A little organization
In my quest to get a bit more organized this year, I knew what project I had to tackle first - my long necklaces. This has been a big frustration of mine for a while - how do you store them? I have a nice little clear plastic box that holds all of my short ones, but when the long necklace trend came around, I was in trouble. For a while, I would drape them over the top of the short necklace holder...but that was messy and hard to get to the ones on the bottom. Then I tried hanging them on the dresser knobs...but then you couldn't really open the drawers. I had high hopes of getting a pretty frame and hanging them in there...and that just never happened. So onto the bathroom door handle they went. And stayed for a few months...
Until one day a couple of weeks ago. We were wandering through the Container Store looking for a few other things, and I saw this great hook piece. It's not pretty or stylish, but it definitely functional! By that afternoon, it was hanging on the wall in my bathroom and I had all of my long and clunky pieces hanging on it!
I love having them all organized now. I feel that I've already worn them more than I had before, simply because I can see what I have! Such a simple fix but for some reason, took me forever to do.
