life is a journey not a destination
If you are like most women, you have a lot of jewelry of all types in your jewelry box. What to do with all of it? It’s overwhelming to think about much less do anything about! Know this: you can manage your jewelry as part of your ongoing plan to simplify your life – ready? Let’s do this!
First, choose a time when you have a couple of hours to yourself. If you attempt to squeeze this in among all the other things you need to do, you’ll just end up frustrated! Now get yourself a nice cup of tea or coffee and settle in for an enjoyable afternoon of simplifying your life, one necklace at a time!
You probably have a fairly large pile of jewelry once you get it all out to begin the process of paring down and simplifying. Here are some simple steps to take:
First, sort your jewelry into 3 piles (at this point, don’t pay attention to cost of the pieces):
1. Jewelry you absolutely love, for whatever reason – maybe it was a gift from someone special or something you bought for yourself and still love.
2. Jewelry pieces that are your “staple” items – the jewelry you wear over & over, day after day and day into night.
3. Jewelry you once loved but now….not so much
4. Jewelry that you never loved & still don’t.
So now you have two main categories – #1 & #2 above are your “keepers”.
Categories #3 and #4 are the ones we need to think about a little more.
We will tackle this in the next post so stay tuned!
