This is actually my third one. There was a red and black, a pretty orange one, and now I’ve settled into turquoise. This round, I decided to add more sections for long necklaces and some hooks at the bottom for bracelets. It’s been awesome! In every place I’ve lived, I just hang it behind my bedroom door. A walk in closet is another great place to hang it. I’d definitely avoid storing the precious accessories in the bathroom though – – Moisture can wreak havoc!
Sorting the jewels can also be fun. I sorted by color and length, and once again made two extra piles: GOODWILL and CONSIGN.

In the end, I think I did pretty good! I’ve got a few hooks left for new purchases and KNOW WHAT I HAVE, which is half the battle.
I also figured out something new to do with bracelets. Bracelets have been my OBSESSION for the past few months… and the hooks I have on this display don’t really cut it.
I found ANOTHER great idea out on Pinterest. (PS… If you haven’t tried Pinterest, WHY NOT??) You can find TONS of ideas and recipes like this great solution to store your bracelets! I added a link to NTTC yesterday so that you can follow me on Pinterest, if you’re so inclined. 🙂
If you can’t tell by the picture, that’s a papertowel holder. Yep, Just a cheapy one purchased from Target for $3.49, and now my bracelets are not taking over my bedroom!
I’ll close out today’s post with showing another problem area that I’ve got to find a solution for. Scarves. The problem is that I have too many. Even after going through them, I still have too many.
I store them on a double hook system behind my closet, so they’re contained… but they always look messy. Maybe I’ll head off to Pinterest to see what I can find for this!
Stay tuned… and happy organizing! PS… Apparently, I’m not the only one who was organizing accessories this weekend. If you click here, you can see what Julie at Peanut Butter Fingers was up to!
