Inspired by Marjorie’s organization posts and my growing collection of jewelry, I decided that I needed a better way of storing my jewelry. Previously, I just stored them in random boxes, which by the way, was a terrible idea. All the necklaces would get tangled together, and it was very difficult to find anything. That probably explains why up until recently, I was never big on jewelry. Unfortunately, I don’t have a before photo, but I’ll spare you guys the eyesore. Just trust my word on this: it was pretty darn bad :/
Ever since I had my mind set on better organizing my jewelry, I wanted a jewelry armoire. It’s has plenty of storage space and the drawers & hooks allow for organizing. Overall, it’s a great way to centralize the location of all your jewelry, except, they’re darn expensive. But, tip: check out your discount department store[2. Ross, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, Home Goods are all great places to look], or even Walmart, for huge discounts. I actually found mine at Marshalls for…$25 :D I think it’s missing some drawers, but $25 was too much of a steal to pass this up
The hooks on the side are excellent for hanging longer necklaces, especially those that tangle easily. I use the drawers to store mainly smaller necklaces and also my larger earrings.
These containers were $1 for 2, so they’re very cheap. If you have any small shelves, you can also use containers like these to store your bracelets :)
I don’t think I’ll ever have enough rings[3. Most of the rings, and jewelry in general, were presents from my mom] to fill up that whole space, so you can always use it to store stud earrings :) On the other side, I store some of my mid-sized earrings in pill boxes for easy organization. Just find ones without the dates on them!
If you don’t want to splurge on an armoire, you can still store your jewelry using the above boxes and containers and placing them in a drawer or shelf. Or you can buy some jewelry organizers and stack them in your drawers or any storage area:
Finally, if you want to incorporate your jewelry into your decor, placing several key pieces onto a pretty tray or dish would make a lovely statement piece and allow for quick access. Or, you can invest in a jewelry stand, which are relatively cheap, and hang some of your pieces on it. You can find more ideas for jewelry organization on this post. Anyways, hope you all enjoyed the post! :D
This is the first time I did an organizing/home decor sort of post, so let me know if you want to see more (or less) of these types of posts c:
