As lovers of beautiful things (kitchen knickknacks, jewelry baubles, craft supplies… need we go on?), clutter inevitably makes its way into our homes. Hey, it’s only natural! Luckily, we’ve got an organization hack that will banish all the chaos *and* look cute while doing so. Tiered trays can add order to any surface and make better use of all that under-appreciated vertical space. Plop one on your coffee bar or your craft command center to keep your beautiful things neat and tidy.
