For the month of April, I’m participating in the Blogging from A-Z challenge, and I will be sharing one organizing tip or featuring one organizing project for each letter of the alphabet. I hope you’ll find some ideas and inspiration!
Do you ever find yourself digging to the bottom of your purse to find your keys, chapstick, or ID? A messy purse drives me crazy, so I try to make it a priority to keep my purse organized.
Here is a bird’s eye view of my purse. This purse has a couple inside pockets where I keep my keys and phone handy. The center of the purse is where I keep everything else – it all fits in my in.bag handbag organizer from The Container Store, which has 7 interior compartments plus 2 side pockets. I LOVE this product because I can just lift it out of one purse and place it into another quickly – it makes switching purses so easy! I can also place it the bottom of my diaper bag so that I don’t have to carry a separate purse when baby’s with me.
Isn’t this little organizer just the greatest?
It holds quite a bit of stuff. I could fit a lot more in there if I wanted to, but I try not to make my purse too heavy.
These are my daily “must-haves” in my purse besides my keys and phone:
- Vaseline “Rosy Lips”
- Lavender lip balm
- Soothing salve made with essential oils
- Thieves hand sanitizer
- Mini hairbrush
- Jane Iredale powder
- Oil absorbing sheets
- Rewards cards
- Sunglasses & case
I keep my lip balm in this this chapstick cozy by The Elizabeths Designs on Etsy. Not only is it super cute, but it makes it easy to find and grab my lip balm out of my purse. I could also put it on a keychain or hook it to the strap of my purse for convenience. How cool it that?
How do you keep your purse organized?
