I came back from the beach with one of my necklaces in knots. I'd packed it in a pouch, a method that's worked just fine on previous trips, but was a disaster this time around. After two unsuccessful (but brief) de-tangling sessions, I set it aside, knowing I'd have to work at this a little bit at a time, and in the meantime, I'd need to choose a different necklace.
I can't do much about my packing fiasco now, but I can make sure it doesn't happen again. This morning, I searched online for packing tips for jewelry, and came across this great blog, which I thought I'd share today so perhaps I can save someone else from making the same mistake I did.
Here are a few of Travel Fashion Girl's Traveling With Jewelry: 10 DIY Packing Tips and Tricks by STYLE:
|For the I know I put it somewhere organizer|
(I used decorated toilet paper rolls to store my electronics chargers -- inside the cardboard).
|For the cram and jammer|
(works for rings and earrings, but not for necklaces with fine chains)
|For the I need to see it personal style|
(I think I prefer her pill box idea, though).
|The one I wish I'd tried.|

See you tomorrow for 3 Keys Thursday...unless I'm still untangling my necklace.
