opinions on jewelry organizers

lots2doFebruary 25, 2006

Hi,

I am getting a new night stand and am thinking of ordering those plastic jewelry trays that can organize your jewelry. They are a little pricey but I really need to store these items in a more efficient way. I already have a wooden hanging rack for earrings. Anyone of you have these? I'd like pros and cons,please, before I take the plunge!

PS and it looks like they can stack.

Jamie from Montana bought those; I think she was pretty pleased with them. Maybe she'll chime in.

I don't have room in my nightstand; I've found that one of those hanging bags w/ the teeny plastic pockets works well for me. Or, well enough anyway, considered what has already reserved all the space in the nightstand.

Good luck!

Don't forget to check the office supply stores. They have lots of in-drawer comparmentalized type things. Several I've seen will slide several layers with small box areas.

I got this idea from someone else - maybe someone here - but I use ice cube trays. They work great, stack, and are cheap.

Check out the acrylic jewelry organizers there -- there are some that are lined too! And on sale too!

Yes -- for less expensive ideas for storage -- check out shops like Big Lots, Target etc. for plastic drawers/storage.

Also check out ideas like using a fisherman's storage or tackle box.

Or check shops like Home Depot for storage chests that are used for organizing the garage (nails, nuts, bolts etc.)

I got a jewlery armoire at a garage sale for my dd for $10 - she uses it for hair clips, scrunchies, etc. She also has quite a lot of jewelry for a six year old! It might cost less to buy an armoire than to buy individual organizers.

Postum,

I am so jealous that a 6 year old has an armoire and I don't! LOL I'm definitely going to tell everyone I know to watch for one at a garage sale this summer.

I have a nice jewelry box but most of my wear often jewelry I prefer to hang on the wall. I got some cute little boards with four silver pegs and hang all my long necklaces and bracelets from them. If it is not on the wall I seldom remember to wear it. Other seasonal jewelry is in one of those hanging pocket organizers in the closet.
