Easy Earring Organization in Under 5 Minutes for Under $10

Living in an RV or small space means finding creative ways to store, display, or organize jewelry. I don't have a lot of jewelry, but I do love earrings and necklaces. Storing earrings has been a thorn in my side for years. I have a small box that I've been keeping them in, but they get tangled with other earrings. I had to find another way. A major overlooked space available for organizing is doors. I had plenty of space to hang earrings on the inside of my bathroom pantry door. How to make an easy earring organizer in under 5 minutes for under $10: Step 1: Start with a roll of burlap garland/ribbon .

How to Prepare a Small Space for a New Baby

Organizing the RV Basement

The basement of an RV can vary in size greatly. Ours is a huge pass-through, so we use a number of organizers to keep everything neatly packed and organized. On the side of the basement just outside the front door is where we keep all of our outdoor necessities. In the back, a hard-to-reach area, is where we store Christmas decorations and less used outdoor items such as fishing gear , a hammock , and tarps in large plastic bins . We use plastic crates to store awning lights and sports equipment.

We also have some folding tables . We have a large outdoor mat , but we fold it up and store it in the front storage area under the bulkhead. We also have a portable
