HACK: How To Store Jewelry Using A Cheese Grater, Ice Cube Tray And Hardware Nails

My sister is beyond obsessed with jewelry. She can open her own boutique with the amount she has collected over the years, so she’s the inspiration behind this hack. Storing jewelry is a hassle because it’s oddly shaped and tangles very easily. Jewelry storage items can be expensive and take up a lot of space. My sister uses basic household items to store some of her jewelry inside drawers, and she even came up with an easy (and cheap) solution for hanging necklaces on a wall. Check it out below.

Cheese Grater

Cheese grater: Use a cheese grater to organize all of your earrings! Instead of a big pile of mix-matched earrings, they will be all be organized accordingly and easy to grab on-the-go.



Nails And Wood: Make your own necklace holder using a piece of wood and hardware nails! You can even paint the piece of wood to match your room decor or keep it plain. Place the nails in a straight line or stagger them, the choice is all yours.

Ice Cube Tray

Ice Cube Tray: Go stock up on ice cube trays from the dollar store and stack them on top of each other in drawers. It’s the easiest (and cheapest) way to store jewelry out of sight. These are perfect for storing smaller pieces, like rings, earrings, dainty necklaces, etc.
