If you love accessorizing but aren’t big on organizing, chances are your jewelry’s tangled in a massive jumble of knots. Don’t let your favorite pieces lie stagnant any longer. Organizing your jewelry can be as simple or elaborate as you want it to be, but the point is to make your accessories visible and easily accessible. Here are four jewelry storage ideas that may change the way you SEE your jewelry!
1. Make it CLEARLY VISIBLE
If you can easily see what is available to you, the odds of you actually wearing your jewelry dramatically increase. Don’t keep them tucked away in an obscure drawer or in a heap on top of your vanity. Plastic trays, glass jars, bowls, or drawer dividers are all great tools.
Here are some examples:
2. Try RECYCLING
You don’t have to spend a ton of money on jewelry armoires or fancy boxes. There tons of great ideas for up-cycling things you can find at thrift stores or maybe even in your own stash at home. Not only will it keep your jewelry neatly organized, but recycling means you’ll have a one-of-a-kind piece. Your storage will be unique and personal.

3. Mind the BUDGET
I don’t just mean fiscally. You’ve got to pay attention to your space budget, too. If you’ve got tight quarters, there are still a lot of storage options that can work for you! If you’re frugally-minded, don’t let it stop you. Think about inexpensive solutions that can either hang on a wall or door or make use of wasted space, leaving floor space and counter space clear.

4. Think about the BIG PICTURE
If you’ve got a ton of jewelry, you may have to think LARGE when it comes to storage. Large doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Plenty of simple ideas can be made to accommodate all of your accessorizing needs. So think about everything you need to store within arm’s reach: necklaces, bracelets, rings, earrings, bangles, scarves, sunglasses, brooches, pins, etc. If you want to use it regularly, you’ll need a way to store and access it.
