I feel like there is an unwritten rule – bloggers must do a ‘what’s in my bag’ post once a year. I’ve done two in the past, and and they’ve shown my handbags to be messy, over filled black holes but oh me, oh my I’ve grown, I’ve changed. I’ve become one of those women with an organised handbag. Don’t hate me. I’ve come to learn if I have a small bag it can’t get too messy whereas when I take out a large bag I just fill it with more rubbish and it turns into a deep, dark, pit of despair. A few months ago I bought one of handbag organisers from eBay (they come in lots of colours and arrived at Thrifty Towers, from Hong Kong in under 2 weeks – ace) and my life seems to be operating on a whole new organisation level. Loving it.
It has lots of little compartments and zippy sections so everything has a place to live and I never have to instigate a huge search for my keys or a pen. Plus I can swap handbags on a regular basis without having to worry if I’ve transferred everything I need because I just lift the organiser doodah out and know everything is neatly packed inside it. It is full blow love, folks. Everything in those two photos above slots neatly into the outside pockets. I find it so useful knowing where everything is and I no longer have to empty out the contents of my bag on a train. No more tampons and lipsticks flung across the carriage, so that’s quite nice. The centre compartment has just enough room for my purse, a book and my sunglasses. The zipped pockets keep my brolly and Opal Fruits (I can’t bring myself to say Starburst without flinching) neat and tidy. Do you keep your bag organised? If so how? I’m always after new organisation tips and tricks. What can’t you survive without? I’ll be giving away an organised handbag package very soon, so keep your eyes peeled.
