Thanks to my O.C.D. tendencies and overall anal retentiveness about organization, I am not a fan of clutter. For me, everything has a place and there is a place for everything, otherwise I cannot rest (it drives my husband CRAZY). As much as I would love my home to be perfect all the time, it's simply not realistic or practical...there are many items that get used far too often to store them out of sight constantly, so I love to use trays to corral them for a beautiful, pulled-together alternative. Cooking utensils, perfume, makeup, souvenirs, liquor bottles, jewelry, trinkets, books, magazines all look more collected when displayed on a beautiful tray:
