How do you store your costume jewellery?

I have accumulated an absolute ton of costume jewellery and need to think about organising it all. At the moment I have a divided section in my wardrobe which is ok for rings and earings but I have so many braclets they are all just dumped in there. Necklaces are on a coat hanger in the wardrobe as are belts and scalves but I was just wondering if there was a better storage solution.

Thinking the same myself!
Quite fancy something like this, but cheaper!

I keep my costume jewllery (that doesn't fit on my necklace hanger/small jewlery box) in a massive make up/travel bag wrapped in tissue paper/boxes (most of it is vintage/delicate).
Feels like playing a lucky dip everytime I fish out a piece!

Mumelie, that looks gorgeous!

my jewellery is deffo not vintage or delicate - it's all from high street stores and recently purchased. I REALLY want one of those chest things now! IDh will go mad if I buy one! I have absolutly no where to put one either!

Sooo want one of those chests but just too much £ at the mo. Also have had these in the past. They do really stay up (so had to leave in fitted wardrobes when we moved)! Good for necklaces, but nothing else.

I separate my costume jewellery into clear plastic food bags. They are all stored in a clear make up/travel bag from M&S.

I have a set of drawers, the ones that have a metal frame and those sort of seagrass/raffia drawers. Not particularly chic, I know, but from Next for a reasonable price and good for chunky stuff that won't fit in a jewellery box.

I have the best thing ever!!! Cork notice board on inside of wardrobe with map/drawing pins/hooks inserted then necklaces/brackets hang beautifully.
