Finally...Some Organization for my Jewelry

I've been wanting/needing to organize my jewelry for a long time. I was reminded of this again last week when I was looking for something in my jewelry box and came across several things I didn't even know I had. Everything was so stuffed in there, things would fall to the bottom only to be forgotten about.

I used to have a few command hooks inside the linen closet door in my bathroom. It was a convenient way to hang a few necklaces, but quickly became disorganized when I kept hanging more and more necklaces on top of one another. They would get tangled and I still couldn't really see everything I had. 

I counted everything up and I had about 40 necklaces and just as many earrings, as well as various bracelets, watches and yes...even a toe ring. Lol! 

So, we went to The Container Store this weekend and it didn't disappoint. I could spend hours in there, and I pretty much did. 

Here's what I came home with...



I got two of those cute jewelry organizers that look like a little black dress. Oh, and I also picked up a few scoops for my kitchen canisters for $1.50.

As you can see, each "dress" has 33 pockets on one side and 17 loops for storing necklaces on the other. I like that the loops are velcro, which makes it so easy to grab something. Other ones had snaps and I didn't think I'd have the patience for that. Ha! 



They also have a swivel hook at the top, so you can easily flip it around from one side to the other without removing it from the closet rod, or wherever you hang it. 

Here's what mine looked like when I finished organizing everything...

The front side...

And the back side...

Jewelry organizers: $9.99 each at The Container Store

I still use my jewelry box for several things, but this really helped me to actually see most everything I have at a glance. 

Oh, and here's a look back at my old system. Pretty barbaric compared to the new organized one...

P.S. That's my recipe for homemade eye makeup remover on that little sticky note. Equal parts water, baby wash, and olive oil.

How do you organize your jewelry? I never leave the house without earrings and usually a necklace too. The only downside to this new storage system is that now it takes me longer to get ready in the mornings because now that everything is clearly displayed, I have a hard time deciding what jewelry to wear. Almost too many choices. Almost. ;)

  1. I love the Container Store! I haven't been to one in years though. We finally got one built close to me too so maybe I will make a trip to it soon. I love the new organizers you found. I don't wear much jewelry so it's not a big problem for me, but I know most people have a need for something like you have. If I had a lot, I think that would be a great way to store them.

  2. How cute!! My jewelry was always in a lovely box, but like you, I needed it to hang. I got myself one of those mirror front numbers that hangs on the wall from QVC. I have to say, I love it. It wasn't exactly cheap, but it more than does the job and I got a wall mirror to boot! ;)

  3. That looks great! My husband hung up big strong large size hooks for me and it holds ALOT OF NECKLACES and they dont fall. Like you, I never leave the house w/out earrings, necklaces and my rings and bracelets. LOL I store my earrings in little clear boxes, some with dividers like tackle boxes, some just loose.

  4. This is such a wonderful idea! Love the Container Store. I feel naked if I live the house without my earrings, etc... Great post, Lisa! Have a wonderful weekend.

  5. Love the container store. I have been looking for something cute for all my jewels that are just shoved in the nightstand drawer getting tangled with each other. I will have to get one of these cute little black dresses. Thanks for sharing. Love this.

  6. They are adorable! So much cuter than the Command hooks. :) Wish we had a Container Store nearby. You did great!

  7. That's a great way to store jewelry, and I used something similar for a long time. Now I have drawers with jewelry containers inside in my closet, thanks to The Man! You have some cute necklaces...I love wearing jewelry even when I'm staying home.

    Warm hugs,
    Carol
