Space Saver - Costume Jewellery
Like most paranoid people, I keep my valuable jewellery in the safe, but what to do with the increasing number of cute necklaces that I can't resist? Either they get all tangled up in a box or on a stand or... Now I keep them on the same hangers in my wardrobe, as the outfits they match - with some latitude for mix 'n match according to the mood or projected image for the day. A further tip - when I hang up my clothes after laundering, I always choose the same end of the wardrobe - so that if I bump in to anyone who knows me (I don't care really, but it's fun) - I won't be wearing the same thing 3 days in a row. I am one of those people who would have loved to wear a uniform to work so that I didn't have to make a time-consuming choice every day. This one's for you, Sextant - if you have managed to read thus far - I place my husband's clean underpants at the bottom of the pile in his cupboard to ensure that they all get rotated and wear at the same rate. There! I bet you can't think of something intelligent to say about this post? These are not topics that occupy the minds of men.
