There are so many things in my home that need to be done! My list of things to do feels a mile long. Is anyone reading this right now that feels my pain? Seriously, I could go on for years! I work full time, and am busy in the evening with three active children, but I try to squeeze as much into a weekend as I can. I recently told my husband that a great gift to me would be for me to have the entire house completely to myself for an entire weekend so that I could just clean, organize or work on projects. And that would just make a tiny dent in my to do list!
I love to see how other people organize things, so today I am going to show you how I organized some of my jewelry. It seems whenever I do little posts like this they are pretty popular, which surprises me every time! Back in April, I revealed Miss 17 Year Old’s painted vanity, and how we organized her vanity drawer. I have also shown you some of the drawers in my own bathroom, and my son’s bathroom.
When it comes to jewelry, I have a little addiction. And I have A LOT of it! I keep it in several different places in my bedroom and bathroom. Recently, I repurposed a bamboo tray that I purchased at Goodwill to house some of my earrings. I have a place for my “real” stuff, two different places for necklaces, a place for earrings and bracelets, and another place for my things that are not real, but that need to be protected a little more. Things that I paid a little more money for, or that would not fit anyplace else. I had all of this stuff in a big box in my linen closet, and it was not, I repeat was not working out! There was not enough light in there for me to see my stuff in the mornings, or any time, and I found that I was not wearing this stuff very often because it was not easy access. Something had to change!
Back in April, I won a Staples gift card worth $100, and one of the things I purchased was something I thought I could use to organize my jewelry a little better. You can check out the post about what I purchased with that gift card here. Here is a picture of the organizer I purchased with this jewelry in mind.
