There is an entire store based in this concept: The Container Store! Even a junk drawer can look better if you use simple drawer organizers to divide the stuff inside. Containing items makes them easier to find, easier to access and easier to label. Remember to choose a container that works for your space, is easy to access and that you like. Don’t just buy a container because it is on sale or looks pretty. It needs to function in your space for the purpose you have in mind. Remember to measure your space and the items you need to store inside before you go to the store. And remember to leave room in the container for more items.
