Looking for another project? You might as well use this time at home to organize your jewelry so you'll never have to untangle a necklace chain ever again. Let's get started...

Step 1: Group by category (ex: Necklaces, Bracelets, Earrings, Rings) Depending on the item, it can also help to sub-categorize, such as separating earrings that dangle from the studs.

Step 2: Purge and donate what you no longer wear, and set aside what is broken or missing a match. If something looks like it needs to be polished, clean it before you store it. (P.S. These polish wipes are a game-changer!)

Step 3: Decide where and how your jewelry should be stored. This will vary from person to person and depends entirely on usable space and the number of items you own.

Whether it's in a drawer or on a countertop, here are some options for storing your newly-edited jewelry collection to keep it accessible and protected for years to come:

In a Drawer:

Place velvet-lined compartment trays in a drawer to keep your items separated and protected. They come in a variety of sizes and styles to fit your exact needs.

Acrylic or plastic inserts will also work, but only for your less delicate items, such as costume jewelry.

On a Countertop:

If you're storing your jewelry on the countertop, you'll want to take advantage of vertical space with stackable or hanging organizers.

Personally, we love using Stackers. They look like simple leather cases on the outside, but the interior is lined with velvet compartments to keep things safe. There are *so* many options to choose from, based on your needs and color preference. To us, Stackers feel like building your own jewelry box—and we love it!

Clear acrylic organizers are an option for anyone looking to create a jewelry display in their closet.

Lastly, no matter how you decide to store your jewelry, it helps to designate a small tray to keep track of the pieces you wear and remove on a daily basis. We recommend placing it on your bedside table, near the bathroom sink, or in your closet.

Tip 1: Stock Up on Healthy Staples

If you want to start eating healthier, you obviously need to stock your fridge with healthy food. It helps to create a list of core staples to have on hand at all times. This takes the guesswork out of grocery shopping, and you’ll feel more prepared during meal and snack time. 

Tip 2: Edit, Edit, Edit

When it comes to actually organizing your fridge, don’t skip the editing process. Even if you don’t feel like it, start by removing every single item from your fridge until it’s completely empty. We suggest keeping a trash bag nearby and tossing anything expired as you go. And since your fridge shelves are probably due for a deep clean, here’s your chance to actually get in there and wipe off that weird sticky layer! 

Tip 3: Create Zones

Every category should live in a designated zone (location) and preferably, within a contained and visible home (clear product). This allows everything to be accessible, accounted for, and aesthetically pleasing...while also maximizing shelf space.

Tip 4: Label It

Labeling isn’t just the finishing touch, it’s actually the secret sauce of the system. Labels are really just straightforward directions for where items go. They concretely identify the contents that live in each container. It not only helps *you* maintain the system, but it holds your kids, your partner, and anyone else using the space, too. 

*Reminder: Think broad, not specific when labeling your categories. It should be a simple road map that’s flexible enough for the occasional outlier. 

Tip 5: Freeze It

Your freezer is valuable real estate in your fridge set up, so clear out those old popsicles and spilled frozen peas to make room for favorites your family will actually eat. We're looking at you last minute meals.

We love using our Freezer Bins to contain the chaos amongst the frozen pizzas and kids snacks. Organizing this space will take the dread out of opening this often-forgotten area, we promise!
