Organization: The Jewelry Drawers!

This went more easily than I thought it would! Let me start by saying I have LOTS of costume jewelry. I was on a beading kick a few years ago, so I made about 30% of what you will see myself, and sold many pieces or made them for gifts. I kept some of my favorite beads.

When we moved to this house, I had my closet "done" by California Closets, and had TWO jewelry drawers put into my built-in closet dresser. Soon I needed three, and I kept moving my underwear down a drawer. Finally, I gave up and made it FOUR drawers for jewelry, but they were a mess! I bought stacking plastic divided trays at Bed, Bath and Beyond, and now drawer three and four each have four trays, and all the jewelry is sorted by color. It all fits! My underwear is safe!

Drawer 1: Rust

I'm in awe.
I though I was organised, but you are the Queen!!
My jewelery is all categorised by type too, but I don't have the drawer space like yours...next house I'm planning to!

Jo:

I hope you are as happy as your jewelry. I have looked at these pictures and smiled and smiled and smiled!

Mindy:

Palma, When I was in California the past few weeks I was showing my mom some of the Slowtrav blog posts. When she saw this post and the organization of your jewlery, she said "I LOVE HER!!! I WANT TO BE HER FRIEND"!! I reminded her that she met you in San Diego....so the next time I'm out for a visit don't be surprised if Darleen comes a knockin' on your front door!!

Un grande abbraccio!!
Mindy
