Staying organized while you’re busy can be a herculean task. I just confronted my desk drawer a few weeks ago. Among my memoirs, I found 67 cents, an empty Junior Mints box and a ticket stub for 2012’s big hit, The Hunger Games.
Creating a DIY organization station doesn’t have to break the bank or monopolize your time. The right system keeps your command central neat and stress-free. And as with anything, weekly touch-ups help your space stay manageable and free of seven-year-old ticket stubs. Here are our favorite picks for your DIY organization station to start your journey.
Pegboards are wonderful for one word: versatility. They hold baskets, clipboards, folder cubbies and more. Plus, the pre-made holes provide a grid line to keep things straight and even.

Gift Wrapping Station
Maybe you'd keep this in your office, maybe you'd keep it in the garage. Either way, a centralized station for wrapping paper, scissors and ribbons will make gift wrapping 100% more enjoyable. Plus, it has wheels.

Wouldn't it be nice to have one of these for humans? When your family has multiple phones to keep track of, a charging station is the key to success. And it hides all those tangled cords!
