It's coming. My 30th birthday arrives this week. I have mixed feelings about it, but suppose I might as well embrace it. To be honest, I have dreaded it since I turned 29, but as it approaches, it doesn't seem all that bad. Just another day, right?
Some bloggers have created lists of things to do before they turn 30. I love reading about them and celebrate with them as they cross one of their list. I particularly enjoy Nicole's 30 Before Thirty list, as she is turning 30 shortly after me and has made a significant dent in her list.
Me, however, I'm just not that disciplined. Instead, I have my own little list of things to do once I am 30. Like take a yoga classes, make a point to send birthday cards, floss more often, be more dedicated to running and become organized. Ask me when I'm 31 how it went.
So... I was going through my jewelry the other day and realized I need to find a better way of keeping it all organized. Step one toward being more organized! I've got necklaces hanging on doors and bracelets and earrings in random drawers around the house.
I do have one system that I like, if I could teach myself to just put things away.
I use ice cube trays to keep my earrings.
Maybe it isn't pretty, but I know what I have in a glance. Besides, it's hidden in a drawer.
Sherry at YHL, uses a porcelain egg crate.
I love this idea from Martha Stewart. What a great way to use your china.
It would be fun to have a reason to collect it too.
What about a muffin tin or cutlery tray? Who knew kitchen items could be so useful to your wardrobe?
How cool is this nuts and bolts organizer? It's like the Wheel of Fortune of jewelry selection.
If you want your jewelry out where you can see it. I like these ideas.

What about you? Any other good ideas for me?
*I am nearly 30 and spelled jewelry 3 different ways during this post. I actually had to look it up. Apparently, we spell it differently than the British. Who knew?
