Conquer clutter by making a message center designed to hold lists, bills, keys, pencils, and odds and ends. A purchased cork bulletin board forms the door to a shallow box; the size of the bulletin board determines the size of the unit. We used a 13¼- by 19¼-inch pine-framed board that cost about $8. A frame of 1-by-2s and a short length of dowel organize the interior. There's even space for eye hooks to hold keys.
