One organizing dilemma that a lot of people seem to ask me about is what to do with their jewelry. Well, you could have California Closets come in and build fabulous jewelry drawers like this into your closet, but that will cost an arm and a leg. Read on for some easy and budget friendly jewelry organizing options that will help you get your jewelry organized in no time.
First of all, before you start organizing or buying products, think about how you like to keep your jewelry. Do you want to see it all right there in front of you each day, or do you want it on top of a dresser hidden away in a pretty box. I’ll give you ideas for both options, but don’t forget about the most important part…. DECLUTTER your jewelry before you start the organizing process. If you haven’t worn it in a year (or possibly two), DONATE. If it is a higher quality and in great shape, you can CONSIGN it. You can also give your old costume jewelry to a little girl who loves to place dress up!
If you are the type that likes your jewelry neatly put away in a drawer or hidden away somewhere, there are great inserts that you can purchase and make your own jewelry drawer. Check out liners like this at organize.com
If you have the room and the money, you could even purchase your own jewelry cabinet like this awesome one from Pottery Barn or a less expensive but equally cool piece like the Hayworth Jewelry Armoire from Pier One. Also stacksandstacks.com has over 100 pretty jewelry boxes to choose from and is a great site for any organizing products in general.
If you are like me and like to have your jewelry out in the open where you can see it, this is my new organizing obsession that a friend told me about. You mount it on the wall and It comes in three different colors. I am definitely going to purchase one of these for my own use, and it will only cost you about $160! By the way, if you have more jewelry than what will fit on this sucker, you have too much!!! PURGE, PURGE, PURGE!!!!!
You can also purchase over the door jewelry organizers like this which a great use of closet space!
Of course there are also crafty ways to organize your jewelry such as a do-it-yourself cute wall box or using cute vintage trays or dishes to store your jewelry. We have been over this before, I am not crafty, so you will definitely not see this in my home….it sure is cute though!!!!
