maniacal organized experience, bringing jewelry along when traveling often goes something like this:
1. Pick out outfits for each day and occasion, matching jewelry to each.
2. Lay everything out on the bed and begin packing by outfit.
3. Put each set of jewelry in its own jewelry pouch and pack it next to its corresponding outfit.
4. Arrive at destination and spend 15 minutes untangling necklaces and locating individual earrings that slipped out of their pouch.
What a way to ruin what started off as a well-organized plan!
Whether you choose to select jewelry for each outfit as I do, or make it simple and bring a capsule jewelry wardrobe, you can save some wasted untangling time and a good dose of annoyance by packing each type of jewelry properly.
