I had a good friend who recently asked me what the point of clearing out jewelry in her closet as it didn’t take up much space – we had a good laugh over it. I totally get it, which is why I’ve neglected clearing out my own jewelry until recently. It’s not that it really takes up much space, but it takes up visual space and feels like it takes me longer to see what I want to see.
It’s like when you have a closet that’s so full of good clothes and some of the stuff you don’t like – it just makes you believe you don’t have anything to wear because you’re so frustrated seeing stuff you don’t love.
Introducing – this wall or door mount jewelry organizer! You can find different finishes to fit your decor – it holds 36 necklaces, 48 earrings 96 rings and more – bracelets, earrings, there are cubbies for every accessory you love.
Here are three tips to help you clear your accessories –
1 / Take it all out
Yes, just like your closet, they say take everything out. It’ll be much easier to really see what you’ll want to go back in because you have to look at every piece and hold it. You can apply the Marie Kondo method, in fact, I strongly encourage it.
2 / Look at the quality
Tarnished (like most fashion jewelry) means your piece is worn down! It’s time to acknowledge that your once gold plated necklace has gotten it’s love and use. It doesn’t even look good worn off anyway – trust me, once it turns from gold to an uneven silver tone, it’s time to let it go – and thank it for it’s service (yes Kondo!) and let it goooooo.
3 / It’s not your style
It’s crazy to realize even jewelry goes out of style – but it does. Your style may have even changed as well, so look at each piece and determine if you get excited to wear it – does it compliment your style, outfits, have you worn it lately, and is it comfortable? I believe in keeping the fancy pieces even if you wear it once a year, if you still love it, that’s fine!
Once you put each item back in your handy jewelry organizer, organize them by type – earrings: studs, fancy, hoops, dangly. And necklaces: sort by long to shorter and chokers. I just love that chokers are back.
Rings as well – daily rings, cocktail, and so on.
Donate gently used jewelry to an organization that is helps women like Dress for Success – there are also organizations that help homeless women with job placement, with enough research you can probably find the right organization to donate your jewelry to.
Now you have a pretty, organized spot (this jewelry organizer) to hang your treasured accessories – and getting ready is even easier! Cheers to being organized and keeping the things you truly love.
