Get Ready, Get Set, Go Organize!
The best way to “get ready” is getting to know the contents of your jewelry box. Looking through your jewelry box will help you identify what you currently have, what you like, what you would like to get rid of. and what new and fashionable pieces you could add to your collection. It also may provide you with the opportunity to sell or donate some of your current pieces. As Marie Kondo would say “now is the time to eliminate what doesn’t make you happy!”
Per Martha Stewart, “Her "KonMari" method of simplifying and organizing the home led to the runaway bestseller "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up." She's even garnered a cult like following—they call themselves Konverts and proudly share before-and-after photos of their properly folded sock drawers and emptied closets. These Konverts were made just from reading her book. The real-life Kondo has a three-month-long waiting list.”
We at Beksan Designs are here to make you look good and feel your best. We know that when you add a cute pair of earrings or a beautiful necklace to an outfit, it can immediately uplift you. Organizing what you currently have will provide room for new pieces.
We really liked these organizing ideas in Woman’s Day at https://www.womansday.com/home/organizing-cleaning/tips/g264/10-fun-functional-jewelry-organizers-115788/.
To keep pieces from getting tangled in boxes, hang earrings around the edge of a bowl and places rings in the center. "This is a lot nicer than just tossing jewelry on the dresser, and much easier than digging through a box.”. The key is putting your jewelry and accessories in a place you can access them easily which will encourage you to wear them! There are many methods to organize, it is important to pick what will work best for YOU!
Now “get set” to clean or purge: Pull out each jewelry piece and ask yourself:
- Is it worn out or broken?
- Is it more than three years old and have you worn it?
- Are you tired of it? Is it out of style?
If you answer "yes" to any of these questions, put that item into one of three bags (consignment, donate, throw out). When the bag is full, give it to charity and take the tax write-off, or sell it at a consignment store and make some extra cash that you can use to fill gaps in your jewelry and accessory collection.
Then you’ll be ready for our new Spring 2019 arrivals that are coming soon!
