What to do, What to do…with all your EARRINGS!

I used to have a mess with my earrings. I have pierced ears as most of us do, but for this little hint it makes no difference.

One time several years ago I was complaining to my sister that I had a little box I kept my earrings in and it was always a mess and finding the mates was annoying. She suggested I use a set of ice cube trays. It has turned out to be about the best suggestion I have ever received.


They are cheap, find yours at Goodwill or the dollar store.  If you need a lot of space, they stack neatly if they are the same size/make and take up very little room on your dresser, vanity or you can even do like I do and keep them in a drawer.

Here are a few picture to give you the idea. I tend to group mine together by color and then have one little place for all the backs. If I lose a back there are always plenty more and I know where to find them. Let me know what you think.

As an added little tip, when you travel and want to take earrings and not get them on a jumbled in a baggie or little bag. Just wrap a piece of plastic cling wrap around the whole tray and stick it in your suitcase.




Marge taught LooksLikeHomemade founder, Carrie how to cook while standing on a chair in the kitchen and cracking eggs and stirring batter. She also taught her how to shop on a budget, repurpose things into new things, and what little "craftiness" Carrie has, mom is responsible.

Now she's contributing to LooksLikeHomemade, because Carrie taught Mom how to blog. Looks like things are coming full circle!
