Following is the saga of getting all my jewelry - and the jumbled, annoying heap of boxes and bags it had become - into tip-top shape and ready for my new, little black dress!
I don't have a jewelry box, so the sweater organizer was the next best place. Everything was together... but everything was a mess. Any time I got any new jewelry, I just piled it on top of the other stuff! So, it looked like THIS!. :(
(And quite an embarrassment for a neat freak!) There was stuff in there that I hadn't seen in years... it was just too buried underneath all the other jewelry boxes!
I sorted through everything and tried to put items in places where they would be convenient and neat and where they would make sense to me... with "popular" earrings and necklaces near the top and less-often-used or larger items near the bottom.
(BTW: I did keep the other organizer with some other jewelry items in it; I just placed the organizer behind my clothes instead of on the door!)
I only had a few boxes and random items left over from the massive clean-up, and those went back into the sweater organizer. And one important item I kept here, mostly for convenience, is my watch. You can see it there on the bottom left. I wear it every day, and it was just easier to have it here! I can slip it on while I gaze at my lovely, little black dress of bobbles and bangles! ;)
Now, THAT's neat!
