Hi, I’m Natalie (also known as Recessionista) from Recessionista Party and I’m honored to be guest posting today on the Idea Room. First of all, let me start by saying that Amy is fabulous-OOO in every way and I would imagine her readers are just the same. She’s equally wonderful (if not more) in person as she appears in the virtual world. Her idea library is fantastic and I’m ever amazed how she formulates all these ideas.
If you don’t know about the Recessionista site, let me just tell you that we are all about looking, feeling, and living fabulous, all for a fantastic price. We believe whole heartedly in embracing these tough economic times (that we keep hearing so much about) to be more creative about how we shop, where we shop and most importantly, the price we’re willing to pay when we shop. Simply put, a woman should never be forced to compromise her ability to look like a million bucks while only spending a few.
Just the other day, I received the following request:
“I would love to buy something (or you could give us ideas) on how to organize all the jewelery that you can buy from Recessionista. The big jewels don’t fit in my little jewelry hanger bag and I don’t know what to do. Ideas?”
That’s right, we have big jewels and small jewels. Simple necklaces and big necklaces, all of which are not made for a small little jewelry bag or box. I’ve ran across this problem myself. So here I am, on the Idea blog of blogs, to share a tidbit of knowledge and resources with you.
These types of hangers are not only for the men in your lives and quite frankly work incredibly well to easily store accessories, the best part being, they are less than $2. The hanger on the left cost 5o cents and the one on the right $2.50 at Walmart.
How cute is that? You can either buy them or if you’re real creative, get a piece of wood and some stylish doorknobs and your done, all for a fraction of the price.

There you have it, an endless supply of inexpensive yet stylish ways to store and display all the jewelry you own. I’m sure there are gazillion more creative ideas floating in cyberspace.
Gone are the days for small bags to house our jewelry and this way things are easier to see. Is there another way you display your jewelry? And what about little children, how do you keep them away from your stash?
