Over the years I have become a collector of many things. Makeup. Jewelry. Clothes. Some men may call it a problem or even hoarding, but most women I know will defend their “collection” until the day they die.
“I use/wear everything in my closet!”
“I read in InStyle and they sait its totally coming back!”
“I’ll be able to pass it down to my grandchildren!”
“I don’t gain weight in my feet, so I’ll be able to wear these shoes forever!”
Sound familiar? Don’t feel bad! I always say the only time it becomes a problem is when you can no longer keep it organized, which is why I’ve developed a system for practically everything in my house! (Did you check out my post about organizing your makeup?) So, today I’m going to show you what I use to store my
massive amounts of jewelry…
I keep one of these 12-Drawer Storage Chests in my closet and store a lot of my jewelry in it. You can probably find something thats prettier, but my goal was cheap and functional especially since no one ever sees it. Each drawer is labeled “Silver Necklaces”, “Gold Necklaces”, “Rings”, etc..
For my necklaces I put each one in a small plastic baggy so that they don’t get tangled and when I travel I can just throw them into a bag and go. For my earrings I cut the tops off of tackle boxes to keep them separate.
Do you have any creative ways to store your jewelry? Let me know in the comments!
