Trays are a great tool for organizing: they keep items together (think remotes on an ottoman) and make it easier to retrieve things from a deep cabinet or move items off the kitchen counter.

I use trays all over, and find they are especially useful near the door for holding the essential items that get dropped every day: keys, phone, wallet, glasses. Now this chic tray from Ballard Designs makes it even easier to see what goes where.
