The other day I told you how much I love plastic divider boxes to help organise things around my house and shared with you my stash of batteries organised in one.
And my vitamins stored in a smaller one in my kitchen.
Another way I use them is to store my jewellery.
Now this tip might not be for everyone. I know there are ladies out there who have the pleasure of putting on a new pair of dangly earrings every morning and look fab in some pretty necklaces. I know because when I see you out and about, I look on in envy. For you ladies you might like a more accessible method with which to store your jewellery.
Sadly as a mum to a 6 month old, wearing my favourite jewellery is asking for tears, literally! Either crying over something being broken by little fingers, or an earlobe being severely tugged at. I just don’t get to wear jewellery that often. I wear my rings and a couple of stud type earrings but that is it. So having all my jewellery on hand is really not a priority. But then, I have never liked my jewellery to take up prime real estate in my bedroom or walk -in-robe. I have always kept it packed away, and at times not so neatly thrown into drawers or boxes.
After some bust-ups with my then 2-year-old, who could remove every piece of jewellery from my drawer in a matter of seconds, I decided a firmly locking jewellery box would deter his ‘fun’. My shopping missions did not raise a suitable vessel until my husband dragged me through the fishing section of a department store. Amongst the tackle boxes were these plastic boxes.
These boxes were perfect as they had removable dividers so I could allocate more space to larger pieces of bling. I found grouping my items in the boxes by colour was the best way to find the jewellery I was looking for.
Now they pack away neatly in my bedroom and the kiddos can’t manage to open the box to play with my jewellery.
