My jewelry box is not quite this disorganized, but it is slowly getting there. I have been pondering the idea for quite some time on how to organize my jewelry. I have a beautiful jewelry box but it is just not large enough for all my necklaces to hang in. In addition, there is not place for earrings except for everything to lay in a little drawer, all jumbled together. Every time I want a particular pair of earrings, I have to go through every drawer to find the ones I want, which usually involves dumping each drawer on the bed to look through it. Then having to pick it up again.
I had purchased this several years ago at a local Family Dollar store for $10 and never really used it.
It hangs on the wall and opens up to this.
I also have this drawer that is a junk drawer (unlike the jewelry mess above, I claim this mess as totally mine) and the items in it need to be put somewhere else so I can free this drawer up for use. I don't think I have cleaned out this drawer in 10 years because I just never use it for anything. It is a long drawer that isn't very deep.
This morning, I had an inspiration. First, I will hang the little jewelry box up on the wall. Even though there are only a few hooks for necklaces, I am fine with that. I can hang more than one per hook. Then I'm going to clean out the drawer and get a few little trays like this....
I can get square ones for bangle bracelets and watches. Then the long one can be for my bracelets that clasp so they can lay flat.
That just leaves the dilemma of the earrings. I pondered and pondered what to do about earrings so I don't have to dig for the right pair every time I go somewhere. Inspiration struck in several forms.
Or mini muffin pans
Or even Wilton candy molds
I think I am very excited about these ideas. I'll keep you posted on how it turns out.
