You may remember my confessions post about my jewelry drawer.
My necklaces and bracelets were in a variety of boxes and containers. And I couldn't easily see what was where (although I basically knew out of routine).
I've been tossing around ideas for what to do with this for a few weeks. I knew I wanted something that would divide the space and make things easily visible. But none of the regular drawer organizers were really speaking to me.
Imagine my delight last weekend when I came across these adorable little organizers at the Target Dollar Spot! They were just $1. I wasn't totally sure all my jewelry would fit in the small spots but I felt pretty confident and figured that if they didn't the $6 would be well spent as I could find another location for them.
This is what I came up with:
Don't you just LOVE the brightly colored interiors? They make me smile. Six was the perfect number. I still have a little space for a few things that need to stay separate.
The organizers are holding my everyday jewelry. The little silver heart jewelry box in the back was a gift from my best friend in high school. It houses a few sentimental pieces that I don't wear day-to-day. As do the other boxes. Do not be fooled by the little blue Tiffany bag. It is not an item from Tiffany! The bag is from Tiffany. It came with the 5-year anniversary clock my husband got from work. What's in it now is the tiara I wore for our wedding. Actual retail price - somewhere around $30.
To my great joy, all my items fit. The larger bracelets and necklaces are in the big slots. Everything else is in the smaller ones. In general, I grouped things by like color. So the silver pieces are together, those with blue, with brown... you get the idea. That's how I think about getting dressed - by color so that made sense for me. If you think by length or some other criteria you might want to organize them differently.
Isn't it pretty? Don't you just want to look at it one more time.
