Creative Ways to Store Your Favorite Accessories

We hear a lot about clothing storage; what needs to be hung up, what needs to be folded, what kind of hangers to use, etc. Most of us have a pretty good handle on where we store our clothes.  But what about accessories?  Necklaces of every length, scarves, bracelets & rings that are haphazardly taken off and set down…the list goes on and on. We put together some great tips on storing all of your favorite accessories.

Necklaces

Necklace storage can be a real pain in the neck, pun intended.  Sure, you love that cute necklace tree, but there’s no way your super long necklaces will fit without dragging on the counter, and your chunky statement necklaces keep sliding off the pegs.   Instead of taking up more space on your vanity with a jewelry box or tree, why not hang them?  Using vertical space frees up more surface area on your counter top, and also allows you to really see all of your necklaces. Plus, it keeps them from getting tangled together.   And we all know there is nothing fun about getting ready in the morning, only to find that your favorite necklace is all tangled up!

Earrings

Earrings seem to end up everywhere, and finding a place to call their own can be tricky. You might have a jewelry box, but they all just end up mixed up together, and leave you hunting for a matched pair.  Save yourself the treasure hunt and try one of these great storage ideas!  If you loved the idea of using vertical space, you can attach a piece of window screen to a picture frame, and hang it on the wall.  You can DIY it, or purchase them from a crafty individual on Etsy.

If having your earrings on a counter or in a drawer is more your speed, you can skip the small, pricey earring trays (they never have enough compartments!) and grab some $1 store ice trays. You can spray paint them to match your room colors, or leave them plain and put them in a drawer.

Scarves

Storing scarves can also be a bit cumbersome. Maybe you started out with a small collection on the back of your closet door, but now they fall off every time you open the closet. Here are some great ways to store them that will work no matter how many you own.

If you have the wall space, fuse fashion with function and hang them with clothespins. You can see and access them easily, and they’ll brighten up your room!

If you’d rather keep them in the closet, take some plastic circular shower curtain rings and attach them to a hanger.   Works like a charm for Infinity Scarves!   Simply thread a traditional scarf through a closed ring, or open the ring to place your Infinity Scarf inside.  If you need more scarf space, you can always just start another hanger.  This tip also works really well for storing camisoles, tank tops, and belts too!  Especially handy for modern belts that don’t have the traditional buckle to attach to a standard belt hanger.

Rings

Raise your hand if you’ve ever had a ring mishap; forgotten it in the bathroom, dropped it down a kitchen drain, knocked it off a nightstand, etc. *Raises hand* Rings get taken on and off a lot, so be sure and make your home ring friendly. Put a few cute little bowls by the kitchen and bathroom sinks, and put one jewelry tray in your room (preferably near your bed) to catch your daily jewelry. This will keep it from getting scattered and possibly lost!
