{Decluttering & Organising} Little Girls play jewellery and makeup

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

#30 Play Jewellery

My girls can accumulate so much play jewellery, given to them as gifts or received in party bags.  All thrown into a drawer of chaos.

Together we went through the drawer and decided to do the following:

  • Throw out any broken items
  • Throw out packaging boxes
  • Throw out make-up that has been used up
  • Give to charity or her little sister items that didn’t fit her
  • Give to charity play jewellery she didn’t want to keep
  • Organised like items together using Rubbermaid containers we had in the container cupboard


Is it time for your little girl to have a clean out?

Definitely time to clean out and organise! I really should dedicate a space for all of my daughter’s play jewellery. Thanks for the inspiration Katrina!

Something I have just re-discovered as being very useful for storage is Fishing Tackle boxes. They are about $8 – $10 from Kmart. I use separate ones for storing Jewellery, Hair Clips, Sewing, and Medicines. They have little compartments, and expandable levels. They are not very pretty, but very functional!

We went through all her toys yesterday and she did help me out. Guess its a good idea to organize her accessories today! Time to look for those extra plastic bins…

Yup – I really need to do this too! I have two little girls with beautiful hair which requires lots of hair ties and clips. They also adore jewellery. Unfortunately, they play with it and then leave all the bits lying around where their little baby brother can easily get to it and eat it! Need a better solution. Thanks for the inspiration.

Love this idea – we sooo need to do it soon! I am thinking of using our left over (clean) chinese food containers.

We’re not at the play jewellery or make up stage yet, but oh my, the girls have endless hairclips and hair do-dads

“Mannie and Me”, a business on Facebook, have excellent girls accessory and jewellery organisation stations, either free standing or wall mounted, in a wonderful array of fabric and frame types, to match the decor of any little girl’s room! They have adult ones also. Worth checking out!

I did the same thing yesterday afternoon. Little girls get sooooo many little bits and pieces

Katrina July 25, 2013 - 9:57 AM

they really do Summer, and it’s these types of little bits and pieces that can make drawers really untidy.

Great idea….will be tackling on the weekend!

I love the trays you have used. I love all of your posts. You always have neat ways of storing objects. Thank you for posting.
