Cosmetics ContainersI have found that old cosmetics containers (that have been cleaned out) are great to store jewelry in for a weekend trip. It's also a great way to recycle!

Use ice cube trays to organize jewelry. A few trays will fit nicely into your bureau drawer, and you can use the divided compartments to keep earrings together and to separate small-chain necklaces.

My roomie bought some dresses for her grand babies at Costco. They come with this wonderful hook she was about to recycle. I scooped it up and now use it for jewelry.

Weekday pill organizers like the one pictured can be used to plan what earrings will be worn on which day of the week. Bobby pins fit also fit in this particular one, and rings as well.

I reused an old curio cabinet as a jewelry box! I simply add hooks at the top of each shelf section for necklaces and bracelets. Then I found some cute wooden boxes at various yard sales, for less than a dollar, to hold my watches, rings, etc.

I was looking for a way of keeping earrings and necklaces un-cluttered when not having an earring stand. I took two metal cooler racks (the kind you use in the kitchen) hung them on the wall with Command Hooks (one in each corner at the top) and hung my earrings on them in staggered rows.

I save all those tiny little baggies that buttons come in on new clothes and keep my earring paired up and my jewelry separated in my jewelry box. They keep chains and hooks from getting tangled up, and help keep the box neat and well organized.

Take a small extension rod that will fit snugly between two moldings on the wall. Use S hooks to hang costume jewelry over the rods.


I have 5 rods with various widths in between them to hang the different lengths, as well as bracelets.

I hang all my jewelry from hooks. Certain earrings go with the necklace. When I have the hook kind, I slip it into the chain or just use a small opened paperclip to hang them both together.

I bought two boxes in the tool section of Wal-Mart that hold screws and nails. They come in different sizes, number of drawers they have, and size of drawers.


I store all my earrings, rings, anklets, and bracelets in these.

I have found that using a piece of plastic canvas to store earrings keeps them organized, together, and visible. I cut a doorknob hanger shape into the plastic canvas and hang my earrings on the inside of the bedroom door.

If you're a sales rep. for Avon, or some other jewelry company. The items you get for show or for very cheaply yourself. Keep all the boxes, even if you wear some of the items.


Keep them in their original boxes. This will keep them from getting scratched up in your jewelry box or where ever.

I would like to organize my jewelry in a drawer of my dresser. Are there any ideas on how to do that in do-it-yourself way? I do not want to buy the jewelry box, as I like to have everything out of the way.

I have lots of little decorative boxes - & I segregate the jewlery according to type - one box for earrings, one for bracelets, one for pins - and then, of course - one that has everyday stuff I wear all the time....

If you have an entire drawer to use, I would try those drawer organizers they have out for socks and underwear. You should be able to get them at Bed, Bath and Beyond.


I don't think they are too expensive especially if you just need one.

I need help organizing my jewelry. Yes, I am an earring addict. Now I have three dresser drawers consumed by my jewelry and I need the space in my dresser; we have a really small house and space is so limited.

I can't find jewelry boxes or jewelry organizers, even the kind that hang on the wall, to hold my stuff. I also have a lot of necklaces. Any jewelry box I've ever seen has a lot of space for rings, but I hardly have any rings. They don't even have half the space I need for earrings and necklaces and bracelets.

Does anyone have any suggestions, please. I've tried tackle boxes, but maybe I haven't found the right brand yet. I'm also aware that my bracelets collection is being enlarged. Any good ideas out there? Thank you.
