Take it from someone who spent four years in the world’s smallest college dorm rooms and graduated to an NYC apartment: getting organized is difficult. The options aren’t always so glamorous, and more often than not you end up giving in to the very spacious and convenient plastic bins they have at The Container Store.
One thing I’ve had the most trouble organizing is my jewelry. When I lived at home, I had a big fancy jewelry box, but it was too clunky to bring with me, and it never quite fit in with the aesthetic of my room. But, as anyone who’s moved a lot or has a ton of jewelry knows, if you don’t keep it organized, you’ll end up with a ball of knotted necklaces and a handful of earrings missing their matches or backs. I have good news, though: you can tailor your organizers to fit your room, and they can be as pretty as the jewelry you put in them.
