Living in Style: More Stackable Jewelry Organizers!


Since my previous post about stackable jewelry organization, my efforts have taken a turn as I repurposed the Household Essentials 3pc stacking jewelry trays @Target for drop earrings, hoops, crawlers, & front-to-back earrings, which meant that I had to find a new home for the necklaces & bracelets that once resided in them. Luckily, a few weeks ago, I found the Linus Fashion Vanity & Drawer Organizer Jewelry Organizer Tray in clear @Walmart ($14.99). See below:

Once I filled the 4 I ordered, I saw that my jewelry inventory of short chain & pendant necklaces & chain bracelets was still greater than the organization pieces that I had. I wanted to keep the like items together in a way that would be both visible & organized, so I sought to reorder them, but they were no longer in stock!

As my search continued, I discovered the mDesign stackable plastic storage jewelry box – 2 organizer trays with lids in clear @Amazon, which were equal in size to the Walmart ones, so I knew I could stack more in the deep drawers of the nightstand, even if some of the trays were a little different in how they’re divided up.

As I combined the different trays, I actually found the lids useful in order to ensure that everything was level & I could open & close the drawer without any issues. Here is the end result:

Drawer with stacked trays. I still have plans for the remaining space here with different clear trays & containers.
Stack #1: silver short pendant necklaces on top.
Stack #1 with 5 levels stacked, combining both the Walmart & Amazon trays.
Stack #1: rose gold / silver necklaces.
Stack #1: gold necklaces.
Stack #1: more gold necklaces.
Stack #1: older items from my younger days, like my nameplate, shell rings, multicolor stone charms, & dolphin pendants.
Stack #2: silver bracelets.
Stack #2 with 5 levels stacked, combining both the Walmart & Amazon trays.
Stack #2: gold bracelets with charms & pendants.
Stack #2: more gold bracelets with charms & pendants.
Stack #2: gold bracelets with beads, charms, & pendants, along with my few pins.
Stack #2: silver necklaces.

How do you organize your jewelry? Do you use clear trays for stacking or do you stick to a traditional jewelry box?

Living in Style: The Perfect Organizer for Watches, Bracelets, Bangles, & Cuffs from Amazon!


This past weekend was especially productive as I beat the heat & stayed indoors with my daughter who helped me organize my expansive jewelry collection, including my extra abundant & sparkly watch & bracelet collection, thanks to years of working in retail & a lot of shopping indulgence during my bachelorette days.

About 3 weeks ago, I posted about organizing my statement necklaces, using a gray display stand from Target. Without even attempting to coordinate my growing inventory of storage & organization items, I found a companion pair of velvet bracelet & watch holders. My goal is to have as much as I can visible, so that I can assess what to donate during this process, but also, what to keep! On a day-to-day basis, I need to actually see what I have so I can to choose it & wear it, beyond it just taking up space in my cloffice & remaining ignored from my wardrobe & accessory rotation.

However, with the 2-pack of Diommell velvet bracelet holder with 3-tier rack jewelry display stand watch bangle bar necklace storage organizer in gray @Amazon ($32.99), I was able to sort out the watches by metal / band color (rose gold, gold, silver, & white), although some of them are in desperate need of repair & cleaning after being boxed up for so long.

Also, I appreciate that the pair of stands are made in 7 soft separate pieces that are easy to assemble & disassemble for when picking out what to wear on a tired night before work or hurried morning getting ready.

The below pictured stand with my watches & cuffs doesn’t have a proper shelf in my cloffice, yet so these will be sitting pretty on my desk until shelving is in place. Also, I was able to fit 24 watches of varying size on it & I have 2 more that will be added to the stand once the bands are repaired. For the picture, though, the stand is sitting on my couch!

Yes, all the watches read different times because all of the batteries are dead, having been in storage for over 2 years. Have no fear, they will stylishly tick again!

For the $32.99 price, I was pleased that there were 2 stands, so that I could devote another one entirely to my stretch bracelets as well. This makes my styling time much more efficient & I am reminded of what I have on a regular basis so as not to buy repeats, no matter the deal or how pretty they may be!

Having worked from home for 15 months & keeping my accessorizing at a bare minimum, I’m so happy to be reunited with these stylish pieces & inspired to explore how to incorporate them into my everyday looks. Although, I just have to decide if the day will be a “watch day” or a “bracelet day” as I prefer to keep my right wrist free since I write with my right hand. Oh, the drama! Also, I still have to revisit the bracelet stand to be much more meticulous about sorting the colorful bracelets by bead color.

Living in Style: Stackable & Sophisticated Jewelry Trays from Target!


As Mission: Get Organized continues, I feel like I’ve accomplished so much, but still have a long way to go; however, I haven’t lost my motivation. Having a reliable, stylish system is key to maintaining home organization in my cloffice & it’s of the utmost importance for my ample fashion jewelry collection that I’ve gifted myself during my years as a blogger, in retail, & as a stylist.

Specifically, I have made efficient use of the Household Essentials 3pc stacking jewelry trays in seafoam @Target (on sale: $34.41), which are also available in graphite linen (on sale: $31.86) & black linen ($33.56).

Months ago, I purchased 2 of these online, not quite knowing how I’d use them since I already have a few other stacking trays & jewelry boxes, but I knew I’d need plenty of options. While the trays can store all types of jewelry in varying sizes, I selected only shorter pendant necklaces & drop earrings—although I have 2 more sets of trays on the way, which was an even sweeter deal after Target’s $10 off $50 Circle offer! I love the bright color, which matches perfectly with my cloffice, along with the soft linen fabric!

I appreciate how everything can be seen in each layer & once I can see all of my jewelry, I’ll create a better system in storing by metal (gold tone, silver tone, or rose tone) or bead color, along with type of earring (chandelier, beaded, dangle, threaders, etc.) or if a pair has multiples in different colors, which will be helpful when I know I want a certain type of earring or necklace in a specific metal.

For the final image, I’m unsure how I’ll use the ring space since I’d like to keep this tray solely for necklaces, but perhaps once I recover all of my necklace extenders, I’ll be able to keep them here as well.
