Whether it is by the front door, in the bedroom or in the office, the contents of most men’s pockets are destined to land in a sloppy pile on the first open surface that can be found. The keys, loose change, gum wrappers, business cards and even pieces of lint quickly accumulate leading clutter.
The valet (also known as a catch-all) not only provides a place for a man to empty his pockets, but it also helps to corral the pocket clutter and protect the surface of the dumping area. Try using a sturdy decorative bowl that you have in the house, or one of the various designs that be found online or in stores. My newly discovered favorite combines a valet with a coin bank, making it even easier to stay organized.
Regardless of the style you choose, I promise it will make your life more neat and make it easier for you to grab all your necessities next time you leave home, minus the lint.

This ultimately leads to large amounts of clutter and disorganization. Here are some tips that I shared last week with Lesley Nagy, from Better TV, on how to prevent this and help men get a bit more organized.
