Thrifty Jewelry Organizers

I've been stashing all my jewelry in boxes the past few years. The outcome? Tangled up and necklaces and misplaced earrings!! UGHHH the frustration! So I decided to search the web for some organizers. OMG the cheapest product I found was a earring holder, which was a piece of plastic with holes in it costing $24. I was so desperate that I ended up buying it. When it finally arrived, it was smaller than I expected and didn't even hold half my earrings.

I decided to make my own earring holder with the materials I had at home. All I used was a shoe box lid, and a pair of fishnet pantyhose that I wore once last halloween. No worries ladies, these were clean ;) All I did was cut off the legs, and slid the box lid into the pantyhose. I did two layers. The outcome...

 

This diy earring holder saved me lots of money, so I figured some one out there would like to save some money too :) Heres a quick tutorial on the second earring holder I made, this time using regular black pantyhose.


Looking for more affordable jewelry organization ideas? I've got the solution, Second hand stores!!! I went to Value Village looking for items to store my bracelets and necklaces. Check out what I found...

I believe this item is a towel holder. You know, the ones that you place your hand towels in the bathroom! I just hang my necklaces on the rings and it holds up great. I was especially excited to find this guy cause.. look!!! Only $1.99!

Then I found this one close by. I'm not even sure what this is exactly. Maybe is is meant for bracelets? Anyone know? But there were several of these at the store. Again, only $1.99


So the moral of the story is... There are always great finds at the second hand stores! lol

  23. Cool finds!! What store did you buy them at?? I've been looking especially for necklace holders because I hang them on my lamp. And when I was carefully trying to take one out, I burnt myself on the bulb and ended up yanking my necklace and breaking it in half!! =( I don't even wear it anymore. And what sucks about it is it's real and not fake or fashion jewelry. Help please! =)

  35. Quitting smoking was on my mind since long as I don’t want my son to take up this habit. With the government adopting newer measures to prevent our kids from getting attracted to smoking, I think I should also do my bit. I am taking help of this link; you can also quit smoking with it.
