Normally, we’re against counter clutter here at Real Simple, but here’s a case where keeping something on display all the time can actually help you. If you have enough space, try storing frequently used items like cotton swabs and cotton balls on your counter (in see-through containers). Not only will they be easy to reach for each morning, but you’ll also be able to see when supplies are running low and they need to be added to your shopping list. No more removing nail polish with a wadded up piece of tissue.
