Containers are an important part of organizing as they allow you to separate your belongings so that things may be found quickly. When choosing containers, look for the clear ones that let you see at a glance what's inside. You may not be able to identify each and every object inside with just a glance but you'll at least have an idea if you're on the right track when you pull the container off the shelf.
