I tried to be as productive as I could today on my day off. I spent most of the day doing laundry. (We switched up laundry days in the household and I HAD to be done by today.) I also forced myself to clean and organize my jewelry box. My sister Andee thought I may have picked up one of her necklaces by mistake, so I had to go through it all to make sure. I had a major obsession with jewelry not that long ago. (I'm still a little addicted, but not nearly as bad.) So for my birthday one year, my parents bought me one of those free standing jewelry 'cabinets' that has 8 drawers and 2 swinging doors on the side. Its completely full. Trying to find a small, simple silver chain in there is literally like finding a needle in a haystack. Thus the plan to completely clean out and organize the dang thing.
It took me almost 2 hours!! Unfortunately I had about 6 small silver chains WITH charms on them that were all knotted up; I had to use 2 pairs of tweezers and a WHOLE bunch of patience to get it out. Thankfully I had plenty of recorded TV to have on in the background to keep me level headed and focused.
I didn't find Andee's necklace, but I did get it all organized - sans the bottom 2 drawers. There are several necklaces and bracelets I don't wear that I refuse to get rid of...yes I'm a jewelry hoarder. But what if they come back in fashion or I buy a new outfit that would go with one of them perfectly? I actually added some necklaces to those drawers because I find that after organizing - I just don't have enough room!!!
#131 - Here is ONE of the 2 1/2 drawers dedicated to just earrings and rings! Seriously - that's a lot...I may have a problem.
