I'm talking necklaces, bracelets, rings, hats, belts, purses, bags and scarves. They are so cute and fun to buy, but just like clothes, be willing to edit. Keep the best of the best. The less you have, the less you need to keep organized, saving you time and energy in the future.

1 >> Get realistic. It may be cute, but will you ever wear it again? If the answer is yes, try and incorporate it into one of your outfits this week. Wear the necklace you've been saving for a special occasion just because it looks great on you! If you find at the end of the week there is nothing you can wear with this accessory, it is probably because it doesn't fit in your wardrobe.

2 >> Duplicates. If you have duplicates or something very similar, pick your favorite and donate the rest. When my daughter was younger, she always loved using my old scarves for dress up. You could also swap with friends or family members.

3 >> Can you find it? Keeping things visible so you know what you have is important. Find a system that keeps things untangled, easy to access and put away. I use these wooden drawers to store my jewelry at eye level, which works best for me. There are many different types of systems or devices that you can create on your own, or buy at a store. Check out some ideas here on my Pinterest board.

4 >> There is no right way. Remember, there is no one right way to handle accessories. You may have more or less than the average person. The important part is to make it so that you can find them, use them and enjoy them.
