How many times have you gone to get ready and can’t find that one accessory you were counting on to complete your look? For me, mornings come too early and I often find myself rushing to get out the door. And nothing’s more stressful when you just can’t seem to find what you need.
I’ve tried many different organizational ways to keep my earrings in order in the past (plastic bead organizer boxes, those metal boards with the million different holes). But for me, those just didn’t make the cut. I like to have easy access to things and have them in a place where they are easy to take out and then put back in their proper spots.
I would have never thought that a look in the junk drawer would be the solution to all my problems. A shoelace. I simply tied a shoelace from one side of my shelf unit (from IKEA) to the other side (and back again) until it was super tight. And BOOM, I had discovered what I had been searching for all my life (ok, slight exaggeration).
All my dangling earrings stay in their place and it makes for a beautiful display of my collection (earring addiction). It just goes to show that you don’t have to spend money on some fancy contraption to solve those simple problems.
