Okay, I've never posted about something crafty or handy before, so bear with me. I'm new to the being crafty thing. But it's fun! In fact, I have things in mind that I want to try my hand at. I'll show you when they're done :-)
My husband is really into organization. He labels all of his drawers, including his dresser! He just loves the feeling of having everything in its perfect place. I have never really been like that. I am to an extent, I have organized chaos (places dedicated to being unorganized.) I know where my things are, and its a system that works for me.
However, my husband is rubbing off on me. The other day I actually wanted to organize more. Weird. So, I got to work. I organized all the surfaces in our home.
Including this one. I forgot to take a before picture, this is the after. All of my jewelry would end up on this surface. My necklaces would be tangled, and my earrings hard to find. I needed a solution, but jewelry holders in the store cost money, and money is tight.
So, I grabbed an extra comb
And my wonderful husband drilled it into the top of one of my bin things
I then hung my necklaces into the prongs of the comb! It works great! I have 1-2 empty prongs empty between each necklace that way I don't accidentally take more than one off when I want it.
It's perfect. It isn't taking up any needed space, and it saves me a few minutes in the morning when I need a necklace. Yay for simple and inexpensive solutions!
Are you like me and keep organized chaos, or more like my husband and like to keep things in their right places? Do you have any tips for organizing?
