It’s officially holiday season and with this often comes a lot of traveling. Whether you’re jet-setting to a cool party or just flying home to see your family, you’re going to have to pack everything from clothes to accessories. And if you’re looking for the best way to store necklaces when traveling, Real Simple suggests a really clever organizing tip.

All you have to do is unfasten the chain, run it through a plastic straw and reclasp it. The magazine also suggests cutting the straw to fit the length of your jewelry.

We think this is a fantastic way to not only save your necklaces from tangling but also save you a lot of time unpacking. When you're on the road you especially want to make sure everything runs smoothly and this is sure to keep you organized. Plus, this tip isn’t just good for when you’re boarding a plane or train, you can use it if you’re moving or just want to keep your accessories neat and tidy!
