Whenever I'm making a card or any project, I make sure that I have this "put it back" bin within my reach. I put all the materials that I used on that certain project and put them all back in one go after I'm done. These can be my glue, pop dots, dies, ink pads etc. In that way, my table will not be too cluttered and I will not consume too much time putting them back in their places while my project is still ongoing. I used a white rectangular bin (not the basket type as small things might slip/fall through the holes). Hope this helps!
