Earring Organization for less than $5!!!

Does your earring collection look like this?!  Sometimes, after a while of looking at this pile or trying to root through it to find a pair of studs, I hear myself saying, “enough already!”  This pile usually accumulates after traveling where I pick out 10 more pairs of earrings than I actually need – “just in case I change my mind” and dump them out on Monday morning looking for something that was in my travel roll.

Note:  I love jewelry!  But I also love inexpensive jewelry that I can wear daily and not worry about it getting lost, broken, tarnished, etc.  I do have some nicer pieces that live in my jewelry box but for the most part I want to see what jewelry I have and wear it on a daily basis.  I should point out that I don’t have kids, I think this could be a nightmare if you have little ones or bigger ones that like to wear your jewelry! 🙂

Now – On to my nifty organization idea with the help of my assistant Ellie!! A ribbon organizer.  I know this picture isn’t the best but I made it long enough that it’s hard to take a picture of!  (See below for more detailed images.)  I got this idea after playing around online pp (pre-pinterest!) and saw people selling similar concepts with ribbon tied to hangers, or screens, or using ribbons to organize hair bows so I thought why not use that idea for my earrings?!

I bought a spool of pink satin ribbon that is 1″ wide.  I just chose a soft color that wouldn’t compete with the jewelry and well I have a weakness for pink!

I organized all of my earrings and started placing them down the ribbon.  My collection has grown since then but you get the idea! 🙂

It works quite well and I’ve been using this for a few years and couldn’t be happier!  What do you use to organize your jewelry?  I’d love to hear how others tackle this issue!

Thank you for stopping by Gracious Luck!
