Repurpose as: Jewelry Case
"Forget the nice silk pouches—they don't have enough room for more than a few items," says Kimberlin Brown, a jewelry designer in New York. Put each piece in its own small bag, and then put them all into a gallon-size bag. "This keeps your chains untangled and pearls scratch-free, and lets you see all your accessory choices clearly through the bags," she says. The bags also help prevent tarnishing.
