An Idea for Jewelry Organization
I thought I'd share an idea that has finally solved my problem with jewelry organization. I'm not a fan of jewlery boxes, which take up space and look obnoxiously like... well, jewlery boxes! In order to keep clutter off my dresser, I decided to try using a little craft organizer in my top drawer. I simply snapped the lid off and stored it underneath the box, just in case I need it in the future.
Here's the result:
I've been using this method for about a year now, and I'm very satisfied with it. I can easily see my jewelry, and I'm ten times more likely to put it away if I have a specific place for it! I can assign each compartment with a purpose -- for instance, one compartment holds all of my pendants so that I can easily find the one I want and slip it on a chain. I try not to keep more than two chains in any compartment to reduce the risk of tangles. And those very full compartments on the right store things that I rarely wear, such as bracelets, pins, and brooches. They're still easy to access if I need them, but they don't take up a lot of space.
So if any of you need a new jewelry solution, you might want to give this a try! It's ridiculously inexpensive, and easy to personalize for your needs!
