This is one of those grab-and-go solutions for organizing your earrings and rings.
I am not big on organizing stuff. Definitely not one of my strengths. My mum cringes because my stuff is sometimes all over the place, especially jewelry. I tried storing my earrings in a box (see below) but it’s so hard to find the pairs in this box. They get entwined into each other. It’s hard to match the pair. Until this weekend, I always had trouble looking for the right earring for the outfit. Trust me, I had a pretty strong earring karma. BUT, I decided to change it this weekend.
I decided that I need something to not only keep it organized, but where I could see it all: rings, necklaces, bracelets and earrings together to coordinate quickly and easily. So, here is my quick-fix solution, which even the most creatively challenged folks can make. Actually, the wonderful thing is you don’t even have to make it. *wink*
This is what we looked like before. Can you find a perfect match? :p
So, this is what I did –
I grabbed my mum’s old net Sari cover, printed with quilted fabric on top. Usually, It is used to hang a Sari so that the outfit can be protected from dust & moisture. The pores on the net material are perfect for hanging earrings. So, there you go. It was that simple. I had to do NOTHING. I just hung the empty net cover on the wall of my wardrobe store and hung all my earrings. Now, it only takes me few seconds to spot the perfect earring to go with my outfit.
Additionally, I took some net and made small pockets on the cover to hold the studs and rings. 🙂 Now, I can happily dclare I am free of my earring karma. Are you?
Net Sari Cover
We all love to have a few favorite colors sitting out on the vanity but since nail art has become such a huge trend, you may be the proud owner of LOTS of polishes.
Here’s a fancy little idea for storing your nail polish collection for under $5. Here is how i did it –
I picked this box from a Sabda, Aurobindo Ashram, Delhi for INR 250. You can easily find this box at any stationery shop or better still you can make one at home from an old shoe-box!
You can also use a box like this to store some of your lip-colors too! 🙂
I decorated this box with my hair tic-tacs 🙂
You can put this paper box to other good uses too. I’ll be doing another post on that soon. Hope you liked this idea. If you have a bigger nail polish collection, then you need to see this – 15 beautiful ideas to organise your nail polish

“Loads of jewelry but no proper place to keep them”, “tired of those tangled chains”, “This boring jewelry box is giving me fitters”– this is exactly what is running in your head. Well this is an endless saga that you will hear from every other girl.
Organizing your chains, bangles, neck-pieces and those bundles of earrings, is surely a challenging task even for the most organized person. De-cluttering your collection not only lets you see what you own but also give access to those hidden treasures. 🙂 🙂
So here are few quick and display-worthy organizing ideas for your so lovable fashion accessories.
Use that old kitchen tool: You can organize all your earrings with the help of an old vegetable grater. Just pain it in your favorite color to add that bling.
DIY Jewelry Organizers to Make Yourself
Rakes: Tie a thick piece of string or a ribbon to an upside down rake, and its ready for your necklaces and earrings.

Old frame: Use that old mirror or photo frame to create that perfect jewelry organizer for you. Just paste a pretty lace/ribbon or string from one end to another and here you are ready with your new pet.
Egg or Ice Tray: You can put in use, your ceramic egg tray or an old ice tray to store your tiny miny treasures.
