My Organized Handbag

Monday, September 9, 2013

If you know me well, you know that I love large handbags so I can carry all my stuff around…. And I don’t just mean all of it, I mean like, if I was stranded on an island… I could use everything in my purse to survive! 

I used to just throw everything in my bag, but then I got frustrated with that method for a few reasons:

I would get pen marks and key scratches on everything.
I would rummage around inside and end up bending, folding, and scuffing most of my items.
I had things leak and spill.
I couldn’t find ANYTHING!!!

So here’s a look at my organized purse now.  I even threw in some labels so you see exactly what I do!  

Inside my bag I have a purse organizer called a Purseket which has a compartment for almost everything and anything.  I hold it together with a binder clip (Yep, that’s right) because I want it to securely hold some of my other items in the middle of my bag.  

Starting in the upper left hand corner you’ll see there’s a pocket for my makeup compact and in the one to the right of it, I keep another makeup compact. 

Next, I keep a thin business card holder and a small red coin purse that I got from subscribing to a magazine.  This is a must have since I don’t have an actual wallet.

Next, is a concealed compartment that has a Velcro flap over it.  I keep a pocket knife in there.   You never know when you will need it!

Next is a slot for feminine products and a slot for pens. 

Beside that is a pocket where I keep my gum and then next to that is where I keep my checkbook.

In the center of my handbag I keep my sunglasses case as well as my cash envelope system and my Filofax!

There’s also a beauty bag which came free from Target and I keep a mini pair of sewing scissors in there as well as some ointments and creams!

And finally, I keep my keys on a purse hanger so that I never have to root around in my bag for them, and I also keep my USB drive and anything else that needs to be kept separate in the inside zipper pocket. 

And there you have it!
