2. COR­RAL ODDS & ENDS

Not again! You reach for one pom-pom only to have the bag top­ple onto the car­pet. A bet­ter way: Con­tain small sup­plies in plas­tic cups.

Each 16 oz. cup keeps tiny ac­ces­sories at the ready.

3. STOW RIB­BON LIKE THIS

Gor­geous rib­bon is a must for em­bel­lish­ing pack­ages and paper projects, but those spools seem to have a mind of their own. To the res­cue: a dis­penser that lets reels un­furl sans tan­gles. OUR PICK: Rib­bon Dis­penser, $13, con­tain­er­store.com

4. STORE MORE HERE

A ta­ble-side pouch keeps sta­tionery at your fin­ger­tips. To make: Fold a dish towel in half, then stitch the sides shut to form a pocket. Ad­here it to the side of the desk with sticky-back fas­ten­ers.

OUR PICK: Vel­cro Sticky Back Squares, $5 for 12, sta­ples.com
