Let’s be real: how many of the accessories in your dresser do you still wear? Be practical and conduct an inventory. Pick out the accessories you no longer use and give them away. If you’re up for it and want to make some cash, sell them online or hold a garage sale. This way, you free your dresser from clutter and make more room for new accessories.


2. Find the perfect spot

Sometimes your dresser can only hold so much products of makeup and lotion thereby, leaving no room for accessories. With this, find a special nook in your room and make this your new accessories haven. Just make sure to place a small desk or side table to hold all your containers and racks.


3. Store according to use

Organize your accessories according to use. Meaning, put all your necklaces in one rack while all your bangles in another rack. This will allow you to locate your preferred accessory for the day faster and easier. You no longer have to sift through a messy bowl filled with all your accessories jumbled together.


4. Utilize hooks

If you have scrap lace lying around the house, use this as earrings holder. All you will need to find is a frame to hold it and give it structure.

If you ran out of hooks to store your bracelets, fret not because bottles and vases can do the trick! Simply stack your bracelets in the necks of the bottles or vases. You may even opt to decorate your bottles or vases to give your space a fun look.

Dividers are of great help especially if you’re storing small pieces such as rings and earrings in drawers or boxes. This prevents misplacement and mix ups of small accessories.

This way, they don’t get mixed up with other accessories meant for special occasions. Also, it’s more efficient and faster this way since you save yourself from the stress of going through all your accessories.
