An organizational tip- Earring Organizer

I hate searching for the match to a favorite set of earrings. I remember when I was younger it was the "in" to do, to have the place your hang all of your earrings be really decorative and hang on your wall. If that is your style, great, have at it.

I prefer something a little more organized that can then be organized into something else. So here is my take. Go to Wal-Mart, in the craft/beading section find a bead box. They are about $6. There are lots of styles but the one pictured above is my favorite. The little circles are in a case together but then each circle comes out too. That way you don't have to dump the entire case when you can't quite get the earring you want. I love how clear the case is, I just have to glace to find my earrings. I also use one of the circles for earring backs, so that I am not searching for those anymore either.

Do you have any great organizational tips?

This is so smart! We saw an earring vendor at the farmer's market using wire mesh office organizers (garbage can, the thingy that you prop papers up on so you can type, etc) to display her earrings. I loved it!

As nothing in my life is organized, including my earrings, I have no other tips to offer. :)
