#2. Use Marie Kondo's criteria of asking yourself if a piece "sparks joy" when you wear it. If not, out it goes.
3. Avoid using that beautiful old jewelry box (we've all got 'em).
These are from TJ Maxx. I like that they stack.
6. Hang necklaces.
Now you can see them all and quickly choose the color and style you want.
And no more tangles!
I just used four inexpensive hanger bars from Walmart and stacked them down the wall inside my closet.
If you feel like being more creative, there are tons of DIY ideas on the lifestyle blogs and Pinterest.
#7 Hang a mirror near your necklaces.
Now you can quickly try one on, or switch it out if it doesn't work.
I loved this mirror the minute I saw it at Marshall's a few years ago.
#8. Try some fun & funky ways to display your earrings.
Same reason . . . if you see them, you're more likely to wear them.
I was inspired by this idea - using a grater to hold earrings. Since I was running out of shelf space, I modified the project so that I could hang my earrings on the wall (again near a mirror).

It was very simple . . . an inexpensive grater from Marshall's, a can of spray primer, and a can of spray paint. I roughed up the metal grater a bit with sand paper before spraying it.
I found these electrical nails (or whatever they're called) in a jar in the garage. They worked perfectly as "spacers" too, keeping the grater away from the wall just enough to hang the earrings.
#9. Think outside the box!
Some of the best storage ideas are probably already in your house, or garage, or cellar, or shed. Look at old things in new ways. Turn them upside down and sideways and look again. If you can help it, you don't need to bring more "things" into your home just to store what you already have.
