I can't tell you how many pairs of earrings I have lost. Or even worse, how many single earrings I have whose partner has gone missing, who just sit there and remind me of their cuteness and my spacey-ness! I was in desperate need for Earring Organization! Little did I know that a simple egg carton would be the answer.
I had this egg carton sitting around, and a few months ago when I cleaned out my dresser drawers, I had an extra empty drawer. A light bulb went off, in went the egg carton, and out whet my tendency to lose earrings. I am happy to report that I have not lost one since!
I really like keeping my jewelry in a drawer. There is something about having them tucked down deep, that keeps them easy to organize and see what I want to wear that day. I keep my bracelets on a silver platter to the left of my earrings, but if my earring collection ever grew, I could easily another egg carton. cut to size to fit, instead. These would also work great for rings.
I'm not sure why this method of organizing my earrings works so much better than other methods I have tried, but it is easy, it is a great way to reuse those egg cartons, and it works for me!
Now to find a clever way to organize my necklaces. Got any ideas for me?
