Sometimes I get the irresistible urge to organize. Even from a young age, organizing and cleaning and streamlining were instinctual. In elementary school, I kept my entire box of 64 Crayola crayons strictly in order of colors and shades, and was adamant that anyone who borrowed crayons had to put them back in their correct place (or they would be forever banned from my art supply stash). I may have verged on obsessive compulsive.
While I’ve loosened up a bit since then, I still get a burst of organization energy from time to time. This week I tackled my jewelry collection, which was in terrible disarray. I had piles of tangled necklaces, earrings and bracelets, stored haphazardly in a plastic desk organizer. The task at hand was clear – I needed a new way to store my jewelry.
With a few hours, handy house items, and some resourcefulness, I had an inexpensive way to keep my jewelry organized and readily accessible. Since I’m guessing some of you may have the same problem as I did, I included instructions and photos. Happy organizing!
