It is a well known fact among friends and family that I am NOT a morning person at all. It takes me a good hour and at least one cup of coffee to wake up most mornings. I also like to be alone during that time so that my brain can
S L O W L Y start processing things.
I am also a visual person and I like to be able to see things laid out in front of me. Getting dressed and finding the right jewelry was getting to be a huge pain with everything jumbled together in baskets and on trays. I needed a better system.
While out thrifting earlier this week I came across this double sided hanging jewelry organizer. It is perfect for me because I can see right through the pockets, things are not getting all tangled up and it does not require a whole lots of thinking in the morning for me. ;)
I quickly got to work putting my bracelets and necklaces in the pockets totally ignoring the labels on the pockets. It felt so good to be able to see everything and I rediscovered things that I had forgotten I had. Bonus and kind of like Christmas!
I love that it is double sided. It gives me lots and lots of room to get things organized and where I can see them easily. The fact that it has bigger pockets on the bottom was one of the things that drew me to it in the first place. I have some long beaded necklaces that would not fit in the smaller pockets but fit great in the big ones.
I also repurposed a beautiful old china dish to keep some of the earrings that I wear the most out where I can see them and easily grab them. Hoops tend to be my "go to" earrings when I am in a huge hurry to get out the door.
The rest of my daily use type earring are in this jewelry box along with a few other items that would not fit in the hanging organizer. My DIL Heather makes beautiful earrings for me that match many of my outfits and I keep them in here.
I can already tell that this "new to me" system is going to make the school year so much easier to get ready for in the rushed mornings. I love having everything I need right at my fingertips!
