Mini Haul of the Week + DIY Jewellery Organizer

Part 1 - The Haul
Let's face it, it's been a tough year with having to tighten that financial belt.  But if you come across a good deal and it fits within your budget, you are winning! (Can't help it, I know that term is over used, but it's the one thing from that Actors' ordeal that made me laugh, that and tiger blood).

Moving right along, I picked up three earrings from Ardene, that were 3 for $10, check them out below:

If you are looking for some great, fun, and inexpensive jewellery for the Xmas season, it would be worth a visit, especially since they have some great deals going on for December.

Part 2 - DIY Jewellery Organizer
One big challenge with Jewellery is organization.  I am sure that at one time or another, we have experienced the frustration of having to untangle necklaces from one another, or trying to find a favourite pair of earrings, because they got lost in the drawer.

One option is to purchase jewellery organizers; however, if you want an easy option that you can put together, then I think I have an option that works!  

Here is what you need:

- Cork Board
- Thumb tacks
- Paper Clips

Most of these items you can find around the house.  The cork board was something I inherited, so no cost there, the other items I found in the house.  For hanging your necklaces you use the Thumbtacks and for Earrings you use the Paperclips, see the pics below:

Nice and easy!
