancy organization store that has containers of all shapes, sizes and colors. They even have containers you didn’t know you needed. But it’s easy to spend a small fortune in one of those places. Instead, make your own storage containers to clear up your clutter and pay little to nothing, depending on what you have in hand.

The loose notes, the paper, pens, rubber bands, etc. Once you have a place to put all that stuff, you’ll notice your work area looking cleaner and easier to use.
