Getting back to “normal”

It’s been almost  2 years since my hobbit died.  We, our new family, are getting to our new normal.  Part of that is getting organized.   Here’s a fun and inexpensive idea for organizing earrings   and rings:

My earrings were just sitting in my jewelry box like this, completely unorganized, which makes them hard to find.  I found these cheap pill containers at dollar tree,

and I mean they are cheap.  They will fall apart before you use them for daily medication for more than one week. But because some of the pill hldersbroke before I could get some really good use from them, I tossed some earrings in the working ones and thought “this would make a great earring organizer ”

Dollar tree online let’s you order these in bulk or you can order to pick up at your local store:

I bought 5 containers and sorted the earrings by color.  Luckily I don’t have many huge hoops or long dangling earrings.

I stacked like colors together.
