Ideas for the Left-Brainer
Varied in shape, keepsakes can be a headache for the neatnik. Think in terms of matched containers (your usual preference) in different sizes for the just-right fit you crave—one for letters, one for theater programs, for example. Inexpensive divided boxes with depth let you sort ephemera (matchbooks, seashells) and stack it all nicely in a drawer.
Where to buy: Medina boxes by Tozai Home, small, $82, and large, $98: tozaihome.com for information. Birch and unfinished-wood divided boxes, unfortunately, are no longer available.
