DIY: How To Organize Earrings

April 12, 2012

As I clean my apartment and streamline my life, I’d love to share some of the tricks I’m putting into practice to keep my material possessions in check. Today I’ll show you a quick DIY I used to end the seemingly endless disarray that was my earring collection. The approximate time of putting this into action? 5 minutes.

How To Organize Your Earrings

Errm, sorry about that rogue hair that thinks it’s an earring. That’s real life, babes.

Voila! A simple way to keep your earrings on display for quick accessorization, sans-clutter. Next time I’ll show you a quick way to clean up your vanity (or wherever you do your hair/makeup in the morning).
