An Australian shopper has devised the perfect solution for storing her impressive jewellery collection of more than 50 pairs of earrings.
Posting an image to a Kmart hacks Facebook group, Kayla, from Sydney, said she resorted to buying a cheap but sturdy mesh sheet from Bunnings Warehouse to peg the earrings onto.
‘Thought I’d share for anyone with a dilemma of an overloaded supply of earrings and nowhere to store them,’ she wrote.
‘[The] mesh sheet [was] bought from Bunnings and craft pegs from any dollar stores.’

The wired mesh panel priced at $16.99 was placed on the wall using plastic hooks and worked well at hanging the jewellery when it’s not being used.
In order for the ‘hack’ to work, the earrings remained in the original packaging that was pegged to the mesh – revealing many earring were purchased from Lovisa.
The clever idea would be useful to ensure you can always see where the earrings are and if any are missing.

While Kayla shared the idea with the aim to help others, many were impressed with the size of her jewellery collection itself.
‘I’m glad I’m not the only one who has an abundance of earrings,’ one person said.
‘And I thought I had an earring problem,’ another joked, a third added: ‘I thought this was an op shop!’
To ensure the jewellery doesn’t attract dust, Kayla said she vacuums every second day and dusts daily.
‘This is my makeup room, not a room where my kids run in and out, and most often the doors are closed,’ she said.
