Organising and storing my jewellery...and when it doesn't quite work

I don't have a lot of jewellery. My thing is watches!

So I really just use a couple of hooks on the inside of my wardrobe door. The problem happens when I just keep throwing necklaces onto the hooks and eventually, it drives me crazy.

Like this - now I know it doesn't look that bad but that's because a hook fell off and I put those necklaces on some of the other hooks.

What did I do? I

  • removed everything from the door
  • decluttered stuff I never wear
  • separated them into categories - earrings, pink and white set (only pink stuff I have), work necklaces, bracelets and weekend necklaces
  • decided where to put new hooks (somewhat limited by the shelves when you close the door)
  • hung everything up again, this time in an organised fashion


P.S. So they're not the prettiest pictures in the world but they are organised - just keeping it real :)

We need REAL! Thanks for sharing. I've got to help my daughter get her necklaces organized. Right now they're all over the place.
