DIY Organizing Idea for Bangles, Watches, and Bracelets

Organize your bracelets with an old pant hanger
     I've been doing a bit of spring cleaning and organizing. One of the things that has been driving me crazy, is this box I have filled with all of my bracelets and bangles.  It's just a jumbled up pile that I always end up only wearing what's on top because I don't like sifting through the accessory chaos.  So I came up with a little plan of organizing action.  
     When I hit the thrift stores, I  always keep an eye out for organizing hangers and bins.  I usually find one or two every so often. One particular hanger I
found has three bars, and on each bar has two clips.  The arms swing forward for easy access to the garment you choose to hang.  I believe it's meant for pants, jeans, or slacks, but I imagined all of my bangles and bracelets fitting perfectly.  Lucky for me, they did.  
     I finally got to get rid of the accessory pit, and nicely organized my pretty bracelets making them easier to find and access.  I can tuck it away in a closet or hang it on the wall.  It's so convenient, especially for hard to store bracelets.   So next time you head out shopping, keep in mind a particular need, and let yourself imagine new ways you can use an item to fill that need.  If you have a hanger like this in your closet, give it new life by giving your bracelets a new home.  Next project task...finding a home for all of my cuffs that don't hang quite so nice.

  2. Love this! I need one of these, all of my bracelets are in boxes and pots and draws all over my room. Trying to find any of my jewelry is ridiculous!Thanks for posting this :)


  3. That idea may help me because I have so many accessories that I don't know where to put them. I have done sth similar with my belts.
