Inside drawers and closets
* Tie taper candles, pens or pencils together with a pretty ribbon or fat, brightly colored rubber band.
* Put miscellaneous keys, matches and rubber bands in shallow baskets, small bowls, boxes or organizing trays (I like these bamboo inserts from The Container Store).
* Buy items like Q-Tips, cotton balls, tampons on sale, discard their packaging and store them in pretty and generous sized jars. I like these from IKEA because the lids come off easily or use the jars from a food (like spaghetti sauce) that you use frequently.
* Chalkboard, whiteboard or magnetic boards inside a cabinet that you open frequently can hold to do lists, dry cleaning slips, printed tickets.
