Laura Gaskill added this to 10 Simple Tricks to Keep Your Surfaces Free From Clutter24 November 2015

Avoid clutter catch-alls A tray or basket on the coffee table or worktop to hold clutter might seem like a smart idea – until it’s full and overflowing onto the surface around it. Remember that clutter attracts more clutter, so when a group of random little items (hair ties, loose change, buttons, pens) ends up in one spot, you’re far more likely to add other (larger) random items, such as a stack of post, to it. A better way to approach this is to create a spot for each type of item – for instance, a jar for coins, a mug for pens, a hook for keys, a tray for post and a drawer organiser with little slots for small items like hair ties and stamps. It then becomes easy and satisfying to drop things into their individual containers.

Avoid clutter catchalls. A tray or basket on the coffee table or counter to hold clutter might seem like a smart idea — until it’s full and overflowing onto the surface around it. Remember that clutter attracts more clutter, so when a group of random little items (hair ties, loose change, buttons, pens) ends up in one spot, you’re far more likely to add other (larger) random items (stack of mail, shopping bag, pile of dry cleaning) to it. A better practice is to create a spot for each type of item — for instance, a jar for coins, a cup for pens, a hook for keys, a tray for mail, and a drawer organizer with little slots for small items like hair ties and stamps. It then becomes easy and satisfying to drop things into their individual containers.
