We're fans of products like the Grid-It for holding your cables, gadgets, and other knick-knacks. Reddit user MinimumEffort put together his own take on the Grid-it approach that fits right in your pocket.
We've shown you how to make your own grid-style organizer, but this (literally) little project is perfect for the essentials: your earbuds, your key, your iPod nano. All you need is an old hardback book, a bit of elastic, some duct tape, and a stapler. You can make it as small or as big as you want, too -- MinimumEffort even made a really tiny one for the absolute bare essentials. Check out the video above to see the process in action.
