Jewellery

This week it's all about jewellery - how to declutter it and how to organise it!



From costume jewellery to the nice stuff (not that costume stuff isn't nice!), it's all covered.

Show Notes:

Statistic (courtesy of Daily Mail 2014)

Most women of 40 years old have a jewellery collection worth $11.5k Au

Could include up to 150 pieces- most expensive item generally an engagement ring

Only 33 per cent of jewellery is worn regularly

9% of women sell/ remodel unwanted pieces

78% women said they had no intention of selling unwanted items

​​

What are the best ways to declutter?

Lay all jewellery items out together (on white sheet or other light surface to make sure items don’t get lost)

Sort into categories - earrings/ necklaces/ watches

Let go of broken ones that you won’t repair immediately

Store sentimental ones that you won’t wear away from your everyday pieces

Only keep the original boxes/ containers if you actually use them

Consider gifting sentimental or heirloom items to family members

Sell & donate what you don’t love and use



Questions to ask yourself when re-organising:

Do I want it on display?

Do I want it hidden/ out of sight?

Where is convenient? Where do I put it on and take it off?



What are the best ideas for storage?

Large shallow drawers in dresser/ cupboard

Stacked jewellery boxes

Compartments for watches/ rings etc

Necklace stands/ hangers

Wall hooks/ peg board/ cork board with tacks

Bon Maxie - accessory storage

Clear containers with dividers (fishing tackle/ craft items)

Display sentimental items that you wont wear in a shadow box or similar to honour the piece and person
