1. They Make Messes Look Orderly
A pile of change, a set of keys, and a pair of sunnies strewn on an empty surface just looks random and rather messy, but corral those same items in a small tray and suddenly they look like they're exactly where they're supposed to be.  Added bonus, having a designated spot for your daily essentials makes it a breeze and less stressful when you're running out the door!

2. They Make Anything Feel Special
When added to a comely catchall, even the most mundane items, think paperclips and pushpins, are suddenly transformed into things worthy of being on display.  A good rule of thumb is the less eye-catching the item being stored, the more majorly stunning of a catchall you'll need.  Now your desk decor is Instagram worthy.
