Jewelry Organization

Organize Jewelry into Regions:

A region is an area where you put like items with like items.  For example, if you were creating a dressing region you would put your dresser, shoes, socks, dirty clothes hamper, and closet in one region so you can get dressed quickly in one area.

When organizing jewelry it’s handy to have the jewelry region by the dressing or makeup region.  It’s also handy to have a mirror in the region.

How do you declutter your jewelry?

De-junk with the following clutter tips:

Remember the acronym L.U.M.P.  If you don’t want your jewelry organizer to look like lumps and loads of junky jewelry tangled together, then answer yes or no to these 3 questions:

  • L stands for the question “Do I LOVE it?”
  • U stands for the question “Do I USE it?”
  • M stands for “Will I MISS it?”  If there are two No’s then out it goes!
  • P stands for “PASS it on.”

Answer these questions in seconds so you quickly see results in just minutes of de-cluttering.  To get motivated you could host a jewelry swap to give yourself a deadline to go through your jewelry.

How to host a Jewelry Swap:

If you are getting too much jewelry or getting tired of all your old jewelry – have a girlfriend jewelry swap.  Everyone brings what they don’t like anymore.  Then everyone goes around the circle choosing one piece at a time.  We have a jewelry swap with my family which is 11 girls and it’s a lot of fun.  Everyone shares and it’s a really cheap way to get some new jewelry.

Here’s another jewelry organization idea:

Here’s a close up of the earring organizer:
