Quick and inexpensive jewelry storage

Since Consume or Consumed is approaching its fourth blogiversary, I've been revisiting some past posts and flickr outfit sets to see how my style has/hasn't changed. I noticed that one of the things I did with more regularity in the past was rotate from a wider swath of jewelry. After contemplating why I was so set in the ways of my recent accessories rotation, I determined that if I can't easily access or see it, I forget about it.

Roxy from Effortless Anthropologie inspired me to correct the matter with some transparent/translucent and stacking/vertical storage options. We have no Container Stores in Pittsburgh so I went to Michael's. While there, I found divided tackle box type bins for beads on sale for just $1. I bought a few along with the stackable twist offs and started organizing. Above are my favorite vintage brooches. Hopefully it will help to have them organized this way instead of tucked underneath necklaces and bracelets in my jewelry boxes!

I like the idea of jewelry box from Michael

It's so true that if you can't easily access or see something then you forget you have it and it doesn't get much rotation. I'm in the process of applying this to my closet right now. I'm sorting things by season and getting rids of huge volumes of things I don't love.

I hope we get to see more of your great jewelry now that you have a better system! Looks like you have some wonderful pieces.

Thanks for this! I have the kind that hang flat in my closet...it's a lifesaver. Now I just need more jewelry in it.
