    I try to keep it simple, for function and cost, and therefore do the following.

    Most of my stuff I take to office is always in my bag. I place bag in room and maybe then put the few things that I have on my person in the bag as well (train ticket, access pass etc.). I keep my keys and mobile on the table.
    If I need my work laptop or vpn key then when finished it goes back in my bag by default.

    This way in the morning I have everything in my bag, barring my keys and mobile which are on the table.

    My stuff normally just goes up on my chest of drawers which normally isn't this neat.

    I find the easiest thing is to sleep in my clothes. That way, I don't have to have anything to empty my stuff into.

    I had my eye on a metal file drawer cabinet at work that had about 20 shallow drawers & wouldve been perfect for knives, lights & all manner of EDC accoutrements, BUT, even though my bosses said i could have it (as it was being thrown out) someone else took it with some scrap metal to the scrap yard & now its probably been crushed - Im gutted! What a waste!

    I know!
    Im so angry & disapointed, it didnt even weigh very much, so theyd have got next-to-nothing for it as scrap.

    Its my own fault for not putting a label on it saying "Save for Stu" (I usually do!!)

    I use a wooden box, I found in a thrift store for £5, to store smaller items, although that Maxped travel tray keeps winking at me with come hither eyes.

    Upside-down baseball hat. This is with me when I travel, too. Occasionally when traveling I'll just dump the pockets into my backpack or messenger bag. This ensures that my things are always with me, if not on my immediate person.
