How To Organize Your Purse

In this video I’m going to show you how to organize your purse to make it easier for you to switch out purses when you want to coordinate with your outfit.  I know you can relate to how frustrating it is switching out the contents of one purse to another.  I mean, we tend to keep all kinds of stuff in our purses like jams n jellies, wallets, makeup, eyeglasses, sunglasses, tissues, notebooks, snacks, gum, umbrellas, and who knows what else!  Makes you wonder if it’s even worth going through all the effort?  Well, it can be worth it if you just simplify the process.  Here are some tips on how to make it easier:

Get all your stuff out and start categorizing them into like items:  makeup, lotions and sanitizer, gum and snacks, wallet, medicines, etc.

Toss any expired or icky looking items.  Yeah…that 5 year old bottle of lotion?  You can feel free to let that go! Oh…and that gum that is now hard as a rock?  Yes that can go too!

Contain your items.  There are lots of different purse organizers out there.  In the video I show you a simple one that I use that lets me easily move the contents from one purse to another.  You can do an internet search or go to Amazon where they have different types.  If these purse organizers seem to restrictive, you could also use a variety of toiletry and makeup pouches to hold your different categories of purse items.  That way you’ll be able to easily pull out just the pouches instead of every little item you have!

Use light colored purse organizers:  I love light colored purse interiors because it makes it so much easier to see what you have inside your purse.  But if the inside of your purse is dark, try using light or brightly colored pouches to make it easier to see and find them.

Don’t overload your purse.  Just put in your purse what you absolutely need on a regular basis.  Consider putting any other “just in case” items in your car.

So those are just a few tips to help you organize your purse.  In case you’re interested (because I get asked about it all the time) I ordered the purse from our affiliate link. Here’s a direct link to the item on Amazon: Saddleback Leather Tote (Large) in Chestnut.  Yes, I know, it’s an indulgence but I absolutely love this purse and all my other Saddleback Leather products.

So there you have it! You can see just how easy an organized purse will make your life by checking out the video below:
